  • What is warez?
    Applications/themes/games/icon packs etc which require a user to purchase them before using, when these are distributed without requiring payment, it is called warez.

Off late, we had to do cleanup of several threads which were distributing or discussing warez. A reminder to all, we simply do NOT tolerate distributing paid apps for free on XDA. This is a community of people who make such apps/games, and warez distribution hurts the very community that we aim to serve.

If you haven't already, please do read the forum rules. Failure to comply will lead to an infraction/ban.

  • What to do if a thread is distributing warez/breaking any other forum rule?
    The best way to deal with such an issue is to use the yellow triangle button found on the top of every post. This is an anonymous way to alert us (moderators) to possible rule violations, and then we can take corrective action. Avoid posting in the thread pointing the rule violation (for eg, "Hey bro, that is warez. Remove it or I will complain!") as this often escalates into members fighting each other, and we do not want that.

Simply report and move on. We will deal with it.

The yellow/orange triangle button is present on top of every post in the browser view. For reference, here is a screenshot:

Press the report button for the offending post. If there are multiple offending posts, report the first offending post.
