Site Rules
These are basically the normal rules youd expect any site to have, you can read them here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=132474

The not so obvious rules we have are:
- Dont make "thank you" posts. These posts spam the forum and when thee are too many make it extremely hard to find something. If you wish to say thank you add something usful to your post (not just "Thanks, works great") or rate the thread. You can also donate WRZ$ as a thank you.
- Please do not request personal serial keys in the release topics. If you need a serial, request it here: viewtopic.php?p=112833#112833

The WRZ$ System
Mobilism has a currency system for its members. Our cash system, which can be seen under the name of a user who posted and in the profile, functions as a currency which users can earn and spend. There lots of ways to make and use this cash on the site, as well as a specific code for how much one can earn per release. For more information read this: viewtopic.php?p=10#10

Also, for all the geniuses who try creating several accounts and handing WRZ$ from one account to the other, seriously, dont bother. You just end up looking stupid like these guys: viewtopic.php?p=6123#6123, viewtopic.php?p=82217#82217 (and a number of other users).

Returns for WRZ$
Aside from being able to use your WRZ$ for various requests on the forum and as a thank you payment, there are also several services that are more or less "sponsored" by the site, on which you can spend your WRZ$. Read more here: viewtopic.php?p=408522#408522

Usergroups
Mobilism has a lot of different usergroups, all of which give different advantages to members (such as access to VIP Areas and rapidshare/megaupload accounts). For a full list and description of all usergroups, read this: viewtopic.php?p=94197#94197

VIP Area & VIP Privileges
The VIP area contains the following sections: VIP Releases, VIP Requests and VIP Talk. VIP requests tend to be processed more quickly (and also have a larger minimum payment than the normal request sections- 150 WRZ$). The VIP Releases section contains material that does not get released in public for all kinds of reasons. Keep in mind that both VIP Releases and Requests, can be for PC, not just mobile devices unlike in the rest of the site. A final VIP privilege is being able to use our rapidshare and megaupoad premium accounts. This will be discussed in the following section.

Rapidshare and Megaupload Premium Accounts
We here at Mobilism provide rapidshare.com and megaupload.com premium account access to our valued members. This includes the VIPs, Major Warez Releasers, Crackers, ROM Cookers, and Release Testers. You do not actually receive a password and login, instead you will gain access to an input bar at the bottom of any Mobilism page (or you can download the browser plugin so that this bar goes in your search bar spot for quick access), that will allow you to download any rapidshare or megaupload hosted file through one of our many accounts. As much as Id love to give out passwords, we've had several cases in which users stole the shared premium accounts, so this system guarantees that the accounts stay safe.

Becoming a VIP & Donating to the site
Mobilism operates off of donations. You will find no ads here. So if you like the site, please consider sending us some money by PayPal or egold (paypal preferable). If you are not familiar with paypal, its a very easy and secure system to send money online. The company paypal is owned by ebay, and both are perfectly trustworthy. Keep in mind that users who donate $10 or more receive VIP status, and users who donate $80 or more receive platinum status. VIP Status comes with lifetime access to rapidshare and megaupload premium accounts, our VIP areas, and other benefits. The list of Platinum status benefits is long. All of the information about donating can be found here: viewtopic.php?p=7425#7425

Who Runs the Site?
The guys in red are the administrators, they have the most power and authority. XVI, Farshid, Disk4Mat, MrFuFU, wam and kareem are the forum administrators.

The guys in green are the moderators. They are just as dedicated (sometimes even more) as our administrators and although they have a lesser rank, they are the law here just as much as the administrators. The moderators Guy1731 and andree spearhead various projects including the many services (viewforum.php?f=119), Release Testing (viewtopic.php?p=148799#148799), contests that are held, CAB file additions to releases, and all sorts of other useful enterprises.

The guys in brown on that list are coders who are part of the staff. They are also moderators, and are active in the Cracking sections.

All of the staff members have a say in how the site is run and the decisions that are taken to operate it.

How the Site Works- The sections
The site is organized into a number of sections. On the front page you'll see the announcements, free talk, suggestions/feedback, private areas if you have access to any, and most importantly the mobile operating systems this site focuses on. Once you enter the forum of the operating system you're interested in, you will see various types of release and request sections, and discussion sections. The Movies and eBooks forums are shared by all of the Operating Systems sections because the same movie and ebook releases work on all devices and operating systems.

The release section are subdivided into categories. If you click on X Releases (X being software, games, movies, etc.), you will see all of the releases of that type available. If you click on X Releases by Category you will have the option to choose more specifically what kind of release from that type you're interested in. All releases have to be posted in X Releases (X being software, games, movies, etc.), you will be unable to post in any of the X Releases by Category sections. Once a moderator checks your post and rewards it, he or she will move to the appropriate category.

The requests sections are mostly self-explanatory. They have two sub-forums: Requests and Fulfilled Requests. Requests are posted in Requests, moved by a moderator to Fulfilled requests once they are fulfilled, and locked once the promised reward for them has been paid. If a request receives no responses for more than 50 days, it will be automatically deleted.

How the Site Works- Releases
One of the reasons why this site is so popular is because of its required release format. This format makes releases clearer and more organized. To be rewarded and stay without getting deleted by one of our moderators, a release has to be in accordance to our format. This format is the same for software, games, and GPS, but different for ROMs, eBooks and Movies. Each section has a "How to Post a Release" sticky explaining how a release in that section has to be formatted. Sometimes moderators may correct your mistakes in release posts, but if this is the case they are allowed to give the person posting the release a lower reward. Each properly formatted release will receive a WRZ$ reward depending on numerous factors (see "The WRZ$ System" at the beginning of this guide). Once a release is rewarded it is also moved to one of the categories (for ex. Software Releases by Category > System Utilities).

Keep in mind that if you have trouble posting releases in the proper way you can also use Mobilism Releaser Tool, a program that automatically formats your posts based on information you are asked to enter.

How the Site Works- Requests
Requests are simple. You need something that exists and you know the name of it, just not on this site (you have to know the name of the application you want, you cant just make a request for a program that, for example, gathers your top ten most called numbers and puts them on your home screen) you make a post asking if somebody already has it, or if somebody can obtain it. You have to set a WRZ$ reward that you will give to the person who fulfills your request (if this happens). The minimum reward will be listed once you try to create a topic in a Requests forum.

If you fail to pay the promised amount of WRZ$, a moderator may subtract a larger than what you promised amount from your account to pay back the person fulfilling your request (the person who fulfilled the request will still get the regular amount), and based on your history on the site you may receive a temporary ban.

How the Site Works- Services
Services were created to keep the forum free from serials and Cab-file/mirror requests. Most important services are: Serial/key service, for those unable to run a keygen or don't have access to a desktop PC, Mirror service providing download links on specific servers, and CAb file requests for those releases not yet edited with CAB links or when existing links are dead. Services are managed by Guy1731 and andree, and can be found here: viewforum.php?f=119

Contacting the Staff
If you want to alert the staff of something that requires their attention, click on the Image beneath any post.

This should be done in the case of:
- an unrewarded release or an edited release that should now be rewarded
- an fulfilled/unpaid request
- a fulfilled/paid request
- an unrewarded mirror
- off topic posts
- spam

Or other things that may require the presence of a moderator.

Please dont post in a topic saying you need a moderator to do something! Though chances are a moderator will indeed look at the topic and take care of it, its much easier for us if you report the topic.

If you want to contact one of the staff members personally you can obviously pm them.

Additionally if you cannot login you can either email me at lifehacker [at] ppcwarez.org or post here: viewtopic.php?p=290544#290544 (guests can post in this topic). If you need to personally contact me for some other reason you can also use that email- lifehacker [at] ppcwarez.org (or if the site is down lifehacker [at] safe-mail.net).
