I've been having trouble finding a link to the forum rules and/or ToS.  Upon quite a bit of searching I came across the medals and warning section in the help area.  This lead me to the forum rules link, but the link is broken.

 

Am I overlooking some obvious link to the board rules?  And if I am not overlooking it, and it is in fact missing, I guess my suggestion is to make it more obvious and accessible to new members, especially upon signing up.

Here are the forum rules: http://gtaforums.com...-7-forum-rules/

There is a current bug which doesn't display them on the current skin - They are meant to display above forums, as you can see if you decide to switch to the old theme by pressing 'Change Theme' in the bottom left and selecting 'GTAForums 2013'

The forum rules appear in the announcement section on the top of the page of every forum (excludes the Community Index) - but only on the 'GTAForums 2013' skin. The 2014 skin doesn't seem to support it... yet. The following link leads you to the forum rules: http://gtaforums.com...-7-forum-rules/.

EDIT: Beaten.

It's classed as an announcement, they are different to normal topics and lack features such as reply, like, dates etc.

In terms of finding it, It should appear at the top of each forum (above the pinned topics) yet doesn't on this skin at the moment (using the GTAForums 2013 skin, you will be able to see it).

I'd say it was still valid, the general forum rules don't really go into that sort of detail for modding.

The link may not be showing for a few reasons but am assuming it's being worked on. But this is the general code for the link to display on the index.
 
Admin CP -> Look & Feel. Open up "globalTemplate".
 
Find:
 
					<if test="privvy:|:$this->settings['priv_title']">
					<li class='right ipsType_smaller'>
						<a rel="nofollow" href='{parse url="app=core&amp;module=global&amp;section=privacy" template="privacy" seotitle="false" base="public"}'>{$this->settings['priv_title']}</a>
					</li>
					</if>
 
Add below:
 
                    <if test="siteruleslink:|:$this->settings['gl_show'] and $this->settings['gl_title']">

                        <li class='right ipsType_smaller'>

                            <a href='<if test="ruleslink:|:$this->settings['gl_link']">{$this->settings['gl_link']}<else />{parse url="app=forums&amp;module=extras&amp;section=boardrules" base="public"}</if>' title='<if test="siterulestitletitle:|:$this->settings['gl_title']">{$this->settings['gl_title']}<else />{$this->lang->words['board_rules']}</if>'><if test="siterulestitle:|:$this->settings['gl_title']">{$this->settings['gl_title']}<else />{$this->lang->words['board_rules']}</if></a><if test="privvyMiddot:|:$this->settings['priv_title']"> &middot; </if>

                        </li>

                    </if>

                </ol>

            </div>
I'm not suggesting nor am I assuming that the skin designer doesn't know this...I am merely just giving some help in case the above line of code isn't in the globalTemplate.
