CONSOLEMODS.ORG MAKES NO GUARANTEE OF VALIDITY OR SAFETY

ConsoleMods.org at https://www.ConsoleMods.org/ is the online home of a repository of information regarding video game consoles and modifications. The community working here is a voluntary association of individuals and groups who are developing an open-content common resource of different media and human technical knowledge. The structure of this site, which is a "wiki", allows anyone with an Internet connection and World Wide Web browser to alter the content found here, with edits becoming published after peer review. Therefore, please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by professionals with the expertise necessary to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information on ConsoleMods.org; much of the time you will. However, ConsoleMods.org cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given information may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields. That being said, if you do notice any inaccuracies - help us out by correcting it!

No formal peer review

We are working on ways to select and highlight reliable versions of information articles. Our active community of editors uses tools such as the Special:RecentChanges and Special:NewPages feeds to monitor new and changing content. However, ConsoleMods.org is not uniformly peer reviewed; while readers may correct errors or engage in casual review, they have no legal duty to do so and thus all information read here is without any implied warranty of fitness for any purpose or use whatsoever. Even articles that have been vetted by informal review may later have been edited and a mistake added accidentally, just before you view them.

None of the authors, contributors, sponsors, administrators, sysops, or anyone else connected with ConsoleMods.org in any way whatsoever can be responsible for the appearance of any inaccurate or libelous information or for your use of the information contained in or linked from these web pages.
