Rules and Guidelines

It’s impossible to list every Internet custom of good forum behavior. So I’m keeping it simple, and hoping for the best.

  1. Show respect for Staff. If you don’t like a staff decision, contact us privately about it.

  2. Treat members with courtesy. You can disagree, but no dismissive remarks. And no trolling (luring of people into purposely difficult conversations).

  3. No cussing, including cuss words that are partially blanked out. No sexual remarks of the kind that generally considered inappropriate.

  4. Post in the right forum. Don’t post the same thing in two forums here.

  5. Never give out personal details.

  6. Post in English with standard types of writing. In other words, no typing in all capitals or color fonts. No excessive use of symbols or abbreviations.

  7. No copyright violations or referrals to warez sites, etc. You can read more about copyrights here: 10 Big Myths about copyright explained

  8. You are allowed to post links to competing forums if it comes up as a legitimate topic. But you may not post excessive links to the same site, even if they are on topic. You can use your site name as your username, but you must drop the "www" ".com," ".org" etc. so it doesn't look spammy.

  9. No advertising on the forum, personal messages, or any other part of the site. Staff decides the difference between legitimate posts/memberships versus excuses to advertise.

  10. No hotlinking to files unless the site allows this.

  11. No animated avatars or other graphics.

  12. Do not create more than one account. If you want to change your username, please contact us.

  13. No political and religious discussions. No strong political and religious sentiments in profiles, signatures, and other content.

  14. Your posts become part of the forum content. If you decide to leave (for whatever reason) your posts remain.
These rules might change as needed. I hope they are easy to follow. If you have any questions, feel free to PM staff. Thanks for reading this!
