Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead them being banned.
Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something in these or site rules they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of a Moderator Team.
Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to the user being banned.
Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will be banned.
Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([IMG][/IMG]) image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to will be removed.
Members should post in a way which is consistent with “normal writing”. That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be banned.
Members should use an appropriate, descriptive subject when posting a new topic. Members are welcome to use the test forum for general “test purposes”. These may include checking signatures, testing a link or image, etc. (subject to previous points on decency, warez, etc.). #
Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering hosting services (charged and free), installation services, solicitation etc. Recruiting members for your own projects (moderators, designers, professional MOD work, etc.) is not permitted and is also considered spam. Users posting spam will be banned.
The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time. Please note that currently any very first post is automatically placed in the moderation queue and will be approved/disapproved according to the present Rules. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Moderators and not users.
The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to users being banned (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.
You may not link to warez, porn, racist or other similar hate sites.
