Thumbs up Forum Rules and Guidelines

Post by Matti on Mon Sep 26, 2011 12:37 pm

Welcome to the Forum Design, please enjoy your stay and follow some basic rules.



Respect.
Everybody wants to be respected. You don't need to like everyone and you don't need to agree with everyone, but you do need to respect everyone, or at least show respect. As such, disrespectful and inflammatory comments are not allowed to be posted.

Help others if you can.
If you see posts from others where you can help out, please do so. This place exists because people are helping each other, and even if you are relatively new to the matter, there's probably already quite a few people newer than you that would benefit from what you've learned. Don't be shy.

Multiple accounts.
Members having multiple accounts makes things very complicated in various manners. For example, when you search for a user's posts, you want all his/her posts at once, rather than going to various profiles. Having multiple accounts is being dishonest towards the rest of the community. And most importantly, it makes it very difficult for us to track what you're doing on the site. Having multiple accounts is obviously a great way to dodge warnings and even bans. Therefore, you can have only one account, no more.

If someone using the same IP address as you wants to join, or if you made a new account because you couldn't get into your old account for one reason or another, make sure to contact a staff member!

Post in the correct forum.
Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other topics and see where your topic should go. If your topic is placed in the wrong forum, it will be moved by a moderator.

Do not double post.
Please make proper use of the "Edit" Button. If you feel you must post in a topic in which you were the last poster, please let it pass 24 hours since your least posts to avoid "true" double posting.

Do not spam.
Please do not spam the boards. Spam is not tolerated here includes linking to other websites for personal staff. Users posting spam will be banned and their post removed.

PM System.
If you receive an abusive/spam PM, forward it to any staff member for further action.
The PM system should not be used as a means of advertising, in any form.

Don't get us in trouble.
Don't post Pornographic materials or do other things that will obviously lead to legal trouble. If you wouldn't do it on your own homepage, you probably don't want to do it here either. This does not mean we agree with everything the software piracy lobby try to impose on us, it simply means you cannot break any laws here, since we'll end up dealing with legal hassle caused by you. Please use common sense: respect the forum.

Don't post any copyrighted stuff.
If you'd like to discuss some article from another website please don't copy and paste that article here, link to the website instead.

Who's in charge?
As a staff who shows respect towards the members, we ask that you also show respect to us and the decisions we make. As such, the staff has the final say and is responsible for interpreting and enforcing these rules. However, if you do have a complaint for a good reason, contact the staff member in question via private message. Don't do this publicly!

The forum Administrators and Staff members reserve the right to edit/delete posts and/or warn any member that does not respect the forum rules.



Thanks for reading and enjoy your time here Very Happy
