The following rules and guidelines on forum decency or "netiquette" are all mostly common sense, but we know some members lack any common sense so we've listed them here for you to review and hopefully abide by:
All posts should be made in legible English. Do not make posts or topics in foreign languages, they are likely to be closed. We will be lenient on this rule from time to time as long as it doesn't become a habit amongst members.
Before you start a topic, perform a search to see if the question or topic you wish to create has been made before.
Please make the topic title you are creating descriptive, clearly reflecting the topic you are addressing. Do not make generic titles such as "Question", "I need help", or in full capitals, with an obscene amount of periods, exclamation marks, question marks, etc. These topics will probably go unnoticed, whereas a topic with a descriptive title will gain more interest.
Stay on topic; posts that do not may be removed. If you wish to discuss a different subject take it to the proper thread.
When replying to a topic, don't; unless you have something meaningful to say or something that will contribute to the discussion.
If you have an issue with a member or moderation decision contact the member in question or a staff member via PM. DO NOT air your grievances publicly in the original topic or otherwise.
Do not post someone's personal information without the proper consent. This includes personal photos, names, addresses, phone numbers, E-mail, instant messenger handles, conversation logs, etc. If the person requests that you remove the subject matter you must comply or else the staff members will intervene.
Absolutely no posting of pornographic content of any kind, linked to or otherwise.
Show some restraint on the amount of images you post.
If one of your posts is removed don't repost it without staff permission, this is considered disrespectful and may result in a warning increase.
Don't make secondary accounts, duplicate accounts will be banned.
Avoid bumping (reviving) old or new topics; they'll be replied to when they're replied to.
Use the report function! If you see someone breaking a rule, report it. Don't reply to a post you've just reported and don't write an essay for the report reason but DO make it clear why it should be removed.
