All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed for futher investigation. Don't create posts with nothing but a link. If you are going to link to a news article for example, give a summary of it. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests, including the promotion of a personal website or any site one is affiliated with, fits under this subject.
While you are allowed to promote your web site(s) in your signature, you are not permitted to post links to sites you run or are in any way affiliated with in your posts. In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.
Our community is family-friendly. There are young users and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will be removed and users will be warned.
Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.
No links to adult content please.
Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to relevant discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. Users must demonstrate an interest in contributing to relevant discussions, as this is a community site after all. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, personal attacks against people will not be tolerated. Offensive language is not permitted. If you have an issue with someone or their products or services, take it up with them personally. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards.The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.
Start new threads in the most relevant forum category. If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
Signatures may contain no more than 3 lines. A typical signature contains the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favorite quote or saying. Excessive font size are not allowed. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.
If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.
Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact us. Above all, remember to have fun and enjoy our forums.
