General Forum Rules

1.Do not spam or self-promote in the forums

These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites or posts with little, no or completely unrelated content.

Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc. Doing so is a waste of time.

Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.

Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

2.Do not post "Free" threads

Posting pyramid scams (such as free iPods, LCDs etc.) is forbidden. All such posts/signatures will be edited or deleted. Any new users posting scams will be banned permanently; contributing users will either be warned or temporarily banned.

3.Do not cross post questions

Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.

If you're not sure where to post, ask a moderator first.

4.Do not post copyright-infringing material

Do not post any copyrighted material which you are not free to redistribute (subject to the licensing terms of the specific item). If you have a question about having permission to post or attach a specific item, please ask a moderator.

We do not condone nor accept posts pertaining to illegal activities such as hacking, cracking, warez, or spam.

Any posts or threads found in violation of this rule will be edited or deleted, and the poster warned or possibly banned; at the moderation team's discretion.

5.Do not post "offensive" posts, or links

Do not post anything which is offensive, hateful, racist, sexist, discriminatory, obscene, vulgar or in violation of local or international laws.

6.Do not PM users asking for help

Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum. If you're that desperate, then it's time to pay for help.

7.Remain respectful of other users, moderators and administrators at all times

All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.

However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule. Doing otherwise will get your account banned temporarily, or permanently if the situation becomes severe enough (this will be left to the discretion of the moderation team).

For example, phrases such as "shut up, idiot," are indicative of problematic posts and should be reported. Suggested alternatives include "I disagree with what you said for the following reasons..." Please remember to stay mature and thoughtful at all times.

General Forum Questions
1.Am I allowed more than one account?

No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. By creating a new account, you are making the banning/warning system pointless. Your new accounts will be permanently banned.

If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address may well be blocked from the forums. If you then start to register using different IP addresses, we reserve the right to take legal action against you. Using proxy servers will not get you anywhere.

2.What happens if I break a rule?

If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close and thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.

3.What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?

Please report the thread/post to us by using the "contact us" form. This report will be sent to all moderators of that particular forum, who will respond to the incident as quickly as possible.
