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 Administrator and Moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.


- Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying, but treat others like you would like to be treated.

- 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.

- There will be no use of profanity.

- There will be no racial, ethnic, gender based insults or any other personal discriminations.

- There will be no public threads or posts airing grievances. If a post or thread is in breach of any of these Rules, you must use the 'Report to Moderator' tool in the offending thread.

- Users may not argue a Moderator decision publicly. Any and all complaints directed at a Moderator must first address the Moderator in question via PM. If the problem can not be resolved, then the Moderator and user must send their positions to the forum Admin. The forum Admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions.

- There will be no posts or private messages (pm's) meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory.

- Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible.

- In regards to supporting people, you can suggest that people read the Help Manual (sometimes referred to as RTFM) or 'Google it' providing you give that person a starting link to either.

- Avoid one word replies. These are not helpful.

- You must stay on topic in a given thread.

- Do not PM the Admin directly. You must utilize the Global or Local Moderating Staff here in the first instance (see Staff link above).

- There is to be no hijacking of other threads. If you have a problem that you need solved, please start your own thread unless it is exactly like the one being discussed.

- Pornography, Warez, illegal Torrent discussion, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form.

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

- Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.

- All posts are property of the poster. This forum and all web sites owned in conjunction with this forum have the right to request alteration or deletion of any offensive post. Posts may be deleted for any reasons the forum Administrators deem reasonable.

- Pictures may be posted as long as they are not explicit or offensive.

- Signatures:  Maximum allowed characters 900,  Maximum amount of lines 6,  Maximum font size allowed in signatures 12,  Maximum image count 6,  Maximum width of signature images (pixels) 500,  Maximum height of signature images (pixels) 100. Signatures should not contain antagonistic remarks or information, negative references to other members, nor should they contain links to porn or illegal software sites.

- 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.

- If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines then please contact a Moderator either via PM or the 'Report to Moderator' feature; please do not respond publicly to the member - a member of staff will do what is required upon contact. Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another forum) will be sent a PM warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions.

- Any impersonation of a user from these forums, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning.

- Only one account per person allowed. If you create another account to get around a PM block, you will be banned.

- Linked and locked topics are pruned regularly to reduce page clutter. If you have a question about where your topic went, please PM a Moderator or Administrator before starting a new topic asking where it went, or posting a duplicate of the original topic. We will be happy to provide you with a link to the new location, or a reason why it was locked and/or removed.

- You may have one username on the board at any one time. If you wish to change your name, you must make a request to the Admin via a PM. You are allowed one name change during your membership. We reserve the right to merge or delete multiple accounts.

These rules are subject to change, updating and additions from time to time.
