|General Posting Rules|
|Please read description of forum & scope of topics covered for each forum (found on the upper section of each forum) before posting to minimize misplacement of postings in the wrong forum.
While debating and discussion are cool, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Every member deserves to be respected.
Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
Advertising, spamming and trolling are not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, private message, blog, & picture comments systems to spam other members. You also cannot post ads or notices for contests.
Do not post messages written in all upper-case. That is equivalent to shouting in netiquette.
Avoid posting duplicate topics. Before posting anything, search the forums to check for similar threads or topics in which you can append your post.
Post your topics in the most appropriate forum.
Create a concise thread title that adequately summarizes your topic. Use descriptive words to describe contents of message.
If you're posting copied materials, please credit the author with a proper attribution.
Avoid excessively large images on your signatures.
When quoting, please quote relevant information ONLY.
We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual (unless they are posted in the 2 adult sites we have), racial & hateful in nature or violate community standards. This forum is family-oriented.
Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed, unless you are an administrator or moderator.
Refrain from blatant bashing of other boards or forums, Yahoo/MSN/Google Groups.
We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
Posts discussing moderator or administrator actions are also not allowed. Do it privately if you have an issue with them.
Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules, as access to our forums are a privilege and not a right.
Note that besides these overall rules, each forum may have additional, specific set of rules and guidelines. Take the time to read them.
