-Welcome to our website
Our website offers various addons to help improve your experiences while using our website and forums. Please take some time to get familiar with the features and these rules. Thanks a lot and have fun!
-Search & Forum FAQ
Before posting, please SEARCH the Forums and take a look at our Forum FAQ page if you are experience problems with the forums. While doing a search, try to be as specific as possible in your searches.
-Avoid the following topic titles
When posting, please avoid to give your topic a title such as:
*DID YOU SEE THAT
* HEY MIKE/TERRY ____
* POSTER ID/POSTER NAME ________
* WHY DID **POSTER** GET BANNED
or ANYTHING like the above!
Please try to be as specific as possible in choosing a title for your post. This not only helps us to get an idea of the content, it also helps to find a topic faster which should result in quicker replies.
-Posting about banned posters
Posts questioning why posters have been banned are subject to infraction and/or banning. There is a purgatory forum for banned posters to appeal their bannings. Outside intervention is not needed and will not be tolerated.
-Post your topic in the respective forum
Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. This not only will help us to find and answer your problems faster, it also helps to have an organized forum on our website and thus will help everyone to find what they are looking for.
-Use similar existing topics if possible
Please try to only start new topics as necessary. If a similar topic exists, please post in it. It will move that topic to the top of the list and your post will be seen. It also is a good idea since there may be a few users subscribed to that posts notification.
-Multiple & duplicated Topics / Posts
Posting the same message to multiple boards and / or topics is not allowed. Multiple & duplicated posts will be deleted. Spamming of the boards will not be tolerated.
- Multiple User IDs/Alias
Multiple IDs (ie Alias) and/or multiple accounts using the same computer are not allowed unless positive identiy of each ID can be substantiated. Multiple/Duplicate IDs are subject to investigation and if necessary banning.
-Flames, Attacks & Off Topic Comments
No flames, personal attacks or contentious off topic comments: The idea is to make this a pleasant environment for everyone. Flaming and offensive language towards fellow posters must stop. Material that contains vulgar, obscene or indecent language or images including excessive swearing, Any communication that is intended to harass, belittle, humiliate, threaten or cause embarrassment to a fellow member, Material that defames, abuses or threatens others, Statements that are bigoted, hateful or racially offensive will not be tolerated and result in immediate action by the site moderators. Everyone has thier own opinions on every thing and they are just that (opinions) to call them an idiot or moron etc. only makes a bad situation worse.
Allow for the possibility of misunderstandings, and be patient if someone asks for an explanation of what seems to be obvious.
-Censorship & violate these rules
Debate about everything, even when heated, is encouraged. This is not about censorship. However, while we do not and cannot police every post, we will delete posts coming to our attention that we believe violate these rules. Appropriate actions will also be taken against the poster.
-No Nudity…. Pics are fine, even encouraged, but Nudity is not allowed on this site. We're trying to keep this site a work-safe environment. If you must post some Not-Work-Safe Material you MUST use a link and mark it the link with appropriate warnings for the other users of this site.
-Avatars : We allow users to post their own avatars. Avatars MUST be safely within the bounds of safe for work.
- Spamming Via Private Message System
Sending advertisement throughout the Private Message System, is not allowed. We do monitor the Private Message too see if this rule is followed. If we catch anybody sending advertisements to our members, or if it gets reported, your IP gets banned without further notice, and forever. NO WARNING WILL BE GIVEN.
