General Conduct

Before making a topic make sure you are posting in the correct forum. It should be pretty clear where to post since each forum has a description.

Give your topic a good title! This is often overlooked, and "WTF?" gives no clue as to what your topic will be about.

Before posting a topic, please ask yourself the following question: "Am I making a post which is either funny, informative, or interesting on some level?" If you can answer "yes" to this, then please post. If you cannot, then refrain.

Before replying, please ask yourself: "Does my reply offer any significant advice or help contribute to the conversation in any fashion?" (As a side note, posting "Use the search bar" is never helpful. First, if you have used the search bar and have found something relevant, just post the relevant link instead. Next, how can you presume that the person posting comments hasn't already tried the search bar and didn't find what they're looking for?)

Some simple guidelines:
• Try to use proper punctuation and grammar, or understandable language which majority of forum members could understand.
• Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse not to follow them.
• Lurk first, post second. Read the entirety of every thread you post in before you post.
• If you're about to make a post that you're not sure is OK, whether covered by the rules or not, don't.
• If you can't make a positive contribution to a topic, don't post.
• If you're not here to have fun, go elsewhere.
• We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
• Read, re-read, and respect these rules.

Help us help you! Each post can be reported by using the "Report and abuse" function at bottom right corner. This will automatically alert the forum admins and moderators to investigate. If you feel someone is abusing the above rules or offended you, report them and we will take action. Although the administrators and moderators will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and we are not held responsible for the content of any message.

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. By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

You also agree to our Terms of Service.
