1 - No inappropriate content:
This is a forum used by both people at work and minors and so it is important that strict boundaries are set for what can and can't be posted here.
Inappropriate content is any content which we deem is not fit to be displayed on this website. By content we mean anything that you publish on this website, for example posts, signatures, in photos or in private messages.
Inappropriate content includes but is not limited to that which is:
- Vulgar or graphic
- Of pornographic nature
- Offensive to any specific group of people
- Offensive to a general audience
- Sexually oriented
- Invasive of a person’s privacy
Examples of any of the above will result in your post being removed and a warning may be issued to your account.
2 - Keep things legal
We ask that you don't bring illegal topics onto this forum. While it's acceptable for such topics to be included as an element to a discussion please set boundaries and keep a distance from discussions that might be incriminating.
Examples of what should not be brought into discussions here:
Specific methods or sources of piracy
Specific methods of committing a crime
Actions that imply illegal conduct
Any posts which contain the above will be removed without notice.
3 - No personal attacks or abusive behavior
Each and every member on this forum has a right to be treated with dignity and respect, any actions which contravene this will result in severe consequences.
The following behavior is not acceptable:
Personal attacks - Any insulting or abusive behavior that is directed at a specific person.
Bullying (flaming) - Repeated abuse towards another member, this could be undertaken by one member or a number of members.
Instigating (trolling) - Repeatedly provoking a member with the goal of getting an irrational response from them.
4 - No spamming or irrelevant advertising
Spam: Pointless posts with little relevance to the topic or numerous posts on the same issue on purpose
Irrelevant advertising: promotion of products or services that are not related to the topic
5 - Duplicate accounts
It is not deemed appropriate for members to hold more than one account, and creating a duplicate account to evade a ban is certainly unacceptable. Any member who is found to have done this will be permanently banned.
Posts which constitute either of these will be removed on sight. The word of the staff is final.
