Forum rules:


Posting

Try to use the right forum for your topic, if you aren't sure go with your best feeling, if it turns out to be wrong a moderator can move it for you.

Please use a relevant title when you open a topic.

Avoid double-posting when possible. You have the ability edit your own post if there have been no other posts since you made yours on the thread.

Please keep discussions on topic. If you have something to say, which is not related with the discussion, just open a new topic. If you want to be random, there is the Lobby and associated threads therein.

Please use a descriptive subject title when posting new threads. "Help!" is not a descriptive title. ;)

Do not link or post any illegal stuff.

Do not post pornographic or any disruptive, unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable content.

Do not title topics with caps (upper-case) only letters, the same goes for message contents. CAPS is reserved for shouting on the internet, so please use it sparingly.

If you want to incorporate links with your posts on every post you make, please do not use the post body for your signature, use the signature setting from within your profile.

No-spam policy

Blatant spamming will arrange you a direct meeting with the ban hammer and having your posts removed. This rule is generally aimed at those who register just to spam their products.

Signatures

User Signatures are useful for letting readers know a little about yourself. Use of signatures is completely voluntary, however if you decide to use yours, you must follow these simple rules.

Images

Please do not use images in your signature that are disruptive to the forum layout. We would prefer it if you refrained from using signature images as they tie up page loading times for visitors on slow connections. However, in the case that you want to use an image; please mind the following limitations:

Your signature image size is limited to 400 pixels in width by 120 pixels in height. We are slightly flexible with this rule, for example a 410x130px image is acceptable. The moderators will help you determine if your image size is appropriate.

You may use more than one image, but regardless of the number of images, their combined total dimensions (and file size) must not exceed the maximum allowable image size.

File size must be kept below 80kb to help reduce bandwidth usage and alleviate the slow page loads for our dial-up readers. Using a proper file type can usually ensure a small file size, but many animated .gif files have very large file sizes.

Signature Links

Signatures may contain a maximum of 2 external links. Signature spamming (loading your signature with links) falls foul of the no-spam policy.

Bans

If the unfortunate situation arises that you are temporarily banned from the forums, do not attempt to evade the ban. Doing so will only make matters worse in the long run. Wait for your ban to expire, this is the cooling-off period.
