Rules, as much as we hate them..
We have been discussing an official set of rules for the forum, moderation methods etc..
This is an attempt at opening the door to all forum members to put in their 2 cents ( can't say it will all be used, but we welcome all ideas none the less ! )
To get the ball rolling, here are a few items:
- Before you start a thread, please do a " SEARCH " at the very top of the forum. There is a massive archive of information on here and most topics have been covered in detail, sometimes your questions are not covered specifically and starting your thread is perfectly ok, but please search prior to posting when ever possible.
- No Double Posting, yes, i know, sometimes we need and answer NOW>>>> or you have something exciting to share, but posting the same thing in multiple forum areas gets messy and spreads the information all over the place.. if you post something in the wrong section, PM a moderator and ask to have it moved, it's very easy to do and we don't mind at all.
- Like mother always said, if you can't say something nice !!.. This is a tough one, often we feel very passionate about something and speak our minds, we are all guility of this at some time or other, try to keep it positivive and respectull of other forum readers.. This has been given alot of slack in the past but will be getting enforced from now on.
There is a " Warn User " function that we will be testing out, ( see the red " ! " on the borrom of every post ) it allows members to flag posts they find offensive, moderators can warn a user and keep a log of someone's offending behavior, also allows users to report us Mods should you feel we are out of line. It's confidential, use it as you see fit. The usual 3 strikes and you'rrr out may apply here.
As everyone contributes we can edit this post as required until something reasonable comes about..
So.. have at it !
