Forum Rules

╠ Do's ╣

• Be Nice and Polite

Every member deserves to be treated with respect. Positive and polite posts create a friendly and welcoming environment that all members will feel comfortable in.

• Think Before Posting

Sensible, well thought-out and legible posts help other members understand what is being explained.

• Post in Relevant Section(s)

Posting in the most relevant section will ensure threads are seen by members most interested in the subject. Threads posted in the wrong section will generally be moved by moderators.

• Remain on Topic

Threads should remain on the topic that they are discussing, they should not be discussing other topics. A new thread should be made for a new discussion.

• Report Content

Reported content is sent to staff members for review. If a post needs staff attention because it breaks the rules, needs to be modified or moved the report system is the correct way to alert the staff.

╠ Don't ╣

• Use Profanity or Post Inappropriate Content

As a family friendly forum we require that all content posted on the forum is suitable for people of all ages, this includes words, videos and pictures. Any posts containing inappropriate content or profanity (including self-censored, automatically censored, acronyms and slang) will be removed from the forum.

• Flame or Provoke

Do not insult or flame other members of the forum. Similarly, do not post with the intention of provoking a reaction from fellow members. This includes encouraging flame wars. Instigation is not tolerated.

• Spam

A spam post is a post that provides no value to the discussion, or a thread that creates nuisance for others. The most common spam posts are posting, "+1", "this", posting image macros, and nothing but memes or images. Threads are considered spam when they are duplicates, or devoid of valuable content. Replying to spam is not permitted either.

• Bump Threads

Posting in a thread only to bring it back to the front page of the forum is not allowed, a thread should only be on the front page of a forum if there is active discussion taking place. The only exceptions to this rule are a small number of help sections, if the section permits bumping this will be noted in the section rules.

• Advertise

Do not use Tech-forum to generate traffic or attention for your endeavor, links to personal websites and projects are permitted on profiles and in signatures. Commercial activities are not permitted on Tech-forum. The only exceptions to this rule are donations to Tech-forum content creators, the Tech-forum Server Hosting section or Admin.

• Behave in a Malicious Manner

Do not behave in a manner that can cause distress, harm or inconvenience to other members, staff or the forum itself. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination, bullying, and offensive material, using multiple forum accounts, breaching others privacy and accessing others accounts without permission.
