Forum Guidelines & Rules

Post by VOTHG.WebDir » Wed Dec 04, 2019 2:34 pm

Guidelines (Please do's):
1. Keep an eye open for new, interesting topics. Before starting a new topic, please check if there is already a topic open on the subject. If so, contribute to it there.

2. Ignore bothersome members. If there is someone on the forum that bothers you, ignore them.

3. Use good judgement. Remember that contributions to forums often are personal opinions that should not always be considered carefully.

4. Don't be afraid to share or ask questions.

5. Welcome new members. When newcomers arrive, say "hi" and welcome them. Help new folks "learn the ropes" about how to find information and resources, save time, and how to get involved. You will also find a lot of help using the forums themselves.

6. Use descriptive titles for new posts. Avoid "generic" post subjects like "Help" or "Question". You will receive a better response to your posts by being more descriptive about the content of your post.

Rules (Please don't):
1. No use of explicit, obscene or vulgar language or images and/or messages, including racist remarks.

2. No posts that attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse members or non-members. Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member. Agree to disagree.

3. No advertising or links to advertising or "Spam" is permitted.

4. No use of multiple usernames. Please register and use only one username for the forums. Posting under multiple user accounts will result in administrative action (ie. banning).

5. No posts of copyrighted material. Information copyrighted or owned by any individual or entity other than the person posting should not be posted on the message boards without the consent of the owner.

6. Do not post offline personal contact information (ie. your home address, phone numbers etc.) and do not ask for personal information from others. This is to protect your security and identity.

Please Remember:
Users that do not abide by the rules may be subject to having their posts edited or deleted, their member account permanently banned from further access and/or deleted without notice.

Rules and guidelines may change at any time, please re-read them regularly.

Thank you for reading to the end!
