Ignorance of the guidelines as posted in this forum and as outlined in the terms of service agreement will NOT be accepted as an excuse for breaking the rules.

Any violation may be cause for one's posting rights being removed without debate.

Member Guidelines

1 - Please review all the settings in the member Control Panel. Pay particular attention to the Time Zone setting and the Daylight Time checkbox.

2 - Do not post in CAPS. This is an indication of shouting.

3 - Start new topics in the correct forum.

4 - Stay on topic

5 - Read this forum for announcements.

6 - Keep your email address up-to-date. It must be active and working at all times.

6.1 - Temporary email addresses are not allowed.

7 - Passwords are case-sensitive.

8 - Quoting should not constitute more than 10% of a post.

9 - Keeping your password confidential is the responsibility of the account owner. Do not store the password on a shared computer. Hence 'someone else used my computer' is not an acceptable excuse to the moderators (for violating any of the rules or guidelines).

10 - Use of foreign proxies is not acceptable.

Editing by Moderators

We have set one general rule that everyone must respect fellow members. That does not preclude disagreement. However, personal animosity does not fit in under respect. Please use email or the messenger facility of the board to discuss personal matters that are strictly between you and another member.

To this end, the moderators will edit posts sometimes without any advance notification.

Kindly refrain from any name-calling or referring to one's name or alias in any derogatory fashion. In addition, any post which contains any reference, explicit or implicit, or any reference via innuendo that suggests guilt as judged by the moderators will have the post removed. Posting rights will also be suspended for a minimum of 14 days without appeal.

Differing opinions are invited and encouraged; however any reference to anyone's name or alias with demeaning adjectives etc will not be tolerated.

Please ensure your posts do not contain any personal references other than name or alias.

Account Cancellation Policy (Removal of Account)

We know that people will have to leave our community (of their own free will or otherwise) from time to time and to that end, we do not delete accounts, posts, or other content posted on our community. All content is granted to us with perpetual electronic publishing rights because any content posted on this community becomes a part of the community, even if you no longer are. You may request an item to be removed at any time, but we will decide when and if to remove content from our community. If you wish to no longer be identified with our community, we will be glad to close your account. After account closure, you will no longer be able to participate in this community and this action is not reversible. However, once your account has been moved to the Inactive group (as defined in our purging criteria topic in the NEWS forum), the account will be deleted at that time.
