Rules and Guidelines

About the Forum Rules

These rules are intended to promote friendly and polite usage of our forum but moderators are free to act against anybody who acts against the spirit of these rules. So any troll playing the rule quoting game to get out of being punished, will be punished anyway if they have acted against the spirit of these rules.

The Forum Rules

1. Playing the Points Game

Some users may believe they can be rude to some folk because they only moderated once, then wait for that to expire and do it again. If we believe a user is doing that they will be banned on the spot. Moderator decisions are designed to encourage good behavior, not lay the ground work for bad behavior.

Punishment = Banned from the site.

We expect you to be friendly and polite towards other users at all times.

3. NO Ranting or Venting.

A rant or venting is a post which is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and helpful in the community, but rants are disruptive and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise, clear manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents. We know this is hard but we insist all users make the attempt.
