Forum Etiquette and Common Sense - webnetics - 27-03-11

Common rules

1. Only one account per person is permitted.
2. Do not pretend to be/represent somebody else. Your account will be deleted if found to be in breach of this rule.
3. When registering, a valid email address has to be used. Disposable email addresses are not permitted. If found, we will remove the account in question.
4. Keep all posts on-topic.
5. All posts must be in English, unless posted in a specific international forum. If posting in a international forum, please use the language of that forum, and not English.
6. DO NOT SEND SUPPORT REQUESTS VIA PM, unless expressly invited to do so. Using PM to actively solicit work is not allowed. Post, in accord with the rules in the correct forum. Abuse of the PM system in this way can lead to your membership being removed.
7. Do not discuss illegal activities.
8. No useless posts. This includes: Thread bumping, useless one liners, repeated requests about new versions, Flamewars, Trolling and Spamming.
9. Do not propose/link to any site that contains warez/copyrighted software/materials that can be downloaded illegally.
10. Do not link to any site that contains adult content, sexually oriented material or might otherwise be considered offensive. Any post containing an inappropriate link will be deleted and the poster will receive a warning.

At all times

1. Keep all commentary civil, and be courteous at all times. Constructive criticism is welcome, but insults directed towards other users or the site admins will not be tolerated. Coarse/insulting language will not be tolerated.
2. Choose an appropriate subject line. Try to summarise the problem briefly in the subject, and elaborate in the message itself. A title like "Have you seen this..." or "Help needed!!!!" will be deleted.
3. Spend 10 minutes with the admin panel before posting common sense questions like "How do I see orders", or "How do I add products". If you go through each admin menu you will find all you need to know about the basic features.
4. Search before posting. You may need to search multiple variation of the terms.
5. Any posts deemed to be self promotion, advertising, or spam can and will be removed. NO SPAM - NO ADVERTISING eg. Posting and making excessive, inappropriate and unnecessary references to your products and websites is self promotion.
6. Don't lump sum mods and inquiries in one post. People asking for help and at the same time attaching a contribution should be avoided. Contributions go in the contrib thread. Help goes in one of the support threads, based on the affected element (modules, templates, languages, general, etc).
7. Bugs go into the bug area ONLY after you have searched the bug forum and found nothing similar.
8. Hijacking threads because you feel the need to whine or complain about your personal opinions that have nothing to do with the main topic of the thread will be instantly deleted at will!
9. If you feel a post violates any of these rules, or you need to bring it to the attention of a moderator (move threads/close/split), please use the ‘report this post’ link to notify the moderators.
