Code of Conduct

1. Maintain Good and Proper Fellowship

Matthew 7:12
In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Debate is welcome and encouraged. Stick to the issue and don’t make it personal. Personal attacks, name calling, racial slurs, religious slurs, profanity, flaming and/or bashing posts, pornography, sexist remarks, childish behavior, and any other generally bad activity will not be tolerated.

Keep in mind that in life there is no guarantee that others will agree with your thoughts or comments. You must handle criticism, opposing views, and disagreements with tact and maturity.

Act in a respectful manner.

2. Keep it Clean – this site is family friendly

Posting anything with foul or vulgar language or anything lewd or otherwise inappropriate will not be tolerated. Do not change the spelling of a word, the letters within any words, or otherwise attempt to do something that in any way represents foul or vulgar language. Do not post links that violate our Code of Conduct.

3. Keep it Legal / Do Not Discuss Illegal Activities

Illegal activities and ways to circumvent laws and regulations will not be discussed here.
Do not use this site for any illegal activities.
Do not link to external sites that violate our Code of Conduct
Do not upload files or post messages that contain photos, music, software or other material protected by laws, rights of privacy or publicity or any other applicable law.
Do not post any materials, including software and other information, that could harm, or is designed to harm other user’s computers or would allow others to inappropriately access software or web sites.
We are not responsible for anything you say or post.

4. No Spam / No Unauthorized soliciting / No Commercial Advertising

Advertising is not allowed without approval. This means that unless you have received authorization from the staff to post an advertisement for goods or services, you may not advertise in this forum.

Authorized vendors are exempt from these restrictions

Manufacturers or their dealers are welcome and encouraged to post information in the discussion forums as it relates to technical specifications, new product releases (models, colors, options, etc.), prototypes, user feedback, or additional features in existing or expanding products lines.

Members interested in selling, trading, or giving away anything should use the Trading Post forums.

Use of the forum to advertise, promote or recruit for other web communities will be considered to be spamming the forum and will not be tolerated. Mentioning or linking to another forum when there is a legitimate need, other than advertisement, in context of a post is permitted. Blatant or repetitious plugging of another forum for advertisement is not permitted.

5. English is the official language of this site

We are happy to have people from all over the world as part of this site, but please keep all posts and communications in English. Study of another language is permissible when it fits the subject in discussion. Communications or posts in other languages will not be tolerated.

7. Your membership can be revoked at any time without any prior notice or warning

8. You are allowed only one account on this forum

9. No Account Sharing

You are not allowed to use another users profile and you may not allow another user to use your profile. Everyone here needs their own account. Account sharing will not be tolerated.
