Rules for users

Post by Lecter on Tue Mar 25, 2008 3:40 pm

Users that won't follow the rules will be banned for 1 week after the 1st offence and for ever after the 3rd offence... So it is important to follow the updates...

  • Before you post : A search should be done to see if your questions have not been already posted. You have a FAQ section where you can find answers for general questions about board management
    Arrow Frequently Asked Questions

    Topic titles : When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to your problem/question. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry" are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided.

    Description of you problem/question : When you ask a question, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe your problem. The more info you give, the better we can answer you.

    Language on this forum : When you write in English, SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided. Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write, so put a minimum of care in your English, even if your English is not very good (eh, Godfather...lol? Wink )

    Colors and capitals : When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it means that you shout) or colors.
    Some colors are reserved for moderation and light colors are hard to read for visually impaired people.

    Flood and off-topic : Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single smiley must be avoided.
    You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response.
    As long as you topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to up it. The minimun delay between two Ups is 24 hours, according to this board's default timezone (GMT - 5).
    If you make a mistake, please use the button at the top-right of your post, to avoid double-posting

    Advertising : It is forbidden to post advertising for money-related stuff, many of our members are under 18.

    Defamatory, racist, hateful, pornographic, illegal or insulting content must be avoided on this forum. You must respect the fact that people may have a different opinion than you. If you are in conflict with another member, please use PMs for that, this board is not an arena!

    - Please, be patient. It's useless to up your topic every 2 minutes (see the point "Flood and Off-topic"). Every member of this forum has a private life besides Wp | Help, so they can't always respond immediately.

    - You must respect the moderators and administrators. They all work volontarily on this forum and they are human, not machines!

    - If you received advertising, pornographic content or insults by PM, you must send the whole copy (including the headers) to a moderator by PM. Posting it in a topic is useless and will only cause conflicts between you and the one who sent you the PM.

    - If you found an user that doesn't respect the charter (can be seen when you create a board), PM a moderator instead of creating a topic. That will avoid undeliberate advertising.

    If you don't find your topic, it may have been moved to a more appropriate place Arrow How to find your own messages
    If you have a question, PM a moderator for that!

    - Avatar dimensions : Your avatar's width must not exceed 150 pixels and its height must not exceed 200 pxels. These limits are here to avoid scrolling for people who have a low screen resolution. You must also respect the limit of weight which is fixed to 300 KB. There are still people who have a low-speed connection, and heavy pictures take time to load for them.

    - Your avatar is not an advertising banner, so avatars with your forum URL must be avoided.

    - Sexually oriented and gore avatars must be avoided

    - Your "Age/S" field is not an advertising space, so forum URL must be avoided

    - If you made advertising by PM, you may see your PM mailbox disabled for a determined period

    - If your avatar doesn't respect the rules and you ignore the moderator's request to have it changed, the Administrator may forbid you from displaying an Avatar.

    - Advertising for money-related stuff = Immediate ban

    - Ignoring the moderators' warnings and continuing to not respect the rules, insulting people and trolling may result to a simple ban from this forum.

    If you post a tutorial that will change settings in users system - Os (XP, VISTA or others) you should post a warning like this at the top of the tut:
    We do not take any responsibility on how you're system can react !

    If you have any question about one of the forum rules, please PM a moderator to ask your question.

    Thanks for your comprehension.
