1 - No inappropriate content:
This is a forum used by both people at work and minors and so it is important that strict boundaries are set for what can and can't be posted here.

Inappropriate content is any content which we deem is not fit to be displayed on this website. By content we mean anything that you publish on this website, for example posts, signatures, in photos or in private messages.

Inappropriate content includes but is not limited to that which is:

- Vulgar or graphic
- Of pornographic nature
- Offensive to any specific group of people
- Offensive to a general audience
- Hateful
- Sexually oriented
- Threatening
- Invasive of a person’s privacy

Examples of any of the above will result in your post being removed and a warning recorded against your account.

2 - No personal attacks or abusive behavior
Each and every member on this forum has a right to be treated with dignity and respect, any actions which contravene this will result in severe consequences.

The following behavior is not acceptable:

- Personal attacks: Any insulting or abusive behavior that is directed at a specific person.
- Bullying (flaming): Repeated abuse towards another member, this could be undertaken by one member or a number of members.
- Instigating (trolling): Repeatedly provoking a member with the goal of getting an irrational response from them.

3 - No spamming, irrelevant advertising or illegal downloads
Spam: Pointless posts with little relevance to the topic
Irrelevant advertising: promotion of products or services that are not related to the topic
Illegal downloads: Links to illegal downloads of copyrighted material
Posts which constitute either of these will be removed on sight.

4 - Profile restrictions
Remember that your profile elements are subject to all the above content restrictions.
Any profile elements which break these rules will be removed immediately.

5 - Miscellaneous
- No duplicate accounts: Duplicate accounts will be banned and you risk your main account being banned too.
- Respect the staff and their decisions: We are here to do a job which we do to the best of our ability. Any threads or posts questioning the decisions of staff will be removed on sight; if you have a problem with the actions of a staff member then discussing it with them via private message is the correct way to deal with it.
- New threads cannot only consist of a text or a video that has been copied and pasted from another source. Thread creators must compose at least a few sentences where, in their own words, they explain the context of their quote or video along with a brief explanation of its relevancy. Offending posts will be locked.

Quotes should be clearly identified as quotes by placing them between quote tags

[quote] Like this. [/quote]

Note that we do not grant requests to delete user's entire post history because this might destroy entire threads where other users have contributed and render other threads useless. Please make sure that you're 100% comfortable with everything you're posting on the forums.

If you come across any posts which break these rules please do not hesitate to bring them to our attention by reporting them.
