Forum Rules

1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.
Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers

Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.

2. Do not post copyright-infringing material
Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.

3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.
This is a web site for Intellectual discussions.

4. Do not cross post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.

5. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.

6. Remain respectful of other members at all times
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.

However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.

General Posting Guidelines

1. Be descriptive in what subject your topic is about
When posting the topic of interest you wish to discuss about, it must be in readable format. Do not post topics that are vague or simply confusing to ongoing readers. Posts like these will be deleted.

2. Providing sources
When quoting material from another site, you must ALWAYS credit it with a link to the source as not doing so would be considered plagiarism.

The acceptable amount of material to quote should only be enough to prove a point or provide information to others. 10%, 25%, or 50% is the amount sufficient for discussions. Please refrain from copying entire articles, pages, and large pieces of text to avoid copyright infringements

The clearest and most effective way to do this is to provide a short quote and then a link underneath to the page the quote is from, this way you are providing the specific information while giving others the chance to visit that source and read it up in full for themselves.
