1. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be given a warning (see policing below).
2. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
3. Members are asked to not act as 'back seat moderators'. If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Only do this if a moderator team member has not replied within 24 hours. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who consistently 'act' as moderators may be warned.
4. Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. WILL NOT be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
5. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed.
6. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([IMG][/IMG]) image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.
7. Members should post in a way which is consistent with 'normal writing'. That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or colored text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.
8. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; 'Help me!', 'I'm stuck!', 'I've got an error!', etc. Examples of good titles include; 'Getting an TABLE FULL error upon login', 'Cannot restore a backup', etc.
9. Members are welcome to use the test forum for general 'test purposes'. These may include checking signatures, testing a link or image, etc. (subject to previous points on decency, warez, etc.). Users posting in the test forum just to increase their post counts will be warned.
10. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering hosting services (charged and free), installation services, etc. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. See specific item on spam and 3rd party linking for more information.
11. The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users.
12. The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.
This is 1 of the Main Issues in todays Online Communities. DJ's Forum will NOT allow any Adult Content, no matter if it is in WORD, PICTURE or SOUND in any WAY. Members that Post any ADULT and/or PORN related Content will be thrown into the DJ's Forum Jail, which will prohibit that MEMBER to Post for a Set Amount of DAYS. Should the same Member be caught again he/she will be jailed for 2 Weeks and loose access to the Forums. Should this happen again this Member will be permanently Banned as well as the IP Address blocked. IP Addresses are always logged by the System, so it will not work to just try to sign up under a new Username if BANNED.
Pornographic Material or Speech
DJ's Forum does not allow for any Members to Post Pornographic Material in Word or Picture in any Way. NO EXCEPTIONS!! Members that are doing so will be permanently Banned along with their IP being blocked.
Please do not spam our forums. Our Moderators are able to ban users that are spamming to much! A Forum is not a Chatroom, so talking within the Forums as if it was Chat will result in Spam Warnings. DJ's Forum has the right to edit and delete threads if necessary. Keep your title onto the topic of your thread so people could know what they're going to read.
Infractions that Warrant Warning Medal
1. Bumping your own posts with no replies in between .. If you have something to add and no one has replied -- edit your post and add whatever it is. (Admin and Mod's exempt) 2. Attacking another forum member by name just because you have a different opinion. 3. One word or repetitive useless posts (example being emoticons only or copying the post above you and repeating what has already been said by another member).
Please do not bash with other members if you're in a bad mood. Do not post anything that could insult or affect another member by all means. Do not post any personal information as well. Swearing should be kept to a minimum. Swear words should be replaced with other symbols. Swearing, flaming, or bashing on the forums will lead to you and your IP address being banned from the forums.
Chain posting on the forums would not be tolerated. Chain posting is where you post after a post you already did before 24 hours without anybody replying in between. We will delete any chain posts that we find. Any important posts would be deleted if its found as a chain post.
Post your threads where they should belong. This helps keep the forum organized. DJ's Forum has the right to move any thread to their desired position.
Spamming for TOKIES
