Forum Rules - Forum Authority (As of October 2016)

Participation at Forum Authority constitutes agreement to the following guidelines, which apply to posts, profile information, avatars, signatures, any other content on this site and participation in general. This includes private messages, which we have the ability to read, but only do so when a violation is reported to us or we have a legitimate reason. Although rare, it does happen.
Because of the live nature of the discussions on this community, it is not possible for us to review and/or confirm the accuracy or validity of a message before it is posted. If you believe that someone has violated our forum rules or you have spotted content that may otherwise require attention, please use the report system so staff will be notified about the case. Notification is voluntary and anonymous, but in no case should a user respond to a situation personally, thereby aggravating the situation further. Responding to a violation in an inflammatory manner is a violation in itself and will result in appropriate action.
This is a for profit website that will attempt to generate revenue through avenues that we deem appropriate. Any content that violates our forum rules will be removed. Interpretation of our guidelines is at the discretion of the staff.

1. Post Illegal activity.

REGISTRATION OF USERS

1. By registration to the forum you accept the present Rules. 
2. To register to the forum a user must provide an active e-mail address. We guarantee privacy of the provided information. 
3. Choice of a username (a nickname) is your exclusive right. Your nickname must be non-offensive and has to be unique on this forum. The administration reserves the right to take measures for stopping a nickname usage, if its usage violates generally accepted moral and ethical standards and it is insulting for other forum users. Registration of nicknames, resembling the existing ones so that they can mislead other forum users, is prohibited. 
4. Repeated registration of one user, regardless of his/her aims, is prohibited. This violation is considered to be extremely serious and leads to the blocking of all accounts. You are allowed to have one (1) account. 
5. Use your common sense as always on the Internet: don't just post private information, nor put it in your profile. 
6. We reserve the right to remove accounts inactive for a long time (50 days or more), if no specified reason is given. 


RULES OF CONDUCT

1. Communication in the forum is based on the principles of generally accepted morality and netiquette. 
2. Always use common sense by being nice and responding to users how you want to be treated. 
3. Links or posts regarding sex and pornography, racism, violence, and discrimination are NOT allowed. 
4. Don't flame (that's using insulting or offensive language against fellow forum visitors). We have our own ways of communicating. Flaming isn't one of them. Please be civilized. 
5. Any advertising, including Internet projects (except for the cases of preliminary approval with the administration), is strongly prohibited. 
6. If you, as a user, violate the rules or defy a moderator's call, there is a big chance that you will be warned or banned from further use of the forum. 
7. Threats, harassment, bullying or pressure of users on the forum is strictly prohibited (via posts, private messages or e-mail).
8. Respect others' opinions and knowledge, even if that does not always agree with what you think and feel about a certain thing. Personal attacks are not tolerated in this forum. 


MESSAGE POSTING

1. Thread subject must be informative and reflect the core of the thread to the maximum. 
2. Before you create a new thread, make sure that you create it in the forum of the proper subject area and that this question hasn't been discussed before. 
3. Creation of identical threads in different sections and posting of similar messages in different threads is prohibited. 
4. Try not to make grammar mistakes in your posts, it will give a negative impression about you. Use the edit function instead of making new posts in succession in a topic. 
5. Posts on this forum must be written to the best of your ability in English. If you are unsure of words in the English language feel free to ask a member for help.
6. Use quotes sparingly and properly. No one wants to read a thread that is simply a string of quotes.
7. Forum Authority cannot take responsibility for any illegal content posted on the forums, as we cannot monitor each and every member on the forums. Although the staff of Forum Authority will delete any illegal content, we cannot promise to cover everything. 
8. The board administrator and its designated moderators reserve the right to (without reservation and without notification to the thread/post creator) edit or remove posts deemed to be objectionable, offensive or otherwise in violation of forum rules. 


PUNISHMENTS

When you violate any rule, you will receive either a warning or a ban. (Temporary or permanent. Depends on which rule was broken by the user) If you are banned from the forum, you are not allowed to create an account to evade this ban. This can lead to a one-month extension onto your already existing ban and a permanent deletion of your secondary account. 


Yours Sincerely,
The ForumAuthority Team.
