Our rules really aren't that difficult to understand and follow. The abridged version of the rules is as follows:
  • Don't spam
  • Don't post pointless topics or replies
  • Don't be deceptive
If you can do that, your stay here will be easy and long.

"Spam" is a catch-all term for posting things that are overly promotional in nature. This can be traditional spam like Viagra or iPhones for cheap, but it can also be less blatant things like posting something just to drop a link into your post or asking questions about something you already know the answer to (for example, if you worked at a tutoring company in New York and you start a thread asking people where to get tutoring in New York).

Don't direct users to your signature link. If someone actually needs whatever you have in there, they will see it on their own (or if you really must, you can send them a private message about it).

Attempts to artificially manipulate any of our systems can be seen as spam (for example, if you "like" a zillion posts that are not really likable).

Pointless Topics or Replies
Ask yourself these questions...
  • Did you just copy/paste your post or did you actually take the time to write it?
  • Is your post understandable to someone who speaks English? Even better would be if it's actually grammatically correct.
  • Does your post have any value to anyone other than the thread starter (if not, just send them a private message)? This includes things like posting publicly that you sent them a private message (they already know... the system notifies them).
  • Did you make an honest attempt to use the search function in any of the forums before submitting a post?
  • If you answered "No" (or even "Maybe") to any of those questions, simply don't post whatever it is.
  • Are you doing anything that could be considered illegal? This includes (but not limited to) things like selling/distributing software, offering hacking services, etc.
  • Are you lying to someone about anything? This could be as simple as your geographical location (if you are in Nigeria, don't make claims that you are in California). We actually don't care where people are from, but we don't like liars (from anywhere).
  • Duplicate Accounts - there are no circumstances whatsoever where we allow duplicate accounts - unless an administrator gives you permission. Our site is capable of alerting us when a duplicate account is made. Duplicate accounts can be multiple accounts you created, multiple accounts you use, etc. We don't allow shared accounts either (so don't let anyone use your account). In case we aren't being clear enough, you are allowed to create (and use) one account in your lifetime.
