The following rules are mainly intended to be a written rulebook for guests and/or new people in the guild. The rules are supposed to mimmick the overall consensus and feel of the guild as a whole.

The moderating, support and admin 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 determined by the moderators and administrators, not the users.

Rule #1:
Members should post in a way that is respectful towards other users, and consider carefully before submitting posts if any of their content might cause offence. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and may lead to a warning, possible editing or removal of the post, and in severe cases banishment from the forum.

Rule #2:
Members should post in a way that is consistent with ‘normal writing’. Users should not use excessive amounts of emoticons, must not SHOUT or use excessive amounts of punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in posts or post/thread titles.

Rule #3:
Members must refrain from excessive use of vulgar language, harassment of other users, racial or ethnic slurs, sexism, or slander.

Rule #4:
Spam will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning, and editing or removal of the post, and even banishment from the forum. Referrals to other 3rd party websites may be deemed acceptable if they directly address the question asked.

Rule #5:
Do not post URLs to inappropriate sites, such as pornography sites, warez sites, racist/hate sites, etc. Not only will your post be edited or outright removed from the forum, but might also result in banishment from the forum.

Rule #6:
Do not use inappropriate images on our forums - ones endorsing pornography, software piracy; or those that "slam" any individual or company.

Rule #7:
Do not invite another member to take the question off the forum (i.e. do not suggest that they post to a different forum and do not suggest that they email or private message you the problem).

Likewise, please do not answer questions by creating solutions elsewhere and then referencing those solutions via file links. We ask that you answer the question within the thread itself (note: providing links to existing articles on the internet is acceptable).

To that effect, please do not simply create a file with a solution, and provide a link to that. Some of the issues with providing links to files uploaded to the internet are: those links often expire, many users cannot download files from file-sharing sites to network security restrictions, and many users are reluctant to download files for personal security reasons.

Rule #8:
Soliciting business for yourself is not permitted on this board. This is an all volunteer board, so offering solutions in exchange for compensation is not permitted. Members caught violating this rule will be banished from the forum.

Rule #9:
Do not post duplicate questions. Posts of a duplicate nature will be deleted or locked. All related follow-ups, be they further related questions, clarifications or bumps, should be posted back to the original thread.

Rule #10:
We prefer that members do not cross-post questions to other forums, but when this does occur members must make clear that they have cross-posted and must provide links to the cross-posts. Cross-posted questions that do not comply may be deleted or locked.

Rule #11:
The policy of this board is NOT to assist with the breaking of passwords under any circumstances. Such posts will be deleted or locked and may lead to a warning.

Rule #12:
Please do not publicly re-post private emails, or private discussions without the express written permission of the e-mail's original sender (e-mail is protected by copyright).

Rule #13:
Please do not post any privat information i.e pictures, email addresses, standard addresses, ICQ and other messaging client numbers or phone numbers, which are not your own, unless explicit permission from the person in question. 

Rule #14:
Members may use only one username on our forums.

Rule #15:
Do not attempt to impersonate other forum members, forum officials, and forum moderators/administrators. Members caught attempting this will be banished from the forum.

Rule #16:
Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". If a member notes an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are encouraged to bring it to the attention of the moderators, by sending a private message to a moderator.

Rule #17:
Members must not post accusations to the public boards.

Rule #18:
If you wish to make a complaint about another member, or moderator, please send a private message to AdminMsg.

Rule #19:
Any user that has been banished from the board may not re-subscribe under a new username, unless express permission has been given by the moderators.
