General Rules:
  • While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
  • Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. For general 'how-to' questions this should be 24 hours. For specific troubleshooting issues, use 12 hours as a guideline.
  • We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature or violate IANAG Forum community standards. The IANAG team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
  • Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
  • Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
  • All member logins must be created with good taste. Anything that is questionable/offensive will be dealt with at the sole discretion of forum administration. Including but not limited to immediate change of username and/or a ban of your account.
  • While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about various products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'ooh look, yet another bulletin board' threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
  • If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post.
  • Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  • You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
  • You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
  • We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules, as access to our support forums are a privilege and not a right. Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted.
  • Links created using TinyURL or a simiar service are prohibited and will result in the removal of such link without notification. If you need to post a link use the [url] tags or the insert link button in the reply editor.
Advertising Services
  • We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products or services. Explicit advertising and solicitating in sigs is also prohibited.
  • Links in signatures must follow these guidelines:
  • Linking to a commercial product/service is prohibited except under special circumstances. The IANAG team will determine what is allowable and what is not.
These rules are not all-inclusive and will be amended as time goes on or as unforeseeable circumstances arise.
