Default Important Forum Rules and Posting Guidelines

GENERAL RULES:

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 and/or suspended.

Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc.

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.

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 coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT (posting in all UPPERCASE text) or use excessive punctuation (e.g. !! and ??) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.

Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. Users posting spam will be warned, suspended and banned and their post removed.

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.

We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature or violate Uinternet.com community standards. The Uinternet.com team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.

Discussion of illegal activities are not allowed.

Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.

We reserve the right to remove offensive posts and member profiles without prior 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 (including links in your registration profile under "Website" in "Memberlist" and in your signature) or links that lead to click-through ads page(s), or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts and member profiles will be subject to removal.

This Forum is not a marketplace and "For Sale", "Wanted", "Trade" ads of any sorts are not allowed.

You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests anywhere on this forum including your profile and signature.

No other related forums are allowed to advertise in anyone's registration profile under "Website" in "Memberlist" nor in signatures. Do not link to a Forum (Discussion/bulletin board) or to a website with a forum in it.

We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules.

Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted.

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 signatures, avatars, profile pictures, and member profiles and profile homepage links is also prohibited.

You should never give out your Uinternet.com customer number or password to anyone, and you should not disclose server logins and/or passwords to anyone except through the Uinternet.com support system. We can not take responsibility if you disclose this information to anyone else.

LINKING GUIDELINES:

Linking to a commercial product/service is fine, provided it is not a product or service that competes with a product or service offered by Uinternet.com, does not advertise or promote use of any kind of medicine or prescription drugs and it is not an affiliate program link for Uinternet.com or any other affiliate program. We reserve the right to request removal of links from your profile and signature that we may consider inappropriate.

Members that do not contribute to the forum and those who do not actively participate in the forum (including new members with less than 10 posts) are not allowed any kind of links in their registration profile under "Website" in "Memberlist" nor in signatures.

A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial, does not contain product(s) and/or service(s), is not a forum or a message board and is not linking to other commercial websites is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate Uinternet.com community standards. The Uinternet.com team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex. New members with fewer than 10 posts are not allowed any kind of links in their registration profile under "Website" in "Memberlist" nor in signatures.
