- [*]Show respect at all times.[*]Personal attacks are prohibited. This specifically means any text/post that is blatantly attacking another person on or off the forum, especially in a personal way.[*]Trolling is prohibited. Trolling is whenever someone is clearly, deliberately posting in a manner for the purpose of angering and/or insulting the other participants of the board. Trolling DOES NOT encourage further discussion in the long run, it only encourages personal attacks (if left unchecked).[*]Bans and warnings are not to be discussed on the forums. Any inquiries or comments or bans are to be sent in private messages or via e-mail. A moderator may choose to publicly inform the participants of a forum about bans and warnings if this is in the interest of the forum.[*]Posting of pornography, racist or otherwise discriminating remarks, threats to cause physical or mental harm, extreme offensive language, material that breaks any law or otherwise totally unacceptable posts or links to pages that contain the aforementioned material may result in an immediate ban from the forums.[*]Spamming the forums is prohibited.[*]Not responding to or ignoring moderator warnings can lead to suspension.[*]Off Topic (OT) are not prohibited, but should be posted within reason.

If you have a problem with it then e-mail the moderators.[*]POSTING A MESSAGE OR SUBJECT IN ALL CAPS IS PROHIBITED
If your wondering where your post went, it was probably deleted based on the discretion of the moderators. Don’t blame them or take it personally, they have a tough job and so far they have been doing it very well.
Banning people is the last resort, and we very, very rarely do it. A warning will be sent before being banned, unless an negative or offensive comment is made towards a moderator. That will result in an immediate ban.
Thanks, and we really appreciate all of the terrific contributions people have made [:D]
