1 ) Read up before asking! Each forum has a dedicated thread with additional info.
2 ) Use the search function before posting to avoid duplicated questions.
3 ) Get to know the forum before you post.
4 ) Keep the focus: Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved, locked or simply be deleted.
5 ) Be nice to each other and respect the moderator. Profanity, racism, sexual discrimination, insults and images/themes of a potentially offensive nature will not be tolerated. If you have a problem with another member turn to the respective moderator and if the moderator can't help you send a private message to Christo.
6 ) Do not spam. No blatant advertising.
7 ) No warez, cracks, serials or illegally obtained copyrighted content! Links to content of a questionable nature, asking for, offering, or asking for help/helping to process such content in any way or form is not tolerated.
8 ) Keep the size of personal images down.
9 ) No cross posting. Post your message once, to the appropriate forum and nowhere else or it will be locked or deleted without warning.
10 ) Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention. Using caps is offending to other members.
11 ) Do not send questions pertaining to topics of discussion on this board via personal messages or email to Moderators or Admins, they will be ignored.
12 ) Don't post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain matter then don't post. The number of posts on this board has no direct relation to the experience of a member.
13 ) How NOT to post on this forum:
5 minutes after your initial post you reply to your own post writing something like "Why is nobody helping me? I'm sure you know the answer". Once somebody replies to your thread but doesn't give you exactly the answer you've been expecting you insult them.
Do not ask "what's best" because this question cannot be answered objectively. Each and everyone has their own view about what's best in a certain area. The best is what works best for you!
14 ) The official language is English. Outside the translator forum English is the only allowed language.
15 ) Multiple registrations are prohibited and are grounds for immediate account deletion.
16 ) Please maintain image sizes. Avatars maximum 120x100, Signatures maximum 400x75 If you need to hotlink an image from another site, please make sure that the width does not exceed 500 pixels. Please upload only JPG files. GIF and PNG is also supported but again, the width should not exceed 500 pixels. JPG files do not have these restrictions and will automatically be resized by the forum.
17) If you have lost your login password, please use the Lost Password link to have a new password sent to your e-mail address. Alternatively, send an e-mail to requesting help.
18) Duplicate accounts are not necessary, and serve to confuse users. PC Doctors does not tolerate duplicate accounts. If we find that you have created more than one account, we will ask you which account you'd like to keep, and we will then remove the duplicate(s).
19) If you have a utility that you want to upload, make sure to select the correct Category. Uploads will be reviewed by the Moderator Team and will then be made available in the Downloads section if appropriate.
20 ) Instructions by the moderator team are to be followed. The discretion of the moderators is to be respected, and their decisions are final. Moderators are not required to explain their actions to users.
