Forum Rules

Post by Pctweaks on Wed May 15, 2013 12:35 am

This board is here for support and help between the users of Elemental Zone Forum English version. So, it is important to keep this board clean for everyone's comfort and these following rules are here for this exact purpose.



Messages posted on the board



Topic titles: When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to your problem/question. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry" are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided. Why do we ask you to use explicit titles in your topics ?
Because the forum's search engine bases its search results on keywords found in topic titles

When you do a search, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?

Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem/question. Doing this makes the searches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question

Description of your problem/question: When you ask a question, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe your problem. The more info you give, the better we can answer you. Screenshots can also help depending on the problem. If you don't know how to take a screenshot you should read this tutorial

Language on this forum: When you write, SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided. Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write, so please put a minimum of care in your English, even if your English is not very good

Colors and capitals and size: When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it means that you shout), colors and bold. Re-sizing your text is also a bad idea. Overly large text resembles screaming. Colors and bold text are reserved for moderation, and is reserved for staff members

Flood and off-topic: Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single smiley must be avoided.
You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response.
As long as you topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to bump it. The minimum delay between two bumps is 24 hours, according to this board's default timezone (UTC - 7).
If you make a mistake or you want to make any modifications to one of your posts, please use the button at the top-right of the post, to avoid double-posting

Advertising for your forum: Spamming is not tolerated, even by PM. If you post about a problem, give the address of your forum only if it's really necessary to understand it. Or better yet : Put your forum address in your profile, so we will just have to click on the "Forum" button to check your forum

Copying and Stealing: Copying and stealing other members works such as graphics (Theme, Images) and or codes (CSS, Templates) is not allowed. If you are found to steal or copy others work you will be given a serious warning.

Other advertising: It is also forbidden to post advertising for money-related stuff, many of our members are under 18.

Registered Tutorials: Posting tutorials that make a user register in order to view the tutorial is not allowed. Off site tutorials that are view-able for guests are allowed. If found that you posted a tutorial that makes a user register you will receive a reminder for the first time, second time you will get a warning and the third time you will get a serious warning.

In addition to the rule of posting tutorials that must be seen by guest, you must watch how much you post to off site tutorials. As a note if the staff member feels that your posts have links to other sites in all your post or most of your post, you will be reminded to reduce the linking to tutorials on other sites or your own site. This is up to the staff member decision of whether this is an issue on advertising your forum to get members to register or view the forum.

Helping Users: If you know the answer to a question that a user asked and don't want to share it with other in your post, please refrain from posting. It doesn't help anyone of the board. This forum is a support forum to help users with questions or problems they have. If you continue to post you know answer or something similar to this line, but don't provide the answer you will be given three reminders and then a warning.
