PostSubject: Rules & Regulations that users have to familiar with.   Sun Mar 09, 2008 12:30 pm

Board-wide Policies

Forum rules
a) 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.

b) Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.

c) Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting defamatory, offensive, knowingly false or inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning or banning. In particular, you agree not to post any material glorifying, inciting or endorsing ethnic, racial or religious hatred, strife or intolerance, promoting or advocating sexual violence, sexual activity involving coercion or non-consent of any kind, homosexuality, lesbianism, incest, paedophilia, bestiality or necrophilia. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, you agree not to post messages containing links to adult content (eg. pornography sites or sites containing any form of nudity), messages containing explicit, profane or otherwise objectionable language, messages in all CAPS and messages that are disrespectful to the Forum Administrator(s), Moderator(s) & Volunteer(s).

d) 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 or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned or banned.

e) Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. The following are considered SPAM:

(1) Double posts/threads. If you posted something and realized you made a mistake, use the edit/delete option.
Please only put one thread in an appropriate forum, not several forums on the site.
(2) Grossly off topic posts. Off topic posts are posts which do not relate to the original post/topic, or are placed in
the wrong category/thread. While we realize threads often expand into different topics, we encourage
members to do their best to stick with the original topic. If, during the course of a discussion, an unrelated
matter comes up that you want to address, simply start a new thread.
(3) Posts that obviously serve no purpose other than increasing one's post counts.

Advertising or Spam is defined as posting a link for the purpose of selling, soliciting or promoting by someone that has ownership or other "vested interest" to the web site involved, including efforts to promote other online forums or web sites by web site owners. This forum has always had an 'open door' policy regarding links to other sites. As long as that is not being advertised by a brand new member in their first few posts (otherwise known as obvious SPAM), we are perfectly fine with it. However, our members did not sign up to receive SPAM on the forums or in their private message or mail inbox. Sending a link to any member containing such information ("Hey, come join this forum ..." etc.) is considered SPAM, especially if the member posting it is not an established member.

Additionally, posting of a website as a first and/or only post is also considered SPAM. Contributing members are more than welcome to post links - all we ask is that advertisement not be your sole purpose for membership. For this reason, we ask that you wait until you have reached the 10 post threshold before posting a thread containing a link to another website.

a) Users will be warned a maximum of two times for any and all offences. If the need arises for a third warning a temporary or permanent ban will be put in place.

b) Arguing with administrators and/or moderators after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed two strikes a ban will be put in place as above.

c) Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade a[*]n email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.

d) An exception to the two strike rule applies when users contact team members personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.

e) Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While we may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurence.

f) Governing Law - You agree that both Singapore land Malaysia law shall govern your access to this website and the Forum and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Singapore and Malaysia courts.

g) Third Party Rights - No person shall have any right pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 2001 to enforce any of the above terms and conditions.

The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to the administrator and moderators and not users.

The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revokation of private messaging.

We thank you for your cooperation & efforts in making this forum a friendly and enjoyable place. You and i play a part in the community forum. Wink
