Please observe common forum etiquette. * Read the forums rules and guidelines before posting for the first time. * Search the other posts to see if your topic is already covered. * Use a meaningful title for your thread. * Do not use a forum to promote your product, service or business. * Be civil. Personal differences should be handled through email or IM and not through posts displayed to everyone. * Stay on topic. * Ignore spammers, respond to them personally and not through the board, or report them. * Do not submit a post that requires readers to download a large attachment. Either explain the attachment or, better yet, provide a link to the information. * Use plain text over HTML if you want your post to be readable by everyone. * In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members. * Do not double post (post the same message twice in one thread) or cross post (place the same message across several forums). * Act in a give and take manner; help others as often as or more than you ask for help. * Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts. In addition, one exclamation point is enough. * When replying to a post, do not quote more from the previous post than you have to. * Do not post new problems on someone else's thread and interrupt a topic of discussion. * Do not use someone else s thread for a private conversation. * No warez, cracks or illegal downloading of software and similar topics. * Watch your sense of humor, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages. * Do not use a huge and annoying signature, a modest signature is fine, moderators may remove large ones anyway. * Do not post any information that you want private. Posts should not contain personal, identifiable information or content embarrassing to others. * Do not post content that violates a copyright. * Do not post  empty  or useless responses, such as just  lol  or  cool.  Only post responses when you have something to contribute. * Write concisely and do not ramble. * Do not use words like  urgent  or  important  in your subject line, be patient. * Do not chastise newbies.
