The Rules of Conduct are general guidelines for regular users on acceptable behavior in the Anomalien.com forums. These guidelines may change at the discretion of the Community Manager as necessary to foster an environment appropriate to civil discourse.
This outline is a basic set of guidelines and does not encompass every foreseeable event, and individual infractions will be dealt with by moderators on a per incident basis.
The Community Manager and Moderation Team has sole discretion on how to interpret and apply these rules to circumstances and situations, including discipline or exception.
Rule No1 - No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums
Anomalien.com forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc. Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.
Rule No2 - Flame or Provoke
Do not insult or flame other members of the forum. Similarly, do not post with the intention of provoking a reaction from fellow members. This includes encouraging flame wars. Instigation is not tolerated.
■ Search the forums. Someone else may have already answered your question/discussed the topic.
■ Use paragraphs, and avoid walls of text that are hard to read.
■ Keep criticism constructive. Attack the idea, not the person.
■ Check out our guide to posting images and styling your posts.
■ Report violators to the Moderation Team by clicking "Flag" under the post.
■ Post in ALL CAPS or use excessive punctuation!!!
■ Share personal information, like your email address. Identify theft is real.
■ Bump threads. Posting in a thread only to bring it back to the front page of the forum is not allowed.
■ Hijack a topic. Stick to the original conversation.
With these in mind, please remember to have fun. Most of these guidelines are common sense, and serve to keep the forums useful for everyone. We thank you for your cooperation and support in this, and if you have any suggestions or feedback regarding the Rules of Conduct, please contact a Administrator.
