Following these standards will increase your experience for an extended period of time.
Spam of any kind is not allowed on our community. Low-quality posts, malware and phishing content, referral links, affiliate links, URL shorteners, and abuse of the reply or private message system.
Unsolicited messages promoting any product, service or website to other members is also prohibited.
New members may be subject to stricter moderation and must not try to inflate spam or low-quality posts into their post count.
Don't post effortless content
Members are expected to show effort when creating threads and posts.
Threads should follow certain criteria - they should be something that can be discussed (and potentially, debated), an open-ended question, statement, or idea, and something that will ultimately contribute to the community as a whole.
Posts should be well-written, with more than one or two sentences and enough substance to hold an interesting conversation.
One-word posts, yes-or-no questions, spam, and purposely inflammatory posts do not contribute to the forum.
Post creation privileges can be revoked or suspended if a member creates threads that are of low quality.
Don't be dishonest
Creating threads which include scans of magazines or illegal links to copyrighted materials is prohibited.
Selling stolen goods, pirated goods, illegal products or anything that could cause trouble for the community is also prohibited.
If the moderators are made aware of a listing that violates any of the rules, the member will be banned and the listing(s) will be deleted.
Every user is only permitted to have one account.
If several accounts are found, all accounts will be subject to an immediate, permanent ban.
Sharing of accounts is also forbidden and will be dealt with in the same way.
It is important to treat every member with respect.
Remember, treat everyone how you would like to be treated. The community is an all-inclusive community and members should be respectful of different nationalities, cultures, ethnic groups, gender and sexual identities.
Do not argue for no reason
Debates are encouraged, but members should not engage in disingenuous arguments or argue for no reason to upset others.
Trolling, or posting with the intention of provoking a negative response from other members, is prohibited.
Show some effort
When creating a post, members should show effort, write clearly and accurately, and choose a good title that summarizes the first post of the thread with good grammar and punctuation.
Do not use any caps or emojis in headings. Do not post a clickbait — these are titles designed to draw attention by deliberately withholding relevant information or misrepresenting it.
Be mindful of external content, do not create threads which include scans of magazines or illegal links to copyrighted materials.
