1. RESPECT OF OPINION
Users should respect everyone's opinion. If you found one opinion to be aggressive/provoking, do not fight back. Instead, report that post to our Moderators, or you can also email/"shout"/message them. "Print screen" the post to have a stronger, valid proof. Our Moderators shall be the ones who will deal with that user.

When reporting with "print screens", be sure to upload your image file to an image gallery site, (i.e photobucket.com, photos.mozcom.com) and just add the link to your post.



2. TROLLING
When a certain poster posts controversial messages particularly on another team forum, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response.



3. FLAMING
When a user fights back with aggressiveness/provoking posts, it is considered to be flaming. Flaming is a serious offense. Users who are involved in "flaming" posts shall be given necessary punishment.



4. SHOUT
No badwords. No nonsense fights. If a moderator caught a user disobeying these rules, the moderator shall take necessary actions for that user.



5. INVASION OF PRIVACY
The highest violation any one can do pertaining to below the belt acts is privacy/personal invasion.

This concerns taking things personally against the person, through:
a. Publicly disclosing private facts - unauthorized information that identifies facts about the forumer, anything not publicly known but was researched upon for insult, shame or anything deregatory for its purpose.

b. Appropriation or publicly disclosing private images --unauthorized use of a person's likeness or image for any deregatory and insulting purpose.

A warning is given when one of the following violations are committed.

1. FLOODING
When a user posts topics/replies consecutively, without even giving other users a chance to reply to his/her first topic/reply, is considered flooding, this is strictly prohibited. These topics/replies will be deleted at once by our Moderators.

2. TOPIC DECENCY
a. Topics, Posts and Signatures consisting of indecent, vulgar, dirty, etc. words shall be immediately edited or have its thread locked. The poster will receive warning.(To be kept as violation evidence. Moderators can edit it on the relevancy of the action if necessary only)

b. Uploading images containing nudity, disturbing images and the like is strictly prohibited. Such posts shall be immediately deleted.

3. TOPIC RELEVANCE(Minor)
Topics with different titles, but is or almost the same with an existing topic shall be locked, merged or deleted upon the approval/initiative of our Moderators.

4. SPAMS/SPAMMING
No short/meaningless/off-topic posts in attempts to increase your post count, or for any other reason. All posts should consist of five words or more. \"Spam\" posts shall be deleted by our Moderators.

5. TOPIC/POST FORMAT
a. Type Properly
Refrain from posting using SMS language, ALL CAPS or ~F*a*n*C*y*_TeXt~ as it makes the posts difficult to read.

b. Do not Abuse Font Properties
Use only the bold/italic/foNT/color tags to emphasize something, not in your entire post.

6. ABUSE OF SMILEYS
a. Since smilies say what you feel at the time you were posting your message, one or two smileys maybe enough after a few sentences. A post with one smiley (or smiley only answers) will be deleted without warning.

b. A moderator will give a maximum of 2 warnings (public) on an over posting of smileys. This would be applied only if numerous instances of advises have been ignored by the poster.

7. IMAGES
Refrain from uploading large sized images. You can use photo gallery sites (like photobucket.com) and just create a link to your picture in the post. This is to lessen the download time of the posts in your browser. Large sized photos/pictures will be deleted at once.

8. COPYRIGHT ISSUES
REFRAIN FROM POSTING FULL TEXT OF ARTICLES. If you find an article that you'd like to share with others, just post a synopsis of the article then include a link to the article. Don't forget to cite the source so as to minimize risk of copyright lawsuit.
