Initializing Tabs & loading Content...

Our rules really aren't that difficult to understand and follow. The forum rules is as follows:

  • Don't spam
  • Don't post pointless crap
  • Don't be shady
  • Do not post copyright-infringing material

If you can do that, your stay here will be easy and long.

By signing up and using this Forum, you agree to the following: Forum Rules

1. Spamming

  • Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product etc. Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users. If you need to showcase your website or business post it on Website & Business Promotion.
  • Please refrain from posting the same question and links in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question. Any sort of spam is subject to instant removal without warning. Any member posting spam, or perhaps using the Private Message (PM) to spam, will be banned immediately.

2. Do not post copyright-infringing material

You may only post content and articles that is yours. Posting copyrighted content, trademarks, and other violations of the DMCA is disallowed. Don't Copy and Paste Content from from other website.

3. Pointless Crap

First and foremost, this is an English speaking site (this means all public posts must be in English). If your English isn't that good, you are welcome to hang out, but please don't post something in poor English just for sake of posting. If you have a *legitimate* post, ask a friend to help you translate your post/question before posting it.

4. Deception

Pretty normal things apply to not being deceptive.

  • Are you doing anything that could be considered illegal? This includes (but not limited to) things like selling/distributing warez, offering hacking services, etc.
  • Duplicate Accounts - there are no circumstances whatsoever where we allow duplicate accounts.

5. Banned members

Do not post content on behalf of banned members. They are suspended for a reason. Doing so can lead to a ban for the poster who is conveying the information, as well as an increase in the ban duration for the poster who is posting the information.

6. What happens if I break a rule?

If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent.
The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.

Our last rule: Enjoy the forum!

Creating New Threads

For the most part, this should be common sense, but in case it's not...

  • Start threads in the most relevant forum category.
  • Don't create empty posts that contain nothing but a link (if you are going to link to a news article for example, give a summary of it in your own words). Be careful when linking to sites you are affiliates with, as it may cross the lines into self-promotion/spamming.
  • Unless it's earth shattering news (the discovery of intelligent life on another planet would qualify for example), don't post press releases.
  • Don't post personal attacks against other members. Take up whatever your issue you have with them privately. The world probably doesn't care that you don't like Joe.


This also should be common sense, but some of the things people like to try and do that isn't allowed...

  • Don't hijack threads/topics. This includes (but not limited to) purposely changing the subject, posting in someone's sales thread to offer your opinion (like "great design" or "unlimited hosting is a scam" when you have no intention of buying).
  • Don't post things that have no relevance to anyone other than who you are replying to (for example posting "PM Sent" or something along those lines is not necessary because the system already alerts them). If you really want to let someone know you sent them a private message, tell them in an extra private message to them.
  • Don't be lazy and "post offers". Do not reply to threads with your copy and paste offers (including "check out this thread", "check my signature", or "I have a blog, interested?"). Instead, take the time to send a worthwhile PM to your potential business client. Copy/paste posts, junk posts, and other ambiguous replies will be treated as spam and will be deleted, wasting your time and ours. We may also issue spam warnings which could very quickly lead to a ban.
  • Don't mask your links with a URL that redirects the user. If you want to link to something, link to the actual page. 
  • Don't post stuff that is a copy/paste. We don't have any need for duplicate content/plagiarism.


Information Gathered

In common with other websites, log files are stored on the web servers saving details such as the visitor's IP address, browser type, referring page and time of visit. Web logs are not kept indefinitely... our current policy is to delete logs after 4 days.

We also collect information from users when they interact with our site (for example when a user created an account).

How The Information Is Used

The information we gather is used to enhance the visitor's experience, including (but not limited to) personalizing the website to display information specific to you or display advertising.

Email addresses are never sold, rented, traded or leased to third parties.

Digital Signatures

We employ various digital signatures to track users (for example browser cookies) to help create the best possible experience for all users.

3rd Parties

Our privacy policies only applies to data we collect. We utilize some third party services on this site that may collect data about you. An example of some of the 3rd party companies that we utilize services from are Google, Facebook, Twitter and PayPal. Please refer to their privacy policies for more info.

Account Ownership

Accounts created here are licensed for exclusive use by the individual that created the account (they are not "owned" by anyone). Accounts are never "company accounts" regardless of the account creators affiliation or employment.

Users may have one account ever.

Changing/Deleting Your Posts

If you would like to edit (or delete) your posts, you can do so within 8 hours of making the post. After that, it is not possible for you to edit or delete the posts you have made here.

By registering at this site, you grant non-exclusive rights to publish content (posts, visitor messages, etc.) that you create here.

This is a public venue, a good rule of thumb is to simply not post anything that you don't want people to see.

Changing Another Member's Post

There are two options you have for getting a post altered (or deleted) that was written by another member (contacting moderators/administrators to do it here is not an option you have).

The easiest method is to contact that member directly. They have the ability to edit their own posts for 8 hours after making the post. If the time frame is beyond 8 hours, the original poster can request the post be edited by an administrator (the request may or may not be approved). Generally, if a post does not violate our rules, it doesn't get removed.

Disputes Between Members

Please don't ask to have a member banned simply because you don't get along with them. There are plenty of members that the administrators wouldn't consider friends, but it's not our job to silence members that we don't agree with.

Username Change

We would prefer you did not change your username (since it can cause confusion with other users), but if you feel you *must* change your username, you may contact us.

DMCA Notices

As an online service provider (OSP) of a public forum, we fully comply with with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Part of the DMCA allows a copyright owner to file a DMCA notice to get copyrighted content removed.
