We ask that our users follow the guidelines below when using the community. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in the moderation, moving, merging, deleting or locking of your posts. Repeat violation of any of the below guidelines may result in a system warning or infraction.

Know your Moderators.
Every forum has at least one Moderator. Forum Moderators are listed on the Staff page. If you have an issue within a forum, please PM a Moderator of that forum for assistance. Should the situation need to be escalated to the Administration, the Moderator will do so.

Use the Technical Support forum.
We have a forum available for Technical Support. Before posting, please review the existing posts to see if your question has already been answered. If it has not, start a new topic and describe the problem you are having in detail, including a link to the page you were on when the issue occurred (if applicable) and the exact error message (if applicable).

Technical Support issues which are PMed to Moderators or Administrators will be ignored.

Identify your subject matter.
Not everyone has time to read all forum postings. To ensure that your message reaches the right people at timely manner, identify your subject matter clearly in the subject line. Subjects like "a question" and "help!!" are not very helpful.

No test messages.
Please do not post test messages to the boards.

No need to scream.
Typing in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is the Internet equivalent of screaming. Please don't post your thread topics in all capital letters.

Stay on topic.
Please pay attention to the thread topic, and check that your post still relates to the thread to which you are posting.

No cross-posting.
It is never appropriate to post the same message to two forums. Please don't do it. If your topic fits in more than one forum, please pick the most appropriate forum and post it there.

Update your thread.
If you have an update to a situation and the original post still exists, please post your update to the same thread, there is no need to start a new one. The users who were following the situation will be more likely to see the update if you add it to the original thread.
