Professional language must be used at all times - it's acceptable to disagree, but do it in a manner that wouldn't get you fired!
Use appropriate forums - select a forum that best reflects your interest. If no forum suits your interest, you may decide to post in the General Discussion category or in Off Topic Discussions category. No category suits your interest? Suggest new one.
One thread per topic - do NOT create 5 new threads in several forums to draw attention to your post.
No advertising - the exception to this rule is sharing a link to your products/services; this is acceptable in your signature.
No bumping ( to bring up a post typically by posting the word "bump" or other words on a forum's thread ) for 24 hours - most of us check the forum once a day, therefore you'll get an answer no faster if you bump your topic two hours after you posted it.
Chat Room Rules
Rule 1: No spamming
When you come into the room, just say “Hi.” Do not do this:
Guest 2: Hello!!!!!!!
Guest 3: Why is NO one talking to me??????????????
Rule 2: No personal attacks or harassment
No attacks against someone’s race, religion, politics, sex, sexual orientation, etc. No acts of harassment of a violent or sexual nature.
Rule 3: Type in normal English
Don’t type “hu is ur fave ofc chrctr” if you meant to say “Who is your favorite Office character?” Some abbreviating is okay (brb, lol, for example) but the average person shouldn’t have to be a CIA code specialist to understand you. And NO SHOUTING (For example: I LOVE MANCHESTER).
Rule 4: Don’t monopolize the conversation
Please, try to engage in conversation with other people. The chat room is for everybody, it’s not just about you.
Rule 5: No solicitation
Don’t hype your latest blog, fansite, chat room, drawing, fanfiction, CafePress tshirts, or whatever. That’s rude.
Rule 6: Don’t use the chat room for your personal business or promotion
Every chat you have is saved and reviewed on a regular basis. Don’t use the rooms for your personal business, promotion or advertisement.
Rule 7: Don’t use multiple usernames
Please just use one username. Don’t post under multiple identities; they will be deleted.
Rule 8: Everything else
Anything not mentioned in one of the rules above, but that is still considered bad behavior, is NOT ALLOWED. The Mod Squad is a pretty tolerant bunch, so if something pisses them off, you know you’re in trouble. Violation of any of the rules may be grounds for suspension from the chat rooms.
