    Forum rules and regulations

    FORUM RULES AND REGULATIONS


    All users are expected to abide by our rules irrespective of their seniority/nationality/etc. Unable to follow the rules not only can give you temporary bans but also permanent ones.


    BE RESPECTFUL
    The purpose of the forum is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting.


    RANTING IS PROHIBITED
    A rant is a post which is long-winded, redundant and filled with angry, non-constructive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and is helpful, but rants are disruptive and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise, clear manner and avoid going off on rambling tangents.


    PERSONAL ATTACKS ARE PROHIBITED
    Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to personally berate or insult another. Text of this nature is not beneficial to the community spirit and will not be tolerated.


    RACISM AND OTHER “…isms”.
    No racist posts are allowed or other posts that are designed to put people down based on their nationality/sex/color/creed/etc.


    PHOTOS AND VIDEOS
    You are not allowed to create threads in other sections solely to discuss photos and videos except in the Photos and Multimedia sections such as Military Photos & Multimedia and General Photos & Multimedia. Understand copyrights.


    OTHER FORUMS
    In order to ensure healthy relationship with other forums we ask you not to talk about other forums or link them. Keep the topics related to other forums to their forum only.


    COMMENTS ON MANAGEMENT'S DECISION
    Don’t make posts about a decision made by a moderator or admin that you feel was unfair. These decisions are usually final. If you wish to appeal, you are free to contact a staff member.


    TROLLING
    Trolling is the word used to describe a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting the members of the forum community. Posts of this nature are disruptive and do not convey a friendly attitude.


    PERSONAL INFORMATION
    Please respect the privacy of others and do not give out information such as phone numbers and addresses. Please don’t post credit card/social numbers in anyway through the website. Private communication between the members, moderators and administrators of the forum and the forum users is not to be made public on these forums or by any other venue. You are not permitted to publicise any private correspondence (including petitions) received from any of the aforementioned.


    IMMEDIATE BANNING
    The posting of pornography; discriminatory remarks which are sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; excessive obscene or vulgar language; posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned; advertising other websites on our forum.


    SPAMMING AND BUMPING
    Spam is considered to be repetitive posting of the same text again and again or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users. Bumping posts in order to keep them near the top of the list is also prohibited. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome.


    REDUNDANT AND DUPLICATE THREADS
    As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Keep discussions about one topic to one thread only.


    IMPERSONATING
    Impersonating another forum user, moderator, staff, administrator, or member is prohibited. You are expressly forbidden from impersonating anyone else, including those named above, on the forum. This may be grounds for permanent loss of your account.


    ADVERTISEMENTS
    Advertisements and spams through any feature of the website are considered serious offence. Posts discussing or linking to your own site or other defense forums are prohibited.


    PROFANITY
    Using partial masking (such as asterisks or punctuation marks) to byp*** the profanity filter is prohibited and will result in the same action as if the actual word had been typed.


    NEWS AND INFORMATION
    You must give credit to online newspapers by posting their article with link. The link should be in the end of the post to keep the professionalism, and better if you quote the news, so members can easily tell which one are your own words and which ones aren't. Also bold the title and make it in red color to make it look perfect. Understand FAIR USE.


    MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
    After violating multiple rules and getting banned multiple times you may get banned permanently. In that case you might be looking for another account. Please know that multiple accounts are prohibited and we will track you. So just abide by the rules and post constructively and nothing will happen.


    ONE LINERS
    The rules have been put into place to make the forum act like a serious forum. One liners are prohibited in every section of the forum except The Chai Shop and introduction forum. Please also look at the spamming rule.


    LINKS
    When you post a new thread about a certain news or information make sure you put the link of where you got it from.


    If you have any issues you would like to ask about please contact the admins, mods, Aryan_B or Superkaif.


    Most of all, HAVE FUN.
