I dont want to bore you all with heaps of rules and regulations but we do need to abide by a few. please remember I run a tight ship and wont tolerate members breaking the rules

This forum is here to support and help all prospectors alike. So, it is important to keep this forum clean for everyone's comfort. The following rules are here for this exact purpose.

Messages posted on the forum

Before you post: A search should be done to see if your question(s) have already been posted. You can use the search function above.

Topic titles: When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to your question/problem. Words such as 'Urgent', 'SOS', 'Question', 'Problem' and 'Help' are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided.

Why do we ask you to use explicit titles in your topics ?
Because the forum's search engine bases its search results on keywords found in topic titles.

When you ask a question, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe your problem. The more information you give, the better we can answer you. Screenshots can also help depending on the problem.

Language on this forum: This is an English support forum, so please speak in English. When you post, please avoid SMS language such as L3375P34K (leetspeak). Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write. Therefore we ask that you put a degree of care into your English, even if your English is not very good.

Colors, capitals and size: When you write your message, please don't post in all-capitals as it looks like you are shouting. Re-sizing your text is also a bad idea; overly large text resembles screaming. Colors and bold text are reserved for moderation by staff members.

Spam and off-topic posts: Spamming is not tolerated. One-word posts such as 'lol', 'rofl' or a single smiley must be avoided. You must also avoid posting the same topic twice, unless you have a further question or that you have useful information to add to the topic. Otherwise it will not gain you a faster response.

As long as your topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to bump it. The minimum delay between two bumps is 24 hours (72 in the review section), according to this board's default timezone (UTC +00:00).

If you make a mistake or you want to make any modifications to one of your posts, please use the button at the top-right of the post, to avoid double posting.

Advertising your forum: Advertising is not tolerated, not even through private messages. You should only post your forum link when it is needed for the purpose of support.

Copying and stealing: Plagiarizing other members works such as graphics and/or codes is not allowed. If you are found to steal or copy others work, you will be given a serious warning.

Advertising. Please advertise items 4 sale or wanted it the appropriate section, commercial advertising will only be allowed with permission of the admin.

Behavior on the forum

Defamatory, racist, hateful, pornographic, illegal or insulting content will NOT BE TOLERATED on this forum. You must respect the fact that people may have a different opinion than you. If you are in conflict with another member, please use private messages to settle any disputes.

Please, be patient. It is useless to bump your topic every 2 minutes (see the point "Spam and Off-topic"). Every member of this forum has a private life, so they can't always respond immediately.

You must respect the moderators and administrators. They all work voluntarily on this forum and they are human, not machines!

If you received advertising, pornographic content or insults through a private message, you must send the whole message and a screenshot of that message to a moderator via PM. Do not open a new topic and post its contents on the support forum.

If you find a forum post that doesn't respect the Terms of Service, please report it immediately to management.

If you don't find your topic, it may have been moved to a more appropriate place. If you are not sure how to find it, click on your username in the 'Who is Online ?' section at the bottom of the homepage and go to the 'Statistics' tab of your profile. There you can do a quick search of all the posts or topics you recently made.

Do not moderate other members. Moderating is reserved for staff members only.

Avatar and Profile

Avatar dimensions: Your avatar's width must not exceed 150 pixels and its height must not exceed 200 pixels. These limits are here to avoid scrolling for people who have a low screen resolution. You must also respect the limit of storage space which is set at 300 KB. There are members who have a low-speed connection, and big pictures take time to load for them.

Your avatar is not an advertising banner. Avatars with your forum URL or links to any other sites must be avoided.

Sexually oriented, gore and any other type avatars that are considered to be inappropriate must be avoided.

Your 'Language', 'Location' and 'Hobbies' fields are not an advertising space, so links to your forum or other sites must be avoided.

Possible sanctions

If you have advertised via private message, you will receive a serious warning.
If your avatar doesn't respect the rules and you ignore the moderator's request to have it changed, the Administrator will forbid you from displaying an avatar.
Advertising for money-related stuff = Immediate ban
Ignoring the moderators warnings and continuing to not respect the rules and insulting people will result in a ban from this forum
Warnings: On this forum, depending on the severity of the rules that you break, you will notice one of the following images on the "warning level" on your profile:

- You have no warnings
- You have 1 warning
- You have a serious warning
- You are banned

Also note that warnings are adding up on your profile and you will get banned if you:
- Receive 3 reminders (Turns into a warning)
- Receive 1 warning + a serious warning
- Receive 2 warnings + a serious warning
- Receive 2 serious warnings
- If you spam you will be banned on the spot without any warning

Multiple accounts on this forum are not allowed.

If you have any question about one of the forum rules, please PM a moderator to ask your question.

Note: These rules may be modified/updated anytime, so we invite you to re-read them regularly.

We thank you for your comprehension and for respecting these rules.
