    Forum posting guidelines[/b]
    v1.0 (October 22, 2002)
    • Ensure that your new topics are in the correct forum.
      • UltimateIRCdServices
        • ShadowRealm Creations do in generally NOT support any services on these forums. If you want to ask purely services related questions, do so in the services support forum.
    • Do not post topics or replies containing:
      • Subjects which have already been discussed numerous times (please Search first, as these topics are locked on sight).
      • Flames directed towards other users (locked on sight, possibly with a temporary ban).
      • Anything not relating to the original subject of the topic (although General Discussion is rather flexible).
      • Images linked from other sites without their permission (simply giving a URL is much more polite).
      • Any degratory comments based on age, gender, race, ethnicity or nationality (which will be met with a swift ban).
    • Do not promote your own site or network, unless:
      • It's to help somebody find something they're looking for.
      • It's to help give a better understanding of the problem you are having (Especially if your problem cannot be reproduced by anyone else).
    • Do not post spam.
      • pam includes advertisments, content deemed inappropriate or illegal, and flooding of the boards.
      • Spammers will receive a swift kick in the ass, as well as a lengthy ban.

      • Support may not be requested via instant messaging, private messaging or e-mail.
      • Your private messaging capability may be disabled if abused.
      • A central list of IM, PM and e-mail abusers is kept, so repeat offenders will be banned.
    • Ensure that your signature:
      • Remains a reasonable size.
      • Does not contain excessively large images or annoying animations.
      • Follows all the rules applying to posts themselves.
