armadaender Posted July 25, 2006 Share Posted July 25, 2006 By posting this topic I hope for everyone to contribute to what I have below in order for all new members to be welcomed into the forum. Most importantly, without running into some problems after a 'questionable' post. (These are not rules, these are guidelines) 1. Before posting a question, consult Google for he (she?) knows all. If you still cannot find what youâ€™re looking for then post a new topic asking your question. To get better answers it may help if you write, â€œI googled it butâ€¦â€, â€œGoogle couldnâ€™t help soâ€¦â€ You get the idea. Also, provide as much information as you can when asking for advice. That way the other members can help you faster without having to ask, "What's your set-up, which version are you running", etc. 2. If youâ€™re new to forums in general, then please take a minute to go over this link. 3. Before you post, please use the search function. You might be surprised to find that someone else may have already asked the question you were seeking information for. 4. Be sure to post in the appropriate section. Meaning one section for each thread you make. Basically, do not post the same thing in different sections just to "get more people to see your thread" This will usually result in deleting of posts. 5. Do not post unless you have something related to the topic. Spamming in a topic, and "bumping" a topic are not permitted. Additionally, keep your post coherent. Basically, donâ€™t do this: Example (No offence to nonoezel, but it was a great example). 6. Do not post your IP address asking if you're secure. I know Darren and Wess said to in episode (3?) but that was a joke, not something to be taken literally. If you don't know if youâ€™re secure or not, youâ€™re probably not... Posting your IP in this case is a BAD IDEA. 7. Flaming does occur but please keep it minimal. Also, please keep from posting any defamatory, inaccurate, harassing, hateful, threatening, invading of another's privacy, sexually-oriented, or violates any laws, posts. This is a (somewhat) family place and letâ€™s keep it that way. 8. No Caps Lock. Posting in nothing but caps is not only annoying but also gives an excellent depiction of your maturity and mental capacity. Please refrain from doing so. 9. Winners donâ€™t use Warez. Please do not post links to torrents (or any other file extension) of illegal material or material that would be considered questionable to some of our members (i.e. pornographic images). 10. Please abide by the avatar size of 160x100 pixels, and whatever signature size is appropriate. No huge, flashing signatures please. 11. The Hak5 forums aren't eBay, but if you want to try and hock your widgets here feel free and keep it in 'everything else'. We don't claim responsibility when it comes to transactions between users or anything of that nature. 12. The English language has certain rules, please make at least a vague attempt to follow them. 13. When introducing yourself, please use the Introduce Yourself thread. (Added by Moonlit) Welcome to Hak.5, make yourself at home and be sure to trust your technolust. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
