and Guidelines to
[ The Shared Forums ]
here are some rules and guidelines for our forums. Everybody
should read through these to know the do's and don't's of our
forums and answer some of your questions.
warez, No Serials, no [k]racks. This is clear, and it is the first
rule for a reason. Besides being wrong, piracy also gets us in
legal trouble. After multiple warnings, this will result in banning.
#2: Search around
before asking a question. A great place to search
you should also use the Search
tool on the forums to see if anyone has already asked you question,
another good place to look would be the Mac
Hacking Knowledge Base. If after trying all of these you can't
find an answer or any help, Post nicely asking if anyone can help
you, use a clear topic and give as much detail as possible.
If your question is forum related, check the built-in FAQ/Help
#3: Don't make unnecessary
posts. The worst thing to do is answer a post when you don't know
the answer to their question, it is much better to just keep quiet
or go search for an answer yourself and then
post the answer and explain/teach everyone how you did it.
#4: Be clear. Have
a very direct and narrowed-down subject on your post, use the
second line for more description. If you act childish and post
stuff like "hack this hotmail account!!!" or any similar
questions, you will lose all respect from people, probably get
no replies or just insults from others, and your post may just
get locked or deleted.
#5: Post your topic
in the best forum, don't just immediately post anything you want
in General Chat, post it in the forum which it is best fit for.
New members should post in the Newbie Forum until you get some
basic knowledge. Topics may be moved by admins or moderators if
they find another forum to better suit the topic.
#6: Be respectful.
We will not tolerate any disrespect between any of our members,
difference of opinions is fine, but don't cross the line. If you
feel like doing so, take it outside our forums.
#7: Respect the
Staff, warnings are usually to help you personally and we try
to be discrete and just send you a PM. We have conversations about
any members that are questionable in our staff forum, in which
any moderator can bring up banning someone, or
making them a moderator.
of these Rules/Guidelines are very important. As mentioned in
some of the rules, banning is an option, though we have only had
about 3 people banned since we started, and we only use this as
a last resort.
might find more personal guidelines in individual forums, like
hacker ethics or newbie help in the Newbie forum, etc.
be sure to comply with the Signature
Rules in your signature and try to keep the forum clean. Be
sure to also give our Stylistic
Guidelines a quick look.
for everything, and if you have any questions on any of these
feel free to PM any of the moderators.
