Forum Rules

1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other websites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.

Spamming also includes sending private messages to many users.
DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers
Your account will be banned permanently, and your posts will be deleted.

2. Do not post copyright-infringing material
Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.

3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.

This is a website for webmaster professionals.

4. Do not cross post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.

5. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum, then the whole community can help and benefit.

6. Remain respectful of other members at all times
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.

However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.

General Posting Guidelines

1. Please use search first
There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique discussion that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.

2. Be descriptive and Don’t use “stupid” topic names
Please post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your discussion in the subject. (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects you should not post :
Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question, This is cool, Do this to get more traffic
Generally, anything similar to those are unacceptable.

Here is a good example of a way to post a discussion:
“how to do I increase my websites PR rank?”
or
"Ways to optimize your website for search engines?”
Be patient, help people out by posting good and useful replies, and not snapping at people with garbage such as
“Yeah, this will never work" or "Yes please, I also want to know"
