Site Guidelines and Forum Posting Rules

4 posts in this topic

Salam Everyone!


We are a steadily growing community now. I thought about posting forum rules which are always a good idea to keep new members streamlined to forum decorum. Please do share your thoughts on any modifications to the rules. 

  1. Read the forums rules and guidelines before posting for the first time.
  2. Please use first names to address people & don't address anyone with a prefix. Calling someone Sir is prohibited. 
  3. Search the other posts to see if your topic is already covered.
  4. Use a meaningful title for your thread and topic tag.
  5. Do not use a forum to promote your product, service or business.
  6. Be civil. Personal differences should be handled through email or IM and not through posts displayed to everyone.
  7. Stay on topic.
  8. Ignore spammers, respond to them personally and not through the board, or report them.
  9. Use plain text over HTML if you want your post to be readable by everyone.
  10. In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members.
  11. Do not double post (post the same message twice in one thread) or cross post (place the same message across several forums).
  12. Act in a give and take manner; help others as often as or more than you ask for help.
  13. Do not use all caps or SHOUT in your posts. In addition, one exclamation point is enough.
  14. When replying to a post, do not quote more from the previous post than you have to.
  15. Do not post new problems on someone else's thread and interrupt a topic of discussion.
  16. Do not use someone else’s thread for a private conversation.
  17. SEFP prohibits warez, cracks or illegal downloading of software and similar topics.
  18. Watch your sense of humor, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
  19. Do not use a huge and annoying signature, a modest signature is fine, moderators may remove large ones anyway.
  20. Do not post any information that you want private. Posts should not contain personal, identifiable information or content embarrassing to others.
  21. Do not post content that violates a copyright.
  22. Do not post ”empty” or useless responses, such as just ”lol” or ”cool.” Only post responses when you have something to contribute.
  23. Write concisely and do not ramble.
  24. Do not use words like ”urgent” or ”important” in your subject line, be patient.
  25. Post stuff on the forum rather than sharing through other means(email etc). If your desired attachment type is not supported, inform the moderators so that changes to board can be made. You can always zip files and upload them.
  26. Do not chastise newbies.

Everyone is not from Nust bahi!

absolutely..but my point of view is different....By using "Sir" it seems a more respectable approach of a learner...

      Salaam Everyone,
      I would request you all to fill out the Topic Tags box when posting a new topic. See the attached file. It helps list similar thread so that a person can easily locate information on the forum. It is very important. Please uphold the request and use tags as much as you can. Just type things related to your topic and press comma to separate tags.
