Default Introduction

This thread is here to show you how to effectively participate in this forum whether it be asking or answering questions. In here you will find a number of examples of what to do, and what not to do.

First and foremost read the Posting Guidelines. There is no excuse to not follow them and this thread is not a substitution, but a supplement for them. The staff of this forum maintains these guidelines and continue to change them as they see fit. If you disagree with something in the guidelines, that is no excuse to violate them. Instead address your concern privately (via pm) with one of the Moderators or Administrators.

This forum is it's own entity. It does not belong to any one country and therefore is not subjected to the same laws you may be used to in the country where you live. That being said, we do make every effort to make sure that nothing goes on here that may be illegal in any country where those who participate here may be from, and this especially goes for the United States, where the site is hosted. Don't complain to the Moderators that they are violating your freedom of speech by deleting your post or any other "right" you feel you may have. Posting here is a privilege, not a right, and that privilege can be revoked at any time for any reason they see fit.

Please take the time to read through this thread in its entirety if you plan to spend any time here. There is no doubt that if you follow the Posting Guidelines and take the advice posted here by our most experienced members that you will enjoy your stay here and have no problems.
