c) Creating another thread which is similar to an existing thread.
Before you create a new thread, please use the search function in the forum to see if there is an already existing thread that you can use as a reference.

Please provide thumbnails or URL links, if you are going to post multiple pictures in a single post.
Rule #5: Forum Ethics and Courtesies

Different people have different views, so please show courtesy to others if their opinion differs from yours. If you are planning to pursue an arguement, please criticize the opinion and not the person.

d) Please refrain from using swear/cuss words excessively.
Rule #6: All Content Posted in the Forum Must Be “Work Safe” and Legal.
That means no explicit contents, posted or linked visible images. Images that are generally marked as gross, sick, or offensive in nature will be edited or removed appropriately. Should you want to post it, make sure that appropriate warnings are mentioned in the particular thread shown. Make sure that a warning is indicated CLEARLY in the post when you do post such explicit images or any sites that may be harmful in any way. This also depends on the number of complaints received from members or if it goes against our better judgment, the thread will be removed without prior notice.
Also, threads/post containing or directing to copyrighted materials and illegal content, including cracks, patches, serial numbers, etc etc will be deleted.

Rule #9: Site Promotions and Advertisements are prohibited.
Creating a thread with the intention of promoting your own (or an affiliated site) is strictly prohibited. Advertisements such as “free PCs, or cheap sneakers, etc etc” are not allowed. These threads and posts will be deleted on sight.
Links to sites that contributes to the topic of the thread are allowed though.
Please use the report button, or send a “Personal Message” to any of the admins/mods, if you find other members who are breaking the rules. However, if you intentionally report or falsely accuse someone with intention of degrading the forums, you will be subjected to a fitting punishment.
