Rules of these forums


Post by richb » Thu Dec 23, 2010 1:18 pm

Do not post topics that relate to different genders, race, color, politics or religion. Discussion of these topics can cause problems and quickly degenerate into arguments. This applies to minors (this includes nudity and sex), as well. Do not use swear words, whether directly or masked with other characters. If you have a problem with a mod or another community member here, first try to resolve it privately (through pm's or emails) yourself and if that doesn't work then email us at forumadmin@mxlinux.org to discuss it. Keep personal problems off the forums. Let's try to keep peace among the community and for visitors.

Certain usernames will not be allowed. If a user registers with a questionable username, action will be taken. Examples are usernames that have profanity, sexual references or product references. This is not an exclusive list and it will be the discretion of the forum administrators what will be allowed. The action taken will be to ask the user to request a different username. If approved the administrator will implement the change. If the user refuses they will be banned from the Forum.

When a user has three warning for Rules violations, they will be banned for a period of 7 days. After that period the user will be reinstated automatically. Another warning after being reinstated will trigger a permanent ban.

No spam on this or any other forums please! If you post advertisements on these forums, your account may be deleted.

Solicitations for donations to any organizations regardless of their intentions or structure, other than relating to MEPIS or MX, are not allowed.

Advice on installing or debugging digital forensics and penetration testing software will not be given on this Forum, as it lies outside our mission. If members wish to install or debug such software they should contact the developer or pose their questions in a web forum dedicated to that purpose, and they will be directed to do so.

Do not copy and paste entire or even up to half of someone else's words or articles into posts. Post only a few sentences or a paragraph and make sure to include a link back to original words or article. Otherwise it's copyright infringement.

You can talk about other distros or OS's here (talk or discuss, not bash for any reason), but no MEPIS or MX bashing. You can PM one of the developers of MX if you just want to say you dislike or hate MX . I'm not saying that you can't say you don't like something about MX but know that you can PM one of the developers to state what you don't like or would like improved or added.

Any background image or other artwork submissions must include copyright information and explicit permission of the image's original creator to use the image. This includes a direct post of the image or links to a compiled image archive.

Stay relevant and on topic when posting. Posts that are not relevant to the topic waste everyone's time.

Images added to post via hot links from other websites will be limited to a 600 x 600 pixel size as they appear in the Forum post. Large images take up large areas of the post and thread space, are distracting and impede the flow of the thread. You can post the link to the full image without the [img] tags.

The Rules will be interpreted by the Moderators and Administrators in specific cases. They are not all inclusive and the Forum Staff has the right to moderate posts with discretion in all cases
