First and foremost DO NOT use shout box or pm's for questions of help related items. THESE are what threads are for, so post in appropriate section,(You may then put a link in shout box to point to the thread.. in form of "Help required and the link") This way means others can then gain knowledge from the help given there also. you may also be shown more than one way to accomplish your goals by having more than one person giving you advice. Also keeps the forum alive!! which is important..
DO NOT HOG the chat box you are not the only one that may want to use it... keep chat short long chats use your pm system!
DO NOT CURSE.. (Insulting, contemptuous, or coarse speech)
DO NOT SPAM, in any form...
DO NOT ABUSE other users.. (Creed, Religion, Sexual Orientation, etc.)
DO NOT ask someone personal information in the shoutbox or in a post. (If you need to PLEASE! do that over a private message.)
(What deems abuse will be decided by administrators per nature of reported case)
