Posting rules on Dynamic Drive Forums

1 Posting rules

  • 1.1) Always be respectful and polite when posting- There is absolutely no excuse to be rude, confrontational, or hostile when posting on Dynamic Drive. This is a place where web programmers come together to solve problems, not create them. Flaming can get you banned. Also show respect for the original owner of a thread by not inserting your own question into an existing thread. If you have a new question, even if it's a similar one or about the same script, please start a new thread for it.
  • 1.2) Abide by our Script Usage Terms- If you're looking for help with one of our DHTML scripts, make sure you're in accordance with our Script Usage Terms first, such as ensuring the credit notice within script remains intact on your page. We do not offer support to violators, and you will be contacted instead regarding the violation.
  • 1.3) Do not crosspost- Dynamic Drive Forums is divided into various categories. When initiating a thread, always locate the most appropriate category, and post your question only ONCE, in that category. Do not post the same question in multiple categories.
  • 1.4) No advertisements- Dynamic Drive Forums is not the classified ads. Do not post advertisements/ self promotion/ spam of any kind. Doing so will get you banned.
  • 1.5) No illegal requests- Do not post requests that are illegal or break the usage terms of the service in question, such as where to download warez, disable pop up ads on your free host etc.
  • 1.6) No objectionable content- Do not post content/subject/links that may not be appropriate to everybody, including minors. Examples include adult links, hateful/ distasteful content, vulgar language etc.

2 Miscellaneous Rules

  • 2.1) Signature- You may attach a signature should you choose to the end of your posts (via the "User Profile" feature). Signatures should be 4 lines or less, and can contain link(s). Images are NOT allowed.
  • 2.2) PM (Private messaging)- This forum allows you to send private messages to individual members. This allows you to communicate with a member one-to-one. PM posting follows the same guidelines as above (1.x). If you are the recipient of a PM that breaks our guidelines, please email the admin ASAP with a copy of the message. Note that your PM box can only hold a maximum of 70 messages. Be sure to periodically clear out your inbox/sent folders to ensure PMs to you don't bounce.

3 Penalty

  • Penalty for abusing/breaking the above guidelines will result in action taken either by a moderator or admin. Sometimes it's as simple as your post being edited out (which does not always equate to a penalty, rather, just a reminder), other times, you will be contacted and warned. In more severe cases, you will be banned immedately and without notice. However banned, it is permanent.

By participating in our forums you agree to comply to all of the above usage terms. Do not come to us after you've suddenly found your posting privileges permanently revoked due to violating them.
