Forum rules
  • Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Additionally, only one subject per thread and post a question only once.
    Users consistently posting to the wrong forum or not staying on a single subject will be given a warning (see policing below) followed by an infraction should they continue.
  • Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
  • Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
  • Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed.
  • Members are asked only to post in English, as this is an English speaking community. With exception only to the Languages forum.
  • Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.
  • Members should use an appropriate, descriptive subject when posting a new topic. Examples of bad subjects include; "Help me!", "I'm stuck!", "I've got an error!", etc. Examples of good subjects include; "Getting an TABLE FULL error upon login", "Cannot restore a backup", etc.
  • Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. Accounts with the apparent sole purposed to spam the forums with be instantly permabanned without warning.
  • The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users.
    Additionally, moderator warnings are not required for these rules and if any are given they are provided as a courtesy.
  • Users will not delete or significantly edit their established postings without good reason.
    Editing time is limited to 1 hour after the initial posting.
    If legitimate and significant edits need to be made to a posting you can PM one of the moderators with the proposed changed posting (full replacement) and at their discretion they may change it for you.
  • The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.

we have implemented a 1 hour editing limit on postings. Please keep in mind that even these edits should not include complete deletion of text in the posting and abuse of that will lead to at least an infraction and possibly short term banning until we can determine the motivation to make such edits.

This time period should be sufficient for most thought out postings.

Support of MODs, Styles, etc. and linking offsite
  • If the author of a Mod, theme, etc. maintains their own support board (or uses someone else's board) they may direct users to that board or site for the purpose of offering support and/or updates to their Mod/s. Alternatively authors may maintain a topic here at (in the appropriate forum) for each item they produce, directing users to that topic where appropriate. Such topics are intended for support only and not for general promotion of non-u-Auctions product, sites, and so forth.
  • Members may include or post links to 3rd party sites in an effort to render support for u-Auctions in response to a support request (including requests for Mods). Members are not permitted to post links to material unrelated to u-Auctions or where linked material is not relevant to a given support request.
  • General linking (within posts) to other sites is generally not permitted. Exceptions may be made where links are being offered in a "support context" for non-u-Auctions related questions. Acceptable support contexts may include (but are not limited to): problems with non-forum 3rd party software, hardware, and so forth.
