Please understand these rules aren't intended to prevent people from speaking their mind (good or bad) or to impose myself as an iron-fisted ruler. They are intended to help keep the forums functioning fairly and smoothly.
1.) Use the search function, both in the forum and the wiki. Please do not create a new thread when an appropriate thread exists already.
2.) Read the FAQ
before posting a problem.
3.) Submit bugs via the Mantis bug tracking system
. The bug tracker makes it much easier for developers to keep track (obviously) of all unresolved and resolved issues. You are free to and in fact are encouraged to discuss any issues in the forums.
4.) Do not spam the forums or wiki. You may post outside links (including your own website) but please do not continuously post the same link.
5.) Commercial transactions and advertisements are prohibited unless pre-approved by the site administrator.
6.) Do not post torrents. Our hosting provider does not permit hosting or even linking to torrents. I don't like this rule but we have to follow it.
7.) Follow any licensing rules, such as attributing information to the original author. Do not post copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright holder.
