The Rules

Postby Fonefixer » June 27th, 2011, 8:17 am

Yes, I know rules are boring, but they exist for the protection of forum members and to ensure that this forum is a safe place for all to see.

I would like to draw your attention to the screen you saw when you registered on this forum. I doubt you read it fully so here's a section of it. Please read it, its important!

"You agree not to post any links to copyrighted material, or post abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where “ | Scroll Tablet PC” is hosted or International Law. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed required by us. The IP address of all posts are recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that “ | Scroll Tablet PC” have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should we see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered to being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, neither “ | Scroll Tablet PC” nor phpBB shall be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised. "

What does it mean?

It means the moderator team scan every post, if we see one that we think is unsuitable we (admin/moderators) have the right to modify/delete it at our sole discretion. We also have the right to issue the poster with a warning or ban (temporary or permanent) dependant upon to severity of the matter. Please also try to ensure your post is in the relevant section, and if you are the "topic-starter" make sure that your title is informative (ie not just "help", "problem" etc). Whilst we are aware that there are members of this forum who are not native English speakers, this is an English-speaking forum, we therefore request that you post only in English even if it means the use of an online translator (we realise they are not always correct so we will modify the relevant post for clarity if needed).

Forum Etiquette


1) Be polite.
2) Make your post as precise as possible but bear in mind forum members may not be as technically knowledgeable as you are.
3) If writing a "how to" put it in "laymans terms" as much as possible.
4) Use the forum search function before posting. Chances are your question will have already been answered.
5) Keep it clean - there are no age restrictions on this forum.


1) DONT SHOUT! Use of caps is considered shouting - we aren't deaf y'know!
2) Dont use too many "smilies" it wears out the forum ink quicker and looks terrible.
3) Dont argue in a public forum with another member. If you have an issue with another member for any reason discuss it via pm with a moderator. We will assist where possible but will NOT get involved in personal disputes of any kind. If you wish to find out who is a moderator or admin, click on the "the team" link at the bottom of any of the forum pages. The admin's nicks are displayed in red, mods are purple in the members list.

How can you help us?

We dont want ordinary members acting as "pseudo-moderators", the Admin/Mod team are here for that, but here's how you can help. If you encounter a post that you feel is inappropriate, or breaks forum rules in any way, report it. If you look at the top-right of any post you'll see a row of icons - see the triangular one with a "!" in it? Click it and a report is sent to the mod team to have a look at it. We may, at our discretion modify/delete the offending post (or indeed do nothing). Our decision is final. We do see who reports posts but we never publish their details.

Employees are like mules. Some you stand in front of and coax them along with a carrot. Some you stand behind and kick them in the arse. The key to management is knowing which mules are which!
