Forum Rules


IPB Helpers Support Forums: We have an expansive team ready at hand to help with all problems and queries you may have with Invision Power Board. Please remember that all our staff members are volunteer workers. Abusive or outstanding behavior reaching or exceeding an unacceptable degree to a staff member will not be tolerated, please remain as calm as possible while we help you through your problem. Please remember to include the following information when using our support services: - A link to the forum experiencing the error. - A copy of the exact error you are receiving. - The host you are using, Unix/Windows and any other host information you can provide. - Browser information. - Try and make your topic as descriptive as possible using the best English possible so we can understand and swiftly and efficiently help you. Our Community Forums: We have implemented the following guide for using our community forums. This guide is designed to strike a balance between the main goal of our forums, providing support, and keeping the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of our community. We require all technical support questions are issued through the services we provide. Please do not send a private message or email to a staff member requesting technical help. Instead, please use our support forums for asking technical support questions. We require all posts to be positive, constructive, and on topic. We may delete individual posts that could ruin a good topic thread. We reserve the right to remove any topics we deem inappropriate or disruptive to our community. Please note that, from time to time, topics may be removed for being inappropriate even though your individual post in that topic may have been perfectly fine. Please do not feel this reflects badly on you. Having fun is good, we like fun. There are several general forums for non-IPB related topics. Please keep it positive and polite. We do not censor opinions or ideas on our forums but we do take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement. You may not make personal attacks on other users or staff members either in public forums or private messages. You may not use profanity. It is unprofessional and offensive and will not be tolerated. We have word filters in place for the most vulgar terms. Circumventing those word filters will result in punitive action. We reserve the right to ban any member who violates our guidelines or disrupts our community. We will be fair and provide warning in most cases. If you have an issue concerning our services, policies, or staff, please use a personal contact method such as a private message or email to a staff member. All moderators, administrators, and support staff are highlighted in the active members list. We take serious complaints to heart and will do our best to address them. IPBH Golden Rules: There will be no use of profanity. There will be no racial, ethnic, gender based insults or any other personal discriminations. There will be no posts meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory. Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible. Pornography, warez, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form. All posts are property of the poster. This forum and all web sites owned in conjunction with this forum have the right to request alteration or deletion of any offensive post. Posts may be deleted for any reasons the forum administrators deem reasonable. Pictures may be posted as long as they are not explicive or offensive. If you plan to post more than one image, or the topic is based on graphics, please link the images rather than screening. Signatures may contain images, but may not be any larger than 300x100; 468x60 banners are also permitted (within reason). If your signature is larger than the allotted size given or deemed unacceptable by staff, you will be requested by a moderator to resize or change your image. Please also try and keep text signatures under 8 lines. Failing to comply with a moderator's request will result in the removal of your signature. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other topics and see where your topic should go. If your topic is placed in the wrong forum, it will be moved by a moderator. If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines then please contact a moderator either via PM or the 'report post to moderator' feature; please do not respond publicly to the member - a member of staff will do what is required upon contact. Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another forum) will be sent a PM warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions. Any impersonation of a user from these forums, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning. Violation of any of these rules will result in consequences determined on a case-by-case basis. Thank you for choosing IPB Helpers and we hope you enjoy your stay.
