Forum Rules

1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums

These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.
Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

Please only exchange contact details through the moderator.

 

2. Do not post copyright-infringing material

 

Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.

 

3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images

 

Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.
 

4. Do not cross post questions

 

Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.

5. Do not PM users asking for help

 

Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.

 

6. Remain respectful of other members at all times

 

All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.

However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.

 

 

General Posting Guidelines

 

We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.

1. Please use SEARCH first!

 

There is quite a big chance that, as time goes on, your questions will have already been answered. 

 

2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use “stupid” topic names

 

PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT.  (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and

only annoy people).

 

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST:

Help me,  Hello,  Very urgent, I’m self-isolating and I need help NOW!

 

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

 

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

 

“Is there someone in W4 who could pick up some shopping for me, please”
or
“Is there someone who could drop in to check on my neighbour, please”

 

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favour

 

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with and don’t be rude.

 

General Forum Questions

Am I allowed more than one account?

No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account at Isomeet forums. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums.

 

What happens if I break a rule?

If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. I’m generally pretty easy going, so it will usually be just awarning.

 

The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.

 

What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?

Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin.

 

Where can I find out who is in charge?

I’m in charge. I’m Brad. Hello. You can contact me at actoruk@gmail.com.
