Forum Rules

Post by faran »

The SatUpdates.com forums have grown tremendously over the past years and we thank all of you for being a part of this growing community. In order to keep the forums running well and to prevent problems, please follow these simple rules for the forums here. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact one of the Staff Members.
General Rules

Moderators may, or may not be staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your privileges.

While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters. We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.

We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate SatUpdates.com community standards. The team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.

Sporting rivalry is allowed, but please use moderation. Riotous behaviour or remarks will not be tolerated.

Plagiarism will not be tolerated. If posting others work, give them the credit due.

Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.

Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.

Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, visitor messages, blog comments, picture comments and private message systems to spam other members.

You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
Posting private discussions (conducted through email, private messaging, or IMS) can be done only with permission from the original individual(s).

Please use descriptive titles in your posts. When making threads, please try to make the title as clear as possible. Titles like "Please help", "I have a question" or "What can I do?" are not very helpful.

We have a lot of different sections and sub-sections, when posting please make sure you post your message in the corresponding section of our forum.

If your posting a question, chances are someone before you already posted the same question. To prevent duplicate posts we ask you to please search before you post.

Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts.

Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.

Posts discussing moderator actions are also not allowed.

Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.

Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules, as access to our forums are a privilege and not a right.

Advertising Services and Solicitation

We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. Explicit advertising and solicitating in signatures is also prohibited.

Avatars

Animated Avatars are allowed.
Avatars that may be confused with official staff avatars are not allowed.
Use of the SatUpdates.com logo in avatars is not allowed.

Signatures

Signature may only be posted here and should not exceed the following limits

You can't have both text and images in your signature
For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
Do not use images with large text to bypass the previous item
For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size
Animated images in a signature are not allowed

Links in signatures must follow these guidelines

Linking to a commercial product/service is fine, provided it is not a product or service that competes with a product or service offered by SatUpdates.com and it is not an affiliate program.
Promotional text for a commercial product or service is ok, provided there are no price(s) of product(s) or service(s) listed.
A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial and does not contain product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate SatUpdates.com community standards. The Satupdates.com team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.)
Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.
