Posting Guidelines
We are here to help you get started. The following are general guidelines to help you get started:

1. Be sure to check the first search:

There are certain chances that the matter you were searching for has already been addressed on the forum; that is where you should first try looking. It's simple to search; you must just use the search function.

2. Be aware of topics names:
Please include complete subject titles in your post. Give a brief description of your problem in the subject area. Avoid using attention-getting subjects, nobody pays attention to them.
Examples to avoid: Help me; Hello; Urgent, I have a question.

General Forum Questions
Am I able to create more than one account myself?
We do not allow or encourage people to have more than one primary account. We prohibit the creation of more than one login if you have violated the rules by creating multiple accounts. Once you have a long-term ban on the forum, your login credentials are not accepted, and you abstain from creating new accounts.

What would happen if I broke a rule?
Either a warning or a permanent ban will be issued if you break a rule. Administrators and moderators may also edit, delete, move, or close any thread or post as they please, without prior warning.

What happens when I consider a post that contravenes a rule?
Please report the thread/post to the admin, moderators, or administrators.
