Title: General Forum Etiquette -- PLEASE READ
Post by: Michael M. on June 18, 2007, 05:29:48 PM
The policy here is very simple - courtesy and common sense.

This is a "Community", not the Wild West. And, like the legendary "Cheers Bar" that some of our members often refer to, if a patron becomes unruly, then s/he is either asked to leave or will be escorted out.

The forums are here for your enjoyment and as a way for you to interact with other X10 users such as yourself to share, learn and find answers. Your questions are answered by unpaid forum members (other X10 users, just like you, who, through trial-and-error and/or reading-and-learning from the efforts of others, have somewhat mastered the 'skill' of getting technology that has evolved ~30 years ago to co-exist with gadgets that appeared - and continue to appear - years and years afterwards).  So, it would be in your best interest to be polite and courteous to them if you expect them to help you.

For those of you that need something more "Black-and-White":

If you have previously been banned, have decided to reform and would now like to re-join the "Community" as a "polite and courteous" member, please send an E-Mail explaining this in detail to mmallari at [b][color=Blue]michaelm@x10.com[/color][/b].

NOTICE: "All posts to the X10 Community Forums become the property of X10 and may be moved, edited, and/or deleted as seen fit by X10 or an appointed agent representing X10".

Since X10 has now appointed a non employee to do administrator stuff, abusers will be dealt with much swifter!
Spammers Are not tolerated here, want to Advertise\sell something go to e-bay!
Violators of forum rules and or the above mentioned (General Forum Etiquette) will be dealt with swiftly!
This is a fun place full of valueable info with great members!
If you want to feel like a member of the Cheers Gang it is up to you!
Everyone civil is welcome  >!

Those maintaining the forum (Expert Advisors & Community Organizers) have decided!
Obvious Spammers get banned fully first offence!
Other violators will see a 1,2,3 strike your out!

Note: If you have been warned for a violation or banned previously consider that a free warning (not strike 1)!
Also ignoring Community Organizers PMs about a concern with one of your posts may lead to strike one! ( the PM is a good faith gesture and isn't required)
The Community has a good set of Bouncers, please don't put them to work! ;)

Update: For banned user which choose to return to actively contributing to the community please note!
After strike 2 you will also have limited forum privileges for a probation period. (Exactly what privileges you'll lose and for how long will be decided by the COs and EAs!)

Over the past year this forum has been hit hard with spammers and spam bots.
The COs and EAs have fought hard to keep this under control!

This forum is not alone, many forums have banned together to help fight spam.
In doing so Many rather large data base have been developed.

As a Warning to anyone thinking they'll get back at X10:
Spammers will not be tolerated.
Anyone caught spamming this forum will not only be banned but their User name, Email & IPs will be added to several spam data bases used around the globe.

With this done it will prevent you from registering on any forum capable of accessing these data bases during login.
Although X10 hosts this forum, it is You the members that make it work!
Let's keep it enjoyable to visit!
