Forum Rules and Guidelines
« on: January 25, 2013, 11:31:17 AM »
The MTPredictor forums are for the benefit of our members:

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 MTPredictor Staff.

Overall Community Attitude

Our purpose is to share, help and support others.

Be respectful of others' opinions.

Allow your fellow members to voice their opinions

DO NOT deliberately start arguments. Debates are great, as long as they remain respectful!

Always try to "give" back to our community. For each time you find help or answers here, try to help someone else out in return. You may find that what goes around comes around...

Give people a little time to respond to your requests, Please be patient.

DO NOT just make a negative statement and leave the person hanging out to dry. Although you may consider yourself to be an "expert" now, try to remember that we were all new and learning once upon a time. Take it easy on your fellow members!

Do NOT make threats or implied threats towards other members -- even if you think it's fun.

General Rules:

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.

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

Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.

MTPredictor shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.

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

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

While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant advertisements.

We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.

We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules.

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.

You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.

Advertising Services

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

Links in Signatures

Linking to a commercial product/service is fine, provided it is not a product or service that you are an employee and or owner of.

Private Message and Email Abuse Policy

DO NOT use the MTPredictor bulletin boards as a basis for spamming or scamming our members.

We take PM/email abuse very seriously, and it will result in the immediate removal of your membership and ban of your IP address, without warning

Our SPAM Policy

Please make sure that you are posting for the good of the community, not just for the sake of self-promotion

Please refrain from posting affiliate links and press releases in our forums.

Surveys are not allowed, unless you have been given permission in advance from a Site Admin

Do NOT use the MTPredictor community for the purpose of 'spam' or excessive advertisements! This includes forum posts, private messages, or emails to other members

Our moderators reserve the right to edit or delete any posts they consider to be 'spam'

If we find that you are spamming our community, you will be warned by a Moderator or Site Admin, and it may lead to the deletion of your posts and/or the removal of your account

Forum Abuse Policy:
MTPredictor reserves the right to ban users without notice for violation of any of the rules...

Thanks and I hope you enjoy our Forum  :)
