The General Posting Rules are:
Flaming/Trolling - Any content that is unlawful, harmful, harassing, threatening, defamatory, vulgar, hateful or distasteful in nature are prohibited. Swearing is prohibited as we have a wide age range. This site employs a profanity filter. Please use appropriate language. Character substitutions, spacing, spelling variations or any form of modified spelling in order to get the word to pass through the filter is absolutely prohibited. Continued threats against a member, moderator or administrator will NOT be tolerated. If you disagree with another member, respond to the subject, not the person as the Internet has made it easy to make personal attacks, you must still exercise courtesy and self-restraint here. Please use the PM (Private Messaging) system to resolve personal issues.
Advertising/Spamming - Any form of advertising or soliciting members or commerical website linking (excluding signatures of current NYC Transit Forums advertisers) whether publicly posted (including signatures) or sent privately (including email or PM) is strictly prohibited. This also includes, but is not limited to advertising with the intent to 'help people', or to provide 'free' products or services (e.g. 'free unlocking' posts), or links containing a referral or affiliate ID. While the forum is free for you to use, it is costly and time consuming for us to run so spam makes it harder to fund the forums. If you wish to advertise please use our contact form first.
Privacy of members - Revealing personal information such as full names, mailing address or other information that is invasive of other's privacy without their express consent is prohibited.
Software piracy - Any content containing registration key/serial numbers, cracks, warez or direct links relating to pirated software that violate copyright laws will automatically be removed as well as requests and offers for copyrighted material.
Adult/Explicit/Objectionable content - As the forum is intended for a wide age group, any content including pictures or links links to pornographic content is strictly prohibited.
Off topic posts - Please keep posts relevant to the particular forum title. It's natural for posts to become off topic but a great disruption of the flow of conversation will be moved to the Off Topic Lounge at our discretion.
Cross/Double posting - Please post to the MOST relevant forum. Double or cross forum posting or other attempts at flooding the forum with posts will be removed.
Bumping - This refers to posting with the deliberate intention to either pad your post count or to keep a thread 'hot' so it appears at the top of the forum. These type of posts can be described as useless information, gibberish, redundant or one-liners. Please try our search tools to see if there has already been a similar discussion first.
Multiple identities - Only one username or account is allowed per forum member. If you have forgotten your log in information, do not create a new account, please contact us.
Languages - All public content, including but not limited to titles, signatures or attachments MUST be in the English language.
Signatures - Maximum size limit for a signature is 600x50 pixels.
More rules - In addition to the rules posted here, members are required to abide to any individual forum rules which may be posted at the top of specific forums in the form of 'stickies' or 'announcements'.
» What if I see something on the forums that violates a rule?
There is a "Report bad post" button on the bottom left side of each post or you can send a PM to a moderator.
» What if I've been banned?
Please keep in mind that as a busy forum we will not further debate your ban. If we suspect that you have signed up with a new username, those will also be banned. However, if you have mistakenly been banned (through no fault of your own) we apologize and will investigate the matter.
» What if I don't understand a rule or not sure if I can post something?
We will not take ignorance of any rules or policies as an excuse for not following them. Please contact us first if you are unsure if the information you wish to post may conflict with our rules or policies.
» Account removal policy:
It is our policy that user accounts will not be deleted. If you have privacy concerns please choose a different username from the one you'd normally use and try not to post anything. Please note that this is done to ensure the continuity of the forums.
