In an effort to make IGOTASTi.COM more enjoyable for our members, we have adopted the following simple posting guidelines. We?d prefer not to moderate a single post, but not all of our members feel that way. We?re trying our best to find a happy medium but as this forum grows many situations will need to be handled with care. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding in creating an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone.

1. Selling or direct solicitation of ANYTHING in the forums or by PM is not allowed and will result in the deletion of the post. You may be notified by the forum staff anytime these actions need to be taken. Repeat offenders will lose their posting privileges.

2. Private party ads are acceptable as long as they are posted in the Classifieds forum section. If your business has aproduct or service that you feel can benefit our community, contact us BEFORE you post!

3. Spamming/advertising in the general forums is not tolerated. Again, if you have a product or service that would be of interest to our members please contact us to learn how you can join our team and help support our community. We offer low-cost packages that can be of great benefit to you and your company.

4. Advertising your business or product in signatures or avatars is not allowed. Only current Supporting Vendors listed on the site may be included or mentioned in a signature. Any violations will be removed and repeat offenders will lose posting privileges.

5. A promotion of competing sites and/or any other forums is not allowed. Repeatedly referring to other related sites is considered SPAM and will not be allowed. Users are not allowed to post links to other forums in signatures, posts or PM's in effort to generate traffic to another site. This will be up to the discretion of the Admins and Moderator Staff, and you may be notified if action needs to be taken.

6. Cross posting is not allowed and can result in the deletion of one or both posts. Cross posting is defined as posting the same information in two or more separate forums. We understand that some topics might fit into more than one forum. Please try to pick the best one and stick with it. PLEASE try to put topics in the correct forums! Supporting Vendors, are allowed to make "double post" advertising their products and/or deals outside of their own forum section WHEN an open forum section's topic pertains to their products and/or deals. Regular double posting rules apply to all other posts that are NOT business related.

7. Profanity is not tolerated in thread titles. Try to be as descriptive as possible when creating new threads. Getting the help you're looking for is as simple as generating an informative thread title. Titling your thread, "hey" or "question" will not get the views or response that you're looking for.

8. Respect other members. Do not flame, badger, disrespect or taunt anyone on the forum. This also goes for our Supporting Vendors as well. If we feel a thread is getting out of hand we will close it or delete it. You can, and will be banned if you continue this type of behavior. The STi community is an awesome group of people who generally want to learn, develop and expand, so we don't expect this will be a problem.

9. Adult type content IS allowed in the OFF TOPIC forum ONLY! Please be courteous of other members and be sure to include a stern warning when posting such content. Please use links to adult content and use "NWS" or "NSFW" in the thread title when doing so. Again, images that are not work safe need to be in a link format. Using the IGOTASTi.COM forum server and attachment feature for adult content is strictly forbidden and will be removed.

10. Supporting Vendors are allowed to post in open forum sections if the post is on-topic or in reply to a members question or issue. A Supporting Vendor is not allowed to post in another Supporting Vendors forum section or thread. Vendors are not allowed to use other vendors names in their threads. Please use common courtesy at all times and remain as professional as possible. Otherwise, we reserve the right to remove your posts, accusations and or advertising altogether.

Administrators and Moderators have the final word. If you have a problem or a complaint please direct it to them instead of posting in the public forum. We will quickly take the appropriate actions to resolve the issue in a private and discreet manner.

Most of all....Have fun and enjoy the forum!
