Forum Guidelines and other useful Forum Information

Someone asked about the forum guidelines on another thread so I thought it would be worthwhile to post a link to the Forum Guidelines as well as to other useful Forum Information.

One thing I have noticed recently is that some users are regularly posting off-topic in threads that other folks have started. This falls under the forum guideline of “Keeping On Topic”.

While everyone posts off topic sometimes – that’s to be expected in an internet forum where conversations evolve and flow – the issue arises when this becomes pervasive and disruptive. This is particularly concerning if the thread is on a serious topic where the thread’s Original Poster (OP) is asking for specific advice or is in distress.

It is also quite disruptive if folks get into a spat and de-rail an entire thread in the process. My advice is to ignore another forum member if you find them annoying rather than engaging in a disruptive interaction.

Another important forum guideline to keep in mind is “Suggestion, Not Criticism”.

Here is a link to the full Forum Guidelines:

Additionally, here is a link to the Forum FAQ (which also has additional useful information on how to have a positive experience on the forum)

Finally, here is a link to the current list of Forum Staff, including the system administrator and moderators:
