Default Techwatch Rules

8 Simple Rules: PLEASE READ

1. Keep it legal: Don't post keys, firmware, or similar to the forums;

2. Don't link to illegal content on other sites on the public forums

3. Don't PM staff demanding help - post questions to the forums

4. Read the forums before posting - chances are the question has already been asked - and answered

5. Post in the right forums - eg, don't post cable issues in the satellite section

6. Keep it civil - abusive attitude won't be tolerated

7. No post clocking - don't make junk posts just to get your post count up. Instead of posting "thanks" use the [Thanks] button

8. No advertising - new members can't post links, spam is removed, and websites that spam Techwatch are censored forever


Three breaches and there's an automatic ban.


Also, do consider making a donation to staff if they help you - the donate button is at the top right of the forums.

For gawd sake get that one right - you wouldnt believe the number of cable related posts that end up in the sat forum!

Mistakes happen - we have all posted something in the wrong section, but a lot of the time it just suggests that the cable users on the site are too thick to use the forum properly - when was the last time you saw a sat post in the cable forum?

We are still cleaning up from last weeks little fiasco with posts put here there and everywhere, although a few did make it to the right section

Just a thought - can the rules be fixed as an Announcement at the top of each section as a way to make them more prominent?

Yes it is possible to do that, but personally I think it would be excessive.
