Posting Messages

  • Before you post : A search should be done to see if your questions have not been already posted. You can use the search function by following this link.
    Also check if you are posting in the right forum. Posting Math problems in the Chemistry Forum will not help you get an answer.
    You have a FAQ section where you can find answers for general questions about forum management:
    Frequently Asked Questions

  • Topic titles : When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to your problem/question. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry" are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided. Why do we ask you to use explicit titles in your topics ?
    Because the forum's search engine bases it's search results on keywords found in topic titles

    When you do a search, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?

    Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem/question. Doing this makes the searches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question

  • Description of you problem/question : When you ask a question, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe your problem. The more info you give, the better we can answer you. Screenshots can also help depending on the problem. If you don't know how to take a screenshot you should read this tutorial

  • Language on this forum : When you write in English, SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided.

  • Flood and off-topic : Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single smiley must be avoided.
    You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response.

  • Spamming : Spamming is not tolerated, even by PM.

  • Advertising : It is also forbidden to post advertising for money-related stuff, many of our members are under 18.


  • Defamatory, racist, hateful, uncivil, illegal or insulting content must be avoided on this forum. You must respect the fact that people may have a different opinion than you. If you are in conflict with another member, please use PMs for that, this forum is not an arena!

  • Please, be patient. It's useless to repost your topic every 2 minutes (see the point "Flood and Off-topic"). Every member of this forum has a private life, so they can't always respond immediately.

  • You must respect the moderators and administrators. They all work voluntarily on this forum and they are human, not machines!

  • If you received advertising, uncivil content or insults by PM, you must send the whole message and a screenshot of that message to a moderator or administrator via PM. Posting it in a topic is useless and will only cause conflicts between you and the one who sent you the PM

  • If you don't find your topic, it may have been moved to a more appropriate place. If you are not sure how to find it, click on the link named "View your Topics" at the top of the homepage.

  • Do not moderate other members. Moderating is reserved for moderators only.

Avatar and profile

  • Avatar dimensions : Your avatar's width must not exceed 150 pixels and it's height must not exceed 200 pixels. These limits are here to avoid scrolling for people who have a low screen resolution. You must also respect the limit of storage space which is set at 300 KB. There are still people who have a low-speed connection, and big pictures take time to load for them

  • Your avatar is not an advertising banner, so avatars with your forum URL or links to any other sites must be avoided

  • Prurient oriented, vulgar, gore and any other type avatars that are considered to be inappropriate must be avoided

  • Your "Language", "Location" and "Hobbies" fields are not an advertising space, so links must be avoided.

Possible Punishment

  • If your avatar doesn't respect the rules and you ignore the moderator's request to have it changed, the Administrator will forbid you from displaying an Avatar

  • Advertising for money-related stuff = Immediate ban

  • Ignoring the moderators warnings and continuing to not respect the rules and insulting people will result in a ban from this forum

  • Bans are temporary, but depending on the severity of the offense a permanent ban may also be issued

If you have any questions about one of the forum rules, please PM a moderator to ask your question

We thank you for your comprehension and for respecting these rules.
