Exclamation Forum Rules: MUST be read by all members of this forum

Dear AKB forum members, I would like to introduce you the rules of our forum and I strongly recommend you to read, understand and try to follow these rules. Members who repeatedly break rules will be warned either public or private way and in some cases may even be banned from forum. Here we go.

</font><ul type="square"><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Respect other's time and bandwidth. Some people pay for their Internet
access by minute, and some by the amount of space that their transactions
use. For the sake of everyone, keep your interactions brief, and to the
point. It saves us all in the long run.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">DO NOT POST IN ALL CAPS. It's the equivalent of shouting. This is a general
rule of netiquette on the internet.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Do not make off-topic posts in the midst of a thread. If you have an idea you
want discussed that does not immediately apply to the current thread, start a
new thread. If you're wondering when your class will meet next, or want to talk
about some program you saw on TV, use the private messaging system. If
someone else has posted something off-topic, do not point that out in the forum,
which only exacerbates the problem. Politely notify them through private
messaging or email instead.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Do not attack people personally. On the net, this is called "flaming." Posts
should advance the discussion and, while it's OK for the discussion to get heated,
the heat should be directed towards the issues, not towards other members.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Contribute, don't reiterate. A post that says "I agree" is useless. It's OK to
agree with a poster, but rather than simply agreeing, extend what they have to
say by locating other examples or elaborating on the point.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Quote messages if you want to reply to them specifically (see the forum handouts
for how to use the quote feature). However, when quoting, edit the quoted
material to make it clear what you're replying to and to make your own post as
brief and to the point as possible.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Don't Spam. The term Spam is used to refer to two things: sending an email
(usually of a commercial nature) to a large number of addresses, and
crossposting a message to a large number of newsgroups, especially when it
is not on-topic (Those of you who actually know the origin of this term,
feel free to write c_b and communally *snicker*).
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Remember That The Internet is Almost Worldwide. Don't assume that people
you meet are from your country and know the things you speak of. Be ready
and willing to explain...
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Respect Others and Their Opinions. Perhaps the best thing about the
Internet is meeting people from all walks of life. With meeting new people
comes differing opinions. Respect everyone's right to their own opinions,
even if you disagree.
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Use a descriptive subject line for your messages. Many programs for
reading mail and news display only the subject line of incoming messages,
so provide a clear headline to signal what you're going to say. It's nice
to use a question mark if you are asking for rather than providing
information, e.g. Free Internet access in Utah?
</font></li><li><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Signal sarcastic and humorous comments with a "smiley" symbol.
</font></li></ul><font size="2" face="MS Sans Serif, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">If you have any questions or comments do not hesitate to contact me personally I'll try to answer.
