Moderation Forum Rules & Expectations for Discussion and Decorum

The purpose of this forum is to provide friendly technical support and discussion concerning the Pine A64 single board computer, in a manner which is conducive to education, collaboration, and friendship

To this end, and to clarify what is expected, here are the ground rules for use of this forum, so that we are all on the same page.

Notice:  With the forum restructure, and in a concerted effort to halt the uber spammers, we have implemented an escalating membership protocol which requires three (3) days elapsed time for full forum membership. The escalation rules are as follows:

1.  New user registers and activates from email, user's group becomes "Registered" 

         (Same as Guest except user now can access UserCP) 

         (Access to some resources may be restricted, like thumb-nails, etc)

2.  After 1 day, user's group will be promoted to "Basic Member" 

         (User can now post 1 reply per day on thread)

3.  After 3 days, user's group will be promoted to "Member" 

         (This is a full member)

The protocol may be tuned according to effectiveness and usability without notice.

Treat others with respect and consideration.

Before posting a thread, check to see if a thread has not already been started that addresses the issue. 

Try not to derail existing threads by taking them off on tangents.

When starting a new thread, be descriptive. “Help me, lol!” is not a good thread title.

Do not post offensive or indecent text, images or links. 

Verbally attacking or harassing other users is not acceptable - there is no need for it. 

Swearing is usually unproductive – please try and avoid using profanity. 

No spamming or advertising, please. 

No trolling.

Moderators reserve the right to edit, move, or delete posts if necessary.

We want this forum to be a great place that people will come to for social interaction as well as technical exchange of ideas, opinions, and viewpoints. Therefore, we must treat each other well and respect the thoughts and perspectives of others.

It is not the purpose of the moderators to control the forums – merely to watch over them. However, sometimes it becomes necessary to take action to curtail trolling, spamming, or unpleasant behaviours that are not conducive to the purposes for which this technical support forum was created.

If an infraction occurs, the moderators will attempt to warn the individual via private message. If the person has turned off their private messages, this will not be possible and a public message may need to be posted to the thread in question, to inform the user of the situation. 

So, the offending person will be asked to correct the situation with a friendly warning in the first instance. Depending on the perceived severity of the infraction, there may or may not be a second, similar warning if the behaviour is repeated.

However, if this is not effective, at the moderator's discretion, the offending post(s) may be edited or possibly even deleted.

If the offensive behaviours are not corrected, or escalate, the offending member may be subject to further disciplinary action in the form of a temporary ban (a week or so depending on the circumstance).

And if, after returning from said temporary ban, the offensive behaviours continue, and all efforts to persuade fail, the member will receive a permanent ban.
