City Ordinances (just rules and regulations)
Although the administrators and moderators of Community for Webmasters & Developers will attempt to keep all objectionable material off this site, it is impossible for us to review everything that's posted. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of Community for Webmasters & Developers, nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of vBulletin), will be held responsible for the content of any message.
This forum is a great place to post questions and answers, or simply have a productive discussion about web development. We will delete anything we find inappropriate, but such posts are very uncommon. Please follow these guidelines when posting:
- Avoid personal insults or flames
- These rarely occur, although there have been some borderline cases. Historically, members have been very helpful and friendly to each other. To avoid any problems, try to be aware of how you're coming across. If you're using sarcasm or making a joke, make that clear so other members won't take it the wrong way. The bottom line: try to be polite.
- Abstain from spam or blatant advertising
- Please don't post an advertisement. Members are allowed a two-line signature† in which commercial URLs are permissible. They may also recommend sites (their own included), but only if this helps answer the question.
- Those that join merely to advertise their products, especially if those products have no bearing on the subject of Web Development, will be ejected from the system.
- Respect copyrights and do not post illegal material
- If you post copyrighted material (code, editorial content, graphics, etc), attribute the source. We reserve the right to disclose any information about a member to the proper authorities in the case of copyright infringement or any other illegal activity.
- Refrain from cross-posting
- Cross-posting is placing the same (or nearly the same) message in more than one forum. Please choose the forum most appropriate and post your message there.
- Hold back from flooding
- "Flooding" is posting similar questions in different threads in a short period of time.
- DO NOT POST IN ALL CAPS OR ALL BOLD TYPE
- Text in all capital letters or bold-face type is commonly considered yelling on public forums.
- Don't ask others to do your homework
- Due to ethical concerns, posts requesting help with a school assignment should not be given a direct solution. Members may offer assistance by "leading you in the right direction," provided you have already put forth some effort. Post your code or a URL so members can guide you along.
- Resist making demands of other members
- Everyone answering questions in this forum is donating his/her time to help people without compensation. Demanding help within a certain time frame or insisting that code be written for you is unacceptable. The community will try to help you, but it is not responsible for deadlines that are not met, projects that are not finished, non-working code, or any other problems that may occur, whether your question was answered or not.
- Avoid political, religious, and other potentially explosive topics
- This forum is meant to be a place for friendly conversation. In order to keep it that way, we must place a ban on certain topics. We are very reluctant to limit a free and open exchange of views, but cannot allow heated discussions that could lead to a hostile environment.
- Read the forum FAQ before posting
By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
The owners of Community for Webmasters & Developers reserve the right to remove, edit, move, or close any content item for any reason.
†Due to variations in monitor size and screen resolution, this restriction is open to interpretation. However, members are expected to be considerate of others by conforming to the spirit of the rule. For example, the use of enlarged font-sizes is strongly discouraged. If a signature is found to be excessive, an administrator will ask the member to revise it.
