Rules

Welcome to PCHHQ forum. To try to make your stay nice, friendly, and constructive as possible, please take your time to read through this post. This post will help you understand our rules our community for the sake of new members ;) These rules can be changed with or without notice, however we will normally we announce changes via site announcement in the forums.

1) Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question may have already been answered.

2) Respect PCHHQ staff and its members: Look around and get to know the forum, and introduce yourself here http://www.pchelphq....oduce-yourself/ before you post.

3) Keep focus: Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved, locked or simply be deleted. If you have another topic, feel free to make another post.

4) Be nice to each other and respect the moderators. Profanity and insults will not be tolerated. If you have a problem with a member turn to the respective moderator. If the moderator can't help you send a private message to a PCHHQ administrator.

5) Do not spam. No blatant advertising. Your post will be removed instantly and may result in a ban.

6) No warez, cracks, serials, or illegally obtained copyrighted content! Links to content of a questionable nature, asking for, offering, or asking for help/helping to process such content in any way or form is not tolerated.

7) Keep the size of personal images down.

8) No cross posting. Post your message once to the appropriate forum.

9) Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention. !!!!!!! posts will be more likely ignored.

10) Do not send questions pertaining to topics of discussion on this board via personal messages or email to Moderators or Administrators, they will be ignored.

11) Don't post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain matter then don't post. The number of posts on this board has no direct relation to the experience of a member.

12) How NOT to post on this forum:
5 minutes after your initial post you reply to your own post writing something like "Why is nobody helping me? I'm sure you know the answer". Once somebody replies to your thread but doesn't give you exactly the answer you've been expecting you insult them.
Do not ask "what's best" because this question cannot be answered objectively. Each and everyone has their own view about what's best in a certain area. The best is what works best for you!

13) The official language of the site is English. We may add translations later, however we cannot support another language at this time. If you speak another language and want to port the site over, send an Administrator a private message :P

14) Multiple registrations are not allowed and are grounds for immediate account deletion.

15) Political discussion not directly related to Computer related issues are not allowed, as is any discussion on religion or religious matters of any sort.

16) Instructions by the Administrators or Staff are to be followed. Flaming an Administrator or Staff member will probably result with a ban.

17) Don't drink and drive, this may result in serious injury or death. :P

18) Don't drink and drive your PC, it may result in weird photo on the net or bad conversations.

19) Do not copy content off the site and distribute on other websites without approval by an Administrator or author of the content.

If you don't follow these rules, you'll have to face an instant ban and will no longer have access to PCHHQ or its resources.

Last but not least, stick to the rules and you will have a great experience and learn a lot along the way! We hope you will enjoy PCHHQ!
