EASA Forum Rules:
Trolling and Language
It is our vision that this community is a friendly community for any and every EASA member to benifit from. Trolling will be clamped down on—no exceptions. What is trolling? Wikipedia defines a troll as "someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
There is a difference between controversial chatter and trolling. The former has a purpose and the latter does not. Even then, we do not want to see any racial discussions and the like. You are the the judge of what is appropriate.
Avoid using bad language. Repeat offences will result in a forum ban.
Under no circumstances will we allow attacks targeted at members of this forum. If you're in a debate you should think of better ways to win an argument.
Keep them to the Suggestions, Comments and Complaints forum. However, if your complaint is about a particular post, use the Report button. We value your input as a member.
Obviously, a spam bot is not going to read this, but there is human spam too. If you want to self-promote your website, put it in your forum signature. However, we will not allow you to add any links to shady deals, such as "Get a free iPod!". Non-compliance will result in a warning, or in severe cases, a ban. If you are unsure of whether what you want to advertise is allowed, or your means of doing so, drop me a message.
- Don't post the same thread in different forums
- Avoid bumping threads, especially if you were the last poster
- Try to read the forum names so you post your thread in the right one
- Absolutely no multiple accounts—we will find out and a ban will be issued. If you have lost your account details, contact me via the main website
- Keep your signatures sensible.
- Also look for rules threads in the individual forums; some forums have their own rules in addition to these, and some do not
