II.) GENERAL FORUM POSTING RULES:
1. The WikiLeaks Forum is a place for open discussions and the free flow of information. While we want to make sure that every member can speak his mind without fear we have to point out that this Forum is not a place for
a.) Recruiting people for your own projects
b.) Posting Spam (including links to your own private sites beside when it's about the topic you're discussing on)
c.) posting offensive texts, pictures or videos
d.) posting content under foreign copyright.
e.) Posting religious propaganda
f.) Promoting racial hatred
g.) Posting any form of political propaganda.
h.) Promoting drugs,warez hacking or illegal software.
2.) Please always keep in mind that you're talking to other human beings. Thus we do not tolerate flame wars, threats or insults.
3.) The Moderator/Adminteam reserves the right to edit, move, remove or moderate any post at any time. You have the possibility to report offensive posts to a Moderator by clicking on "Report to moderator". We ask you to not act as a "back seat moderator". You can also use the chatterbox or the PM function to contact Moderators and Admins.
4.) The above also apply to private messaging. If you have the feeling, that another member is harassing you in private messages, please contact the Moderator Team.
5.) Please do not use your Signature as an advertisement board. One link is allowed in your signature. Linking a commercial website or a "click for points" game is not allowed.
6.) Online communication differs a lot from the Face-to-Face communication. Keep that in mind when answering in an ironic or sarcasm way. The other person might not detect it and take it personal.
7.) PLEASE DO NOT USE ALL CAPS. It's considered as YELLING and many people take it as very impolite.
8.) Only ONE ACCOUNT is allowed per person. Secondary accounts will be removed without notice. This board has many members so there's no need for soliloquy :)
9.) Please do not post duplicate threads. If you can't find a thread you were answering in or opening, use the "Last posts by member" on your profile.
10.) Please do not posts containing only a link or a video. Describe why you post it or what is behind the link. Most people do not want to click on random links.
11.) Absolutely no warez. Linking or giving information about any site that distributes illegal software, warez, pornography seeking help to circumvent any copyright laws, or encouraging software or media piracy is grounds for an immediate ban
12.)This is an English speaking forum, please type your post in English. If you don't speak English, please check our International Forums.
13.) Advertising is not allowed on the forum. Commercial links in signature or embeded in posts will be removed without prior warning and the account banned.
13.) You agree that your posts will be made public and remain the property of www.wikileaks-forum.com. We are not obliged to remove your posts.
III.) GENERAL CHAT RULES:
Since the chatbox is the first thing new and old members see, we ask you to stick to the following rules.
1.) No flame wars are allowed in the chatterbox. Every member has his or her free own opinion and is allowed to have.
2.) Don't post offensive or harassing texts. Please be respectful to the viewpoints and opinions of other members.
3.) Please don't flood the chatterbox. If you have an important statement or want to open a deep discussion open a new thread :) The chatterbox is way too fast and many interesting topics might just be left out because of that.
4.) DON'T USE ALL CAPS. It's considered as YELLING and most people regard it as impolite.
5.) Don't post commercial links in the chatterbox. If you post a link, please explain why or what is on the linked site. We recommend that members don't click unknown links for their own safety.
6.) Don't ask personal questions to other members (e.g. "Where are you from?"). IF you want to ask such things, please respect that other members might not answer.
7.) Since this Forum is international we ask you to use English in the chat box so every member can understand you.
8.) Please respect the intervention by Admins and Moderators. They want to make sure that every member can use the chat box and is welcome there. So if a member of the staff asks you to e.g. be polite, please follow that instruction.
