House Rules
More help is available in our Forums Help and Support

Welcome to Cre8asiteforums

We’re pleased that you have joined, or are considering joining us.

To maintain civility and order in our Forums, we have certain “House Rules.”

Remember, you are a guest here, and as such, we expect you to conduct yourself within the guidelines of the rules outlined below.

Posting Rules

Members will conduct themselves in a civilized manner at all times. We will not tolerate personal attacks against any Members or Moderators or their businesses. You may not:

  • post or link to material that is illegal, libelous, harmful, threatening, harassing, abusive, violent, racially or sexually offensive, defamatory or objectionable in a reasonable person’s view.
  • impersonate another Member, Forum Moderator or anyone else.
  • attempt to gain access to or use another Member or Moderator’s password.
  • cut and paste, mix, combine or mirror any posts for the purposes of promoting or demoting any product or service for inclusion on external websites.
  • request to have your posts removed “en masse.”
  • post requests for link exchanges, buy/sell links or domains from other members.
  • Use either Forum Posts or Private Messages for advertising or link requests. This includes all ‘classified ads’ or promotions, surveys/polls, jobs or help wanted or seeking, and contests – No Exceptions! However, short promotional messages are permitted in your signature lines. As you participate in the forums and build a positive reputation, this may convince people to visit your site or your promotion.
  • post articles from your’s or other websites in their entirety. Links to and quotes from on-topic articles are acceptable, provided 1) the source is cited and credited appropriately and 2) it does not violate copyright claims and 3) doesn’t appear to be a “link drop” for your own promotional purposes.
  • challenge the authority of any Moderator.
  • send unsolicited PM’s to Moderators or Administrators. We do not give private consultations
  • We strongly suggest that you use the SpellChecker before posting. Good online communication starts with understandable writing. We’re a global community with people who speak many languages. Try to remain professional when helping someone or asking for help. We all have grumpy days. When in doubt about how a post might go over, let it sit for awhile and come back later.
  • post your email address. We will remove it to prevent it from being discovered by automated email harvesters who wish to send you spam. We will remove your phone number if you post it.
