    Most people who have been online for any amount of time understand the need to comport themselves with dignity and self-control. In forums, people are encouraged to express opinions, sometimes controversial ones. Occasionally, members of some communities forget their “netiquette” and end up creating some hard feelings. We don’t want that. We provide, therefore, a list of rules that should help keep this communication exchange civil. Don’t make us get tough with you.

    1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums

    These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.

    Please use the Greylock Glassifieds to advertise your services or items for sale/rent.

    Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

    DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers

    Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.

    2. Do not post copyright-infringing material

    Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.

    3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images

    Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.

    4. Do not cross post questions

    Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum in which is most suitable to post your question.

    5. Remain respectful of other members at all times

    All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.

    You are not, however, free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.

    General Forum Questions

    Am I allowed more than one account?

    No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account at the Greylock Glass forums. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums.

    What happens if I break a rule?

    If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent.

    The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.

    What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?

    Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin.

    Where can I find out who is in charge?

    The Forum Moderators are displayed in every Forum.

    Becoming a moderator

    All moderator applicants must be a member for at least 90 days (3 months) and have at least 100 posts.

    You must be active in the individual forums you wish to moderate and regularly create and respond to threads in those forums.

    You must also maintain a working knowledge of the subject matter.

    Please be aware that applying to be a moderator does not guarantee acceptance and that moderators will only be appointed when needed.

    Current moderators and administrators will review applications and decide if the applicant fits the desired post. Administrators have the final say, and we reserve to right to refuse applicants with or without cause.
