ARCHSOCIETY Forum Rules 1.Clarity of English : Everyone has to write in clear English. No Internet shorthand is allowed. Such as: never write thnx, plz, neway etc. always write thanks, please, anyway in it's full form. Obviously write 'you' 'are' 'and' not like u, r, n. We should remember we are not writing sms here and discussion forum is not a chatbox. Other languages are allowed only in the language specific forums (like Bangla is allowed in Bangla Adda Ghor forum). Any language is allowed in the Realtime Chatbox. Except these places any other languages are not allowed anywhere in archsociety. (Of course, different language speaking members can request for their own 'language specific forum'. It will require only 5 requests from the members to open a forum like 'Arabic Forum' or 'Urdu Forum' etc.) Penalty for breaking this rule: User will be warned maximum three(3) times. If he/she continues breaking the rule he/she will be banned from this site. 2. Spamming: Don't post any meaningless or stupid writings or which doesn't go with the continuing discussion and the aim of a forum. Otherwise those posts will be treated as spam, and will be instantly deleted. Penalty for breaking this rule: User will be warned PM only once. If he/she continues breaking this rule he/she will be banned from the site. ARCHSOCIETY doesn't mercy for spamming anyway. 3.Writing in correct forum: Write specific post in specific forum. There are several forums to serve you. Find out which forum matches your topic, and then post it there. Penalty for breaking this rule: Topic will be moved to specific forum/ may be deleted. And the user will be warned. 4.About copyright issue: Archsociety believes in open-source knowledge sharing. Still there are some obvious restrictions on direct publishing images or texts from copyrighted books or websites in this forum. Everyone MUST have to write the name of the source of the content. In case of contents (image or text) from books: mention the name of the book and the publisher. In case of images or texts from other websites: When you are using an image from other website using direct hot-link (using bbcode or html) then it is not mandatory to mention the name of the source website. But when you are uploading an image or writing texts from other website everyone must have to mention the name of the source website. Penalty for breaking this rule: User will be warned inside the suspicious thread. If he/she doesn’t confirm about the actual source of the content within 5 days, the post (or may be the entire thread) will be deleted. And the user may be banned from the forum after a single warning. Edited Sat Jan 10 2009, 03:51pm

ARCHSOCIETY Code of Ethics
1.Personal Attacks : Users will not personally attack any other members in the forum by any offensive language or any other media. It is recommended to remain strict to the issue of a thread in the forum. Any kind of personal query should go through PM to the specific user.
Admin will not go to solve any personal quarrels between users. Admin or the moderators can edit the posts with offensive personal talks.
Quarrelling users can request admin by PM to take actions against other users. Rest of the decisions will be merely of the admin or moderators. No arguments will be entertained.

2.Use of Forum VS PM : Users should be careful about what to write in forum and what should go to PM. Suppose no user should write something like 'hey moderator why did you delete/edit my post' in the forum. This type of queries to the admin should go through direct PM to the admin or to moderator, should not appear in the forum.
And obviously merely personal talks also shouldn't appear in the forum, use PM for that purpose.
