11: No Spamming:

Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are Spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count.

  1. Please make sure that you are posting for the good of the community, not just for the sake of self-promotion.
  2. Please refrain from posting affiliate links and press releases in our forums.
  3. Surveys are not allowed, unless you have been given permission in advance from a Site Admin.
  4. Do NOT use the The Security Installer community for the purpose of 'spam' or excessive advertisements! This includes forum posts, private messages, or emails to other community members.

Our moderators reserve the right to edit or delete any posts they consider to be 'spam'.
If we find that you are spamming our community, you will be warned by a Moderator or Site Admin, and it may lead to the deletion of your posts and/or the removal of your community membership.


12: Other unacceptable behaviour:

  1. DO NOT deliberately start arguments. Debates are great, as long as they remain respectful!
  2. DO NOT just make a negative statement and leave the person hanging out to dry. Although you may consider yourself to be an "expert" now, try to remember that we were all new and learning once upon a time. Take it easy on your fellow members!
  3. Do NOT make threats or implied threats towards other members.
  4. Do NOT post security control equipment defaulting information. Your post will be removed.
  5. Do NOT post comments questioning the community rules, or regarding the way in which this site is moderated. If you have a query ask a moderator or admin.

  7. The Fire And Security Installer believes in integrity and respects what other forums have to offer. Because we realize members of The Security Installer may also be members of other forums, do not try to degrade or discredit other forums, their administrators and moderators, or their members. This includes slander and other offensive comments.

It is our intention to ensure our forum stays a friendly, interesting place to visit and I expect those who are not comfortable with our rules to leave peacefully and waste there time elsewhere.
