Please Do:

Be polite, courteous and respectful. We are all human beings with our own thoughts and opinions. It’s OK to disagree with another member, but please be civilized and respectful in doing so.

Use the search feature before posting. 
If there’s already a thread about your subject, you might find your answer there. You can also post in that same thread so the relevant information can be found in one convenient location.

Post in the appropriate forum category. 
We’ve done our best to organize DG Gabber into categories and topics that are easy to navigate. Please help us out by finding the category that is related to your post, and starting your thread in that sub-forum.

Use an appropriate title for your thread. 
You’ll get more attention and better responses.

For example: A bad topic would be “I have a question“. A good topic would be “Question about Heritage Fest“.

Listen to site Administrators and Moderators.
 Our Admins and Mods are here to help, and to keep things positive. You can identify an Admin/Mod by the Admin or Moderator badge in their avatar.

Please Do Not:

Flame or personally attack other members. 
There is a fine line between disagreeing with someone, and telling someone they are a fundamentally flawed individual (or any other flavor of insult). Personal attacks are rude, and do nothing to further a point you’re trying to prove.

Post about Religion, Politics, or other controversial topics.
 If you think the content you’re posting might offend someone, err on the side of caution and don’t post it. You can always contact an Admin/Mod first to get feedback. If you’re still unsure, here are some examples. Violent, obscene or disturbing material includes (but is not limited to):

• The use profanity or bigotry (this includes intentionally word-twisting or misspelling)• Pornography/nudity• Vulgar sexual references

• Racist, sexist or generally hateful language

• Explicit violence, blood or gore.

Give links to illegal material, websites, or downloads. 
Regardless of what they’re called (warez, roms, torrents, iso, etc.), this is against the rules. This includes sites that contain viruses, keyloggers, malware, adware, phishing/hoaxes, hacking, bots, or any other not-yet-devised malicious content.

Steal or hijack someone else’s thread. 
This one is pretty straightforward — stay on topic, or create your own thread.

Argue for the sake of argument. 
Once you’ve said your piece in a spirited discussion, don’t continue to argue unless you’re bringing new subject matter to light. We all want to be right about what we say, but don’t post the same thing over and over just so you can have the last word. The best way to provoke further disagreement is to make your statement, then declare the discussion over (“/thread”).

Spam topics, tags or advertisements. 
You won’t get a better response if you re-post your subject under multiple forum categories. It clutters the site and makes more work for the Moderators. Also, if you’re here representing a business, please do so in your signature only, keeping in mind the signature guidelines listed below.

Create multiple accounts or impersonate others. 
Creating multiple accounts is not allowed. Impersonating others, especially Administrators or Moderators, is not allowed.

Post personal information. 
This includes e-mail addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, social security numbers, your mother’s maiden name, your first pet’s name, or any other remotely identifying information about yourself. If you decide to share personal info with another member, you do so at your own risk, and it’s always advisable to use the Private Message feature.

Post copyrighted material, or copy from other sources without citation, source or accreditation. 
If you’re copying information from another website or source, do the right thing and post a link or citation. If you’re unsure if material is subject to copyright, contact the material’s author beforehand to get their permission. Most authors want to see their work distributed, but they also want to be given proper credit.
