MakerPlane Usage Guidelines: Six Easy Rules

MakerPlane provides these Forums as a service to its members, to provide a friendly environment, where members can help one another and exchange ideas, tips, news, and information.

These Forums are most valuable when everyone obeys certain basic guidelines and rules for behavior. We are listing these guidelines here so you know what is expected of you and what you can expect from others.

We appreciate your help in keeping the MakerPlane forum a clean and friendly community! The following are a few simple rules to keep in mind while you're here.

Rule 1:
We are all here to learn - The purpose of this forum is to enable the members of the community to help each other, and share their experiences. If you are new to the forums and have questions, don't hesitate to ask. If you are a veteran of the forum and see new people joining the forums, please welcome them and help them out if you can.

Rule 2:
Be Considerate - Everyone wants to have a good time on the Forums. Do not post harassing, threatening, abusive, lewd, or inflammatory comments. Flaming people, products, or organizations is never acceptable. Neither is trolling. Instead, be friendly, helpful, and supportive and the forum will be much more enjoyable for everyone. That isn't to say you can't talk smack or that this place is supposed to be like Sunday school. That said you are expected to exercise good judgment and don't get carried away.

Rule 3:
Be Relevant - Please stay on topic. These Forums are provided to enable members to help each other in sharing their passion for open source aircraft. Please refrain from discussing personal matters, abusing any company or product, or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to the direct purposes expected in the Forums.

Rule 4:
Don't Break the Law - Do not make any unlawful, libelous, defamatory posts, or posts that infringe upon any intellectual property rights. Do not conduct any activity that may be illegal, or harmful in any way, to people, to software or hardware, such as hacking, flooding scripts viruses or Trojan horses. This also goes for references to any 'warez', cracks, serials or illegally obtained copyrighted content! Links to content of a questionable nature, asking for, offering, or asking for help/helping to process such content in any way or form is not tolerated.

Rule 5:
Don't Spam - Do not use the forums in any way to promote third party services, products, websites, or organizations. Make sure that you are posting for the good of the community, not just for the sake of self-promotion. This also includes our PM/Email system. We take PM/Email/Post abuse very seriously, and it will result in the immediate removal of your membership and ban of your IP address, without warning.

Rule 6:
Search Forum - Before posting a new question, please do read the forums relevant to your question to make sure it hasn't already been thoroughly covered. Please pay particular attention to any sticky threads (threads at the top of a category).
