Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this bulletin board. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.
1 ) While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
2 ) Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
3 ) Please do not post a thread using CAPS for the subject to attract attention, it is considered to be shouting and rude.
4 ) Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
5 ) Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
6 ) Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. For style changes and general 'how-to' questions this should be 24 hours. For specific troubleshooting issues, use 12 hours as a guideline.
7 ) We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature or violate OZx community standards. The OZx team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
8 ) Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
9 ) Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
10 ) While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts for competitors software. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards.
11 ) We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
12 ) If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post.
13 ) Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
14 ) You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
15 ) You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
16 ) We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules, as access to our support forums are a privilege and not a right. A banned customer is still entitled to support from the support system.
17 ) Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted.
18 ) Bans will occur by user, if a user has been banned and creates a new account under a new name with a new email address and gets found out, even if the user is no longer violating the EULA, the user in question will be banned without warning
