We reserve the right to modify and amend these terms at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to remain informed of the current forum policies.

  • English is the primary language of this forum, and you are therefore expected to use English in all areas of the forum unless it has been clearly indicated that Chinese or other languages are acceptable in that specific area.

  • Spamming is frowned upon here. If you have a website, feel free to mention it to people. But posting in various threads only to advertise a product, service, or website is not allowed. The only exception to this is the market area, but one thread only, please. Violators will be warned and serious violations will merit a permanent ban (permaban) of the user. Posts in violation of this rule will be deleted.

  • No abuse of signatures, avatars or profile fields. This includes, but is not limited to obscene, pornographic, racist, sexist, or anything else that may threaten the continued existence of this website to users in China.

  • No plagiarism. If you copy and paste an entire article don't pass it off as your own. Give credit where credit is due.

  • Respect the decisions of moderators. It doesn't mean that you can't question any decisions, but the manner in which someone questions a decision is important. Also personal messages are the preferred method of raising questions about mod decisions.

  • No "sock puppets." Users should maintain one account and "persona" on the forum. Users who purposely misrepresent themselves using more than one profile or account will be warned and run the risk of being banned.

  • You cannot use someone else's name for your username. Therefore if you are not Yao Ming you may not use that for your user name and so on.

  • Excessive and unwarranted personal attacks are expressly prohibited. This specifically means any text/post that is blatantly attacking another person on or off the forum, especially in a personal way. Flame wars are a definite no-no!

  • Trolling is prohibited. Trolling is defined as a member intentionally posting for the purpose of angering and/or insulting other forum members. Trolling only encourages further attacks and does nothing to further the discussion. This includes personal messages.

  • The forum includes a multitude of boards, select the most appropriate area for any new topics you wish to start.

  • The moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, racist etc as noted in these points, is at the moderator's discretion.

  • 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.

  • Any posts not meeting these guidelines may be removed.

Again, we reserve the right to modify and amend these terms at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to remain informed of the current forum policies.
