Some simple rules some users never respect!
As this thread title says some Members never respect some simple forum rules, it would be simple to respect them and we'd appreciate a bit more care from them
1) Coding official Companies links.
The reason is these sites, for example TomTom or iGO or Garmin have these links refbacks.
What is a refback?
A refback is one of four types of linkbacks, methods for Web authors to request notification when somebody links to one of their documents. This enables authors to keep track of who is linking to, or referring to their articles.
A Refback is simply the usage of the HTTP referrer header to discover incoming links. Whenever a browser traverses an incoming link from Site A (originator) to Site B (receptor) the browser will send a referrer value indicating the URL from where the user came. Site B might publish a link to Site A after visiting Site A and extracting relevant information from Site A such as the title, meta information, the link text, and so on.
Refback only requires Site B to be Refback enabled in order to establish this communication. Refback requires Site A to physically link to Site B. Refback also requires browsers to traverse the links.
As you can understand it's for posters' safety and forum safety to code links and not post them active and clickable.Code:Please Login or Register to see the links
How to code a link? In advanced editor you have # button, it will create the needed bbcode to insert your link.
Sharing host site links don't require a coded link.
2) No thanking posts please.
We delete pure thanking and useless posts cluttering threads , users following and subscribing a thread for new info or Moderators are really pissed off to come and read :Thaaanks or similar.
All these posts go deleted immediately, so who posts them is wasting his time. We have a "like" button and a reputation system to show your appreciation for a good post.
3) Do at least one post after registering,
for example at Members Presentation section.
0 posts users after a long inactivity time go banned and after 30 days deleted.
We still have a lot of old inactive users from Noeman's forum filling our server space and gradually we are banning and deleting them.
4) Post in English:
We might have a Babel here if everyone posts in his own language. Please respect other users who don't understand your language, this is an English speaking forum.
You can use Google translate for your posts Just copy and paste your post translation.
Thanks for understanding and for your cooperation.
