General rules on posting
General rules on posting:
Members are expected to be reading the rules and topic descriptions of every thread before posting. Courtesy says we respect the thread starter and what he/she requires or requests for us to share.
Every member is allowed to post his share provided there is no profanity; no religious debate; no discriminatory or antagonistic side comments. Every member is required to practice courtesy and respect the views of all when answering or sharing.
Debating and discussions are tolerated but rudeness, insults, or derogatory and side comments are not allowed and will be automatically deleted with a warning sent to member
Successive posting or repeated posting is not allowed in most forums or threads except in some cases like the Introduction forums where all are allowed to greet or post successively on a different day. This would also be allowed in cases you have a thread and you are presenting journals, articles, or essays on different dates. If you are unsure of successive posting, PM the moderator of that forum.
The forums of mabuhaycity.com is not a marketplace- we have the classifieds for this. Any posts or threads that promote a business, advertisements of any sort, links to another social networking site, contests, advertisements on your avatar or signature will be deleted without warning.
Spamming or illegal recruitment of members through the use of member emails or PM (personal messages) is not allowed and violations deem an automatic BAN from this site.
Posting in the forums requires every member to stay on topic… the Tsikahan forums are distinct to this in such that since this specific forum was created to promote backchat (small-talk, light teasing or give and take); you are allowed side comments or even greetings prior to your actual post. However, make note of some ‘game threads’ that specifically require you to follow a certain ‘rule’ in that thread.
When creating a new thread, make sure the thread is in compliance with that forum’s topic. AND make sure it is not a duplicate of another thread already posted somewhere else in the forums… there are hundreds of threads and although yours may have a different title, your theme may be the same as one already posted. The moderators will merge your thread with the ‘duplicate’ thread without warning. If you are unsure, please PM the moderator of that forum.
Editing Your Post
Sometimes, you are put in a situation that a member has ‘outpaced’ you to an answer (more specifically in the tsikahan forums of ‘game threads’) making your post irrelevant to the continuance of the thread- courtesy says we edit the post as required or you may simply delete your post.
The administrators and moderators of this site reserve the right to:
issue warnings through PM’s and rectify or edit what has been abused;
remove posts and member profiles in violations thereof;
ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules and;
to take specific actions to ensure the forums of this site is not abused or disrupted.
Warnings not heeded by members shall be recommended for suspension or ban.
