    Man, oh man, oh man. This is nothing new, but some people don't read the rules here.

    Hey, but I get it, there are a bunch of rules and it doesn't help that the TOS page might look like this to you:
    [​IMG]

    But fret not, for I've taken the liberty of illustrating some of the rules here for you.

    BHW Rules Illustrated

    Rule 3.1: Spamming
    [​IMG]

    You see the problem here, right?

    Rule 12: Selling Outside of the Marketplace/Rule 4: Affiliate Links
    [​IMG]
    Imagine how ghetto this forum would be if every Joe-Blow decided to spam their services and links everywhere. Nobody would want to come to this forum except for other spammers.

    Speaking in a Language Other Than English
    [​IMG]
    Conversations would digress, some people would know what you're saying, others wouldn't, and unsurprisingly a xenophobe would appear in every thread.

    I understand that Google Translate doesn't do the best job, so speaking in your native tongue would be easier for you. However, Google Translate is also the reason people don't like using it to translate the content of other people's posts.

    Discussing Religion & Politics
    [​IMG]

    These discussions almost always turn into flame wars. Everyone tries to argue about why their notions are correct and everyone else's is wrong. In the end, no one changes their opinion.

    Coming Back With A New Account After Getting Banned
    [​IMG]
    This is exactly what it looks like when some of you previously banned members try to come back here... With your moustache disguises.

    Mod Surfing
    [​IMG]
    Despite the way it sounds, this is not a Summer surfing trip for moderators; it's just another term for mod abuse.

    Leaving Fake Reviews
    [​IMG]
    If your service is so bad that you need to post fake reviews, you're bound to get ShitListed eventually.

    Rule 3.1 (Again): Hacking Discussions
    [​IMG]
    This is an SEO forum, not a hacking forum.

    More rules will be illustrated over time.​

    Can we sticky this?

    Although I have to admit I'm having a conversation in Thu'um with someone on this forum right now. I tried translating it through Google translate for shits and giggles. It came out exactly like your second pic.

    Maybe that's because it's not a real language. :rolleyes:

    Is there a way that all new people who sign up and join BHW have to read and agree to rules before their accounts are approved and become active ?

    Some of them have businesses they run through Skype. I actually realised more recently that the reason they never change their Skype IDs after getting banned is because of their Skype businesses. When they get banned, they just create another account and go right back to luring users to Skype (not for very long, though).

    That is brilliant, and you put a lot of time into it. It should be on the signup page. [​IMG]

    Hey @Zwielicht now that you're a mod, I've been meaning to get mod-certified verification on my p.h.d and was wondering if you would be so kind as to volunteer.

    It's for a.... job application...service...post...how to thread.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Pewep

    Master Z, just one question: There are cases when members are offering their services on the Marketplace and a few dozens of ppl comes asking for samples, is it considered spamming? I'm asking because I've done it myself without even considering that I could be breaking forum rules.
