Registration Rules/Terms and Conditions
1. Cracking is an English-language site
This is an English website, all forum posts must be written in English — Any threads or replies written in a language other than English may be removed without notice. This is mainly because we cannot moderate languages we do not understand.
2. Do not use abusive or disrespectful behavior
Take extra care to be kind in your comments to other users and never react negatively to comments you perceive as rude or otherwise objectionable. Instead, it is always wiser to either end the discussion, ignore the comment entirely, or in more severe cases report the offense to our moderators by clicking the "Report" button under the post.
The following behaviors are examples of what will not be tolerated in the Cracking Forums.
- Flaming - writing hostile or insulting messages aimed at other users for their views, comments, status as a user on the site, or any other reason. You can disagree with someone's views and still be polite about it.
- Trolling - posting controversial (sometimes off-topic) messages with the intent of baiting other users to reply. Also, please do not feed trolls.
- Personal attacks - posts that insult a poster directly. This includes any attacks against forum moderators or administrators.
- Inciting or Boycott - using the forums or Private Messages for encouraging or inciting any kind of action, reporting, or boycott endeavor against anyone is strictly prohibited.
3. Do not discuss moderator actions on the forums
Do not complain if a moderator removes a message you posted. We trust our moderators, and if they have removed a message, they had a good reason. If you do not agree with a moderator's decision, you may send a private message to the moderator or community administrator.
4. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help or leaking a hidden content. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
5. Abusing site functions "Feedback", "Reactions", "Report"
Giving feedback for a seller you did not deal with, mass reacting members' posts, or reporting threads without a reason will lead to a warning.
6. Inappropriate Content
Do not post material that is hateful or mean towards race, religion, sex, or any other offensive nature. You can debate religion and politics in the lounge forum, but you can do so WITHOUT being mean or hateful about it.
