Title: Before You Post Your First Message/Forum Rules
Post by: brynn on August 16, 2015, 01:47:00 PM
Hi Friends,

Welcome to Inkscape for Cutting Design!

We don't have a lot of complicated and detailed rules here (except as regard tutorials) and except for what you read and agreed to when you registered (reminder (;sa=view;article=2)).

The 1st and most important rule in this forum, is BE POLITE.  As long as we are polite, we don't have need for countless specific rules.  Anyone may state any opinion they may have, as their own opinion.  Direct personal attacks will not be tolerated.

Tip:  To help avoid misunderstandings, you may want to use the words "in my opinion" or the internet shorthand "imo" or "imho" (in my humble opinion").

The 2nd most important:

If the first message you post isn't directly about Inkscape, digital cutting/plotting, or otherwise related to this forum, or vector graphics, you risk being banned.

The reason for this is that many spammers, or others with malicious intent, will post as many frivolous or innocuous messages as (they think) they need, to gain access to parts of the forum, from which they are otherwise restricted.  Examples:  "Hey, I like it here, man." or "Cool, dude!"  Members who post any such message, as the very first message they post, will be put on a watch list, and their message will be disapproved.  After 3 such attempts, they will be banned.

Following are just some suggestions to make it easier A) for us to help you, or B) for you to help others.

Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy the forum  :D
