Things to Remember Before Posting
by Dongfeng, Sumdud, gollevainen & bd popeye.
1, This is a military forum. All non-military related topics belong to the Off-Topic forum.
2, Discussions should be concentrated on Chinese military issues. Issues regarding other countries can be discussed in the World Armed Forces Forum.
3, When posting a new topic, please check if the same discussion already exist.
4, Please also avoid one sentence post when starting a new topic
5, The following posts will be deleted or edited;
- Posts containing personal attack, swearing, foul language(damn, hell & ass are permissable), political propaganda, and commercial advertisement better know as spam.
- Posts that are offensive to any ethnic, racial or religious groups or government. This isn't political forum.
- Posts that prompt hatred between different countries or groups of people. This includes,"Nationalistic chest thumping", "country bashing" remarks and underhanded attempts to insult various countries and governments.
- Meaningless arguments and inappropriate provocation of other members.
- Any other posts that the moderators/administrator regard as inappropriate.
This includes post with comments with "sexual comments". Don't bother with the idiotic & immature "she's hot" etc comments. Remain respectful to all women. Military or otherwise.
- Any post containing solely article of some others, without comments of the poster, this includes links also. You are responsible of the content of your links so do not post trash
- Any post that violates universally authors moral right to his own text. So do not even think about plagiarizing. Always provide a source if quoting someone else
- Political issues of any sort will not be discussed.
6, This is a place for professional discussion. Please do NOT get personal. Do not try to tempt your fellow member to behave nastily. We see quite well through your attempts. Also its not allowed to post deliberately false material or generally inappropriate comments. This isn't social chat-room so members with only that in mind would be banned.
7, Follow the instructions of the forum moderators. Warnings or banning will be issued for non-compliance. Whether you are corrected in the thread you are posting or by PM. Follow the instructions of the moderators. Do not quote or question a moderators instructions in blue or red text.
8, If a member is clearly just causing trouble, let moderators deal with him/her. Ignore all provocative posting, because it would only worsen the situation. All members. DO NOT publicy call for a member to be banned or warned!! This is the same as a personal insult. PM a mod or report the post. For those who repeatedly violate the rules here, he/she will be banned. The banning of a member is carried out by any super moderator. So please contact them directly regarding this. Members getting banned usually but not always follows the path of warnings. If member is to receive a warning, it will appear in the public warning list. After two warnings, member is to be banned for one week and permanently if he still manages to acquire a third warning. Also super moderators and administrators have ability to ban members for undisclosed periods including permanently according to individual cases. Remember >> Not everyone being banned will receive two warnings before banning!!..
9, Use only understandable English with out the use of slang that prevents someone with lesser language skills to understand.
Abbreviations such as those used when sending text messages are not permitted. Such as lil, ur, ppl hrd, etc..etc... You know what we mean. LOL and LAMO are permissible.
All rules of moderation apply to a foreign languages as well. Also as we are international community, DON'T make points about someone's lack of English skills. This is a rule that requires patience from all of us.
10, Donít forget the gollevainen's quiz of the week in the off topic forum.
A) If a moderator edits your post. So be it. Do not edit a moderators post! Do not respond to a moderators instructions that are generally in RED TEXT!
If you do decide to edit a moderators edit of your post you will receive a warning & possible suspension!
B) Multiple accounts are not permitted. Do not open a new account if you have been banned! If you have been banned for any period of time. Stay gone. You may still log in and read the forum.
C) Do not make another(multiple) post without someone responding to your previous post. If no one has not responded to a post you have made and you want to make another post simply edit your last post to include your latest thought. That's what the edit button is for.
D) For clarification ... Multiple posting is allowed in news threads and picture threads.
E) All members are NOT permitted to start a thread in which you are soliciting other members for MONEY. No matter what the charity or organization. Or threads selling any sort of items.I.E. Cell phones, Tvs, computers etc. These sort of postings are considered SPAM and will not be permitted in this forum.
ANY member who violates this policy will be banned instantly.
F) Accounts established for the sole purpose of spamming, flaming, trolling and deliberately disrupting this forum will henceforth be banned immediately.
G)The colors RED,BROWN & BLUE are for the exclusive use of moderators!! If you want to make a point use some other color or bold print. Do not increase the FONT size or use bold text exclusively. This is akin to shouting. Bold text may be used for headlines and to emphasize a point. Keep that point short. Less than one sentence!
H) Topics to compare Indian defense against Chinese defense or any India Vs China discussion are not allowed in this Forum!!!!
I) The discussion of Tienanmen Square & Tibet is forbidden.
J) Do not post graphic photos & videos without the use of a hyper-link warning!
K) The posting of Pornography or nudity of any type is not allowed in this forum. Members posting such material will be banned instantly.
L) Whereas this is a Chinese military forum members may post in Chinese. However please offer a translation whereas many members & guest do not speak or read Chinese.
M) Members shall not re-open a thread that has had no reply for more than six months! This does not apply to non-military discussions.. With the quickly advancing PLA there's no need to re-hash old subjects.
However.. If a member desires to respond to a post in a old long dead thread open a new thread on the subject..titled as such;
PLAN Destroyers II
Leave a link back to the old thread in your first post of the new thread.
Violators of this rule MAY be banned for a period to be determined by the moderators. The old thread will be closed or deleted as necessary.
N)DO NOT use the term Chinaman or Chicom in your post. Why? Read below.
Chinaman is a term that refers to a Chinese man, person, or in some cases, a racial term for any person of East Asian descent. Although the term originated in usage that was not originally offensive in intent, and was listed in older dictionaries, its use evolved into a term often used against the Chinese and other Asians as they encountered increased discrimination and injustice in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Currently, usage of the term Chinaman is strongly discouraged by Asian American organizations and others, and considered offensive by modern dictionaries, dictionaries of slurs and euphemisms, and guidelines for racial harassment. It can be compared to the ethnic slur, nig*er, used for persons of African descent, which was also used as both a self-referential and pejorative description.
