1. Search before posting. Please use the SEARCH function before posting or creating a new thread. It is highly probable that someone has already posted the topic.
2. Member conduct.
2.1 Language: EMPOWER is a community. Please consider who is reading what you write and don’t use profanity, sexually explicit language, rudeness or swearing. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.
2.2 Nudity: EMPOWER is used by people of all ages, including minors. It is unacceptable to post nude or pornographic imagery, which includes the exposure of male or female genitalia and / or female breasts.
2.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: EMPOWER is about sharing and this does not involve virtual yelling (flaming) or rudeness. Flaming or posting with a lack of respect is unacceptable. Treat new members in the manner in which you would like to have been treated when you were a new member. When dealing with any member, provide them with guidance, advice and instructions when you can, showing them respect and courtesy. Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.
2.4 Personal attacks, racial, political and / or religious discussions: EMPOWER is a discussion forum. Any form of discrimination will not be permitted on EMPOWER.
2.5 All members are expected to read and adhere to the EMPOWER rules.
3. Post using a clear and descriptive subject and message.
4. Use the English language.
We understand that with all the different nationalities, not everyone speaks English well, but please try. If you’re really unable to post in English, use an online translator. You’re free to include your original message in your own language, below the English translation. (This rule covers your posts, profile entries and signature).
5. Create a thread or post a message only once.
As a large forum, we don’t need unnecessary clutter. You’re free to edit your message as you like, so if you do not receive an answer, revisit your message and see if you can describe your problem better. Not everyone is online at the same time so it might take a while before you receive an answer. (Also refer to Rule 14)
6. Do not post Pirated material.
Do not post copyrighted material which would lead to legal issues.
7. Do not spam, sell or trade on the forums.
If you wish to advertise a product, simply contact us. We can provide ads but you are not permitted to just post it in the forums. If you do, it will be removed and you’re likely to receive a ban.
We appreciate all donations to EMPOWER as it helps to keep our forum online and well maintained.
10. Help others if you can.
If you see posts from others where you can help out, please do so. This place exists because people are helping each other, and even if you are relatively new to the matter, there’s probably quite a few people with less experience than you, who could benefit from what you’ve learned. Don’t be shy.
11. Don’t post with the intention of selling something.
Do not use EMPOWER to advertise your product or service.
12. Advertising and Income Generation
Commercial advertising, advertising referral links, pay-per-click links and other income generating methods are forbidden. Do not use EMPOWER-Developers as a means to make money.
13. Create only ONE User Account
You are allowed ONE User Account at EMPOWER. If you create additional accounts, Moderators will disable them and your original account may also be disabled or infracted.
14. Keep threads / posts on-topic
Whilst a minor amount of off-topic posting may be overlooked, the general rule is that your posts / threads must be relevant to the Forum / thread in which you are posting.
15. Bumping Threads (posting simply to force a thread to the top of the thread queue)
Do not “bump” a thread more than once per 24 hours.
