The Golden Rule, sometimes referred to as the Ethic of Reciprocity, states that "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself". We should always remember this ethical code on Rise Forums and conduct ourselves in a professional manner at all times.
It should be understood by everyone that racism and abusive language will not be tolerated on the forum. Anyone found publishing messages of this kind will be banned indefinitely. No ifs, no buts. It is the 21st century and racist attitudes belong in the stone age.
Additional rules and guidelines
- No affiliate links in posts or signatures
- No self-promotion or promotional posts outside of the Marketplace
- No spamming through private messages
- No posting or sharing of illegal digital files such as eBooks, themes, and software
- Do not hijack threads and go off topic with completely different questions. It is unfair to the member who started the thread and asked for help. If you need help with something, start a new discussion about it.
Affiliate links are banned because they cause a lot of problems with certain members trolling through posts looking for opportunities to share their affiliate link and make money. These types of members bring nothing to do the forum and increase the number of poor quality posts here. The same problem occurs with self-promotional posts, which is why all advertisements need to be placed in the marketplace.
We have a duty to support developers, not hurt their business; therefore we do not support the illegal sharing of products on the forum.
Our rules are in place to ensure that the quality of Rise Forums remains high. We do not want a heavily moderated community, however we do not want the forum to become a haven for spammers either. That is why these rules are in place.
Please contact us if you are unsure of any of our guidelines.
