I don't think we were very clear with us rules so here are some better rules to understand.
Note: The old rules still apply!

This international forum is made for people who are Fahrenheit fans or people who want to know more about them. But of course, all people around the world is welcome. At this forum we use the language English and Chinese (Traditional). So, it is important to keep this forum clean for everyone's comfort and these following rules are here to help it.

Messages posted on the forum

- Before you post: A search should be done to see if your questions have not been already posted. You have a FAQ section where you can find answers for general questions about board management
> Go to Frequently Asked Questions

- Topic titles: When you post something important, you must use a title related to your topic. Words such as "Urgent", "SOS", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry", ''OMG!!!'', ''Check this out'' are not tolerated. Capitals should also be avoided.

- Language on this forum: When you write in English/ Chinese (Traditional), SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided. Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write, so put a minimum of care in your English, even if your English is not very good.

- Colors and capitals: When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it means that you shout) or colors.
Some colors are reserved for moderation and light colors are hard to read for visually impaired people.

- Flood and off-topic: Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single smiley must be avoided.
You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response.
As long as you topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to up it. The minimun delay between two Ups is 24 hours, according to this board's default timezone GMT - 5 (US & Canada).
If you make a mistake, please use the Fahrenheit Avenue's general rules Icon_post_edit_en button at the top-right of your post, to avoid double-posting.

- Advertising: Spamming for your forum, blog, profilesite and so on is not tolerated, even by PM. Just put your website url in your profile information. A button would appear underneath your avatar with a link if you post.

- Other advertising: It is also forbidden to post advertising for money-related stuff, many of our members are under 18.

Behavior on the forum

- Defamatory, racist, hateful, pornographic, illegal or insulting content must be avoided on this forum. You must respect the fact that people may have a different opinion than you. If you are in conflict with another member, please use PMs for that, this forum is not an arena!

- You must respect the moderators and administrators. They all work volontarily on this forum and they are human, not machines! Also, they don't get paid for it. So don't complain cause we're doing our best, but you're free to comment and giving us tips!

- If you received advertising, pornographic content or insults by PM, you must send the whole copy (including the headers) to a moderator by PM. Posting it in a topic is useless and will only cause conflicts between you and the one who sent you the PM.

- If you found an FA member that doesn't respect, PM a administrator or moderator instead of creating a topic. That will avoid undeliberate advertising.

- If you don't find your topic, it may have been moved to a more appropriate place, to find back your topic you can simply use our search or going to your profile and check your topic history.
If you have a question, PM a moderator for that!

Avatar and Profile

- Avatar dimensions: Your avatar's width must not exceed 150 pixels and its height must not exceed 200 pxels. These limits are here to avoid scrolling for people who have a low screen resolution. You must also respect the limit of weight which is fixed to 64 KB. There are still people who have a low-speed connection, and heavy pictures take time to load for them.

- Your avatar is not an advertising banner, so avatars with your urls must be avoided.

- Sexually oriented and gore avatars must be avoided

Possible sanctions

- If your avatar doesn't respect the rules and you ignore the moderator's request to have it changed, the Administrator may forbid you from displaying an Avatar.

- Advertising for money-related stuff = Immediate ban

- Ignoring the moderators' warnings and continuing to not respect the rules, insulting people and trolling may result to a simple ban from this forum.

If you have any question about one of the forum rules, please PM a administrator or moderator to ask your question.

Thanks for your comprehension.
