The rules are very simple, and not any different from most other forums. Simply put, there must be no soliciting for business outside of the Buy and Sell Forums.

- If you repeatedly post commercial emails outside of the Buy and Sell Forums, your account will be banned.

- If you post the same message across multiple subforums, this is considered as spam. Your account will be immediately banned.

- If you have one-off events you can post it in the Happenings subforum, but if you post normal schedules in the Happenings subforum, you will be banned.

What constitutes "commercial" posts?
- Posting of your contact information, ie. email addresses, web addresses, telephone numbers inviting others to contact you for business.

As for regular members, please do NOT post requests for tutors in our main forums. Post them in the Help Wanted subforums instead. That will save our moderators a lot of time moving those posts for you.

Thank you for the explanation.

I will however, still think that there should be communication to the users before sudden banning or termination of accounts. You should allow people to explain!

KSP had invited a lot of parents to the forum, and hence there might be a lot of service providers trying to sell their services.

The strict rules will deter the commercial or business entities to think twice before their posting, but on the other hand, I will think that 'individual' should be given the chance to undo their actions as they might not be aware of the impact of the posting.

Sometimes, you can know whether the member is doing it unconsciously, not knowing that they have broken the rules by looking at the past posting that they are contributing and the comments from other users.

Sorry, one more question. Can forum members "bump" their threads? If so, how frequent is it allowed?

I didn't know this but I think it is good to have guidelines for forums.
Is there a place where this is told to people when they sign up? Just a thought because I didn't realise it until i was browsing through the different topics on the forum.

I think the first post needs to be updated.

Is this thread still being monitored? And what if they just created another account to do the same thing?
