Forum Guidelines

With new users joining every day, it's come time to create a set of forum guidelines and rules. Please remember, these forums are provided to support Gossamer Threads products, and to provide a place to discuss the technologies used in our products.
Forum Rules:
There aren't too many rules, but please read through these before posting.

No Advertising: Unsolicited or unrelated advertisements as well as announcements or links to competing products are not allowed in posts and will be removed without warning. We do allow announcements or discussions about plugins developed for any of our products (free or commercial). Also, discrete links to the posters company, products or services are allowed in the posters signature (adult, mlm, or affiliate links are not accepted).

Posts: Abusive, racist, sexist or derogatory remarks towards other users will not be tolerated. Offensive, obscene or illegal posts or links is also not allowed. Keep your post on topic while in the product related forums, and use the Chit Chat forum for other topics.

Licenses for Sale: While you are allowed to sell your license for any of our software (as long as you keep no copies yourself and email us who the new owner is), we do not allow posts offering a license for sale on any of our forums.

Signature Length: Please limit your signature to a maximum of 4 lines.

Official Support: While staff at Gossamer Threads visit the forum regularly, for official support please visit http://gossamer-threads.com/support/ and create a support ticket.
Forum Etiquette:
These are common sense guidelines you should follow when using the forum.

Search First: We have a powerful search system! Before you post, visit our search page. Try limiting the forums you are searching to just the product you are interested in. If you have too many results, try limiting the date to the last 6 months.

Search Again: Seriously, there are over 200,000 posts in this forum, chances are your questions has been asked a couple times. Also be sure to visit our resources section at http://gossamer-threads.com/scripts/resources/.

Pick the proper forum: Your question will get answered much quicker if you take a minute and read through the description of each forum, and pick the most appropriate forum for your post.

Stay on topic: Stick to the original author's question when replying. If you are straying off into a new topic, start a new thread for it. Be the bigger person and don't reply to off topic posts.

Be patient: Give new users some slack, don't chastise them for not reading this guideline first. Make them feel welcome into the community. We were all newbies once. Avoid sarcasm, it's often lost in the post and just ends up being rude.

Be Nice and have fun!

If you have questions about any of this, please feel free to drop me a private message.
