Dazmode Forum Rules and Guidelines

The former (and now defunct) Dazmode Forum was a place where anyone with the desire and/ or interest to watercool their PC could come for help; aid both those new and old to watercooling, provide links to other watercooling sites, and generally hang out.

With the recent HACKING of both the (former) Dazmode Store and Dazmode Forum, certain changes had to be made, this included defining what will and will not be allowed on Dazmode Forums.
Though the list is extensive; it is both necessary and fair, shall we begin…

Dazmode Forum Rules

(1) AbsolutelyNO FLAMING, NAME CALLING OR PERSONAL ATTACKS. Mutual respect and civilized conversation is the required norm.

(2) No THREAD HIJACKING. Start another thread if you have a different topic

(3) Do not start threads if:
- You are simply responding to another thread that has been locked/deleted by a staff member.
- You are asking why a previous thread was locked/deleted by a staff member.
- You solely want to complain about the behavior of forum participants or content. In doing so, you are only creating another pointless thread.
- You have already posted the same question/comment in another forum. Do not Double Post!
- You want to send a message to a single member... Use a Private Message instead!

(4) No SPAMMING. Any such threads/ posts will be removed at the discretion of either a forum moderator or administrator.

(5) No disposable/ temporary EMAIL ACCOUNTS ([email protected], [email protected]) allowed for forum registration. You must have a valid e-mail account where you can be reached by a forum moderator or administrator. Email accounts must be updated in your account when a change is required.

(6) No CUSSING in the thread title. It is permitted in the thread body, but please refrain from using excessive profanity dammit.

(7) No BOMBING forums or threads with pointless posts.

(8) No SHOUTING (Posting in all capital letters) It’s hard to read and just plain rude and annoying.

(9) No LINKING or POSTING of pornographic material.

(10) Do not post PERSONAL INFORMATION (i.e. addresses, phone numbers, passwords, personal identification numbers, images) or any other information considered private without the express permission of the individual. You must respect the privacy of other members. Dazmode Forum has addressed privacy concerns by allowing users to set-up their accounts so that e-mail addresses may not be displayed to other users, but rather moderators and administrators only.

(11) Do not IMPERSONATE other individuals or falsely represent yourself.

(12) POST to the forum that is most appropriate for the topic being presented. Threads incorrectly placed will be moved or locked.

(13) Do not post MATERIAL where you do not have permission to distribute it electronically or otherwise. This includes posting images directly from a website (Bandwidth Theft) Images are to be hosted personally or by a third party host.

(14) Observe all COPYRIGHT LAWS, TOS's and NDA's when posting copyrighted material. If the material belongs to someone else, credit the original author. Do not post messages that violate Federal, State/ Provincial, or Local laws which include, but are not limited to, anything that violates a copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or is bound by NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

(15) No BUYING, TRADING, or SELLING anywhere with the exception of the For Sale / Trade forum. The FS/T forum has its own set of specific rules. Please read their rules before posting in that forum. No PRICE CHECKS allowed. Dazmode Forum is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any loss due to any sale or exchange of any item in the For Sale / Trade forum. Caveat Emptor!!

(16) Posting is to be in ENGLISH only; French posts are to be posted in Forum français, all other Non-English posts will be locked or removed.

(17) You will not discuss, suggest, engage, or encourage any ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Links provided to locations that deal with any such activity are also expressly forbidden.

(18) ADVERTISING, site pimping, contests or any type of business promotion is not permitted. Soliciting for fraternal organizations, humanitarian causes or personal rewards is prohibited unless approved prior to posting.

(19) Do not abuse VB CODE. It is provided as a benefit to you and its usage can be revoked.

(20) Each Dazmode Forum member is limited to one ACCOUNT/ALIAS, unless otherwise authorized by a Dazmode Forum Administrator. Protect your password and your account. You are responsible for your account regardless of compromise or stolen password.

(21) No active links, graphics, code, profanity or advertising allowed in the SIGNATURE.

(22) You must respect forum MODERATORS and ADMINISTRATORS and are bound to follow their directions and instructions.

(23) You are allowed one signature per post, do not put your signature in the body of your post. A signature section is supplied for that usage. No one wants to see your name on your posts multiple times as it is annoying.

(24) Referral or commissioned type links are not allowed in our forums. Posting these is a bannable offense.

(25) Use of special characters that break with traditional English and cause graphical anomalies will be grounds for an immediate permanent ban.

(26) Do not dig up old threads If you want to continue a discussion from an old thread (older than 2-3 months), create a new thread and reference the old one in your opening post if necessary. There is very little reason to dig up an old thread.

Breaking any of the above listed forum rules can result in the loss of posting privileges and possible loss of your forum account. Dazmode Forum also reserves the right to ban any user, at any time, and for any reason. Moderators and Administrators frequently review forum messages for those that are in violation of Dazmode Forum Rules.

FOR Vendors & Manufacturers

We welcome computer hardware vendors and manufacturers in our forums. We simply ask that they contact us before posting so we can do a few checks.

First we like to make sure that the persons are in fact who they say they are, have the proper affiliations, and also have the authority to be interacting with our forum members. We also like to identify those people with the proper titles, such as “Official Company X Rep,” etc.

Obviously this lends a tremendous amount of credibility to the person making the post, and to our forums alike. " We do not allow companies to come in and “advertise ”, but we encourage them to be active in helping their customers with issues and helping inform consumers about their product lines when they are being discussed. Public forums are a very dynamic medium for a private company but are certainly one that can be leveraged if managed properly.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions about getting authorized to post in our forums.

Though Dazmode Forums is not located within the US; it has strong ties with it, this being said, Dazmode Forums must comply with the child online safety rules laid out within COPPA.
Also; with the (possibility) of mature content being posted within Dazmode Forums, persons wanting to become a member must be of a minimum age of 21 years. Last edited: May 12, 2012
