If there is no response to such a message within three days, your account will be blocked.

4.3. Before starting a new topic, use the site search, perhaps Your question has already been discussed.

4.4. If you want to start a new topic, think about how to title it so that you can understand its content or the essence of Your question from the title of the topic. Compose the title of your message so that it reflects the meaning of the message (requested), and not your emotions or opinions. Don't use monosyllabic headings like "save", "Help", " Need help!", "Question", "Help Me".

4.5. Place Your theme in the appropriate topic section. Your message may contain a link to a third-party resource, but it must be worded in such a way that it is possible to respond to You without following the link. If you want to give a link as an argument in the discussion, it is important that it leads to the desired page of the site and does not require registration to view it.

4.6. Do not write messages and topics in capital letters and do not abuse exclamation marks, this is usually perceived as a cry and may cause irritation to other users.

Your Diary is a section of the resource where you are a moderator, but this does not mean that there you can not follow the rules of this resource.

4.11. Write, if possible, correctly, do not use any (youth, prison, professional, etc.) slang and newly invented words, do not distort the Russian language, this does not make You either wittier or "cooler", but only makes it difficult for others to perceive Your material, and causes reluctance to respond. Before sending the material, read it carefully again. Remember-the text editor for writing a message or comment has an automatic spell check – pay attention to the red wavy underscores of the words you have written.

4.12. Don't overload your messages with graphics. Remember that everyone has different access options to the global network. When inserting images, remember paragraph 2.17 of these Rules.

4.13. Messages of a personal nature, private discussions — of little use or useless for other users — are transferred to "private correspondence" or use email.

What to do if you are punished?

Study the rules again and decide if you agree with them. If Yes, then wait for the end of the sentence. If not, leave the forum. It is useless to write to the moderator and ask to remove the punishment. If you do write, it means that you have not read or agreed to these rules.



Everywhere above, the word Administration denotes a collegial site management body consisting of a team of moderators, a super-moderator, and a site Administrator. In case of any conflicts, problems, misunderstandings, etc. you can contact any of the moderators. It is desirable to do this through the system of private messages of this site.

If you can't find a common language with moderators, you can contact the owner of the resource. admin@aquarists-club.ru
