Don’t be disruptive!
This means no spamming, no trolling, no flaming, no inappropriate content, no platform wars, no backseat moderating, no racist slurs, and other such behavior detrimental to conversation.
It means that when you disagree with someone, you discuss your differences in a calm and civil manner and take the matter to private message should it begin to interfere with or derail conversation in the thread.
Instead of repeating a well-known meme, create or write something original!
Avoid posting responses that don't do much to further the conversation, especially if that response involves popular images or phrases.
Stay on topic!
If it doesn't have anything to do with the main topic of the thread, don't bring it up.
If necessary, make a new thread or take the matter to private message.
At the Dobermann Software Forums, we ask that you treat your fellow forum members with respect.
Disparaging comments towards other members, moderators, Dobermann Software and its affiliates will not be tolerated.
If you can't say something that contributes to a thread and is tactful, useful, or relevant, it's best that you don't post.
If you feel a moderator is acting inappropriately, please contact a different moderator via private message.
