    Make sure you are posting constructive criticism, whether it’s negative or positive. We do take feedback from here into account.

    Notice: Administrators/Moderators reserve the right to change/edit/delete any content at any time if they feel it is inappropriate.

    I. General Forum Rules:

    Do not:

    – Flame or insult other members.
    – Use swear words, profanity, insulting or offensive language.
    – Abuse or encourage abuse of the Private Messaging Systems.
    – Post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.)
    – Bump threads.
    – Derail a thread’s topic.
    – Post links to phishing sites.
    – Post spam (i.e. 10char, rickrolls) or Re-post Closed, Modified, Deleted Content.
    – Repetitively post in the incorrect forum
    – Openly argue with a moderator. Contact the Moderator via a private message.
    – Share your account. Forum accounts are intended for the use by one person.
    – Create alternate, backup, or multiple accounts.
    – Publicly post or otherwise share PMs with other users unless you have the expressed permission of the sender to do so. Private Messages are intended to be just that – private.

    II. The following topics are strictly off limits, including in external links:

    – Porn, gross stuff, or anything else not safe for work
    – Piracy, warez, Leaked content.
    – *Any* discussion of piracy will result in a permanent ban from the ZAQ Audio Forums.
    – Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
    – Posting copyrighted material such as magazine scans
    – Soliciting, begging, auctioning, selling, advertising, referrals
    – Racism, discrimination
    – Drugs, alcohol
    – Religious, political, and other “prone to huge arguments” threads

    III. No Backseat Moderating:

    Let the Forum Moderators do the moderating. Backseat Moderating is when people who are not Moderators try to enforce the forum rules. Whenever you see a person breaking the rules, report the post to a moderator. Or simply IGNORE the offensive post(s) or thread. The most common backseat reply is the “+1 in before lock” phrase. Backseat moderating is annoying, and pointless.

    IV. Report Post to the Moderators:

    Should you observe a fellow forum member breaking these rules please report the post by contacting any of the Forum Staff.

    V. Lifetime Achievement Award:

    Users who are found to be repeat offenders will be removed from the forums.
