Power Simple rules of the UNIX.COM forums:


(1) No flames, shouting (all caps), sarcasm, bullying, profanity or arrogant posts.

(2) No negative comments about others or impolite remarks. Be patient. No BSD vs. Linux vs. Windows or similar negative threads.

(3) Refrain from idle chatter that does not contribute to the knowledge base. This does not apply to the forums in The Unix Lounge which are for off-topic discussions.

(4) Do not 'bump up' questions if they are not answered promptly. No duplicate or cross-posting and do not report a post or send a private message where your goal is to get an answer more quickly.

(5) Search the forums database with your keywords before asking.

(6) Do not post classroom or homework problems in the main forums. Homework and coursework questions can only be posted in this forum under special homework rules.

(7) No job postings from headhunters or recruiters except in The Unix Forums Job Board. See How to Post to The UNIX Forums Job Board for information on using the Job Board.

(8) Use Code Tags around all code and data fragments in posts.

(9) Edit your posts if you see spelling or grammar errors (don't write in cyberchat or cyberpunk style). English only.

(10) Don't post your email address and ask for an email reply. Don't send a private message with a technical question. The forums are for the benefit of all, so all Q&A should take place in the forums.

(11) Post questions with descriptive subjects. For example, do not post questions with subjects like "Help Me!", "Urgent!!" or "Doubt". Post subjects like "Execution Problems with Cron" or "Help with Backup Shell Script".

(12) These are not hacker boards so hacker related posts will be promptly deleted or moderated.

(13) The forum administrators reserve the right to prune, move or edit posts that do not adhere to the rules or are technically inaccurate.

(14) The forum administrators reserve the right to remove users or change their posting status to read only without notice if any rules are not followed.

(15) No smoking in the forums.

Additional helpful suggestion to all posters (for better, faster replies to questions):

(A) Include as many pertinent details as possible in your post. Useful information usually includes: Vendor and version of hardware or software you are using, hardware platform, kernel version (if applicable).

(B) For hardware related questions include model name/number of any affected components. For software issues, indicate which commands you are issuing and any error messages if applicable. Accuracy is important -- copy and paste if possible.

(C) Remember, this is a professional forum dedicated to the open and universal exchange of information. Please help keep the quality of the posts very high for the entire world community.

Updated rules.

Change: Code tags are now "the rule" and not just a guideline.
