FORUM RULES
Well, there had to be some !

Please take time to read them, it'll save us all so much time and trouble later.


The Golden Rule
  • No multiple usernames... for whatever reason.

General Rules
  • Post in the proper thread - it isnít difficult: If your post relates to a specific contest, post in the relevant forum of the "Contest Discussion" section. For anything else, post in the relevant forum of the "Any Other Business" section.

  • It is essential that nothing you post contains bad language or anything that can be considered offensive or inflammatory. This includes usernames, signatures, avatars and titles as well as actual post content.

  • Please also keep signatures simple (in appearance). Signatures which contain fancy images and/or links, or span several lines generally break up the thread and make it difficult to read.

  • No text speak. Itís tedious, irritating and makes you look stupid not young.

  • Please obtain permission before posting links to other sites, for whatever reason, anywhere on this forum (including in signatures).

Contest Discussion
  • You should refrain from asking for, or providing, help on the public forums of other sites - especially those where you are unable to edit/delete your posts.

  • Posts regarding specific puzzles must be in the correct topic of the correct forum, and should not contain any of the puzzleís content, blatant hints, or the answer.

  • Conversely, topics relating to specific puzzles should only contain posts about that puzzle. If you happen to be having a war with others on the same question, do it elsewhere (preferably on a different site!).

  • Finally, as an aside, if you do pm somebody for help, make very clear which puzzle of which contest you are stuck on, what you have tried and what kind of nudge you want. Failure to do this could result in your plea being ignored.

Invisible Ink

  • Even when using "invisible ink", posting blatant clues and/or answers on the open forum is forbidden.

    To use "invisible ink", to post something (or send somebody a message) but give others a choice as to whether or not they read it, simply block the text in question and select "invisible" from the "Font colour" drop down list. This text will then only be visible when it is highlighted (highlight to reveal!).

Any breach of these rules will be found, and remedied as we see fit.
