I'm just a regular member who cares about the forums and it's members (veterans and newbies), about

the staff who are taxed to the points of repeating the same old same, over and over again - as I was one

who did get into trouble right off the bat with the forums authority figures.

 

Though not meaning to, and really wanting to do better, and for an understanding how I got there and what

I did do wrong - I reached out for help and the understanding of why (because if you don't know you broke it),

how are you going to know better the next time - to not tread in those waters again.

 

This forums thread is geared to the new member's, so I feel it the right place to have this basic version of

the Community Guidelines offered. 

As this post is a reflection of that help and knowledge I received, and the positioning of it here with it's related

information to and for the New Members, because it's one of the first few places their likely to visit

of the forums. 

 

@ Dodel, I think that Server meant that of a sticky here in this thread, for the reasons I mentioned above.

@ Server, I  don't have this power to make it a sticky, though it's a good thought and the right location for it

to be added in the contents there of.   

 

Thank you for your comments and I hope I understood and replied correctly to them.

@ jordan4x, that's so nice of you to say, I look at advanced members words, like

yourself as a feather in my hat. Not the propose and intent of my thread here though,

I care that new members be informed by whatever means they need and make contact.

The feather in my hat part is meaning I can be useful to advanced members when they

know way much more than I, that I can offer something they even can enjoy or relate too.

 

@ AP1972, Very true, some can see, but are still blind, never the less when one's ready and seeks

knowledge it's all around them. Sometimes the forums Moderators can make a blind person see.

 

@ the thread likes (members) WOW - thank you very much, I never knew till now how many

     of you there was who liked this information I've passed on here, I keep coming back to see

     this info. myself time and time again, it was so nice of DKT27 to offer it up.

 

In the Community Guidelines under Policing:
"We try to look after our members, and as such, expect the same from our members.

If there is a problem with any member on this forum, please contact a staff member so that

they can deal with it appropriately.

Please don't try to deal with these issues by yourself as it will most likely cause bigger problems".

I wished New Members would stop asking for Paid Material - in the forum and Status Updates

as they do. IN THE OPEN.

 

*** PM's to Members or Found in a ShareCode is Perfectly fine and method to use.  ***

 

This isn't right to do it other than stated in the BOLD TYPE right above ^

to where visitors can See them in the Open Forum not hidden by the sharecode method.

Bad for the Forums image in Regards to Copy Rights violations.

 

Not forgetting is trouble, trouble, troubling to the new members their selves.

 

:oops:  If you slipped up once - ok,  trouble is if you begin to make it a habit

My point is that the Community Guidelines are for all, and a REQUEST BY YOU in the OPEN FORUMS

for Paid Material is NOT ALLOWED - as per the Community Guidelines.

 

The Community Guidelines doesn't make a distinction of a giveaway to a software or in distinguishing

(shareware/commercial) in giveaways as being anything other than to respect copyrights.

Since these giveaways are normally offering paid for material -

I believe not taking advantage of the giveaway during the period

offered from the developers/venders site is your loss.

 

""Members are reminded to respect copyrights.

As such, any links or posts containing illegal content are not permitted.

This includes and is not limited to cracks, keygens, serials and "licensed" software materials."" -

from the Community Guidelines - Quote.

 

Although I've seen that one is able to send PM's to Members or finding it in a SHARECODE is perfectly fine.

Usually if a member has obtained extra's they will ask members to PM them.

This is the proper way in doing so, to hiding in someway from it just being posted out in the open forums -

which could/would bring nsane into legal matters undo it - for members conduct.

 

It's not that hard to understand in todays world - is it.

Authorities shutting down pirate sites all the time for copy rights.

I'm glad to hear this maybe has helped you some, It sure was spelled out clearer by DKT27,

then that I had understood from the first few visits I did make to the Community Guidelines

before DKT27 insightful words to me.

Being new members finding your way around the forums may be somewhat hard for you, so I'll share with you what works for me and hope makes it easier for you.

 

The best way I've found is to start at the nsane forums index, which can be assessed by right clicking / tapping the logo in the upper most left side of every page (EX: nsaneforums / software as it should be).

After the page loads this is the index of all the sites related categories with the Forums and Sub-forms listed under each heading, Sub-forums are listed under their respective forum listing if one is offered. If you haven't found something in particular your looking for then try a search of the site. (see below) 

 

USING SEARCHBOX:

You will always find the searchbox just under your forums name in the top right corner of each forums page, it's a very handy and helpful tool at your disposal.

Clicking in the open field of the search box, expands it and, on the left side of the search box is a dropdown menu consisting of different options for different site pages, I'll try to explain below what I've noticed offered and from what forums page.

 

Forums Index - Topics / Advance Search

Forum Topics   - This Forum / Topics / Members / Advance Search

Forum Topics, Topic - This Topic / This Forum / Topics / Members ? Advanced Search 

of course " All Content " is always listed in the above as well but, the deeper you go in to a Forum Category, Topic/Sub-Topic, the more ways and search options you have offered to you. Search default is "All Content".

 

Entering a Search Term:

When you input a term in to the searchbox it needs at least 4 characters entered, (3 characters seldom works), and versions of software after it's name doesn't give a good result. So a name like "Kaspersky" or term as "drive" will most likely give you positive results.

Entering rapid search queries to fast will cause the search feature to likely time out on you for a few seconds.

* I wanted to be correct here as the Staff is always working on the site, I tried vpn and tor for search queries and did return a listing, go figure.

 

Well that's about it - if anyone cares to add to or has question, just ask here or comment. Need something answered please PM a Staff Member.  

Hope this was helpful and informative.

Alas my friend, I only pass this on from one who knew the answers to my questions (DKT27) I just give it in (I hope) a cleaner means of short medium and fuller than what my reading CG left me with.

It helped me when I was new and lost as what I had broken/stepped out of bounds of, I'm no expert but, have learned from my mistakes. Only wishing to help other members...:)
