Forum rules - last revision Feb. 4, 2003

Welcome to our forum at! In order to make your stay as pleasant and constructive as possible please take your time to read through this document, it will help you navigate the pits and traps this community has created for new members.

1.) Read up before asking! There is a dedicated FAQ (frequently asked questions) section on the Total Commander homepage!

1a.) Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.

2.) Respect the netiquette: Lurk and get to know the forum before you post.

3.) Keep the focus: Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved, locked or simply be deleted.

4.) Be nice to each other and respect the moderator. Profanity and insults will not be tolerated. If you have a problem with another member turn to the respective moderator and if the moderator can't help you send a private message to Admin.

5.) Do not spam. No blatant advertising.

6.) No warez! Links to content of questionable nature are not tolerated.

7.) Keep the size of personal images down.

8.) No cross posting. Post your message to the appropriate forum and nowhere else or it will be locked or deleted without warning.

9.) Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention.

10.) Do not send questions via personal messages or email to Moderators or Admins, they will be ignored.

11.) Don't post just to increase your number of posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain matter then don't post. The number of posts on this board has no direct relation to the experience of a member.

12.) How NOT to post on this forum:

5 minutes after your initial post you reply to your own post writing something like "Why is nobody helping me? I'm sure you know the answer".

Once somebody replies to your thread but doesn't give you exactly the answer you've been expecting you insult them.

Do not ask "what's best" because this question cannot be answered objectively. Each and everyone has their own view about what's best in a certain area. The best is what works best for you!

If you don't comply with these rules you'll have to face a set of sanctions, including the banning of your account or IP address.
