Enrollment and participation in this forum, means you have fully accepted and agreed to these terms.

Terms of use – Rules and conditions

2. Check your message before posting it especially for syntax that may give a different meaning to what you are trying to say.
Use the ‘edit’ button to edit a post instead of posting a new one in order to add or change a small part of the existing one.

3. Try to write your posts in an easy-to-follow manner. If your message extends to a large number of lines, it is good to split it to paragraphs. In the case you want to copy text from another web page or source you must declare this source in your message.

4. Messages must be posted in the related topics. The title of a message may be a short description of the message and under no circumstances can this be misguiding.
