This section covers general forum conduct. Breaking rules in this section will likely get your account banned - you have been warned!
If you wish to swear, please fully censor the words. 'Light' swearing is allowed, but in moderation.
No pornography under any circumstances please.!
'Warez' and Piracy
No requests or 'promotion' of such activity please. Any posts that qualify in our eyes as promotion or request for copyrighted material will be removed.
bit-tech complies fully with the laws of The United Kingdom and posts containing libellous comments will be removed.
Any flaming of other members is disallowed. Posts promoting hatred on the grounds of colour, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other grounds unacceptable to us are disallowed.
You are permitted to use only one account 'per head' at the bit-tech.net forums. Violation of this rule will, in almost all cases, result in all accounts involved being banned. If you wish to change your forum username, you do not need to create a new account - contact an admin and we can rename your account, assuming the username you want is available.
Due to the modding nature of bit-tech's forums, we allow you to edit your post for an infinite amount of time - incase you need to change the links to pictures you are posting in your project log, for example.
No hot-linking images from other people's servers. bit-tech.net is an exception, you're free to use our images in posts at this forum (but not elsewhere).
Pimping your website or business
We don't mind a link in your signature or your homepage setting in your profile to link to your website, but excessive pimping of your website, links to articles on your website or constant referrals to your website are all prohibited. Links will be removed at a moderators discretion.
Referral links to pyramid (free ipods etc) / other "money making" schemes are not allowed
We do not allow traders or independent sellers to use our sales forums. The sales forums are strictly for the benefit of members of the community.

|Help! Why aren't my posts being displayed?|
|Why can't I vote on polls in the Article Discussion forum?|
Due to abuse in the Mod of the Month Polls we have introduced a limit in the Article Discussion forum. As much as we like to welcome new members, we need to ensure that voting is fair by limiting it to regular readers and contributors. For this reason we are introducing the following restrictions:
Remember, posts are constantly being watched by our team of moderators so spamming to reach 15 will be noticed.

You may specify yourself an avatar (picture under your username in threads).
Avatars may be no more than 85px x 85px. Only JPG and GIF formats are allowed. Your avatar picture can be no more than 20kB in size, and must not be 'offensive'.
We reserve the right to remove or alter your avatar at any time without prior warning.Profile Pictures
You will have a certain user title depending on how many posts you have. You may specify your own, or keep with the 'forum set' titles.
The table below describes what title you will be given depending on how many posts you have made
When you have reached a post count of 10 you will have the option to set a signature to be affixed after every post you make, much like email signatures. We ask that you keep the size of your signature to be a reasonable length. We have disabled images in signatures -- please do not ask for them to be enabled!
