|The NeXTComputers.org Forum rules were designed to provide a positive environment for exchanging information and ideas on everything NeXT. We have no intention of running the forums like Boot Camp, but without rules these forums would degrade to the level of Usenet. So please help us maintain the NeXT best place to hang out.
The NeXTComputers.org administration team.
NeXTComputers.org Forum Rules:
(1.) Positively no flaming or name calling. Mutual respect and mature, civilized conversation is required here. This is a no drama zone.
(2.) No thread hijacking. Create a new thread if you have a different topic.
(3.) No off-topic posting. The Lounge area is set up to host general conversation topics.

(11.) No posting of personal information, such as real names, addresses, phone numbers, personal identification numbers, passwords, images, or any other information considered private without the express permission of the individual. NeXTComputers.org has addressed privacy concerns by allowing users to set up their forum accounts so that e-mail addresses may not be displayed to other users, but rather moderators and administrators only. Respecting the privacy of other members is required here.

(13.) Create your post in the forum that's most appropriate for the topic being presented. Posts incorrectly placed will be moved or locked.
