Community Guidelines

Self-Promotion is Spam

All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. Questionable content will be edited or removed. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests fits under this subject.

Language and Trolling

Language must not be offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate. Inappropriate or defamatory language will potentially be removed and users will be warned. Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling."

Personal Attacks

In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals.

Moderators and Administrators Have the Final Word

If you have a problem or a complaint, please direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards. The appropriate actions will be taken.


If you have something to post and you're not sure where it belongs, do not post it in more than one area. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there.

If you have any questions, please contact qldwater.
