Topics and Posts

2. Make posts on topic, discussing relevant issues at hand. If a member wants to start a discussion in a different direction, begin a new topic.

3. Do not use extreme font size or style in your post. Use special font parameters only to highlight a particular word or a short phrase when it really necessary.

12. Moderators may move the topic into another section, if the subject matter is not related to the section of the forum it was in, or if there is a more appropriate section of the forum.

13. Moderators may close a topic if it causes conflict among members and further posts are not related to the original subject, or if the topic violates forum rules. In this case the moderator must add a post with the explanation of his/her interference.
