General Posting Guidelines

We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.

1. Please make an introduction post!

There is a 100% chance that if you create and account and have zero posts for any real length of time, your account will be deleted. If you want to be a lurker thats fine, just post something once. Certain parts of the forum are only accessible when you have an established account with a certain number of posts.

2. Please use SEARCH first!

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.

3. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use stupid topic names, and post in the right spot

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT.  (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They don’t get attention and only annoy people).
YOU SHOULD NOT POST: Help me,  Hello,  Very urgent, I have a question; Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question “How to program a Uniden BCD996XT”

Also try to post in the right spot, just because you live in Nova Scotia doesn't mean you should post your Technical Help post in that forum.

General Forum Questions

Am I allowed more than one account?

No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums. If you forgot your password or otherwise cannot login for whatever reason, contact us, don't make a new account.

What happens if I break a rule?

We're a pretty relaxed forum and, as a result, the rules are more relaxed. We are all here to learn, and we were all newbies at one point, as long as your not flaming, spamming, and use general etiquette, you have nothing to worry about

What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?

Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin.
