This page includes rules and guidelines for using the Scopic Vendor forums. We assume good faith when dealing with violations; we will only warn or ban users who repeatedly or blatantly violate the rules.
Administrators have the final say in modifying, interpreting, and enforcing these rules.
Language and conduct
Do not use obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, or excessively violent language.
Do not harass, insult, taunt, provoke, demean, or personally attack other forum members. Be friendly even if others are not.
Do not excessively “bump” a thread (post simply to get a thread to the top of the list).
Subjects covered in the Vendor forum
Posts in the vendor forum must be either questions about the use of scopic vendor services or else answers to those questions. Users who post about subjects that are not support requests for those Scopic Vendor Services will be directed to an alternative discussion forum or to another resource, if appropriate, and the question will be tagged “offtopic”.
Users who post forum spam will have their posts removed. If a post that is otherwise appropriate includes links considered to be spam, those links will be removed.
Link to content rather than posting it in its entirety, unless you are the copyright holder or have permission from the copyright holder.
Do not post direct links to executable files. Moderators may remove these links to protect users from potentially malicious downloads. (You can post a link to the webpage that contains the file download but it may also be removed if a Moderator finds that the web page content could be harmful or if the web page link is spam.)
Don’t post any sensitive information. Moderators will remove personal information from posts to protect your privacy.
Images and other media
You can add images, such as a “screenshot” of your computer screen. Added images or other media must help explain a problem or solution. Inappropriate media will be removed.
