Code of Conduct
Any information within this post is subject to change at any time. Welcome to CodeForum.ORG! We are truly honoured to have you with us as a member of the CodeForum.ORG community and look forward to the many great things ahead. Before you start indulging in our community, we kindly ask for you just to take a few moments to look over the CC of CodeForum.ORG to ensure you and other members have fun and are safe while using our website.

Help out the community by:
  1. Try to greet new members in the introduction forum! We want to show newcomers that we are a friendly community.
  2. You may reply to an old-post if related.
  3. Share us!
Inappropriate Content:
  1. When posting you need to be sure to add some value to your post. Add lots of information, explain yourself, make your post enjoyable to read.
    1. This shall include thread titles, or titles or resources, media items.
  2. Make yourself understood. Use proper grammar to the best of your ability. We understand that English may not be everyone’s main language, but make an attempt. You won’t get in trouble for a misplaced comma or typos, but it would help everyone if you could make sure everyone understands your message.
  3. Using people's content is okay with their consent if you were not permitted by the author of the original post/content will be removed and you shall be given a warning.
  4. Posting illegal/null and or hacking scripts is prohibited (Hacking scripts will result in a permanent ban).
  5. Any discussions regarding illegal hacking are prohibited. E.g. to take control and or access data without the permission of the owner.
  6. No sharing inappropriate pictures.
  7. Before posting a thread asking for help please review (Before asking your question), (Q&A system has changed) and (How to ask a good question).
  8. Any posts that contain pornography and child pornography will be removed and your account will be permanently banned. Local authorities will be contacted.
  9. When sharing or placing code in a thread/post please format the code using our BBCode to make it easier to read and understand by whoever is looking at your code. Check out the thread that was created about BBCode and examples on how to use it properly. https://codeforum.org/threads/how-to-post-your-code-into-threads.183/
  10. Avoid posting threads and posts that contain a wall of text
    1. this is defined as posting a large paragraph or more)
    2. Suggestion: Instead format your post in such a way where it makes it interesting and understandable. It should be straight to the point and easy to read. Perhaps add some photos, bullet points, coloured font, code examples etc.
  11. **NEW** Avoid posting screenshots and or pictures of code. It makes it harder to come up with a solution to your question, if we cannot copy and paste the code into our IDE.
Inappropriate Behaviour/Language:
  1. Be respectful towards member's opinions and ideas they may have. It's fair to disagree and to have a different perspective, but present your case on why you disagree thoroughly.
  2. When replying to other member's post try to stay on topic, although we will not penalize you, we strongly encourage you to not divert from the topic. E.g. the post is about HTML, but you decide to start talking about cats.
  3. Use common sense. This includes but is not limited to avoiding spamming, being excessively rude or arguing against the staff members. If you have a conflict with a member or a staff member, contact the administration through a private message rather than having heated debates in the forum discussions. Avoid using Vulgar, offensive or otherwise obscene names towards staff or another member.
  4. Unwelcoming behaviour is not tolerated at CodeForum.ORG; this is regards to posts or replies where statements such as "Google it, search google" and or "that's a stupid question" will result in a warning. We are a community, we help each other, encourage each other.
  5. Do NOT just answer a question; give an explanation, facts, share some examples. Code Forum is about learning, we must help each other learn.
  6. Do not use 'bump' within 24 hours of thread creation, and or if the post has not had any activity for 24 hours.
    1. Modifying and or changing a topic and posting a reply with information DOES NOT count toward a bump.
    2. Example: You posted about needing help with C++ but figured out part of your problem before anyone could help you, then you may post a reply.
      1. Use 'bump' when you have nothing further to add but wish to bring your or another thread back to the top for more information and or an answer to the thread.
Inappropriate Advertising / Spam:
  1. Please do not advertise other developing communities at CodeForum.ORG. You may, however, reference a resource or a tutorial/guide.
    1. This may also include:
      1. **NEW** Services and or products you (others) provide.​
  2. Do not promote sites on Code Forum; this may include but not limited to forum threads, profile posts, private messaging and or any other affiliation to Code Forum.
    1. However, if you are seeking help with your website, app or any other development then you can share a link to help you and others solve your issue.

You mention Hacking-Scripts/Programs but you don't mention any Discussions around Hacking or any Posts that give advice to people who plan to start Hacking or need advice for when they are Hacking. Are Discussions/Advice related to Hacking allowed or is anything Hacking-Related banned?

My 2 pence, hacking conversations should be allowed. You learn to deffened your self if you know how someone will get in. Maybe open a section where people can discuss White Hack Hacking such as asking if someone can crack there site and help them secure it etc. if its Black Hat Hacking then that should be banned.

I get what you mean but I think what many people are getting confused that Code Forum is a webmaster forum rather than what it’s actual purpose is: a coding forum.

However you are able to discuss how to secure things like servers, websites and apps etc from potential security exploits using code.

I just noticed this and I think it should honestly be removed. The user shouldn't have the option to share their IP. While yes, IP Addresses are randomized and different for every device, they still shouldn't be shared.

The reason I say this is due to DDoS attacks. If somebody gets a hold of the IP, they could easily utilize the ping command that is built into every OS. Thus' once the IP has been obtained and the ping command starts being used, the attacker could easily send the maximum amount of bytes allowed in a single packet(This is around 65,500+ bytes). Due to mass swarms of data(Bytes) being sent, the person who has shared their IP Address publicly here on CF, will now have their network flooded with large packets of data, thus' overwhelming the network, and possibly causing a crash.

With modern technology and good security practices, the person's home network shouldn't be that vulnerable, provided that everything is set-up in the events that something like this does happen. Although, I don't exactly know the security of every home network in the world, as network-providers differ between countries, and they also adopt different technologies, and have a different way of doing things and setting-up these networks. Thus' security will differ between the different networks.

I know this is quite a ramble for something that one can "optionally" share here on CF. Although, I doubt anyone will be needing help with an IP unless it's networking, and if they do, I doubt that they'll want to share the IP of their home network. At the very least, consider removing IP Addresses from that list.

I'll take my claim back if you manage to provide a valid example in which one might share their own IP.

It’s staying. I don’t see why there is even a need to remove it. It’s optional, we don’t advise sharing it.

Ah, well okay then. Fine by me.

My apologies for the ramble, but after seeing that, it triggered an alarm in my head. Yes, I know it is optional, but again, an alarm went off in my head, due to my concerns over security(And privacy too, as IP Addresses can be used to get a close idea of where somebody currently lives).

And that’s why we advise not to share it.
