Site Rules & GuidelinesAny 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 into our community, we kindly ask for you just to take a few moments to look over the guidelines of CodeForum.ORG to ensure you and other members have fun and are safe while using our website.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Please do not advertise other developing communities at CodeForum.ORG. You may, however, reference a resource or a tutorial/guide.
  • Do not promote sites on CodeForum; this may include but not limited to forum threads, profile posts, private messaging and or any other affiliation to Code Forum.
    • However, if you are seeking help with your website, app or any other development then you are able to share a link to help you and others solve your issue.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Try to greet new members in the introduction forum! We want to show newcomers that we are a friendly community :)
  • Only one account from the same IP (contact admin for possible exception), one account per person.
  • Questions should only be used for finding solutions to coding problems. You can learn more about Q&A here.
  • You may reply to an old-post if related.
  • Any posts that contain pornography and child pornography will be removed and your account will be permanently banned. Local authorities will be contacted.
  • Posting illegal/null and or hacking scripts is prohibited (Hacking scripts will result in a permanent ban).
  • Any discussions regarding hacking are prohibited.
    No sharing inappropriate pictures.
  • Do NOT just give an answer to a question; give an explanation, facts, share some examples. Code Forum is about learning, it's important that we help each other learn.
  • *NEW* Do not use 'bump' within 24 hours of thread creation, and or if the post has not had any activity for 24 hours.
    • Modifying and or changing a topic and posting a reply with information DOES NOT count toward a bump.
      • 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.
    • 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.
Resources & Media Services
  • All media and or resources published to resources/media must be approved by an administrator before it can be seen publicly.
  • Any posts that contain pornography and child pornography will be removed and your account will be permanently banned. Local authorities will be contacted.
  • Posting illegal/null and or hacking scripts is prohibited (Hacking scripts will result in a permanent ban).
  • If you plan on buying resources be sure that the resource exists first and that it meets your expectations.
    • Report if you get scammed to administration immediately and contact your bank; scamming will result in account restriction.
  • *NEW* Posting of 'paid' services and goods is prohibited. We are a free community.

We hope you enjoy your stay and if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact any staff member. This post will remain "Unlocked" if members wish to ask questions regarding these guidelines.

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?
