The following are a general list of forum rules. We ask that you read these rules before posting in the TalkingCity forums. In addition, some individual forums on TalkingCity also have their own rules specific to that forum, which should also be read before posting. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact one of the Staff Members.


General Rules:
While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
Advertising, spamming and trolling (http://members.aol.com/intwg/trolls.htm) is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
Do NOT drag another member's personal site into a forum discussion unless the discussion directly involves that site OR if the member brings his or her own site into the discussion first. There's no point in ruining a good debate by accidentally (or intentionally) offending someone with a personal comment.
DO NOT POST PORN or adult content. This also inludes sites promoting activities such as drug abuse, gambling and links to sites containing such content.
Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed
We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules.
Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted.

Advertising Services

We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products or services. Explicit advertising in sigs is also prohibited.


Links in signatures

Links in signatures must follow these guidelines:
A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial and does not contain product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual. The Megrsioft team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.)
Duplicate links to the same URL in a sig are not allowed.
No links in your signature that point to websites that are either under construction, useless adspace plastered websites or promote spamming of any kind, such as bulk emailing, millions of hits
Promotional text for a commercial product or service is ok, provided there are no price(s) of product(s) or service(s) listed.
No more than1 links per signature
Site linked in signature must related to webmaster theme. We do not allow finance, gambling, pharmacy, health sites etc. in signaturesSignature Size Limits

All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, and you can't have both text and images

For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size
Animated images in sigs are not allowedMultiple Posts
DO NOT post the same topic in multiple forums. If you are unsure of which forum a thread should go under, just state that in your post, and a moderator will move the thread to the correct forum. Multiple posts are unnecessary and will be deleted.
DO NOT post the same question multiple times in multiple threads in the same forum. If no one responds to your question or request, just post a reply to the same message thread again to bring the message to the top of the list so folks notice it.Our SPAM Policy

The Pub forum is where Talking City members Talk about what's on your mind with other likeminded individuals about anything. If you have a question that doesn't fit into any other forum, or just want to chat, this is the place.
