Forum Rules


Forex Tips - Forex Forums FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

General

If you would like to suggest a rule be changed, deleted or added, please use the Suggestions & Feedback forum.

These rules are here to help new members and the staff of Forex Tips to help identify those that are going against the grain. The rules are very straight forward and very fair. Please follow them. If you are doing something that isn't directly against the rules but it is going against the spirit of the rules, infraction or ban can still occur.

PLEASE NOTE:

USER NAMES MUST BE BETWEEN 3 AND 15 CHARACTERS LONG. YOU ARE PROHIBITED FROM USING AN EMAIL ADDRESS AS YOUR USER NAME.

Rules are subject to change at any time. Make a note of this thread and visit it often to make sure no rules have changed.

Infractions

We have an infraction system in place that provides an escalation path. The more you break the rules, the more severe the penalty becomes. Our infraction system is as follows:

  • 1 infraction is just a warning
  • 2 infractions will cause you to only be able to view threads. You won’t be able to post or PM for 10 days.
  • 3 infractions is a 10 day ban
  • 4 infractions is a permanent ban

Advertising / Spam

Offenses such as advertising or spamming could result in a loss of posting abilities or even an account ban, depending on how serious the offense.

It is NOT ok to come to the site and begin immediately posting threads about your services or offerings. These threads will be closed and any reference to your company name or link will be removed.

If you would like to advertise your services to our members, please CLICK HERE.

Signatures

Signatures must remain clean and can contain links that represent your services, only if you have visited http://www.forextips.com/advertising and signed up for a Broker Package.

Admins and Mods are the only ones who are automatically authorized to include links in their signatures.

Linking to Other Sites

Sometimes a story is warranted to link to another site for credit or for full story. This is ok for news related items.

You are not allowed to post something along the lines of: "Check out this Forex Broker - (LINK)"

Do not create posts about a story and link it back to your post. You may, however, quote part of the story and then link it to the location of the full story/original source.

You may not add link(s) to your own site or services. If your post includes your analysis of any data, then your post must include the full analysis. Linking the post to another site to obtain more information about the analysis is not allowed. You may only use your signature to link others to your site or services, and can only do this after you have visited http://www.forextips.com/advertising and signed up for a Broker Package.

No PM's to Mods or Admins

DO NOT PM Mods about helping you with your special situation. They are busy enough. They are not going to get to you any faster. If you post in the forum, chances are the more experienced members will get to you and help out.

This way, everyone can benefit. This is a forum, not a private message haven so that you can get your own private issue resolved. PM should only be used to send private information to someone else.

No Spamming

No Spamming is allowed on this site, under any circumstance. This also includes using PM’s to send people invites or messages that were not asked for. Spamming may result in an account ban. If you see any spam on the site, please send a PM to FX Destiny and report it, or simply CLICK HERE. When reporting spam, please include the link or description to where the spam is located on the site. The reported spam will then be reviewed, and applicable enforcements will be applied by the Admin.

One User, One Account

Please only sign up for one ForexTips account, unless you are unable to access your account as a result of forgetting your login information and do not have access to your personal email to reset your username and/or password. This way, we will be able to keep an accurate count of the members in our database and will not have a site that is clogged up with fake or inactive accounts.

Disclaimer

Investments in Foreign Exchange speculation may be susceptible to sharp rises and falls as the relevant market values fluctuate. Not only may investors get back less than they invested, but in the case of higher risk strategies, investors may lose the entirety of their investment. It is for this reason that when speculating in such markets, it is advisable to only use risk capital. Some statements represent hypothetical trading results for the period indicated, and were obtained using approved systems developed exclusively by MTI. Simulated results do not represent actual trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Individual results vary, and nothing can guarantee that clients will or are likely to achieve profits, or incur losses, comparable to those described.
