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