Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on HMASN/Hawaii ArednMesh. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Forum rules

    Please do not link to warez, cracks, or any other material that does not respect copyright. No support will be provided to such sites.
    Please don't post on this site recruiting for personal projects or offer services outside of our Wanted! forum. We consider this to be spam. If you would like to recruit people, use the Wanted! forum or PM a community member whose signature explicitly allows you to.
    Report any posts you feel contradict our policies by using the "post report" feature and the Community Team will handle them as needed. Please do not reply to these posts yourself.

    Community support is offered on the board, in Discord, Mattermost, and IRC. Please do not contact Team Members or other community members for support unless asked to do so.
    Please note that "bumping" your topic by replying directly after your own post is only allowed after six hours have elapsed since your last post. Please edit to add additional information instead.
    All staff and community members are volunteering their time to support you. Please consider this before posting.
