Posting policies discussion

General rules for the whole Programmer's Heaven site:

- All messages that are racist, sexist, insulting or containing a link to illegal content will be deleted and may lead to a user ban.


The posting policies specific for the C/C++ boards:

1.) Only post C or C++ related messages.
2.) Nothing ethnically, racially, or verbally offensive.
3.) All code should be inside the [leftbr]code[rightbr], [leftbr]/code[rightbr] tags.
4.) No job offers on this messageboard. Use the Job Messageboard for that.
5.) Don't ask us to do your job / homework for you. Please either ask a specific question or post the code you are having trouble with.
6.) Please avoid using subjects such as 'HELP!' and 'newbie question'. A descriptive subject like 'When starting Xwindows I get error "xyz"' will probably get attention a lot sooner.

    Dear Lundin,

    I would like to suggest to add these rules to the posting policy:
    - Do not ask for complete programs (for example: could someone please post the complete code of a MMORPG program?)
    - Do not ask users to reply to a private email adress (for example: could someone please email me to someone@somecompany.com?)
    But no problem if you refrain from adding them :-).

    Thanks for your moderation,

    Ack, that thread was supposed to be locked... The PH moderator interface is so incredibly buggy, ironically.

    : - Do not ask for complete programs (for example: could someone
    : please post the complete code of a MMORPG program?)

    This is covered by the code begging policy. I try to actively delete such threads.

    : - Do not ask users to reply to a private email adress (for example:
    : could someone please email me to someone@somecompany.com?)

    If they are begging for code, they will have their posts deleted. If they are trying to sell something, I'll direct them to the advertising part of the site. All commercial content will be removed unless they pay PH for it.
