This document is designed to clarify various responsibilities for all those participating in our Home School Community Forums. If you are looking for Home School support and encouragement, you have come to the right place. To make this community a fun place for everyone, we encourage you to follow these rules & guidelines:

Arrow Forum-Wide Policies

  1. Forum Rules
    1. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be given a warning.
    2. Before posting a question and/or reply, please review all other posts in the forums as your question/thought may have already been posted/addressed. You may also use the forum's Search facility to look for similar posts to yours before posting.
    3. All members of these forums participate voluntarily and these forums are free - as such, do not demand anything from anyone at anytime. Be patient for answers and do not double-post your question.
    4. Members should post always in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning and/or permanent ban from participating in these forums.
    5. Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderators Team. Only do this if a moderator team member has not replied within 6 hours.
    6. Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting of any offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and any offenders will be immediately banned and their posts removed.
    7. Members are asked to respect all copyright laws, sites, media, etc. There is to be no re-printing of material without permision from the respective original authors. Offenders will receive a warning and their post will be removed.
    8. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([img][/img]) image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.
    9. Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.
    10. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; "Help me!", "Look at This!", "I've got an error!", etc. Examples of good titles include; "Needing Help with XYZ", "Any Ideas on ABC", etc.
    11. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering products or services for $, posting of "reviews" by product developers/company employees, etc. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed.
    12. The administrator, moderating, support and other team members reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users.
    13. The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revokation of private messaging.
    14. Message body links to offensive sites will not be tolerated and will be immediately removed and the offender banned from participating in these forums.

  2. Signatures
    1. Signatures may contain up to five lines (one line being that displayed on a browser opened to 800px width) of text (of small or normal size) and/or one image, valid combinations include; a single image of no more than 60px high, 468px wide and 6KB in size. Signatures containing an image this large may also include one line of small size text. Signatures containing an image of 30px high may include up to three lines of small size text or two lines of normal size text. Images of 15px height or less may allow up to three lines of normal size text or four lines of small size text.
    2. Text sizes should be between 9 and 12 (small and normal). Text in signatures is subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, warez, emoticons, etc.
    3. Links are not permitted in signatures.
    4. Users abusing these rules will be warned.

  3. Avatars
    1. Users are permitted to utilise a gallery avatar or to link to or upload one of their own (subject to previous points on misuse of bandwidth). User defined avatars are to be no larger than 90 pixels square, contain no animation, contain no image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status here (e.g. mimiking ranks or copying avatars of team members), may not exceed 6KB in filesize and have a consistently high availability (i.e. links to images on slow servers or those prone to failure may be removed).
    2. Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, etc.
    3. Users abusing these rules will be warned and/or may lose their avatar privileges and/or may be banned from participating in these forums.
