We are an English/Mandarin speaking community. You can post any posts in English/Mandarin as long as we understand what you are trying to say. Ok, let's talk about rules. Rules is important even though sometimes I don't like it either but without rules, everything will be a mess!
Following are some of the simple and reasonable rules for you to follow.
MOST IMPORTANT: R E S P E C T
"When you respect others, others will respect you back"
Treat everyone with respect, whether they deserve it or not, and always be civil.
1) No Spam / Advertising
Advertising of any commercial product or service on these forums is not permitted. Chain letters and pyramid schemes are similarly prohibited.
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Use common sense while posting.
3) Offensive Content
Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense. We want to show this website to our family members.
Posting a thread in more than one forum is annoying and thus not allowed. Just post it once in the correct place.
5) Agree to disagree
Differing opinions and viewpoints are welcome. But do not belittle or insult those who do not agree with your opinion. Arguing will not be permitted.
6) Don't take things personally or out of context
Realize that we are an international community and various common words or phrases can have completely different meanings in different societies.
