I Care Forum Rules
Welcome to the "I Care Forum". In order to make your stay as pleasant and helpful as possible Please take a moment to review these rules before posting; If you don't follow the rules, you may receive warnings or even be permanently deleted or banned. If at any time you feel confused about the rules, please contact a forum moderator, and they'd be happy to help you.
Use English Only:
  • Please use proper English language, this forum is for English only.
  • Use Standard English including capitalization and punctuation, to the best of your ability.
  • DO NOT use "chat speak" or "SMS/text/message" abbreviations.
  • Any post, topic, poll as well as anything publicly displayed on the forum (i.e. profiles, member titles, avatars, signatures, etc) not use the English language, and then member(s) account and post will be deleted permanently without any notice.
Where To Post:
The forum is split into different category, with each category having its own one-line description on the page. Please try to choose the most suitable category for your new topic, and please post your topic in only one category.

If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong category, or if the post is a violation of our rules then please contact a moderator either via PM (private message) or the "report to moderator" feature; please do not respond publicly to the member - a member of staff will do what is required upon contact. Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another category) will be sent a PM (private message) warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions.

Search before posting a new topic:
Please always use the "Search box" in the upper right from the main forum or click on "Search" button from the navigation/menu bar before posting a new topic. There may well be existing posts/threads on what you're looking for. If you find an existing post/thread on a particular topic but it is old and doesn't answer your question, please add your post/thread to the end of that post/thread rather than starting a new one.

If you still can't find what you are looking for, please do feel free to post, if you have any trouble using the search form or the forum; please feel free to send a PM (private message) to a moderator.
Unacceptable Material:
The following items are banned from the forum and if anyone posting them, his/her account and post will be deleted permanently without any notice.
  • No Profanity
  • No Pornography
  • No Marketing / Advertising / Spamming
  • No Personal Attacks, Threats, Harassment or Intimidation
  • No Illegal Material
  • No Hacking / Illegal Downloading / Cracking
Respect other members:
Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. You have the right to disagree with that opinion. You do not have the right to be rude, vulgar, or disrespectful in expressing your opposition. Flaming will not be tolerated.
Do not post "offensive" posts, links or images:
Do not post anything which is offensive, hateful, racist, sexist, discriminatory, obscene, vulgar or in violation of local or international laws.
NO Spam:
Spam can be one of many things:
  • Posting the same message repeatedly
  • Posting nonsense
  • Going off the topic in a thread and not contributing to the discussion
  • Double or triple posting within 5 minutes of each other
  • Spam is not simply posting too often. Spam is posting a lot without contributing anything and without a useful goal. If a moderator feels you are spamming, you will not be tolerated and may be grounds for account deletion and banning.
Product Marketing/Advertising:
Marketing/Advertising, commercial-related or competing products are all forbidden in any relation to your account in this forum.
No Bumping:
Do not bump posts. Bumping a post to "the top" does not help your topic get noticed. The volunteers who try to answer questions look for those without replies first. If you bump a post, then it disappears from the "No Replies" view. DO NOT BUMP.
Do not post copyright-infringing material:
Do not upload, attach, or post any copyrighted material without getting a written permission from the owner of that material.

Any posts or material found in violation of this rule will be edited or deleted, and the poster warned or possibly banned; at the moderation team's discretion.
Only one person may use a forum account. Account sharing is not allowed, so please keep your password secure.
Please keep your signature as short and concise as possible. If a moderator considers your signature too large, moderator can ask you to edit your signature until it is an appropriate size. If the person does not edit their signature within 72 hours of their notice, then the moderator will completely remove the signature.
Misuse of Forum:
You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Forum, other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to Forum, through hacking, password mining or any other means, nor may you give such unauthorized access to others through your account. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available through the Forum. A user violating these rules will be permanently banned without any notice.
Please note that these rules apply to all the members and their posts/threads, polls as well as anything publicly displayed on the forum (i.e. profiles, member titles, avatars, photos, signatures, etc).
