|Welcome to the Icecast.org web forums. Before posting here please consider the following:
1. This is a support forum & chat forum, not a place to air grievances about whomever or whatever.
2. If you have a relevant, but controversial matter contribute make sure it's not libellous and it is factual.
3. There's an old human saying... "talk garbage; expect pain". In other words, if you post rubbish, it's going to get removed.
That's it for the official rules. Next up are things to bear in mind as common courtesy to other users, and other information.
1. Sign up for an account. It's much more friendly if people can put a name to the post other than "Guest" and will help others to help you. Accounts are free, and only take a few minutes to complete the process.
2. You want help? Then make sure you give enough information so people can. "it doesn't work" or "it crashed" isn't any use to anyone.
3. There is a preview function before you post. Use it.
4. Don't paraphrase people when you can quote them. It saves on arguments on what people actually said and equally importantly, the context in which it was said.
5. Help us to help you. Please try to use clear English when posting to these forums. Not everyone reading the board has English as their first language. Those of us that do may also deliberately decide not to read posts written in text message speak, so make it easy for people to read.
