Update
So, I have a few friends who are active on the forum and have moderation rights. So, I am not the only one here now who gets to decide who stays or who goes.

About the right to ban/suspend members.
I reserve the right to ban/suspend/restrict any member on the forum. This is not a democratic platform where you have a right to challenge a ban. Just like a restaurant has the right to reject service to annoying customers, I retain the right to tell you to leave.

About the ads and other modes of revenue generation.
I run Google AdSense, affiliate links and some other ever changing ad platforms. The point about affiliate links is important because I might edit your posts to add/change links.

If you are tired of seeing content from the account IBF in your view... You can hide it by adding the account to your Ignore list here: https://broadbandforum.co/account/ignored

About running ad blockers on this forum.
I get annoyed by members who complain that changes I made on the forum was interfering with their ad-free browsing experience. So do not get surprised if you are banned for being that guy.

If you want me to disable ads on your account, just ping me... I would do that 🤪

About getting your account deleted.
I would probably not mind deleting your account. I might however not delete the content posted by you because it affects the overall structure of the forum and conversations. If there are posts that contains content that affects you, send me links through the proper channel and I would do the needful (remove personal identifying content etc.).

Be nice. This is currently my most important requirement from all members. Just be nice to each other. If someone is annoying you, and you cannot be nice, ignore. If someone is being stupid, and you cannot be nice, ignore. We are going through a global pandemic, the least we can do is to be nice to each other.

About content that is allowed or disallowed here.
I do not like personal promotions. If you are here just to post about your new website or tool, I would probably remove your content and ban your account. If you do have a useful tool and you are looking for feedback or you are willing to respond to user queries and bug reports, I would be more than happy to accommodate that.
I do not like content that infringes on copyrights. This include software, music, movies, eBooks etc. Discussion about content is all right. Sharing content that you do not own? Nope. Do not even link to file sharing and torrent websites.
Since I run my own affiliate links on the forum, I do not allow affiliate links from members. The reason is simple… If I allow one person to do it, this forum would attract people who would join only to post their own affiliate links. You probably have a personal blog or Facebook/Twitter account right? Use that.
I also require you to be nice to other folks on the forum. Trolling is not appreciated. Abusive language is not tolerated. Personal attacks are not welcome at all.
I also do not like useless signatures that add no value to the forum. This include speedtest images.
I also have little tolerance for outdated views and beliefs. Do not be surprised if I ask you to leave the forum in specific cases like these.
Do not create duplicate threads. Do not post the same content in multiple threads. If you are here to leave a rant that you are replicating on x number of other outlets, please leave us out of it.

File uploads are now enabled. Here are the current conditions...

Maximum size: 8192KB
Extensions supported: jpg png jpeg pdf firmware tar bin

If there is a large file that needs to be uploaded for sharing on the forum (and you do not want to use a third party service), ping me and I would manually upload it for you.

Images are resized to 1600x1600 so if you want to share an image which should be posted in original size, use a third-party service like Imgur.

----

About sharing photos, videos and other kinds of files.
Here are some web services that you can use to share files:
For images: Imgur
For videos: YouTube, Streamable, Vimeo
For other files: Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox
For audio files: SoundCloud, Clyp
For code/text content: Pastebin/GitHub Gist/Notepad.pw

If you are on Windows, I recommend installing this fantastic app named ShareX.

Update: Imgur made it hard to access BBCODE a while ago. As a result, a lot of users end up having issues with their links. So I made a short video highlighting how to access BBCODE on Imgur.

How to use Imgur?

About restricted rights of new members.
Some features might be disabled for new members. This is to prevent spammers from annoying members of this forum through private messaging.

About maintaining sanity in conversations.
Write a sensible thread title. Titles like Need Help/Help Me does not help anyone.
Please avoid using quote feature when you are responding to the active conversation. Quotes are better used when you are responding to a specific message earlier in the thread (or you are breaking your response into parts by responding to parts of the previous message). If a discussion is active, adding a quote just adds Noise to the flow of the thread.
Please avoid using formatting when not required. This is especially important when you are copy pasting from another source. Use Control+Shift+V for pasting content without formatting.
