Rules and Posting Guidelines

Here's a few rules and guidelines for all forum members to acknowledge and follow. It's your responsibility to become familiar with them although most are just common sense. This is an educational space for sharing and learning so keep it clean.

Failure to comply may lead to having your post deleted or even being banned from the forum completely. In most cases you'll be issued a warning but this will depend on the severity of the breach.

Remember, posting on the Tasmanian Model Solar Challenge is a privilege, not a right.

What can NOT be posted here?

1. Keep an eye out on your language. Many users are school-aged. Profanities and other obscene language will not be tolerated. Any post or topic title containing these will be either edited to conform or deleted altogether.

2. Usernames, profile pictures, links, images or information that contain any pornographic or religious material, nudity, scams, link farms and product advertisements are a complete no-no. These accounts will be removed immediately.

3. No bullying of any kind is acceptable. By all means feel free to engage in some friendly banter but don't take it too far.

4. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but please keep it civilised. If you're going to issue some criticism then try and keep it constructive. We're here to learn.

5. Let's keep the community focused on stuff that's relevant. No one wants to sift through a bunch of spam that has nothing to do with anything here.

6. For your own safety, don't post personal details such as phone numbers, home or email addresses.

7. Just use some common sense if you're unsure about something.

While there are only a handful of Administrators and Moderators, this forum belongs to everyone. We're not on here 24/7 so are depending on you to help keep the forum in check. If you come across something that breaches site rules or would like a post reviewed it then please report it. This can be done by clicking the little exclamation mark at the bottom right corner of each post.
