1. No Spam. Spamming can be defined as either posting multiple times about the same thing or starting multiple topics about the same thing. Spamming is also defined as constantly posting off-topic as well as providing links that have nothing to do with the forum or thread at hand. Spam will be deleted without warning.
2. No Slander. While we encourage lively debates and discussions, we will not tolerate personal attacks of any kind. Any person attacking another forum member will receive a warning and have their offensive posts removed. One more offense and the offending member will be permanently suspended from Topklasse.net.au. Any member that physically threatens another member on Topklasse.net.au will result in an automatic suspension immediately. Treat others in your posts as you would like to be treated yourself.

3. No flaming. There is no place for that on these message boards. Topics that are designed to flame another member (defined as an offensive argument that serves no purpose but to make others upset.) will be treated as Spam and deleted without warning.
4. Stay on-topic. There will be some leniency on this, and we don't mind if you bring in another comment or two, but try to stay focused. If you think it's a good enough topic, start a new thread about it. This also prevents losing a good idea amongst a thread about another topic. Threads that wander off-topic will be closed and/or trimmed or moved to its appropriate forum - however as a matter of courtesty, Admin will contact you before action is taken. Off topic threads and posts may be done in Members area and will be allowed to run their course without interference unless deemed necessary, all other sections of the site will be monitored more closely if threads are tending to stray off topic they will be closed, trimmed or both.
