FORUM RULES

1. Member conduct

1.1 Language: Metals Mafia is a worldwide community. As a result, what may be OK to say in your part of the world, may not be OK elsewhere. Please don't direct profanity, sexually explicit language or other offensive content toward Members or their work. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.

1.2 Nudity: Metals Mafia is used by people of all ages, including minors. It is unacceptable to post nude or pornographic imagery, which includes the gratuitous depicting of male or female genitalia and / or female breasts.

1.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: Metals Mafia is about sharing, this does not involve virtual yelling (flaming) or rudeness. Flaming or posting with a lack of respect is unacceptable. Treat new members in the manner in which you would like to have been treated when you were a new member. When dealing with any member, provide them with guidance, advice and instructions when you can, showing them respect and courtesy. Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.

1.4 Personal attacks, racial, political and / or religious discussions: Metals Mafia is a discussion forum and market place centered on percious metals. These precious elements are not racial, shouldn't be political, religious or personally offensive and therefore, none of these types of discussions are permitted on Metals Mafia.

1.5 All members are expected to read and adhere to the Metals Mafia rules.

2. Post using a clear and descriptive subject and message

You're most likely to receive a helpful communication and information if you use a short subject title that describes your topic and a message that explains, in detail, what your thread will cover.

3. Use the English language

We understand that with all the different nationalities, not everyone speaks English well, but please try. If you're really unable to post in English, use an online translator. You're free to include your original message in your own language, below the English translation. (This rule covers your posts, profile entries and signature).

4. Create a thread or post a message only once

As a growing forum, we don't need unnecessary clutter. You're free to edit your message as you like, so if you do not receive an answer, revisit your message and see if you can describe your problem better. Not everyone is online at the same time so it might take a while before you receive an answer.

5. Do not spam the forums

  • Please refrain from multiple post on same topic or posting off topic threads to the wrong boards
  • If you wish to advertise a product, simply contact us. We can provide ad and seller rights but you are not permitted to just post it in the forums. If you do, it will be removed
  • You are welcome add updates to your thread (ie new info, products, etc), BUT only update if you are posting relevant to the topic and NOT with the sole purpose of getting the thread to the top of the page (known as "bumping") otherwise it will be considered as spam.
6. Donations

We appreciate all donations to MetalsMafia.com as it helps to keep our forum online and well maintained. As a user, you're allowed to ask for donations in your signature as a thank you for your hard work, however donations up front are not allowed. The general forum is about sharing and not about getting paid to do something... that is what our seller board are for.

7. Don't get us into trouble

Don't post copyrighted or trademarked materials, without proper license, or do other things which will obviously lead to legal trouble. If you wouldn't do it on your own homepage, you probably shouldn't do it here either. This simply means that you cannot break any laws here. Please use common sense: respect the forum, its users and those that produce awesome silver as gold art.

8. Help others if you can

If you see posts from others where you can help out, please do so. This place exists because people are helping each other and share common interest. Even if you are relatively new to the matter, there's probably quite a few people with less experience than you, who could benefit from what you've learned. Don't be shy.

9. Advertising and income generation

Commercial advertising, advertising referral links, pay-per-click links and other income generating methods are forbidden. Metals mafia does provide means of advertising should you be interested simply contact administrator. Do not use Metals Mafia as a means to make money outside of the proper sellers channels.

10. Create only ONE user account

You are allowed ONE User Account at Metals Mafia. If you create additional accounts, Moderators will disable them and your original account may also be disabled or infracted.

11. Keep threads / posts on-topic

Whilst a minor amount of off-topic posting may be overlooked, the general rule is that your posts / threads must be relevant to the Forum / thread in which you are posting.
