Not open for further replies.
Forum Guidelines
  • Thanks for participating in our community. To ensure the best possible experience for all members, we have established some basic guidelines for participation.
  • By joining and using our forum, you agree that you have read and will follow the rules and guidelines set for the platform. Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important guidelines.
  • Do you have any questions? Don't hesitate to ask a staff member or Community Moderator.

Account Guidelines
  • Members may have only one account on this forum. There is no need to have more than one.
  • Abusive or offensive names are forbidden.
  • Member's display names can not be email addresses. This rule is in place to protect you from spam bots who will pick up your email address and spam you.
  • Avatars must be in good taste. This means no vulgar or violent images, pornography, or profanity. Avatars found to be inappropriate will be removed at the staff's discretion.
  • If you no longer have access to the email account listed in your profile, create a new account. We won't update email addresses, and there is no way for us to verify your identity.
  • Use the "Forgot Your Password" link if you forget your password.

Advice for Newbies
  • Forum rules are non-negotiable. Failure to comply will result in an account termination. In simple terms, you will be banned if you break the rules.
  • If you are new, lurk before posting to get a feel for each forum and what is and is not acceptable there.
  • If you have questions, check out the Member Questions Forum. If your question is unanswered, post it and wait for a response.

Posting Guidelines
  • Search before writing. Many topics already exist. Avoid repetition by using the search function first.
  • Choose meaningful headlines when creating new topics. Add keywords so others can find your post.
  • Stay on topic. While an off-topic remark can occur even with subject-oriented topics, these comments shouldn't be the main component of a posting.
  • Formulate your questions and answers precisely and understandably.
  • The posting of any copyrighted material on our forum is strictly prohibited.
  • Posting links to generate affiliate commissions is not permitted at BlackHatForums.
  • No posts will be meant to offend or hurt any other member in an offensive or inflammatory manner.
  • Spamming is not permitted. Please keep all your posts as constructive as possible.
  • Posts may be deleted for any reasons the forum administrators deem reasonable.
  • Linking to hate, anti-Semitism, racism, pornography, warez, or other illegal sites is not permitted.
  • Please don't ask us to delete your account or posts. We won't. That would make it too easy for you to return as a different user.

Behavior Guidelines
  • No backseat moderating -- don't try to tell other members what they can and cannot post. Don't tell us who should or shouldn't be banned. Don't tell us who should or shouldn't be allowed to join or post on BHF. If you see behavior that violates the forum rules, report it instead of taking matters into your own hands.
  • Don't whine and complain to us about "trolls." From experience, we know that "troll" usually means someone who disagrees with you philosophically or on specific topics. Disagreeing with you is not against the rules. If the "troll" is breaking a rule, report them. Otherwise, place that member on your ignore list.
  • Bullying and harassing other members of the forum are not allowed.

These rules are general guidelines and flexible. Please don't waste time trying to be clever and circumvent them.
