  • Don't spam
  • Don't post pointless crap
  • Don't be shady

If you can do that, your stay here will be easy and long.


"Spam" is a pretty big catch all for posting things that overly promotional in nature. This can be traditional spam like Viagra or iPhones for cheap, but it can also be less blatant things like posting something just to drop a link into your post or asking questions about something you already know the answer to (for example if you worked at a web hosting company in New York and you start a thread asking people where to get web hosting in New York).
Don't direct users to your signature link. If someone actually needs whatever you have in there, they will see it on their own (or if you really must, you can send them a private message about it).
For the most part affiliate links are considered spam... You *can* have them in your signature (but not within a post).
Things related to spamming other sites are not allowed (selling blog commenting, YouTube/Facebook "Likes" for example). A good rule of thumb would be to not sell a service that involves a site you don't own.
"Signature" links that aren't actually in your signature (in the body of a post) are not allowed.
Attempts to artificially manipulate any of our systems can be seen as spam (for example if you "like" a zillion posts that are not really likable).

Pointless Crap

First and foremost, this is an English speaking site (this means all public posts must be in English). If your English isn't that good, you are welcome to hang out, but please don't post something in poor English just for sake of posting. If you have a *legitimate* post, ask a friend to help you translate your post/question before posting it. Ask yourself these questions.

  • Did you just copy/paste your post or did you actually take the time to write it?
  • Is your post understandable to someone who speaks English? Even better would be if it's actually grammatically correct.
  • Does your post have any value to anyone other than the thread starter (if not, just send them a private message)? This includes things like posting publicly that you sent them a private message (they already know... the system notifies them). If you answered "No" (or even "Maybe") to any of those questions, simply don't post whatever it is.


Pretty normal things apply to not being deceptive.

  • Are you doing anything that could be considered illegal? This includes (but not limited to) things like selling/distributing warez, offering hacking services, etc.
  • Are you lying to someone about anything? This could be as simple as your geographical location (if you are in Nigeria, don't make claims that you are in California). We actually don't care where people are from, but we don't like liars (from anywhere). On a side note - cricket is an insect, not a sport.
  • Shilling - don't "help a friend out" by pretending to be a customer or giving them an "unbiased" review. If you don't know what it is, read about it on Wikipedia.
  • Duplicate Accounts - there are no circumstances whatsoever where we allow duplicate accounts (you may not have a "personal" and "business" account for example). Duplicate accounts can be multiple accounts you created, multiple accounts you use, etc. We don't allow shared accounts either (so don't let anyone use your account). There are no "business" accounts and accounts are non-transferable (if someone is an employee somewhere, the individual "owns" the account, not the business). In case we aren't being clear enough, you are allowed to create (and use) one account in your lifetime (if you are reincarnated, you still must use the account you created in your previous life).

Creating New Threads

For the most part, this should be common sense, but in case it's not...

  • Start threads in the most relevant forum category.
  • Don't create empty posts that contain nothing but a link (if you are going to link to a news article for example, give a summary of it in your own words). Be careful when linking to sites you are affiliates with, as it may cross the lines into self-promotion/spamming.
  • Unless it's earth shattering news (the discovery of intelligent life on another planet would qualify for example), don't post press releases.
  • Don't post personal attacks against other members. Take up whatever your issue you have with them privately. The world probably doesn't care that you don't like Joe.
  • Search before you post a new thread, because there's a good chance someone already posted it. We don't need 50 threads letting everyone know Michael Jackson died... One is enough.


This also should be common sense, but some of the things people like to try and do that isn't allowed...
  • Don't post in threads just to "bump" them to the top of the list of threads. If you would like to push your thread to the top, simply use the "Bump" link within the first post of any thread you started.
  • Don't hijack threads/topics. This includes (but not limited to) purposely changing the subject, posting in someone's sales thread to offer your opinion (like "great design" or "unlimited hosting is a scam" when you have no intention of buying).
  • Don't post things that have no relevance to anyone other than who you are replying to (for example posting "PM Sent" or something along those lines is not necessary because the system already alerts them). If you really want to let someone know you sent them a private message, tell them in an extra private message to them.
  • Don't be lazy and "post offers". Do not reply to threads with your copy and paste offers (including "check out this thread", "check my signature", or "I have a blog, interested?"). Instead, take the time to send a worthwhile PM to your potential business client. Copy/paste posts, junk posts, and other ambiguous replies will be treated as spam and will be deleted, wasting your time and ours. We may also issue spam warnings which could very quickly lead to a ban.
  • Don't mask your links with a URL that redirects the user. If you want to link to something, link to the actual page. This includes affiliate links which are only allowed in signatures (not posts).
  • Don't post stuff that is a copy/paste. We don't have any need for duplicate content/plagiarism.

Use Caution

The marketplace is a "use at your own risk" setup. We will not get involved in disputes between members. Remember you are buying things from random people on the Internet that you don't know (people on the Internet can pretend to be anything they want... in reality they might be a homeless scammer that lives under a bridge, jacking someone's open WiFi). Again... use an Online escrow service whenever possible for things that the seller has to deliver (domains, sites, custom work, etc.)If you think something isn't covered here, it doesn't necessarily mean it's allowed (if you think it's something that we may not allow, ask before posting it). If something sounds too good to be true, it is.
