The title should represent the relevance to the forum it is posted in and be clear to other members, so that they know what the topic is about before they open it. We do not expect perfect english on the forum, but please try to avoid grammar mistakes in titles. If you do not know how to spell a word, please use a dictionary.

Warning System
Warning system is a feature of the board for the moderators to keep track of offensive, bad or spamming posters. The scale varies from 0 to 3, with 0 as a default. There is no certain rules for what reasons and what level of warning you may get penalized, because moderators will use warning system at their own discretion, however if you notice that you've been unfairly punished, please contact the admin with your complaint for review. Moderators have to state a reason for what you have been warned or decreased in warning. Normaly, those members who post along the guidelines of the rules will have no impact. All members can observe their warning status and the reasons in their statistics profiles.

Support Team
* Web site administrator
That's me- FS, in this paragraph I will introduce myself briefly. Here on the site, I will refer myself as Admin or administrator. I am the founder of and web sites. I manage the web sites as well as the forum. Keeping this web site running is not an easy task. Thanks to our members who contribute with their ideas and support. is not my primary work. I have a job in a company just like most of you have, which takes my whole day. I have only weekends to work on the web site, but sometimes like all normal people I take vacations. I have a very limited time, so do not expect a prompt reply from me. Nevertheless I try visiting the forum everyday and read new posts, however it is impossible for me to read all of them as the quantity of posts is relatively large. That is why we have moderators. I am not a native English speaker, so kindly forgive my grammar and vocabulary mistakes. I fully understand English and Russian and a little bit of Turkish and German. You can write me or PM me in one of these languages; however expect my responses only in English. Please feel free to contact me if you have any issues except:
  1. Those answered on this page. It took me hours to write this page for you, so I assume my efforts deserve your 5 minutes attention to read this page. I don't like those who do not like to read the instructions and I will not repeat anything several times.
  2. Sending you files: I will not send you files even if you are about to fail your exam without it. Plan your exam using your brains. If you need the files that badly, then you have a lot of options to get it. Use Google, PM forum members to help you, buy a book from an official web site or finally reschedule your exam.
  3. Helping you to register on the forum. If you are an IT professional or want to become one, then you should be able to use simple logic to register on the forum. Personally, I am yet to explore all the features of the forum.
I simply ignore similar messages by deleting them, so there is no need to waste both your and our time. The best way to contact me is PM. When contacting me, please list all details of the problem: your userid and password if needed, time when it happened, the actions that you perform, the exact error message that you see, etc. If I do not get enough details of your problem I will not look into it or ask you for additional information. Before reporting your issues, try to troubleshoot the problem yourself. Make sure your troubleshooting actions do not harm I try to handle all requests as soon as I can, but please give me at least 2 weekends before I answer your question.

* Moderators
We have few outstanding members of our community who help running the forum by keeping it clean and growing. They are moderators. Moderators monitor all the posts on the forum. They have a right to change, remove, close and pin the posts. They are smart and know a lot about They will be able to help you in many ways. Please refer to any moderator on the forum to resolve your issue. The moderators have a global coverage which means that they can moderate all forums on the board. So if you found a post that needs moderator's attention, the best thing to do is to use "! Report" button on the bottom-left hand corner of the post, the message will be sent to the proper moderator for review.
can warn you if they think that you violated the rules. Please see the paragraph about warnings for details. They can remove or change your posts by your request. If you have any issues with moderators and you think they abuse their rights, please let the admin know about it as soon as possible, do not indulge in an argument with them, although this is least likely to happen.

* Honorary Members
Honorary members have fewer privileges than moderators, but more than regular forum members. Their opinion is treated the same as moderators' opinion. Honorary members are trusted members and have achieved this level by their outstanding personality and hard work demonstrated on They know the rules, they know the policy, and they also moderate a few forums. Moderators and honorary members may recommend other members to be promoted to Honorary member or Moderator status. If you really want to become one, the only requirement is - we have to like you, trust you and be sure that you can be a part of the team.

* Technical Experts
We have nominated a group of technical experts whose task to provide valuable technical advise to other members of the forum. The full list of technical experts can be found here . Any member with a good history on and rich technical experience can apply for this status in a relevant topic in Comments about forum.

Unauthorized advertising or promotion by members is prohibited on the forum. All advertising requests should be sent to the web site administrator for approval. Failure to follow these rules will lead to member's account termination and restriction for further site visits. Currently offers advertising packages. More detailed information can be found on Advertising on

* Posting Links to other web sites
The forum must not be turned into an advertising board. This won't be allowed to happen. Usually links to software and useful study material can be posted, however if linked with the software, it should not carry any danger to users. If the link points to harmful software, this link will be removed as well. The majority of your links will be removed from the forum if you do not follow these rules, please do not post them there if they are not related to the conversation.strong>Keep all links passive - non clickable. It is found easy to use [CODE] tag on the forum for this purpose. In most cases your links will automatically become passive once posted, however if it has not happened, then use the procedure above to format them..

* Where to publish links to my web sites?
The place for certification links is here: We only select those links which will be most of the interest to the visitors. The links are free and do not require any registration procedure, neither for accessing nor adding. Please make sure you follow the mentioned criteria before posting links on the links page.
