General Forum Rules
Topics and Posts:
- Search the boards before you post to see if your question has already been asked/answered.
- Stay in one Topic - until your problem is resolved. This will help us to help you.
- Pick a decent Subject title for your Topic or Post - "wtf is it doing", "question", "dare ya" and "help" are not reasonable titles.
- Topic Subjects or Posts in all CAPS are difficult to read, and will be deleted by a member of staff.
- Don't open multiple new Topics on the same Subject in different Subforums. Choose a Subject, choose a Subforum
- If you feel you have put a Topic in the incorrect Subforum contact a member of the team who will more than happily assist you
- A staff member will send you a Private Message (PM) with the contents of your Post immediately prior to deleting it.
- Read through your post, if there is swearing / quoted swearing this will result in the staff:
Issuing a Warning to the poster
Deleting the swearing from the post and Locking the post from editing by the poster.
Closing the Topic (Locking the Topic to prevent additional posts)
Banning repeat offenders
- Acronyms are included as swearing. For example: PITA, WTF, and POS.
- Swearing is only allowed in the "Off-Topic" Forum/Subforum
- Do not initiate or participate in Post or Topic discussions directed at forum members which include:
- Do not quote the hateful or disrespectful sections of a post.
- Posting, or linking to, sites whose sole intention is selling members products unrelated to Archos products is Spam, including: Shoes, Clothes, Handbags, Cell phones, etc.
- Spamming, even once, results in a permanent ban.
- Don't reply to Spam, if you suspect Spam select the ! link in the bottom right side of the Post Area. Replying to spam causes more work for moderators and will result in a warning.
- No Warez. This includes warez:
Requests for help in getting illegal software or copyrighted material
- If you register just to promote a malicious website link in your profile you will be permanently banned.
- A link to a product to inform members where they may get a useful product may not be Spam. For example: A link to a screen protector or USB cable or a useful Android App.
- Use the Competitors Subforum of the General Forum for detailed discussions of, and comparisons with, Archos Competitors' products.
- Do not Troll on the Forums. This includes
Posting only to increase your post count
Trying to deliberately create a flame war
For regular forum users the above is not new. This is the common state on just about every good message board. So I hope you understand that this is just to keep this place what it is --> a fantastic place for all kind of Archos users that need help with their precious. In that context, I'd like to thank all the moderators for an awesome job Thanx guys!!

PLEASE READ THE RULES EVERYONE
I'd like to make this as clear as possible
IF YOU OPEN MULTIPLE THREADS FOR THE SAME THING IN DIFFERENT SECTIONS - ALL OF THEM WILL BE DELETED - YOU WILL BE WARNED
SEARCH SEARCH SEARCH SEARCH - IF THERE ARE ACTIVE THREADS ABOUT THE SAME TOPIC - YOUR THREAD WILL BE DELETED IF YOU MAKE ANOTHER ONE
POST YOUR THREAD TITLE AS SOMETHING THAT IDENTIFIES YOUR PROBLEM - IF YOU POST "HELP ME PLEASE" OR ANYTHING SIMILAR - YOUR THREAD WILL BE DELETED - YOU WILL BE WARNED
USING TERMS SUCH AS "F***", "F'in", "S***", AND OTHERS LIKE THAT ARE OBVIOUSLY FOUL LANGUAGE - THERE IS NO REASON TO USE TERMS LIKE THIS WHILE TYPING - THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE TO TYPE - YOUR POST WILL BE EDITED OR DELETED - YOU WILL BE WARNED
These SAME THINGS keep happening all day, every day. I normally just rename the topics, but that is ending. Your thread will be deleted until you make the title something of some relevance to your problem/topic.
I do apologize for the size/bold of my post, but if you aren't doing these things, please continue as normal. I just want to make sure people see this thread, and it would be nice if people actually read it.
