Forum Etiquette

Search First

We have a powerful search system and what you are asking may have already been answered. This will save you time from waiting for a reply. Before you post, visit our search page. If you have too many results, try limiting the date to the last 6 months.

Pick the proper forum

Your question will get answered much quicker if you take a minute and pick the most appropriate forum for your post.

Keep your post on topic

Please try not to stray from the discussion topic, especially in the technical threads when possible. If you are straying off into a new topic, start a new thread for it. If necessary, make good use of the Lite & EZ forum for chit chatting.

Be patient

Give new members some slack, don't chastise them for not reading this guideline first. Make them feel welcome into the community. We were all newbies once. Avoid sarcasm, it's often lost in the post and just ends up being rude.

Do not use abbreviations & dialects

MCF is a public forum with members of all races as well as foreigners. So, kindly be considerate and use proper English with punctuations. Posts with excessive use of abbreviations & dialects will be locked and removed; the poster also receive a warning or be banned.

Do not post "Smiley" only posts

Posting of extremely short or "Smiley" only posts that are non-constructive in nature are not beneficial to discussions.
Please refrain from posting such posts in the forums. Members who do this excessively will have their posts removed, and receive a warning or be banned.

Do not leave lots of blank lines in your post

Posting with lots of blanks lines will be deleted.

Note that this list is not exhaustive, and will be subject to change as and when required.
