Guide & Rules

To ensure all visitors (registered and unregistered) a peaceful and safe environment, read the rules and guides on this page carefully. If during reading you notice inconsistencies or have questions about it, do not hesitate to communicate with us. In addition to being in English, this page has also been written in Italian for pure personal patriotism. I also remind Italian friends that it can also be published in their own language as long as the rules set out below are respected. (Italian Guide)

General Rules

The rules are few and very simple, if they are not respected the staff has no problem keeping you out.

  1. Insults, offensive words and discriminatory and racial attitudes or texts are prohibited in the comments.
  2. It is forbidden to carry out any form of spamming in comments, messages and publications. For the latter it is allowed to communicate links only in reference to the final content as long as it is not a web page managed by third parties.
  3. It is forbidden to make or use multiple accounts for themselves or for others. The system detects the IP addresses of registered users. If you find different usernames but with identical IPs you risk being permanently expelled from the site.
  4. It is forbidden to create publications that contain pedo-pornographic material or not inherent to the official topic of this website.
  5. It is forbidden to insert in the publications parts of the text that are not cured at least within the limits allowed by social learning.
  6. It is forbidden to ban or delete a registered user without valid demonstrable reason. All message and comment services are recorded in order to be re-read in case of need by the public security authorities. Therefore also the owner has access to verify the right cause of a ban or deletion of a user.
  7. It is forbidden to make several identical publications or with identical contents by a single registered user.

* Software and Computer Card publications are particularly subject to text checks. Therefore it is recommended, if you intend to publish sources of the same theme, to keep a common line.

* For Software and Computer Cards if more identical publications are presented by different users, the most complete and detailed one will be kept and the others will be eliminated. This is to ensure greater attention from those who publish and a complete and clear consultation for other visitors.
