defenceforum.in is an open discussion forum for Indian Armed Forces, it is run by Indians to provide a platform for the diverse Indian people online to express their views and opinion. Although, we respect the principle of free speech, but to maintain a level of high-quality discussion, you must comply by the following rules and regulations before posting anything in this forum.

BE RESPECTFUL

The purpose of the forum is to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being insulting.

PERSONAL ATTACKS ARE PROHIBITED

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts which are designed to personally berate or insult another. Text of this nature is not beneficial to the community spirit and will not be tolerated.

RACISM

No racist posts are allowed or other posts that are designed to put people down based on their nationality/sex/color/creed/etc.

COMMENTS ON MANAGEMENTS DECISION

Don't make posts about a decision made by a moderator or admin that you feel was unfair. If you think it was unfair, PM a person who edited/deleted your post, if that doesn't resolve the problem then contact us.

TROLLING

Trolling is the word used to describe a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting the members of the forum community. Posts of this nature are disruptive and do not convey a friendly attitude.

IMMEDIATE BANNING

The posting of pornography; discriminatory remarks which are sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; excessive obscene or vulgar language; posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned; advertising other websites on our forum.

SPAMMING AND BUMPING

Spam is considered to be repetitive posting of the same text again and again or nonsensical posts that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users. Bumping posts in order to keep them near the top of the list is also prohibited. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome.

REDUNDANT AND DUPLICATE THREADS

As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Keep discussions about one topic to one thread only.


IMPERSONATING

Impersonating another forum user, moderator, staff, administrator, or member is prohibited. You are expressly forbidden from impersonating anyone else, including those named above, on the forum. This may be grounds for permanent loss of your account.

ADVERTISEMENTS

Advertisements and spams through any feature of the website are considered serious offense. Posts discussing or linking to your own site or other defense forums are prohibited.

PROFANITY

Using partial masking (such as asterisks or punctuation marks) to byp*** the profanity filter is prohibited and will result in the same action as if the actual word had been typed.

NEWS AND INFORMATION

You must give credit to online newspapers by posting their article with link. The link should be in the end of the post to keep the professionalism, and better if you quote the news, so members can easily tell which one are your own words and which ones aren't. Also bold the title and make it in red color to make it look perfect. Understand FAIR USE.

MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS

After violating multiple rules and getting banned multiple times you may get banned permanently. In that case you might be looking for another account. Please know that multiple accounts are prohibited and we will track you. So just abide by the rules and post constructively and nothing will happen.

ONE-LINERS

The rules have been put into place to make the forum act like a serious forum. ONE-LINERS are prohibited in every section of the forum except member’s club and introduction forum. Please also look at the spamming rule.

RELIGIOUS DISCUSSIONS

Religious discussions are not allowed. Sharing sacred texts for discussions and debate is not allowed.
