Post subject:  Absolute Vorticity Rules

Welcome to Absolute Vorticity!

This is a home to discuss and analyze the latest in the world of weather. In order to keep the forum running smoothly, we have compiled some rules that must be followed.

Be Respectful!
Here at Absolute Vorticity, showing respect to other posters is required. Naturally as humans, we can and will get aggravated or upset at others. However, this is not the place to publicly bash and put-down fellow members.

Stay On-Topic!
Please stay on-topic when posting. Yes, a slight deviation now and then is perfectly fine. However, try to keep that to a minimum, or better yet, create a separate thread to continue the discussion in the appropriate section.

No Plagiarism!
In today's society, it is very easy to find a copious amount of information on any topic. However, do not post that info as you own creation. After all, plagiarism is illegal, and will not be tolerated here at Absolute Vorticity. If posting an article, please post the link and perhaps a brief summary. Please do not post the whole thing.

Please Post Legibly!
Remember, this is not AIM chatting, this is a forum. Please keep IM lingo to a minimum.

No Spamming/Over Advertising
Please do not spam other members or over-advertise. We have a section for weather links, so post your site there.

Politics Section
As human beings, we naturally debate/support different things in life. In the politics section, debates/discussions can get heated at times, which is perfectly fine, unless a rule is broken. This is America and I fully support freedom of speech on this forum. If you don't like what is being said, simply ignore the politics section altogether. If you would like access to the politics section, PM an admin and we will add you.

Following these rules will make Absolute Vorticity run smoothly! If we see any violations, we will edit, delete or move your post. If the rule breaking continues, you will be suspended, banned or deleted. If you as a member see something that is against the rules, please feel free to report it to an admin or moderator. This shouldn't even be an issue, however, as you as a member are required to read the rules before posting.

Thank you for taking time to read our rules. We look forward to interacting with you on the forums! :)

-The Admin Team

Post subject:  NEW RULE!

The admin team and I have discussed a new rule, and are now putting it into full effect. We are going to no longer allow any political refrences in signatures. It is for the best of the forum and its members. Thanks and keep rockin' everyone! :)
