The Forum Rules

(These are the same rules you agree to during the account registration process.)


[list type=decimal]
[*]Treat your fellow posters with respect. No flaming, no fighting, no name calling. If you have a disagreement, act like an adult and talk it out or just ignore it.
[*]Do no harass fellow members. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.
[*]Do not post spam/junk/advertisements, or self-promotion / marketing of your commercial venture. (Representing your own commercial venture in a customer service capacity is fine, just please do not post marketing material.)


Your first 5 posts will be moderated before appearing on the site, and any violation of the registration agreement found will near guarantee that your membership will be revoked.

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law.

You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

If you are here to represent a product, company, business venture, partnership, or have any other commercial intent, you MUST contact a moderator or administrator prior to posting indicating your status. You will be marked as a 'Vendor', but not otherwise restricted from posting (in fact, unlike other forums you will have full access and posting rights just like every other member.) This is simply to let other members and readers know that you are affiliated with a commercial entity.

FXGears is a broker/business friendly, but marketing strict, forum. That means brokers and commercial entities are welcome to have their employees represent their company on the forums in a customer service related capacity. However, you may not use the forums as a marketing platform unless explicitly authorized to do so by FXGears administrators in advance of any marketing material being posted. In other words, brokers/businesses may interact with their clients here, but not promote.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

These terms are subject to change without notice.
The forums rules are concise and straightforward - even thoughtful and considerate. This is a great reminder of what should be done and what shouldn't be done. Thanks for this.
