Howei Forum Rules


Welcome to our Howei forum for fun sharing and social chatter! 


While we do tend to focus on outdoor and sporting activities, our forums are open to any topics and types of discussions, so feel free to express yourself. That said, we do have some rules and guidelines that we humbly request you abide by in order for us all to interact in harmony. 


Thank you and have fun! 


1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promotion in the forums


These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.

Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.


Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.


2. Do not post copyright-infringing material


Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.


3. Do not post offensive or inappropriate posts, links or images


Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. You are advised to use common sense while posting.

4. Do not cross post questions


Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.


5. Do not post or request personal information


Please refrain from posting or asking for personally identifying details such as IC numbers, home addresses, or phone numbers in our forums. 


Your data privacy is important to us and while you are free to share any information that you choose, we ask that you exercise discretion when interacting with anonymous users online. 


Avoid sending private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit. 


6. Remain respectful of other members at all times


All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.


However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.


Report inappropriate content: If you come across content that violates the forum rules, report it to the forum administrators for prompt action. 


Respect the decisions made by forum administrators and moderators. If you disagree, you can discuss it privately with them.


We will regularly review and update these rules and guidelines as needed to maintain a healthy and welcoming community here at Howei. Thank you for your cooperation.
