GENERAL FORUM COMMANDMENT - No posting of spam, adult material, cracks or serial sites. Doing so will cause deletion of same and banishment of the Poster. Remember: If you think something might be against the rules, it probably is!
Our Forum Rules
- Be polite to your fellow Avant users. This is a family oriented forum and any language which may be found offensive will not be tolerated. Any foul language or abusive posts will result in immediate deletion of the offending post and a warning to the poster. Repeated usage will result in a lifetime ban for the poster.
- Treat the staff and Anderson with respect. The members of the staff are donating their time, and as such, often have other things to do. No one is paid to be here. If we do not reply to your post immediately or just don't have the answer, don't go ballistic, just be patient.
- Make sure to search the forum for things you want to post about. If they have already been posted and you start a new post on them, the new post will likely be locked or deleted. Many times, you might find the answer to your questions by reading our F.A.Q. forum or looking in our Master Request/Suggestion List.
- Post different requests, questions, or bugs in separate threads.
- Post on topic. Do not post requests in the Bugs forum or current events in the Help forum. This will help everyone find what they are looking for.
- Use descriptive titles to allow people browsing the forum to easily find what they are looking for. "Problem with Adding Favorites" is much better than "A few problems..."
- Also, be descriptive when reporting a bug. Explain the issue completely and include important information. i.e. Avant Version, OS, IE version, other running programs, etc. (or refer to the information in your accurate, up-to-date profile). This will help others determine the cause of and possibly duplicate your problem. Don't be shocked if you don't get many responses to your issue without this information!
- About Your Profile
- Keep all the items in your profile up-to-date. If you update to a different version of Avant, Windows, or IE, or you switch to a different default rendering engine or skin, update your profile promptly to reflect these changes.
