Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Forum.paypalworld.com. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. 1.No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote 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.

    DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers

    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” 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. Use common sense while posting.
    This is a web site for accountancy professionals.

    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 PM users asking for help
    Do not send 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.

    General Posting Guidelines
    We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.

    2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use “stupid” topic names
    PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).

    Here is a good example of a way to post a question

    “How to prevent paypal limitation”
    or
    “where to get fully verified PayPal accounts”

    Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor
    Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as
    “if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.

    General Forum Questions
    Am I allowed more than one account?
    No, there is no reason why you should have more than one account at forum.paypalworld.com. If you are banned from the forums, please do not create a new account. If you continue to create new accounts after you have been banned, your IP address will be blocked from the forums.

    What happens if I break a rule?
    If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent.

    The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.



    What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?
    Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin.

    Where can I find out who is in charge?
