2. When creating your own post in the form of a topic, please choose the appropriate forum and give it a clear and concise title.

4. This is a public forum, so please consider very carefully before posting your own personal information. Posting personal information of anyone else is a major violation of the rules of conduct for this forum and will result in the deletion of the topic/reply and a warning
