1) Give credit to those that deserve for the content you post on the forum.
2) Keep an open mind.
3) Please remember to use the reputation button to show appreciation by simply clicking the green hand icon as shown in the image below.


Positive Reputation (Positive Vote)
> should be given to people who post meaningful, helpful, and thoughtful posts. Any post that contributes to the thread in a positive way probably deserves positive reputation. This does not mean that you agree with what was said; the point brought up may be completely opposite to what you believe, but it may be a good point nonetheless, and worthy of a pat on the back. Giving positive reputation to someone because they are your friend and deserve to have a few more green dots next to their name probably isn't a good reason to give positive reputation.

Negative reputation (Negative Vote)
> should be given if the person is posting something that detracts from the conversation. If the post is rude, inappropriate, breaks forum rules, is not gracious, etc; these are all good reasons to give negative reputation. If you have a personal grudge with someone, their team, etc, is it not appropriate to give them negative reputation for no reason. Giving negative reputation because you don't agree with what was said is not an appropraite use of the reputation system. People are entitled to their own opinions, and just because you don't agree doesn't mean the user was wrong or not contributing to the conversation.

for Signatures:

1) You are allowed to use 1 signature only.
2) Signature Dimension sizes will be limited to a total height of 150 pixels and a width of 400 pixels. for more info: news-announcements/tpf-signature-rules-t2985.html

Consequences of breaking rules:

Moderators will edit or deleted your post. You may be sent a warning.
