It is assumed that all registered members or non-registered active users are familiar with the rules and guidelines presented here.



=== Rules and guidelines ===


Following norms and guidelines which are designed to ensure the forum is fair and respects the interests of its users and members.


1/ Time is money for everyone.


While posting your message to National Forum' please always Remember, you are taking up someone's time, so please avoid one or two lines messages or comments in forum like –  Thank you for your reply / I support your views / Greetings / I agree and I don’t think so etc


2/ Respect always matter.


As you know most of Nation Forum’s members / users have never met, in order to avoid any misunderstanding and to demonstrate respect for the other members / users, please keep the following norms in mind when you are communicating through the National Forum’s email list or websites.


•  Follow the same standards of politeness that you would in any other situation. 


 Feel free to express your ideas, thoughts, and feelings, but do so in a way that will   respect others.


  Prepare your correspondence in a professional manner & please use respectful salutations.


• Everyone makes mistakes. Don't criticize others’ simple errors. Check your spelling and grammar.



3/ Always Remember.


Please, don't pass on chain-letter-type messages, advertisements and materials from another website without mentioning its original source, virus alerts, signing request for petitions, job adverts, give-away, email asking for financial supports and dire warnings etc. Also, please avoid followings in your personal e-mail signature – Resume or Personal Profile links or any kind of link (excluding non-profits ending with .org) for promotion.



4/ Hundred percent Freedom.


National Forum gives you 100 percent freedom to express your voices / thoughts / ideas / opinions / experiences and suggestions etc.


All members / contributors are responsible for their own views / statements / comments. Neither the National Forum’ nor the National Forum's Management Team can be held responsible for any views expressed on National Forum.



5/ Insults and threats will not be accepted.


Please be respectful of others even when you do not agree with them, if that is asking too much then please ignore them.  Insults and personal attacks are not welcome on National Forum and any member who resorts to such behaviour will be warned first and then moderated if they persist. Members should feel free to be able to express themselves in a non-judgmental environment. This does not mean other members can not question any view that has been express, nor should you expect your own view not to become the subject of debate, but that members should not be attacked personally for the view they hold, and only their reasoning should be open to criticism.


Anyone who threatens another member, or acts in such a way which causes another member to feel threatened, will be banned from the Jharkhand Forum.



6/ Think before replying National Forum’s email.


• Don't assume everyone is passionate about your cause. In other words, before hitting the Reply button, be sure you are replying to the correct party. If you are replying to a National Forum e-mail, does your reply need to go to everyone, or is it intended for the sender / contributor only?


• Ensure you have read an understood a message before replying to it, don't just skim read or assume someone's position. If you feel someone is misinterpreting you then don't get caught up on it.


• Both sides of the argument are available for other members to be able to make up their own mind.


• If you constantly try to push the same point people may get fed up or consider you unable to back up your position. And please try to reply to the spirit of the original message rather than a literal interpretation.




• Make sure your name and perhaps your town / place is on every message you send so that others can identify you.


• Make sure everyone is familiar with any jargon being used; be aware of acronyms and abbreviations.


• Don’t type in all capital letters. It looks like shouting.


• Don’t type in all lower-case letters. This is known as mumbling.



7/ Change the subject line.


It is inevitable that many discussions will go off on tangents or change direction, if this happens please, change the subject line to reflect the new topic of conversation.



8/ Misuse and Copyrights Issues.


At National Forum, harassing any member or staff or approaching any member for network marketing purpose or misuse of any services and violation of norms will be dealt strictly. 


In National Forum, please don’t post or pass other’s work with your name. Don’t forget to mention its original source in original form. You are allowed to re-publish or forward any email (of National Forum) to third party without altering its original contents and links.


Please, do not copy, paste or reproduce the contents and materials of any of Ozg websites for your personal or commercial blog or website. In such activity, you will be accused in violating of Cyber law and liable to face legal consequences. If you want to use any material for a profit or non-profit purpose then approach to or with details of your request.



=== Complaints ===


If you have any complaints regarding National Forum, its websites, any of its registered members or particular messages then please, mail and It would be appreciated if you do not post your complaint to the forum (or to a contributor) as this has a tendency to cause disruption and can take longer to resolve than by being dealt with in private.


As a general policy it will be brought to someone's attention if there has been a complaint about them, although the anonymity of the complainant will be respected.  Unless someone is clearly acting in an unacceptable way they will be left to decide whether or not they wish to change their behaviour, only when there have been several justified complaints, or if a member consistently ignores warnings, would someone be censured.


Termination or banning of membership from National Forum will always be a last resort after all other attempts have failed.  If some does offend you then the best advice is always to try and ignore them, just as you would in real life.
