Forum Rules- posted in different languages

Just a suggestion to improve things here as the forum grows:

1) We need to provide forum rules on a sticky, as well as on a form that is "checked off" and agreed to when you are allowed membership. Simple quick bullets of info about posting, protocol, and failure to comply etc. This should be in English, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian at minimum.

2) Action needs to be taken for personal attack and profane words used against Giant. It was stated by Olney that personal attacks on other forum members would result in action. This should be followed up or it is meaningless.

3) Most important, new members need to be explained procedures and etiquette of posting on others sales threads. That includes NOT adding your sales listings to others threads, and not posting non-relevant information and posts.

4) Also, minimum information should be required on posts for sales. IDN, punycode, maybe renewal date, translation, etc.

I think this is a great idea, and we should do it immediately.

The priority should be to put up a sticky with a max of 4 or 5 simple rules, and have it in Chinese and English.

More languages can then follow, and more rules as and when.

Bill do you want to draft 4 or 5 obvious rules?

and if one of our fellow Chinese literate members would care to volunteer to translate, we'll get it up now.
