Welcome to PaGaLGuY. Read the rules and guidelines of posting below. For a general understanding of the forum and how it works, visit this link.Rules/FAQ for the forum. A maximum of three warnings for any user not following the below rules.

in public or through Private Messages on the forum is not allowed without permission
of PaGaLGuY.com. Any advertising on the site without permission will immediately invite an immediate public ban. If you wish to advertise, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You may freely share personal blogs or initiatives in your signature. However, posting your own blogs or websites with a clear focus on diverting discussions away from the forum or business angle is clearly not done. Do not spam the threads with Press Releases or marketing content, such as copy-paste of website or brochure content of a b-school.
1. Familiarise yourself with this place
Take your own sweet time to familiarise with the forum and its pulse. Only then start posting. Visit other similar forums to know the difference between forum and an e-group.
2. Where to start?
I. Start by providing a brief introduction about yourself in the 'Anouncement' Section's "Introduce Yourself" thread. This will help exisiting members know more about you so that they can help, if need be.
II. Best place to start posting is in Chit-Chat forum. Whatever you do there, will be recieved in lighter vein and you wont be disappointed to see your first posts/thread locked/moved or criticized.
3. Spams & Flames
I. No multiple threads on same/similar topics. We encourage posting in existing threads so that the forum is more manageable. Mutiple threads would be locked by moderators and purged later.
II. Do not SPAM or post in threads that have specific puposes ( like, Alumni Zone, Announcements ) unless you mean it. Frequent violaters shall be banned.
III. We are all a friendly and helpful bunch out here. Don't make personal attacks on anyone. Bring it to notice any issue/concerns to mods if need be.
IV. USE SHOUTBOX whenever in doubt. Some of the old-timers mite be around at that time to help you.
4. Posting in threads
I. Sharing of personal information such as Phone numbers/addresses in posts are strictly forbidden. You may use PM/mail to share such information.
II. No canvasing to sell any materials. Exchange of exam related items such as Mock Cats, materials is however permitted. Users violating this rule would be warned. And repeated offenders would be banned.
III. Make use of the Search functionality extensively. This place has been around for a while and your question might have already been raised and answered in appropriate thread(s). Trivial threads shall be locked and purged immediately.
IV. Use quote function whenever you are refering to a particular post/posts. This will facilitate easy reading. However, refrain from quoting full posts as it will occupy unnecessary space.
V. Name your threads appropriately. This will not only facilitate user to filter unwanted threads but also it will make search easier. For example, a thread on SimCat-1 better have that word in the title rather than an something like "My first simulated feline examination".
VI. Go easy on CAPS. Posting messages in CAPS is not only rude but also makes it uncomfortable to read. Refrain from using very light or dark colours for posts. They annoy readers.
VII. Be nice to everyone. Sarcastic comments, innuendoes and behaviour unbecoming of the regulars who visit here will not be taken lightly.
VIII. Do not post MATERIAL where you do not have permission to distribute it electronically or otherwise.
