Forum Rules

As a member of The Aerodrome Forum, you agree to the following rules.

General Rules

  • While debating and discussing an issue is fine, we do not permit rudeness, profanity (or attempts to bypass profanity filters), insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decisions are final in these matters.
  • Quoting posts or parts of posts that violate these rules is not permitted.
  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsense posts, or the like.
  • Crossposting (posting the same message in more than one forum) is not permitted.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, visitor messages, picture comments and private message systems to spam other members.
  • Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. For style changes and general 'how-to' questions this should be 24 hours. For specific troubleshooting issues, use 12 hours as a guideline.
  • We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate The Aerodrome Forum's community standards. The administrators and moderators of this forum shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and does not violate community standards.
  • Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
  • Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts from the same PC is not allowed.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
  • All posts will be in English. Messages containing non-English text must also include an English translation of the text.
  • Posts arguing about forum policies or rules are not allowed.
  • Posts criticizing or discussing moderator actions are also not allowed
  • You may not post affiliate or referral links and you may not post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be removed.
  • You may not post advertisements or notices for contests.
  • Private messages shall be considered to be confidential information and shall not be posted in the forum.
  • Email messages shall be considered confidential information and shall not be posted in the forum without the express approval of the email's author.
  • The Aerodrome Forum does not warrant the accuracy, completeness or veracity of any information posted in this forum. A message posted in the forum expresses the views of its author and no one else.
  • Any members who feels a violation of these rules has occurred is asked to click the "Report Post" icon to identify the specific post and describe the nature of the violation.
  • Becoming a member of The Aerodrome Forum is a privilege, not a right. We reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates these forum rules.

Advertising Services and Solicitation

Members will not post threads or send private messages or emails to other members that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. Explicit advertising and soliciting in signatures is also prohibited.

Links in signatures must follow these guidelines

  • A link and/or promotional text for a non-commercial site that does not offer product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate The Aerodrome Forum's community standards. The Aerodrome Forum administrators and moderators shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.)
  • Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.
  • All signatures must be in English


  • Animated avatars are not allowed.
  • Avatars that may be confused with official staff avatars are not allowed.

Signature Size Limits

All signatures must meet the following standards:

  • You may not have both text and images in your signature
  • For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • Do not use images with large text to bypass the previous item
  • For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size
  • Animated images in a signature are not allowed

We also have some rules that apply for certain forums

Off Topic forum

The Off Topic forum is where members can gather to chat about almost anything. If you have a question that doesn't fit into any other forum, this is the place to discuss it.


Although the administrators and moderators of The Aerodrome Forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review each and every message. A message posted here expresses only the views of its author and not the owners of The Aerodrome Forum. The owners of The Aerodrome Forum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any message and/or thread for any reason.

Staff Disputes

Any disputes with the administrators or moderators of The Aerodrome Forum will be handled in private through the Private Message System.


The Aerodrome Forum administrators reserve the right to update and/or modify these rules as necessary to ensure the smooth operation of this online community.
