All messages express the views of the author. will not be held responsible for the content of any message. If you find anything that contravenes these rules please help us by reporting them so we can deal with the matter quickly and efficiently. retains the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

When choosing a user name please be sure to respect the name of the product (in this case Cobber Linux or Cobber for short). User names that are disrespectful or derogatory, of any products, people, or groups will not be allowed. Also any user name that indicates that the user is an official part of any product or group will not be allowed unless proof of professional relationship with said product or group can be proven.

When posting in the forum keep the following in mind:
* These rules apply to all Cobber community sites including but not limited to If you brake the rules in 1 you have broken community wide rules.

* Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated.
* Flame Wars will not be tolerated.
* Do not post if you do not have anything constructive to say in the post.
* When posting in an existing thread, ensure that what you're posting is on-topic and relevant to the thread. If the content of your post will interfere with the current discussion, you should start a new thread.
* Your thread may be moved to a more appropriate forum at a moderator's discretion.
* Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully without insult and personal attack. Different opinions are fine, personal attacks are not.
* Do not post the same discussion multiple times. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members. Try and pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure put it in Cobber Help.
* The best place for your question is in the forum. Please do not post requests for help via email, IM or other personal communication channels. If you need help chances are someone else will have the same need one day and if your thread is not in the forum then your question has not helped anyone else.
* There is no advertising allowed in the forums. If you are interested in advertising, please contact us.
* Do not intentionally circumvent any other rule or measure explicitly stated elsewhere on the site.
* Do not post homework assignments verbatim. We're happy to assist if you have specific questions or have hit a stumbling point, however. Let us know what you've already tried and what references you have used (including class notes, books, and searches) and we'll do our best to help. Keep in mind that your instructor might also be a member.
* While we hope every question does get an answer, we cannot guarantee a response.

In addition, we recommend you avoid sms/l33t speak in Cobber Community sites. Avoiding sms/l33t speak will improve question clarity and increase the chance of receiving a helpful response.
* The main focus of is Cobber Linux and Open Source projects, please keep discussions to these topics. While everyone has different opinions on all matters it is expected you will use the proper names and terminologies for the things that are being discussed (e.g. Please use Windows for Windows instead of Windbloze). While we may not like something we should still show respect.
* Cobber is a part of the Linux ecosystem, please do not insult other parts of, or people involved in, the Linux ecosystem. You do not have to like things and you are free to express this but using emotionally charged terms is insulting and will not be tolerated.
