In the past couple of weeks I had to close and delete more topics than ever because of some people breaking our forum rules. Strangely it wasn't always someone who had a first post, the so often seen hit-and-run users (register, post and never seen again).
Taking into account the above, it makes me wonder why this is happening all of a sudden. Yes, we become more known to the world every day. Yes, we do run a site about backing up originals. Yes, making a copy of an original is not always allowed. But, does that mean you can automatically post illegal stuff on this forum?
Clearly the answer to the above-mentioned question is NO, but why do I see so many people who don't get this. The rules are clearly stated in the registration process and found in many signatures of mods/admins.
So my question is this, do we have a clear policy or are there any unclarities that we need to sort out. If the policy is clear, what should we do to prevent so many people from breaking our rules?
Currently I am a bit at a loss in this, so I ask you, visitors to our forum, what can we do to turn the tide?
ps On a side-note, but nevertheless important, if you see someone breaking the rules, please don't reply to the topic, that will only give more attention to the thread. Notify the respective forum mod or any of the (senior) admins to delete or close the topic. This is 1) more effective and 2) the forum will come accross as more friendly because users do not 'bash' each other. Thanks in advance
