Exclamation Rules & Regulations ~ (Updated 11th May 2014 -No cross posting of same info across multiple threads)

1) Strictly no Buy/Sell/Mass Order threads to be posted here and that included selling of CNY cookies/goodies by home bakers which are prohibited by AVA. Buy/Sell/Mass Order threads are to be posted at the Marketplace or they will be deleted. For commercial sales, kindly contact the HWZ Administrators.

2) Please stick to food related postings: I am fine with some off topic replies but not these:
  • Posting smileys only - No or just smilies post please. Use some effort to write something constructive for your replies.
  • Greeting post - Because if every members were to start greeting each others, it will snowballed to many OT posts.
  • One word post - Save words like Bookmarked etc... to yourself, the others don't need to know about it.
  • Masquerading OT post with minor food discussion - Post maybe edited or deleted.
  • OT post/reply that get replied to - Please know when to stop else the whole series of replies including the original OT post will be deleted.
  • Bumping post – If you have nothing to contribute, do not bump up the thread with posts like “Upz for more promotions”, “camping here for pictures” etc…
  • Cross posting – I know you would like to share the news or promotion but please do not post the same info across multiple threads. Duplicated post will be deleted on sight.

3) Posting of picture(s):
  • For those sharing pictures here, please include some texts in your post, for example: “Makan at so and so stall/restaurant”. This way when someone replies to your post, he/she can just remove the pictures and leave the texts behind in the quote.
  • If you are posting a series of picture posts, a minimum of four pictures per post is required if you have more than four pictures; otherwise it will be treated as spamming.

4) Replying to post with picture(s):
  • When replying to a post that consist of picture(s), avoid including the picture(s) in the quoted reply to save screen space and having to view the same set of pictures multiple times.
  • If you must reference to a particular picture, just quote that one picture only. But if the picture is already on the same page, then avoid quoting it at all. Do spare a thought for those mobile users with limited screen space.

5) If you spotted an Off Topic (OT) / Sales post, use the Report Post button and do not contribute to the OT by posting why moderators are not doing anything. Moderators can't be monitoring each and every post in every thread 24hrs a day nor do they have the time to do so. Please help us by using the Report Post (exclamation mark in triangle) button located at the lower left hand corner of the post.

6) For Blog and Website Owners, if you do not contribute any information (pictures or reviews) to this section but redirect traffic to your own sites, your thread(s) and/or post(s) will be deleted. Do not try to circumvent the rules by masquerading your commercial sales post, because the moderators do check and will delete it on sight.

For persistent cases, Infraction points will be awarded and if a member accumulated enough points, he/she will be automatically banned.
