1. Forum rules
  1. This forum is intended for professionals in the medical device industry. It is the expectation that all will act in a professional manner on this site.
  2. We encourage you to refer to the FAQ section as a reference for the features of this forum.
  3. We also encourage you to visit the User Control Panel to customize your personal settings for this forum.
  4. Please ensure that initial posts are made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting to ensure the post is in the correct category.
  5. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Harassing or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
  6. Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document, they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Please use the “post report” feature to report posts.
  7. Members should remember this board is aimed at the medical device community. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.

  9. Members are asked only to post in English to help facilitate global interaction and discussion.
  10. Members should post in a way which is consistent with "normal writing". That is, users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned.
  11. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive subject when posting a new topic. Examples of bad subjects include; "Help me!", "I'm stuck!", etc. Examples of good subjects include; "Need Labeling help for EU.", Stuck!, Is there a symbol for xxxx?"
  12. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering services (charged and free), solicitation etc.
  13. Disagreement on topics and voicing of opinions is natural and expected on this site. Discussion allows for learning. However, please be respectful to each other's opinion and perspectives in discussions.

2. Avatars
  1. Users are permitted to utilize a gallery avatar or to link to one of their own (subject to previous points on misuse of bandwidth).

Limit on image file size prevents detrimental effect on forums page load speed.
