GENERAL RULES :
Links to rules which are specific to each forum section are located at the bottom.
Please note that the following rules are general guidelines for accepted behavior on Pinoyworld and or PinoyTV forums. We list these specific items, so you can have a general understanding of what is and isn't allowed. There is no realistic way to itemize each and every single thing and new situations can arise in immediate exclusions and/or additions to the rules mentioned below. It is at the discretion of the moderator and/or administrators to ultimately decide if a user's actions on the forums are appropriate. This means that items do NOT have to be explicitly stated here to be considered a violation of the forum rules. If you feel that a moderator/administrator has wrongfully judged your behavior and/or actions then you have the option to appeal "once" to an alternate forum administrator. The outcome to your appeal is final and any further active objections will result in a warning. Appeals MUST contain a concise description of what you are being accused of and why you feel that the mod/admin's decision is wrong. Also, as much as you may disagree, please DO NOT write your appeal out of emotional distress or anger (vulgar remarks, rudeness, etc). If you want us to be fair and reasonable, then we expect you to be mature in your response.
