The administrator of TTN can’t guarantee and he is not responsible of the accuracy and the contents posted by users in the forum or in the comments sections.

Each user that decides to log in on TTN is responsible for contents and messages the he/she will upload or write.

Please collaborate with us to maintain TTN a place for professional conversation, avoiding to post on our pages:

  • Politics or political propaganda in any form
    If you wish to discuss politics, kindly find an appropriate forum for such discussion.
  • Potentially inflammatory discussions or comments regarding social issues. These include, but are not limited to, topics such as racism, sexism, religion, xenophobia or homosexuality.
  • Crude, derogatory, inappropriate, or disrespectful remarks aimed at any individual(s). Offensive or unnecessarily abrasive comments directed at any individual are not tolerated in any form. These include anything from personal vendettas to unnecessarily insulting comments directed at the work of any individual.
  • Spamming
  • Hate speech
    Derogatory, anti-social or inflammatory remarks aimed at any group of people, with the intention to incite a mass response are not only a crime in most countries, but are also totally unacceptable here.
  • Any comments made with the sole intention of disruption or to cause distress to any individual(s) whether made metaphorically, or otherwise, any personal defamatory remarks directed at any individual(s) are unacceptable.
  • Pornography
    This excludes the tasteful use of nudity in artwork. Images or animations depicting blatantly pornographic acts including intercourse, masturbation, bestiality or abuse, and links to pornographic sites are not tolerated under any circumstances.
  • Unnecessarily violent, crude, or obscene imagery
    Scenes depicting themes such as rape, or any other brutality will not be tolerated in any form.
  • Racial slurs
    No matter how amusing some people might find them, most users consider jokes, or underhanded comments, directed at any race or culture highly offensive.
  • Piracy
    Users requesting or advertising warez (or links to warez sites), serial numbers, cracks, or illegally copied software documentation, are not welcome on TTN pages. TTN does not tolerate any members that, in any way, aid or encourage the use of illegally acquired software.
  • Posts that are potentially in breach of any NDA Agreements
    This includes screenshots or any unlawfully acquired knowledge regarding beta versions of software that are not available to the general public. Even if you are not the one who signed the agreement, you are still not permitted to post such matter.
  • Totally ludicrous subjects
    While the actual definition of this one may be debatable, we prefer to keep totally ridiculous subject matter that is totally unrelated to the industry, away from the forums as much as possible.
  • General Notes
    Posts containing subject matter as listed above will be removed in all cases, and should the author of such posts persist in posting such matter, that user will no longer be allowed to post on the forums.

The Administrator of TTN requests that all users remain, at all times, respectful and courteous towards all other members of the forum.

We believe that these guidelines are fair and acceptable, and that all users should respect our reasons for keeping them in place. The admin is not there to police everyone, but rather to protect users from offensive or unlawful content.

Should a user have any problems or issues regarding any subject on the forum or the acts of any other user, they are encouraged to contact the Administrators who will attend to the matter.

Users are also encouraged to use the Report this post function within threads, should they feel that any comments posted on the forums have violated any of the guidelines stipulated here.

We hope that you enjoy TTN!
