Welcome to the V7 Network Forums
Welcome to the friendliest webmaster community on the net. We truly do look forward to meeting and interacting with you in the forums. You may have heard that we are a bit different from other forum communities. It's true! We like it that way!
Step One - Your User CP
Once you've registered, check out your User Control Panel. If anybody has liked what you said and given you Reputation Points, you'll be able to see who gave you those points and what they said about you there.
You'll also find a link to edit your avatar. Don't have an avatar? No worries - you'll find several avatar galleries available there for you to browse.
Another thing you'll want to do in your User Control Panel is edit your profile. We've recently added several fields for you to fill out so you can tell the community what kind of person you are. Don't want tell us your favorite color? Fine - it's optional.
Do you have a blog? Add your most recent blog post to your profile to your profile when you reach 50 quality posts in the community!
When you have reached 50 quality posts in the community, you may include up to 2 links in your signature file located within the User CP. We do not allow affiliate links in the signature file. Users may not sell their signature or avatar space. Any user found doing so will be banned. Links to poor quality neighborhoods will be removed at the discretion of the administrator.
Step Two - Browse The Site
We would love it if you would take a moment to introduce yourself to the community. Let us know where you're from, what you enjoying doing, and maybe why you decided to join the V7 Network. Just keep in mind that we want to hear about YOU, not your website!
Before you post though, please read the rules listed below. This could save us both some trouble and make your stay more enjoyable.
V7 Network Community Guidelines (Rules)
A. We do allow our members to link to their own sites (within reason) when it is relevant as part of their response to a thread, such as linking to a relevant article or blog post. Our moderators are able to tell the difference when a member refers to their own site in order to improve the quality of their response and when a member is spamming the community. Moderators have final say on what is and what is not appropriate.
B. Advertising your products, services or website is strictly prohibited in all forums except for the Webmaster Marketplace. This includes sending unrequested private messages to other members. Posting affiliate links is not allowed anywhere in the community.Before posting in the Webmaster Marketplace, you should read the special rules stickied within those forums.
C. Members should be respectful and courteous to other members. Rudeness to other members is cause for revocation of membership privileges. Please keep in mind that we are a family friendly community. Offensive language is not permitted.
D. Links to adult content or gambling sites are not allowed anywhere in the community. We also do not allow redirected or shortened URLs, also known as masked links.
E. When posting an image, we do ask that our members use the V7N thumbnail option.
F. Please post your topic in the most suitable forum. SEO topics should be posted in, oddly enough, the SEO forum. Coding topics should be posted in the coding forum, not the lobby. Before posting the first time though, we do ask that you take a moment to read our thoughts concerning quality posting.
G. Use a descriptive subject title when posting new threads. "Help!" is not a descriptive subject title."Need help choosing a domain" is a much more descriptive and useful subject title.
H. Starting Threads
A Few More Things
1. Search the Forums First
Before you start a thread, please search the forums first to see if
a ) Your question has already been asked and answered in an active or older thread.
b ) There is already an active thread on this topic.
2. If You Start a Thread,
Don't abandon it.
People start threads to ask a question or discuss information, your fellow forum members respond giving their thoughts and help. It is only courteous to acknowledge this effort by your friends here by staying active in the thread.
3. Problem/Issue Solved
If your problem has been solved, report the thread and request the thread be closed.
If you see spam or obvious rule violation in the forums, please bring it to our attention by using the Report Post icon. (the circled '!' under the posters info)
By working together we can make the V7 Network a quality community for everyone.
