    Things to do
    1. Use common sense when posting
    2. Be friendly and helpful to other users
    3. Try to post in the correct section or an existing thread
    4. Have some fun!

    Things to avoid
    1. Misleading help to users
      Intentionally misleading other members is not a good way to contribute to the community. The point of the forum is to help others and share knowledge.
    2. Posting obscene/pornographic material
      This includes extremely obscene language. Despite the existence of filters, we trust our users to be tasteful and reserve the right
    3. Posting/discussing pirated applications
      This includes, but is not limited to:
      1. Posting or discussing cracked applications and tools for cracking applications
      2. Posting or discussing links to websites facilitating the cracking or sharing of cracked applications
    4. Discussion of illegal activity
      Please refrain from posting about anything that is illegal according to the UK laws. This includes, but is not limited to:
      1. Drugs/controlled substances
      2. Fraud (for example, how to break your iPhone so that you can return it for an exchange)
    5. Flaming, trolling, insulting other members, excessive immaturity, etc.
      At the full discretion of the moderator, anti-social behaviors will be disciplined. We want a pleasant environment for the majority of members that are here for help and enjoyment.
    6. Advertisements or spam
      Refrain from shameless promotion and spamming of other sites. This also includes referral links, free iPod offers, etc.
    7. Fake/paid reviews/astroturfing
      We also do NOT allow reviews that do not disclose that a product was received for free or at a greatly reduced price, or where payment was exchanged for a favorable review. We consider this astroturfing.
    8. Discussions of politics and religion
      Although these are very important topics, tempers typically flare when they come up, so please keep these discussions off the site. Sure, you might be able to handle it, but all it takes is someone having a bad day to get a really nasty flamewar going
    9. Inciting unrest on the forums
      Encouraging users to break the rules, registering multiple accounts to circumvent bans, and other such activities will be swiftly stopped. Please note that registering multiple accounts for any other reason will also not be tolerated. creating another account to avoid a ban will result in permanent bans on all accounts. If you are sharing a computer or internet connection with another user of this site, please be especially mindful of the rules, as any ban on your account may also affect the other user unfairly.
    Things to keep in mind
    • Reminder: breaking any of the above rules 2 or 3 times (or at the discretion of the moderator) within a short time can result in a permanent ban.
    • The "report a post" feature can be used to bring a post to a moderator's attention. If you have any other concerns, feel free to send a polite private message to one of our moderators or administrator (you can also email admin@ifans.com).
    • These rules are subject to moderator's discretion.
    • These rules may also apply to signatures, private messages, visitor messages and other areas of this website.
    The rules may be updated at any time. It is your duty to check back periodically.
