General good behavior

  • Posting research that you have done a certain exploits as to how they work, or how they are performed.
  • The posting of virus information or code, this leads to see great discussion and is encouraged. 
  • The posting of Internet resources that may help other users in request for additional knowledge. Please refer to our spam rules on how do this properly.
  •  The posting of procedures used when performing a security audit is a great resource and helps out many of the professionals that view the site.
  •  Searching before you post as to prevent duplicate threads.

 

Warn points, the warn bar and the warning system

The warn bar is on every member. Each member starts with 0%. As you are warned you percentage increases in increments of 10%. For those having a warned percentage of 30% or more will face administrative punishment. This is to help moderators and administrators to discerning who is to be promoted etc. But also for users as an arrow in a large quiver of options in deciding wether a source is reputable, trustworthy and safe to follow. [BN says: All warn points and the bar itself are, uhhh, only seen by admins & mods.]
 

Removing warning points

if you received a warning ...you can ask the admin team member to review your status after 3mths to remove the warning providing you have NOT received more than one warning.... please contact the team member who gave you the warning. if you have been warned several times... the 3mth period dont apply to you ...its then up to the admin team member discretion regarding your conduct and status
