Bumping Topics:
Yasmine723 wrote:Effective
immediately you can only bump a post once in 48 hours (ONCE every two days). If you do bump
sooner the 1st offense is a verbal warning by staff. Second offense is a
physical warning.
*If you are bumping a topic for more than 10 days, the topic will be considered inactive and will be locked.

There still seems to be some confusion in bumping a topic:
Spoiler:
Let's use an auction as an example:

At 11:05 AM on 4/5/10: you post that Yas is in the lead.....this is OK

At 4:15 PM you say: Bumping... this is not allowed

Why:
Because when you posted at 11:05 that is the same as a bump, so now you
need to wait for 48 hour from 11:05 on 4/5/10 so you could bump the
topic on 4/7/10 anytime on/after 11:05

Please remember allowing "bumping" is a privilege to help members keep their topics active and should not be abused.


Any questions please feel free to contact a member of staff.


Forum Siblings:
AaliyahLuvah26 wrote:
A
lot of members have requested that they have their brother/sister join
the forum. This is no longer allowed due to the many cases in which
certain members lie to have an extra account for the wrong reasons.
Please do not ask any of the Staff members to allow your siblings to
join and do not ask if you can share accounts. If you continue to
persist and try to persuade the staff to change their minds, they have
the right to give you a warning. Please respect and obey this rule.

Thank You.

More on Personal Information:
Zeldag2016 wrote:Everyone, be sure to read this. I just want to clarify this.

The
release of personal information is not allowed here. This includes
phone number, address, zip code, or anything like that. We are trying to
protect you.

If you are to disobey this rule, it will result in
a warning. If found in a post, we will remove it and consequences will
come in time.
Read a bit of this for basic internet safety guidelines to help you not only protect your computer, but protect yourself:
http://www.brighthub.com/internet/security-privacy/articles/3445.aspx

Please take the time to read over all the rules and insure all are followed while you read this. Thank you.

Edit
by AaliyahLuvah26: I will allow the use of emails and full names but
please use with precaution. We will not be responsible for any trouble
you get into for giving out personal information.


Password Security:
Recess_rocks09 wrote:All you need to
keep your account safe is an at least 8 digit long password with both
numbers and letters, uppercase and lowercase.


Spoiler:
A
password that is 8 letters/numbers long has over 218 trillion
combinations! That means that for a person who knows your password is 8
digits long to have even a 1% chance of guessing your password, it will
take them almost 300,000 years!

Computer
programs can be much quicker at guessing passwords, so valuable
information needs to be guarded by a strong password. A good website to
help you choose a password is

https://www.goodpassword.com/passwordgenerator.htm
Spoiler:

Select "8" from the box that says "Size"
and "5" from the drop-down box that says "Password #". Look at the
passwords it generates for you and refresh the page until you see one
that looks easier to remember. Feel free to make a change or two so
you'll be able to remember it.

Tips:



  • Use
    a strong password for all of your secure information: iTunes, e-mail
    accounts, and any website that has your personal info, especially credit
    card information.

  • This can be the same password for all or a separate password for each site.
  • More
    importantly, your passwords for secure sites need to be different from
    the ones you use in forums and other websites like Millsberry. This way
    you can be sure that nobody from these websites intercepts your password
    to gain access to your credit card or personal info.

  • Never use
    passwords shorter than 6 characters, names of sports teams, websites,
    names of people, favorite things, etc. Passwords should be as random as
    possible so they won't be guessed.




Signatures:
AaliyahLuvah26 wrote:Please do not get a
signature that will slow down the forum or take up too much space. If
your signature is inappropriate, you will be notified by a staff member
and will have 24 hours to remove/change it.


DO NOT advertise in your signatures.
The only thing you may advertise in your signature is your Millsberry.com Yard sale or your Millsberry.com Home.

Any questions? PM me. Smile



Reporting Posts:

Reporting Posts!

We
urge our members to report posts immediately if you see anybody doing
something that is against the rules. You can report a post by clicking
the: button.

When
you report a post that way, it is easier for Staff to find out whats
happening or of course you can just P.M a Staff member saying what the
report is.
Spoiler:
Don't be afraid because if you never did
anything wrong then you will not get in trouble, in fact if you report a
post that is going against the rules you are not just helping
yourselves but you are helping everybody else in the forum. You do not
have a button to report private messages so therefor you will have to
P.M me saying what was in the P.M and we will see what we can do for you
but that option is only for reporting P.M's.
As
I said we are very nice at this forum but many members take this as an
opportunity to go against the rules thinking we wont say anything but we
will because we are trying to keep our forum safe for you members!
We
at this forum try our hardest to keep you satisfied and because of that
reason we want you to go along with our rules, after all we try our
best to give as many prizes as we can away and to keep you happy at this
forum. We really want you to enjoy your stay and have fun. Please dont
ruin it for others.
Remember we are always happy to help!



Multiple Topics:
Recess_rocks09 wrote:Recently many members have been posting more than one topic in sections of the forum where only one topic is allowed per person. The sections allowing 1 topic at a time are:


Sections allowing 2 topics at a time:



Clicking on any of the white links will take you to the Rules topic for that specific forum. Before you post
please be sure to check the rules in the topic in that section. First
everyone will get a verbal warning, and if it happens again, a regular
warning for posting too many topics.


If you have reached your topic limit and you would like to post a new topic, ask a mod to close your topic by posting in your topic or through PM.

If you have any questions ask a member of Staff. Thank you and have a great time on MFO!

OUR FORUM IS COPYRIGHTED
If you steal anything or any idea, you will be asked kindly to remove them
at first, but if you don't respond/remove it, we will need to contact
the
