Forum Rules & Etiquette

Post by DChang »

Welcome to

We are hoping to connect buyers and sellers of Personal Protective Equipment source life saving equipment. We target to build a global community that supplies one another during times of need.

Please note that use of this website subject to the rules and regulations below. Please read these rules carefully and ensure all your activity is in line with them.

Community Guidelines
Treat other members of the community with respect.

Keep discussions civil and constructive. Don't encourage or participate in trolling, spamming, harassment, or rumor-mongering. Avoid real-life topics as they might cause controversy.

Avoid personal attacks, profanity, religious, political, or other inappropriate remarks. Please consider that there is a real person on the other side of the screen, do not escalate conflicts.

Keep discussions constructive.

Create threads in appropriate sections of the forum. Always review section and thread's guidelines before replying.

Only post meaningful and constructive messages. Remember that posts containing only emoticons, "bump", "first" and similar single-word exclamations, and other throwaway comments do not add value to the discussion.

English is currently our official language and should be used on the forums by all participants. If you have to post a message in a different language, please provide at least a roughly translated version as a courtesy to other members of the community.

Avoid off-topic, cross-posting, and resurrecting old threads. Try using the forum search function before creating a new thread.

Restrict roleplay discussions to private messages or external platforms to avoid confusion.

Be reasonable.

Use post formatting appropriately. Never post messages in all caps or messages that break forum layout, and don't attempt to bypass our profanity filters by replacing letters with symbols or abbreviating offensive words.

Don't publish unsolicited advertisements in posts, reviews, direct messages, or user profiles.

Use username, picture, bio, and signature for their intended purpose only.

Be helpful.

Avoid backseat moderation. Use the Report button to notify our staff about inappropriate behavior. Distance yourself from the discussion if it's clearly turned toxic.

Don't re-create locked or deleted threads.
