Even though a member might have previous forum experience, please take the time to finish reading this Forum Rules. Every Forum’s rules will differ slightly. All members should familiarize themselves with the rules and regulations, so future avoidable problems will not arise
Welcome to the SL-Unlimited Forums. We are a Friendly, Caring, Fun community. You are expected to use good judgment and common sense when posting, and act like a civilized individual. Members here encompass all AGES, and the contents in a post should be suitable as such. These forums are for people who have an interest in building a Sri Lankan community with RESPECT for one another.
Please remember that the open and real-time nature of these Forums makes it is impossible for us to vouch for the validity of any content posted.

While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, bigotry, or purposeless inflammatory posts. Do not use abusive language, if you are a victim of any of the above please contact staff with proof. Our decision is final in these matters.
We encourage to post latest & important news in the forum, but with the source of the news. You will not post any material that is knowingly false, misleading, or inaccurate. Any news without showing the source is not permitted.
You will not post any copyrighted material, nor link to any copyrighted material (with the exception of publicly available sites and pages that the legal owners of the copyrights have created to make that material freely available to the general public), unless that copyright is owned by you or by these Forums.
You will respect people's right to personal privacy and will not post any identifying information (including their names, contact information, and any other relevant information) within the forum.

By posting, you hereby grant us a perpetual, non-exclusive license to the posted content for use online, in print, databases, CD, and any and all other media, whether now known or hereafter created.
Bumping, multiple, or repeated posting in the same or different forum sections (in order to increase your post count) is not allowed, and will get you banned real quick.
You will not impersonate any person or entity, forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any posting, nor collect or store personal data about other users.
Advertising, spamming, flooding, and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and private message (PM) system to spam other members.
No YELLING. For those that don't know, this is posting IN ALL CAPS. It's rude and annoying, and if you do it, your post will be removed. - Posting in an extremely large font may also result in your message being edited, and/or removed.
You will not use these forums to violate any laws nor to discuss illegal activities.
Do not post messages that violate Federal, State, or Local laws which include, but are not limited to, anything that violates a copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or is bound by NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

Forum Signature (sig) and avatar
First off, a sig or avatar is supposed to be something short and sweet, not take up half a page.
If using an image, the maximum dimensions are 200 x 100 pixels for a sig and 100 x 100 pixels for a avatar with a maximum combined file size of roughly 40k. File type should be .gif, .jpg or .png. You can have any combination of smaller images just as long as combined they don't exceed those dimensions or file size limit.
We allow the use of animated images in your sig or avatar, but if it really detracts from the posts, which should be a person’s main focus, we will remove them.
Do not use any font larger than size three (3).
Do not put adult content in your sig or avatar.
Anything prohibited in the general rules is also prohibited in sigs and avatars.
Affiliate links of any kind are NOT permitted (i.e. PayPal, Outwar, etc.).
Any link, image or wording about any completive site is not allowed.
Try to keep your sig and avatar nice and clean, if we come across broken images we will usually remove the entire sig. It's your responsibility to ensure images are loading properly, not ours.
Please think twice before you post. SL-Unlimited will remove and ban offending posts and members who do not adhere to the forum rules. Any post against the forum rules which you agreed above would be the reason to ban your membership.
We would hate to remove members from our database as all their previous posts and history will be wiped out. If you desperately need to share files do so using other methods such as private messages and email.
We will be enforcing this strictly here after. Suddenly if you don't see SL-Unlimited or you get a message saying you are banned do not email asking for help.
Merging Threads with Similar Topics/Content
Staff will merge threads with similar topics or content into a single thread.
If multiple threads exist on a related topic, one with more content & updates will be treated as the parent and
all others will become its children. If all threads have similar quality, content and updates, the one with the
earliest opening date will be treated as the parent and all other child threads will be merged with the parent thread.
When the need arises, this unbiased decision will be taken collectively by the SLU staff.
