Re: Official Dream.In.Code Rules

Posted 14 November 2005 - 03:14 PM

POPULAR is a friendly community for programmers and web developers of any level. You will find experienced programmers, inexperienced newbies, hobbyists, and every age and experience level in between participating at We expect you to compose yourself in the same way that you would expect to be treated in the "real world" and show respect for fellow members. With that being said, we have outlined some specific do's and don'ts below and by participating in the forums you are acknowledging that you have read and agree to ALL of the formalities below.

Please read the entire Terms of Service which outlines most of our rules and expectations here:

Posting a Programming Help Question
Members of Dream.In.Code are here to help you, we will not not do your homework for you, or just give you code. If you are posting a question in one of our many programming help forums, you'll need to tell us what the problem is, show us your code (by posting like this: :code:), and explain any errors you are encountering. If you can't do this, you will probably receive little or no help.

Providing Help
As stated above, we do not do peoples homework for them. We are here to help. So please feel free to give back to the community by replying to questions. If a member does not include their code or is simply asking you to do their homework for them, you can type: [ rules ][ /rules ] (no spaces) to include our homework and code policy. You can also request a member paste their code in the appropriate [code] tags by using our : code : emoticon (again, no spaces).

  • If you own a website that has **information** that would be helpful to the topic being discussed, you are encouraged to post a link to the portion of your site that discusses the topic. This may be an article or tutorial you wrote on a certain technique.
