    3. User-staff relations

    A member of staff in this forum is someone appointed to take care of it. Moderators of this forum is an example.

    3.2 Moderator action requests
    Do not publicly call for moderator action or try to enforce the guidelines yourself. Politely informing someone of a rule is fine, but it's best to just let a moderator know.

    3.3 Open discussion of staff decisions
    Do not openly discuss action, or lack thereof, taken by the staff. If you have concerns about a moderator action, see 3.4 below.

    3.4 Contesting moderation action
    All of the moderators are active community members who try to set a good example and enforce the rules as well as possible, but they are human and can make mistakes from time to time. If you disagree with something they have done, please contact them privately, and the issue will be re-examined.

    4. Account security and personal information

    4.1 User responsibility
    Keep your account safe, because anything done from it will be considered your responsibility. It is highly advised that you do not give out any personal information. Members of staff will not ask you for anything other than account details that are needed for solving a technical problem you have requested help with.

    So for the "new topic" option, is that available now? Or is it for the future when this isn't just the one topic?

    I see you've put an ad at the top just so the forum wouldn't cost you anything, I would guess. And if you want to have more ads, where will they be? Or is it just the one so you don't have to spend money on the domain fees?
