PROGRAMMING FORUM RULES:
*You may not edit, resell, trade or otherwise distribute another person's code - including code you bought from them - without their direct consent. If they wish to give consent for the general public to use their code in any such way, it must be written in their original selling topic for that code or in their blogs. Offsite code is the same - if the site doesn't give permission to use their code, please don't.
*All code bought and sold must be for Marapets currency and must stay on the site. This means you may not offer someone MP, AU, etc. for code you intend to use offsite. Code is to be for clubs and Marasites only.
*When using generators to create graphics or layouts, you absolutely MUST include that fact when trying to sell. You may NOT claim you made them and you MUST tell everyone you're using a generator.
*Punishments for stealing code/layouts will vary based on whether or not it is a first time offense and the extent of the theft. However, they will never be less than a substantial fine and the return of all profits from the stolen code to the buyers. In worst case scenarios, the member may be permanently underaged. There will never be third chances and anyone convicted of theft a third time will be underaged, possibly permanently.
*Double posting is allowed if it has been more than half an hour since the last post.
*No award ceremonies or asking for nominations for awards. Contests are allowed, though, provided there is no entrance fee. No wars - we ask that you keep those in your club.
*Agree on prices before selling or buying a layout. If you're buying and not sure you'll like the person's work, ask for examples before agreeing to buy. When selling, please include examples and any necessary forms in your post. In the event that a buyer no longer wants the ordered layout they will be expected to pay 50% of the final cost for the time the coder has spent creating it.
*No live auctions on layouts that aren't finished yet. In the event you want to LA a custom layout you must have a completed example so bidders will know what you're capable of making. Live Auctions must not be abandoned for longer than 6 hours. No reserving the right not to sell. All auctions must be final. Live auctions must be completed within 24 hours.
*Critiques should be limited to topics where the person is asking for them. Do not critique any layout unless it's specifically asked for. Also, please keep criticism constructive. For example, "I think your css code needs some work" is acceptable. Posting "Your layout sucks" is not.
