Board and Forum Guidelines


1.) Using ALIASES
Each member is requested to limit themselves to one account/alias. If you are operating a business and wish to keep your personal ID separate from your business ID it is allowable to have more than one. Please use prudence. Do not impersonate other individuals or falsely represent yourself.
2.) SEARCH before ASKING
Looking for a specific topic? Be sure to try the Search function before asking a REPEAT question.

3.) Descriptive TOPIC
Don't play guessing games. Enter a "Subject:" line that best describes your topic.
If you have more than ONE question, please enter them as separate topics/questions.

4.) Keep to the SUBJECT
Post to the section that is most appropriate for the topic being presented.

5.) No "Get Rich Quick" Schemes
Do NOT post CHAIN, MLM, REFERRAL, etc. schemes. These types of messages will be deleted.

6) No double posting. Post your discussion in the category that best fits your topic. Do not post the same question and/or article in more than one category.

7.) ENGLISH is the preferred language
The preferred language of these forums is ENGLISH. This site is world wide in scope, as its name Viva San Carlos implies.  E-mail the Admin at:

8.) Watch your Language/Humor
This is a family type joint. Don't post anything you wouldn't want your Mother to read. Language and/or images,(photos) that would be inappropriate in the polite company of strangers are unwelcome here.

9.) Flames Prohibited
If you disagree with someone, feel free to DISCUSS the facts. No personal attacks will be tolerated.

The standard practice on most message boards, forums, emails, web pages, etc. is that the use of all CAPS or all bolds is regarded as SHOUTING!! An occasional all CAPS or all bolds word for added emphasis will be allowed, but if any posting is made in completely all caps or all bolds . . . it may be edited or possibly DELETED.

11.) Observe Copyright Laws
Observe all copyright laws when posting copyrighted material. If the material belongs to someone else, credit the original author whenever possible.    (rev 10/14/2013).

12.) Cut the FAT!
Don't jump in every chance and post the "me too", "same here", "I-got-my-post-count-high" etc. reply. It gets very annoying having to cut through the "fat". These messages will be deleted/edited as the moderators see fit.

13.) Moderation Questions?
Moderation decisions are sometimes a difficult task, judging which questionable material is allowable. We are human and will occasionally make mistakes.

These posts will be deleted and no explanation will be given.
