Forum rules

  • MA Lighting International GmbH provides this web-based service as a user community resource. The forums are for free discussion and exchange of information, experiences and expertise with other users of MA Lighting products.


    Membership has its privileges. Registration and login are required in order to post to the forums.


    This service is NOT a replacement for formal channels of technical support. While MA Lighting staff are encouraged to participate in discussions, it may be necessary to direct issues to the technical support team. Please visit https://www.malighting.com/training-support/overview/ for more information.


    We will monitor and moderate the forums to ensure the Terms of Service and Guidelines are maintained. MA Lighting reserves the right to edit or remove, with or without notification, any post that does not fall within the outlined criteria or which, in MA Lightings sole discretion, is not appropriate for message postings within these forums. By applying for a login you agree to transfer all rights on your postings, even after the deletion of your user.


    As a member of this community forum, you are solely responsible for the content you upload or download. But as a community member, we ask that you respect everyone’s use of this resource by adhering to the following rules.


    The language in the forum is English. Refrain from posting in any other language. (Except the existing dot2 German forum.)


    Don’t register for more than one User account, don’t register for a User account on behalf of an individual other than yourself, don’t register for a User account on behalf of any group or entity.


    Be yourself. Don’t impersonate another person or entity, or falsify or delete any author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations or labels of the origin or source of software or other material contained in a post.


    Refrain from restricting or inhibiting any other User from using and enjoying this forum.


    Avoid publishing, posting, uploading, distributing or disseminating, or offering to do the same (hereinafter "Post") any abusive, harassing, threatening, inappropriate, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, libelous, infringing, vulgar, fraudulent, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, hateful (racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable) unlawful material or information or otherwise violate the legal rights of others.


    Refrain from posting any material that infringes any patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret or other proprietary right of any party (the "Rights"), unless you are the owner of the Rights or have the permission of the owner to post or transmit such material.


    Avoid uploading, posting, transmitting, sharing, storing or otherwise making publicly available on the Site any private information of any third party, including, but not limited to, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, Social Security numbers and credit card numbers.


    Absolutely don’t upload, post, transmit, share, store or otherwise make available content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law.


    Refrain from advertising or offering products or services. This is not a market place.


    Don’t post any files that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another user's computer.


    Please do not conduct or forward surveys, contests, “spam”, “junk mail”, “pyramid schemes” or “chain letters”.


    Avoid downloading any file posted by another User that you know, or reasonably should know, that cannot be legally distributed in such manner.


    Avoid cross-posting or multi-posting messages. If you feel a message is not in an appropriate forum, please contact a Moderator or the Administrator. Moderators can edit topics, move them to other forums that may be more responsive or relevant or remove topics and threads completely.


    Don’t harvest or collect email addresses or other contact information of other users from the Service or the Site by electronic or other means for the purposes of sending unsolicited emails or other unsolicited communications. This resource is for supporting the MA community, not a potential marketing target.


    In general, be courteous, respectful and helpful. Be open to debate, but don’t expect everyone will always agree. Be tolerant, but don’t expect everyone will tolerate your peculiar mood or behavior. All Users should feel welcome and safe.
