Edited: Jan 22


Nthefastlane® is a community of individuals of all ages who are here to learn new information, to help each other, and to help their fellow peers. With that in mind, I ask that all members please follow these simple rules in order to create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable.


The rules are as follows:

All information and instructions given within these forums is to be used at your own risk. By following or using any of this information you give up the right to hold liable for any damages.

All the forums are categorized by topics.  Please post your questions or messages in the appropriate forum.

Please use the search functions, at the top right of each page, to find your answers.  If you are still having problems, feel free to post your question.

All help must be provided in the forums. Support is not to be provided or requested via personal message, email, or remote desktop control programs (Logmein, TeamViewer, etc).

If a topic is posted in a forum that is not appropriate for the question, Nthefastlane has the right to move that topic to another better suited forum.

The posting of any copyrighted material to this web site is strictly prohibited.

Posting links in order to generate affiliate commissions is not permitted at Any posts that are deemed to be posted in order to generate affiliate commissions, regardless of the product being promoted, will be deleted. If a user continues to create affiliate SPAM posts, they will be banned.

Posting links to non-Nthefastlane guides is NOT permitted. This is because it is impractical for Nthefastlane to monitor and review all such guides for accuracy, no matter how accurate those guides may, in fact, be.

There will be no  use of profanity on Nthefastlane's message boards.  This will not be tolerated and can lead to immediate suspension.

When posting, please use proper grammar. Refrain from 'text-message' style substitutions of words like 'u' for 'you', and 'ur' for 'your'. This is a multi-national forum, and some of our non-English speaking members must use translation software which is confused by abbreviations.

There will be no racial, ethnic, gender based insults or any other personal discrimination's.  This will not be tolerated and can lead to immediate suspension.

There will be no posts meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory. This includes flaming or instigating arguments.

Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible.

Pornography, warez, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form. *This includes your profile icon.

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal, Nthefastlane reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

This forum has the right to request alteration or deletion of any offensive post. If this is not done in a prompt manner, Nthefastlane will delete the material.

Posts may be deleted for any reasons the forum administrator deems reasonable.

Pictures may be posted as long as they are not explicit, offensive, or copyrighted.

Advertisements, of any sort, are not permitted. This includes member names and links to commercial sites in Signatures, or in posts. You also may not solicit sales for Amazon,Ebay, or any other affiliate through the use of promotion or coupon codes. If you would like to advertise on Nthefastlane's site, contact Nthefastlane here.

Any links in signatures or profiles cannot be commercial in nature or they will be removed by You may not put links in your signature soliciting donations unless granted by Nthefastlane. Those member groups that are allowed will be expressly notified. If you have a personal website or off-site help resource, that is more than fine, but you can not sell products or services through your signature. Multiple links to the same site, unless for a very specific reason, are not permitted in a signature and will be removed.

Avatars must be in good taste. This means no vulgar or violent images, pornography, or profanity. Avatars that are found to be inappropriate will be removed at the discretion of the staff.

Linking to hate, anti-Semitic, racist, pornography, warez, or other illegal sites is not permitted.

Links in your signature must be unobtrusive and can not use formatting so that attention is brought to them.

Member's display names can not be email addresses. This rule is in place to protect you from spam bots who will pick up your email address and spam you.

Members may have only one account on this forum. There is no need to have more than one.

Any impersonation of a user from these forums, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning.

Linked and locked topics are pruned regularly to reduce page clutter. If you have a question about where your topic went, please PM the Administrator before starting a new topic asking where it went, or posting a duplicate of the original topic. Nthefastlane will be happy to provide you with a link to the new location, or a reason why it was locked and/or removed.

Violation of any of these rules can lead to a banning of the user from Nthefastlane's Web Site and a deletion of their account. The consequences will be determined by Nthefastlane on a case by case basis.
