Forum Regulations

Peer to Peer user community

The Faster Technology Forums are a web-based community provided by Faster Technology to encourage interaction between owners of Faster Technology products to help them exchange ideas, tips, information, and techniques related to these products or services provided by Faster Technology.

In this peer-to-peer environment, forum users are encouraged to answer questions, share experiences and give advice to their fellow users. While Faster Technology employees may occasionally post information, they are not expected to provide technical support or other official replies in these Forums.

Like any community, forums are most valuable when everyone obeys certain basic guidelines and rules. These guidelines and rules are presented here so that you know what is expected of you and what you can expect from other participants when using the Faster Technology Forums.  By registering you agree to follow these guidelines, in addition to the Web Site Terms of Use which can be found at

Keep it relevant

For everyone's benefit, please stay on topic. These Forums are specifically provided to allow Faster Technology customers to help each other.   Please refrain from discussing personal matters, abusing any company or product, or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to the resolution of issues regarding products from Faster Technology. Off topic posts may be removed and further action may be taken against repeat offenders.

Keep it Courteous

These are public forums and we ask that you behave as you would if you were in a public place  - please make sure that you are not detracting from any other user's experience. These issues are left to the discretion of the moderator, but may include any material that is knowingly false or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, hateful regarding race, religion or sexual preference, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense. Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment ("flaming") in either the forums or through private messaging are not acceptable.

Faster Technology is not responsible for messages posted on the Faster Technology Forums or the content therein. Unless expressly stated otherwise, this includes messages posted by Faster Technology personnel, agents, representatives et al.

Keep it Spam and Piracy free

This community is provided as a service to Faster Technology customers and users and is not intended for the promotion of third party services, products, websites, or organizations. Please refrain from posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, or any other form of unauthorized solicitation.

Spamming the Faster Technology Forums with senseless, inane, or empty messages to increase your post count, or simply to aggravate, will not be allowed.

This includes such things as chain letters and two-word "I agree" or "me too" responses. Continually posting the same topic on a particular forum, and posting the same question across several forums is also considered spamming, and is a violation of these guidelines.

Faster Technology has a very strict policy against piracy and the illegal use of copyrighted material. Linking or giving information about any site that distributes illegal software, seeking help in circumventing copyright laws, possessing or distributing illegal copyrighted material, or encouraging software or media piracy are all grounds for account termination. This goes for all copyrighted material, including but not limited to software.

Keep it legal

It is unacceptable to post any material (i) that would infringe on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights of any party, (ii) that contains software viruses or any other computer code or files that are designed to disrupt, damage, or limit the functioning of any software or hardware, or (iii) that is deemed to be illegal by any local, state, federal, or international law, rule or regulation.

Be careful / buyer beware

Most people are happy to help out on these forums, but remember that their advice is theirs only and that you are responsible for deciding whether or not to follow it. If the advice given by a user sounds wrong to you, do not try it.  In addition, to protect your privacy, you should not post personal information on these forums including your home address, age, or phone number.  Furthermore, if any user asks you for personal information, such as an account number, address, password or credit card number, do not provide it.

Right to remove content / limit access - moderator intervention

Faster Technology has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor and/or moderate the Faster Technology Forums. Faster Technology reserves the right to change any or all other parts of these User Guidelines at its sole discretion and without notice, including but not limited to implementing Rules of Conduct, Terms of Service and/or other measures.

The Faster Technology Moderator's goal is not to play Forum cop. A Moderator will make occasional changes and comments. We encourage you to send comments and suggestions using the report abuse tool in the main forum page. However, Faster Technology retains the right, at its sole discretion, to limit users' access to these forums and to remove material that, in the sole judgment of Faster Technology or a designated moderator, does not comply with the current User Guidelines or with the Web Site Terms of Use, or that is otherwise inappropriate for these forums, harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. Use of the Faster Technology Forums is a privilege, not a right.


Faster Technology does not allow any form of advertising, therefore promoting websites or products in the forum is inappropriate. Hyperlinks to 3rd party web sites are allowed only if they pertain directly to the discussion topic.
