Howdy Members,

I've created a Forum Rules Template (PDF) for anyone wanting to create a Forum Guidelines page for their community.

Edit the policy as you see fit based on your rules.

It includes all of the main things.

The MyForum is what you want to replace with your forum name.

No credit to me is necessary.

Very well written. It'll give me good ideas when writing my own guidelines. (I still feel awkward using the resource as is even after getting permission. xD
