1 No Spam - if post you anything that is not related to acoustics here one of three things will happen depending on the level of the offense. Joining the forum with the sole purpose of creating links to raise search engine rating is not allowed.
a) you will be warned not to do it again
b) you will be banned from the forum
c) legal measures will be taken againist you
2 You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.
3 You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. ON topic dicussions have never been closed or removed here and the only edits have beeen in the achives mostly headers and footers and removing layers of "reply to" quotation. Think before you post, what you say is part of the permanent archive.
4 While manufacturers and professionals in the acoustics are welcome and an important part of this forum, this is not the place to sell products and services. It is as welcome here as would be at an AES or ASA meeting.
5 Repect Copyrights and understand fair use, it is legal to quote others works for the purpose of discussion, however you should state the source when you are quoting and limit the quotation as much as possible. Here is a link to part of Stanford Unversity's "Fair Use Guidelines" if you are unfamiliar with fair use http://fairuse.stanford.edu/Copyright_a ... 9-a.html#1 If you violate this Eric will lecture you on it.
Attempts to restrict fair use will only cause me to give you and your lawyers a long lecture on fair use and copyright law. Trust me I can go on for days.
6) Since the purpose of the this forum is to further the understanding of small room acoustics, "unsubstantiated preconceptions" are not acceptable. If you are developing a new "theory", standard scientific method is what is expected in this group if your hypothesis fails, go back to step one do not continue to push your "theory" until you revise your hypothesis or you can prove a test had errors. Here are a few links if you don't know what scientific method is
