I'd like to take this opportunity to point out some guidelines for participating in the Cartotalk forum.
1: Cartotalk is a forum for cartographic professionals. This means that discussions that are not about maps, mapmaking or related topics such as GIS, remote sensing and photogrammetry are considered off-topic and should go in the appropriate area (i.e. Off-topic)
2: If you post, please make sure it's in the right area. Please don't post the same message in multiple areas. We'd like to keep things clean by having all the discussion on a certain topic contained within one thread.
3: Please keep the discussions on this forum clean and professional. Please refrain from using foul language, personal attacks etc.
4: Please try and keep the commercial content of your post to a minimum. Official announcements and press releases are allowed in the News & Press Releases area. Please note it's perfectly okay to explain why you think application A is better for a certain purpose than application B, just don't turn it into an advertisement.
5: The language used on this forum is English. Please respect the fact that not everybody here is a native English speaker.
6: For administrative reasons, it is not allowed to register multiple usernames through the same email/IP address.
7: Spamming is not allowed at all and will lead to removal of the posts and a suspension or even removal of your account.
