Official Forum Guidelines

General

-Respect other members. Posts that are "bashing" or "inappropriate" in any nature, or harassing other members will NOT be tolerated. Do not flame, badger, hijacking other member’s threads, disrespect or taunt anyone on the forums. This also goes for our Supporting Vendors as well. Posts or threads that are obvious attacks on other members or are blatant attempts to stir controversy on this site, will be deleted and an appropriate action will be taken. We will NOT tolerate abusive and or immature actions.

-Mild adult language is permitted with the understanding that if it discriminates against a member, is unnecessarily excessive, unlawful, threatening, abusive it will be removed immediately and you will be removed from the site.

-Make an effort to post in the appropriate section. Post can/will be moved at the behest of the Administrators/Moderators.

-Do not knowingly post any information, software, or other material which violates or infringes upon copyrights, trademarks, etc.

-Do not place advertisements, graphics or web/phone contact info to a business in signatures, avatars, profile pictures or posts for commercial intent unless you are a Supporting Vendor. We also prohibit link(s) to external spamming agencies/websites.

-Selling or direct solicitation of ANYTHING in the forums or by PM is not allowed and will result in the deletion of the post. Members CANNOT post links to products or web pages that directly compete with Supporting Vendors of this site. Links to products that are general in nature and do not compete directly with Supporting Vendors may be allowed at the behest of the Administrators/Moderators.

-Promotion of Non-Supporting forum vendors: Repeated promotion of a non-supporting forum vendor is not allowed. A member repeatedly referring to a non-supporting vendor for the
purpose of generating business is considered SPAM and will not be allowed and those posts will be removed. Members who continue to do this may lose their posting privileges.

-Soliciting for donation: Posting to solicit for donations is not allowed on the forum unless it is specifically approved by the forum Administrators/Moderators. Members must first obtain permission from the forum BEFORE posting. If the reason for solicitation for donations cannot be verified, the request will be denied. Any posts put up for solicitation for donation without first obtaining permission will be removed. Members who continue to do this may lose their posting privileges.

-Private party ads are acceptable as long as they are posted in the Classifieds forum section and posted by private sellers. The classified section is not intended for private entrepreneurs. If your business has a product or service that you feel can benefit our community, contact us BEFORE you post! [email protected] or contact the Administrator and Moderator Team

-Public posting of PM's is not allowed and will be removed. Repeat offenders will lose their posting privileges.

-Posting personal information: Posting of forum and non-forum members personal information (i.e. addresses, phone numbers etc.) is not allowed and will be removed immediately. Members continuing to post personal information can lose their posting privileges.

-Users posting links to other forums in signatures, posts or PM's in effort to generate traffic to another site will be up to the input of the Administrator/Moderator Staff and you may be notified if action needs to be taken.

-Discussions, feedback and comments are welcome here as long as they are relevant and insightful. We reserve the right to edit as appropriate, delete profane, harassing, abusive and spam comments or posts, and block repeat offenders.

-Adult type content is NOT allowed, period. We have people of all ages and walks of life, if you wouldn’t want your kids or wife seeing or reading it than neither do we.

-For Sale threads can only be bumped once in a 7-day period. If you bump it on Monday it cannot be bumped again until the following Monday. This applies to ALL threads in the Classified section and Supporting Vendor threads within their forum. If a thread is bumped prematurely the bump post will be removed. Responding to and engaging questions is not considered thread bumping.

-Members cannot access the classifieds until they have 30 content filled posts. Speed/Fluff posting for the purpose of rushing to the classifieds will have your posts removed, and your account banned.

-Duplicate accounts (members having more than one account) are prohibited & may result in suspension of posting privileges & possible banning of all your user accounts.

Supporting Vendors

-Only those who carry the Vendor tags, badges, or User titles may post commercially.

-You are encouraged to be engaging in your post, members feel like you are more a part of the community.

-If you plan to post commercially on the site you must have a vendor account. To inquire about becoming a site vendor please email [email protected] or contact the Administrator

-Official Supporting Vendors are allowed to list links to their web pages and contact information in their signatures. Pricing, item descriptions and special sales will NOT be allowed in vendor signatures.

-Supporting Vendors are allowed to post pricing within threads.

-Supporting Vendors are allowed to post specific items for sale inside their own forum, not in Discussion forums. The only exception allowed in the Discussion forums to this is in response or answer to a member looking for said product.

-A Supporting Vendor is not allowed to post in another Supporting Vendors forum section or thread within a Supporting Vendors forum, they can post freely in a Discussion thread even if started by a Supporting Vendor.

-Supporting Vendors are not allowed to use other Supporting Vendors names in their threads. Please use common courtesy at all times and remain as professional as possible. Otherwise, we reserve the right to remove your posts, accusations and or advertising altogether.

-For Sale threads can only be bumped once in a 7-day period. If you bump it on Monday it cannot be bumped again until the following Monday. If a thread is bumped prematurely the bump post will be removed. Responding to questions and engaging the community is not considered thread bumping.

Members will be warned for making posts that do not adhere to the community rules and guidelines. Members that refuse to adhere to site guidelines will be removed from the site.

Moderators and Administrators have the final word. If you have a problem or a complaint, please direct it to the administrators instead of posting in the public forums. They will quickly take the appropriate actions.
