Some guidelines and rules

After many questions and PM's, I have come up with a set of rules we can live by.


#1 ---- Please Read The Following VERY Carefully. Take the minute, it's worth your time. Many people are saying "I didn't know that was a rule..." when they are CLEARLY laid out here.

#1b.
A. This is a public forum
Anything you post here will be available to anyone on the Internet for an indefinite period of time. In addition to being accessible to visitors to this site, your comments may also appear in search engine results that reference this title.

b. Be relevant Be sure your posts are relevant to the topic and the post.

c. Be clear and concise, do your homework The most useful posts are clear, concise, and based on facts.

d. Show respect--the essential requirement for participation This means respect for fellow participants, and for wide differences in points of view. It means language appropriate for general conversation, with nothing insulting, racist, obscene or sexually explicit. Be aware that what you consider sharp and funny may not seem so to a distant reader and that sniping and smart remarks aimed at others are not acceptable.

e. No preaching This is a shared, semi-public space for exchange and learning. It is not the place to grandstand, to preach from a personal soapbox, or for extended single-issue campaigning.

f. No DRAMA. If you want drama, go find it on another forum.

#2 - This is a family site. Our wives, children and parents are on here as well. When posting, remember that, use appropiate language, common sense and behavior.

#2a - These forums are open for people of all ages, you are expected to follow these guidelines, this includes PM's or e-mails. If you can not communicate sensibly then you can not be trusted to use these forums and will be banned.

#2b - No Price Bashing. If somebody has a item listed and you disagree with the price and you just HAVE to say something, send them a PM. Don't post in their thread. The seller owns the parts, they know what they want for it, nobody says you have to buy it.

#3 - Cursing and profanity are a natural part of modern life, and it happens. Please refrain from doing it here in the forum. Forum Moderators may warn you if you are being too gratuitous or over-the-top. The judgement of what constitutes this will be left up to their discretion. My advice is - we should all at least try to keep it somewhat civilized here. Posts containing bad language will be edited or deleted at the moderators / admins discretion, if you continue to post threads containing bad language then all your posts will be moderated and will require approval before they are displayed.

#4 - No pornography in signatures / avatars / threads. This is an offroad site, not a dating site. We all appreciate good looking Women / Men. Tasteful pics of your GF / BF are fine.

#4a - No NWS - No 35% - This is a family site, I will not tolerate NWS or 35%. Lots of places on the net where you can see or post all the NWS you want, This site is not one of them

#5 - No Warez/Serials/Cracks/Hax0ring/Cheats/etc, including links.

#6 - Bumping of threads is allowed if the thread has been pushed to second page (using default view age), this rule applies especially for the "Classifieds" forum.

#7 - No "look at my eBay auction" or "Craiglist for sale posts" posts or other auctions.

#7b - Blue Star members may post eBay, Craigslist or auction links in the classifieds.

#8 - No double or cross posting. Particularly in the For Sale forum. If you already have a post for the item you wish to sell bring it back to the top, don't start a new post.

#9 - Trolling - Don't do it. - Trolling defined: "Troll," in the context of message boards and the like, describes somebody who is posting just to be confrontational and \ or a nuisance. Trolling gets you banned! Fast

#10 - Name changes - User name changes will only be permitted to correct typographic errors, simplify long and/or complex names, avoid confusion with other user names, or in an emergency (i.e. cyberstalking, with detailed explanation.)

#11 - No Business Advertising unless you are an registered vendor. To register as a vendor, go to your usercp and choose paid subscriptions. Questions on Business advertising, send a PM to Rastus.

#12 - READ #1 again

These are subject to change at any time.

to clarify #7: eBay or other auction links may be posted in a thread where it has relevance to the subject.

this rule is in place for those spammers who signup post their eBay link (in the classifieds) and never return.

rule #7b - Blue Star members may post eBay or other links in the classifieds.
