Forum Rules and Guidelines
« on: July 07, 2008, 10:47:31 AM »
NO IDIOTS
This is the only behavioural rule of the board. While we tolerate swearing, gentle attacks, off-color remarks, and stupidity, enough is enough. This is considered 'locker room etiquette'. Excessive trolling and general asshattery will be called out, and dealt with. Forum moderation will be scarce, as we encourage free speech, but dished out when necessary.

POST IN THE APPROPRIATE FORUM
Please read each forum description before posting to ensure you are posting in the correct forum. Off topic posts will be moved to the correct forum.

NO DUPLICATE OR REPEAT POSTS
If no-one answers your question or responds to your post, please "bump" it rather than posting it again. Posting the same question over and over or in every forum will just annoy people and will not get answers.

USE APPROPRIATE TITLES
Titles like Help Me, or I'm Stuck serve little value in a forum. Try to be short but descriptive when submitting your post.

NO ILLEGAL SUGGESTIONS
Respect the copyrights of other people, websites, software and printed media. Please no pointers, how-tos, advocating any illegal activity. Posts regarding such things as warez, crackz etc. will be deleted and the user warned.

This includes any reference to racing on the street. We are SAFE riders here, and any mention of racing will get your post deleted, and the poster warned.
Also included is the mention of 'stunting' anywhere but in a roped off parking lot, or the like. Street stunting is highly frowned upon, and will be removed at the administration's discretion.

NO SPAM/ADVERTISING
Do not use this site as a redirector or gateway to another site for the purpose of collecting click income or advertising. Although there are times when a link to another site is necessary for helping or answering a question, this site reserves the right to determine what is and is not SPAM. Any SPAM will be immediately deleted and the user warned. This includes advertising for business-related sales. For proper advertising, please contact the Administrator.

PRIVACY
You must respect the privacy of other members and individuals. Do not post personal information (i.e. addresses, phone numbers, passwords, personal identification numbers, or any other information considered private) without the express permission of the individual.

If you have any questions about actions taken against a post/thread please PM the appropriate forum's Moderator(s). All rules violations will be dealt with swiftly, up to and including a permanent ban of the user account. We reserve the right to delete posts/threads at our discretion.

We politely request that you fill out the location part of your profile, with the name of the town/city you are in. This just gives the users a better idea of who is around them. If you post this location in a thread somewhere, it is assumed you don't mind the town name being posted, and an admin will fill out this portion of your profile for you.
