1 Forum Rules! Read before posting!!! on Wed Feb 01, 2012 3:36 am

Following are a list of Rules that will govern the forum. These rules will be strictly enforced by the moderators and administrators. Failure to comply with these rules can and will result in the ban and or warning of the individual responsible.


Showing disrespect towards staff will not be tolerated.

We on the Shocker Owners Forum work hard to make this site the best possible. We provide honest opinions as well as up to date information. If you feel the need to disrespect or bad mouth the admins and mods you will be banned and we will notify other forums of your actions.



Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling

Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated. Treat others on these message boards as you would expect them to treat you. Talking trash about another user is a quick way to earn a banning, as is posting topics specifically to provoke a negative response from someone (aka trolling). Any threats will constitute a reason for banning.


Personal Information

You may not distribute private messages, instant message logs, e-mail, etc. unless both parties have provided consent. This is illegal and if you do so legal action may occur.






Spam

Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages to gain more stars is highly frowned upon! This includes such things as party posts, chain letters, ect.. If you are found to be doing these action you may be banned.The posting of false and/or misleading links is grounds for suspension and depending on the content of the pages the misleading link goes to, a ban. If you feel the need to post make sure it is useful and knowledgeable. The staff may edit or delete your post if it is indeed false and/or misleading.


Impersonating Other Users / Accessing Another User's Account

You may not impersonate another board member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited. If you do so it will result in a ban.

Users may only have one account.

The reason for having one account is simply so trolling and flaming don't happen. Also, if a mod or admin bans you do NOT try to create another account, we will simply ip ban you.


Signatures

Please be aware that Signatures are under the same rules as regular posts. Attacking people in a Signature is also against the rules. No Adult Content. Only 5 lines of text are allowed (blank lines count).


Posting Images and/or Videos

Pornographic and other adult content is strictly prohibited. If you are caught you will be banned without question. If you are unsure your image or video is appropriate don't post it.


Evading a Ban

If you log onto the Boards and receive a message that you have been banned, please submit an unban request and wait for a Board moderator to get in touch with you. It is not acceptable to return to the boards under another username. If you do, your ban time most likely will be extended. You may not publicly complain about or demand a reason for another user's ban. Banned users have the responsibility of answering for themselves on their own. If you have an issue with a Ban, please PM a Moderator or the Forum Owner.


Profanity

Profanity is allowed on this forum. If you think its to offensive, it is. Racial or sexist slurs are grounds for instant bans. Do not over use this privilege, it makes you look stupid and the mods will delete it.


Money Making Schemes

Links to pyramid schemes, Money making schemes, or questionable 'Profit-per-Click' advertising sites are not allowed. Likewise, charity, donation, solicitation and begging threads posted by users are not allowed. Threads will be closed, and users may be banned.


Moderation

You may not re-edit a post that has already been edited by a moderator (a mod's decision is final). You may not bait, insult, flame, or otherwise abuse a moderator; mods are here to make the forum a better place for everyone. If you have a problem with the moderation, please contact that mod with your concerns (we take them seriously).


Questionable Content

These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. These issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and/or deflamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense.

Politics and religion are NOT allowed. Mods will delete your post if you post political and/or religious content.

Chat

All forum rules apply to the chat box, if a moderator tells you the topic of conversation needs to be changed, please do so.

Have fun. Share your knowledge and maybe learn something Wink
