. POSTING RULES

Note: rules of conduct apply to posting and all profile fields of your user account, including, but not limited to username, user title, web site, avatar, signature, location, or any other informational field that is available for edit in your personal profile.

While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post or link to any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, and sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

BASIC RULES

1) Flaming : Do not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest. Debates are fine, but argue with the point, not the person.

2) Trolling: Do not come to this site with the purpose of starting a dispute. Note that a person disagreeing with your opinion is NOT trolling; keep it civil, even if you're sure the other person is wrong. Anything seen as trolling will result in you being banned.

3) Spamming: Please do not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. This includes "bump threads" and posts intended merely to increase one's post count. Worthless posts with no content and nonsensical posts eat up space and waste everyone's time. These are not allowed on any of the forums.

4) Offensive Posts, Links or Images: Do not use profanity, racial, ethnic, religious, or other slurs, or post, or any other offensive material. This includes:

We have members from different religions and backgrounds. Even if you express a point of view that is very popular in your culture, it may generate a negative reaction from members elsewhere so please be wise!

Awesome Audio does filter strong lanugage but we do hope that our members can act like adults.

5) Advertising: Posting of advertisements for products or services, affiliate links, links to promote websites, and so forth is at Admin discretion.

6) No Disclosure of Personal Information: Do not disclose any other member's email, real name, address, phone number, IP address, or other personal information. This includes the posting contents of emails and private messages without the sender's consent. Do not bring personal disputes into the forums. Bans and warnings issued to other users are considered personal information.

7) Misleading Titles: At Awesome Audio the subject line of the post should be as informative as possible about the content of the post. This also reduces duplicate posts.

Duplicate Posts: Check the first 2 pages of the board before posting and make sure someone has not already done a post similar to yours.

9) Personal Problems: Please don't post all about your personal issues with members or non-members on the board. This site is for car enthusiasts and the occasional banter. We don't want to hear who is cheating on who etc.

10) Car Numberplates: On this site you may or may not post images of your with it's number plate displayed.

11) Playing the Role of Moderator: You're not a moderator so don't correct posters like one. If you have a problem with a post, use the "Report This Post" button, rather than playing the parent. More often than not, that causes more problems than it fixes. Let us handle what is ours to handle.

12) Attacking/Disobeying the Admin/Moderators: If you disagree with something the moderators did, fine, disagree and let us know, but do it politely through PM or email. Dancing around the rules, purposely skirting them just to see us twitch will not help you out much, either.

On the same note: No posting on behalf of someone who's banned. That'll probably get you banned, too. The idea of being banned is that they're no longer a part of this online forum community and are no longer allowed to interact here. No making threads that give glory to banned people. It's not a violation to mention them in passing but no threads that focus on them. Prohibited threads include "What banned member do you miss/would you bring back?" type of threads. They're banned; don't give them that attention. If a moderator gives you specific instructions in a warning, and you blatantly disregard it, you are subject to being banned.

13) Discussion of illegal drugs: Discussion of illegal drugs should be kept within academic or newsworthy limits only. "How to" discussions and "I'm so stoned" posts may result in repercussions ranging from a warning to immediate and permanent banning, depending on previous history, context of post and nature/content of post.

14) Forum Specific Rules: Please check the sticky threads at the top of each forum for any forum specific rules if applicable.

15) One Account per User: multiple accounts are not permitted. If you have a good reason for needing more than one account, contact an administrator and ask for permission.

16) Thread Hijacking: taking a thread off-topic to pursue one's own agenda.

17) Shouting: excessive use of caps, large fonts.

18) Ban Circumvention: The actions of trying to get around a certain ban that has been put on you such as registering under a new e-mail, username, or IP address will not be tolerated. This will result in a permanent ban on all levels and contacting your Internet Service Provider.

19) Abuse of Report Bad Post: Multiple reports per thread, duplicate or frivolous reports will be deemed abuse and subject to warning. Every report is addressed. Please do not report something more than once.

20) Ignorant Trouble Making If you are thought to be causing trouble by a moderator, you will be removed from the forum. This includes leading another poster into a thread or “board trap” where one member tries to make the other one snap by messaging them or subtly suggesting something that would cause one to argue back. Our staff is fair and if they pass judgment that you are here to cause problems, you will be removed. NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

These rules are subject to change. We reserve the right to remove, edit or move posts at our discretion.

II. POSTING GUIDELINES

When posting, understand that you're trying to communicate with others.

1) Write in English.

2) Always do a quick check for spelling/grammar mistakes.

3) Format your post in an easily legible manner. Use the preview button often.

4) Be concise and articulate as much as possible.

5) Use enter for paragraphs.

6) Capitalize Correctly. All uppercase or all lowercase is hard to read.

7) Use correct punctuation. Avoid run-on sentences.

Try to avoid a lot of “text speak”, “net speak” or slang. The purpose of language is being understood, not sounding cool.

9) Never invent acronyms, use as few acronyms as possible.

10) Read your post over before posting it. Try to catch typos.

11) Please check to see if a topic is already posted. Do not post multiple topics on the same subject.

12) Post topics in the appropriate forum.

III. SIGNATURE RULES

Signatures are only permitted if they are either that of ONLY text OR an Official Signature designed by a Awesome Audio Designer.

Note: Signature guidelines are enforced to help keep bandwidth costs down and improve the viewing experience for all members. Remember: Members are here to post -- not to observe and/or endlessly scroll past large signatures.

IV. AVATAR GUIDELINES

Off-site avatars CANNOT be uploaded to Awesome Audio. Please use one of the avatars provided through your control panel.

V. THE THREE STRIKE RULE

If you violate one of the rules and/or the staff feel that you have:

The 1st step is to remove your posting rights for 24 hours from when a staff member has put the block on your posting rights. You will receive a PM as to why this has happened and your warning meter will increase. Only staff and yourself can see this meter so no one else will no what your level is at or why you have gotten blocked for 24 hours.

The 2nd step is to remove your posting rights for one (1) week.

The 3rd step is to remove your permanently from the community.

I trust my staff and am behind them 100%. Do not try to appeal it with me via PM. I have received enough personal messages in the last two weeks. If you don't want to be banned or blocked, then don't break the rules that were made by the members when this board started.

Major offenses will not be tolerated.

VI. Reporting Bad Posts

To report a post that violates the rules click on the report bad post icon within the post and give a brief description of the rule being broken. The icon is located in the user information field of each post. Be specific in your report. DO NOT PM, email, or post in the Forum Discussion board to report offensive posts. Usage of the Report Bad Post feature is the only acceptable, and most efficient means of reporting posts that violate our rules. All reports are kept confidential. You will not be contacted regarding your report. Whatever action is taken, if any, will remain confidential.

VII. PRIVACY POLICY

This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above, they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The email address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

Other than that just play nice and have fun!
