SRTFORUM RULES​


1. Blatant trolling is not allowed. If you have nothing constructive to offer, head to the War-Stories section.

2. Post topics in the appropriate section. This is especially important for topics that belong in Off-Topic & War-Stories.

3. No material that is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). This includes posts, avatars & signatures.

  • No pornographic or nude pictures, drawings, animations, etc. or links to sites containing such content.
  • No pictures, drawings, or animations with an overly sexual connotation; ie. no girls bent over wearing a thong.
  • No pictures, drawings, or animations that are graphic in nature; ie. no dead bodies with gruesome injuries.
4. Keep thread titles, signatures and avatars "clean". No profanity.

5. If you feel something negative towards a user/post, please try to state your case in a calm and respectable fashion. Replying to the post just to stir the pot and not offering anything of value is highly frowned upon.

6. Vendor "Discussion/Reviewing/Complaints" are allowed. However, it is not allowed to the point that you can make a post in every thread the vendor participates in to ruin his day, etc. Make your thread in whatever section you feel appropriate, state your case, and be done with it. Harassment will not be tolerated.

  • If you do not have vendor status you cannot advertise your products. This includes signatures. If you need to get vendor status pm one of the moderators to get the information on how to get vendor status. Links to FS threads are allowed. See post #4 for more information.
7. Post Whoring is against the rules. If you don't have anything constructive to add, don't add anything. Determining what is Post Whoring is at the sole discretion of the administration team.

8. No personal threats, attacks or harassment. This includes pm's, posts and threads.

9. No puppet/smurf accounts. If you share your computer with other members of this forum, please contact a moderator.

10. The trader rating system is taken seriously on this forum. Abuse of the system is not allowed. If you get a negative rating and you're not happy, PM a moderator and we will look into it. DO NOT LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE LEFT YOU A NEGATIVE FEEDBACK. Do not leave feedback for fun. Positive or negative, it is not allowed.




Bans will be on a case by case basis determined by the Staff.



Subsection rules will be enforced IN ADDITION to these rules. If a subsection's rule contradicts a site rule, the subsection's rule becomes the one to follow.

VENDOR RULES​

Now that the board is officially supporting Sponsors/Vendors, it is time to put the advertising rules into effect.

1. Advertising from non supporting vendors is not allowed. Period. Do not post a link to your site, link to your business, contact information, pricing, etc. Do not attempt to pimp your wares on the forum.

The forum costs money to run, and until you contribute to the forums, you have no place in using it to promote your own business.

2. Discussion of products by a non supporting vendor is allowed. However, when the discussion turns into an advertisement and the vendor particpates, we will have a problem.

The line is thin, and we will use our judgement as to when that line is being crossed.

3. Group buys from supporting vendors are allowed. However, group buys from non supporting vendors (especially on products that our supporting vendors sell) will be heavily frowned upon.

4. Business signatures are not allowed from non supporting vendors.

It is in your better interest to support your vendors, and in turn, they will be supporting you. This promotes a tight, well supported and funded community which will help promote innovation.

There will be more rules added, for now, I would appreciate it if non supporting vendors would please remove signature images, text, etc. promoting their business.

To become a vendor pm one of the moderators for the information.

Violation of the other rules will result in 1 permanent infraction point the first offense, 2 permanent infraction points the 2nd offense, 3 permanent infraction points for the 3rd and after offense. With these infractions, the 3rd offense will result in a 5-day ban, 4th offense a 30-day ban and 5th offense a perm-ban.


************************************************************************************

Reporting Bad Posts
-
Below a users name there is a button with an exclamation point on it. When you click this button a form is generated asking what is wrong with the post and it is sent to the moderators. The form sends an email to the mods with information about why the post is bad and a link to the questionable post.

Your identity is only viewable to the moderators/admins and will not be revealed to anyone else. If a moderator deems there is something wrong with the post they will act upon it. Reporting bad posts or posts that are not following the rules will help keep the forums clean.

After speaking with a few members it has become evident that the rules needed to be clearly written out without being jumbled in with the rest of the site rules. My post above shows clearly the rules that applly specifically to the For Sale forum.

Read closely that most rule infractions will result in an immediate deletion of your thread, no questions asked. If you can not abide by these rules then you will not be able to sell on this site until you do. Continually posting in this section without abiding by these rules will result in a(n) infraction and/or ban.

If there are questions, concerns or comments please feel free to address them via PM to myself, one of the other For Sale forum moderators or the Senior Moderators on this site.
