Update To Forum Rules

Recommended Posts

Salty Dog

For those who weren't aware, the new and hopefully improved Forum Rules  were posted in November 2018.

We have been tweaking them since that time.

Just yesterday we updated and added a new item to "Part 02. Respect To Others", as shown in red below:

Forum Rules

02. RESPECT To Others 

  • Posting a smart or sarcastic reply to a thread, especially where someone is asking for genuine assistance, is completely unnecessary, uncalled for and will not be tolerated. Violators will be warned, suspended, or banned.
  • Personal attacks of any kind against another member will not be tolerated. Violators will be warned, suspended, or banned.
  • Posts that could be considered insulting, degrading, or negative towards another member's family will not be tolerated. The post will be removed and the violator will be warned, suspended, or banned.
  • Everyone is entitled to their opinions. Just because you may not agree, it doesn't give you the right to attack them for stating theirs. If someone doesn't agree and says so, that's okay. If they don't agree, but attack you personally, that's not okay.

 

The rules are not all encompassing. Like any basically stated rules, they are subject to individual interpretation.

Staff members will strive to be objective in determining a violation, compelling observance of, or compliance with the rules.

The most common forms of enforcement, is a staff member requesting compliance, and/or hiding posts that are in violation.

As to hiding post. Members are often miffed as to why one of their posts is hidden when they were not in violation. This occurs when a member has quoted a post that has been hidden. Since the quoted post has been hidden for cause, it's not appropriate to allow it to remain unhidden as a quote elsewhere.
