RULES FOR POSTING TO OUR FORUM
Multiple accounts are not allowed. Members found to have multiple accounts will be subject to immediate and permanent banning.
1. Posting & Civility
Politeness is rule one here. We expect spirited debates, as long as members extend others respect.
Our forum focuses primarily on musical instruments and stage. Please stay within this topic when creating and participating in existing conversations.
Our forum has several sub-forums. Before you post, please make sure you are posting in the correct forum so members can better answer your questions. Any topic posted in the wrong forum will be deleted without warning.
Please refrain from creating duplicate threads/posts. Duplicate threads/posts will be deleted without warning.
This website is read by people of all ages; including young kids. Please refrain from cursing. This includes usernames, avatars, signatures, and all other content.
Political related signatures are not allowed. Please restrict signature content to musical instruments and gear related services. No music store websites are allowed in signatures. The intent of this rule is to prevent music store spam in signatures.
3. Copyright & Privacy
Do not post or share copyrighted material, links or products. Offending members will be subject to immediate and permanent banning.
Do not post private email or messages you have received without the permission of the sender. Offending members will be subject to immediate and permanent banning.
This community does not condone hit n’ run posting or advertising of unrelated material. Offending members will be subject to immediate and permanent banning.
5. Vendors & Advertising
We allow continually contributing members to discuss products of interest with our members. We allow vendors to post and participate in a support-based fashion only. We DO NOT ALLOW posting by vendors seeking merely to redirect traffic to their websites or storefronts. Violators will be permanently banned without warning.
6. Chronic Offenders
Moderators reserve the right to take action against disruptive and chronic offenders. Moderators may attempt to correct the problem via warning. Moderators may take further action if necessary.
7. Reporting Posts
If you feel a post breaks one of these rules, please report it via the “report button” in the post. Reported posts are reviewed by moderators and are handled accordingly.
For most violations, the first offense will result in a warning via Private Message or in the thread. In the case of a second violation, the user will more than likely be banned permanently.
9. Moderator Actions
Upon violation, moderators will take action. This may include: the deletion of words or phrases, removal of an entire post, closing of a thread that leads off-topic or gets heated, warning a user, and or banning of a user.
Rules are subject to change based on the needs of the forum. We try to announce and highlight all changes; but members should periodically review the rules.
Thank you for reading our rules and please enjoy your time at our forum. Return to Forum
