Forum rules and guidelines

Please read these rules and guidelines to posting here on the Pelican Parts OT forum:

First, the rules Originally posted 07-03-2001:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. No flaming: debates are ok, but responding to threads just to incite or start an argument or conflict is not permitted. Personal attacks, if hostile in nature, are not allowed.

2. No pointless threads or excessive posting allowed: Yes, this is an off topic forum, but let's keep the subject matter of an intelligent nature. If you're bored, play a game on your playstation or better yet, wash your car! Posting responses to increase your 'number of posts' is also not allowed.

3. Absolutely no pornographic, objectionable, or illegal material allowed. No pictures, links to pictures, discussion of porn...etc. is allowed. Objectionable material includes graphic gore, tasteless jokes, and any off-color subject matter. Such posts will be deleted, and such posts are grounds for banning.

4. No discussion of any illegal activity permitted. This not only jeoparizes Pelican Parts and Wayne, it will ultimately jeopardize you! Linking to any site that deals with illegal activity is not allowed. Posting information on how to defraud a company or misuse a product or any promotion of any illegal activity will not be tolerated. Again, such posts are grounds for banning. Observe all copyright laws when posting copyrighted material.

5. Do not impersonate other people or use fake aliases. Only one userid per person allowed.

6. No profanity allowed. Make every effort to express your views without resorting to trash talk.

7. Respect other's privacy: no posting of pictures, phone numbers, email addresses...etc. of another individual without their permission.

Added on 11-24-04:
What matters here is that we treat each other with mutual respect, and deal with each other in a mature manner.

There will be posts in the off topic area that will have heated debates. Please approach such threads with caution: be as clear as possible in posting your views, so you won't be mis-interpretted. Heated debates are good, as long as people enter them with a mature attitude and are willing to "agree to disagree." Mutual respect goes a long way.

I don't believe these guidelines are unreasonable. Let's have fun here, but keep the peace too.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update from 08-14-2013:
Addendum to the rules, aka "the BAN schedule."

When a user is banned, the following schedule will be enforced:

- First infraction from this point forward = 3 day ban.
- Second infraction = 6 day ban
- Third = 2 week ban
- Fourth = 1 month ban
- Fifth = 2 month ban
- Sixth = 4 month ban
...and so on.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, some posting etiquette:
The Subject line
Please use this to accurately describe what the thread is about. Simply stating: HEY: CHECK THIS OUT! is not descriptive enough. Perhaps try: Check out my new widget instead. Those who are not interested in widgets won't have to check out someone's new toy.

Using QUOTES
Often, when one wishes to respond to, or agree with what someone else posted, we see the following:
Quote:
Originally posted by someone else
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blha blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blha blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blha blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blha blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah I like the color green. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blha blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blha blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
Me too!

Note that there is no reason to quote the entire post, just use the ". . ." to indicate that only a section of what was originally written is being quoted:
Quote:
Originally posted by someone else
. . .I like the color green.. . .
I like green too.

Save some bandwidth!

Also: there is no need to include a picture in a quote - just do the following:
Quote:
Posted by someone else
(Picture of hot car)
That's a hot car, man!

If one is quoting something from another source, it is good to include a link to the original site, and shorten the quote using ". . ." However, it is important not to take things out of context when abbreviating quotes.

Dealing with moderators
If you view something here that requires attention by a moderator, you can click on the 'Report this post to a moderator.' When doing so, please include some detailed informtion on what you are reporting, including the user, what page said post was made on, and any other details. The greater the detail supplied to the moderator, the easier it will be to track down the offensive post.

Trying to get things by the moderator, like inappropriate pictures, links, personal attacks is not tolerated in this forum. When you play the game, "Stump the moderator" you automatically lose.

There is a fine line between censorship and "posting freedom." Please keep in mind that this BBS is intended for auto enthusiasts. It is NOT an 'anything goes' forum. (See the rules above) Use common sense and post only appropriate topics here. If you are uncertain a topic is appropriate here, send a quick note to the moderator. That is a better action to take than posting something and then waiting for the moderator to react to the thread! Use common sense - remember: something that one may consider to be inoffensive may be very offensive to others. It is best to err on the conservative side regarding questionable posts. If you want to view things that are inappropriate to post here, no one is keeping you from surfing on over to such sites.

The OT Forums were created so that the technical forums wouldn't be cuttered with off topic posts. The Pelican Parts OT Forum has grown over the years. It is a very popular forum for members to frequent. Many enjoy posting and reading here. So enjoy these forums.

Happy posting,
Z-man, OT Forum Moderator.

I would not do this moderating job even for money, so thanks for taking your valuable time to keeping all of us on the "straight & narrow" insofar as the rules of the game and what this board is intended for.

Your right, decorum is required but passionate + perfectionist = porschers
(no wonder the threads are as long and driven, would you have it any other way?)

Z-Man,
It's a hard, hard job, just like GW said. :-)

Keep up the good work. I know, it can be thankless job.

I thought the first rule was "You do not talk about Off Topic Board".

Keep up the excellent work, Z. There are not a few here who will necessitate it.

Wow, so not only is that button a relic, but the "sentiment" it represents re-tread! So the left was intellectually bankrupt, unable to coin even a new mantra for its minions, from that point forward? There's them 'progressives' applyin' their big fat brains 'n' all!

(woo-hoo!!! now even this thread is a partisan free-for-all)

STAY PUFT, Mike. You know,GOZER THE GOZERIAN, GOZER

TRAVELLER:



Best. Movie. Ever.
