FORUM GUIDELINES AND RULES


CONDUCT GUIDELINES & ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

I. To post or transmit hate speech, harassing content, threats of violence against another member written in a serious manner or joking with a hint of innuendo will lead from a 24 hour suspension or immediate suspension off the web site at the Administrators discretion

II. To post or transmit material in violation of copyright laws is a no-no.

III. No pissing matches. Its fine to disagree, but once a thread has run its course, and degenerated into little more than an insult fest, it will be locked. While this will require a judgment call by the Administrators & Moderators. The members of this site can keep our moderating to a minimum by exercising a little discretion and self- control. Excessive profanity will lead to a 24 hour suspension at the Administrations discretion.

IV. Pure trolling, either to upset someone or simply for your personal
enjoyment, is strictly prohibited. If you're here to cause trouble, it will be a very short stay. Immediate BAN and you will be reported to your ISP.

V. Posting or transmitting commercial or bulk e-mail through use of this bulletin board network will lead to a permanent ban off FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM.

VI. To post here or transmit off-topic and/or link to websites; in regards to selling merchandise (such as but not limited to t-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, key chains, coins, etc.) that may represent any current and/or future marketable interest of FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM by way of capitalizing on our platform through our members without the prior written permission or approval of FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM is not authorized, and is prohibited.

VII. No Spamming or Advertising on ANY FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM forum, regards to any product(s) your pushing, unless you are a paid advertiser, or have had the administrators approval! This guideline is for all Companies and Individuals, using our site to advertise their site of choice or trying to make money off the members! If you are an Individual selling parts for profit (new or used) on a large or semi large scale, this applies to you. This also Applies to competing websites. Promoting your website here is expressly forbidden.

VIII. No inappropriate pictures. No nudity will be permitted. If you have to think about posting a picture anywhere else on this Discussion Forum then it's a good bet you should not post it. To post or transmit content that is legally obscene or that violates child pornography statutes; that contains graphic depictions of sexual acts, or visual depictions of sexually explicit conduct involving children; or that contains depictions of children, the primary appeal of which is prurient. Any inappropriate avatars will be deleted at the discretion of an Administrator.

IX. Fraudulent practices or attempts to defraud another will lead to account suspension and banning. This is in direct reference to items offered for sale, trade, or leading someone on as a buyer.
I will turn you in! This also applies to people posting fabricated lies about another user or business. If you have a real issue, discuss it off the site, but don't make up lies because you're upset with someone. FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM will not put up with this kind of slander.

X. To engage in illegal, unlawful, or tortuous or other conduct that interferes with the FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM ability to provide service and/or interferes with the rights of others, is strictly prohibited. Such conduct includes, but is not limited to: libel, invasion of privacy, consumer fraud, unauthorized dissemination of trade secrets, violation of trademark laws, hacking, or transmittal of commercially restricted information. You will be turned in and dealt with accordingly.

XI. All For Sale posts shall have a price or prices, as well as your
location. No bids or auctions allowed here!!! If you don't know the
price of what you are selling, then you should do some research. If a Moderator or Administrator here asks you to post price(s) and you have not within a 12 hour time frame, they will delete your thread, period.

XII. It is against our policy for someone to post a complaint about a members price on whatever they are selling. If you don't like the price then skip it. Let it drop to the bottom on its own. They (potential buyers) will figure it out, why nobody is jumping on that particular item.

XIII. If you are a long time member, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate message board usage.

XIV. Multiple Posting - It is simply not acceptable to post your question more than once, or to post it in more than one forum. Choose the forum that your question or post best fits in, and place it there and only there. If, after posting, you feel it should be in another forum, private message the forum Moderator and ask if they would move it for you.

XV. No posts meant strictly to drive your post count up, or otherwise abuse server resources. If you make a post to drive your post count up, two times the number of posts made to increase your post count will be removed from your count.

XVI. No Dummy Accounts register using only one user name. Creating multiple user accounts or flooding the board will be considered a denial-of-service attack on the forums and will result in your being banned from the forum and reported to your ISP.

XVII. Name changes: there are very few instances that warrant a user name change. If you need to change your name contact and Administrator and tell them you are changing your user name. Register the new name and an Administrator will delete your old account. If you do not notify an Administrator of the new account, it will be assumed to be a dummy account and dealt with as stated previously.

XVIII. Posts regarding politics or religion are strongly discouraged. These posts tend to create pissing matches and will be closed.
XIV. As of October 15th 2005 subscribing members will be the only ones permitted to post for sale and want to buy ads on any classified section of this site. All other rules of buying and selling still apply. FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM, its administrators or staff are not responsible for any transactions on or off the forums. We will work hard to ensure you a smooth transaction, and help in the event you may need it, but all for sale and trade areas are buyer beware. Any persons who have misrepresented an item, lie about an item, fail to deliver, or are in violation of any of the rules will forfeit there subscription fees and be banned from FORDODGETRUCKSONLY.COM



* Any of these violations will lead to your account being suspended for 24 hours or more at the discretion of an Administrator the first time. Any future violations will lead to a permanent suspension of your membership. By becoming a member you agree to adhere to these guidelines. These guidelines are subject to change without notice and a current version is always available in each forum. Furthermore, we reserve the right to "ban" your account for any reason at anytime.
