With the move over to the new forum package I think we need to lay out the rules since everyone is starting over. I'll try to find a permanent home for these but for now, here they are.

1.0 Username/Screen

Rule #1.1 - If someone had a user/screen name on the old forums then they can have it here. We will be leaving the old forum in place for quite awhile so that we can determine this if we need to.

Rule #1.2 - Absolutley no off color user/screen names. We demand a kid friendly site.

Rule #1.3 - Do not create an alias! If you do, don't get caught!

2.0 Signatures

Rule #2.1 - No links at all unless you are a sponsor of the site. Period. That makes it simple and easy to enforce. I don't care if it is a non-profit or your personal web site. There is a web site field in the profile, use that.

Rule #2.2 - No mention of a business in your signature unless you are a sponsor of the site.

3.0 Posting

Rule #3.1 - Better be nice! If you can't be nice, at least be polite while you are being a jerk. Anyone that is regularly abusive, rude, or uses bad language will be banned. Period.

Rule #3.2 - Do not SPAM! What is SPAM? If you are:

- promoting a web site that has sponsors or that is looking for sponsors
- promoting the web site of a business
- promoting a business
- trying to drum up business
- trying to sell stuff in violation of the "Classified Rules" (Check the top of Classifieds)
- Etc

Then is is SPAM. Basically, SPAM is like porn in that it depends on who is looking at it or reading it. If an admin or moderator thinks that a post is SPAM then they will delete it and send a PM. Repeated or blatant violations will be dealt with.

Rule #3.3 - Do not post something that is an invitation for SPAM.

Rule #3.4 - No vulgar language. You can get your point across without using it. If you are caught, you will be warned one time. If you do it again after the warning you will be suspended or banned from the site.

Rule #3.5 - What NOT to post.

- Phone numbers
- Email addresses
- Web site addresses for any kind of business or person that competes with one of our sponsors (just look at the list at the top, should be easy enough to figure out).
