FORUM RULES - same as the ski forum
To All SkiNC and SkiSoutheast Forum Members:
HERE ARE THE RULES THAT WILL BE ENFORCED AS OF 08/17/2006: AMMENDED 11/16/2008
SO THAT THIS IS CLEAR - THERE WILL BE NO SECOND CHANCES. ONE STRIKE AND YOU ARE BANNED. PASS THE WORD.
To our moderators - Please advise me of ANYONE breaking these rules.
HERE'S THE RULES:
#1. Flaming, name-calling, or otherwise abusive behavior is inappropriate and is not within the spirit of this community. Attacking a SkiNC member on a personal level is not allowed. If you have a gripe with someone, take it to e-mail.
#2. Flame Wars are counter productive and serve no purpose. Any thread that is a Flame War in progress or any thread that may start (intentional or unintentional) will be either locked-out or deleted.
#3. Racial slurs, ANY profanity, and sexual language will not be tolerated. Please, do not get creative and work around the word filters. Use your brain and try to express yourself without resorting to shortcuts
#4. NO X RATED IMAGES OF ANY KIND (If you are in doubt - don't post it. (Images of classy, half dressed people are allowed - heck we're human!)
#5. Political/Social concern debates and commentary will be strictly limited by the moderators. This is first and foremost a ski community web site. If you feel the need to go beyond this we recommend you find an alternate forum. The moderators will end discussions, delete posts etc in our best judgment.
#6. Snow, Ski, Snowboarding, and Weather Comments and Questions should be posted on the Ski Forum and all other content NOT related to snow sports or weather should be kept to the NON SKI RELATED FORUM.
#7. We encourage all members and visitors to look at the Hall of Fame. You cannot add posts so do not try, just read along and enjoy.
#8. We realize that some members will be less technically inclined than others. However, please do a search of the Forum first before asking basic questions. Odds are your question has been asked before.
#9. You are only allowed to register ONE user name and you are not allowed to register with the intent to falsely impersonate someone. This should be basic knowledge, but apparently some people still need a refresher on this. Doing so will result in being banned for a period of time, or banned indefinitely.
9a. Your registration REQUIRES AN AUTHENTIC EMAIL ADDRESS.
#10. The forum admins and moderators are present to ensure the smooth operation of this community. They do this on a volunteer basis because of their love of snow sports; please respect their contribution. Remember that we are not here to try and assert authority over anyone.
#11. This is a private web community provided for members and guests to discuss the unique sport of South East skiing. When moderated please do not argue about first amendment rights, religious intolerance etc. The only right you truly have is the right to not participate if you do not want to.
#12. You are a member here because you offer something of particular value to the SkiNC and SkiSoutheast community. Please make an effort to keep these forums an enjoyable experience for each and every member, regardless of their age, gender, race, or apparent technical prowess. If the moderators judge that you are detracting from this experience rather than adding to it you may be asked to calm down, leave or in extreme circumstances banned.
#13. NO Flipping of Birds and NO Shocker images.
Cross the line on any of the above rules and guidelines and you WILL be banned from this forum.
Remember folks, this is all for fun, entertainment, and education!
