GunLink Forum Rules
« on: September 21, 2010, 12:00:36 AM »
Following are the rules for participating in the Gun Link Forums.

A. No Discrimination - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, or sexual orientation. Discrimination is grounds for an account lock or ban.

B.  No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. This includes trolling their threads, personally insulting them or their family members, calling names, etc.  If you have problems with another member, please take it elsewhere or contact a forum mod to work it out.  This forum is for civilized adults.

C.  No Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on these forums. A partial censor system is in place as a backup. If you see words in your post being replaced with ****, you have done something wrong.  We are all adults, but we don't need to offend each other.  Baby talk isn't necessary, but PG-13 is what we're aiming for.  This article also includes the posting of pictures on GunLink.  No nudity or obscene pictures or avatars.

D.  No Advertising or Selling - The GunLink general forums are not an online marketplace to buy, sell or trade.  They are  also not an advertising platform, so don't use GL to promote your business.  Members with Industry Member status are exempt from the advertising clause of this article, but not the selling clause.  If you have a business and would like Industry Member status, please visit the Gun Link Site Forum to request it.

E.  No Performance or Promotion of Illegal Activities - Do no break the law using Gun Link.  Do not promote illegal activities on Gun Link.  This is grounds for permanent banning.

F. Copyrighted Materials - When sharing an article or other copyrighted material from another site, newspaper or magazine article, etc., you may only post a small excerpt of the article's written content and you must a link to the original. If the source is not an online source, you must include other attribution to the source.  Copyrighted pictures may not be posted without the express consent of the copyright holder.

G.  No Double Posting or Spamming - Do not post more than once in a row in the same thread. If you need to add something to a post, use the edit function. The only exeption to this rule is if your edit timer for the post has run out, in which case you may double post if you have something important to add.

H.  No Trolling - Do not make useless posts on Gun Link.  Do not make posts with the intention of irritating other users.  Do not harass other members.  BE NICE!

I.  No Topic Bumping - If a topic you created has no replies, you may not post in it again or re-post the topic. You may edit the post if the timer has not run out. If you made the thread because you need help with something, you may post again as long as you include additional information about your problem (the fact that you really really want it fixed does not count as additional information). You must post this in the same thread, and you are not allowed to create more than one thread per topic.  Industry Members are allowed to "bump" their threads promoting special deals once every 24 hours.

J.  No Posting Personal Info - You may not post your last name, or your street address, or that of anyone else on Gun Link. This information then becomes accessible to anyone on the internet.  You should avoid posting your own email address on open boards to avoid spam.  DO NOT post the email address of others.

K.  Admins and Mods Have Final Say - Complaining will not get you far if you disagree with actions taken by board admins or mods.  If you think that an action was unfair, please contact the mod in question as well as another mod who may provide additional opinions and input.  This should be handled in the Gun Link Site Forum area or in personal messages, not in the open boards.

L.  Additional Rules May Be Added Without Notice - The rules outlined here may not be complete.  They may be added to at any time without notice.  You are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.
