    Post Forum Rules v1.0

    The Forum Rules have never been published AFAIK, so Tom and I thought it best to update them and release them to the public.

    New members will recieve them in their welcome PM.

    ScottishScoobies.net (SS.net) is privately owned and operated. The rules are intended to keep the focus on the Subaru car hobby and keep the forum friendly and civil.

    Unlike many other forums, we are actually serious about the rules here; they will serve us well in keeping SS.net one of the friendliest forums on the internet.

    PLEASE READ AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING COMPLETELY BEFORE CONTINUING:

    1. Do not use this forum for posting SPAM or for Trolling ( SEE HERE ) to direct members to some other forum or website. If you have a web site, you can post it in our links page and you can put a car-related URL in your signature, but we have almost zero tolerance for new members who join just to post links to other web sites or simply use the For Sale Section.

    2. Personal attacks will not be tolerated! If you feel a member is out of line, contact us with the specifics and give us a chance to deal with it. You have the ability to IGNORE any user by viewing their profile and clicking the "Add to ignored list" link. (See the FAQ page for more info on ignoring users).

    3. NEW TRADERS NOTE: Non-Subscribed Traders are not permitted to solicit business here, either overtly or covertly (e.g., using Private Messages). This forum is expensive and extremely time-consuming to maintain. Limiting solicitations to Subscribing Traders is only fair to us and the Traders who pay to advertise here. Please contact us if you are interested in advertising/trading on SS.net

    4. The Classifieds Section is out of bounds to all new members, this is for a number of reasons:

    a. It protects the forum from Hit and Run Sellers.
    b. Its the Paid members that pay for the site. They pay to support the Club and Forum so that non paying members can use it for free. Free members although welcome are not able to sell.

    40+ Posts allows access to the Classifieds section, this allows you to buy
    For Sale Subscription (6 - Per Year) Allows any subscribing person to post For Sale adds in the classifieds section (this also lifts the requirement for 40 posts)
    Club Members Subscription (15 - Per Year) Allows any subscribing person to post For Sale adds in the classifieds section (this also lifts the requirement for 40 posts) and gain access to the club members section along with its other benefits.

    Subscriptions are re-occurring and no refunds will be give for full or part subscriptions.

    5. Do not bring up politics, religion or otherwise potentially controversial topics here. Posts that violate this rule may be deleted without discussion. While we respect everyone's right to their opinions, it has been an observation on previous forums that keeping the discussions about our cars, or about "light" non-controversial topics, helps ensure everyone gets along.

    6. Keep posts clean and in good taste! it is an adult related site however, If in doubt, don't post it.

    7. No Trader Bashing! If you have a problem with a Trader (whether subscribing or linked elsewhere), take it up with the trader. Don't use this forum for registering complaints about any vendor or business. However, we do have iTrader installed which is a Review forum where you can post to review and rate any deal done on the forum. All posts in that forum are fully moderated.

    8. You understand and agree that it is impossible for us to review all messages or confirm the validity of information posted. While we try our best to monitor the activity here on SS.net, we cannot be responsible for any messages posted.

    9. You understand and agree that we do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the SS.net Forum or any entity associated with this SS.net

    10. You agree that, if you feel that a post is objectionable, you will not act as moderator, but will contact us. We can remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame; but you also agree that we will ultimately determine whether removal is necessary.

    11. You agree not to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented (within reason ), threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ALL IP ADDRESSES ARE LOGGED, AS IS ALL FORUM ACTIVITY.

    12.You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this forum, or you have specific permission from the copyright owner to do so.

    IMPORTANT: While we seldom delete posts or threads (We may edit them in the interest of the forum), we at SS.net still reserve the right to delete any message or restrict access to the forum for any or no reason whatsoever, you will be notified by PM for deletion and a note left in your post if edited. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this forum, SS.net, its owner, as well as the makers of the bulletin board software, and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

    We at SS.net do not normally provide personal information, however, we also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

    Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and SPAM are inappropriate on this forum and WILL BE DELETED unless specifically authorized before hand by an Administrator or Moderator of this forum.

    Finaly, it all seems like a bunch of legal jargon but this is your forum, the rules are here to protect you, not to hinder you, enjoy yourself and keep the community safe and strong.
