Mustang-Forums.com Forum Rules
Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling:
Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated on the boards. Treat others on these message boards as you would expect them to treat you. Posting topics specifically designed to provoke a negative response from someone (aka trolling) is also asked to be avoided.
Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages to gain a higher post count, or just to annoy others is HIGHLY frowned upon! Commercial spamming and advertising are just as unwelcome, Commercial offers are only allowed in the Classifieds forum by Mustang-Forums.com sponsors only.
There is no major punishment for off-topic posters. But lets be honest, it drives us all mad!! If you have something to say but it really has nothing to do with the current thread you are in, please open a new thread for it.
Circumventing a Locked Thread
If one of your threads is locked, please do not start another thread dedicated to why was your thread locked. If you have a problem with your thread being locked, please send me a private message describing the problem.
Please remember that this board is a PUBLIC forum. There are 12 year olds here just as there are 50 year olds. Nudity and porn is prohibited for obvious reasons. Pictures with women posing in/on/around Mustang(s) may be acceptable, as long as they are clean, show no nudity, and not too provocative. These threads must be labeled with a *WW* (standing for Work Warning) in order to protect those surfing the site at work and/or those that may be offended by such pics. The Mustang-Forums.com Moderation Team reserves the right to delete pics/threads that contain pics/material that does not fit within these guidelines. So if in doubt, you can always pm/email a Moderator/Admin the pics in question and wait for a response of approval before posting them.
Signatures, Avatars, and Custom Titles:
No advertising for businesses in your signature/avatar unless you are a paid sponsor of Mustang-Forums.com.
No advertising, flames, cuss words, slurs, etc. allowed in Custom Title
A moderator will quickly delete your signature/avatar/custom title if you break this rule.
Businesses Advertising on Mustang-Forums.com:
If you are a business and not a paying sponsor of Mustang-Forums.com you are not allowed to sell any type of merchandise on Mustang-Forums.com. This means no bulk products. If you have one part that you would like to sell as an individual, go right ahead, just don't advertise it as coming from your business.
If you are interested in Sponsoring Mustang-Forums.com either drop me a Private Message or an E-Mail at email@example.com
Posts regarding Street Racing:
No Street Racing Stories are to be posted in the Racing Forums. This forums are only for Legal racing(Drag/Autocross). Anyone that posts street racing stories in these forums will see their thread deleted and a warning be issued.
If you would like to share your kill story post it in The Lounge.
Since we can't have a rule to cover everything, this is the rule to, well, cover everything. These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. These issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense.
Warnings and Banning:
We have a 3 strikes your out policy. We want to keep things clean and fun on the boards. We have put into effect a warning system in which you get 3 warnings and you recieve a 1 month "Username" ban from our site. If you sign up as a new user before your 1 month is up you will recieve a 6 month "Ip Address" ban. A PM from a Moderator/Administrator will be sent to you alerting you of your warning status. If you feel that you have been wrongly warned/banned please contact a Administrator.
If you come across a post that abuses any of the above rules please use the report post button in Postbit to alert the forum moderators(see Here). Please use this only as needed. Members that violate this feature will be receive a warning and ban if abuse is continued.
