SHOForum.com Message Board Rules
Registration to this forum is FREE! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. Please take a moment to read the rules of the board.
***ATTENTION NEW MEMBERS***
Important Information, FINISH READING IT ALL!
BE NICE! - Pretty self explanatory stuff.
Regarding feelings – Those who allow themselves to become hurt, angered, upset, slighted, offended, righteous, indignant, affronted, or otherwise insulted are simply in the wrong place. This is a virtual world, and part of the fun in being here is in leaving behind the drudgery of our daily dramas and fragile feelings. Giving an anonymous person the power to actually hurt your feelings in cyber space is a decision, not a reaction. When trolls appear, or general rudeness occurs, let it play out. All idiots are armed with enough rope to hang themselves. All responses are saved forever. Be nice. Be in on the joke. Let the morons define themselves.
Flames - Flaming topics/posts will be moderated at the discretion of the staff. If the person proves himself as a non-productive member, they will be dealt with accordingly.
SHOforum.com employs a swear filter. Please use your best judgment when posting.
Adult Content - It is not acceptable anywhere. Use your best judgment as to what is and is not adult content. Many people who have families frequent this site and their children are likely reading the forum with them. Vulgar displays of any sort will be deleted.
Personal Attacks - They will not be tolerated anywhere on the board. Topics and/or posts containing personal attacks will be closed, edited or deleted at the discretion of the SHOForum.com staff. If any member continues to disrupt the message board this way appropriate actions will be taken.
Closed Topics - If one of your topics is closed or deleted, please do not start another thread dedicated to why was your post locked. If you have a problem with your post being closed or deleted, please contact the board Administrator via private message describing the problem. Administration is under no obligation to restore your topic. It should also be noted that Moderators cannot restore topics, this action is limited entirely to the Administration.
"Free" Posts - It is unproductive and does nothing but clutter the board. Threads dedicated to free posting will be closed and/or deleted at the discretion of the Moderators and/or Administration.
Attn: Threads - Please post these types of threads in the "Contacting Forum Members" section. If you just want one person to see your thread then a PM or e-mail should be used as all members can access the Attn: thread.
Avatars and Signature Images – Please keep them clean and friendly. Avatars and Signature images are a privilege that the Admins of SHOForum.com have decided to extend to all members. Members with offensive avatars may be notified to change it; if there is no change, said member will be dealt with accordingly. This includes, but is not limited to loosing Avatar privileges or banishment form the forum. In some cases avatar or signature images may be removed without notifying a member. Avatar and signature images should be sized according to the following:
Avatars - Avatar images should be no larger than 70 x 70 pixels in size. Animated avatars are allowed, but must be within the size limits set forth. Animations that are found to be too large will be removed.
Signature images - Signature images should be no larger than 300 pixels x 300 pixels or 600 pixels wide x 130 pixels tall and limited to 25-30 kb in file size regardless of physical dimensions. No animated signature images are allowed. Any signature image may be removed without prior contact with the member. Please respect the above size limits, some members on this board may not enjoy the benefits of cable or DSL internet connections.
Please remember that Avatar and Signature images are a privilege that the Admins of SHOForum.com have decided to extend to all members, they are not a right.
No Crude Posts - Even if you find these types of posts funny, they are offensive to many people. Please use your best judgement in what is appropriate. There is no room on this forum for posts regarding bodily functions, sexual experiences, politics or in depth religious topics. If you have a network of friends here, please feel free to use the private messaging system for that kind of material as it should not be posted publicly or use AOL or Yahoo Instant messengers as these types of conversations would be better discussed there.
Political or Religious Posts - There are many political and religious debate forums, if you want to discuss political or religious issues feel free to search them out and use their services for your political or religious debates.
Post in the Correct Forum - Many posts belong in other forums. Please do your best to post in the appropriate forum. Posts that are in the incorrect forum will be moved or deleted at the staff’s discretion. Mistakes do happen, if you've found you posted in the wrong section please contact a staff member so it can be moved to the appropriate forum.
Advertising – Advertising is NOT allowed unless you have donated to have a classifieds ad taken out. Please do not advertise anything for sale in your signature or user title unless you have taken out a classifieds ad. Advertising in your signature without an ad in one of the classified sections not allowed and will not be tolerated. If you have something for sale in your signature without a classifieds ad it will be removed without prior contact with you. Once removed, any member who again replaces the ad will be dealt with accordingly.
Illegal Activity/Street Racing – SHOforum.com does in no way condone any illegal activity; this includes street racing. Street racing is illegal and dangerous.
Trolling - We have no room for trolls here. Those who are here just to cause trouble will be dealt with immediately.
Always remember that other message boards appreciate trolls about as much as we do. Please do not "troll" other boards and cause trouble then come to SHOforum.com and post about it. On the same note, do not troll and act as if you represent SHOforum.com. It is tedious work for the Moderators and Administrators to have to go to other message boards and apologize for the actions of some of our members.
Although the administrators and moderators of SHOForum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of SHOForum, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.
By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
The owners of SHOForum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason without contact.
