View Full Version : Don't Do It! (Read this before posting in these forums)

The SCMC bulletin board is here for four main reasons and they are:

1) Camaradarie
2) Education
3) Club Promotion
4) Member benefits

If your posts do not have something to contribute that use at least one of these four reasons, your posts will either be edited or deleted and you will be sent an e-mail from a moderator/administrator to correct your behavior.

Our board is also not a means for solicitation by non club members or non approved vendors. Approved vendors can be found on our website or in our newsletter. People who frequent the bulletin board are allowed to post for sale items but must follow the for sale etiquette which may be found in that forum.

What happens if you do not follow the above mentioned rules?

If your posts do not meet the criteria above then you will receive a warning about your posts.

Rule 1.

If your posts are deliberately hateful and flaming then you will be banned from the board for 7 days. If your behavior does not change after 7 days then you will be banned for 6 months. If after 6 months, your posts are still using the same demeaner then you will be banned permanently!

Rule 2.

If you have been banned from the board then you will need to issue an apology to the party that you offended in order to get back on the board. This can be through e-mail or through the forums with the offending party notifying the moderator/administrator that such action has taken place.

Rule 3.

Under no circumstance is an SCMC "approved" vendor to be ridiculed, flamed, or other wise treated in a disrespectful manner. The club works hard to get these vendors to come on board with us and if you have a problem with one then it should be handled in a discrete professional manner through our Marketing manager and official channels.

Rule 4.

No poster is allowed to have a banner or signature promoting any business even if it is an approved vendor. Banners are for your personal vehicle only. No avatar will be allowed to promote any vendor, avatars are for your personal vehicle photo or other photo that meets a "rated G" guideline. Approved SCMC vendors are permitted to promote their business through both avatars and signatures.

Rule 5.

SCMC reserves the right to change, modify, or add to these rules as we see fit. If you have any questions concerning the definition of any of these premises, please e-mail a moderator or administrator with your concerns.

Very well said Tony. Of late I've noticed that we have had some folks not posting in the SPIRIT of the SCMC! :thumbsup:
