|Subject: PLEASE READ THE RULES!!! 9/4/2009, 12:53 pm
GulfCoastTundras.com is an online community of Toyota Tundra enthusiasts. We are a forum that does not condone, allow or tolerate user bashing/flaming. We welcome your opinions and feedback. However, we ask that you do not force your opinion on others or insult them if their opinion differs. Treat everyone here with respect. We promote a friendly community sharing the common interest of the Tundra. We have our Tundra Gatherings or "Meets" which encourage members to bring their family members.
So, without dragging this out longer than necessary, here's our basic rules.
We really pride ourselves on being a "No bashing, no flaming" forum and we take it very seriously. We do not tolerate rudeness in the public forums. If you have something rude to say - do it in a PM. Any member who is intentionally disrupting the public forums or violating this rule will be subject to punishment (including posting probation or banning).
No political, religious or racial discussions.
We try to promote a community atmosphere here at GCT and allowing such volatile topics simply pits people against one another. Therefore we do not allow threads that are specifically about religion, politics or race. If you wish to discuss these topics, please find a forum that is more open to these subjects. Limited references to religion and politics are allowed (for instance,"my prayers are with you" or "could you please pray for my father..."). These are simply religious references and are not intended to spark a religious debate... so don't.
No typing around the word filter.
You may not post words or URLs that are censored by the website. This includes adding spaces, dots, or substituting any other characters that are intended to defeat the censors in place by the forum.
Keep it clean.
Members need to remember that this forum is aimed at a general audience and that our demographic spans from 15-60 years of age. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc will not be tolerated outside of the NSFW section. No use of explicit, obscene or otherwise vulgar language or images and/or messages, including racist remarks are allowed.
You may not advertise any business or product (including within signatures) without prior written permission from Beezwax or Shawn. If you are interested in promoting products via GCT, please PM the owners for more information.
No posting for banned members.
You may not post on behalf of any member that has been banned or put on probation from GCT. This includes forums, private messages, signatures, email features, photos, videos, or any material that is on behalf of the banned user.
No multiple usernames.
One user account per user. If you have lost your password or account information, please email email@example.com for assistance.
Keep posts on topic.
No irrelevant or off-topic posts will be allowed. Posts which are not relevant to the thread or forum topic may be removed at the discretion of GCT staff without prior notice. No derailing (topic changing/thread jacking) of threads because you do not agree with their content. If you don't like what you read, don't post anything. Don't take it off topic simply because you don't like it.
Respect the GCT Staff
Do not disrespect GCT staff members. Be respectful in both public forums and private communications. Staff members are volunteers that donate many, many hours of their own personal time to help manage the forums and offer everyone here a great place to waste time and learn. Violations of this rule will not be tolerated and may result in posting probation or a permanent ban.
The GCT's staff reserve the right to add, modify, or remove any of these rules or guidelines at any time, for any reason without notice. Rules changes and additions apply to all past, current and future posts and applicable content.
