  1. #1

    Default Site Rules

    Fz1-Forum.Com Mission Statement:

    It is my goal that FZ1-Forum.Com continues to stand out as a unique and friendly family orientated site for FZ1 enthusiasts. It is a site that is friendly, clean and unique. That policy is reflected in the site content.

    Forum Rules:

    Respect other members
    Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. You have the right to disagree with that opinion. You do not have the right to be rude, vulgar, or disrespectful in expressing your opposition. Flaming will not be tolerated!

    No harassment
    Absolutely no tolerance. If any moderator receives a report of harassment that can be validated through our online logs, the user can face being permanently banned, ISP notified of internet misusage and possible police action based on severity.

    Keep it clean
    Motorcycling should be a family oriented activity. When posting please avoid using excessive vulgarity. Many people read the boards while at work or with young eyes present. Posts with excessive language use will be edited or deleted at the discretion of the mods/admins. Questionable images and threads (bloody, nude, racist ect..) are not acceptable and will be deleted. Dirty jokes or other non "work safe" threads should be marked in the title. Pornography is strictly prohibited!! . Classy "babe" photos can be uploaded to the appropriate image gallery otherwise the post will be deleted.

    Make your comments count
    If you have something to say, make an effort of communicating it intelligently. Don't have anything worth while contributing? Don't say anything. Lest keep the "junk posts to a min"

    No Spamming / Advertising
    Please do not post the same question across multiple forums. The best way to get the answers you are searching for is to post a clear single question in the appropriate forum and be patient, Replies will come. If you are in a hurry for a particular answer try using the search button or reading through replies to similar questions. It may just contain the information that you need. Any members advertising their wares on the site without expressed permission will get banned. Personal items for sale in the classifieds are ok.

    Copy Written Material
    The site will not be a host for copyrighted materials such as books, music, movies ect. Please do not post these materials here or link to them in any thread/post nor give/send/swap them using personal messages (PMs). This is considered a zero tolerance rule resulting in permanent ban.

    Disallowed specific topics
    We're all about freedom of speech, however there are some topics that don't belong here, such as:

    Running from the cops.
    Police bashing/slander.
    Breaking the law.
    Politics
    No satanic threads/links etc.
    Any form or racism PERIOD.

    Avatars
    Avatars must be in good taste. No nudity profanity ect. We wish to keep this site safe for members to view at work and home. If you are asked to change your avatar please do so accordingly.

    Signatures
    Short and sweet please. No links to commercial ventures you have any interest in or advertising unless you actively sponsor the site


    Marketplace/Classified Ads Posting Rules:

    If you have items for sale, trade, or want to buy, please post them in the appropriate category within the classified section. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THOSE WILLING TO PARTAKE IN AN ONLINE PURCHASE FROM ONE OF THE CLASSIFIED SECTIONS DO SO WITH A MEMBER WHO HAS A MINIMUM OF 10 POSTS AND NO LONGER CLASSIFIED AS A "JUNIOR MEMBER". This eliminates the spam, the "bots", and the thief. It protects everyone involved.

    Members who do engage in an online transaction in anyway on this site do so at their own risk and accept all responsibility. This site accepts no responsibility for the completeness of the transaction.By using the classifieds you agree to these rules.

    YOU MUST BE A MEMBER FOR 30 DAYS AND HAVE A MINIMUN OF 10 ACCEPTABLE NOT GARBAGE POSTS OR BE A SUPPORTING MEMBER BEFORE YOU SELL ANYTHING ON THIS FORUM.*

    * Unless the item is an FZ1 or an FZ1 related part and is not being sold buy a vendor. Only non FZ1 Items for sale must meet the 30 days or 10 posts rule..

    This goes for trading items as well. This eliminates the spam, the "bots", and the theif. It protects everyone involved. It is a rule set by the owner, and followed strictly by the Moderators. Please follow it.

    Vendors (or people selling quantities of the same item) must first contact the Administration (members: Admin) to get information on being a paid advertiser before posting items for sale.

    There will be no "auction-style" selling here.
    If you post an item for sale and it says anything like "I will take the highest offer" it will be removed. If you want to run an auction, take it to eBay.

    Posts will be deleted at the discretion of the moderators.
    There is tendency to post negative replies when someone lists an item for sale that others consider "overpriced". Negative comments will not be tolerated. To put it simply-If you dont have anything good to say; keep it to yourself.

    Omission of information is also known as fraud.
    Example: If you are selling a leather suit that has a 9 inch tear in it you need to disclose that information to the buyer. Do not tell the buyer that the suit has "light wear" only.
    If its determined that you defraud a member by failing to disclose crucial facts about your items, your access to this section will be restricted and you may be banned from the forum.

    Use this section at your own risk.
    There are alot of scams out there so take precautions in your business ventures. FZ1-FORUM WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSSES AS A RESULT OF USING THIS SECTION. As a suggestion: sellers should consider using delivery confirmation to avoid conflicts from buyers; saying they never received the products. Buyers, get to know the seller a little before you blindly send cash. If something doesnt seem right; it probably isnt. If something seems to good to be true; it probably is.

    Respect fellow members
    This section is a great place to make an extra buck and occasionally new friends. Please be respectful to your fellow members. Maybe try selling here to a member instead of eBay, maybe save them a buck or two. If you have any questions, problems or concerns feel free to contact Admin.

    PLEASE try to go back and mark SOLD when the item sells.
    This will help eliminate the old threads coming back up, as well as help those looking for specific items.

    Lastly, don't forget the Buyer/Seller Feedback forum. Be sure to express a good or bad experience with your buyer or seller, and let others know what to expect. Also be sure to check there for a member if you are concerned BEFORE you buy.

    TIPS/HELP
    1. Describe your item in the title.
    2. Post a price, easy to find, not just lost in the paragraph of description.
    3. Give ALL details. i.e color, size, year, make, model, etc
    4. POST PICTURES
    5. Put "For Sale" in the title of For Sale items, put "WTB" for items you Want To Buy.
    6. List shipping, pick-up or delivery options for the buyer.
    7. Be sure to add "SOLD" one the items are sold.

    Vendor Rules:

    All vendors participating on the FZ1-Forum.com board must have their bio filled out complete with their real name, a contact phone number and a valid e-mail address.

    They must also have the \"Recent Posts\" feature turned on in their user profile.

    Vendors may start threads pertaining to the sale of their products in the Vendors and Group Purchases forum only. Vendors can only offer items for sale in the form of groupbuys. This is for the sole purpose to benifit the members. Any other offers will need the pre approval of the admin.

    Each vendor will be allowed to give support for their product in the appropriate forum when and only when a member asks for such support.

    Each vendor will be allowed to answer posts pertaining to them in the Vendor / Seller / Dealer Reviews forum in a manner consistent with the board guidelines.

    Vendors will be allowed to answer \"where can I buy\" questions posed by members providing this is done sparingly, in a non-intrusive manner, and the privilige is not abused. Excessive commercial posting, at the discretion of board administration, will be considered spam and the posts and the vendor will be dealt with in a manner fitting the offense.

    Only vendors offering motorcycle related products will be permitted to post on the board.
    A vendor's signature line must conform with the FZ1-Forum.com Signature Line Policy.

    Any variance from these rules will be cause for immediate action as deemed fit by the Admins.

    Moderation Rules:

    1. All spammers get banned instantly and permanently.
    2. Inappropriate or out of hand threads shall be closed with a reason posted for the closure or deleted at the discretion of the Mods/Admins.

    Rules Enforcement:

    1. If you cannot follow the rules set forth, your posts may be deleted, removed, or edited by the Moderators.

    2. If you repeatedly do not follow the rules set forth, you will be banned from this section or from the FZ1-Forum for any length of time from 2 days to permanently, at the discretion of the Moderators.
