CTSUBIE RULES & CONDUCT
CTSUBIE is a privately owned forum, funded with private funds. As a privately owned and financed forum we are not subject to "Freedom of Speech" legislation. With that said, we will allow "free speech" insofar as that free speech does not contravene our forum rules. The rules of the forum are in place to protect the forum and the environment where all our members interact. Administrators and Moderators of CTSUBIE reserve the right to adjudicate, and take ANY actions we deem appropriate, in any circumstances.
This is a privately owned forum which we enforce the "If You Don't Have Anything Nice To Say Then Don't Say It All" policy. PLEASE NOTE that using "alternative" spelling for swear words or using undesirable words, phrases, user names, locations, place names or in fact anything visible in a user profile, is strictly forbidden and will result in action being taken by Staff.
RUDE BEHAVIOR,THREATS, OR HARASSMENT
While debate and discussion is acceptable; personal attacks, rudeness to, or posts insulting other users is not tolerated. Responding to personal attacks with further abuse is inflammatory and unnecessary and will also result in disciplinary action against you, in addition to any action against the perpetrators of such attacks.
This includes threats of bodily harm or other violent statements as well as any type of personal harassment from a user, whether by email, in PM, on the forum or, by means of any other messaging methods utilized by CTSUBIE or its members.
If you are found causing trouble on the forums or generally harassing users, you will be considered a troll.
Trolling by CTSUBIE's definition could be any of, but is not restricted to the following:
* Flooding the board with comments arising from a single point of view in every reply.
* Intentionally posting something that contravenes our forum rules.
* Deliberately posting inflammatory comments in order to start a "flame war" or to cause difficulty for the moderators.
* Posting continuous snide or personal comments about other users.
* Posting continuous or unwarranted criticism of Mods and their moderating decisions.
* Behavior which is continually disruptive to the general membership of the forum.
Flaming is expressly forbidden in CTSUBIE. It serves no other purpose but to show disrespect to other users and to the forum environment. If you don't agree with what someone has posted, that is your right - that is what a discussion forum is all about. DO NOT, however, turn the thread into your personal soapbox and let situations spiral into a "bar room brawl". Always treat people with the same level of respect which you yourself would expect in return.
It is forbidden to advertise products, services, or web sites in order to derive personal benefit, either directly or indirectly. You may also NOT place affiliate,live or dead links for purposes of advertising, in any post including member names and avatars. All CTSUBIE Vendors who have purchased a vendor plan on CTSUBIE are protected by the staff from outside competition and event planning.
You may not post replies containing commentary, links to, or images of pornography, race-hate or other illegal material on the Internet, in any forum of CTSUBIE.
MULTIPLE USER IDENTITIES
You may not register an account for purposes of deceptive behavior or register more than one account in this forum. If you are found doing so, it will be assumed that you have done so for less than savory reasons. There is no need to have more than one account and should you have problems logging in, send a PM, as a guest, to an Administrator, by clicking on the user name, with details of your problem.
All CTSUBIE Member Avatars Must Be Subaru Related, No Exceptions. All Non Subaru Related Avatar's will be removed without notice.
CTSUBIE STAFF RESPECT
All CTSUBIE Members Must Respect The Decisions implemented by The CTSUBIE Staff Members. If you have a post/ thread moderated- it is because your actions conflict with forum rules, We ask that all issues be resolved respectively through PM's with an Administrator. If any matters are discussed on the forum by either creating a thread or post, then that member(s) will receive automatic infraction or ban.
CTSUBIE is glad to see many new Vendors and Dealers joining up and extending many new services, events and offers to our members. So with respect to our vendors; we will not permit outside vendors to post conversations which include but are not limited to: sales, services, events or classifieds. These forms of content will be removed without discussion. Any and all transactions which are not met to the satisfaction of our members as paying customers to an advertisement on CTSUBIE must be directly sent to the attention of that specific Vendor/Dealer. Bashing or out right venting of any situation will not be tolerated.
All Vendors/Dealers must provide a "Contact Us" link in all promotions and advertisement threads for CTSUBIE members to communicate any transactions payments, discounts codes, problems etc. As these topics will be the sole responsibilities of the specific vendor/dealer.
