Forum Rules

Post by David_Bricker » Fri Nov 07, 2008 8:41 am

The basic ground rules for discussions on PanamintValley.com Forums are simple:

* Be polite, use common sense, and don't post any message that even hints at advertising. We don't intend to censor messages based on the opinions expressed within those posts, but we will enforce the policies outlined here.
* We strongly discourage political and religious posts, topics and discussions. This is a desert board; there are lots of forums on the internet for political and religious conversation; this isn't one of them. While there are political aspects to desert topics, such as land use, strictly political discussion is not appropriate for this forum.
* We reserve the right to remove, modify or move posts at our discretion and without explanation. If you have any questions, please notify one of the Administrators.
* We enforce a very strict policy regarding solicitation of our membership by Forum participants except in those Forum sections where it is expressly permitted.
* Participants may not use the Forum for commercial gain.
* Participants may not use the Forum to direct others to any pages which they have a commercial interest in, these include commission or referral hyperlinks, unless thread starter or poster has made direct request.
* Participants may not post any commission, referral or affiliate links anywhere on the forum.
* Participants may only discuss details about their company and/or product offerings when the thread starter or poster has made direct reference to their company and stated something untrue or misleading or something which clearly needs clarifying, the response must be in direct reference to the point discussed only and contain no added promotional information and/or fluff. It is advisable when in the above scenario to contact us first.
* We take the "be polite" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate ANY rudeness. Any member who is intentionally unpleasant or disruptive will receive one warning, and if the member offends again the member will be banned for a period of time at the Admin's discretion without warning.
* If you have complaints about violation of forum rules, contact moderators/administrators via PM/email.

In light of our policy of encouraging candid, open exchanges of views and the rapid distribution of information originating from many sources, PanamintValley.com cannot determine the accuracy of information that may be uploaded to the Forum.

Opinions, advice and all other information expressed by participants in discussions are those of the author. You rely on such information at your own risk. Participants are urged to seek professional advice for specific, individual situations and not rely solely on advice or opinions given in the discussions.

We encourage participation in this forum, not just "lurking". This forum's strength is the collective knowledge of those who read the forum, and we want you to share that knowledge with others. Because of this, any forum member who is inactive, and does not participate for some time may be removed from forum participation.

All of the above applies to forum posting, private messages and article comments.

Everyone at the Panamint Valley forums would like to thank you for joining!! We look forward to your posts!!

Thanks, the Admins and Moderators
