ISA Forum rules
« on: March 02, 2015, 05:16:36 pm »
Please take some time to read through and abide by the ISA forum rules, which are based on the well proven T&Cs from the BARCS forum. We trust members to use their common sense, but these basic rules have been authored to help guide users as they explore and use the forum. Remember this rule of thumb - if you wouldn't say it to someone's face in a public place, please don't post it on this forum!  :)

Forum Rules:

Accounts:
  • Only one account per person is permitted.
  • When registering members must provide the valid email address they provided on their ISA membership form. Disposable email addresses are not permitted. We will not activate any account that does not meet this rule.
  • ISA members who have not renewed by 1st March each year will have their forum account suspended until such time that they renew their membership

General use:
  • Keep all posts on-topic.
  • All posts must be in English, any posts not in English will be removed.
  • Do not pretend to be/represent somebody else. Your account will be deleted if found to be in breach of this rule.
  • Do not discuss illegal activities. Our server is hosted in the UK and so is subject to UK law. Please do not expose us to any unnecessary legal liability.
  • Check that your question has not been answered anywhere else on the site. Use the search feature.
  • Post your comment/question to the most appropriate place. Non-modelling topics posted under “General ISA chat” or “For sale / Wanted” will be moved to “Life, the universe and everything”. Do not cross-post the same question to multiple places.
  • Use your own words. If you wish to use the words of somebody else, quote them, citing the source.
  • Choose an appropriate subject line. Try to summarise the topic briefly in the subject, and elaborate in the message itself. Repeat the subject in the body if it will make things clearer.
  • Do not use ALL CAPS and do not add false information just to get attention.
  • No useless posts. This includes thread bumping, useless one liners, flame wars (definition), trolling (definition) and spamming (definition).
  • Thank those who help you. Acknowledgment of a helpful suggestion not only placates those who helped you, it may also help others with a similar problem. All those who have been helped on this forum are invited to help other users by responding to their questions when they know the answer and/or to consider adding useful information.
  • Do not link to any site that contains adult content, sexually oriented material or might otherwise be considered offensive. Any post containing an inappropriate link will be deleted and the poster will receive a warning.
  • Do not propose/link to any site that contains wares/copyrighted software/materials that can be downloaded illegally.
  • No affiliate links are to be posted anywhere on our forum.
  • Any discussion or video about illegal FPV flying should not be posted and will be removed.

At all times:
  • Keep all commentary civil, and be courteous at all times. Constructive criticism is welcome, but insults directed towards other users or the site admins will not be tolerated. Coarse/insulting language will not be tolerated.
  • No commercial advertising is permitted.
  • When recommending product or items to help a user solve their issue, you must disclose any affiliations you may have with the company or group that authors that particular product. This includes, but is not limited to: any paid or non-paid relationships past or present, receiving any promotional products or services, or any other similar information.
  • Any posts deemed to be self promotion, advertising, or spam can and will be removed. No Spam - No Advertising e.g. Posting and making excessive, inappropriate and unnecessary references to your products and websites is self promotion.
  • This is not the place to settle a commercial disagreement for custom development or to be a 'wall of shame'. Any posts deemed to be of this nature will be removed. Settle your disputes in private please, and away from this forum.
  • These forums are centered on RC soaring and related activities. They are not a place to promote ideological, political or religious matters. All such discussions will be deleted/closed.
  • If you feel a post violates any of these rules, or you need to bring it to the attention of a moderator (move threads/close/split), please use the ‘Report to Moderator’ link at the end of each post and they will review the post and take action if appropriate.

For Sale/Wanted Forum:
  • The items you are selling must be owned by you and ready for sale.
  • No auction style adds. You must state a price for your item.
  • Attach a picture or two - it's much more likely to sell!
  • Please edit your initial post and add "SOLD" to the subject line once it's gone, then lock the thread.

Failure to abide by these rules may result in an editing, negative moderation or deletion of your post:
  • 1st offences will receive a warning and we may delete any content that infringed the rules.
  • 2nd offences will receive a ban for 1 week and we may delete any content that infringed the rules.
  • 3rd offences will receive a ban for 1 month and we may delete any content that infringed the rules.
  • 4th offences will receive a permanent ban and we may delete any content that infringed the rules.
