Team Adam's Posted December 6, 2010 Share Posted December 6, 2010 With growth comes more traffic and with more traffic comes the need now, more than ever, to maintain our policies and procedures here. AdamsForums from its inception has focused on keeping a family friendly and respectful atmosphere. A place where you're free to have fun discuss detailing, cars, or anything baring it doesn't include or feature material that is of a potentially offensive or inflammatory in nature. How do you know whats OK to post? Simple - if you were sitting down to dinner with Adam, his lovely wife, and their 2 young kids would what you're about to post be considered appropriate conversation? If not its best not posted to the forum. We're not asking you to leave your personality at the door, simply that you refrain from posting anything that includes excessive cursing, violence, gore, sex, nudity, or anything of an obscene, illegal, or offensive nature. As a reminder: KEEP YOUR POSTS CLEAN The main focus of AdamsForums.comis to be a place where car care enthusiasts can come to discuss their passion thus explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics, X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or other graphic files are NOT appropriate. This includes picture and graphic files in signatures or avatars as well as language featured in videos. Posts in all forums that contain any of these will not be tolerated and will be moved or deleted without notice! Repeated or intentional posting of these types of material will be subject to immediate ban at the discretion of the moderating team. If you are ever in doubt as to whether the post you are about to make could violate this rule its probably best you don't post it or contact a moderator privately to ask first. Additionally, posts about religion, politics, and/or controversial issues are strongly discouraged. Topics of an inflammatory nature can lead to bigger problems and we ask that you keep your political and religious views out of the forum. The forum is comprised of people from varied social, economic, religious, and political backgrounds lets celebrate these differences by leaving them out of discussions and ensuring no one is offended. The forum staff also encourages members to help enforce the rules and keep this the best place on the web to discuss your passion for detailing. If a clear violation of any of our forum policies is posted please utilize the "report a post" button located directly to the left of each response, indicated with this symbol: Due to a sudden increase in posts of this nature and a rise in trolling by some members with an agenda to cause problems here in our quiet little forum the moderation staff has had to spend a larger than normal amount of their time cleaning up. To this point there was no documented warnings and no clear way to discourage violations. As such the moderation staff has decided to implement a policy which will grant a limited number of warnings before suspension of posting privileges. For each offending post an infraction will be issued - infractions do not expire. Infraction 1: Warning Infraction 2: Warning Infraction 3: Warning with 3 day posting suspension Infraction 4: 1 month posting suspension Infraction 5: Permanent suspension Based on the severity of infractions the moderation team may, at their discretion issue multiple infractions for one offense. These instances will be discussed by the team and be generally reserved for blatant attempts to violate the rules, incite problems, or posts clearly intended to disrupt or undermine the forums activities. We thank you for your understanding and want you to know that we only have recently decided to enact this system in response to the increased need for moderation and supervision on the forums. By keeping a fair, clear, and documented system everyone will be on the same page in addition to serving as motivation to put more thought into posting something offensive or disrespectful before just clicking the submit button. If you have any questions or concerns about the new infraction policy please feel free to contact myself or any member of the moderation team.
