Please read the following rules as they affect your access to the site. The rules have been put in place to ensure that yours, as well as others experience on newTriton.net is an enjoyable and safe one.
The rules apply to all methods of communication between community members eg: forums, private messages, e-mail etc.
As a member of the site you agree to abide by all the terms and conditions set out by the following rules.
If you do not agree with any of the conditions below, please request your account to be cancelled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Advertising. No commercial advertising or advertising of business is permitted. Links or phone numbers are strictly forbidden. There is a Commercial Advertising section on the forum so if anyone feels such a need to promote a specific business then it is best to contact the site owner by emailing email@example.com about advertising space. There must be NO direct conflict to the sponsors that the site has already.
If you have a problem with a particular company DO NOT post it up on the forum at all. This is easily construed as slander and bears legal issues. There are always two sides to every story and without the other persons view it is not fair to post your issues.
You may link to other websites in posts, if it is relevant to the topic at hand. Not purely for the purpose of promoting a business or product. If you think you need to tell people about a particular site, do so via PM. If in doubt these posts will be directed to the moderating team.
2. No Spam. Spamming can be defined as either posting multiple times about the same thing or starting multiple topics about the same thing. Spamming is also defined as constantly posting off-topic as well as providing links that have nothing to do with the forum or thread at hand. Spam will be deleted without warning and/or notification.
3. No Abuse or Foul Language. While we encourage lively debates and discussions, we will not tolerate personal attacks of any kind on the open forum. Any person attacking another forum member will receive a warning or immediate ban (depending on the severity) and have their offensive posts removed. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. Insults, offensive language or anything offensive will be deleted without warning and/or notification if considered unacceptable by a Moderator. Content that is insulting to anyone based on gender, lifestyle, religion, ethnic group, race etc. is unacceptable and will be deleted without warning and/or notification. newTriton.net will not tolerate posts which defame individuals, other on line forums, businesses or car companies. No inter-site bantering between the various forums 4WD Network host, eg: My Triton is better than your Hilux, etc. Every member has the right to post about problems but this must be done in a factual manner.
4. Advice for Newbies. Before posting a new thread (for technical advice etc) please do a search to make sure it hasn’t been discussed before. This will not only save embarrassment but it also saves space.
5. No flame wars. There is no place for that on these message boards. Topics that are designed to start a flame war (defined as an offensive argument that serves no purpose but to make others upset.) will be treated as Spam and deleted without warning and/or notification.
6. Stay on-topic. There will be some leniency on this, and we don't mind if you bring in another comment or two under non-technical areas, but try to stay focused. If you think it's a good enough topic, start a new thread about it. This also prevents losing a good idea amongst a thread about another topic. Threads that wander off-topic will be closed and/or trimmed or moved to the appropriate forum. Off topic threads and posts may be done in Off Topic and Platinum Subscriber sub-forums. Posts in those sections will be allowed to run their course without interference unless deemed necessary, all other sections of the site will be monitored more closely if threads are tending to stray off topic they will be closed, trimmed or deleted with or without notice to the offending post author.
Please do not make any "Junk" posts within the Technical areas of the forum. Stay on topic at all times within the Technical areas and there will be no problems.
7. Trolling. Over the time that the forum has been online we have had a number of people who come in here just to get attention – this will no longer be tolerated.
Posting “who’s cute”, “who I like best” or “who likes me” type threads are best to be placed on other ‘Pro Interest type’ forums as it will result in you getting a week’s holiday from the forum.
8. No illegal topics. Illegal software, copyright material, or items that may offend others are not welcome and will be removed without warning and/or notification. Posters of such material will be dealt with on a case by case basis; this may include warnings and/or being removed permanently from the site.
9. No Impersonating. Attempting to pose as a newTriton.net admin or moderator, an employee of any affiliates or any other registered user will not be tolerated and will result in the deletion of that user name. This also applies to variations of registered names. Members are not permitted to have more than one user account. Any members found to have multiple accounts will have the extra account(s) deleted and a warning placed on the remaining account.
10. Avatars. Avatars must not contain nudity or profanity. Avatars deemed offensive will be removed. If complaints are received regarding Avatars from forum users and deemed inappropriate or offensive they will be removed without warning and/or notification. If the avatar reappears, you may be banned. This includes posting pictures of women's cleavage. If necessary this should be handled by REPORTING the post with the avatar attached.
11. Signatures. They should not have any offending images. Anything which is considered offensive will be removed immediately from the site without warning and/or notification. The site should be able to be viewed in front of children. Please keep it this way. Signatures should not contain advertising or links to non-sponsor related products and/or services. Doing so will have your signature removed or changed without warning and/or notification.
