Northern Lifters Forum Rules

Recommended Posts

As a member of Northern Lifters, you agree:

1. To respect fellow members.
Please be respectful towards forum members and moderators. If you have a problem with another board member, contact a moderator through the Private Message system and inform them about it. Frank discussion and constructive criticism is allowed, in fact we encourage this. Forum moderators are expected to extend same courtesy to every member of the board. Respect given, respect earned.

2. Not to flame.
Repeated flaming, insulting and attempting to cause fights with other members is not allowed. Any attempts to start flame wars, posting irrelevant, insulting or simply stupid comments that cause aggravation will be closed or deleted. Repeated violations of this rule will result in suspension or even a ban. Flaming is defined as posting or responding to a message in a way clearly intended to incite useless arguments, to launch personal attacks, to insult, or to be hateful towards other members. This includes useless criticism, name-calling, swearing and any other comments meant to incite anger.

3. Not to post in a manner that is vulgar, obscene or profane.
Posting obscene or gross pictures, death, gore, or links to websites with such content will get you a warning or even a ban if offence takes place on multiple occasions. 

4. Not to troll.
Trolling can be defined as the act of purposefully antagonizing other people on the internet by posting controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.

5. Not to register multiple accounts without specific permission from Forum Administrator only.
This means, certain members are allowed to open multiple accounts but only under special conditions that will be outlined in private to each applicant. Unapproved multiple accounts are intended to create nonsenical or attention getting topics with means to disrupt forum, cause harm or aggravation of the members and moderating team. This scenario results in irrevocable ban.

6. Not to post racism, bigotry and sexism.
You are not allowed to post slurs or degrading comments directed towards any group on the basis of race, nationality, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

7. Not to post comments that could be reasonably construed as defamation or libel.
Defamation is the issuance of a false statement about another person, which causes that person to suffer harm. Libel involves the making of defamatory statements in a printed or fixed medium, such as a magazine or newspaper.

8. Not to post commercial spam or to post any promotional links, URLs or addresses to a business or that would lead people to a site unless given specific permission by Forum Administrator only. Not to post URL links to other forums. Not to flood, post commercial or profit generating advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and similar solicitations. Any member who violates this prohibition will be banned from all forum sections of this site. 

9. To report posts that need to be reported.
This means messages that are spam, advertisements, violations of these rules and problematic harassment posts. There is "report post" link at the top of every post.

10. Not to spam other forum members via PM or emails.
To do so will result in an immediate ban. We will also take legal action against spamming site owners. Be warned! THIS INCLUDES CONDUCTING BUSINESS OVER PM.

11. Not to place phone numbers, e-mails, company names or web addresses in signatures unless approved by an administrator. Web addresses to non-commercial sites or blogs may be posted in a member's profile page.

12. Not to post personal messages or emails from other members, whether in full or in part, unless previously permitted by administration.

13. Not to discuss moderation publicly in the open forum; this includes individual actions, and specific or general policies and issues. Moderator decisions are final. The Moderators are unpaid volunteers who are looking out for the best interests of forum members. Making off topic posts in a thread questioning Moderator's decision is an offense. You may send a PM to a moderator to discuss individual actions or email Forum Administrator to discuss moderation policy.

14. To acknowledge that all advice voluntarily given by any member in any of Northern Lifters' forums is provided free of charge as well as liability.

16. Not to modify someone else's post in your quoted reply, either with font or color changes, added emoticons, or altered wording.

17. To make sure you choose right forum or category before starting topic. If not sure, please contact a member of the moderation team for help. Try to be specific about your question or topic in the title. Include as much information and details to ensure receiving best possible reply.

18. Not to conduct business over PM!
This board does not facilitate commercial transactions. Advertising of products is strictly prohibited. All inquiries regarding price, shipping, etc should be done over a secure email system. Any member found to be conducting transactions with other members will be banned without question. If any member solicits you via PM, please report them!

19. Not to request sources or reps for any controlled substance, including AAS. We are an information hub, not a marketplace. Any posts about where to obtain AAS will be deleted and the user warned or banned.
