Welcome and thank you for joining the R3 Forum community! Take a moment to go over these points that will better prepare you for navigating on the site:
• Be respectful of other members. We do NOT tolerate posts that are “bashing” or “inappropriate” in any nature as well as harassing other members.
• Make an effort to post in the appropriate section. Posts can/will be moved at the discretion of the Administrators/Moderators.
• Duplicate accounts are prohibited and may result in suspension of posting privileges and possible banning of all your user accounts.
• Discussions, feedback, and comments are welcome here as long as they are relevant and insightful. We reserve the right to edit as appropriate, delete profane, harassing, abusive and spam
comments or posts, and block repeat offenders.
To elaborate a bit more about profanity and respect for your fellow user.
We have some issues with posts on here, and we have decided that it's time to wrangle in the monster in an effort to improve the forum experience for ALL members.
Here are some areas that we will be cracking down on more:
*Profanity. Profanity simply isn't going to be acceptable, and that includes using alternate characters in place of letters. E.g. "A" followed by two "z's" is the same as an "A" followed by two "s's".
*"Dog-piling" or a "mob mentality". When a person posts a question or asks for input, and another member slams them and then four or five guys other users start jumping on. This will not be tolerated. The mod/admin team will do whatever they deem necessary as a punishment, i.e infraction/ban.
*Respect. We all need to make an effort when conversing with folks, to be as respectful as possible. Treat others like their input is gold; you don't have to like an idea but be respectful. It's possible to have a discussion with opposing views and still being friendly and respectful. Childish antics and fits and personal shots/attacks are not acceptable. Treat others with the utmost respect and you'll get it in return.
*Baiting. Multiple posts designed to instigate an argument, or crafted in a way to provoke another members response will not be tolerated.
Basically folks, if you can't treat others with respect, and keep the language down, and follow the very rules that YOU agreed to when you signed up for this forum, you don't need to be here. We're all grown men and woman, it's time we act like it. I expect the longer term members to act as a positive example for the newer guys.
This is going to be a long process, and I expect many won't like the vacations they receive. Consider this your warning folks, we will be swift in dealing with issues and won't be lenient in our disciplinary measures.
Please, everyone, before you post a message, read it again. Ask yourself "will this instigate an argument?" or "is the language acceptable?" If not, change it before you hit submit.
Thank you, we hope you enjoy your time here.
