    Hello,

    I have been looking all over this site for any set of rules about posting certain things. I have even asked the mods where the rules were when I got a warning for posting a picture, but never got a response back. Can someone please help a noob and tell me where these rules are?

    Thanks.:wavey:

    I read the TOS once, or so I thought I remembered, but I went to look for it again last week and couldn't find anything.

    I've posted about this, trying to get someone to tell me where the TOS is so I can read it again, and have had no luck.

    I really hope this question gets answered, i'm starting to think there no longer is a terms of service for us to follow...

    oh I see. I figured that's what it was. I don't understand why there isn't just a sticky threads for rules up top like other forums.:dunno:

    thanks for the heads up. I may need to register again just to get the rules.:rofl:

    1. No illegal message content.

    2. No foul language. We are trying to maintain a family environment and such language is not appropriate.
    Also, do not post curse words that are deliberately misspelled or have special characters inserted in them
    to avoid the bad word filter.

    3. No rude or abusive language and No flame wars are allowed here. It is possible to disagree with someone
    without getting rude.

    4. Posts with racist or extremist comments or content are not allowed. That includes links to sites with such
    content.

    5. Absolutely NO racial, religious, or sexual bigotry is allowed at any time. Don't lower yourself into dragging
    someones ethnicity or sexual orientation into an argument or disagreement.

    6. Unsolicited posts by companies and/or individuals advertising products are not allowed. (Please email
    sales@glocktalk.com for info. on becoming a sponsor.)

    7. Posts with sexually suggestive or explicit content are not allowed. That includes links to sites with such
    content.

    8. Do NOT reopen threads pertaining to subjects that had previous threads closed.

    9. Do NOT post the same or similar thread in multiple forums. Select the forum best suited for the topic and
    post it there. Multiple postings with the same subject matter by the same member will not be allowed.

    10. Do not post or link to content containing graphic depictions of injury or death to people or animals.

    11. We do not allow anyone to be registered under more than ONE member name. There is absolutely NO
    reason to have an extra account unless it is used for trolling purposes. If you are found to have more than
    one account, you will risk losing ALL of your accounts.

    12. Avatars of your own choosing are allowed for 'Senior Members', as long as they are tasteful in content,
    and conform to the rules above. The Administrators and Moderators DO NOT want members using the avatar
    system to make extremely bigoted personal, religious, or political statements. They should be used to express
    your likes, loves, and individuality.

    13. Signature lines fall under the same rules and regulations as your avatars. If your signature line doesn't
    meet the above rules, it isn't allowed.

    14. List ALL 'FOR SALE' items in the proper 'Want Ads' forum. You are NOT to list items for sale in any other
    part of the site. Find the proper category for your item and list it there. DO NOT use other forums, such as
    State forums, General Non-Glocking, General Glocking, or Non-Glock Firearms, to sell anything. This also
    pertains to items you seek that are 'Wanted to Buy'. Put these in the 'Wanted to Buy' forum in the Want Ads
    area ONLY. Also, DO NOT post a 'link' to 'For Sale' ads you may have on other boards, such as GunBroker or
    GunsAmerica. Links in other forums hold the same weight as Ads themselves, they aren't allowed.

    15.We ask that you keep your bumps and BTT's (Back To Top's) in the 'For Sale'/'Want Ad' section to one
    (1) a day. We want everyone to have a chance at the first page. Anyone found to be BTT-ing too often will
    have their ads removed.

    16. Eric will not allow Glock Talk to be used to deliberately trash, denigrate, or malign another forum or site.
    DO NOT drag your board wars over to this site. If you do so, it will jeopardize your account on Glock Talk.

    Eric has said that everyone is welcome to hang out here and express their opinions, but we expect anyone
    that chooses to post, to do so within the confines of the posting rules above. We reserve the right to close,
    edit, or remove any post or thread that violates the rules here. Anyone that repeatedly violates the rules will
    not be allowed to participate here. You can disagree with someone, just do so like an adult.

    17. Cheesecake/beefcake threads and posts are not allowed here. If you want to look at or post pictures of
    scantily-clad women (or men) please do so elsewhere. This isn't the place for it.

    Above all else, we expect people to be treated with RESPECT!

    That would be a violation of the TOS.

    Thank you!

    Would you happen to have a link to where this is officially posted, so I can reference it in the future, if it's not too much trouble?

    Thanks again!!

    You can do a search on your previous posts to find this thread again.

    To the OP, don't get too hung up on the "rules".
    The main one you need to remember is that Mods can do anything they want at anytime. Threads sometimes get locked for no apparent reason.....no rhyme or reason. That's just the way it is. Oh, and if you say something you'll get in trouble and be reminded that you are not supposed to comment on closed threads.
