In posting to any part of the forum all members agree to abide by the following rules. Any queries should be made via PM to one of the Admin/Moderation Team
Swearing and abusive language is not tolerated, there is a swear filter in place with only the real harsh swear words filtered, we recently relaxed the filter a little as a mark of trust, so please try not to abuse that trust.
No illegal or possibly illegal comments, for example, racist, libellous or threatening remarks.
We do not claim to be child friendly or a 'family forum', but please be mindful of others when posting. Just because you are not offended yourself doesn't mean someone else won't be.
Please don't take forum threads "Off Topic". However, the 'original poster' ("OP") of the thread is given more leniency to do so.
No 'goodbye' posts. If you wish to leave the forums or site, we regret that you are doing so, but please do so quietly.
No blatant and unnecessary spamming.
Please do not cross post threads and posts (Ie submitting the same thread/post twice or more in separate forum locations).
Trading outside the classifieds forums is prohibited.
If you walked into a pub, you would introduce yourself before talking to a stranger, forums share a lot in common with a pub. A quick post to introduce yourself, along with filling your profile in (even with the vaguest of details i.e Woodford or Birmingham ,etc), would help let other users to get to know you, if only a little.
Private Mail Should Dictate Private Responses
If someone on a discussion forum has sent a private message to you (i.e., not posted in the forum) and you have lost that person's address but want to respond, do not post private messages to the forum. Post a message to the forum only requesting that the person contact you again, without giving the details of any off-forum messages.
Flaming is Inappropriate
Discussions will often result in disagreements. Rebuttals to another person's opinions or beliefs should always be made in a rational, logical and mature manner, whether they are made publicly or privately. "Flaming," or insulting another forum subscriber, is never appropriate. Nissan Navara.net forum exists to help find information and get to know other users, and making forum subscribers uncomfortable interferes with the purposes of the forum.
Subscribers should refrain from abusive or derogatory language that might be considered offensive. Nissan Navara.net reserves the right to ban a user who disregards this guideline. This also applies to the usage of inappropriate or offensive avatars or signatures, or pictues either presented within posts or via a link to another source or site.
Please do not use "text talk" on the forum i.e. U instead of "you" or 4 instead of "for" etc, this makes the reading of posts difficult for many and isn't necessary. The usual acronyms/initialisms are allowed i.e. "LOL" (laugh out loud) "atm" (at the moment) etc, but please spell words to the best of your ability so that everybody can understand.
Unsolicited Advertising and Chain Letters
Most of these are contrary to appropriate use policies governing the use of the poster's Internet access provider. Not only that, they are annoying and (in the case of chain letters) often illegal. Please note that Nissan Navara.net does not distribute the email addresses of forum subscribers, and any unsolicited advertising and chain letters that appear on the forum should be reported to a moderator.
Users of the forum are invited to use their own custom avatar as part of their profile. This can be added using the User Control Panel. All Avatars should meet all other forum guidelines including copyright and inappropriate content. Moderators retain the right to remove any avatar that is deemed inappropriate at any time without notice
Other Disruptive or Abusive Behaviour
Be sure that you as a forum participator set a good example of positive interaction and good netiquette practice. Good manners are the same on the internet as they are in person - being polite, considerate of others, and respectful of opinions that may differ from your own are the key to successful interaction on the Nissan Navara.net Forum. This forum is not the medium for any personal issues or disagreements between any members.
The role of the moderators is to uphold the rules and they have the power to take the necessary action which includes warnings and banning wherever they deem it to be appropriate. Nissan Navara.net operates a "three strikes and out" system of action, which may lead to bans ranging from 30 minutes to lifetime. The moderators decision is final.
