Official Forum Guidelines
 
In an effort to make ParrotForums.com more enjoyable for our members, we have adopted the following simple posting guidelines. Wed prefer not to moderate a single post, but not all of our members feel that way. Were trying our best to find a happy medium, but as this forum grows many situations will need to be handled with care. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding in creating an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone.

Selling or direct solicitation of ANYTHING in the forums or by PM is not allowed and will result in the deletion of the post. You may be notified by the Parrot Forums staff anytime these actions need to be taken. Repeat offenders will lose their posting privileges.

Private party ads are acceptable as long as they are posted in the Classifieds forum section. If your business has a product or service that you feel can benefit our community, contact us BEFORE you post!

Spamming/advertising in the general forums is not tolerated. Again, if you have a product or service that would be of interest to our members please contact the Parrot Forums administrators to learn how you can join our team and help support our community. We offer low-cost packages that can be of great benefit to you and your company.

Advertising your business or product in signatures or avatars is not allowed. Only current Supporting Vendors listed on the site may be included or mentioned in a signature. Any violations will be removed and repeat offenders will lose posting privileges.

A promotion of competing sites and/or forums is not allowed. Occasionally using the name of other sites or even posting a link to a pertinent thread from another site is acceptable, but repeatedly referring to other related sites is considered SPAM and will not be allowed. Users are not allowed to link to other forums in signatures, posts or PM's in effort to generate traffic to a competing site. This will be up to the discretion of the Parrot Forums Admin and Moderator Staff, and you may be notified if action needs to be taken.

Cross posting is not allowed and can result in the deletion of one or both posts. Cross posting is defined as posting the same information in two or more separate forums. We understand that some topics might fit into more than one forum. Please try to pick the best one and stick with it. PLEASE try to put topics in the correct forums! Supporting Vendors, are allowed to make "double post" advertising their products and/or deals outside of their own forum section WHEN an open forum section's topic pertains to their products and/or deals. Regular double posting rules apply to all other posts that are NOT business related.

Profanity is not tolerated in thread titles. Try to be as descriptive as possible when creating new threads. Getting to help you're looking for is as simple as generating an informative thread title. Titling your thread, "hey" or "question" will not get the views or response that you're looking for.

Respect other members. Do not flame, badger, disrespect or taunt anyone on the forums. If we feel a thread is getting out of hand we will close it or delete it. You can, and will be banned if you continue this type of behavior. The off road community is an awesome group of people who generally want to learn, develop and expand, so we don't expect this will be a problem.

Adult type content IS allowed in the OFF TOPIC forum ONLY! Please be courteous of other members and be sure to include a stern warning when posting such content. Please use links to adult content and use "NWS" or "NSFW" in the thread title when doing so. Again, images that are not work safe need to be in a link format. Using the Parrot Forums server and attachment feature for adult content is strictly forbidden and will be removed.

Moderators and Administrators have the final word. If you have a problem or a complaint please direct it to the administrators instead of posting in the public forums. They will quickly take the appropriate actions to resolve the issue in a private and discreet manner.

Most of all....Have fun and enjoy the forums!
