RULES OF THE FORUM
RULES OF THE FORUMFirst and foremost, BE CIVIL. Blatant insults, name calling, etc will not be tolerated. This one needs very little explanation. We're from very different backgrounds, but come here out of a common purpose. Respect that. This is a forum of builders.The Golden Rule applies here.(Cultural reference meaning "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.") When in doubt, DON'T. Show MORE respect than less, even if the other person isn't doing so. REPORT incivility rather than respond to it. Language. Strictly PG13 (Again, American cultural reference from our film rating system) is the order of the day. Please refer to this to see what we're using as the guideline of what's appropriate. If you venture into the R or NC17 rating category, you will be answered with an immediate ban, with no questions asked, no explanations accepted. Just don't do it!Always keep in mind that other people may not think the same way you do (Somewhat the point of all this) and be sure to open yourself to the possibility that something crystal clear to you may not be to others. When conflicts arise, the best course is to be more respectful of others.Cross posting is allowed, spamming is not. If you find yourself asking "Am I spamming" you've answered your own question. Please stop or you will be banned.EnforcementVery simple, here. To start, we will try a 3-strikes rule (Except as above) for the more severe infractions (Understanding that this is a vague term at the moment). Simple mistakes and minor slips are generally forgotten quicker than they happen, but consistent troublemakers will not be given infinite rope with which to hang themselves. Should you be given a warning by a moderator, always keep in mind that the staff is tasked with doing what's best for the forum as a whole.These rules are subject to change and will do so to best serve the forum membership at large. Expect that they WILL evolve with the needs of the forum and in accordance with ACEP guidance.
