The WoodenBoat Forum Rules

Although the administrators and moderators of the WoodenBoat Forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of the WoodenBoat Forum, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owners of the WoodenBoat Forum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

BASIC FORUM ETIQUETTE: PLAY NICE
Reminder: by signing up to post on the WoodenBoat Forum, you've agreed to make nice, and to comply with pages and pages of rules the lawyers wrote. It all comes down to:

  • ...Don't be rude.
  • ...Don't post inappropriate pictures.
  • ...Posting copyrighted content without the permission of the copyright owner is not permitted. If copyrighted content is posted without permission, the copyright owner may contact us about the potential infringement, and request removal. Click DMCA for information on getting in touch with the our DMCA Designated Agent to make a formal complaint. You can also find the Designated Agent in the Designated Agent Registry of the US Copyright Office.
  • ...Don't sell stuff or services. That's instant banishment. Want to advertise? Click Ads, or for Forum ads, you need to use your Google Adwords acct.
  • ...Don't feed the trolls.
  • ...Don't whine at the Admin. He hates that.
  • ...Don't create a new user to come back in if you were temporarily or permanently banned. It's bad Karma.
  • ...Banning is bad for your health. Okay, smoking is worse. But, banning is like being in time-out when you were a munchkin.
  • ...Need to report an inappropriate posting/thread? Be sure to include a direct link, and why the posting is inappropriate.
  • ...What isn't appropriate to post? If you have to ask, you ought to skip registering. But, if you wouldn't say it to your kids, it doesn't belong here.
  • ...How to un-register: simply stop posting. You can also delete your own posts.
