Posting Guidelines for NewAgeGTO’s Forums:
NewAgeGTO’s forums were established to create a fun, friendly community to
interact in. In order to foster this friendly interaction and create an
environment where everyone feels comfortable posting and hanging out, we have
created a set of rules and guidelines which all members are required to follow.
These rules are general in nature, as it is impossible to spell out every
possible offense that may result in a thread being locked, deleted, or edited.
The rules are as follows:
1. Expletives (such as sh*t, f*ck, c*nt, motherf*cker, etc) are not allowed
(These have been *’d out here b/c this is the forum rules page). Please refrain
from using such words on this forum.
2. Spamming or unpaid business advertisements is not allowed. Threads or PMs
determined to be "spam" will be deleted or forwarded to the Administration. This
type of posting could possibly result with privileges to our board restricted or
denied without notice. Lottery schemes being advertised on this board are
3. Flames or derogatory insults will not be tolerated. If you disagree with
another member's point of view, do so in a mature and civil manner. If someone
posts to discuss their personal problems or seek help from other forum members,
please do not respond unless you have something positive or helpful to add. If
you find yourself being flamed or insulted by another member, please do not
dignify that person with a response. Notify a moderator and let us handle it.
4. Threads or replies promoting or expressing racist or sexist views will not be
5. Porn or other 'risque' content is not allowed. There are plenty of websites
for such material. This isn't one of them.
6. Avatars and Signatures: the same rules that apply to your posts apply to your
signatures and avatars. Please keep this in mind when selecting your avatar
7. Free posts, or posting solely for the purpose of boosting your post count
will not be tolerated.
Signature and avatar tests will be allowed in the Testing forum, where posts do
not count towards your post count. In other forums, they will be treated as free
8. Please post your topics in the most appropriate forum (i.e., tech threads
only in tech forums). If you post a thread that would be more appropriate in
another forum, a moderator will move it for you. However, please do not make the
moderators do this for you. Use your judgment to determine which forum(s) best
suits your topic. If you are dealing with a TECHNICAL topic and it could
appropriately fit in more than one forum, you may post it in multiple forums.
Multiple posting or X-Posting should be held to a maximum of 2 forums.
9. Controversial topics, such as retardation, racism, sexism, illicit
drugs/narcotic, etc., will NOT be tolerated.
10. Threads/replies encouraging other illegal/unethical action (like "Best way
to kill neighbor's dog?") will not be tolerated.
11. "Trolling", or makings posts with the sole intention of creating problems on
the forums is obviously against the forum guidelines. This includes registering
an alternate account for the sole purpose of creating problems on the forums.
"Troll accounts" will be locked immediately and permanently, and can be locked
without notification to the offender.
12. Threads/replies against or attacking NewAgeGTO’s policies will not be
13. Persistent or purposeful bashing of members will result in whatever the
Administrators deem necessary as punishment after we’ve talked about it.
14. Posting a thread or reply to question or criticize moderator or
administrator actions is not appropriate in a public forum. Please utilize the
board's Private Message function, or e-mail, if you wish to discuss these
issues. As long as you bring up your concerns maturely and civilly to the
moderator or administrator in question, we will do our best to address your
concerns fairly and promptly.
15. Posting of copyrighted information on NewAgeGTO is strictly forbidden and
will be removed. NewAgeGTO will cooperate with any copyright owner who requests
contact/other information about a user who posts their copyrighted information.
16. The chatroom is not moderated at all times. therefore all users post at
their own risk.
17. The Garage is a service provided for free. There are no guarantees made
about availably or features. We reserve the right to remove any pictures at any
given time with no prior notice. Please do not use the garage at the sole place
for images that are important to you.
18. You must be 14 years of age or older to post on NewAgeGTO.com's forums.
Any user who provides info, or gives reason to believe that they are not in
compliance with this rule will have their account and prior posts deleted.
Here are the "Do's" and "Don'ts" of addressing your concerns to moderators
"Do" be civil and polite. Bring up your concerns in a mature and respectful
manner. If you are contacting us because you violated forum guidelines, be adult
enough to admit your mistake. If your account has been locked for some reason,
talking politely to us about it in private, via e-mail or private message, can
get your account reinstated in many cases.
"Do not" be derogatory or insulting towards us. You will not get what you want
by name calling or bashing us.
All we ask is that you treat us the way you would want us to treat you. If you
treat us with respect, we will do the same for you.
If you violate forum guidelines, in most cases, you can expect the following
action from the moderators/administrators:
1. First offense- warning via private message, e-mail, and/or moderator reply in
the offending thread
2. Second offense- something we think is absolutely hilarious to your account.
3. Subsequent offense- longer account locks, possibly permanent, or something
that is even more hilarious done to your account.
Please realize that the nature of the offense will determine the action to be
taken. If the violation is extreme enough, or has been repeated enough times in
the past, a member can have his/her account locked or possibly deleted without a
Threads or replies that do not comply with our guidelines may be locked, edited,
or deleted, depending on the nature of the offense. We will make every effort to
state why such action was taken via private message, e-mail, and/or moderator
reply in the offending thread. For this reason, we ask that you check your
private messages often. You can find out whether or not you have received any
private messages by logging into your user Control Panel. You can set your
options so that the board notifies you when you have received a private message,
if you so desire.
The above rules and guidelines are necessary to make NewAgeGTO’s forums
comfortable and enjoyable for everyone. If you feel you can not comply with the
rules above, please refrain from using NewAgeGTO’s forums.
