By registering on the Kawasaki-z-classik community, you agree to adhere to the following rules. The forum administrators and moderators reserve the right to remove any posts it finds unsuitable. Members who refuse to play by the following rules will be warned and/or banned from the discussion board.

PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISING IS STRICTLY LIMITED
This forum is not a place for businesses to gratuitously advertize product. Each member belonging to a motorcycle related business is allowed a simple link (http://somesite.com) in their signature.

KEEP IT CLEAN
You may not post libelous or defamatory messages or materials, or include links to such materials in your postings. You may not post messages that are obscene, violent, abusive or designed to harass or intimidate another individual. Pornography, or any other illegal transactions may not be posted or included in members profiles, PM’s or posts. This forum is to be kept workplace and home safe.

BE CIVILIZED
Don't use racial, ethnic, gender slurs, or religious comments or any other personal discriminations - even in jest. Use of slurs offend people. Respect others' religious beliefs, culture and countries. Recognize that others have religious and personal beliefs which may differ from yours. Stay away from political debates. Keep the language and behavior appropriate.

USE DESCRIPTIVE THREAD TITLES
When you post a new thread, please give users some idea of what it contains in the title. Thread titles like "Help" or "Check this out!" are cheap ways of getting users to look at a thread they might not care about, and would not have clicked on had the full title "Help, I need credit card numbers!" been used. Furthermore, it helps stop multiple threads on the same subject. When starting a new thread, describe the content of your thread clearly in the 'Subject' line of your post. Don't use vague subjects. Use descriptive and specific subject lines. This helps others decide whether your particular words of wisdom relate to a topic they care about. For example: "HELP!!" is not an appropriate subject and neither is "My bike doesn't run".

PLEASE DON'T SHOUT!
That cap lock key wasn't invented to help you get your message across. Messages written in all caps are considered shouting.

HAS IT BEEN POSTED ALREADY?
Please look for an existing thread on a subject before you post one about it. Chances are good that your question has already been answered before you ask again. There is a search feature on these forums, use it. Starting topics that have already been answered in great detail is a waste of everyone's time. Look to see if information you're about to post has just been posted by someone else. Then go ahead and post.

WE HAVE SECTIONS FOR A REASON
The Technical Forums have different sections for a reason. If you're not sure, use your best judgment.

DON'T CROSS-POST
Cross-posting is when you post the same message multiple times in various threads or forums. We only need to see it once guys. Blatant and persistent posting of duplicate messages will get all the messages removed.

STAY ON TOPIC
Keep threads on topic. If you've got something completely unrelated to say then start a new thread.

CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF YOUR WORDS BEFORE POSTING
Adhere to the same high standards (or higher) of behavior online that you follow in real life. In real life, most people are fairly polite and law abiding. The same rules of behavior are expected on this forum.

MESSAGES SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE TOPIC BEING DISCUSSED
or introduce a relevant idea. If you've read enough threads, you've already learned how annoying it is to go through "Me Too" posts. A "Me Too" is a post that says "I agree with what the other guy said" and otherwise does not add to the content.

WELCOME
If you are a new member, introduce yourself by posting to the New Member Forum. While it's nice to welcome a new member, only do so if they have posted in the New Members forum. There is no need for 50 welcome posts in a technical forum thread.

PRIVATE MESSAGES ARE A WONDERFUL FEATURE
Please don't start a topic that is directed at one person that could be put into a PM to them. If you have a message for one or two posters, use PM or email.

IMAGES AND VIDEOS
Images & attachments may be posted as long as they are not explicit or offensive. Images are limited in size to 2mb. The Project Forum is for members' rides only and is an ideal place to document your rebuild. If something has a copyright on it, DO NOT POST IT TO THE FORUM.

FLAME-WARS
Don't even start them, they will be ended, quickly, and you'll find yourself banned all too quickly. Flaming: Personal attacks in cyberspace can be particularly vicious. Flaming is the rather nasty art of attacking others on a personal level.
Admin.
