    Forum Rules Update

    Forum Rules Update


    For some time the forum rules have not been enforced as well as they should have.

    As a reminder...


    Please read the forum rules and abide by them.

    Thank you.


    Forum Rules


    The purpose of Autogeekonline.com is for detailing discussion, providing a place for likeminded auto "Geeks" to share knowledge and partake in fellowship.

    1. The AutogeekOnline discussion forum is exclusively sponsored by Autogeek.com. Product discussion should be limited to products that are available from Autogeek.com and PBMA's family of websites.

    Links or recommendations to competing products and companies that are not available through Autogeek.com will be deleted.

    Repeated linking and recommendations of products not available through Autogeek.com may result in a permanent ban. Moderators have the right to edit any posts that contain links, recommendations or other information pertaining to competing companies that are not associated with Autogeek.com.


    2. No arguing with Moderators or Administrators.

    3. You are welcome to disagree but you must be polite.

    4. No bashing any company or their products. No bashing other people. If you can't say anything nice about someone, then don't say anything at all, this also includes talking to others in a demeaning manner.

    REMEMBER this forum is here for those that are new to detailing and those that have been doing this for years. We expect that you treat everyone with respect no matter what their level of detailing is. We all had to start somewhere.


    5. Forum Nicknames and Avatars must be family friendly, they cannot even hint towards anything raunchy, sleazy, sexual or inappropriate. When in doubt we will err on the side of caution and ask you to choose a different Avatar or Nickname.

    6. E-mail addresses cannot be used as a forum nickname.

    7. If any thread gets off topic it will be at the discretion of the moderator to close and/or move it to moderators corner.

    8. Keep language "G Rated", this includes insinuations. If you wouldn't say it in front of your grandparents, your parents or your children, then you shouldn't probably be posting to the AutogeekOnline forum.

    9. Self-promoting clickable links are not allowed in your posts. Detailers can put a link to their company in their signature, as long as they are not selling anything but their services.

    10. Moderators have the right to move any thread that does not follow within the AGO rules to moderators corner.

    11. Only one account per member! The only conceivable reason for multiple accounts would be for fraudulent activity. You will be banned for this action immediately.

    12. Continuously breaking the rules to disrupt the online community will result in you being banned from the forum.

    13. No Commercial sales, personal sales or samples from competing companies. One post trying to promote and you will have banned yourself permanently. This is a private forum not an open forum. No links to outside companies for sales either.

    14. All messages posted to AutogeekOnline become the property of Autogeek.net. and may not be deleted without first obtaining permission.

    15. No personal attacks toward members or non-members will be tolerated.




    Exceptions:
    We stand behind our Moderators, if our Moderators think you're causing problems for the online community they are empowered to take whatever action necessary to correct the problem.


    Rule Infraction Enforcement
    Everyone makes mistakes however; pushing the house rules to the limit will not be tolerated. Therefore, chronic and severe violators of AGO rules will be warned, put on a Queue (time-out), or completely banned based on the severity of the violation. We will apply rule enforcement as follows:

    1st time offense - Warning: Minor rule infractions, you will be sent a PM or email by a moderator pointing out the infraction. There will be no action at this time outside of the warning.

    2nd time offense - Queue: This will give you a 24 hour up to a two week forum break. This will occur after you have been warned previously or if you are involved with bashing of other members, being a hot-head, spamming, bad language, posting inappropriate materials.

    3rd and last time - Banned: You will have effectively banned yourself if you are a repeat offender or if you are involved with any of the following....blatant spamming/selling, attacking forum moderators, pornography, racial/sexist/threatening posts, trolling, fraud, liable/slander, multiple accounts, shills.

    Re: Forum Rules Update

    So would that include posting threads about cheap Harbor Freight DA's on this forum or is that okay? Or recommending buying GG6's from Advance Auto?

    @custmsprty - Regarding GG6.

    1. The AutogeekOnline discussion forum is exclusively sponsored by Autogeek.com. Product discussion should be limited to products that are available from Autogeek.com and PBMA's family of websites.

    Hmmmm! The GG6 is available at AGO & other retailers, so I would guess it's okay to discuss other retailers, offering what AGO sells. Or If AGO & affiliates DID NOT SELL GG6, & you touted it you would be in violation. Am I reading this correctly???????

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

    Admin. - This could really become crazy. Somebody advises IPA wipedown, & AGO does not sell IPA, is this a violation?

    Are detailers who post in show & shine are going to be careful with the banners in their shops if its advertising a product autogeek doesn't carry?

    Re: Forum Rules Update

    This is a great idea to enforce these House Rules. As we all know the forum is a great place to search and read how to info and read great write ups. There is a cost to maintain a forum and pay employees who are always courteous to customers. I want this forum to remain active. I was active in another forum that went down due to the owners neglect and really miss that forum still.

    You can talk about the GG6 but I think it should be PAINFULLY obviously you can't encourage someone to buy it elsewhere... don't you think? Seems to me the thing they are trying to crack down on is telling people on their forum to go buy something somewhere else or buy something that they don't sell right Ricorocks & Custmsprty?

    AGO does sell IPA

    I'd it OK to mention that the price is 6x what it is at Walgreen's?

    I just hope these Rules don't make their way over to Autopia

    I have always enjoyed the openness of Autopia and the freedom to disagree
