|FiberglassRV.com Community Rules
Registering and participating at Fiberglassrv.com constitutes agreement to abide by the Social Knowledge Network Terms of Service (Social Knowledge is the company that owns this forum). We reserve the right to modify these rules at any time without giving you prior notice.
There is no charge for joining this Forum and we're glad you're here! This is a community of individuals who share a common interest in molded fiberglass travel trailers. Please think before you post and keep your comments limited to the topic at hand. Above all be nice. If you come across any violations of these guidelines, or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know through the Forum's Contact Form.
Our philosophy is that we want the forum to be an online reflection of the RV'ing community. Treat each other with respect, just as you would around a campfire. Here are some general guidelines that we expect you to follow:
Forum members may use standard fonts available on the forum. The standard font size is 2. The use of bold, large or colored fonts should be done sparingly. Posts containing inappropriate formatting or content will be removed or modified at our discretion; e.g. all caps or excessive color.
E-mail addresses and web addresses are not appropriate forum user names.
The language of this forum is English. If you are not a native English speaker, do your best. We are glad to have you as a member and will be supportive and polite.
Posts should be well formatted. Use paragraphs, punctuation, and capital letters appropriately. Excessive use of Netspeak/LOLspeak (internet slang) and texting shortcuts (b4, str8, etc) is not permitted. Posts with violations may be edited or deleted without notification.
Do not post protected or copyrighted material. Information copyrighted or owned by any individual or entity other than the member should not be posted on the discussion forums without the consent of the owner. If such an event occurs, the individual posting the information shall be held solely responsible. You cannot legally post entire articles or news in the forum without permission from the copyright holder. Even if you attribute the article correctly it’s still copyright infringement. Under Fair Use provisions you can legally post a small abstract of an article - or perhaps the opening paragraph. The exception to this rule is press releases; they are meant for distribution and can be copied and distributed. If you are not sure if you can copy something then always err on the side of caution and simply post a link to the material.
Signatures must be setup in your profile rather than manually added to your messages. They will appear at the bottom of every post you make.
Classifieds Posting Rules
Our classifieds section is offered as a benefit of membership. We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum. Place only one ad per item - do not post or re-post an ad in more than one section of the classifieds. Reply to ads if you are interested in actually purchasing the item. It is up to each party to verify the authenticity of the other. Ads may be removed by our staff at any time for any reason.
Posting a "For Sale" ad for Your Trailer
Commercial Parties (For-profit companies, Industry professionals, hobby Sellers): Commercial participants must adhere to all the forum policies including these specifically set out for commercial participants.
This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to solely vent frustrations about services, products, vendors, or sales. Please settle your differences with the seller, provider, manufacturer, or dealer through other means but not through our community.
About the First Amendment, censorship and your "right to free speech
We believe in public freedom of speech but that right does not imply that others have to publish your speech. The forum is not a public resource; it is privately owned and we require members to abide by our rules and by the decisions of our staff. If you cannot accept these guidelines your post may be edited or deleted, this does not violate your right to Free Speech.
Site Management & Member Concerns
If we feel site rules are violated we may remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or restrict account access. Abuse toward our administrators or moderators may result in suspension of your account. Complaints about a moderator's decision regarding a particular post are not to be made in posts; instead send a private message to a moderator. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned or any other member of our site team. Do not repost deleted material. This forum is largely self-policing, which means that moderators will respond and react to problems reported through the REPORT POST option, via the CONTACT FORM at the bottom of each page, or via PM. Do not hesitate to use these tools to report any problems regarding the forum.
Requests for changes to your account should be made by using the Contact Us link at the bottom of every forum page.
Participants may only have one account. Moderators may consolidate or delete multiple accounts. Shill accounts, sockpuppets and any other accounts opened for the purpose of furthering the special interests of another entity are prohibited.
We may remove accounts that have no posts. If the account has many posts, completely deleting the account can significantly disrupt thread continuity. In that event, we may (if requested and at our discretion) disable your account in some or all of the following ways: change the user name, remove signature content, subscriptions, avatar and any info from the profile that might be identifying or replace it with fictitious info, change account options to refuse contact and ban the account. Where communication features were used to share information with other individuals (e.g., sending a personal message to another Forum user) we generally cannot remove content. If someone quoted your post, the original user name will be shown as having been quoted (which we cannot purge).
Someone has to interpret the above guidelines and how they apply to this forum. Ultimately it's up to our site staff to make this decision. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please feel free to contact us.
