Default *** Site Rules - Please Read *** (Updated: 02/22/2019)

GENERAL RULES - These rules apply to all forums on www.first.thexterra.org (www.theXterra.org).

These rules apply to regular members as well as supporting members of the forum.

These rules apply to all forums, threads, posts, and private messages on www.first.thexterra.org and www.theXterra.org (herein referred to as the forum).

Administrators and Moderators reserve the right to edit, delete, and/or lock any content on this forum.

Although the administrators and moderators of the forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum. All messages express the views of the author. The owners/moderators of this forum, Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) or any sponsoring vendor (previous or current) of this forum will NOT be held responsible for the content of any information on this forum.

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

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

HEREBY RELEASES, WAIVES, DISCHARGES AND COVENANTS NOT TO SUE THE FORUM or the promoters, participants, or personnel thereof. All of the purposes herein referred to as "RELEASEES," FROM ALL LIABILITY TO THE UNDERSIGNED, his personal representatives, assigns, heirs, and next of kin FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE, AND ANY CLAIM OR DEMANDS THEREFOR ON ACCOUNT OF INJURY TO THE PERSON OR PROPERTY OR RESULTING IN DEATH OF THE UNDERSIGNED ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE CONTENT OF THE FORUM, WHETHER CASED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE

It is each individual’s responsibility to read and comply with the rules of this forum.

1) No topics containing religious, racial, or political discussion. (they are the top three flame starting topics.)

2) Do not post NSFW (Not Safe for Work), material. If you find a thread or post you feel is NSFW, please report it to the moderators.

3) Keep cussing to a minimum (there is a cuss filter setup). Do not change around letters or use spaces to avoid the cuss filter. (Talk like you would talk to your boss, parents or 5 year old daughter.)

4) Do not type in all caps - it means you are shouting.

5) Do not use excessive colors, bold letters, or ASCII characters.

6) Do not spam or flood the forum with repeated statements or questions.

7) Do not exhibit disruptive behavior.

8) Post topics under their respective forum. Keep topics on track and do not post to intentionally derail a thread. These posts maybe be moved or deleted.

9) Do not post the same topic in multiple forms.

10) Do not threaten or "flame" members of the board. This includes snide or brash comments. Treat people with respect and post with tact. If you have disagreements with board members, take it to the PMs, to communicate in private. But, do not post any part of these disagreement PMs in the public forums.

11) There will be NO advertising for the various schemes and free items on the internet. This includes "pyramid" type advertising (where you tell 5 people and if they tell 5 people you get a free iPod etc). If this is your first post you will probably be banned as you just came onto the forum to spam.

12) Any photo may be removed from a thread by the moderation group for any reason and the admin/mod's have final say. Examples of photos that may be removed;
...a. Photos showing dangerous situation for the driver, by standards or the vehicle it's self.
...b. Photos showing damage to the environment or structures.
.......1. Show vehicles on an obvious trail, clearly hardened surface, or sand.
.......2. Never show vehicles blazing a new trail.
.......3. Avoid use of the word "wilderness" in conjunction with motorized or mechanized vehicles.
.......4. Refrain from showing vehicles in excessive water or mud.
.......5. Avoid excessive speed.
...c. Photos depicting inappropriate activities. Keep the photos PG please!
...d. Any other reason we see fit.

13) Do not argue with an administrator or moderator. They have final say. You can disagree with us, but do so with respect. Do not resort to name calling (Nazi, gestapo, dictators, etc.).

14) Do not simply tell someone to use the "search" function. If you must tell someone to search, please do it politely and respectfully and provide at least one useful link pertaining to the topic.

15) One user account per person. If it is found that you have multiple accounts, all accounts will be banned. This includes circumventing a ban or just being funny.

16) Do not create pointless threads. If a thread is created just for the purpose of it being full of pointless posts it will be closed or deleted.

17) Don't be a Troll by mmaking deliberately offensive or provocative posting with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.

Continued violation and/or complete disregard of these rules may result in a temporary or permanent ban. We use an infraction system to help facilitate the content of this forum.

To try and help the moderators of this forum track problems and keep order, we are implementing user infractions. A user infraction system allows the moderators to issue warnings and infractions to users who break rules or cause trouble. When a warning or infraction is issued, a PM is sent to the user with details of why the warning or infraction was issued. This hopefully will allow for better communication with a user on exactly what rule was broken.

My hope is to not have to use this system much, but with the increased user base of the site, it's getting harder and harder to keep track of problems and handle them efficiently.

Below is the information on the infraction system and showing how many points each infraction is worth and the action taken when certain numbers are reached.

User Infraction Levels:
Infraction Warnings Points Expire Comments
Spam 1 1 3 Months 
Racial, Political or religious threads 1 1 6 Months 
Avatar, Profile picture and Signature rule violations 1 1 3 months (unless it falls under the obscene or porno graphic)
Excessive profanity / circumvent the cuss filter 1 1 3 Months 
Arguing with / Insulting a Moderator 1 1 3 Months 
General Rule Violation 1 1 3 Months 
Excessive cross-posting 1 1 3 Months 
Insulted Other Member(s) (Personal attacks, insults, snide or brash comments, or flames) 1 1 6 Months 
Obscene Material (NSFW) 1 2 6 Months (This could include text, links, video or pictures including (but not limited to) the following scantly clad women, excessive violence, illegal activities, drug use, excessive profanity or any other questionable content that could get someone fired from work for viewing).
Racism 0 3 Never (This is reserved for severe racial comments. See the racial, political or religious infraction for lesser infraction.)
Pornographic Material 0 6 Never 

Automatic Ban:
Number of Infraction Points Ban Period
3 1 Week
6 1 Month
9 3 Months
12 6 Months
15 1 Year
20 Permanent

User Infraction Forum Restrictions:
If any users reaches 5 infraction points, that user will lose access to the "TOTM" forum. Once enough infractions points expire to bring the user down below 5, the users access to these forums will be reinstated. Keep in mind, if you get an infraction for posting porn, you will lose access to these forums indefinitely.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about these rules, please discuss them here https://first.thexterra.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1.

For Sale Rules - These apply to the "For Sale" Forum on www.first.thexterra.org (www.theXterra.org).

1) No spamming the forums or cross-posting. All posts offering items for sale are to be posted in the For Sale Forum. There is no reason to post the same thing in many forums. Cross posts or posts offering items for sale anywhere other than in the For Sale Forum will be all removed at the moderator's discretion.

2) Thread bumps, these will be deleted from a thread at the moderators discretion. Please update your thread with pertinent information only.

3) This is not an auction, if you don't post a price or list what you wish to trade for, please use ebay, yahoo, or some other site to sell your stuff.

4) If you disagree with a posted price, DO NOT post your opinions within the buyers or sellers thread about how you can get it at a better price, etc., take it offline with the seller and refrain from flaming, arguing, or generating heated discussions.

5) Please indicate your location (city/State/Province, and zip/ postal code may be useful for shipping information.)

6) When a single item (out of many items listed for sale) sells, update the first post of the thread identifying as SOLD You may also delete your own threads.

7) Remember, moderators are sometimes busy. Sometimes we do not read every post. If something is out of line, pm or email a moderator so that we can correct it without a flame war.

8) All classified ads MUST have list a selling price and the items must actually be for sale at that price (i.e., no For Sale "Feelers"). The only exception to this rule is if you are parting out a truck or making an ad w/multiple listings. Even under these circumstances you still must list prices individually.

9) This isn't a place to charge considerably more or double the retail value of items being sold currently just because there is limited access. There are places like eBay for that.

10) Price hiking is not allowed based on amount of responses.

11) Once an item has sold, please update your thread from FS: to SOLD:. Or if for some reason you decide not to sell it, the change the FS: to CANX:. This will let a moderator know it's sold, so they can lock the post.

12) The owners and moderators of the www.first.thexterra.org (www.theXterra.org) are not responsible for any sales that go bad. Buy and Sell at your own risk.

TOTM RULES:

THIS IS A PHOTO CONTEST!

Please read the rules before posting.

TOTM Rules:

Truck Of The Month (TOTM) will be two parts. Starting the first day of the month, a submission thread will be started and users can start posting their picture. The submission thread will close at midnight of the last day of the month. At this time a voting poll will be created for the users to vote on their favorite picture/truck. The voting will last 7 days, at which time a winner will be announced. If after the closing of the poll there is a tie, there will be a 2 day vote off between the tied submissions. The winner will have his/her photo displayed on the front home page of the site until a new winner is picked. Winners will also receive one year of Supporting Membership added to their Profile.

1. Submit only vehicles you own.

2. If you did not take the photo, ask permission to use it.

3. You may only submit one vehicle a month.

4. Submit just one picture of the vehicle. If more than one photo is submitted, the first one posted will be chosen for voting. If you would like to change the photo you have submitted, please edit your original post.

5. Photos can be of any truck in any setting, but please try and make the photo interesting. If it's a driveway shot, shoot from an interesting angle. You should be able to tell what the vehicle is in the photo, but the entire vehicle does not need to be in the photo.

6. Please give the following details about your vehicle;

Item Info
Make
Year
Model
Trim
Color
Mod List

7. Please do not post any photos unless it is an entry in the contest.

8. DON'T POST COMMENTS IN THIS THREAD - AFTER (1) WARNING YOU WILL GET A (1) WEEK BAN. If you would like to discuss someones truck, please start a new thread in the appropriate forum.

9. TOTM Winners from this year, may not enter again until the following year.

10. Any photo may be removed from the submission thread by the moderation group for any reason and the admin/mod's have final say. Examples of photos that may be removed;

...a. Photos showing dangerous situation for the driver, by standards or the vehicle it's self.
...b. Photos showing damage to the environment or structures.
.......1. Show vehicles on an obvious trail, clearly hardened surface, or sand.
.......2. Never show vehicles blazing a new trail.
.......3. Avoid use of the word "wilderness" in conjunction with motorized or mechanized vehicles.
.......4. Refrain from showing vehicles in excessive water or mud.
.......5. Avoid excessive speed.
...c. Photos depicting inappropriate activities. Keep the photos PG please!
...d. Any other reason we see fit.

11. Do Not Re-post photos of TOTM entries! Re-posting TOTM entries in the thread only clutters the thread and makes it harder to create the TOTM Polls.

12. Entries must be made by 11:59p.m. (EST) on the last day of the month.

13. So let's have some fun!

At the end of the year we will take all of the winners and put them up against one another to have the Truck Of The Year (TOTY) selected. That winner will get some kind of award and their truck will be placed on the home page. Winners will also receive a "Lifetime Premium Membership" added to their Profile.

This contest is open to all trucks from stock to super modified, 2wd and 4wd. So get out there and get those photos. The better the photo the better the chance of you winning. Please do not risk harm or injury to yourself, your vehicle, the environment, etc. If you have a submission that boarders on that, the admin/mod team will determine if it should be allowed for submission. The rules will be followed, no questions. If rules are not followed, your entry will be removed immediately.
