View Full Version : The new Fox T-Bird/Cougar Messageboard Commandments. PLEASE READ

Welcome to the new Fox T-Bird/Cougar messageboard. Please take a moment to read this welcome message.

As you all know, the old messageboard was quite remarkable in that everyone got along. There were very few arguments, and even when there was one, it was settled quickly and in a friendly manner. Very seldom was a post ever deleted, locked or moved. People just plain behaved themselves. That is exactly the kind of forum we want the new one to remain. However, there are a few rules, which I hope should be common knowledge anyway:

Please post your message in the most appropriate forum. In other words, please don't post your car for sale in the tech section or something like that. I don't want to have to resort to moving threads around like they do in those other boards, but if it gets out of hand I will.
Please keep the profanity to a minimum. We're mostly mature adults here, but some people get offended by profanity. My mother visits this board occasionally and she hates the F-word, so right off it's banned. If other words are abused (like "Chevy" or "Camaro"... just kidding, OldRaven) they will be blacklisted as well.
There will be absolutely no nudity tolerated in any image, whether it is hosted on your server or ours. Our web host has a strict no-nudes policy and we honour it. Scantily-clad women in your avatars are included in the ban if they are offensive.
Racism, discrimination, sexism, name-calling and any other offensive behaviour will not be tolerated. While we hope that everyone would honour this out of decency I thought it should have been mentioned anyway.
Some topics of discussion are not permitted here. Religion and politics are the two biggies. Threads on those two subjects ALWAYS go bad. We'd really rather do without the drama here.
Spammers will be treated even worse than perpetrators of racism or discrimination. If you join this board just to post spam, links to spam, or links to offensive websites (including websites that intentionally try to damage people's computers) your post, and your account, will be deleted as soon as I become aware of it.
Finally, while the admins and mods assume no responsibility for the contents of any thread posted within this messageboard, we do reserve the right to edit, move, lock or delete any thread at our sole discretion. This is not likely to happen if the spirit of the old board carries over, but if the situation ever arises you've been informed.

I'm sure that all of you agree that we're not being too strict here. The important thing is to carry on in the same manner you would have in the old board. Have fun!

I couldn't agree more.
I think we had (have) one of the most civilized message boards on the 'net. I'm glad to be a part of the new system!
ROCK ON.

The people who post here are extremely well behaved, if i knew all of their mothers i would tell them all that they have good boys and girls, and yes im sure almost everyone is older than i am but it sounded funny

What is the board's take on NSFW (Not Safe For Work) material in posts?

*NSFW* This (http://foxtbirdcougarforums.com/showpost.php?p=97144&postcount=10) *NSFW* post doesn't contain outright nudity...but clearly violates most work-place internet usage policies. Since I do look at the board at work once in a while ;), something like this could potentially get me (or others browsing from work) fired.

Most other boards I peruse require threads with NSFW material to be labeled as such...or give links notifying the user of NSFW material if the thread isn't labeled.

This site is great people are nice and your right not much of arguing I think I bumped heads one or two times and the argument was just dropped. Which is good, I think we all just realized we have different political views and just plain different views on life but we all have one thing in common and thatís CARS more than that its 83-88 t-birds and cougars.
The other thing I like about this forum is good information I have visited other mustang forums and theirs plenty of pages of bad info and advice that goes unchallenged from other members. Donít want to bad mouth other forums I think the reason for it is everyone and there brother own a mustang and these boards are flooded w/them. On this site because where smaller, if there is wrong information your are corrected immediately (most of the time).

Anyway I love you guys.:grinno:

Can't bump a sticky. But it's necessary that all members read and abide by these commandments (rules).

Can't bump it, but it does put it back in the list of people who use the "show new posts" function of the forum. I've highlighted the one rule that people should pay particular attention to but seem to be ignoring lately...

Pretty easy rules to follow if you ask me. I learned very early in life politics and religion is two topics that you cannot discuss with anyone because no one ever agrees with you. It just breeds trouble.

There is also an unwritten rule that if you have a Box Fox 80-82 Tbird or XR-7, you MUST post up pics.:beatyoass:

;)

Seriously though, start a thread in the "User Rides" section.
