Forum Rules

  • While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, visitor messages, blog comments, picture comments and private message systems to spam other members.
  • Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. For style changes and general 'how-to' questions this should be 24 hours. For specific troubleshooting issues, use 12 hours as a guideline.
  • We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature.
  • Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
  • Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
  • While we are quite happy to have constructive comparative conversations about competitor's products, we will not tolerate blatant adverts or the sort of 'ooh look, yet another bulletin board' threads. Also, we would appreciate it if you refrain from blatant bashing of other boards.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
  • Posts discussing moderator actions are also not allowed.
  • Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  • You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
  • You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.
  • All post must be made in English
  • We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules, as access to our forums are a privilege and not a right.

 

Commercial Members

No Advertising in Forums by Commercial Members. Commercial forum members MAY NOT advertise in the NewAgeReefs forums, or through the NewAgeReefs Private Message system.  Commercial Members who pay for a sponsorship forum may advertise in their respective forum.
Commercial forum members include manufacturers, individuals selling items he or she made for more than the cost of parts and/or actual shipping charges, individuals performing services (like modifications or any other service) for which the price charged is more than the cost of parts and/or actual shipping charges, dealers, distributors, manufacturer's representatives, importers, magazine and e-zine writers and others.
 
Advertising is defined by any of the following:
Press releases and other announcements regarding any current or upcoming products, services, websites, mailing lists, or deals -- however informal they may be. Any such announcements or press releases should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for consideration in posting in the news section of the main NewAgeReefs website. Display of your company URL in your signature. You may have a URL listed in your 'Homepage' field in your member Profile only. Any commercial forum member, "past, present, or future", must denote their position within their company in their "Custom User Text" or "Title" as found within forum User Profile configuration page. For example "Designer", "Manufacturer", "Distributor", "Reseller", etc. The title must be clear and accurate.  A commercial forum member may not volunteer any information about a specific product that he is selling or making, either in response to a general request for information about a type of product or in any other discussion in the forums or through the Private Message system except for Commercial Members who pay for a sponsorship forum posting in their respective forum. For example, Commercial forum members may not suggest their own products in any way when a NewAgeReefs member asks for advice on a skimmer. Any commercial forum member caught posting about their products under the guise/profile of a non-commercial member risks consequences up to and including permanent forum banishment for all profiles. Commercial forum members may not post negative comments about products/services of competitors. A commercial forum member may not review (or make any subjective assessments of) his or her services and/or products he or she manufacturers, represents, sells. No NewAgeReefs forum member, commercial or non-commercial, may post topics or replies on the forums on behalf of commercial forum members who may be banned from the NewAgeReefs forums. Any non-commercial forum member wishing to contact a commercial forum member directly with a specific customer support issue must contact him/her either by Private Message or eMail except for those sponsors who have a paid sponsorship forum where non-commercial forum members may post questions. In summary, NewAgeReefs welcomes commercial forum members to responsibly represent their company in response to specific, pressing technical questions regarding their products or services. Commercial Members are encouraged to submit their details to the Business Directory - this directory will enable our members to quickly identify NewAgeReefs forum members that represent a commercial business on this forum (manufacturers, distributors, resellers and repairs). However, anything that would be better communicated on the commercial member's own company website is not welcome on NewAgeReefs forums.
 
If you wish to purchase advertising space, you may contact NewAgeReefs for rates. If you wish to have NewAgeReefs.com review or cover your product or service, feel free to submit it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for evaluation.
 
The only exception of the above set of rules is, of course, our Classifieds section, which is set up
for the sale of products between two non-commercial NewAgeReefs forum members.
