Terms of Usage & User Guidelines

TERMS OF USAGE:

Please be aware that this forum is off-road oriented, so it should go without saying that it's geared towards building a more capable off-road Toyota. Here, we talk mainly about the aspects of off-roading, trail preservation and building a more capable off-road rig. If you just have general maintenance or service questions about your Toyota please post them in the Newbie Tech section as that is what it is there for. Doing this will ensure that your question gets answered. Remember, this is an off-road oriented place, so if you have no interests in that we ask that you please respect that.

Furthermore, once you have created an account, at anytime you decide you do not want an account any longer we will not delete it if requested. We only delete accounts under extreme circumstances, which the Forum Admin of this site will constitute what qualifies as an extreme circumstance. And, even after that, any posts that were made under that account will not be deleted. If you wish to no longer participate in any further discussions here, just simply do not login to your account and make anymore posts.

By creating an account you agree to these terms.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Forum Admin. We look forward to your continued cooperation in keeping our site as the most off-road/tech oriented Toyota 4x4 site on the internet.

NOTE: Once you have created an account, please check out our New Members Area before posting.

USER GUIDELINES:
Please take a moment to review our guidelines before posting.

(1) Please keep all posts related to the section you are posting within. Threads posted in the wrong section will need to be moved to the correct section by our moderators.

(2) Spamming is prohibited in all sections in this forum and will result in the person making the post being banned, as well as the post being deleted. This includes but is not limited to: owners of businesses promoting without becoming a Sponsor, owners of a website/forum promoting their sites, etc...

(3) The Off-Topic section is there for threads pertaining to topics other than Toyotas, wheelin or for topics that have no designated sections. Borderline topics in this section will be monitored closely and can be seldomly censored if the need arises.

(4) We do not allow explicit language of any nature to be posted. This includes, but is not limited to:
- erotic stories or descriptions of sexual acts
- explicit sexual jokes
- sexual or profane terms embedded within links or URL's
- crude language
- excessive amounts of profanity

The same applies to signatures/custom user titles/avatars as well. Failure to comply will result in your account being banned.

- full nudity
- pornographic images, videos, or games
- pornographic cartoons or anime (hentai/ecchi)
- Strategically covered nudity
- Sheer or see-through clothing
- Lewd or provocative poses
- Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

The same applies to signatures/custom user titles/avatars as well. Failure to comply will result in your account being banned.

(6) Photos or links to photos of illegal activities are not allowed in this forum.

(7) No Political or Religious threads/avatar/signatures/custom usertitles are allowed in this forum. This includes any boderline threads that have the potential to turn Political/Religious as well as jokes on either subject. These topics seem to cause much debate and typically get out of hand and will be deleted on sight.

(8) No sexism is allowed. Offensive comments will be deleted. There are several female users here now so why would you want to try and run them off with stupid sexist comments?

(9) Multiple accounts are not allowed unless given direct consent by the Forum Admin. The exception would be, a Sponsor who wishes to have his sponsor account separate from his personal account may have more than one account. Registered Users creating multiple accounts for their own amusement will not be allowed. Doing this will cause their original account to be put In Limbo and they will need to contact the Forum Admin to have their account re-activated.

(10) Multiple users are not allowed to post under the same account unless given direct consent by the Forum Admin. The exception would be, a Sponsor who wishes to have multiple employees use their Sponsor account. Multiple people posting on the same account will not be allowed. Doing this will cause the account to be put In Limbo and they will need to contact the Forum Admin to have their account re-activated.

(11) No outside vendors are allowed to sell or promote their products or services ANYWHERE within this forum! This applies to signatures/custom user titles/avatars...as well as through the Classifieds section. If you wish to sell products or services you must have a minimum of a Vendors Subscription to do so. Failure to comply will result in the info being removed. This also includes former sponsors/vendors going back on previous threads posted about their company and bumping their threads to gain exposure by answering questions posted by other members. If you want to become a sponsor/vendor or renew an expired campaign click here!

(12) No excessive bandwagoning, factionalism, harassment or fighting is allowed. If specific users continue to argue in a thread to one another the thread will be closed and that will refrain the users from arguing any further. This will put an end to the argument in the thread which could not constructively contribute to the topic. If you feel the need to carry on your bashing with one another, you will need to do it by e-mail once you've seen that the thread has been closed. Please notify Forum Admin or a Moderator if users continue to make negative comments in other threads so that we can take care of the situation.

(13) Controversial threads will be deleted, this especially includes threads started to create drama. Any questionable threads will be closely watched by our Moderators.

(14) If a user replies in several threads within a short amount of time, or creates several new threads in a short amount of time, or is resurrecting several old threads in a short amount of time, the user will be put In Limbo for spam or post padding prevention. When a user is put In Limbo they will not be able to post in any threads. They will be notified that they cannot access the page they are referencing. If it is a legit user that just was bumping threads excessively then they will know instantly that they cannot post. The user will need to contact the Forum Admin to have their account re-activated at that point.

(15) Continually posting negative comments within threads is not allowed. Problem users will be watched by our moderators and will be put In Limbo if problems with them increasingly gets worse. They will need to contact the Forum Admin to have their account re-activated.

(16) Any posts made asking why a certain user has been banned are not allowed. These posts will be deleted on sight. Truth be told, if you are asking why a certain user has been banned you already know the reason for it.

(17) Threads posted with complaints of any rival forum will be deleted on sight. If you have a problem with another forum you need to settle it with that forum's staff.

(18) No Moderator/Admin/Site bashing allowed. If any type of negative comment is made towards a Moderator, Admin or the way this site is managed, whether if posted within a thread, referenced within a signature/custom user title or within an avatar, it will be deleted on sight. If a user has a valid complaint they will need to contact a Moderator or the Forum Admin to have any differences worked out. Any of the above mentioned published to complain will be deleted. This is simply to keep the peace here on this forum. Furthermore, the offending user will be put In Limbo and they will need to contact the Forum Admin to have their account re-activated.

(19) ATTENTION SPONSORS & VENDORS -

(a) You are not allowed to attack, or excessively critique the efforts of other Sponsors or Vendors. If a Sponsor or Vendor makes a negative comment about another, we will ask that they refrain from making any additional comments of that nature and to take their disagreement to email.

(b) You are not allowed to undercut prices in other rival Sponsors or Vendors threads. For example, "Sponsor A" is not allowed to post information as far as undercutting "Sponsor B's" prices in a thread in which "Sponsor B" started. In fact,"Sponsor A" should avoid even responding in "Sponsor B's" thread.

(c) You are not allowed to excessively bump threads within the Vendors Marketplace. Legitimate updates are encouraged, but bumping the majority of your existing threads simply to bump them to the top is not allowed.

We reserve the right to suspend any users account if they violate any of our guidelines. If a user violates any of the above guidelines, that user can be banned permanently or will be put In Limbo temporarily, depending on the offense. Permanent suspensions are appealable, but in general, if a user has received continuous warnings it's unlikely for there to be a reversal of the suspension since we will have already exhibited a lenient attitude prior to the suspension.

Use of this forum is a privilege not a right!

Failure to comply with any of the above guidelines may trigger one or more of the following conclusions:

(1) Your post may be edited, closed or deleted.

(2) Depending on the severity, you could possibly receive a final warning from a Moderator not to do it again.

(3) If you do not receive a final warning and notice a post that you made was edited, closed or deleted without final warning from a Moderator this should make you aware that your post was inappropriate and the edit, closing or deletion of the post should be warning enough. DO NOT start a new thread concerning the same topic as this will lead to you being banned from the forum. Please do not expect the Moderators to give you a warning every time you do not follow the guidelines that are listed here. It is your responsibility to know these guidelines.

(4) Finally, if your account is banned permanently you will not be allowed to start a new account. Furthermore, if you had purchased one of our subscriptions and your account is banned, there will be no refund of the subscription in full or in part. You will forfeit all monies in light of your account being banned.

We reserve the right to revise these guidelines at anytime.

Please note that this is a privately owned site and the forum is open to the public. If you want to participate with localized chapters of TTORA then you will need to contact your nearest local chapter. All chapters are ran by volunteers who wish to organize local events.

Futhermore, many TTORA Chapters have their own individual forum hosted here. The Guidelines listed above apply to them as well, but they may have additional Guidelines according to what each particular chapter states as such. Please check with the chapter forum to find out what their Guidelines are as to be in compliance with their posting etiquette.

Questions, comments or complaints on the way this forum is conducted? Please put your thoughts into a private email and send it to the Forum Admin. Any public complaints posted on the forum will be deleted on sight.
