    UPDATED/CONSOLIDATED MGO FORUM AUP/RULES/GUIDELINES - PLEASE READ!

    Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
    While the Administrators and Moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the Administrators, Moderators or Webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

    You agree to limit your active forum accounts to one only. If you wish to close a previous account so you can open a new one, please contact the Forum Administrator at admin@migunowners.org and request that your account be closed before opening a new account.

    You agree not to post any:
    • Abusive Material
    • Obscene Material
    • Vulgar Material
    • Slanderous/Libelous Material
    • Hateful Material
    • Threatening Material
    • Sexually-Oriented Material
    • Material That May Violate Any Applicable Laws
    Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the Webmaster, Administrators and Moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the Webmaster, Administrators and Moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

    This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).




    Posting Rules/Guidelines

    1. Use the title field to accurately describe the topic/purpose of your post
    2. Post your message in the appropriate forum
    3. Do not post the same message in multiple forums
    4. Do not repost if your message was deleted/locked
    5. Do not reopen (unlock) your thread if it was closed/locked by a member of the forum staff
    6. Do not repost if someone else's message was deleted/locked
    7. Do not flame/troll
    8. Do not revive old posts for no reason
    9. Do not post links to materials that can be described as obscene, racist, hateful, or pornographic.
    10. Personal attacks of any kind will not be tolerated. This does not mean you cannot debate someones statement, but you should be able to do so without attacking the person. Stick to the information within the post
    11. When a Moderator or Administrator deletes off-topic posts from a thread (or alternatively splits them off into a new thread) and denotes the original thread accordingly, directing that the thread be kept on-topic, continued attempts to take the thread off-topic, especially by those previously involved with off-topic posts in that thread, will result in disciplinary action

    Failure to comply with these simple rules/guidelines may result in restricted posting privileges, account suspension or account termination.




    Posting of Private Messages on the Forums

    The posting of Private Messages (PM) on the forums is PROHIBITED. Any posts made in violation of this rule will be edited (to remove the PM content) or entirely deleted at the discretion of the Moderator/Administrator.

    DISCLOSURE/EXCEPTION
    It is hereby understood that PM's sent to members of the forum staff (Moderators, Super Moderators, Administrators), members of the Board of Directors, or members of other various committees may be posted in the restricted access, staff specific forums in order to communicate/discuss specific matters relating to the PM topic between other members of the respective staff/committee.




    Signature Line Policy

    Forum Members = no signature line on the board.

    MGO Members may create and display a "signature". A signature is a short block of text that will be inserted at the end of all your posts. If a signature is specified in your profile, then the forum will automatically append your signature to any messages you post. You can disable signatures on a per-post basis by un-ticking the 'Show Signature' checkbox when you compose your message.

    You may turn the signature on and off on posts you have already made by editing the post and altering the state of the 'Show Signature' option.

    You can create or edit a signature from your UserCP.

    Signatures are restricted to 4 lines of text with a font size of '3' or less. Images and HTML are not allowed.

    Smilies and a variety of BBCODE tags are allowed within reasonable limits as determined by the forum staff. The standard for determining acceptable limits, including color, size, etc., will be based upon the signature's prominence. A signature should not draw attention away from a post.

    An acceptable signature may contain (but not necessarily be limited to): your name, name/URL of personal website, favorite guns, line of humor, quote, philosophical message, and/or promotion of MGO related memberships, meetings, events, etc.

    Signature Line Hyperlinks:
    May contain:
    1. One hyper link to an acceptable personal/business website; and
    2. One MGO hyperlink;

    In addition to the above, paid banner advertisers are allowed one additional hyperlink to their banner ad in their signature line.




    Avatar Policy
    Because of the bandwidth required for avatars and the expense in maintaining this site, only MGO Members can display avatars. If you would like to become a member of MGO, you can find more information here.

    MGO members can install avatars from their User CP.

    Avatar Policy:
    1. Avatars may not be linked from a remote site.
    2. Avatars must be no bigger than 100 x 100 pixels and no larger than 10KB in size.
    3. Avatars must be in good taste and not depict any nudity, pornography, explicit sex, drug use or any other illegal activity.
    4. Only MGO Members are entitled to display avatars.

    I have had some people ask questions that I have answered which are beneficial.

    If both parties are OK with it...then there probably wouldn't be a complainant reporting the post.

    Not speaking for the rest of the forum staff, but I doubt I'd take any action if I saw a posted PM that seemed reasonable such as added info or clarification. However, if I saw a posted PM that was obviously not intended to be made public, then I'd take action without a report/complaint.

    Hey PT, when the mods edit a post or delete a post or lock a thread is the offending poster told? Such as a PM or something.

    As a general rule of thumb, we *try* to do so. However, sometimes there simply just aren't enough hours in the day to do so...it just depends...

    LOL! When a new member first signs-up, they have an agreement that must be acknowledged before the registration process can continue. It contains, among other things, the AUP (acceptable use policy). I updated the version posted here (and other areas of the forum) to be consistent with the sign-up agreement as it relates to having multiple forum accounts.
