NW Bombers Website's Terms and Conditions of Participation



Updated: August 27, 2016


Welcome to the NW Bombers Website! We trust you will find the site both informative and fun, but first things first: By using our website, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions. If you do not wish to comply with these terms and conditions, you shouldn't request posting privileges on the NW Bombers Website. Please note that we reserve the right to change these guidelines at any time, and your continued use of the Website indicates that you agree to comply with any new or modified guidelines. So remember to review the NW Bombers posting guidelines from time to time.


1. Username and Access (please read this guideline carefully). Subscribers may select a username of choice (all usernames will be screened for appropriateness - no profanity or vulgarity, etc.) There is a limit of 1 username/account per individual. This is for board security. "Ghost Accounts" are not tolerated because they become outlets for abusive/ inflammatory posting. Vendor Note: Each active vendor/commercial subscriber must have his or her business name incorporated into his or her signature block. By requesting posting privileges on the NW Bombers Website, you certify that all information you provide during the registration process is accurate.

2. Conduct. The NW Bombers encourages lively and informative discussion among Discussion Forum participants. But keep it clean and productive. Do not use or allow others to use your account to:

2.1 Repeatedly post any material that the moderators feel is antagonistic to others or instigates non-productive conflict between users as well as vendors.

2.2. Post any material or comment that is considered to be "baiting" others into an unproductive conflict online. According to Webster's, baiting is: 1.) to place a lure or trap; 2.) to entice, especially by trickery or strategy; 3.) to attack or torment, especially with persistent insults, criticism, or ridicule. Baiting is considered to be any post that intentionally badgers, heckles, or leads another user(s) into an antagonistic discussion.

2.3. Post any form of solicitation on any Discussion Forum

2.4. Post or transmit any material that is mean-spirited, abusive, obscene, hateful, fraudulent, threatening, vulgar harassing or defamatory (the use of symbols or characters to mask profanity and expletives is prohibited and undermines the spirit of these guidelines)

2.5. Post, transmit or link to sexually explicit material

2.6. Post or transmit any material that you dont have authorization to transmit under the law
(copyrighted material)

2.7. Intentionally violate any applicable law or regulation

2.8. Knowingly post (or threaten to post) or transmit (or threaten to transmit) any file that contains computer viruses, corrupt files, or any other contaminating or destructive features that may damage computer equipment. 

2.9. Acceptable signature lines would include information about your truck, modifications, hobbies, career, or family. Signature lines should not include information about race, religion, political views, threats, intimidations, harassments, coercions, or uncivil, insulting, vile, or obscene language. It should also not include false, profane, or malicious statements concerning any member of the NW Bombers, or the NW Bombers Club.

2.10. Moderators may delete any post in violation of these guidelines.

2.11 Occasional recommendations of vendors by users is encouraged. However excessive promotion of vendors (cheerleading) on the forums is discouraged and may be subject to removal.

3. On a Discussion Forum of this size, responsibility and accountability are important. No one wants to
log onto a chaotic, mean-spirited forum. The consequences of non-compliance are outlined below:

3.1. One violation of the guidelines will usually warrant an e-mail notice to kindly stop/correct the
behavior. We ARE adults after all.

3.2. Two violations will usually warrant a 7 day suspension of posting privileges.


3.3. Three violations will result in your account being suspended. Moderating Staff will attempt resolution with member Via PM/ Email. If no resolution is found the account will be terminated. Please note that we reserve the right to skip steps if we feel the violation so warrants. The NW Bombers reserves the right to remove any inappropriate post or terminate your posting privileges to the Discussion Forums at any time, with or without prior notice. If a user is banned from the site you must e-mail the members and moderators with an apology. At that point a 30 day suspension will be enabled, in that 30 day time period a decision of your re-entry will be discussed among the moderators.

4. Discussion Forums. The NW Bombers Website Discussion Forum is designed to help owners solicit input from others on the proper maintenance and operation of their truck. Most truck enthusiasts want detailed information, thorough analysis, entertaining reading, and friendly (accurate) guidance. We recognize that while we have a lot of truck information in this forum, people sometimes post replies that are misleading, deceptive, or downright wrong. They may do this unintentionally or, sad to say, intentionally. Let's change the timeworn axiom to read, "Let the reader beware." Use good common sense. Remember, we do not have the staff to mediate or "police" all of the information that is posted. Analyze thoroughly before taking any advice offered. The fundamental concept is that you should not rely solely upon any information or opinions you read. Rather, you should use what you read as a starting point for doing independent
research on products and maintenance techniques.

4.1. Keep your posts relevant to the topic at hand.

4.2. Post your topic in the correct forum. Moderators will move posts that are incorrectly located.

4.3. Moderators may delete posted items offered for sale within any Discussion Forum.

5. Vendor Participation: Vendor input and commentary is welcomed in our Discussion Forums, however,
direct solicitation is not. Vendors have proven to provide insightful conversation and commentary. Demonstrate professionalism in all post to the NW Bombers Discussion Forums. The following will be strictly enforced:

5.1. The NW Bombers Discussion Forums are not an appropriate forum for emotionally charged discussion between manufacturers, distributors, dealers, shops and/or users. These forums are intended to be technical resources for members interested in learning more about the proper care and maintenance of their trucks. All Vendors will refrain from making direct, emotionally charged, posts to and/or about competitors. All Vendor posts must be civil and technically oriented. If Vendors wish to compare products with competitors, use generic references (i.e.oiled element air filter; as opposed to Amsoil, AFE,etc.).

5.2. No direct solicitation pricing discussions are allowed on the NW Bombers Discussion Forums. The discussion of prices is best left off-line in a private e-mail to those with interest as noted in the appropriate area of the Classified Advertisements. Why? Because many people who visit our Website do not want to pay to read solicitations and sales pitches in our technical Discussion Forums.

5.3. Vendor participants must have their business name incorporated into their signature block. Vendors may include their business telephone number within their Profile so that it is available to other NW Bombers website users.
 
5.4.  The Marketplace forum is mainly, but not limited to, for the sales of auto-parts, cars and trucks, RVs, and household items.  Prohibited items for sale on this forum include firearms, explosives, prescription drugs, controlled substances, Marijuana, alcohol or tobacco, child pornography, pet sales, food stamps, WIC vouchers, SNAP or WIC goods, stolen property, ID cards, licenses, police insignia, government documents, or birth certificates.


Group Purchases:
 
6. Vendor Promotions and Group Purchases. Commercial solicitation is not allowed in any Discussion Forum. They should be posted within the Classified Advertisements only. Vendor Promotions: Any advertiser of record wishing to post press releases or general NW Bombers promotions may do so within the Vendor Promotion/Group Purchase area of the Classified Advertisements in accordance with the following guidelines

6.1. Vendor promotions should clearly state a start date and an end date. Its terms must be specific.

6.2. No group purchase or vendor promotion will imply that it has the NW Bombers endorsement nor will it imply any affiliation with the NW Bombers.

6.3. Vendor promotions will be scheduled to run for 30 days. Advertisers of record can renew their promotion in subsequent 30-day intervals, if warranted. 

6.4. Any NW Bombers member wishing to set up a group purchase, please have the vendor contact a member of the NW Bombers staff directly. A group purchase must clearly state a start date and an end date. Its terms must be specific. It must include the company's name and company contact information (minimally a name and telephone number). Your name may be included in the Group Purchase as a coordination contact.

6.5. To gauge interest for a group purchase, you may make ONE post in the forums for that purpose. 

6.6. Once the group purchase is arranged, you MUST post it in the classified ads section. You may
then make ONE post in the forums pointing to that classified ad.

7. Educate, Don't Irritate. Generally, nobody enjoys posts that offer little or no information,
contains emotion at the expense of reason, or attacks another party. And remember, it is entirely possible to agree to disagree with others . . .respectfully. Diplomacy, discretion and common sense should be your guides. A click to the private e-mail icon and an off-line discussion is suggested to resolve difference. 

8. Proper Punctuation pleases the Public. Remember that TYPING IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is akin to
shouting. Also, the excessive use of exclamation marks and other punctuation can make your posting difficult to read, not to mention irritating. Remember, misspelled words reflect poorly on you.

9. It Is the WWW (Don't forget, The World Is Watching . . .). This one is simple. Be aware that anything you post on the NW Bombers Website - or anywhere on the World Wide Web for that matter - may be read by the rest of the world. Keep your pants up. We do not have the staff to change user names to protect you from something you posted without serious consideration first.
