StuntLife.com Rules
Posting Guidelines for StuntLife.com's Forums Due to some recent events, complaints, and actions, and in order to foster friendly interaction and create an environment where ALL SPORT BIKE enthusiasts feel comfortable posting and hanging out, we have created a set of rules and guidelines, which all members are required to follow. These rules are general in nature, as it is impossible to spell out every possible offense that may result in a thread being locked, deleted, or edited. The rules are as follows:

1. Flames or Derogatory Insults:
Flames or derogatory insults are strictly against the rules. If you disagree with another member's point of view, do so in a mature and civil manner. If someone posts to discuss their personal problems or seek help from other forum members, please do not respond unless you have something positive or helpful to add. If you find yourself being flamed or insulted by another member, please do not dignify that person with a response. Notify a moderator and let us handle it. If you feel you must respond to a flame or insult directly, please do NOT do so on the board. Use private messages or e-mail.

Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

2. Threats, Racism, or Sexism
Threads or replies promoting or expressing intolerant views towards minorities (race, religion, sexual preference, etc.) will not be tolerated.

3. Porn:
Porn is not welcome here. Pictures showing nudity may be allowed in our Chick Pic section and the picture is at worst, "R-rated." "X-rated" pictures, sites, or links are and will remain strictly against the rules.

4. Avatars or Signatures: Avatars and Signatures: the same rules that apply to your posts apply to your signatures and avatars. Please keep this in mind when selecting your avatar or signature. These should be "PG" rated as StuntLife is viewed by all ages. This is a motorcycle site. Your avatar and signature should reflect you and/or your bike. Posting inappropriate avatars will result in a PM from a StuntLife Moderator. You will be asked to have your avatar changed within a 24 hour period. If no action is taken, your avatar will be deleted, changed, or disabled with out further notification. Avatars containing the following apply to this rule: profanity or adult-oriented content, obscene, pornographic, advertisements in avatars and signatures, flaming or bashing other people, websites and/or businesses. First offense: warning Second offense: avatar privilege disabled

5. Posting in Appropriate Forums:
Please post your topics in the most appropriate forum (i.e., event threads only in event forums). If you post a thread that would be more appropriate in another forum, a moderator will move it for you. However, please do not make the moderators do this for you. Use your judgment to determine which forum(s) best suits your topic. If you are dealing with a TECHNICAL topic and it could appropriately fit in more than one forum, you may post it in multiple forums. Multiple posting or X-Posting should be held to a maximum of 2 forums.

6. Drugs:
Threads/replies promoting illicit drugs/narcotics will not be allowed.

7. Trolling:
"Trolling", or makings posts with the sole intention of creating problems on the forums is obviously against the forum guidelines. This includes registering an alternate ID for the sole purpose of creating problems on the forums. "Troll ID's" will be locked immediately and permanently, and can be locked without notification to the offender.

8. Police Bashing:
Persistent or purposeful “cop bashing” is not allowed. Referring to a cop, policeman, etc is appropriate but unproven defamatory remarks or titles will not be tolerated.

9. Sponsor Bashing:
Our paying Sponsors deserve respect and restraint. Attacking a sponsor on the board is strictly prohibited. If you have a complaint with a sponsor, you may send the information directly to an Administrator and it will be passed directly to the Sponsor for action or resolution. If you do post on the board about a specific problem involving a sponsor, please remain calm and state the facts. Do not let emotion cloud the issue at hand. When your thread is read by a moderator, the moderator will do the following:

A) Lock the thread and place a copy of the thread in the Moderator Forum OR the Sponsor Forum. These forums are not visible to the members but I assure you they do exist.

B) Reply to the locked thread that (A) has taken place.

C) The moderator or Administrator will update the locked thread with the response from the Sponsor OR the Sponsor will contact you directly.

We really hope situations can be resolved off-line but we will not prohibit a statement of fact BUT we will control the thread so as to stop the “Hate” or “Me too” replies these threads often generate.

10. Attacking Forum Moderators:
Posting a thread or reply to question or criticize moderator or administrator actions is not appropriate in a public forum. Please utilize the board's Private Message function, or e-mail, if you wish to discuss these issues. As long as you bring up your concerns maturely and civilly to the moderator or administrator in question, we will do our best to address your concerns fairly and promptly.

11. Classified Policies:
#1 - You must own what you are selling. Do not post ads for friends.
#2 - No retail sales that are in competition with our sponsors! They pay to advertise here and sell new parts. If you wish to sell retail items on StuntLife.com, you must become a site sponsor!
#3 - Links to Ebay auctions are OK in this forum provided the following guidelines are followed:

· The thread heading or subject line must clearly state it concerns an Ebay auction. Subject line should look something like this: 1998 Silver GSXR 750 On E-bay Set of 01 929 wheels on E-bay


12.No multiple accounts. Each individual is limited to one forums account, unless otherwise authorized by StuntLife staff. If you are a corporate user, we will allow a second forums account for personal use. If any member is found with more than 1 account on the board and/or actively uses to spam or decieve staff or board members, both accounts and IP's will be banned from StuntLife without warning.

If you violate forum guidelines, in most cases, you can expect the following action from the moderators/administrators:

1. First offense - warning via private message, e-mail, and/or moderator reply in the offending thread

2. Second offense - ID lock, possibly permanent

Please realize that the nature of the offense will determine the action to be taken. If the violation is extreme enough, or has been repeated enough times in the past, a member can have his/her ID locked without a warning.

Threads or replies that do not comply with our guidelines may be locked, edited, or deleted, depending on the nature of the offense. We will make every effort to state why such action was taken via private message, e-mail, and/or moderator reply in the offending thread. For this reason, we ask that you check your private messages often. You can find out whether or not you have received any private messages by logging into your user CP. You can set your options so that the board notifies you when you have received a private message, if you so desire.

The above rules and guidelines are necessary to make StuntLife.com forums comfortable and enjoyable for ALL Sport Bike enthusiasts. If you feel you cannot comply with the rules above, please refrain from using StuntLife.com’s forums.

Thank you,

StuntLife Staff
