Please review them here.

The staff and moderators have developed these to help clear up any "gray areas" regarding posting on Focaljet. Most are simply common sense, please read and abide by them.

The guidelines will evolve over time, based on need.

Please feel free to ask for clairification on any guidelines in this thread.

Thanks,
Ron

I read them...I understand them...I have no problems with them...

I must say whoever wrote those wrote them very well and they are perfectly easy to understand

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">That issue is being reviewed and very well may make it into the next version. I wanted to get these up before the end of the year as a starting point.

i would like to see the some clear definitions between an "argument" and a "discussion" the GUDE TURBO thread could be seen as an argument but some useful information was attained and this has been the case in many other circumstances as well.

references to programs such as kazaa will get me a one week ban?
"No cross-posting (posting links in one FJ forum to a thread in another FJ forum). " does this mean i cant post any links in any thread that leads to another forum?
"Observe all copyright laws when posting material. NOTE: DO NOT post images that are copyrighted by Brenda Priddy & Company. If you use material from another web site, please give that site/person appropriate credit. "
does this mean i a should upgrade my bibliography skills to 5.0? give me a more clear example of this please.
"False/Extreme loading of our site or server is strictly prohibited.* "
not sure what this means. please define a little more clearly.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">no thats ok, its just those people that start the same thread in multiple areas, or like a thread stating "go here http://www.focaljet.com/thread because more people will see it here"

stuff like that

pointing someone to another thread for information/clarification is perfectly fine, its just the "cross posting" thats the problem

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">ok, ill try my best on this one:

i would like to see the some clear definitions between an "argument" and a "discussion" the GUDE TURBO thread could be seen as an argument but some useful information was attained and this has been the case in many other circumstances as well.


example: argument

joe: yo i just got the gude turbo and its awesome!

mac: STFU GUDE SUCKS ****! GET A REAL TURBO!

example: discussion

joe: yo i just go the gude turbo and its awesome!

mac: from my experiance the ______ turbo has shown me different curves and higher torque ... etc...

=======================================

references to programs such as kazaa will get me a one week ban?


Not necessairly, programs like Kazaa provide more than just illegal content (sorta), its not the P2P filesharing technology that is unlawful, just the illegality of acquiring copyrighted/liscensed material, like, talking how you just downloaded the newest version of Photoshop while listening to that new Metallica cd (
) and watching LotR-TT on VCD

===========================================

"No cross-posting (posting links in one FJ forum to a thread in another FJ forum). " does this mean i cant post any links in any thread that leads to another forum?


see above post by me

=============================================

"Observe all copyright laws when posting material. NOTE: DO NOT post images that are copyrighted by Brenda Priddy & Company. If you use material from another web site, please give that site/person appropriate credit. "
does this mean i a should upgrade my bibliography skills to 5.0? give me a more clear example of this please.


if i acquire content to answer a question, or post a new thread with information, i always provide a source, for example, when someone asked a question about kregal exercises, i found some techniques and posted them, but i also included a link to the site where i foud it.

just state your sources, and give proper... uh, props!


=====================================

"False/Extreme loading of our site or server is strictly prohibited.* "
not sure what this means. please define a little more clearly.


i'm not exactly sure everythin that this entails, but, dont be a script kiddie punk and try to call yourself a hacker and launch a DDoS attack on the servers to try to overload it


=================================================

i hope that helps! and anyone please correct me if i am wrong on anything

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I thought "cross posting" was like you post photos of your G2G in your section then you go to Team Rigs and post a link back to your section ?? To me thats "cross posting".

Yup, that Gude thread was not an "argument". Sure, it got a little hot at times, but it never needed to be locked. It became a "heated debate" but I think what pushes things over the edge is when people start calling eachother names and such. That never happened in that thread.

Yes, the thread was heated, and there were direct attacks on products, but the attacks were mostly founded on data and facts.

If that type of discussion is not allowed, then this will become nothing but a "Happy Happy Joy Joy Forum" in which case it really would serve no useful function.

DO NOT use Focaljet.com copyrighted images without providing proper credit(s).
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">So if you use a pic or link to a pic that is copyrighted that has the focaljet.com logo, that is enough credit correct?? As long as the logo is not cropped.

OOPS I meant to hit quote and I hit edit. Anyway, your question is answered below.


In a word, yes. All I ask is that if you use an original image from the site is that you give a cred somehow. If the pic already has a logo then perfect. Otherwise just a link or blurb is fine.

I encourage people to use our images, it helps generate interest in the site from outside parties. The guideline is basically your standard, run-of-the-mill "don't rip my **** off" comment.
