Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Cache Valley Ready. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Consequences
    Our goal is to maintain a positive and supportive environment for all members, and we never wish to have to remove anyone from our group. However, if rules are broken, we must implement appropriate consequences. The following measures may be taken:
    • Warning - A public announcement may be made, mentioning your name and the rule violation. Depending on the situation, we will determine if you were aware of the wrongdoing or if a warning is necessary for clarification. If a warning is deemed unnecessary, we may proceed to the next step in the consequence list.
    • Muting - Your ability to communicate on the board will be temporarily restricted, though you will still be able to view it.
    • Temporary Ban - Your access to the board will be temporarily suspended for a specified period of time.
    • Permanent Ban - You will lose access to the board indefinitely.
    Please remember, our intention is always to foster a harmonious and inclusive community. By adhering to the group's guidelines, we can ensure a positive experience for all members. #
  2. Serious Violations
    The following rules outline the most serious violations that we aim to prevent in our community. These rules ensure a respectful and inclusive environment for all members:
    • No Hacking - Hacking the board is strictly prohibited. Successfully guessing someone else's password also counts as hacking. Members found hacking will be permanently banned without any warnings.
    • No Discrimination - Insulting members based on their religion, race, gender, political beliefs, or sexual orientation is not allowed. Our community values equality, and discrimination will not be tolerated. While you may have personal beliefs that conflict with certain groups, this board is not the place to express those views. There may be certain boards that talk about these topics, and beliefs may be expressed, but do so in a way that does not insult those of different beliefs.
    • No Bullying - Targeting or picking on other members is prohibited, especially towards new members. Bullying negatively impacts both the targeted member and the community as a whole.
    • No Flaming - Flaming disrupts the positive atmosphere of our community, derails discussions, and causes distress to the targeted individual. While victims may defend themselves against accusations, they should not retaliate with additional accusations, as this also counts as flaming.
    • No Profanity or Obscene Content - Inappropriate content is not welcome in our community.
    By adhering to these guidelines, we can create a respectful, inclusive, and supportive environment for all members. #
  3. Important Rules
    The following rules, while not as serious as the ones previously mentioned, are still important to ensure a well-functioning and enjoyable community for all members:
    • No Advertising - Generally, using CVR for monetary gain is not permitted. You may not use the member list to obtain contact information for soliciting members to purchase products. The only exception is for selling items in the classifieds section or discreetly responding to a direct request from another member. Promoting discounts in a separate thread is not allowed.
    • No Illegal Activity - Engaging in illegal activities on this forum is strictly prohibited, as it can lead to legal trouble for all members. This includes posting copyrighted content without proper attribution to the owner.
    • No Double Posting or Spamming - Posting the same message multiple times in a row in the same thread is not allowed. Excessive posting lowers the quality of the board and wastes memory. Spamming, defined as posting meaningless content, is also prohibited.
    • No Topic Bumping - If a topic you created has no replies, you may not post again in it, although you may edit the original post. If you need assistance with something, you may post again as long as you provide additional relevant information about your issue. Multiple threads for the same topic are not allowed.
    • No Posting Personal Information - Do not post your last name or street address on this forum, as this information becomes accessible to anyone. Protecting personal information is essential for maintaining privacy and security.
    By following these guidelines, we can create an enjoyable, functional, and secure community for everyone. #
