Arrow Forum Rules

Posted edited 25 Apr 2017 ACE

Updated rules as posted by Tech Admin:
Quote:
There is no charge for joining this Forum! This is a community of individuals who share a common interest in Subaru Crosstreks. Please think before you post and keep your comments limited to the topic at hand and above all be nice. If you come across any violations to these guidelines or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know through the Report Post function or the Contact Us link (bottom of the page); we'll be happy to address your concerns.

Be Courteous!
We aim to ensure that the forum is an enjoyable place that you want to visit time and time again. Treat each other with respect just as you would on the road.

Our rules extend to all sections of the website including private messaging.
Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Excessive sarcasm, belligerence, insults, profanity, anger, offensive comments about race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and national origin, are not acceptable.
Do not post libelous remarks or directly misleading information.
Stay on topic by keeping discussions relevant and on track.
Participants may not post or bump threads to pad post counts. Bumping is posting useless information, posting one-liners or any other action to deliberately keep a thread hot.
Do not post the same discussion more than once or in more than one forum.
Posts containing rude, explicit, obscene or vulgar language or abbreviations, images or links to websites with adult content/images or punctuation marks designed to "trick" our obscenity filter may be removed.
Be mindful of yourself and others. This forum is not a democracy; it is privately owned and we make the rules. If rules are violated we retain the right at our discretion to remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or remove members. Any abuse toward our staff may result in immediate suspension of your account.
Public discussion about moderation or moderator decisions is not allowed. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned. Do not repost deleted material.
NO SPAM! Our user base is not a resource to be "mined" by individuals, groups, or businesses, for profit or not for profit. Participants may not post affiliate links or links to direct others to any pages at their own commercial website or website in which they have a commercial interest.
Trolling and cyberstalking are NOT allowed and are grounds for account restriction or banishment. Trolling on this board includes posting controversial and often irrelevant or off-topic messages with the intention of (or anticipated result of) baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal, harmonious on-topic discussion, especially when a pattern of such posting is apparent.
Discussions about politics, religion and weaponry are likely to be closed or removed if they turn into flame fests.
We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously!

Posting Standards

Forum members should use the standard fonts available on the forum. The use of bold, large or colored fonts should be used sparingly. Posts containing inappropriate formatting will be removed or modified at our discretion; e.g. all caps or excessive color.
E-mail and web address are not appropriate forum user names.
Posts should be well formatted. Use paragraphs, punctuation, and capital letters appropriately. Excessive use of Netspeak/LOLspeak (internet slang) and texting shortcuts (b4, str8, etc) is not permitted. Posts with violations may be edited or deleted without notification.
The language of this forum is English. If you are not a native English speaker, do your best. We are glad to have you as a member and will be supportive and polite.
Do not post protected or copyrighted material. Information copyrighted or owned by any individual or entity other than the member should not be posted on the discussion forums without the consent of the owner. If such an event occurs, the individual posting the information shall be held solely responsible. You cannot legally post entire articles or news in the forum without permission from the copyright holder. Even if you attribute the article correctly it's still copyright infringement. Under Fair Use provisions you can legally post a small abstract of an article - or perhaps the opening paragraph. In either case please post a link to source.The exception to this rule is press releases; they are meant for distribution and can be copied and posted in their entirety. If you are not sure if you can copy something then always err on the side of caution and simply post a link to the material.

Signature Standards

Signatures must be setup in your profile rather than manually added to your messages. They will appear at the bottom of every post you make.
Signatures must be kept to a maximum of four lines (including blank lines) and contain no more than two links (non-commercial).
Signature may not include email addresses, links to competing websites, prompts to contact or a sales pitch.
Signatures must follow our forums posting standards and only one line may be bold.

Classifieds Posting Rules
Our classifieds system is offered as a benefit of membership. We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum; i.e. auto-related.

Place only one ad per item.
When your item has sold or is no longer available please post to the discussion thread to that effect.
Ads may be removed by our staff at any time for any reason.
Commercial listings (brokers sales, etc) are NOT allowed without the express consent of ClubCrosstrek.com.


Dealer/Vendor and Customer Disputes
This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to vent frustrations about vendors or sales from private parties. Please settle your differences with the seller, manufacturer and dealer through other means but not through our community.

About the First Amendment, censorship and your "right to free speech"
We believe in public freedom of speech but that right does not infer that others have to publish your speech. The Forum is privately owned and we require members to abide by our rules and by the decisions of our staff. If you post outside these guidelines your post may be edited or deleted - any law or constitutional right your country may have regarding freedom of speech does not apply to this site.

Site Management, Member Concerns & Account Closure
If we feel site rules are violated we may remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or restrict account access. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned or any other member of our site team. Do not repost deleted material. This forum is largely self-policing, which means that moderators will respond and react to problems reported through the REPORT POST option, via the CONTACT FORM at the bottom of each page, or via PM. Do not hesitate to use these tools to report any problems regarding the forum.

Requests for changes to your account should be made by using the Contact Us link at the bottom of every forum page.
Participants may only have one account. Moderators may consolidate or delete multiple accounts.
We may remove accounts that have no posts. If the account has many posts, completely deleting the account can significantly disrupt thread continuity. In that event, we may (at our discretion) disable your account in some or all of the following ways: change the user name, remove signature content, subscriptions, avatar and identifying information or replace it with fictitious info. We may change account options to refuse contact and/or ban the account. Where communication features were used to share information with other individuals (e.g., sending a personal message to another Forum user) we generally cannot remove content. If someone quoted your post, the original user name will be shown as having been quoted (which we cannot purge).


The owners/Admins/Mods of Club Crosstrek reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread that they feel goes against the rules of the site.

Yes, both this forum website and the "other" Subaru XV forum are owned by AutoGuide.com.

Club Crosstrek switched ownership from Social Knowledge to AutoGuide.com as of the 10th of November, 2016 ACE.






Originally, Club Crosstrek joined Social Knowledge 31st of November, 2013 ACE. I am unaware of who had ownership of Club Crosstrek before Social Knowledge. However, I do know the member named ClubCrosstrek and the member named PhilForce were instrumental in the creation of this forum. Based on PhilForce's join date, this site was likely founded the 30th December, 2011 ACE. In comparison, the Subaru XV Concept featured in the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show (formally known as Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition) was revealed on the 21st April, 2011 ACE.

Bottom left corner of the Posting Rules menu, at the bottom of the box, link is labeled "Forum Rules" and links to this http://www.clubcrosstrek.com/forums/...ork&page=rules

Instead, it brings users to a smilie information page rather than the forum rules.

Is this thread just to bring to our attention that the forum/s are not owned by the entity some may have thought? Or is there something more here? Or is it just cause the link was broken?

It's because the link was not sending users to the correct info, which is the forum rules.

Because the forum rules mentions our sister forum, I figured I'd provide some small-print history on the site ownership of ClubCrosstrek.
