    ****************************************

    FORUM RULES

    ** Thread Hijacking: Since G6Performance is an informational site, thread hijacking is not allowed, we want to keep topics on topic. If you want to hijack threads, do so in the off topic board.

    ** Cursing: We will allow cursing in the Off Topic Threads, but if it is used in any way to insult someone or if you excessively do it, you will be given a warning. The topic may be locked. Please keep language in all other forums clean. Keep it out of the titles & Subject lines as this site is work friendly.

    ** Post Whoring: Since this site is for information on the Pontiac G6, G8, GTO, Chevrolet Malibu & Saturn Aura -post whoring is not allowed. Just get your point across and leave it at that, there is also an edit button you can use to add more, instead of pressing new reply. If you want to post whore, do it in an off topic forum.

    ** Adult Content: If you are going to post something that contains nudity, or anything related, a work warning next to it is mandatory. Something like *NWS* = Not work safe. Just so we know not to open it up at work, or in some cases, school. This type of thread is ONLY allowed in the 'Everything Else Forum'. Do not post this material in threads outside of Off Topic!

    ** Posting in proper forums: Make sure, if you are going to post a new topic, use your best judgment to put it in the right forum. Posting in the improper forum will result in topic moving, and a warning if this is repeated several times. DO NOT cross-post the same question/topic to multiple places. If you post the same thing in multiple forums in order to get more exposure, BOTH topics may be removed.

    ** If a thread has been locked/removed by a site Admin/moderator, do NOT start a new thread. If you have a question about why a thread was locked or removed, please PM the administrator or moderator that locked it- do NOT begin posting in other threads complaining/disagreeing with the decision. This type of action will be considered as flaming and will be dealt with accordingly.

    **For Sale Forum: Members are required to have a minimum of 100 posts to use this forum. G6Performance.com is not responsible for any issues relating to any potential or completed sale. Buyer beware. However, a member not completing their part in a sale may be banned from any future participation in that forum. Being banned from the forum is also possible.

    ** Please wait a reasonable amount of time before bumping posts. For style changes and general 'how-to' questions this should be 24 hours. For specific troubleshooting issues, use 12 hours as a guideline.

    ** Check that your question has not been answered anywhere else on the site. USE THE SEARCH FEATURE.

    ** Make sure you have read the parent article/post completely before posting a reply.

    ** Racist comments will not be tolerated anywhere on the forums, no matter what the context.

    ** 'Groups' are discouraged, but not prohibited. Any 'group' threads are to remain in the Off Topic Forum. Group banners and/or recruiting of 'group' members is prohibited in any other topics (including Welcome Threads).

    ** Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations is forbidden.

    ** If you make a habit of not having anything constructive to say, post to create controversy and start flame wars, you will be warned ONE time about this, if that does not work you will then be banned. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it all.

    ** Vendor Flaming/Bashing: We will allow you to post your bad experiences with a vendor but in order to do so the full story must be told. We will not allow such threads/posts that say nothing more than "DO NOT BUY FROM *insert vendor here*" and do not contain an explanation. If you hound the vendor by posting in every thread they are included in or make repeated posts about your experience to ruin their day, you will be warned of your actions then banned if it is repeated. Please keep your experience to your thread.

    *If you wish to review a product then that is allowed.

    ** Spamming: Spamming the forum with details of products or services will, at the discretion of administration, result in the posting being removed, and the poster being banned from further posting. There will be no warning for this.

    ** Concealing Identity, Multiple User Accounts & Spoofed IP's: We do not distribute ANY personal information, nor do we make a list of IP's available to ANY party for ANY purpose other than moderating this forum. There is no reason to use multiple names and/or IP addresses on this forum. The ONLY exception to this rule is for APPROVED vendors/sponsors who may choose to keep a business-only account as well as a personal account on here.

    ** We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.

    ** Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". If members note an issue which violates something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Only do this if a moderator team member has not replied within 6 hours. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who constantly "act" as moderators may be warned. There is also an icon in the lower right hand corner of each post to 'report post' if a violation needs to be brought to attention.

    ** Members are asked to not disclose to any 3rd party, board, or list any vulnerabilities in phpBB before first notifying the site administrators. You should submit all finds to the admin or web master (TLS2000). Time should be allowed for us, at least 3 working days wherever possible, to respond.

    ** This Site now operates a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offenses in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days. An exception to the three strike rule may apply based on the situation, in which a user may be subject to an immediate temporary or permanent ban. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While we may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence. In the event of a temporary ban, any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.

    Effective July 2010-If any grade of Ban is issued and the user makes another fake account or uses a proxy to get around the IP ban that user will be completely deleated.
    The user's original account will be deleted along with all their past posts, a complete WIPE with a perma ban.


    ** While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.


    Any comments, questions or concerns, please PM one of the Mods/ Global Mods/ or Admin's.
