Welcome to the UAMCC Forum! It is our belief you can network, learn, share and forge relationships that will help your business grow. So everyone can have the same opportunity, there are some simple guidelines to follow.


Forum Rules and Regulations

1. Ignorance of forum rules is not justification for misdoing. Please read this section in its entirety. We promise there is no fine print or long winded diatribe.
2. While we refrain from heavy handed moderation, everything that is posted on this forum becomes property of this administration. We reserve the right to address inappropriate conduct as outlined below.

Conduct

The UAMCC forum strides to be a friendly community. As such, name calling, personal attacks, slander, racism, profanity and spamming will not be tolerated. Remember this means ZERO tolerence!
• Offenders will be delt with swiftly, those with a prior history may be delt with more harshly. There is a no tolerence on harrassment PERIOD! WEATHER IT BE ON THE FORUM OR IN PRIVATE MESSAGING AND OR EMAIL. (This will be brought before a majority of the board if not all of the board for consideration of weather or not to allow or revolk privelages to this BBS)

• Repeat and chronic offenders will have their IP banned permanently.
Spamming / Unsolicited Advertising in the General Forums

Please refrain from doing it. If you do not know what spamming is, it merely means that you are promoting a for-profit site that you own or with which you are affiliated in areas where that behavior is prohibited.
1. You are allowed two signature links. The guidelines for signature advertising will be outlined below.
2. Posts that are titled for search engine inclusion that include city names, states, or locale are fine we encourage this.
3. You may advertise for news, events or sales that affect the entire industry here: http://www.uamcc.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=47 .
Note 1: Events, Topics, Sales or Announcements are not limited.

Example 1: If you are a distributor, you may start a thread entitled "XYZ Distributor's Specials". Within that thread you may update and add new specials.
Example 2: If you are a distributor or contractor reporting on an event, a new website, a new product, etc. ALL updates regarding that topic are to be contained within that thread. Update the thread as often as you wish but refrain from starting new threads on the same topic. New threads on the same topic will be moved or deleted by staff

Note2: Understand that if you choose to advertise, you open yourself to criticism of your product or event. Administration will only follow the general guidelines for behavior when moderating these threads.
4. File attachments such as pictures, spreadsheets, documents, pdf etc are limited in size by the board's software. The policy for the forum on pictures is to include as many pictures as you need to tell your tale. Choose your best pictures and size them appropriately.


Signature And Avatar Guidelines


1. Signature line must contain the name of your business. At this time, this forum is strictly for contractors or those entering the industry. At various times random checks will be made to verify business existence. Those members whose business cannot be located or verified via the web or local phone directory will be contacted and/or deleted.
Note: You may be new to the industry and not have an official business name yet. That is okay and we understand that. If that is the case, include that information and your location in your signature.
2. Signature line must contain your real name. For the sake of privacy, we will allow a one letter abbreviation of your last name. You may list your phone number if you choose to do so.
3. Please limit your signature line to two active website links.
Signatures not in compliance will be modified or deleted. You will be sent a private message explaining why your signature was changed by moderation.
4. Signature font is limited to a number 3 size. You may use any color you wish and choose left or center justification.
5. You may include a signature banner. Size limitation is 300 pixels by 50 pixels.
6. You are encouraged to use a custom avatar. This can be your logo or anything you choose that is not profane or offensive. Offensive is defined as a picture promoting sexual acts, prominent genitalia, and race, creed or gender bigotry.


That's it. We ask that you conduct yourself as a professional. If you follow that guideline, you have just spent two minutes reading something that will never affect you negatively.

Thank so much for being a UAMCC BBS member! Let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
