Primal Forums Rules and Regulations

Post by Rig D on Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:25 am

Welcome to Primal Forums! By registering as a member on PrimalForums.com you are agreeing to the following rules and regulations of the forum:

Rules and Regulations The following rules and regulations are strict, but the Administrator and Moderators are responsible for maintaining the high quality of the Forum.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, please ask by:
• posting on this thread;
• sending a private message to any of the Administrator or Moderators

If you feel someone is out of line with these guidelines, you should contact one of the Moderators via a Private Message. The moderators have a private area on the forum for sharing information and communicating with each other to ensure agreement on any actions to be taken.

1. Forum Scope: This forum is dedicated to individuals trying to improve their health primarily through following a Paleo dieting program, in its various forms, with emphasis on the Primal Blueprint lifestyle program established by Mark Sisson. The community is designed to be a meeting place for exchanging ideas, making friends, providing mutual support, and tracking of daily life and activities.

Posts that fall outside the narrowly defined scope of primalforums.com may be deleted by moderators.

Discussion of politics, religion, or any other contentious political or social subject is forbidden.

Excessive promotion of lifestyles antithetical to the Scope of this forum (eg: veganism) is prohibited.

Promotion of your own commercial product is only permitted if approved by the Forum administration. If you have a product or service that you believe might be advantageous to the Forum please message a moderator for approval. This includes references to products and projects by persons known to you.

2. Acceptable Behaviour

2.1 Posts must remain respectful of the opinions of others, even if contrary to your own.  A forum is like a tiny social club. It is a shared space that can be as good or as bad as the group it represents.

  • If you disagree with someone, please do so in a polite, positive way.
  • You don't need to resort to personal attacks and name calling.
  • Abusive or personally denigrating language or profanity is not permitted.
  • And you don't need to have the last word.

2.2 Posts should make a contribution. Some chit-chat is allowed (this is, after all, a community), but too much may be considered forum "noise" and moved or deleted by moderators.

2.3 Before posting a question, use a search engine to attempt to answer it yourself. (If you find an answer and think other forum members may have the same question, please write a post that contains both the question and the answer you found.) You may well find that your question was previously asked and answered elsewhere on this Forum. Use the Forum's own Search tool or read back through the thread and check first.

2.4 Do not rant. Repeating yourself makes your posts part of the forum noise. If you must rant, start your own blog (try Blogger or Wordpress).

2.5 If you wind up in an argument with another member, do not fight within the forum; please take the discussion to email or to private messages.

2.6 "Drive-by-posting" is not permitted: posts from new registrants that only link to their own websites will be deleted.

3. Posting Etiquette Most of these rules are intended to make the forum faster to download and easier to scan quickly for information.

3.1 Do not use excessive formatting. Use text formatting only as necessary to clarify a post.

3.2 Do not attach images that can be viewed freely on someone else's server. Instead, simply post their URLs or an inline thumbnail that links to a larger image.

3.3 When posting links to scientific papers, include in your post an explanation of why you think it is relevant to the discussion. If a subscription is required to view the paper, state that.

3.4 Avoid excessive quoting. If your reply will immediately follow the post you're replying to, do not quote it at all. If your reply refers to a post farther up in the thread, quote only that text that is relevant to your reply. Avoid quoting images.

3.5 Signatures may not exceed two lines of plain text, with links. Images are not permitted in signatures.

4. Results of Rule Violations Admins and Mods may delete posts without warning or discussion in order to keep the Forum tidy. If a member repeatedly violates rules (or commits a single particularly egregious rule violation), a discussion is opened among the administration team about that member. Decisions to ban members are made by consensus among the administration team.

4.1 Members who repeatedly violate rules will receive an “official warning” from a forum moderator. If the problem re-occurs, the user may be banned without further notice.

4.2 Banned users found to have set up a new member account under a pseudonym will be banned again without warning.

5. Copyright

5.1 You should not use images from primalforums.com,  especially if you intend to use the images for profit.

5.2 Give credit where it's due. Credit should be given to the institutions responsible for generating the data as well as to the person who processed it.

6. Miscellaneous

6.1 Blatant advertising on the Forum is not permitted, be it for a book, product, or film. Products can certainly be discussed, critiqued, or evaluated, but posts saying "check out my product for sale" will be deleted.

6.2 This forum has a truly international membership. Many members speak English as a second (or third, or fourth) language. Be sensitive to cultural differences and the possibility that language barriers may confuse the meaning of your or others' posts. Think before reacting.

7.Interpretation of the Rules and Guidelines The Admin and Moderators are the arbiters of the final interpretation of the Rules and Regulations. Decisions regarding what constitutes infringement of the Rules as well as the responsibility to remove, edit, move or close those posts or entire threads that are seen as being harmful to the Forum resides entirely with them.
