Escapees Forum Rules

This forum is DRAMA FREE! If you start drama you will be warned, and if you didn't learn your lesson you will be banned.

Escapees Discussion Forum Basic Rules

Rule #1: Be respectful, no fighting or personal attacks.

Rule #2: Absolutely no discussions regarding religion or politics. Posts that are political or religious in nature will be removed and all participants will be warned.

Rule #3: If you have any concerns, questions, or problems contact an Admin. Going public with your grievances is automatic grounds to be banned, regardless of your warn status.

Rule #4: Decisions of the Admins are FINAL.

Rule #5: Treat our admins with respect. Using profane language and displaying violent/abusive behavior are grounds for immediate ban and revocation of Escapees membership.

Rule#6: No Trolling! Do not start topics or discussions in order to cause conflict on the forum.
 
Rule #7: If someone starts a thread that you don't like or if it's just someone who annoys you try to avoid it. Don't feed the trolls! Use the ignore function under My Settings->Profile->Manage Ignored Users

Rule #8: No Thread Hijacking. Thread hijacking is taking over someone's thread, attacking or questioning the Original Poster's post in order to ruin the thread.

Rule #9: No commercial advertising, or spamming, is allowed. The only exception is posting of private party ads in the marketplace. See the rules listed on the main pages of each of the marketplace forums.

Rule #10: Do not start a new topic to rehash a topic which has already been closed/unapproved. Do not refer to or copy closed/unapproved topics.

Rule #11: The board is to discuss issues, not individuals. Leave names and specifics out. Don't name names unless what you're saying has been documented as fact in court or in print somewhere (bulletin boards don't count) and you can back your statements up.

Rule #12: You are responsible for your statements. What you post can be read by hundreds or thousands of people. Libelous or defamatory statements will not be tolerated. Nor will any unfounded statements of illegal activity.

Rule #13: You may not post a copyrighted photo taken by a professional photographer unless you have purchased that photo. Do not post proofs. Do not copy and post copyrighted photos from other Websites.

Rule #14: Please re-size large pictures. If pictures are considered to be too large they will be deleted without notification.
 
Rule #15: Miss use of SKP #s and Lifetime Member badges will result in a warning. If false SKP information is then not removed accordingly account will be banned.
 
Rule #16: Comments and questions relating to Escapees RV Club or any of its services should be directed to Escapes headquarters (clubbusiness@escapees.com or 888-757-2582). Escapees staff reviews the forum but does not respond to questions on the forum.

In the end these rules are ours and are up to the interpretation of our Admins. We reserve the right to suspend the access of any forum participant who violates the forum rules, or fails to follow the directions of the forum administrators and/or moderators or for any reason whatsoever. Rules subject to change as needed.

The complicated rules: Terms and conditions of use

This discussion forum is provided free of charge to individuals interested in RVing and related topics.

Commercial advertising of any sort, with the exception of postings in the RV marketplace categories, will not be allowed. The RV marketplace may only be used to advertise RVs for sale or trade, and RV specific items, as defined by the rules posted within each RV marketplace forum. Commercial postings in the general forums, spamming, the collection of e-mail addresses for mass marketing, and any other related activities are prohibited.

The focus of the discussion forum is intended to be RVing. All aspects of RVs and RVing are fair game. Posts, pictures, or links that are political, religious, sexual, or government-related in nature are not allowed on the forum. Posts or topics primarily intended to create controversy or dissent are also unacceptable. Please stay on topic when posting and responding.

Please note that anything you post will be visible to the general public, so be careful with private or personal information. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. Escapees RV Club cannot guarantee the accuracy of claims or the true identity of users. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.

We reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you. We also reserve the right to suspend the access of any forum participant who violates the forum rules, or fails to follow the directions of the forum administrators and/or moderators, or for any reason whatsoever that the administrators or moderators feel is sufficient grounds for suspension.
