NSW Corvette Club Forum Rules
« on: October 20, 2018, 07:16:11 PM »
Some have asked where the forum rules are.  They are shown in the registry agreement when you sign up to use the forum.

For your information here is a copy

"This National Forum is designed for the sharing of knowledge and information for the betterment of the Corvette movement throughout Australia. NSW Corvette club members and Forum members alike can "chat" re the latest info, fact finding, etc. from around the world.

It is NOT designed to air grievances, insults, defamation etc. to any particular state club, person or business.
Any threads that display content prejudicial to the spirit of the Forum use as outlined herein will be removed at the discretion of the Website Administrator.     

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any Australian, International or United States Federal Law.

Thank you for your input Peter .
I gather  form your post that yourself or staff have been notified of the post that have been closed.
  For reasons unbeknown to the majority of those of use who use the forum.
As you have mentioned that you do not monitor  each and ever posted message.
I can only assume there has been pressure imposed upon the forum owners to close those threads.
This has been an excellent forum over the years, and I trust it will be into the furture.

Concerned now, as to what one can actually talk about on this forum, without being censored.

 The facebook page is already censored. for those of you that don't know, one cannot post 'anything' without it being vetted first. I have tried a couple of times to add a comment, which does not show up for quite awhile, my wife tried to add pics once , it took 2 days.
Now its the forum.
Everything around the club seems to be subject to cancellation and review  not a great start for the new committee.

It is not okay to discuss topics that should be discussed at a committee meeting.

The NSW Corvette club set up the forum so that members could share events, discuss technical problems or to simply engage in comradery, it is not a venue to relate your grievances with the club committee, club members or forum members.

Please read the following paragraph from the forum rules.
It is NOT designed to air grievances, insults, defamation etc. to any particular state club, person or business.

This topic is now closed.
