Forum Rules

Post by Cliff Evans » 16 Sep 2017, 00:30

Although the administrators and moderators of will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and the Administrators / moderators of scalesoaring., will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise in violation of any laws.

1, The Administrators and moderators of scalesoaring. reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any content item for any reason.

2, This forum is for likeminded people pursuing the same hobby, it is therefore expected that members be respectful and courteous to one another at all times. Anyone found to be in breach of this rule may have their membership suspended or terminated without notice.

3, Any disputes between members should be dealt with in private using the PM system and not aired on the public forum. Alternatively, grievances can be mediated by moderators at the request of members concerned.

4, Before downloads are made available to members, they are expected to at least contribute towards discussions. The reason for introducing this rule is that people have been downloading plans, in numbers and not even joining the forum. Also plans that have been made available solely to this site have been found, in some cases for sale elsewhere. it was decided that limits would be put on downloads. These are as follows:

A: No downloads available at all until at least 3 contributions to discussions have been made.
B: Once contributions as listed in (A) had been met a download limit of 3 downloads per month would be granted.
C: When a member has contributed regularly all limits will be lifted.
D: Donors have no limits.

Plans that are downloaded are for personal use only unless there is a prior agreement in place.
it has been discovered that some plans that have been drawn up by members exclusively for members of SSUK have been found on other sites, sometimes for sale! This practice is unacceptable.

All downloads on the new site are now fully monitorable and traceable. Any member found to be in breach of this rule will be removed immediately.
