    Forum rules, profanity and such.

    There is a Profanity Announcement at the top of each Forum reminding ALL OF US that Profanity of any kind (including misspelling's like A$$, etc.) is prohibited. We all must remember that our Forums are viewed by Members and Guests of all ages.. and what one person might see as not offensive may be just the opposite to someone else. Plus, don't forget excessive profanity raises the likelyhood that we will be classified as an adult forum which will BAN us from a variety of remote access points. We also want to encourage Guests to sign up for our Forums and enjoy our community... not hinder their doing so with the falsehood that our Forums are a Free-For-All.

    I have listed the Profanity Announcement ( By Forum Administrator: Kevlar ) below for everyone's review.. again. We ask that everyone understand these rules and help keep our Forums a "clean", fun place for us all!

    Don't Be/Act Surprised if you post Profanity (or Profanity via Abbreviations) and receive an Infraction or TO. This is what happens... and this is what WILL happen.

    If anyone has a question about our Profanity policy, or any of the forum rules look here
    http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_forum_rules
    Please contact either myself, ANY of our Moderators, or Administrators for further clarification.


    *Here, Again, is Kevlar's Profanity Announcement:

    This is just a reminder... profanity is strongly frowned upon in our general forums.

    Our staff will be working to clean up any profanity found in thread titles as well as message content. Please consider that the use of profanity on the forum degrades the content nature of our forum for all and as such, we would like to have you be your own guide to curtail the profanity. We could put a censor filter in place to remove all profanity, but it would require removal of some of the features that the users like, so we are asking you to be your own guide and think before you post.

    Any user found to be using excessive unnecessary profanity will have their posting privledges suspended or revoked based on the situation.


    Thank You.

    Just a note to remind users of the rules of the forum... we value your participation on the forum, but without rules chaos ensues and we want to make sure this place is friendly to all. These rules are not new, they have been in place since the beginning (or very close to the beginning) of the forum. We are not trying to add unnecessary rules to make life harder, but just reminding users who sometimes forget and stray down the wrong path.



    1. Harassment will not be tolerated. Spirited discussions are fine, as long as they don't turn personal with name calling, and put downs.

    2. ZERO profanity. This includes clever special character use. Keep it classy. Not JHS locker room.

    3. Keep posts on topic as you can. Some fun will be allowed, of course, as we all love that, but please refrain from having 3-4-5-6...or more conversations in one thread.

    4. Abuse of multiple threads for one topic. If you make a thread for a problem, please DO NOT make another at a later date. This gets confusing to everyone. Also shows no resolution to your ORIGINAL problem.

    5. Please don't "bait" or instigate a user, trying to create drama.

    6. Don't engage the trolls. Feeding them only makes it worse.

    7. Don't make threads of slander or libel. Things that happen off the board regarding fraud, stupidity, or general negativity do not belong here.

    8. Don't make threads instigating riots, and showing your displeasure.


    This is the best forum in the world. It takes WORK and cooperation to make it such, both from Mods/Admin and you the users.

    You guys are important to the success.
    Thanks.
