Welcome to the Federation Guard Scenario Paintball Team Forum
This forum was establish as another means of communication with current members, friends, other paintball players, to help build relationships and developing the paintball community. It is our belief that individual players and groups should take care to present a positive image of our sport to the non-paintball community rather than the popular "in your face" attitude of many “tournament” players. That is what the Federation Guard is all about besides kicking butt on the paintball field.
This is what is expected of you (and what you can expect) as a participant on this forum.
1. Be Civil- This is a non-negotiable. When you visit this forum, as a guest or as a registered user, you are still a guest here at the Federation Guard. You are expected to be on your best behavior. Personal slights, insults or other forms of attack against other users will not be tolerated. People can jokingly and even seriously disagree without becoming uncivil.
2. Sense of Humor: Try to have one! There are a lot of “characters” on this forum. Good-natured teasing and smack talking are constants around here. Please take a moment and think about the intent of a post before you fly off the handle and get your feelings all hurt. Try sending a PM to the person before you flame them for something they posted. It very well could be that you just didn’t get the joke.
3. Freedom of Speech: It does not exist here. This is a privately owned forum and site. It is not paid for with dues from the forum members. We encourage people to share their views, but it must be done in light of the rule of civility. Before you get upset about whatever someone posted in “YOUR” thread, remember: this forum (and the thread) is owned by the Members of the Federation Guard and the site owner. NOT YOU! The Admin has the ability to delete or edit ANY thread on the forum. While this power has been exercised rarely in the past, and only as a last resort, rest assured, it will be used when necessary and much more often.
4. Content: Keep it clean. Foul language, vulgarity, sexually explicit images, or other such nonsense will be deleted without prior warning. Users may receive a private warning after the fact to not repeat such inappropriate postings. Repeated infractions of this rule will result in banning of the offending user. Besides the type of content, please make sure your posts actually have content. "Bump" posts that do not actually add to the thread will be deleted.
5. Images: Personal avatars and other images posted on this forum board must not violate the prohibition against sexually explicit or vulgar content. Offending images will be promptly removed without warning. All images in posts, signatures and avatars are subject to removal or editing without notice. Avatars size are actually automatically size by the site system.
6. NO SPAMMING! There is no free advertising on this site. B/S/T threads may be posted in "The OT" for personal items being sold. If you have a commercial product or service you would like to bring to the attention of our members, you must first submit it to the Admin or Founding Members for consideration. We will consider it, but no promises. This applies to other paintball fields/games as well. Unsolicited spam will be deleted without warning and may subject the user to having his account removed and/or banned.
7. Admin Discretion: The Leadership represented on this forum reserves the right to apply any, all or none of these rules to varying degrees whenever it feels like it.
