Crossroads Owners Forum Community Rules

For those who haven't read the rules, and for a few that need a refresher/reminder.



Be Courteous! We would like the Crossroads Owners Forums to be an online reflection of the RV'ing community. Treat each other with respect just as you would around a campfire. Here are some general guidelines that we expect you to follow:
  • Our rules extend to all sections of the website including messaging functions, galleries and any other public or private posting.
  • Do not engage in personal attacks.
  • Do not post libelous remarks or directly misleading information.
  • Do not post the same discussion topic more than once or in several areas of the forum.
  • Please post in the proper category.
  • Do not take every opportunity to express your disagreement, incite argument, insult each other, or fan flames. Voice your opinion respectfully and then let it go.
  • We will not tolerate bigotry in any form, including posts intended to incite expressions of such bigotry from others.
  • Posts containing vulgar language that are overly explicit or obscene, images or links to websites with adult content/images are not allowed.
  • Trolling and cyberstalking are NOT allowed and are grounds for account restriction or banishment. Trolling on this board includes posting controversial and often irrelevant or off-topic messages with the intention of (or anticipated result of) baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal, harmonious on-topic discussion, especially when a pattern of such posting is apparent.
  • Our user base is not a resource to be "mined" by individuals, groups, or businesses, for profit or not for profit. Participants may not post affiliate links or links to direct others to any pages at their own commercial website or website in which they have a commercial interest, including informational pages unless a vendor account has been established.
  • Be mindful of yourself and others. This forum is not a democracy; it is privately owned and we make the rules. If rules are violated we retain the right to remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or remove members. Any abuse directed at our staff may/will result in immediate suspension of your account. Complaints about moderator decisions may not be made in posts; instead send a private message to a moderator. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned. Do not repost deleted material.
  • Fair warning; discussions about politics, weaponry and religion are likely to be closed or removed if they become disruptive to the community.
  • We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate any rudeness.

I like proactive moderators. Please stay on it as you have been.

However, I see comments in many forums that were not meant to be trollish but were taken to be. The written word is cold and unnuanced since there is no tone of voice or body language to soften or otherwise modify it.

I suggest (and do it myself) that you read before posting anything you write online to see how it sounds, with an eye to how a stranger who doesn't know you would take it. If you wouldn't say it to a stranger on a street corner, you probably shouldn't say it online.

That being said, trolls are trolls and need to be quashed immediately, if not sooner. Argument and uproar are what a troll wants so quickly and quietly shutting them down is essential IMHO.

Keep up the good work!

A few well placed smilies help a lot to assist with intent.
