Rule #1: Maintain good fellowship.
Be nice to each other. You are expected to handle differences and disagreements with maturity and tact. Responsible debate can be healthy and appropriate. Name calling, slurs, flame posts, and other insulting remarks meant to cause conflict are not allowed. If someone is being abusive, report it to the TGO Staff. Do not try to handle it yourself.
Rule #2: Do not engage in or promote illegal, unethical or threatening activities.
You may not use this website to promote illegal, unethical, threatening or seditious activities, including but not limited to intentionally sharing private, semi-private or identifying information about people with malicious intent (aka "doxxing"), cyber bullying, fomenting sedition or calling for violent action against lawful government institutions, their employees, or elected representatives.
You should carefully consider that what you say here today could haunt you elsewhere tomorrow. The Internet provides an almost indelible record of everything said or done on websites such as this and there are many eyes upon us.
Rule #3: Keep it on topic.
Please respect your fellow participants and do your best to keep public replies relevant to whatever the ongoing discussion is. Off-Topic posts can be annoying and problematic.
Rule #4: Personal Sale Advertisements
The sale or trade of all personally owned items must be conducted through our Trading Post forums. The Trading Post has its own set of rules. You can read them by clicking this link. Ignorance of the rules is no excuse.
Rule #5: Commercial Advertisements
You must be a paying vendor or sponsor in order to advertise your business. We protect the interests of our advertisers by taking a hardline approach to cracking down on unapproved advertising. This includes the practices of "undercover advertising" -- which is to say, anyone who registers an account and masquerades as an average consumer while trying to promote a business, their products or services.
Rule #5: Respect our Sponsors
Respect our Vendors and Sponsors. If you have a complaint against an advertiser or Sponsor of TGO, you should contact them privately. We have yet to see a forum sponsor fail to help a member with a complaint if the complaint is legitimate and reasonable. Contact the TGO Staff if you believe that a Vendor or Sponsor is behaving unethically.
