Community Rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on gbarc.ca. They have been compiled and are revised regularly and should be adhered to by everyone.

Forum rules
Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. If you have a suggestion for a new topic, please send a PM to the Board Admin. This forum is for amateur radio topics by amateur radio operators, for the support of our hobby and to improve communication skills and technical abilities.

This forum is NOT a complaint resolution medium. Issues with the forums, or the GBARC webpage in general should be directly by email to executive @ gbarc.ca .

Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated. This includes other radio clubs or our national organization.

Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Community Team. Please use the “post report” feature to report posts. Do not respond to such topics yourself.

Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated.

Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc.

Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline (Image) image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.

The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users.

The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging.
