Forum Rules
Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. If you agree to the terms, please check the 'I agree' checkbox and press the 'Register' button below.

Community Guidelines:
The goal of WRJeepClub.com is to provide a friendly and informative place for people to share info, meet fellow Jeep owners, help each other with Jeep related projects and repair issues, post adventure reports, learn about issues that affect the 4 x 4 community and hang out in general. Over the years the WRJC has grown from a small group of crawlers to a large community for Jeep owners with a wide variety of interests. Our forum is intended to reflect our sport and the Jeep community in general. That is why it exists, please respect your fellow Jeep owners online just as you would on the road.

This forum is largely self-policing, the WRJC Crew (moderators and administrators) have no desire to censor or control the conversations that happen here. Most of us, while we welcome perspectives on all sides of any issue, would not invite a frequently disruptive or rude person to wheel with us, nor to any other gathering of friends that we are hosting.

Respect Each Other:
Our underlying philosophy is that we want The WRJC to be an online reflection of the wheeling community. Treat each other with respect just as you would on the road. Talking smack or challenging others' points of view and opinions is fine as long as you do so in a respectful manner.

Here are some general guidelines that we expect you to follow:
• 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 many forums. Please post topics in their proper forums.
• Do not post extreme amounts of photos. There is no reason to post many photos in threads outside of the picture or builders forum.
• Participants may not post or bump threads to pad post counts. Bumping is posting useless information, posting one-liners or any other action to deliberately keep a thread hot.
• 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. . The berating of any Law Enforcement Officer, Veteran or Active Duty Member of the Military is prohibited.
• Posts containing vulgar language which is overly explicit or obscene, images or links to websites with adult content/images are not allowed. Rule of thumb: If you wouldn't say it/show it to your Grandmother or daughter don't put it here.
• Trolling and/or Cyberstalking are NOT allowed and grounds for account restriction.
• Fair warning; discussions about politics and religion are likely to be closed or removed if they turn into flame fests.
• We do not permit posting solicitations on the forum.

Classifieds Use: Our classifieds system is offered as a benefit of membership, no commercial sales are permitted. We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum. Only members with 15 posts or more may post ads..
• Include the name of the item in the title of your post
• Place only one ad per item - do not post or repost an ad in more than one section of the classifieds.
• Do not place ads directing others to an e-bay, craigslist or other online sale or directing others to another website.
• Ads may be removed by our staff at any time for any reason.
• Ads that have been inactive for over 6 months will be removed from the board.

Dealer/Vendor and Customer Disputes: This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to vent frustrations about vendors or sales from private parties. Please settle your differences with sellers, manufacturers and dealers through the long-established legal or arbitration systems or the Better Business Bureau but not through our community.

About the First Amendment; censorship and your "right to free speech":
You do indeed have a right to free speech. However this forum is privately owned and requires members to abide by our guidelines and by the decisions of our moderators. If you cannot accept these guidelines please feel free to contact one of the many good web hosting companies out there to set up an account, create your own discussion board and exercise that right to your heart's content.

Site Management & Member Concerns:
Be mindful of yourself and others. If we feel site rules are violated we may remove, edit or delete posts and if necessary ban or restrict account access. Abuse toward our administrators or moderators may result in suspension of your account. Complaints about a moderator's decision regarding a particular post are not to 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 or any other member of our site team. Do not repost deleted material. This forum is largely self-policing, which means that moderators will respond and react to problems reported through the REPORT POST option or via PM. Do not hesitate to use these tools to report any problems regarding the forum.

Account Management:
Requests for changes to your account should be made by contacting an admin or a moderator. Participants may only have one account. Moderators may consolidate or delete multiple accounts.

Someone has to interpret these guidelines and how they apply to this forum. Ultimately it's up to our site moderators and administrator to make this decision. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please feel free to contact a moderator or administrator. Thanks to everyone for keeping the tone appropriate for a group of friends, at least the vast majority of the time. Please keep it up!
