Default The Saxperience Community Rules have been updated.

The Saxperience Community rules have been due an update for quite some time and whilst many members have been able to abide by the new ways of interacting, which have now become custom and practice, other members have not been so switched on.

So, an official update to the community rules and guidelines has now been implemented. As ever, these guidelines may be changed / updated at any time.

You can view the forum rules / guidelines via a number of ways. (Take note for future reference).

1. When a new user account is registered, you will be asked to read the forum rules and tick, to say that you agree to abide by these rules.

2. By viewing the announcement pinned at the top of each and every forum.

3. By clicking the 'Terms of Service' link at the bottom right hand corner of all forum pages.

4. By clicking the 'forum rules' link, shown at the bottom left of forum-view and post-view pages.

As ever, if you have any constructive feedback, please lets hear it. Particularly if you feel the community would benefit from adding additional detail to some aspect of these guidelines.

Thanks
Simo

Maybe you should get existing members to tick these boxes aswell.

Maybe do a test to see if they actually read the tos.

No, lol... a simple message that comes on the screen first time you login (only appears once) and says click here to confirm you have re-read the rules.

Nice to see a 'major' update.

I still think the n00bs need to go through a trial period before they have full access. Ive noticed (and others) that the latest influx seem to have zero-grammar skills and have typos in all posts.

Admittidly, Ive never read the ToS on any site as they are blah blah blah and go on forever. Whenever I see them, I just check the box and continue. If I get banned, I have no complaints as I 'agreed' to the ToS.

The rules are just common sense, although the spam and abuse rules are grey areas imo. Seen a few posts tonight that would be seen as offensive by the PC brigade but not as others.

Life is full of grey areas, I'm a great believer in this. Many things are open to personal interpretation, but usually common sense wins

I think more needs to be done about Spam... i've seen a number of threads now since your previous thread on the problem which are kept open and Mods seem to allow it to run its course...?

I mean i can understand if it was interesting, but its just random shit. And it makes the forum less enjoyable to read if we have to sift through pointless posts.

Other than that, good idea about force reading rules though.!
Wouldnt particularly want to have to keep confirming im not a n00b everytime i enter the site though...

TBH while a great idea it sure is, in this day and age, you are inundated with t&c's, rules and procedures etc etc etc

Who ever reads them? i sure as hell dont, i dont have time to.

I unless its just a form filling exercise i doubt people will read it.

Idea - A random rule should be on screen somewhere either just above the 'Quick Reply' box or just above the first reply on the page.

Then the n00bs shouldnt fail to know them. After a certain level of activity, the rules should then disappear ie 500 posts or something daft.

I dont have any knowledge of the threads, which you have had removed.

When you registered your user account you agreed to be bound by the terms of use and it is also stated that terms can be changed at any time. So it doesnt particularly matter whether you choose to read or not, as long as you abide by the guidelines and do not grumble when you are pulled-up if you do not follow them. The click to re-confirm would act as a reminder that terms have changed, nothing more...

tbh i never looked at them when i first joined and just basically got to know the rules through the sax-p community i.e. talking to other members.

i have know looked at the rules after nearly 7 months of membership

oh and the force read kind of thing sounds a good idea.

Selling products on is trading. Especially when they are items being sold multiple times.
