Site Usage Rules

In order to maintain the most productive and efficient discussion environment, RunRyder has developed a set of Site Usage Rules. RR members agree to these rules upon registration.

The following will be closed or removed:
  • Duplicate topics.
  • Vulgar language.
  • Sexual innuendo.
  • Unfriendly members.
  • Derogatory member names.
  • Personal insults, put downs or attacks.
  • Politics or religion (moved to Off Topics).
  • Topics or Posts created to critique a member.
  • Topics or Posts created by a vendor to critique a vendor.
  • Topics or Posts that promote unethical or illegal practices.

The following topics will end up being closed for the record:
  • Topics that are used to extort member or vendor action.
  • Topics that promote boycotts, mass private messaging, or mass emailing.

The following behavior will get you locked out:
  • Bring undue attention to yourself by hijacking topics.
  • Post photos or links to porn, smut or extreme violence (no warnings here).
  • Use your signature to taunt RR or any other member.
  • Send abusive messages via RR's Private Messaging system.
  • Ignore repeated warnings that your behavior is unacceptable.

Attn REPS: Site Usage Rules Vendor Specific.

By design, RR management does not follow or read along with the tens of thousands of monthly postings. It instead relies on community feedback via the pmRR and Attn: RR links. Please use these links to report policy violations and spam.
Moderation Policy

To maintain site appeal RunRyder minimally moderates and does not mediate the conversations. It must maintain neutrality with all discussions and will never editorialize or offer opinion.

RR moderation relies on member feedback, meaning for the most part, the site is community policed. Members contribute feedback by clicking Attn: RR on problem posts. This feedback and its source will not be revealed and will remain private.

Sometimes, problem post histories take time to become apparent. Just because it was posted does not mean RR read it or approved it.

Important: RunRyder does NOT read member Private Messages unless they are specifically sent to RR. RunRyder does NOT moderate or get involved with Private Message traffic in any way, shape or form unless a PM is forwarded. Use your PM's Report Spam link to report spam or illegal activity.

Most RR moderating actions will happen without discussion. If moderation is not obvious then use pmRR to ask for clarification.
Problems with private discussions (PM or Email)

RR will only moderate (not mediate) public postings via Attn: RR feedback. RR will NOT mediate (babysit) back end discussions going on via private messages or emails. If the back end stuff is annoying you please add the problem people to your RR ignore list and or your email program's block list.
Signature Policy

  • Signatures are limited to 150 characters. For line breaks use: <br>. No other code is allowed.
  • Signatures may include: name, heli affiliations or light humor.
  • NO commercial links or advertising are allowed.
  • NO political or religious statements.
  • NO personal opinions.
  • NO comments directed toward RunRyder or other RunRyder members.
Posting Etiquette & Trolls

The following are considered bad etiquette:
  • MESSAGES TYPED WITH ALL CAPS.
  • Using one word replies such as "cool".
  • Making multiple posts with the goal of getting forum users to visit another site (spam).
  • Using the [IMG] tag to post non-RunRyder smiles. This turns on the Photo topic icon.

Troll (Internet) (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia): In Internet terminology, a troll is a person who enters an established community such as an online discussion forum and intentionally tries to cause disruption, most often in the form of posting inflammatory, off-topic, or otherwise inappropriate messages.

One way to become known as a troll is to regularly post short comment replies (junk) that on average contain no relevant content. Remember that many members see every post via the Start Here or View New links and become annoyed with throwaway posts. Please make sure your replies contain some relevant or coherent dialog.
Pinked Posts

If your post is pinked, you are not following RunRyder policy.

Pink Post Facts:
Pink posts cannot be edited.
Pink posts can be seen by all members.
Pink and deleted posts are available for review in your profile.
If your problematic posting behavior continues you will be locked out.
Create New Topic Policy

  • Do not duplicate topics. Duplicate topic spam will be removed.
  • DO NOT TYPE MESSAGES IN ALL CAPS. Posting Etiquette
  • Do not create topics that ask, warn or talk about price or where to buy, solicit bulk buys or raffles, advertise sales or product availability, or announce product ordered but not received. This is to address the insidious nature of spam.
Attn REPS: Rep posting and responses are to be of technical nature only. Reps will not be allowed to influence discussions by creating topics or posts that enhance the brands or products they represent. Such topics and posts will be pinked and closed. Repeat offenders will be locked out. By design, RR management does not follow or read along with the tens of thousands of monthly postings. It instead relies on community feedback via the pmRR and Attn: RR links. Please use these links to report policy violations and spam.

Member or Vendor Grudges

RunRyder will not tolerate never ending grudges. If you have been wronged buy a RR member or have customer service issues with a Vendor you are welcome to lay out your case via Create New Topic. The mediation topic created will be the place holder for the issue and available for search. Going beyond the opening mediation topic or prolonging the issue for months and months will not be tolerated.

Anyone wanting to add negative feedback via post reply needs to understand the following guidelines. Provide firsthand knowledge or links back to mediation topics. No second hand hearsay. No requests for PM communications.

If you insist on holding a grudge you will be locked out.

Use of RunRyder material on another web site or other networked computer environment is prohibited.
