    Default Forum Rule Review

    Lots of new members on the HKPRO Forum these days. It's probably a good idea to go over the rules and procedures for this board.

    *Post professionally. This is a professional board and we would like to keep that style in place at all times.

    *This is an HK forum. Please keep your posts on topic.

    *51 quality post minimum to create a WTS (Wanted to Sell) thread... unless you become a Premium member.

    *5 quality post minimum to send a PM.

    *No sandbagging. Do not post meaningless fluff to bolster your post count just to be able to sell. This activity is not tolerated.

    *Price checking is only allowed in the Premium sections.

    *You may not send a PM until you have at least 5 posts. Do not post meaningless fluff to inflate your count.

    *You may have missed the final posts in our old Feedback section. We do not allow the posting of general feedback. Feedback can only be left for HKPro-centric transactions via the iTrader feedback system. Limited feedback posting for "outside" HK transactions is allowed in a dedicated section. Please review the last few posts in this thread:

    *No toys. While there is no doubt that airsoft can be great fun, this is not the place to discuss or advertise toys. The only exceptions to this are collectibles that would have great interest to an HK enthusiast.

    *Please leave the locker room stuff in the locker room or your garage. No scantily clad (or nude) picture posts, no matter how hot the women are or the HK's that they are holding...

    *All WTS/WTB/WTT ads should have the appropriate prefix in the title along with the item description. A price must be included if the item is for sale (this is not an auction venue). Please do not link to auction ads unless the item is of exceptional HK interest. DO NOT FLOG YOUR OWN AUCTION.

    *No ad comments. No bickering about the price, etc.

    *Non-HK weapons must be sold in the non-HK section.

    *No ammo sales.

    *No caliber wars in the HK areas. Things like 9 vs 40 is just not an HK issue. Available in the Premium section!

    *Please do not make reloading or general ammunition posts (where to buy, ammo opinion, etc.) in the HK areas. If you have a specific question about a specific HK situation, go for it. General reloading discussion is available in the Premium section!

    *No versus. While it may seem appropriate to solicit comparisons of HK against other brands, you are just not going to obtain an unbiased response. The conversation will eventually degrade and turn in to a mud-slinging festival.

    *Let's leave the religious discussions and partisan politics discussions off of this board. Please.

    *Private party ads are acceptable as long as they are posted in the Classifieds forum section and posted by private sellers. The classified section is not intended for private entrepreneurs. If your business has a product or service that you feel can benefit our community, contact us BEFORE you post!

    *Spamming/advertising in the general forums is not tolerated. Again, if you have a product or service that would be of interest to our members please contact the HKPro administrators to learn how you can join our team and help support our community. We offer low-cost packages that can be of great benefit to you and your company.

    *Advertising your business or product in signatures or avatars is not allowed. Only current Supporting Vendors listed on the site may be included or mentioned in a signature. Any violations will be removed and repeat offenders will lose posting privileges.

    *A word to those who have been banned: Sit it out. If you are banned, you may not return under a new user name. You do not get to buy your way back in, either.

    *It should not need to be explicitly stated, but we never have allowed and will not allow multiple user ID's. This has the potential to create serious trust issues and will not be tolerated.

    *A promotion of competing sites and/or any other forums is not allowed. Repeatedly referring to other related sites is considered SPAM and will not be allowed. THIS INCLUDES LINKING TO YOUTUBE CHANNELS, monetized or otherwise. Users are not allowed to post links to other forums in signatures, posts or PM's in effort to generate traffic to another site. This will be up to the discretion of the HKPro Admin and Moderator Staff, and you may be notified if action needs to be taken.

    *You will not use this forum to post any material which is knowingly is false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, misleading, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, defamatory, tortious, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, infringes the intellectual property rights of another, involves counterfeit or stolen items, contains viruses or other programs that may damage the operation of another's computer, or is otherwise violative of any law, statute, ordinance or regulation, and you will not collect information about others, including e-mail addresses, without their consent.

    *CCW and RKBA posts go in the Premium Members section (have you joined yet?).

    *Keep your signature files manageable. This means that you should also consider the size and quantity of your graphic image attachments. Too many and too big makes it hard for others to read the forum. Signature files are not for Want To Sell or Buy advertisements. Please do not attempt to circumvent posting rules by doing this.

    *Please refrain from personal attacks; stay professional!

    At the time this original announcement was made, there were nearly 17,000 registered members and almost a half million posts (not including deleted old ads!). That's a lot. The moderators work hard to keep things between the lines. Because of the volume, we will not always be able to notify you when a post has been deleted or why. Please refer back to this announcement if you have questions. Thanks for your help and cooperation. And thanks in advance for your contribution to the HK knowledge base! Admins & Mods
