Forum Rules

All members agreed to abide by the following rules when you created your forum user account.

“Although the administrators and moderators of the Jeep Cherokee Club will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of the Jeep Cherokee Club, nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owners of the Jeep Cherokee Club reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

These are the terms that are displayed during registration that you must accept to continue.

With that being said,there have been a number of attacks on new users recently who were thought to be trolling. These attacks give the forum the impression of being unruly and unfriendly. This behavior needs to stop or we will be forced to take action against the offenders. For this reason we are laying out rules for the forum.

Rules for the forums:

1) Please keep the posts to a courteous and respectful tone in the Cherokee and Technical sections. It is very hard for users to pick up the tone by reading a message. What you meant as humor may seem like an attack to another user.

2) Please do not clutter the technical forums with needless chatter and off-topic comebacks. This makes it hard for new users to find the information they are looking for. We have a section of the forum set aside for off-topic conversations.

3) Personal Attacks. Any post or thread that is seen to be aimed as an attack directed at any other member will not be tolerated. If you have a problem with someone then we would urge you to take it up with them through PM or by e-mail. Any threads of this content will be edited/deleted by Admins or Moderators, and if the problem persists from the same member then we will look at taking further steps. Posts like this have no place on a public forum. We ask that if a member sees a post of this kind, that you report it to a Moderator/Admin.

4) If you are the victim of a personal attack,we would encourage you to NOT reply to the post/thread that has offended you. Instead report the post. We will then take the necessary steps to remove the offending post/thread and will also PM the member who is guilty and issue them a warning about their conduct. Please DO NOT reply to the thread as it will only serve to fan the flames of an argument.

5) Politics and Religion need to be confined to the off-topic area.

6) This is not a place to air your personal grievances toward fellow members. Take it off-line.

7) No racist remarks, including derogatory slang, be it overt or covert, will be tolerated. This also applies to sexist, ageist, and any other form of 'ist.

8) Vulgarit yand Profanity need to be left at the door. The same feelings can be expressed without resulting to expletives. This includes all the ways of creatively misspelling them to bypass the filters.

9) The classified section is just that. We have no way to police the transactions nor do we have any inclination to do this. The only thing we will do is assure that transactions remain civil. The transactions take place between the party listing the for-sale or wanted to buy and the individual buying or selling. If a transaction goes bad, this board is not responsible. Buyer beware.

Members:

There are a lot of new members and I just want to remind everyone of the rules for posting in the forum. There has been an increase in the use of disguised profanity (rule #8 above). Please do not use profanity or disguised profanity in your posts. Failure to follow these rules will result in your posts being edited and if you continue to abuse them we will have to use more aggressive measures up to and including banishment from the forum.

There are ways to get your message across without the use of profanity.

All, It seems we have to bring this up every couple of months. Please read the rules for use of the forum. We have been lax with enforcement lately, especially with the holidays. This will change.

If you want to get into arguments and throw profanity around then please find another forum. That will not be tolerated. Several have stated that we are adults and should be allowed to post what they want. You are correct we are adults and there are ways to get your point across without resulting in childish arguments and profanity.

If that is the environment you want for a forum then please check out pirate4x4.com or some of the other well known venues out there.

There has also been an uptick in posts in the technical forums that are not related to the topic being discussed. I know there is a strong urge occasionally to provide a flippant remark to what you perceive as a silly question. Remember for some people this is their first car or their first 4wd. They may not have the experience you do. Please treat all new members and their questions cordially. If you feel someone is trolling then report the post. Don't reply to it as it only feeds them and give them exactly what they want. We have ways of checking on users activity that you do not see.

Yes there are a lot of one time posters who never seem to come back with more information. Some of them may be trolling but many others may never post again simply because of the reception they receive and the flippant responses to the their questions. Just because a problem has never happened to you does not mean it does not exist. A frustrated owner who comes here looking for answers is often met with scorn and ridicule. If you can't be helpful then DON"T POST in the thread.
