[Closed] Forum Rules
We want the forums to become THE place to discuss guitar building. Discussing topics from the courses and other topics relating to guitar making. There is a multitude of practises and techniques available to practitioners and if you have experience in them we welcome you talking about them on the forum. We love inspiring and informative content, whether it's text or video!
So be creative, be inspiring, be supportive and we look forward to interacting with you in the community.
External linking, spam and advertising
Spam is not tolerated. All automated messages and advertisements will be deleted. Only external links that compliment context and add value will be allowed. Please note all links within the forums are no index which means no "link juice" will be passed. So no SEO advantage can be gained from posting links to your own sites.
Any post containing an image, video or link to a site outside of Guitar Making will require moderator approval. If your post or reply shows as hidden it is awaiting approval. Moderators will approve these posts as quickly as possible.
Posting in the forum
Please find the most appropriate place for your post and post it in there. Refrain from posting the same question in multiple forums.
Posting in the incorrect forum creates additional workload for moderators. Messages posted in the wrong topic area will be removed and placed in the correct forum by moderators. If you feel there is no suitable place for your post please put it in “Pluckers Paradise” which is for more general discussions. We are open to suggestions for new forums for specific topics.
Language, respect and tone
Respect other users. No abusing fellow forum members unless your just having the craic. Abusive posts will be deleted and members who persist will be banned.
No threats or harassment of other users will be tolerated. Any instance of threatening or harassing behaviour is grounds for immediate deletion from the forums.
No profanity or pornography is allowed. Posts containing adult material will be deleted.
Be kind, respectful and helpful to others.
'Bumping' describes commenting on your own forum topic so that a particular topic is returned to the top in the list of forum topics. Some users may even post a message with only the word "bump" to indicate they are posting only to bump the thread to the top of the list where more users will see it. This is unacceptable and users found doing this will be warned.
No posting of copyrighted materials or other illegal content is allowed. Any posts containing illegal content or copyrighted materials will be deleted.
All profile/avatar images should be 150 x 150 pixels or smaller. When posting images in topics please make sure they are web optimised and no larger than 1000px wide. Over-sized images will be removed.
Reporting topics/posts which break the rules
There is a report button located at the bottom right side on each post in a topic, simply click this, provide a reason and the forum moderators will be alerted.
