1 - By using this site, all members agree to the following rules, they apply to everyone, so be sure to read the entire list.

2 - No question pertaining to an R/C is stupid. We were all new to this at one point, please try to remember that. Answer the question, try to help, or move on.

3 - Posting Threads:
Please post threads (discussion topics) in the proper area. The board is well laid out, so take the time to consider what you are posting, and where the best place to post it would be. Pics to aid in the discussion are welcome and encouraged.

4 - Pictures and videos:
All R/C related pics and vids are fine, but any pics/vids showing anything above PG-13 content will not be tolerated. The Admin/Mods will be final judge!

5 - Post content:
The posting of items depicting, expressing, or promoting the use of drugs, pornographic or adult materials, violent or vulgar content is strictly prohibited! There is NO tolerance for this. The Admin/Mods will be the final judge of what is or is not acceptable and will edit posts as well as issue warnings to the offending parties. Breaking this rule may result in immediate suspension from Clodtalk without warning!

6 - Threats against other members, hateful, and/or racist postings will not be tolerated!

7 - Language:
This is a place to discuss the R/C hobby, it's not a place to flame or talk down to others, we are all here to help each other and if you have nothing good to say then please do not post. Due to young viewers, Clodtalk employs the use of language filters. It is in direct violation to attempt to bypass these filters by using smilies, asterisks (*), or any other keystrokes or symbols to imply cussing or vulgarity. What is considered swearing is highly subjective, err to the side of caution and do not use profanity at all. The Admin/Mods will be final judge!

8 - Weapons:
Weapons discussion are acceptable only in the Off-Topic Chit-Chat area, and must only be discussing the weapon itself, or it's use in practice (translation NON-living targets). Any talk of using people, animals, or property as targets will not be tolerated and you WILL be suspended or banned at the discretion of the Admin/Mods . . . period!

Buying/selling weapons through this board is strictly prohibited.

9 - Membership:
Multiple accounts are not allowed, if we find out you have more than one account, you, along with all of your accounts will be banned, this includes previously banned members who create a new account. No questions asked and no warnings will be given.

10 - Signature lines:
Banners and images in signatures are not allowed! This is to maintain the fastest load times and the least amount of screen clutter possible. Signatures are limited to text only, total character count: 300, Number of lines: 4

11 - Avatars:
Personal Avatars are allowed to be uploaded to our forum. They may not be more than 130 pixels wide, and no taller than 400 pixels. Rule #4 applies here.

12 - Profile Information:
After you register and log into this forum, you may fill out your profile information. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information we deem inaccurate or vulgar will be removed.

13 - Buy/Sell/Trade (BST) Access:
The BST is a private forum for members in good standing only!
For access to the B/S/T private message (PM) an admin with your date of birth (DOB).
(You must be at least 18 years of age to use the BST)

14- The rules of the Buy/Sell/Trade (BST) section:
Discussions concerning buying/selling and trading personal items may be posted here and only here, no exceptions.

Use the BST at your own risk. It is your responsibility to know who you are dealing with, take the time to check the trader feedback area and get to know the trader before making deals. Clodtalk assumes no responsibility/liability for any deals that go bad.

Items you have for sale on ebay may be posted in the BST Section, but you must put eBay in the subject title. No link is required from the auction site, but it would be nice.

Any items you post for sale in the BST must actually be yours and in your possession. No selling for other people.

You may bump your BST threads once per week if your item(s) have not sold. Adding a post with "Still for sale/available" vs "bump/ttt/ect" would be nice. Abuse of thread bumps will result in a warning with possible thread deletion and/or BST suspension.

Keep your ads updated as necessary. Once an item sells, please change the title to "Sold". This site will automatically delete old and inactive ads.

Your e-mail must be valid! If we get a bounced back notice from the server indicating that your email is not valid, your BST privileges will be suspended for one month! Before reinstatement after that month your email must be valid!

General BST posting. Ads that don't follow these rules will be deleted, and repeat offenders will be warned and/or suspended from the BST.

a - Include for-sale (F/S), for-trade (F/T), or wanted in your thread title.

b - Include price(s) for all items in your ad.

c - Include pics of any items you are selling.

d - Include shipping information, such as whether the price of the item(s) includes shipping, whether you will ship to contiguous states only (lower 48 ), US only (all 50 states ), or internationally. If buyer pays shipping, please provide an approximate weight of the item(s) being sold and a zip code from where they will be shipped from so that the buyer can calculate shipping fees accordingly. Note to buyers - If you don't see this information, ask for it before you purchase the item(s). Sellers include at the very least the country that the item is being shipped from in your adds.

15 - Donations:
All donations are welcome! Your generosity is greatly appreciated, and 100% of your donation goes towards paying the monthly cost of our server.
