Official Notice on Behavior

Post by racer12306 » Mon Nov 16, 2009 8:01 pm

To All Forum Members:

Please let this post serve as official notice that member conduct is becoming out of line and this is unacceptable. We at 2GN.org strive to maintain an open community, and in recent times regardless of the kind of car you drive, that promotes open communication of opinions in a respectful manner. We strongly promote member opinions because it is important for people to feel welcome and that there will not be retribution for their thoughts.

With this said, we will be strongly promoting respectful conversation. This means that member's that choose to be blatantly disrespectful towards other members will receive vacations, length to be determined at the discretion of the Moderation staff. And if actions warrant, permanent vacations.

Like I said, we don't want people to feel like they can't express themselves. That is the absolute last thing that we want. The goal is respect. Rather than saying "your car is the biggest hunk of shit in the world, you destroyed that car," choose not to post or go with something that is better, such as explaining your opinion and maybe what you would have done differently or even something as simple as "Not my cup of tea." If someone chooses to start an argument, respectfully reply or don't reply at all. There is a report post button on every single post that is made. When this button is clicked an email is sent to every Moderator/Administrator on the staff, we will address the problem as soon as we can.

This site has turned into a great resource for people with 2nd generation Neons. We feel that it is more than just a site of Neon owners, it is a community of car lovers. This is very obvious in the number of members who move on from their Neon yet continue to browse the site, engage in conversation and help out members with problems. The site would not have got to it's current point without growth. A more respectful site will lead to more growth and a more educated member base.

To all of our new members, welcome to the forum. Search around, there is a lot of information here. We recently created a FAQ section that answers many questions that many new members have when they join. Check out that section here: FAQ Section

To all of our veteran members, thank you for staying around. Without your knowledge the site would not have grown from the little sprout it was just 5 years ago to the large community it is today.

Well, I'm afraid this post signifies the beginning of the end for TheRandom1. But I'm going to try to play by the rules... sort of...

I don't know if this is the right thread to be joking around in. Basically you're taking the message that Frank is trying to present and making it a Joke.

Or... We are demonstrating in this thread that it is possible to have a good time on this site and joke around without being a royal prick like you and I, Mox.

I approve of this thread. :thumbup: Well put, Frank. Although, as much as I would like to see people taking their chill pills, I don't believe many of the 'jerks' will pay attention to this.

I lurked around the other .org and I don't see what the big deal is. Seems to be an older crowd there, and even at that they're not bad IMO.

The crowd here has never been bad, but a few take things a little too personally...

No, Frank's message still stands (and I am in full agreement with it) regardless of my little comment.

Agreed well put. I do still troll this site occasionally and do give advice when ever asked. It is still one of my favorite car forums to visit. I try my best to be respectful and polite even when people are being stupid.

The scary thing is, that's probably the case. I would think the new people need this just as much as the vets.
