Forum Rules and our Mission Statement - - PLEASE READ!
« on: September 30, 2018, 04:48:13 PM »
After discussion with the rest of the staff, we felt that the following items should be posted here.

To promote the home machine shop hobby through the sharing of plans, projects, processes, techniques and other knowledge with people that have similar interests. We do this while encouraging everyone to be respectful of others, their tools and equipment, as well as their methods and their ideas.

Nobody likes rules, but a few simple ones are necessary. Using a little common sense goes a long way.
     1. Be honest and treat others with respect at all times; no bashing or flaming of members, non-members, or other forums.
     2. Spammers are not allowed to remain here as members.
     3. Hobby related commercial advertising is allowed but only in the advertising section.
     4. Please use reasonably clean language.
     5. Pornographic materials are not allowed. If it is too risqué, please avoid posting it. It is better to err on the side of caution.
     6. Please be respectful of copyrights; don't post copyrighted material here without permission of the author.

If you enter into dealings with other members or vendors that advertise here and things go sour, please do not bring your argument here. Machinists Gazette staff will not make any attempts to assist in resolving such disputes.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact a staff member for clarification.
