READ SECTION No. 1!
1. General rules In this forum we use our real name. And that is final!
Everyone who registers must write their full name as the forum name, and state this if asked.
Registering an account without entering your full name may result in your account being rejected.
It is not allowed to discuss "war and peace and politics and such". The boundary of what is politics is of course changing, but party politics is definitely fy, (derogatory) mention of others on religious or ethnic grounds as well. We trust that people understand what falls under the ban, and the administrator reserves the right to censor posts without notice. If you work after such discussions, we recommend http://politiskforum.no.
There is a reporting function in the forum, if someone thinks the administrator is not following or you are dissatisfied with something.
If you are dissatisfied with something, send a PM to the administrator rather than start a discussion about the discussion on the forum.
If you are dissatisfied with the administrator, send a message directly to the board of IPMS Norway.
The forum is non-commercial. This means that the forum's users are free to brag uninhibitedly about the products and retailers they use, while retailers are not given the opportunity to advertise for themselves. The Marketplace / Advertisement function is therefore also primarily for purchases, sales, donations between private individuals, but retailers are given the opportunity to answer questions and announce news. All other sections are closed to commercial posts. (see section 2.1-3 for details)
Commercial players have been given their own places to share info with users, this is done in the sections "Dealers 'corner" and "Manufacturers' corner"
Posts that violate Norwegian law or encourage violations of Norwegian law will be removed without warning and users will simply be banned. In the event of a lot of noise in a thread, which either breaks the rules or the moderator is in doubt, the moderator can close the thread until he / she has the opportunity and time to look at this. Since most of us have a job next to the hobby, it is not always justifiable to spend allot of time on the forum. This applies especially to weekdays during the day, but also during holiday settlement. Each user is responsible for keeping up to date with the forum's rules.
2. Marketplace / Advertising function
Use of the forum's ad / buy / sell feature is available to all members of the forum. IPMS Norway is NOT responsible for what is sold. This is a place where you can sell/buy your own stuff to the members of the forum. All communication, payment and settlement will and can IPMS Norway have no part in. This is between seller and buyer! In case of abuse (ie selling goods or items that can not be directly linked to our hobby is not allowed) the ad will most likely be disabled. It is allowed to link the ad to e.g. finn.no or other similar well-known websites.
3. A little more information regarding administrator practices
The forum is divided into a number of sections / categories. Where your posts belong, we leave to the individual to judge, but the administrator reserves the right to move a topic, if they think it is placed incorrectly. The reference sections are e.g. only intended reference material, ie preferably pictures of the actual role models. Pictures of models - finished or in work - belong in the gallery. The administrator more or less follows everything. Even topics that do not interest the administrator.
The Administrator does not admit responsibility for any decrease in productivity at the construction table (or in any other context) as a result of extensive use of this forum.
The forum will at regular basis clean the member list and reserves the right to possibly delete/deactivate user accounts where there has been no activity (logged in) on the user in the last two (2) years.
As a registered forum member, courtesy and kindness are expected, so that the forum does not become a toxic sess pool that no one wants to participate in.
