    Forum Rules and Regulations

    General Forum Rules

    Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Members are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting.

    Posts must be of legal content and do not break any laws such as copyright infringement.

    Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will result in being banned. Typing in all CAPS is considered to be shouting and is not allowed.

    Members should remember this board is aimed at a prop builder and Halloween/Horror audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated.

    Staff will not delete posts from the forum unless absolutely necessary. If your post is deleted, you will be notified unless it is of an unsolicited (e.g. spam) or highly offensive nature. If you find your post was deleted without notification, please contact the admin.

    Please keep the content of your posts, avatars and blinkies respectable. Nothing naughty. MonsterGuts Forum is a free-speech environment and we are not liable for the content of the posts by the users. We will do everything we can to ensure that this site is run with integrity and honesty but we are not held responsible for how others exercise their free speech.

    Do not hot link graphics from other websites that you do not own or have permission from. If you need to post a photo, please use a third party host such as Photobucket or TinyPic which allow hot linking.

    You may not promote other online communities or competing businesses. We welcome you to share your “finds” but ask that you refrain from promoting companies that compete with us….ie, wiper motors, power supplies, pneumatics, controllers and visual fx….because, you know we are Monster Guts

    Members may not post threads or replies with keywords used for SEO or search engine optimization.

    Spamming is not permitted and will incur an immediate ban.

    Please do not cross post threads. Post your thread once in the appropriate forum.

    Please keep the content of your posts, avatars and blinkies respectable. Nothing naughty.

    All posts and activities are subject to monitoring by admin and moderators. We reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

    We reserve the right to ban any member who acts in a threatening manner to another member or admin - i.e. aggressive, blackmail, abusive, etc. It simply will not be tolerated.

    The admins and moderators will do their best to remove all objectionable posts off this forum. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of Monster Guts, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin), will be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.* By posting, you are granting permission to us to publish your post to our forum permanently.*
    Any individual or company that threatens the forum or it's owners with legal action or any other way may lead to account termination and company name/domain being blocked in our forum. This is for our protection.


    Avatars may be set up through your profile settings.

    Please make sure that your avatar is no larger than 80 px high or wide. It is preferable that you host your avatars with your own photo host site (i.e. photobucket, tinypic, etc.) to help keep our bandwidth costs down.
