    Default Site Rules of Conduct

    For the complete current and official rules, please see SRP rules of conduct - Straight Razor Place Wiki

    SRP is provided as a community for you to learn and share information about straight razors, wet shaving, and related equipment and accessories. We provide a wealth of information in our forums, library, gallery, and other areas of our site.

    We encourage you to share your thoughts and opinions openly and freely with other members within the context of our rules and traditions with the following caveat:
    Freedom of speech, within the context of our site, does not necessarily mean you are permitted to say whatever you want whenever you want however you want, without consequence. Your participation in our forums require that you follow our rules and you must agree to do so when you register. You may view a complete copy of those rules [here].
    Of specific importance is the following:
    1. You agree that you will not use the Forum to: post or otherwise make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable; [i.e., you agree to conduct yourself in a civil fashion]
    2. Straight Razor Place Forums may pre-screen Content, or refuse, revise or move any Content that is available via the Forum in its sole discretion. Straight Razor Place Forums shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the Terms or is otherwise objectionable, as determined in Straight Razor Place Forums's sole discretion. [i.e., Moderators and Admins have the right to take whatever action they deem necessary to maintain compliance with the rules, including editing your post, removing your post, and locking or removing your thread.]
    3. Straight Razor Place Forums reserves the right to terminate your Straight Razor Place Forums account for the Forum immediately upon written notice to you (including email) for any breach of the Terms. [i.e., you can be banned or terminated from membership at the Moderator/Admin's discretion for violation of the rules.]
    Although not specifically stated in the rules, the following conventions and traditions are to be followed here and you are expected to comply or face Moderator/Admin action:
    1. It is expected that you will post your questions and remarks in the correct topical forum. [i.e., you post about straight razors in the razor forum, about soaps in the Soap forum, etc.] and that posts you make to a thread will remain on-topic.
    2. An Off-Topic forum is provided for all other situations. While the OT forum is open to discuss anything you wish (within the limitations of our site rules, of course), we strongly urge that you refrain from starting threads on topics that traditionally become highly opinionated, such as politics, religion, sexual preferences, free speech, etc.
    3. It is your responsibility to maintain the decorum of any thread you start. If members in your thread are uncooperative in that regard, report their posts to a moderator.
    4. The moderators will extend little tolerance to rules violation, particularly in the areas of civility and respect.
    5. You must comply with the requests and/or directives of the moderators. Failure to do so may result in the revocation of your forum privileges (i.e. you will be banned) for a duration of 24-hours or more, depending upon the frequency and severity of your infraction(s).
    6. If you disagree with an action a moderator has taken specifically against you and/or one of your posts, contact the moderator off-line (i.e., via PM or email) and discuss the matter.
    7. As mentioned previously, this site is run by Administrators, Senior Moderators, and Moderators. Issues are not decided unilaterally, ever. A combination of Moderators, Senior Moderators, and Administrators are generally involved in every decision that is not specifically addressed herein. Issues addressed herein, (e.g. SPAM) have been assigned actions that were previously agreed upon by the aforementioned group.

    Additional Clarification of SPAM.

    According to rules agreed to when signing up for an account here you will not:

    post or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation, or in any way identify or provide a link to any source of products or services related to shaving except in those areas that are designated for such purpose

    This includes posting a new thread as a "review" of an item without any participation in this community. So one post wonders of a "great deal" found are not tolerated as they are viewed as SPAM.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    (this was already discussed before, but not yet added to the site rules)

    We had a discussion with on-admin-high, and we are going to ask people not to put banners in sig lines anymore.

    If you have a website and you want people to know this, just put the URL in your sig line, but not a banner.
    We cannot enforce this via the software, so we will contact people via PM whenever we encounter banners in sigs.

    SRP earns some money by paid advertisments through the banners, so that we can keep the site going.
    Since we chose only to have shaving related advertisments, the earnings aren't that big. If people can also post advertisments for free, then we run the risk of losing those earnings.
    We also don't want people posting just to give exposure to their banner.

    We haven't had any problems yet because generally, people do the right thing, but we want to prevent problems from happening as more and more people find their way to this place. Since several of our paying advertisers are also members here, losing earnings if paying is optional is a real risk.

    Due to some recent issues, we've had to formalize our stance on sig lines.
    We've tried to keep it short and simple:

    Free expression: ok
    Non-advertisement links: ok
    Shaving Advertistment (Tasteful): ok, as long as the advertising is for your own
    Other advertisement links: not ok

    And for the rest the default site rules apply, so no spam, no abusive language, etc etc.
    We don't want to make it too specific. If in doubt, then just ask a mod.

    EDIT 23FEB2009: Shaving advertisement is only allowed for your own business or activity. Advertising for other members is not allowed.

    All initiatives like giveaways, contests, group buys, etc... are either organized by us (SRP staff) or in cooperation with us, according to our rules and decisions. We don't mind people giving away a razor or a brush, or other minor stuff. As soon as anything needs organizing or becomes more valuable, it needs our approval or it won't happen.

    See this thread for more details and the discussion:

    Default New Guidelines for the Classifieds Section.

    As some of you may be aware, the moderator team has been working on a revamp of the current SRP guidelines. We are doing this in order to get all of the guidelines in one location and to make them easier to understand and safer for the community as a whole. At this time we have finished up the new guidelines for the classifieds section and are posting them here for everyone to familiarize yourselves with. Please take a few minutes to read these over and get a grasp of them. We appreciate all of your understanding as we work to get all the new guidelines in place and work out any bugs. All current ads may stay in the classifieds without changes, but all new ads must comply with the new classifieds guidelines.

    Also at this time we would like to announce that Old_School has agreed to moderate the classifieds in order to help the new changes go more smoothly. So everyone welcome him and let's work to make these changes something we can all embrace and an improvement for the community as a whole.

    The new guidelines for the SRP classifieds:

    The purpose of the classifieds section is to provide a place for members to occasionally buy, sell or trade goods and/or services of interest to others. The classifieds section is the sole property of SRP, and as such, SRP reserves the right to delete, remove or request the editing of any ad that is deemed to not be in the best interest of the site or its members. Neither SRP nor members of its management accept any responsibility or liability for transactions that go bad or are not as advertised. All problems with transactions should be worked out between the members involved. The following rules are in place to govern this section:

    1. Members wishing to post a 'For Sale'(FS) or 'For Trade'(WTT) or a 'Wanted to Buy (WTB) ad must have a minimum of three (3) months of membership and no less than 100 posts or six (6) months of membership and no fewer than 50 posts. Exceptions to this rule may be made by the super moderator team.

    2. Any eligible member may advertise up to five 'For Sale' ads at any given time. Sold ads and member services ads do not count toward the total. All items listed for sale must be listed in separate 'For Sale' ads unless the items are identical or being sold bundled together as a group for one total price.

    3. All photos of items should be of the actual item and not from stock. All photos should be clear and show enough information for a clear opinion to be formed. E.g. the edge of the razor, the spine to show hone wear etc.

    4. Deleting an ad and re-posting it for the purpose of removing comments or to bump it back to the first page is not permitted and could lead to disciplinary action. (All ads get some time on the front page of the classifieds under the random ads section to the left of the screen.) Comments are expected to be gentlemanly and forum appropriate.

    5. All for sale ads must have a single desired price per item in the ad. Best offer only ads or any form of auction is prohibited.

    6. Price discussion regarding classified ads is prohibited in open comments anywhere on the site. This discussion needs to take place via personal message or email between the concerned persons.

    7. A vendor is defined as anyone operating a storefront (digital or brick and mortar) and or posting in the vendors section. The listing of services that vendors provide is permitted in the appropriate area of the classifieds.

    8. For sale ads that make use of the 'Buy It Now' function in the classifieds must not be listed on any other site that requires an obligatory sale (such as popular auction sites). The intention of this rule is to avoid situations where two buyers send money for a single product. Posting a for sale item on multiple sites that do not obligate a sale is acceptable, but the 'Buy It Now' function should not be used.

    Thanks Doc, and Old School. The rules seem fair.

    Honestly, since I've only purchased from the Classified section I've never really examined the rules for setting an item up for sale. However, I've been contemplating selling some hones so it's good to know the rules as they now stand.

    Thanks for helping to make this not only a great forum to find and pass on information, but also a safe place to buy and sell on occasion without having to be overly concerned about getting scalped (unlike the bay).
