Exclamation Forum Rules

Please read the following forum rules.

In order to foster a healthy and enjoyable forum, we have established the following forum rules. The Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions will be posted soon.

If you continue to visit and post on this site, you are bound by the rules outlined below.

DAC Forum Rules

Welcome to DAC forums!

There is no charge for opening an account or using these forums. However, we do ask you to visit our sponsors as they help us keep this site up for you.

Our goal is to bring you an independent web site run by collectors. This site is not run by, owned by, or financed by a manufacturer, online store or other retail operation. This site is for collectors and is run with collectors in mind - we do not have a hidden agenda and we are not looking to sell you anything.

Your Membership is private. It is for you only and you may not share your username and password with anyone else. We reserve the right to revoke your membership without warning if you severely violate the below rules or in other ways severely hurt, threaten, or misuse DAC. Your membership incorporates our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. We are committed to your privacy.

Although we try very hard to keep the site and services up and running at all times, we make no guarantees. We can not warrant that the service will be uninterrupted or error free. We do encourage feedback so if you have an issue or would like to report a technical problem, please visit the DAC Chat forum or send us an email by clicking the Contact Us link at the bottom of the web page.

Please read the forum rules thoroughly before posting. Our forums are moderated so we can continue to bring you and the collector community top quality, accurate topics, in-depth discussions, and breaking news related to the hobby. .

The owners and moderators of DAC cannot review every message posted. The rules and guidelines have been designed to make your visit to DAC as enjoyable as possible. We promote a clean, healthy and respectful environment where members are not afraid to ask questions or engage in friendly and courteous discussions. If you believe that a post violates one of the rules, please bring it to our attention.

As a member of DAC, you are expected to review and comply with the following rules. Violating these rules may result in various sanctions, from the removal of your post to the suspension of your membership. The length of this suspension is determined by the Moderators and depends on the severity of the offense. Repeat offenders may be permanently banned.

Forum members are given the privilege to select custom user titles and signatures. User titles and signatures should not antagonize, provoke, slander, abuse or intimidate others. Profanity is generally not acceptable and must not appear in signatures or custom user titles. Using a custom user title or signature to impersonate a DA.C Team Member is also prohibited, and will result in immediate account suspension and/or banning from the site

From time to time, we may revise, update or change the terms of the rules. We will do our best to communicate any changes, but it remains the responsibility of members to keep up to date concerning the rules.


General Rules

We reserve the right to cancel your membership and forum username without justification if you violate the rules or cause harm in any way to DAC.

We reserve the right to delete, without explanation and entirely at our discretion, any post, thread or user for any or no reason.

Respect the opinions of others and choose your words wisely. Each user has their own point of view, and these views must be respected.

Word all criticism in a polite and constructive manner. Criticism which serves no purpose other than to incite or insult other DAC members will not be tolerated.

If a topic becomes a debate, you may debate the subject itself. Do not debate the credibility, motives, or intellect of other DAC members.

As this is an international website, messages must be written in English and must be easy to read.

Do not insult, flame, or otherwise provoke other users or incite trouble. Do not allow others to provoke you.

Photo threads are not to be used for model bashing. Another thread can be opened to show the shortfalls of the model and have healthy discussions on them. Photos need to be used with owner consent only. Threads/post will be removed if owner’s permissions have not been taken

Should a user antagonize, provoke, slander or intimidate you, DO NOT retaliate. You are expected to comply with the rules no matter what - and "He started it" is NOT an excuse.

Report abusive posts.

Post in the correct forum. Posts or threads may be moved to more appropriate forums without notice.

Default Re: Forum Rules

A new amendment to our rules:

As a member, you have the possibility to create a signature which will be shown every time you post something. Along with following our rules on posts, these signatures may not:
  • Contain any banners ads or other visual advertising for retailers or business. These include links to any commerical website. If you want to tell us about your favorite shops or retailers, you may add only text in your signature. If you are the owner of the shop or commercial internet seller please contact us for advertising rates. We occasionally make exceptions for shop owners (especially individuals on ebay), but we will not tolerate advertising on other signatures.
  • Contain visual or text advertising to other sites we consider competition. Our web site and your signature is not the place for you to be advertising for other die-cast collecting websites (free or not).
  • Be large or take up sizable parts of "real estate". Your signature may contain pictures of airplanes just as long as the size and text are reasonable. Reasonable is considered no larger than 250X250 pixels.

We reserve the right to remove any signature for whatever reason WITHOUT justification.
