allsentra.com is a place where it's okay to be yourself - be that harried, jovial, silly or sad - as long as you always act with respect for your fellow members. We promise that at allsentra.com you won't have to leave your personality at the door. We promise to bring passion to our work and appreciation for our members. We will listen to your suggestions and complaints, and try to incorporate your ideas in everything we do.
DON'T BE AFRAID TO POST
If you're new to our community, taking the step for the first time to post publicly to a message board can sometimes seem intimidating. Don't be afraid to jump into a discussion. We have a very supportive community that serves up heavy doses of support, encouragement and enthusiasm. We love meeting new people and making new friends.
FEEL FREE TO "LURK" AND LISTEN
While we hope that you'll become an active participant and join in our discussions, you're welcome, of course, to simply hang out silently until you feel more comfortable posting a message.
TAP INTO AN INCREDIBLE FOUNTAIN OF INFORMATION
Whether you're looking for answers to an engine concern, buying a new set of tires or ready to install a turbocharger, our members are here to help. Tell others about your experiences and they will tell you about theirs! allsentra.com is your place to get the answers you need and talk about the things that interest you most.
When newcomers arrive, say "hi" and welcome them to our growing community. Many of our community's "members" (regardless of age) are a wealth of knowledge and have much to share. Help new folks "learn the ropes" about how to find information and resources, save time, and how to get involved with our growing membership.
AGREE TO DISAGREE, RESPECTFULLY
We invite and encourage a healthy exchange of opinions; disagreements are okay. If you disagree with a member's post or opinion, by all means, challenge the opinion. However, any challenge must be given with a sense of respect and caring for the other person. The real objective of community is to understand each other, not to attack others and convince them that you're right. Name-calling, insults, "flaming" and attacks are not appropriate and will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree respectfully.
DON'T ATTACK EACH OTHER
Because this is so important, we'll say it again: Don't attack others. Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully ... without insult and personal attack. Harassing, offensive, vulgar, abusive, hateful or bashing communications -- especially those aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, color, religious views, national origin, or disability -- will not be permitted. BEFORE you post a message that is intended to embarrass, humiliate or harass another person or group of people, stop and THINK first! Harassing communications are considered to be those that may cause distress, embarrassment, unwanted attention or other discomfort. This includes posting of others private/perfornal information with the intent of harassing them. It will not be tolerated!
KEEP YOUR POSTS, AVATARS AND SIGNATURES CLEAN
The Main Forums of allsentra.com are a place for PG material only where explicit, obscene or vulgar gesters, language, GIFs, JPEGs or other graphic files are NOT appropriate. Message board titles, posts, avatars, and signatures in all forums that contain anything that is not considered PG material will not be tolerated and will be moved or deleted without notice! The enforcement and definition of PG is solely the responsibilty of the Administrators and Moderators. (see the "Off-Topic" forum section below for exceptions)
Off-Topic was created for members to layback and relax, within the guidelines of proper respect to fellow members, to enjoy themselves in a semi-private environment. The rules for Off-Topic in reference to language "within" threads are lifted. The rules for Off-Topic in reference to PG-13 type pictures (images) are that only tasteful modeling or posing type pictures are to be displayed. No "action" pictures or raunchy/disgusting pictures are allowed. The topics, language and pictures in Off-Topic may be considered offensive to some people. We therefore have a "Warning" displayed in the OT Forum's description text advising of this possibility. It is important for all members to understand the possibility that opening any posted message or reply in the Off-Topic forum may display potentially offensive and/or embarrassing images. Therefore, allsentra.com highly suggests that the Off-Topic forum not be viewed in public!
QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY
Posts should have some sort of redeeming quality such as information, entertainment or advice. Useless posts that waste server resources or do nothing for the community will be moved and/or pruned at the discretion of the administrative staff. Repeated posting of useless material or material that promotes the degredation of the community will lead to removal of you off-topic privledges and or total removal from the forum.
We are not striving for graduate level writing, but the ability to string a few words together to form a complete thought is definitely required. If you have a hard time typing out a full word without finding the need to abbreviate it with some cryptic form of internet variation,our other users will have a hard time understanding you and our search engine will have a hard time indexing your posts for posterity which hurts our community. We encourage participation in the forum and as such, we encourage the use of proper spelling, grammar and cohesive thought.
FINALLY, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT
allsentra.com reserves the right to remove any post that does not relate to the topic being discussed or is considered inappropriate on the board. In addition, allsentra.com reserves the right to organize message boards (or folders) in order to best serve the majority of our members. For example, narrow-interest or minimal activity topics may, at allsentra.com's discretion, be relocated to a more appropriate forum, or deleted entirely. allsentra.com also reserves the right to prohibit or delete messages that are thought to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members, or the rights of allsentra.com or others. With that said, allsentra.com does not have the practical ability to restrict conduct or communications that might violate allsentra.com's rules. Nor can we ensure prompt removal of offending message board posts. We also reserve the right to remove your allsentra.com membership should you violate its rules or should we deem necessary. Any decision to ban a member for abuse of any of these rules, or for whatever reason, will be made by the administrator team.
