Respect Other Members:
Please respect other member's comments and feelings. SixthSphere is a tight community of Saturn owners. There is no reason to bring anyone down. Those "rice this" and "rice that" insults commonly seen on some other Saturn sites can stay over there. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but please keep it mature. If you find that is too much to ask, do not expect your account to remain activated. Personal attacks toward other members and other websites will be strictly prohibited on SixthSphere.
Previously Covered/Discussed Topics:
Welcome to SixthSphere.com
We hope that you learn a lot from being a member of our website. We appreciate members who are willing to put in the effort to learn on their own time rather than at the expense of other members' time and willing to share their real experiences rather than what they "heard".
Posting In The Correct Forums:
Make sure that you are posting in the correct forum for your topic. If the topic could go in multiple forums, please pick the one forum that best fits (i.e. try to avoid double posting). Some forums will have guidelines that popup in the post box describing the forum's purpose. Please read those BEFORE posting to ensure that you are in the right forum.
Cross posting will not be tolerated on SixthSphere. A definition of cross posting is; posting the same thread, or a link to the original thread, in more than one forum. This will result in a warning and/or temporary ban.
PLEASE make the subject of your new thread actually mean something and to describe the thread's content for people searching the database. Your thread will be added to the searchable database so that it can help future members with the same problem.
We don't want to see topics like:
- "HEEELLPPPP!" (<<== What do you need help with?)
- "Question" (<<== What's the question)
- "For Sale" (<<== What's for sale?)
- "Hey Joe Schmo" (<<== Send him a private message)
- "Problem.." (<<== whats the problem?)
- "Tires" (<<== what about tires?)
If we see a thread with a subject like these, it will get locked or deleted because the topics used are unsearchable. So please follow this super easy request.
Bottom line, if we can't tell what forum and what you want to discuss from just the title, the topic subject is wrong.
When it comes to the Buy/Sell/Trade Forum, please be as specific as possible in your title. Using two or three simple letters at the beginning, such as “FS”, “WTB” or “WTT” simplifies life for everyone. We have to know if your items are for sale, or you want to buy those items.
Also, please be courteous and keep swearing out of your Subject line and do not write all in CAPS... there's no need for it.
One more thing. There is no need to put "56k beware" or similar things in your subject just because the post contains a bunch of pictures.
Keep it fair to all members and do not needlessly "bump" or "ttt" a topic. Chances are very good that if someone knew the answer or wanted to buy something, they would most definitely post a reply.
We know that you want your questions answered or parts sold but with that said, EVERYONE wants their questions answered and parts sold. So again, keep it fair for everyone here.
IF A THREAD IS BLATANTLY "BUMPED," WITHIN 7 DAYS IT WILL BE DELETED WITHOUT WARNING.
Examples of what is NOT allowed:
- "c'mon guys i really need help doesn't anyone know?"
- "no one wants to buy this?"
- "me too"
- "still available"
- "pm sent" (They already KNOW!)
- "pm replied" (So do the person you're replying to!)
- "dibs" or similar claims (it's yours once you pay for it!)
Basically, if you add nothing new to the thread but just want it placed on the front page for more people to see, it's a bump.
Also realize that this medium, Message Boards, is not "Operators are standing by".... you can't always get an immediate response. Be patient.
If you legitimately need to add information to a thread you recently posted to, by all means use the [ Edit ] link available on your previous post. You can then make whatever additions/corrections you need, and even choose a reason for the edit to be displayed.
Kill Stories/Street Racing/Car vs. Car Threads:
These types of threads are not accepted here at SS for the following reasons:
- They are unproductive and present no benefit to the site
- They lead to flaming, arguing, and childish nonsense
- They are a haven for spreading bad tech misinformation
- They often condone illegal activity
Any threads conforming to these subjects will be deleted.
All off topic posts MUST be made in the off topic section.
SixthSphere has ONE off topic section, if your thread/post has NOTHING to do with with tech or Saturn in general, then it belongs in the OT section. We will not tolerate b.s. in any tech sections period, people who choose to do so will be warned or banned at the moderator/administrator discretion.
Off Topic is just that but SixthSphere will not allow any type of pornographic or adult material (or links to said material), there is just no need for it. The interent is readily available with many places for this type of activity, so take it elsewhere. If it’s something you could not post at work or with your kids or parents sitting next to you, then it does not belong on this site.
New Members Buying/Selling On SixthSphere:
Sorry, but brand new members are on probation in terms of posting items for sale on our site for a short period. Once you become involved in the SixthSphere community as an active long-term member and positively contribute, you will be able to sell things to other members. We have had too many issues with fly by night people attempting to scam our members or people who just join in order to sell their parts without contributing anything to the forums in terms of helpful discussions. It goes against what we want to create here: a community atmosphere of grassroots, mature, grounded enthusiasts sharing ideas & helpful knowledge to improve their plastic.
Buy/Sell/Trade Forum Etiquette:
Recently, some members have begun to "hijack" for sale threads with nasty comments, expressing no interest to the sale. If you're not interested in the sale, LEAVE THE THREAD ALONE! Such posts will be deleted or further action will be taken. Additionally, members should not post their items for sale in someone else's buy/sell/trade thread. These posts will be removed.
And please, if you have pictures and a price in mind, then for your own sake, POST THEM..... there's no need to have "make me offers" (post what you are looking for!) or "email me for pics" (just post them already!).... If you don't take the effort to sell what you have to sell, then there isn't any reason to keep your post up..... help others help you.
If you don't think the price is right, you can always try to negotiate with the seller via PM, or just move on. Also, if you are replying just to say something negative about the seller or the item they are selling, don't bother.
FAILURE TO SHOW EFFORT (no pictures, no prices, "email me for details", broken links) on a For Sale post will probably lead to removal... Please, take the 5 mins of effort to make a valid, informative classified post.
Buy/Sell/Trade Forum Restrictions:
Posts in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum are restricted to normal quantity sales by active members selling their own parts. Active members constitute those members who have more than 30 days and more than 25 (constructive) posts on SixthSphere.
The Buy/Sell/Trade Forum is a privilege. In order to use the forum it is expected that you are to contribute elsewhere to the site as well.
When searching the Buy/Sell/Trade forum, please keep in mind the dates on each thread. If the thread is over 6months old, chances are the person sold (or bought in a wtb thread) the item already. In this case it is best to PM the OP rather than reviving an old thread.
Text Etiquette: Communicate Like An Adult:
In a new effort to keep SixthSphere an efficient and informative website, we request making mature posts. The use of slang language will be grounds for deletion of the offending thread (or whatever action the moderator takes at his/her discretion). Also, please break up your posts in coherent sentences so others trying to help can clearly understand what you are asking (isn't that the whole point of posting?)
Everybody that is old enough to own and drive a car has enough education to communicate thoughts and ideas like a human being.
Typing like this: “1’m teh nUmb4 wun 5tuNNa” is not tolerated. Typing like this: “i have a car and i want to trick it out what should i do should i get a intake or should i get a nos” is not tolerated either.
Slang/shortcuts and incomplete sentences make searches more difficult, are immature, and very hard to read.
- Instead of typing "n-e-1", take the 2 extra seconds to type "anyone", "because" instead of "coz" or "cuz"
- Do not spell "what" like "wat", boy like "boi", or "my" like "muh"
- Just in general, communicate like an adult and you'll be treated like an adult (again, isn't that a valid goal of posting?)
Please avoid typing in ALL CAPS, or it will appear that you are shouting. It also makes posts easier to read.
Lastly, if making a lengthy post, it helps to use complete sentences and paragraphs. Longer posts are much easier to read if they are broken up into logical paragraphs and sections.
We understand that no one is the perfect typist in the world, but PLEASE, make an attempt to communicate as clearly as possible, it makes it so much easier for others to help you.
We're not asking you to Spell and Grammar check every time, but at least make your best attempt to speak plainly and clearly, the "slang" doesn't satisfy that request and if you insist on typing like that, your account will be removed.
Understand That You Are A GUEST On This Website:
SixthSphere.com is a privately owned and operated website and the site rules in place *must* be adhered to while on this website.
Members are limited to ONE username on SixthSphere, creating extra usernames will result in deletion of accounts.
The staff and contributing members of this site work very hard to keep this site informative and free of charge for all, so please, all we ask in return is respecting our house rules while here at SixthSphere.
If all this is really too much for you to take time to read, understand, respect, and/or follow, then we are afraid you have your web browser pointed at the wrong website.
Constructive Contributions To Threads:
During the initial probation period where new members have to reach 25 posts or 30 days to access the B/S/T section of SixthSphere, all posts must be constructive in nature. Posting replys such as but not limited to;
- “nice ride”
- “great work”
- “that sucks hope you work it out”
- “that’s just like my car”
Posts such as this will be removed by the staff and if need be, your post count reset, a warning given or a temporary/permament ban issued at the discretion of the SixthSphere staff.
If you have questions, feel free to PM any moderator of the site.
Unless you are 100% positive the information you are posting is correct, either research it first or don't post. We strive here at SixthSphere to provide only accurate and legitimate information.
SixthSphere Administrators and Moderators reserve the right to edit any and all content of the forums at anytime.
The owners of sixthsphere.com - Saturn Enthusiasts Forum and Community reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any content item for any reason.
