Ohne Regeln geht es nicht!
Diese Binsenweisheit mag nicht bei jedem auf Gegenliebe stoßen, aber solche Regeln und Hinweise sind die Voraussetzung, damit hier alle gut miteinander auskommen.
In diesem Sinne steht die Eigenverantwortung für die Beiträge an erster Stelle, aber verbunden mit der Pflicht, die Rechte eines anderen dadurch nicht zu verletzen.

Usage Rules for the RC-Network Platform
We can't do it without rules!
This old wisdom may not always be loved, but such rules are the prerequisite to ensure that everyone gets along well here.
This being said, own responsibility for contributions is of the utmost importance.
So is the obligation not to violate others' rights.
|1.1||We ask all visitors and members of our platform to discuss on a factual level and to choose their words appropriately.|
Insults, libel or slander are not tolerated. Privacy must be respected.
This includes suggestions that criminalise third parties or put them in a corresponding context! Emoticons might help to prevent misunderstandings from occurring in some cases.
|1.2||In the subject-related areas, only discussions on the subjects of model construction and model sports are desired.|
Please stay on topic! It is possible to slip off topic. In this case, please start a new thread in the corresponding subforum and continue your discussion there.
|1.3||We forbid posting of racist, pornographic, inhuman, violence-glorifying or dishonouring contributions. Contributions of this kind will be edited or deleted! The same applies to contributions that violate applicable laws or that call to violate laws directly or indirectly or that play down such violations.|
|1.4||Do not place contributions on the same subjects in different sections or threads several times (spam)!|
Many individual contributions in a short time are not desired.
|1.5||Contributions with the purpose of impairing the market opportunities of specific products or providers ("manufacturer mobbing") or improving these ("manufacturer pushing") are not desired. This also includes individual general statements like "products by company … are not recommended!" or "all models from … are great!"|
We also do not desire contributions for the purpose of enforcing the interests of individuals against a provider.
Factual criticism "My model from company xy had the following faults at delivery:..." requires from case to case that the provider has been given sufficient opportunity to remove defects before.
These processes must be traceable, i.e. we may demand that the author of the contribution submit evidence of the accuracy of his claims if required.
|1.6||Please do not place any obtrusive references to your own website or private sales in forum contributions.|
News on your private website belong in the "Private pages" instead of a specialist section.
Sensational advertising should not go in the "Private pages" either.
|1.7||In your signature, you may place a text link for unobtrusive reference to other websites and maintain a personal motto.|
Text design elements (< =/*+ #\ > [ ] etc.), all caps and text formatting to emphasize the signature are not permitted. The same applies to supplementary texts that serve the same purpose ("The best website").
The signature length is limited to 240 characters.
Links to associations with party-political backgrounds are not permitted.
Images, smileys and banners in the signature are not permitted. Association members, moderators, administrators and advertising partners are exempt from this rule.
|1.8||Copyright must be observed. Offers, agreements or requests that include the reproduction of software or parts of magazines (reports) are not permitted. This also applies to freely available or free of charge software or magazines as well as construction plans, building instructions and parts of them. Images must only be uploaded to RC-Network when the presentation of the image in the scope of the online platform of RC-Network does not violate any copyright or other third-party rights.|
|1.9||The author is able to change his contribution for 30 minutes after submission.|
Editing of a change made by the moderator is not permitted.
|1.10||We forbid the publication of emails or personal messages from others without their express consent. This must be documented from case to case.|
The publication of personal data of individuals, such as address, phone number and email address, by third parties is not permitted without the express consent of the parties involved.
This also applies if the data are available in publicly accessible directories or databases such as the phone book or search engines.
This shall expressly not include the addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of companies and other commercial entities.
|1.11||Discussions on the usage conditions, moderation or rules of our other online platforms are not desired. RC-Network Modellsport e.V. determines the rules for using the platform.|
|1.12||RC-Network uses a warning system to simplify moderation and documentation.|
Warnings are assigned to a points catalogue. Depending on the importance of the violation of the rule, a warning comes with zero, one or several points that will remain effective for a certain period. If a user collects a certain number of points during this time, this will automatically lead to a temporary writing block in the forum of RC-Network. In severe cases, the forum management will impose an extended or unlimited block.
|1.13||The username can not be changed by the user after successful registration.|
|1.14||Names of public persons or trade marks may not be used as username. Markups, URLs or higlighting features are not allowed.|
|1.15||In case of required changes of the username please contact the registration. Change requests need a justification.|
|1.16||Opening a new account for a change of name or as a secondary or multiple account is not permitted.|
|2.||Usage Rules for Companies, such as Vendors and Manufacturers|
|2.1||Answers from companies, vendors and manufacturers are welcome at all times! We consider these contributions an important part of the discussion to answer questions, clear up issues and react to suggestions and criticism. They are in the end customer service..|
|2.2||However, we expressly ask not to post any advertisements! If users ask about products from your range, you may, of course, post the corresponding short information in the forum.|
|2.3||If there is any discussion about products you sell, you may, of course, answer directly. We offer the supplementary option of sending a statement to the relevant moderator by email. We will publish this statement in the forum.|
|2.4||If your products or services are presented incorrectly or inaccurately, or if you believe that there is non-factual discussion about your products, you may post a counter-statement.|
|2.5||When making your contributions, observe the competition relationship in which you may be with other companies. Your statements on the products of other companies may lead to considerable legal and financial consequences (law against unfair competition)!|
|2.6||As advertising partner of RC-Network, you are able to maintain a banner in your signature. However, we politely ask that you to limit this banner in size to 300 x 40 pixels and that you do not animate it.|
|3.||Usage Rules for the "Börse"|
|RC-Network.de offers the option of publishing classified ads.|
RC-Network assumes no responsibility for processing of the deal between purchaser and seller.
To keep the "Börse" up to date, an automatic routine that regularly archives old threads is activated. Completed offers and search requests should be closed by the starter of the thread to keep the "Börse" well structured.
Therefore in the Navigation-Bar, at the top of your posting, click on “Moderation”, select “Thema schließen” and then click the button labeled “weiter”.
Offers and search requests in which the last contribution is older than three months will be moved to the archive, offers and search requests that have already been moved to the archive but are still up to date may be posted anew after 3 months. The period of 3 months starts with the last contribution (e.g. price update). All subjects and contributions that do not comply with the following rules will be deleted uncommented.
|3.1||Every ad must only offer or look for one item or set.|
|3.2||Sales in the name of others are not permitted. The offeror must be owner of the offered item.|
|3.3||The ad must describe the item or set and its condition clearly and designate the price (in case of a set the total price), the shipping method and shipping costs. Purchasing requests must be phrased just as clearly.|
|3.4||Commercial ads are not permitted.|
|3.5||Multiple posting of offers and searches, also in different areas, is not permitted.|
|3.6||Links or references to other sales platforms or sales are not permitted.|
Yours, the RC-Network Modellsport e.V.
