Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Off The Jacks. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Board Rules

    1. Board Introduction

      We realize that most people don't take the time to read the rules,
      so to reiterate the need to do this please read the rules at least once maybe twice if need be.


      These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Off The Jacks. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

      • We will start out with the overall concept. Off The Jacks is a Semi Private Social Community. We do however use and encourage promoting and sharing to your friends on these big communities from here. The real power of exposure is in the smaller targeted social networks such as this. More on this in the Q & A forum on the board here.

        Ask great questions to get great answers!


        Many of your questions may already have answers on the FAQ Page.

        We are not posting any of this as a threat we are pretty easy going here and will work with you if you work with us.

    2. Before you post or comment
      • Rule number one Have Fun!

        You must fill out your profile in its entirety including an avatar or picture.
        Only one email address or account per member

        Stop into the Lounge and introduce yourself maybe say hi to people you know or want to get to know. Hence “Social”!

        No flaming, It's cool to disagree with someone so address a disagreement or point of view by presenting your case intelligently, and professionally. It's cool to be sarcastic and use words that are just a little off color, we really are sick of the fake nicey nice politically correct crap. Just remember some people just won't get it so you may have to spell out in depth your intent. We are real people lets live life like real people. This is just a note to be yourself, share your true thoughts. You can’t please everyone although some try, you really are no one if you don’t have haters, if you do, you know you are getting somewhere.

        It's not cool to spam. If you don't know what spam is, we will tell you right now.

        • Self-promotion, posting links with crap content

          Taking a thread off topic to self-promote (hijacking a thread)

          Posting emails or URL in the post and/or title


        If you come across a post that you think is spam or questionable please feel free to report it to the Moderators so they may address the issue.
        To report a post or comment it is easy!

        We reserve the right without notice to make decisions, to delete, or edit posts
        (edit if you’re lucky)! So pretty much we make up rules as we go. If your uncool and continue to be uncool, and we don't have a rule for your uncoolness, we can assure you that we will make one. So be cool!

    3. No ads except in the advertising forum “The Store”.

      No multiple ad posts with the same project or business.
      It is actually much more effective and powerful to use the same thread and add to it. Hint: When you add a reply to a thread the thread will appear on the top of the forum.

      Posting the same ad in every forum is also considered spam and will be deleted
      No urls, emails or inappropriate thread titles.

      No Posting personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.) Use a Private Message for this.

      You can bump your post every 3 days. Don't worry, if your try to bump early the board will tell you.

      • This is all common sense

        No sales or promotion of certain weapons, such as firearms, ammunition, balisongs, butterfly knives, and brass knuckles.

        No beer or hard alcohol, tobacco or tobacco-related products.

        No prescription, nonprescription, or illegal drugs.

        No links to inappropriate sites.

        No porn or drug links allowed anywhere including sig-lines.

        No violence, racial intolerance, or advocate against any individual, group, or organization.

        No Hacking / cracking content.

        No Illicit drugs and drug paraphernalia, Pornography, adult, or mature content.

        No other content that promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal or moral rights of others.

        No products that are replicas or imitations of designer goods.


      Bumping your own ad is allowed after 3 days, add something great to it when you do bump.

      Any forum containing prohibited material WILL BE DELETED WITHOUT NOTICE OR QUESTION!

      Enjoy yourself and remember you only get to keep what you give away.

      If you have any problems make a post in the questions forum, or PM us if it's personal.

      Please make yourself at home and have fun!

      Again we reserve the right without notice to make decisions, to delete, or edit posts (edit if you’re lucky)! So pretty much we make up rules as we go. If your uncool and continue to be uncool, and we don't have a rule for your uncoolness, we can assure you that we will make one. So be cool!

    4. General rules to post images by.

      First and most important is to only use images that you personally own.

      Copyright laws are getting very strict so you are solely responsible for any damages that are incurred by posting images that violate these laws.

      • No nudity and only family friendly pictures.

        Images should be of auto related things and posted with text talking about the image.

        Images with no details may be deleted.


      Images are to be sized.

      • The maximum size of your image can be 800x1500 pixels.
        The preferred format for images is .jepg or .jpg to keep the file size at a minimum, 500 kb is the max file size.
        An image 400 or 450 pixels wide is normally a great size.
