Welcome to The O-Forum! Read this first! Then, feel free to introduce yourself here! If you need immediate, real-time support for the Oxebridge ISO 9001 or AS9100 Template Kits, click here to join our Slack chat channel.
The O-Forum is a safe place for you to come and visit and pet warm puppies. Let’s keep it that way. Here are the rules.
No hate speech. If you don’t know what that is, you probably shouldn’t post here. Anything racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise intolerant isn’t tolerated. Ironic, right?
No trading in illegal files, pirated materials, copyrighted materials. Don’t use this site to swap documents or files illegally. That includes the PM system. ISO’s lawyers are watching this site like hungry hawks hovering over a nest of tiny baby mice.
No defamation. Opinions are fine, but if you state falsehoods as fact, for the purposes of causing harm, you will probably get sued. Let’s not go there.
No flame Wars. When discussions turn into flame wars, the moderation will increase. This may mean entire sets of posts disappear, in order to re-rail the conversation back on track.
No trolling. You know what it is, don’t assume we’re dumb. Trolls will be moderated.
Privacy. This site is as private as it can be, which nowadays isn’t saying much. Your information may be released in response to a court order, so behave. Otherwise, it won’t be used in any manner other than for moderation and operation of the forum. Please don’t post contact information in your profile that you would not want the world to have. Or the NSA. Whatever.
Spam vs. Promotion. You can promote your services or products in the appropriate forum, but not in conversations or any manner that is off-topic. Spam posts will be deleted, and frequent offenders may be warned or banned. Put your promotions in the right forums, and we should be fine.
Profanity. Go wild. If it gets out of hand, we may revisit this. Forums that panic over profanity spend more time moderating words than they do providing a service. That’s bullshit.
Profiles. Intentionally false profiles will be deleted. Using someone else’s photo isn’t allowed. Spam accounts will be deleted without notification.
Warning. Suspensions, Bans. Depending on the violation, users may be warned, suspended or banned. Every forum does it. You know the drill.
The Coffee Break Forum. That’s the place to go talk about off-topic stuff, like Game of Thrones or Doctor Who or how Doctor Who should be in Game of Thrones. For now we are prohibiting anything about politics, religion or sex. Trust me, that’s going to make it easier on everyone. It also means that there’s almost nothing left to talk about, so that should reduce our server load. Win win.
REPORT BAD BEHAVIOR. If you see a post that breaks the rules, or breaks a rule we didn’t think of, report it to a moderator. We will look into it ASAP, but be aware that “ASAP” may mean after our hangover wears off, and it may not mean immediately.
