Forum Rules

The Golf Simulator Forum Rules

Golf is a game about a sport which prides itself on challenge, sportsmanship, and respect. It is our aim to create a community that fosters respectful discussion that is free from harassment, name-calling, derogatory remarks, or otherwise unnecessarily negative comments of any kind, be they directed at hardware manufacturers, software developers, other forum members, or anyone else.

When providing feedback, posting information, or discussing a simulation product, whether it’s negative or positive, please make sure you are being relevant, constructive and polite. Manufacturers take feedback from all kinds of sources into account, even though they may not have the time to respond to every post or question.

General Rules

Do not do any of the following:
  • Flame or insult other members
  • Bypass any filters
  • Abuse or encourage abuse of the Reputation, or Post Reporting Systems
  • Post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.)
  • Bump threads
  • Derail a thread's topic
  • Post links to phishing sites
  • Post spam or Re-post Closed, Modified, Deleted Content
  • Repetitively post in the incorrect forum
  • Double posting
  • Openly argue with a moderator
Off-Limit Topics/Replies

Do not post any topics/replies containing the following:
  • Porn, inappropriate or offensive content, warez or leaked content or anything else not safe for work
  • Any discussion of piracy will result in a permanent ban from the forum
  • Cheating, hacking, game exploits
  • Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
  • Posted copyright material
  • Redirects to other forums and groups
  • Soliciting, begging, auctioning, raffling, selling, advertising, referrals
  • Racism, discrimination
  • Abusive language, including swearing
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • False or misleading information
  • Religious, political, and other “prone to huge arguments” threads
  • Simulator software comparisons
No trolling these forums are allowed. Do not intentionally post controversial or contrary messages to invoke other members of the community. This will result in an immediate ban.

Bashing (ranting against) companies on is not permitted. Try to resolve the issue with the company directly. Ranting on a forum to 'get even' or to 'force a quick resolution' is not the way to handle things.

If you see a person breaking the rules, take advantage of the Flag button to report a post or simply ignore the offensive post, thread, or review.

The forums will be monitored by the Golf Simulator Forum administrators and moderators and determinations as to the inappropriate nature of posts, as well as subsequent actions, will be made solely by the forum administrators and moderators and at their discretion. Threatening, disrespectful behavior or becoming belligerent or overly aggressive with administrators, moderators or any member of the forum may result in an immediate and permanent ban from the forums.

Please note that administrators and moderators reserve the right to change, edit, delete, move and/or merge any content at any time if they feel it is inappropriate, abusive, off-limit, off-topic, in violation of the forum rules or incorrectly categorized.

In the most simple terms, our aim is to create a community that is a fun place to go to talk about Golf Simulators, without worrying about undue negativity. We appreciate passion, as well as different viewpoints, and we hope to see both in our forums. But each of these ideals can be served without hostility. So, like the sport of golf, we will expect courtesy and respect.

Thank you,
Golf Simulator Forum
