    2021 Sniper’s Hide Forum Rules
    Welcome to Sniper’s Hide 2021, a site for the serious tactical marksman; this community gathers together like-minded individuals with a love for precision rifles, mainly of the tactical variety.

    The Members Make the Community
    In order to keep these forums enjoyable and interesting for all of our users, we ask simply that you follow these minimal rules. By participating in the Sniper’s Hide Forums, you are consenting to these rules and violators may be warned, suspended from posting, or banned from the forums at the sole discretion of the Sniper’s Hide Moderators .

    At Sniper's Hide, we consider this the first warning and enforcement may come with no second warning.

    1. Exercise common sense and be considerate toward your fellow users. The diversity of opinion and intelligent civil discourse is encouraged; by the same token, Personal attacks, rudeness, flaming, baiting, insults to others, or arguments will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Any member who threatens anyone on the forum, via private message, instant messengers, email, or social media will be banned immediately without notice.
    2. Inappropriate content will be removed. Do not post any messages that are hateful, threatening, or otherwise in violation of any laws.
    3. Please use good judgment when choosing usernames, avatars, or images to post, and do not attempt to bypass the word filter.
    4. Hate speech against another is not tolerated, meaning any inappropriate threats against one's religion, sex, race, or political affiliations will be grounds for removal. If we find both parties are at fault due to trolling or baiting, both members will be removed.
    5. Signature Images will be no larger than 468x60 in size. Please be sure when using avatars and signature images to remember others on this board are watching. Distasteful images may be removed.
    6. Enforcement of the Rules may happen without warning. If your post is edited, deleted or modified by a Moderator you may inquire to the admin if the reason is not completely clear. Do this by private messaging Lowlight. If you see a post that is in violation of any of these rules please use the "notify" link at the bottom of the post to alert the moderators.
    7. Forum "Suicide" posts as a means of protest against these rules are frowned upon and may result in your removal from the site.

    Posts
    1. Do not post off-topic. Please keep your comments consistent with the subject and purpose of the conversation thread. Deliberate disruption, such as consistent off-topic commentary, will not be tolerated.
    2. Register using only one username and do not flood the board with posts that are off-topic. These actions will be considered a denial-of-service attack on the forums and will result in your being banned.
    3. Do not post the same topic in more than one forum. Pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure, put it in the Bear Pit, say you were not sure where it belonged, and someone will move it to the proper forum for you.
    4. Political and religious discussion is limited to the BEAR PIT, the same with any discussion on religion and religious matters. We are in a very divisive political climate so be aware of your words. They can and will be used against you, and the shooting community as a whole.
    5. Religious posts of any kind are frowned upon. This site is not for the discussion of one's faith as we feel that is a private matter best left off the forum. Attacking a member due to their political, religious, or sexual orientation will be grounds for removal without a warning.
    6. No all-caps array (FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE THIS) please. It is extremely hard to read and posts submitted in all-caps will be deleted automatically.
    7. Snipershide.com and its moderators reserve the right to delete posts and/or whole conversations we determine are of an irrelevant, abusive or disruptive nature.
    8. Disciplinary actions are up to the sole discretion of Sniper’s Hide and its moderators, each offense will be taken as a separate incident or may be compounded with incidents of the past resulting in harsher penalties.
    9. Anyone attempting to circumvent the disciplinary actions of the moderators may be permanently removed from the board without warning or notice.
    10. You will be responsible for your own communications and the consequences of posting or otherwise transmitting those Communications. Sniper's Hide, LLC. does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any material posted or otherwise transmitted by snipershide.com Website users or endorse any opinions expressed by such users. Sniper's Hide, LLC does not screen, monitor or approve Communications from our website users in advance. If we receive notification about a user regarding Communications which allegedly do not conform to this Agreement, Sniper's Hide, LLC. has the right, but not the obligation, to investigate the allegations and determine in good faith and at its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the Communication. We have no liability or responsibility to users for performance or nonperformance of such activities.
    11. Sniper's Hide, LLC. reserves the right to expel users and prevent their further access to the snipershide.com website for violating this agreement or violating the law. We have the right, but not the obligation, to remove communications that are abusive, illegal, disrespectful, disruptive, or otherwise problematic.

    Posting an Item for Sale requires Members to Upgrade to a Supporter Account

    Commercial
    1. No posting of links advertising off-site sales of any kind without express permission from the board or one of its moderators
    2. No advertising any off-site website that competes with Sniper’s Hide.
    3. No commercial postings by any business without first subscribing to the site's rules regarding Commercial Sales. Any business found violating this will be removed along with any and all posts. Contact Lowlight to get a sponsored membership.
    4. Do not attack companies. Members who chase down and attack any representative from any company shall be banned.

    Post Exchange Requirements
    1. All sales must comply with all State & Federal Laws regarding the item listed. It is the responsibility of the member listing their items to ensure they fully understand the laws in regards to the sale of their items. Each listing must fully lay out the applicable laws in writing when necessary to purchase restrictive items such as Class III items.
    2. You must be a Supporting or Commercial member to post. You are purchasing the ability to post and we are not responsible for monitoring your transactions. We do not participate in transaction negotiation or vet potential for buyers or sellers.
    3. If an item is posted for sale outside the Post Exchange, the post will immediately be removed and the user will be banned for 30 days with no notice, as the forum rules are considered the initial warning.
    4. Padding your post count will result in a temporary banning of 1 week. If you post more than 20 posts in a single day you will be considered to be padding your post regardless of the content.
    5. You must post a price in your ad to sell on this site. Any ads posted without prices will be removed.
    6. Members are allowed to decline a transaction without penalty. No reason is required for refusal of payment. If the parties involved cannot agree on the terms of purchase, or the sale seems suspicious, there is no requirement to complete the transaction.
    7. Users of the Post Exchange do so at their own risk. Any disputes or fraudulent transactions will result in one or both members being removed. Sniper's Hide cooperates with any and all requests from Law Enforcement without hesitation.
    8. Before you take part in a purchase or sale, be sure to check the feedback section of the buyers/sellers profile to see their reliability. If a user does not have extensive feedback, proceed at your own risk.

    Post Exchange Recommended Guidelines

    1. If you are selling an item, you must be the owner. You are not allowed to make a sale on behalf of someone else. We are not responsible for any bad sales deals and any user found selling for another person will be permanently banned.
    2. Do not post anything unnecessary or harmful on another person's ad. For example, do mention that you were able to get your item for $100 cheaper or that you “think” their item may be fake or faulty. Any information of this nature should be sent to the seller via private message.
    3. If you identify an item that is a fake or cloned, private message the seller with that information. If the ad is not modified after alerting the seller, report the ad to a moderator.
    4. Buyer and Seller should remain in contact throughout the purchase process. For example, the seller should be notified when the payment is sent and the seller should inform the buyer when the item is being sent.
    5. While good communication is the key to a good deal, the communication is between the buyer/seller and should be through private message ONLY. Don't clog the boards by bumping an ad to say "Payment Sent" or "Shipped Today" and the always popular "Item received and it looks great."
    6. Bumping an advertisement more than once during a 48 hour period is prohibited.

    Email Registration
