The SVX World Network is a “community.” As in all communities, there will be
disagreements, however, if we are to peacefully coexist, we ask that
disagreements be either worked out in a civil manner, or, members who disagree, agree to disagree.
Time and time again, we have been told that “this community” is unlike
any other, in that the members seem to be able to get along without bravado and
a need for “one-upmanship.” We ask that
you respect the traditions of this community that have evolved since the
forum’s beginnings in 2001.
Thank you for your cooperation, and we hope you enjoy the
site. The Moderators and Administrators are here to make sure these forums are
fair to all and reflect the values of the majority of this community. Moderator meetings are held, from time to
time, to determine and adjust policy and procedures as needed. We will continue to uphold the highest level
of integrity and fairness and to look out for this community’s greater
good. If you have any questions about
what is appropriate or if you have concerns, please contact a Moderator or
Administrator for help. Happy posting
and enjoy driving your SVX.

If a member posts material or comments that break the
Network’s rules and guidelines, they will be given a “Verbal Warning”. They will receive a PM stating (if necessary) that
their post has been deleted with an explanation of why it was deleted and it
will be requesting that they discontinue their infraction.
If the offense continues, a PM with the word, “WARNING” in the subject line, will be
sent, along with an explanation that further infractions will result in a “Time-Out”, during which time they
will be unable to post to the Network.
If the warning is ignored and the member continues their
behavior, they will be sent a PM with “TIME-OUT”
in the subject line and an explanation of the length of time the member must spend
If, after the “Time-Out”,
the behavior continues, or the member commits another serious infraction, they
will be “Banned” from the site. A
PM will be sent to the offending member explaining that they have not changed
their behavior and have been “BANNED”
from the site.
We certainly hope that such extreme measures will not be
