General rules of conduct

The following general rules of conduct apply to all parts of LUXURY BARBER, i.e. our forums, product reviews, and other areas of our site.
We encourage you to share your thoughts and opinions openly and freely with other members within the context of our rules and traditions with the following caveat:
Freedom of speech, within the context of our site, does not necessarily mean you are permitted to say whatever you want whenever you want however you want, without consequence. Your participation in LUXURY BARBER require that you follow our rules and you must agree to do so when you register.
Of specific importance is the following:
You agree that you will not use LUXURY BARBER to: post or otherwise make available any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable; [i.e., you agree to conduct yourself in a civil fashion]

LUXURY BARBER may pre-screen Content, or refuse, revise or move any Content that is available via LUXURY BARBER in its sole discretion. LUXURY BARBER shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the Terms or is otherwise objectionable, as determined in LUXURY BARBER's sole discretion. [i.e., Moderators and Administrators have the right to take whatever action they deem necessary to maintain compliance with the rules, including editing your post, removing your post, and locking or removing your thread.]

LUXURY BARBER reserves the right to terminate your LUXURY BARBER account for the site immediately upon written notice to you (including email) for any breach of the Terms. [i.e., you can be banned or terminated from membership at the Moderator or Administrator's discretion for violation of the rules.]
Advertising Policy

Advertising is expressly prohibited on LUXURY BARBER in the form of, but not limited to; avatars, signatures, threads, posts, user title, location, albums or visitor messages. LUXURY BARBER retains the right to ask a member to remove or change content. Only approved vendors can use commercial logos or text as outlined by the Vendor Panel. If you have any questions, please contact a moderator.

Linking occasionally to eBay sales is permitted but limited to the Auctions section. However links by members with inadequate forum participation are considered 'drive-by marketing' and will be removed.

Although not specifically stated in the rules, the following conventions and traditions are to be followed here and you are expected to comply or face Moderator or Administrator action:
It is expected that you will post your questions and remarks in the correct topical forum. [i.e., you post about straight razors in the razor forum, about soaps in the Soap forum, etc.] and that posts you make to a thread will remain on-topic.
An Off-Topic (hereafter "OT") forum is provided for all other situations. While the OT forum is open to discuss anything you wish (within the limitations of our site rules, of course), we strongly urge that you refrain from starting threads on topics that traditionally become highly opinionated, such as politics, religion, sexual preferences, free speech, etc.

It is your responsibility to maintain the decorum of any thread you start. If members in your thread are uncooperative in that regard, report their posts to a moderator.
The moderators will extend little tolerance to rules violation, particularly in the areas of civility and respect.

You must comply with the requests and/or directives of the moderators. Failure to do so may result in the revocation of your forum privileges (i.e. you will be banned) for a duration of 24-hours or more, depending upon the frequency and severity of your infraction(s).

If you disagree with an action a moderator has taken specifically against you and/or one of your posts, contact the moderator off-line (i.e., via PM or email) and discuss the matter.

As mentioned previously, this site is run by Administrators, Senior Moderators, and Moderators. Issues are not decided unilaterally, ever. A combination of Moderators, Senior Moderators, and Administrators are generally involved in every decision that is not specifically addressed herein. Issues addressed herein, (e.g. SPAM) have been assigned actions that were previously agreed upon by the aforementioned group.

Signatures policy

For now, signatures are limited to 200 characters of text, maximum 3 lines, and no images, links or font changes. There are just a few simple rules:
No Advertising
No Links
No Profanity
No religion or politics
Any signature not in compliance will be simply deleted. Reposting of a non-compliant signature will result in the inability of that member to have a signature at all. If in doubt whether a signature is acceptable, a good idea is to look at moderators' ones for ideas, or to just ask first.

Reviews policy

The Reviews forum is the place to write reviews and comment on reviews of anything related to straight shaving from razors to brushes to soaps and hones.[2]
All opinions expressed in the Reviews forum are those of the individual members. The owners, operators, administrators, moderators or anyone having anything to do with the running of this site bear no responsibility for these opinions. None of the opinions have been solicited, endorsed, coerced by anyone else. In particular, this means that if you are a vendor and someone writes an unfavorable review of your product, you have no legal recourse against LUXURY BARBER or anyone involved in the administration of LUXURY BARBER. Disputes shall be settled between the vendor and the reviewer.

SPAM policy

According to rules agreed to when signing up for an account here you will not:
post or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation, or in any way identify or provide a link to any source of products or services related to shaving except in those areas that are designated for such purpose.

This includes posting a new thread as a "review" of an item without any participation in this community. Further, it should be noted that LUXURY BARBER definition of SPAM covers anything deemed to be disruptive marketing by the moderators or administrators of LUXURY BARBER. SPAM may be found in any user editable content on the site.

The purpose of the classifieds section is to provide a place for members to occasionally buy, sell, or trade goods and or services of interest to others. The classifieds section is the sole property of LUXURY BARBER and as such LUXURY BARBER reserves the right to delete, remove or request the editing of any ad that is deemed not in the best interest of the site or its members. Neither LUXURY BARBER nor members of its management accept any responsibility or liability for transactions that go bad or are not as advertised. All problems with transactions should be worked out between the members involved. The following rules are in place to govern this section:
Members wishing to post a 'For Sale' (FS) or 'For Trade' (WTT) ad must have a minimum of three (3) months of membership and no less than 100 posts or six (6) months of membership and no fewer than 50 posts. Exceptions to this rule may be made by the senior moderator team.
Any eligible member may advertise up to six (6) 'For Sale' ads at any given time. All items listed for sale must be listed in separate 'For Sale' ads unless the items are identical or being sold bundled together as a group for one total price.

All photos of items should be of the actual item and not from stock. All photos should be clear and show enough information for a clear opinion to be formed. I.E.: the edge of the razor, the spine to show hone wear etc.

All for sale ads must have a single desired price per item in the ad. Best offer only ads or any form of auction is prohibited.

Price discussion regarding classified ads is prohibited in open comments anywhere on the site. This discussion needs to take place via personal message or email between the concerned persons.

A vendor is defined as anyone operating a storefront (digital or brick and mortar) and or posting in the vendors section. The listing of services that vendors provide is permitted in the appropriate area of the classifieds.

For sale ads that make use of the 'Buy It Now' function in the classifieds must not be listed on any other site that requires an obligatory sale (such as popular auction sites). The intention of this rule is to avoid situations where two buyers send money for a single product. Posting a for sale item on multiple sites that do not obligate a sale is acceptable but the 'Buy It Now' function should not be used.
