As you may have noticed, we lost the updated forum rules in the crash earlier this year.

In consultation between the moderators and the owner, the rules have now been restored and brought up-to-date. Among other things, the policy on weapons/knives in pictures has been clarified.

You can find the "Sinn Forum Rules and Guidelines" as a sticky thread here. For your convenience, the full text of the updated rules is reproduced below:

WatchUseek Sinn Forum Rules & Guidelines:

1 Members will be kind and courteous. No personal attacks or insults of any kind will be tolerated, nor will racism, sexism, bigotry, or foul language.

2 No sales posts or "Want to Buy/Trade" posts of any kind. All such posts will be immediately deleted. There is a Sales Corner at WatchUseek for this express purpose. If you have a special offer you would like to make directly to forum members, e-mail the moderators first to discuss it.

3 Linking to live auctions is permitted for discussion purposes only. Links posted by the seller will be treated as sales posts and immediately deleted. Links to incorrect, misleading or fraudulent auctions are also permitted, provided that the sole intention is to warn other members.

4 Please limit off-topic posts, and mark them clearly as such ("OT" in the subject line, and/or the OT or coffee cup icon). Please do not initiate or participate in political or religious debates. Also, consider whether WatchUseek's Public Forum or The Café might be a more appropriate place for your post.

5 Images containing weapons of any kind are not allowed. While tool knives are not considered weapons, please keep in mind that pictures of knives are offensive to many of our worldwide membership. Moderators will take appropriate action should pictures be deemed to be offensive or aggressive, and their decisions are final. You are therefore asked to consider that your watch should be able to stand on its own, without a knife prop, and generally to exercise discretion when posting pictures in keeping with the kind and courteous spirit of the forum.

6 Don't engage in dialogue with a troll or a spammer. Report them to the moderators.

7 Moderators' and the administrator's decisions are final. If you are in doubt about a post, please contact a moderator before you submit your post.

8 Lastly, WatchUseek is owned, and operated by Ernie Romers, not the forum participants, nor the moderators. The volunteer moderators are here to administer forum policy, and to provide help, within reason.

Violation of these rules may result in disciplinary measures, which may ultimately include being banned from WatchUSeek.

We look forward to your contributions!

Best regards,
WatchUseek Staff
