******* TRF RULES ******** Read Before You Post
 
As you all know, TRF prides itself in being amongst the friendliest boards on the internet.

With the huge membership (and many more members joining each day), we feel that it's necessary to set ground rules. We are aware that the majority of members are self policing but nonetheless the rules apply to all members, old and new.

Please note that for the well being of the forums the rules will be rigorously administered. Multiple, identical/similar threads on different boards may be removed or merged.


1. NO PERSONAL ATTACKS OR INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE (and WE MEAN IT). We love to joke around here but, the joking stops as soon as someone stops laughing. You must take the view that we are a worldwide forum and that an attitude of sensitivity and respect should be the order of the day.

2. RESPECT THE OPINION AND CHOICES OF OTHERS. Example: If someone puts their Sea Dweller on a Pink and baby blue nato strap, that's their business. Think first .... click the back button on your browser and avoid posting a comment that will insult others and earn yourself infraction points.

3. THIS IS TRF AND NOT <INSERT OTHER FORUM NAME HERE>. Don't bother bringing in disputes that start elsewhere into TRF. Mods will just delete those threads and issue points.

4.FORUM IS NOT TO BE USED FOR :

(i) LINKS TO REPLICA, PERSONAL OR COMMERCIAL ENTERPRISE WEBSITES or BLOGS, UNLESS WITH FULL PRIOR ADMIN PERMISSION,USING TRF FOR GROUP BUYS IS PROHIBITED,AND ANY FORM OF SELLING WHATSOEVER UNLESS WITH FULL ADMIN PERMISSION AND IN FOR-SALE FORUM ONLY..


(ii) THE OFFERING OF (OR INFERENCE TO) ANY WATCH OR ARTICLE FOR SALE IN ANY POST, SIGNATURE OR OTHERWISE OUTSIDE THE FOR SALE OR TRADE SECTION. ADMIN RESERVES THE RIGHT TO IMMEDIATELY REMOVE SUCH OFFERINGS AND WILL ISSUE A WARNING ACCOMPANIED BY INFRACTION POINTS OR BEING BANNED.

(iii) TRF IS NOT A SHOPPING SERVICE TO AVERTISE GREY MARKET PRICES, OR LINKS TO GREY MARKET PRICES SO PLEASE DO NOT ASK WHERE OR WHO YOU CAN BUY SUCH AND SUCH A WATCH FROM, WHICH AD OR PERSON TO SHOP AT, OR THAT YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU FOR YOUR DESIRES. IF YOU WANT TO BUY OR ARE LOOKING FOR A PARTICULAR WATCH OR ACCESSORY USE THE "WANTED TO BUY" BOARD ONCE YOU HAVE MET THE FORUM REQUIREMENTS.

(iv) THIS IS A ROLEX WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM AND NOT A PRICE OR INVESTMENT OR DISCOUNT DISCUSSION FORUM SO IF YOU HAVE A QUERY REGARDING PRICES, INVESTMENTS OR DISCOUNTS THEN MAKE YOUR OWN PERSONAL ENQUIRIES AND INVESTIGATIONS AND DO NOT POST THOSE ISSUES HERE.

5. THIS IS NOT A FORUM FOR THE DISCUSSION OF FAKE WATCHES, BRACELETS ETC, and your opinion are about FAKE WATCHES and who makes them, sells them, buys them and wears them is NOT welcome.

6.CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS OR POSTS such as those relating to politics,drugs, race, culture, religion, sexual orientation, objectification or discrimination, violence (toward persons or animals) will be subject to the final and absolute discretion of the Moderators to be immediately locked and/or removed without notice to any member. No gun, knife, weapon threads or pictures of such since we are a worldwide forum and many members are not comfortable with this type of material. Infraction points and a possible lifelong ban will inevitably accompany such pictures, posts, or threads.

7. Knowing that a scammer is a banned or current member, and not reporting it to Admin, is an offence that carries a mandatory TRF suspension and may result in an permanent ban.

8. Warning do not post any possible copyright infringements like Rolex T-Shirts etc unless they are officially authorized by Rolex. Any posts that's deemed a possible copyright infringement will be removed by any MOD or Admin..

9.MODERATORS and ADMINISTRATOR DECISIONS ARE FINAL.

10. Only one user active account is allowed on forum at any one time, any member registering and knowingly using two accounts could face a instant ban.


11. Click on the red triangle icon to report suspicious & scam activity as well as rules violations. It’s fine to start a thread on these reports but first and foremost report by clicking on the red triangle. This icon is also present in private messages to report suspicious activity and or rules violations within a private message. This report is automatically sent to all moderators.

12. The report button (red triangle) is only to be used for reporting abusive, insulting or troll posts, guns, politics or scams, and is not for reporting posts that you disagree with, content that you don’t like, or other pet peeves. In other words, mods are not on call to tailor forum content to your liking via the report button. Repeated overuse of the report button may earn infraction points.
