  1. COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
    The community is the heart of ToolzDO.com. ToolzDO provides multiple ways for neighbors to connect and actually interact with one another. Those include The Forum, Hello Wall, Item Wall, and Project Status. These tools are provided to promote and encourage open, honest, and respectful communication among Registered Members.

    Please remember that these are public spaces, so use common sense when sharing personal information. ToolzDO’s role is to foster and encourage open, honest, constructive and respectful communication among registered members. All members are encourage to read our Membership Agreement as many of the community rules are covered there: http://www.toolzdo.com/membership_agreement

    *The Golden Rule applies through out the site and especially here. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

    * ToolzDO is truly local and simultaneously global due to our web reach and the diversity of members of the real neighborhoods we serve. Personal offences based on age, sex, race, location, cultural background or any other criteria will not be tolerated. Cultures, opinions and traditions differ, and ToolzDO is a place for their cooperation, not clashes.

    * Political flames. See previous point - ToolzDO participants have different backgrounds and political views. Flaming each other based on these helps no one and will be intervened by eToolBay staff.

    * Posts created solely to solicit for monetary donations are not permitted anywhere on the site. For goods or services as donation, post a Wanted or Swap item.

    * Remember this is a family friendly site. So do not do anything that your grandparents would not do (now a days it is safer to go back a generation for the standard of decency).

    **************************
    FLAGGING/REPORTING
    **************************
    Reporting is similar to your real neighborhood watch. It's your way to alert us of potential problems. Use the "Flag this..." for member and listing page and the "Report" in the Forum. This is a confidential process. The member whose listing is reported will not know who reported it. Additionally, our investigation will be handled privately; you will not receive a personal response to your flagging message.

    * Repeated offenses or abuse of the flagging system by means of raising repeated, unjustified flags may result in the suspension and/or termination of your account.

    *********
    FORUM
    *********
    The Forum is where neighbors come to keep each other informed, help one another; organize and take action to better their community. Posting to the Forum is fairly simple. The Forum is broken into Categories which are like Communities/groups – CITY, HOA, COMMUNITY and TOPICS. First there are global rules applicable to all Forum use.

    * 3 strikes your post is out. Any content reported three times by the community is automatically removed from the Forum.

    * Discussing a specific member, goods and services offered or wanted item (either by name or with identifiable hints) in a negative way is not allowed. The one exception to this rule is a City Wide Alert about confirmed criminal behavior by a member.

    * Do not use the community spaces to facilitate or arrange any sort of auction or transaction.

    * Specific transactions and/or feedback should not be discussed in the Forum. Instead, contact support@toolzdo.com privately if you need help with a transaction.

    * Do not publicly post any kind of private information (for example: email, Conversations, letters, phone numbers, addresses, full names or business transactions).

    * Members represent that any charitable fundraising complies with all applicable laws.

    * A member who promotes that they’re engaged in charitable fundraising on behalf of a recognized tax-deductible charitable organization (for example: 501(c)(3) status or equivalent with the IRS, similar legally-recognized non-U.S. charitable organization) must receive appropriate consent from the charitable organization.

    * Keep your posts on-topic and in the appropriate section of the Forums. Forum threads in the wrong section will be moved without notice to the appropriate place.

    *You may put a business signature at the end of your Forum posts.
