FORUM RULES – Please Read and Agree before using our FORUMS
BY USING THE CGS FORUM YOU IMPLY ACCEPTANCE AND AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE FOLLOWING. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU READ THESE RULES IN FULL AND ABIDE BY THEM:
In order to keep this forum running well and serve as a great place to get help and advice, please follow these simple rules for the forum here. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact the Admin or Moderators.
• While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
• Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsense posts, or the such.
• Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
• Cross posting, the act of posting the same thing across multiple forums, is not allowed. Please just post once in the most appropriate forum.
• Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
• We also do not allow posts that are sexual or violent in nature or violate polite community standards.
• Additionally adult/sexual topics and those concerning sexual orientation as used in a derogatory, inflammatory, or insensitive manner are not allowed.
• The CGS moderation team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
• Discussion of illegal activities are not allowed. There is a zero tolerance policy for illegal activity being discussed.
• Do not post content from private correspondence, such as email or chat, within the forums. Posting any other persons private information such as name, email, phone number or address could result in banning.

• You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral.
• You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests, similar websites to CGS or other similar forums.
• Foul language isn’t necessary to discuss guitars and help people, so it won’t be tolerated. Any such post will be removed. Using asterisks or any other symbol to disguise bad language is considered bypassing the filter and will still be removed.
• Hidden links in posts or signatures are assumed to be malicious and members posting such content will be permanently banned, no exceptions.

• Image replies are not allowed (posting just an image in response to a question)
