REBUILDING IS RECYCLING It's good for the environment!
The Electrical Rebuilder's Association website is a communication tool for our members to share information, ideas and opinions relating to our industry. We encourage all members to participate and share their views. However, a few rules are needed to keep the site professional and maintain a setting that is conducive to constructive participation from all members.
Why have these rules?
These site rules were written by the ERA website committee and approved by the Board of Directors, for the purpose of maintaining a high level of professionalism. The purpose behind the first two rules should be obvious.
The purpose behind the pricing rule was to prevent our forums from evolving into an online auction or getting our association and members in trouble with the Federal Trade Commission in respect to federal anti-trust laws against price-fixing. One click instant messaging or private email should be used to exchange price information.
The Off Topic Forum is provided for those who want to discuss the weather, sports or life in general with the friends they've made on the website. Restricting these conversations to the Off Topic Forum will help us preserve our server space for technical and parts messages that might prove useful to someone 12 months from now. For the Off Topic Forum to serve its purpose, we need to use it for all conversation that does not fit into one of the other forums. Please note that the Off Topic Forum is not exempt from the rules. Please use common courtesy at all times.
