    Default Front Range Rules and Pete's Thoughts



    Okay people, you may have noticed that Chris has instigated a pop up where you have to agree to some basic rules on the forum before proceeding. This is good and reinstates some of the very basic and simple rules of the forum, which are not rocket science to follow.

    I am going to add to that as I just got off the phone with a former (and new) member who asked to be removed from the forum due to some PMs that he received that were not only not very polite in nature, but were of the 'my make and model is better than your make and model' BS that neither Chris nor I tolerate.

    That episode, which soured this person on the forum (and he is a nice guy, too) and the fact that Chris mentioned racial slurs being posted on another thread, another thing neither he nor I tolerate, puts me in a not too nice mood...not a pleasant thing...as I am not the most tolerant person on the planet on the best of days.

    Not only does the pop up re explain the basic rules of Front Range, but they are listed on the Front Page. My suggestion to you all is if you are thinking that maybe you haven't grasped the simplistic concepts of Front Range 4x4's rules, are prone to racist thought, comments or remarks, or actually do think your particular make and model of rig is better than anyone elses, is to both re read the rules and rethink about your involvement with this particular forum.

    Here is your one and only warning from me:

    If I get word of this stuff going on and find out who does it, or read a post containing this kind of crap, I will make note of it to Chris and you simply won't be on the forum...period...no warning...no s***ski...and no amount of whining or other pathetic BS on your part is going to change that.

    Thanks Pete, I have added content to the popup page that I didn't think was necessary before today.

    Everyone needs to read and understand these parts:

    It doesn't matter how experienced you are, pro or novice, you're welcome here. Seasoned wheeler or first time wheeler and everything in between is welcomed and respected at Front Rnge 4x4. It doesn't matter what kind of 4x4 you drive, we like all 4x4's. Chevy, Dodge, Ford, Hummer, Jeep, Isuzu, Nissan, International, Land Rover, Pinzgauer, Suzuki, Toyota, whatever you have. Participating in the forum is an easy way to meet other 4x4 owners, make some friends, ask questions, get good answers, run some local trails, etc.

    There are plenty of vehicle-specific clubs around, if that's what you're looking for, this isn't for you. We think everyone can get along and have respect for each other's 4x4 regardless of make & model. We can all get along just fine, help each other out, have a good time and wheel together. If you want to do a vehicle specific run don't post it here, it will be deleted. Instead find your local vehicle club and run it with them instead. We like variety!

    If you think the only truck worth owning is what you drive or that anyone with less modifications has an inferior truck, this isn't the place for you. If you like to get off-road, have some beers and trash the trails this isn't the place for you either. We believe in giving back to the 4x4 community, forest service and supporting organizations that make wheeling in Colorado as great as it is.

    A few people have been involuntarily deleted and as Pete mentioned, one recently asked to be removed due to negative make/model crap received. Anyone who holds to these ideas that their truck is better than someone else's, that only Brand X is worth owning, or feels some need to put down or criticize someone's truck should PM me now so they can be deleted.

    I know I had a little slip of the tongue with language a little bit ago (sorry!), but I stand behind you both and your decisions 110%. Thanks for all your hard work keeping this group together! It's done wonders for me.

    I don't see any popup thing? Which is probably good since I hate those things. But do I need to see it for some reason?

    Not really a popup Andrew, did you get a page that you had to agree to regarding the rules of the forum? It's this page: http://www.frontrange4x4.com/forums/...hp?do=vsarules

    I dont think I got that page Chris. I did log on late last night when I was really tired, so maybe i saw it and dont remember, but I am pretty sure I didnt have to re-agree to anything. Sorry to hear all of this happened, and hopefully whoever asked to leave will come back to us someday!

    Oh yeah I never log out either.

    Chris if you want people to have to confirm it then you need to do a force logout on everyone. There should be an option to do this. Usually happens with upgrades, just invalidates cookies.

    Just making sure you were not going to start getting out the ban stick for those not confirming and me never seeing it

    Racism and Brandism (?) suck. Good job Chris and Brody.

    I hate all red and bedliner colored vehicles, though. Those are inferior!

    2 tone faded red is my favorite though... Just realized I am thread crapping.

    The point of the thread is, "don't do that". Lets all be respectful of each other and cut out the hating!

    Andrew, yep that's what I overlooked. I shudder to think of the posts/pm's I'll get if people start having cookie issues again.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of humor, unfortunately that's not the level this stuff was at.

    Personally I don't care what people like/dislike, what their prejudices are/aren't, etc - just need people to understand to keep it to themselves.

    Thanks for going over the rules like that guys, I had the pleasure of meeting the new member that asked to be removed due to these things and heck he seemed like one of the coolest people I have met so far and his rig was totally sick. Thanks to a few people we lost a great guy, hopefully those few and they know who they are were deleted from the site, we don't need it here.

    well hopefully the individual will come back knowing that these things arent tolerated. Tis a shame too that someone in this group WAS a stupid bucket of bricks and ruined it for someone else.


    Me being imperfect i ask everyone to correct me if i step out of bounds. my brand and vehicle dislikes are those that are never taken offroad

    Yeah that sucks. I don't know who it was but we should ask them to join back.
