Terms of Service and Rules

Terms and Rules Agreement 

OpenBuilds.com is a great resource to help individuals learn by having access to the details of other’s personal build experiences.  
This, along with access to feedback and the ability to collaborate with other like-minded individuals is invaluable to those who have the passion, imagination, and desire to push their limits as far as possible. 

In order to maintain the intended user experience, certain Terms and Conditions are in place. 
As with any community, rules and guidelines are important to keep the community running smoothly. Please keep in mind these rules, whenever posting, to keep our community pleasant for members and guests alike.  This is a community built around individuals getting and giving help and guidance. Your behavior should reflect that.  
Please know that OpenBuilds is NOT a place for businesses or individuals to post or share in any manner with the intent of promoting current or future products.
Access to the community is a privilege, not a right, and members who breach these rules may find themselves limited or removed from the community, regardless of the other contributions they have made. 
Please note that responses to questions posted on the forums cannot be guaranteed. Please do not submit the same questions to the forum and support tickets simultaneously. 
By registering on OpenBuilds.com you agree to adhere to all of the Rules and Conditions. 
If you do not agree with these terms, please do not register or use this Service. If you wish to close your account, please contact us. 

  1.  The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content"). Content submitted express the views of their author only.

    Do not attempt to sell or trade any products or services. This rule includes give-a-ways and competitions.  
    No advertising, spamming, solicitation, or commercial self-promotion of any kind is allowed.  self-promoting external product links are prohibited and, in those cases, Builds, post users are subject to moderation and/or removal solely at the discretion of OpenBuilds.  
    Please know that your Build(s), video(s), post, etc. may be updated or deleted to remove any marketing efforts. 

  1.  Service and resource providers may not solicit via conversations.  

  1.  We reserve the rights to remove or modify any Content submitted for any reason. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken at our discretion.   

  1.  You are granting us with a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, unlimited license to use, publish, or re-publish your Content in connection with the Service.  

  1.  Approved Builds must include links to Genuine OpenBuilds Parts, when applicable.  Posts and/or links to Non-Genuine OpenBuilds Parts will be removed.  Support will not be given for counterfeit or non-genuine OpenBuilds Parts, and all references of these builds/resources/threads will be removed.  

  1.  All of the OpenBuilds® registered trademarks, copyrights, products, brands, services, and website content, etc. (including images, models, content screen shots, text, and software) are owned exclusively by OpenBuilds LLC and its respective licensors and may not be used without a license. Unless OpenBuilds LLC explicitly gives you written permission, you may not use, reproduce, distribute, display, or perform such copyrighted and or trademarked materials in any form. You may request permissions from OpenBuilds, LLC if you are in need of the use of such materials. 

  1.  Published Machine Builds and content are considered Open Source as per license specified by the Author. In some cases, OpenBuilds may make available a bundle of parts for a given Build. The Build and/or original author will be credited.  

  1.  Be courteous and respectful of your fellow members. Personal attacks, aggressive messages, and passive-aggressive behavior is unacceptable. If you take issue with another user and are unable to reply in a civilized and constructive way to their posts, you should ignore the user.  If you feel another user is attacking or being aggressive towards you, report their message to staff. Do not respond publicly. This simply continues the back and forth that derails topic and makes it uncomfortable for other users. If someone attacks you and you respond with an attack, you will be warned regardless of who started it.  

  1.  Do not post anything which is inappropriate in a professional and/or family setting. This includes, but is not limited to, profanity, sexual, sexualized, or illicit content, hateful, threatening, provocative or vulgar content, links and websites and discussion encouraging the use of piracy or warez distributions, or any otherwise illegal content. Please do not attempt to circumvent the censoring options we have set up.  

  1.  Posts should always be constructive and on topic. For common issues, simply telling someone to search is not acceptable. If you disagree with a post and feel the need to reply as such, it’s important that you explain why. Off topic posts may be moved or deleted as required.  

  1.  Messages involving OpenBuilds competitors must be constructive. Posts regarding their business practices, staff, and hardware and or software are generally unacceptable.  

  1.  If a moderator or staff member takes an action or posts a directive (for example, to stop with a particular topic), you must adhere to this. If you discover a directive only after you’ve posted a message that contravenes it, delete your post or it will be taken to be ignoring moderators.  If you have a problem with or question a moderator’s decision, contact the moderator privately or submit a message through the contact system. Posts or topics discussing moderator actions will be removed.  

  1.  All content must be posted in English as it is not possible for us to moderate the forums otherwise. In very specific cases (such as distributing a translation), foreign languages may be used provided an English translation is provided as well.  

  1.  Do not bump threads unless you have something else to add to the discussion. Related to this, resources should not be bumped with updates unless the update is legitimate. Updates for the primary purpose of bumping the resource will be removed. Additionally, replying to discussions which have been inactive for several months or longer should be avoided unless you have something of value to add.  

  1.  Each user may only have one account. If duplicate accounts are discovered, all accounts may be banned.  

  1.  Personal information and private discussions may not be posted unless it’s clear that all parties involved have consented.  

  1.  These terms may be changed at any time without notice.
