Terms of Service and Rules
By using this forum you agree to follow the forum's rules;
This is not a public forum, but rather a privately owned service and as such, you are a guest. Please conduct yourself accordingly.
Members must use & maintain a valid email address. This address will not be used for any purpose other then to send you your password, & to keep you updated with developments on the site.
Do not post racist, homophobic, ethnic, or anti-religious statements. Unambiguous expressions of a racist, homophobic, ethnic, or anti-religious nature (for the purpose of these rules atheism will be classed as a religion) will be deleted, and will often result in the immediate warning of the individual responsible for the post however, if there were previous warnings of similar instance in the past then an immediate banning of the individual responsible may occur. If it is not clear whether a comment is racist, homophobic, ethnic, or anti-religious, we will generally give the benefit of the doubt. However, members who repeatedly post borderline comments will be considered for removal from the site. When discussing race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion, please exercise the appropriate level of sensitivity toward others and take extra care to clearly express your point of view. This will help avoid misunderstandings and undeserved accusations. Remember that someone reading your post may not interpret the tone & nuances the same as they would if you were talking to them.
This is an international forum. Be aware other members may be from a different country & culture to yourself & English may not be their first language. We are ALL foreigners here.
We aim to be a work & family friendly forum. Please do not post nudity, profanity etc.
There is a difference between strongly held views (allowed) and personally attacking people (forbidden). If you can't tell the difference, you are likely to get into trouble here.
You are likely to disagree with some comments you see in The Lounge. Please do not take these differences of opinion personally. The simple fact that someone disagrees with you does not give you the right to lash out and break the rules of this message board. A thick skin is usually required to participate on this or any message board.
CPL is a friendly venue. If a member posts information that is wrong, ill-considered etc they should be corrected in a courteous manner.
Moderators & Admins are here to protect the site & ensure it runs properly. There may be times when a post is removed or locked if we feel it has deteriorated or can go no further. Under our rules any such post may be moved to a private forum & discussed between the admins/mods - we will then tell the original poster why the post has been removed or restore it if we feel it can continue without problem. Whilst it may be frustrating not knowing where your post has gone, please do not start another thread asking were it has gone. Please be patient. Use the 'Contact Us' link if necessary. The Forum Moderators have the right to move, edit, censor, delete or otherwise modify any posted information. ClassicPressure Lamps (CPL) reserves the right to use, keep, move or remove posts made on the site at any time for any reason without notice.
The owner of this forum is not responsible for the opinions expressed by the members. CPL is a 'post-message' moderated forum site. The moderators view the forum on a regular basis to view posts made by users AFTER they make them. This means there could be content that is not appropriate on the site prior to a mod removing it. We will do everything we can to remove offending material in a timely manner, however CPL is not responsible for the content printed or requested by members & is also not responsible for the validity or verification of ANY information or postings contained within the forums.
We do not accepts links or reference numbers to live internet auctions. Other members may have already found the auction & be planning to bid. Bringing a live auction to everyone’s attention may end up pushing the price up. We all have the facility to search ebay etc so please leave it at that. Do not post links to internet auctions in the Reference sections of the site to illustrate examples of a particular lamp. These links will expire & no longer contribute to the site. It is better to save & post the images as 'fair use' & make it clear the images are taken from an auction page. If you seek & obtain permissions to use the images we will glady have them credited 'Courtesy of ......'. If you wish to ask for advice on something you have seen on a live auction please send your question via the contact form & we will direct to the member we think best able to help you.
Exception: It is ok to post links to Buy-it-now listings as these are not auctions. Please ensure there is other info in the post to make the post meaningful when the link expires. Ideally post a sceen snip or shot.
If you wish to post a question or discuss an auction that has ended please post a screenshot of the auction page. This shows the minimum info required if you crop the screenshot.
Please post your topics in the appropriate forum & save our staff some work. Users who persist in posting in the wrong forums will be warned. Further misplaced posts may lead to all your posts being moderated - ie they will not appear until approved by a mod. Such approval is a low priority task & may mean a delay of several days before your posts appear.
Do not hotlink pictures from other websites. If you wish to post a picture from another website please obtain their permission first or post a link to the page containing the image.
Any content you post on the site remain your copyright. You give the site the right to display your content & the moderators the right to move your content elsewhere on the site for reference purposes. Content moved will remain assigned to your account. You also give members the right to hot-link your pictures in other threads within the forum to illustrate a discussion.
Please do not post in all CAPITALS as it indicates shouting & makes posts harder to read. If you wish to indicate shouting restrict capitals to a few words.
Do not post the same thread in multiple forums. If you have posted in the wrong forum by mistake & it is too late to delete your post then use the "Report" link at the bottom of the post & we will move it to the correct forum.
Do not post adverts for goods on the forum. If you have lamps or related items (meaning accessories, parts, tools etc) place your ad in the Trading Post. This section requires a subscription to post
Do not post links to commercial sites in your signature (subscriber feature) without permission from site admin. Non-subscribers must not post links to commercial sites in their posts in a way that mimics a signature. Links to commercial sites that have no relevance to the thread or forum may be considered as spam & deleted.
The Signature function is a subscriber feature. Content posted by non-subscribers deemed to mimic the signature feature may be deleted or edited without notice at moderators discretion.
Spammers - posts will be deleted & accounts terminated.
Please do not ask for valuations - see site policy.
Bans - we are able to ban members for one day up to permanently & reserve the right to do so at our discretion for breaches of the rules. Such a ban is unlikely. Common sense & good manners from our members should mean we do not have to use this option. There are no guidelines as to exactly when or for how long a ban will apply - the site owners discretion will apply.
Classic Pressure Lamps has the right to terminate your ability to access the Service, for any reason, without notice.
Members accounts & content will not be deleted. Should you wish not to use the site & would prefer your posted content not to be associated with your account name, your account can be given an anonymous name on request. Images & content of a personal nature outside the core interest of the site will be deleted at the owners discretion if links to such content are provided. If a request is received to delete an account without reference to this policy, the account will be anonymised & an anonymous username assigned by the site admin.
