The combination of VerticalScope's Terms Of Service (Terms of Use) and the rules that follow comprise this site's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).

Prohibited Activities
  1. Proprietary Information shall not be posted within any part of TriumphRat.Net, which includes using TriumphRat.Net as a platform for exporting proprietary information. If proprietary information is posted, it will be edited and/or removed.
  2. Copyrighted material shall not be posted on TriumphRat.Net without the permission of it's owner. We do not allow the distribution of copyrighted material, such as links to illegal download sites for service manuals, music, pirated software, etc.
  3. Posting of off-topic content. Only motorcycle-related content is allowed within the various model sub-forums. However, provision is made for discussion of a wide range of non motorcycle topics within the Bikers Hang Out forum, but must be kept within the guidelines laid out in the AUP.
  4. Posts that deem to constitute personal attacks, posts that denigrate or insult, inflammatory posts, racial, ethnic slurs, hate speech, or posts that are likely to encourage inflammatory responses are not encouraged, and may be edited or deleted.
  5. Executing a retaliatory strategy towards other individuals or companies. We welcome open communication here, including issues; but with an intent on helping to resolve. TriumphRat.Net is an online community, not a virtual weapon.
  6. Religion & Politics: Discussions involving religious and political matters have been demonstrated to be prone to inflammatory exchanges, and they are therefore not permitted here.
  7. Using TriumphRat.Net to Spam, or for other types of spamming activities.
  8. Fraudulent Activities, or committing fraud.
  9. Extreme or Consistent Profanity, no exceptions.
  10. Mis-spelled Profanity or other character replacements designed to bypass word filters.

  12. Sending potentially dangerous content, including viruses and worms, for the purpose of gaining access to other member's computers.
  13. Cross-Posting of advertisements for products, items or services.
  14. Disrupting any area of TriumphRat.Net with frivolous, excessively vulgar, hateful, or repetitious postings. This also includes using Profanity, in any fashion.
  15. Posting of excessively large files/images. In other words, images are allowed but should be limited in size so that dial-up users reasonably view them as well. If you have images in the Photo Albums, post a link to your album in lieu of posting the actual photo.
  16. No forum wars. If you have beefs with users in other forums, this isn't the place to air them out.
  17. No personalized threads. Threads on this forum are for the attention and enjoyment of ALL members. Anything that needs to be sent to a specific users attention, should be done so using the Boards Private Message system. Personalized threads will be deleted.
  18. No mod baiting. Ranting about moderators, abusing moderators or provocation of moderators is not acceptable behaviour and may result in your account being temporarily or permanently banned.
  19. The decision to ban an account is not taken lightly. If a friend has been banned, don't start threads to "Free so and so", or "Reinstate so and so", otherwise your account my be temporarily or permanently banned as well. If you want to know about the infraction involved, PM a moderator, although generally such matters are between the site staff and the individual concerned.
  20. Mod decisions are final. The Forum team (Moderators/Administrators) will be the sole authority of what does and does not break these rules. Moderating is a thankless task that absorbs a lot of personal time. The mods run the site so that you have a forum to use and share information. We ask that you respect their decisions.
  21. Private Messages are Private. If you post someone's PM and your account will be banned.
  22. Posting private information about someone will result in your account being banned. You may not publish or post other people's private and confidential information—their name, phone number, where they live, and so on - without their consent.

  24. Using TriumphRat.Net content within any other web site, publication, verbal communication, or multimedia release without permission.

  26. Posts that ask for or encourage financial payment, commercial or charitable. Please make arrangements for advertising by contacting VerticalScope at Contact Us.
  27. Cross-Posting the same topic across more than one page or category. This type of activity is disruptive and is abusive to the other members of TriumphRat.Net. If there is an issue or question, send a private message to an Administrator or a Moderator before posting or editing.
  28. Explicit Content; Text or Images depicting pornographic content, including mild or soft porn. This also includes content that has nothing to do with motorcycling. There are other sites on the web that are better suited for providing that kind of information/service.
