Moderator Notice:

Please make yourself aware of these rules: The Facebook page is moderated too.

Thank you.


RULES

1) Abide by the forum rules given by the administrators. Any breach in those rules will cause you retrieve the relevant punishment as posted in the rules.

2) Do not double post in threads. If you happened to post halfway through the day and went on for more spottings/joyriding, you ought to edit your previous post unless someone else posted after your previous post..

Consequences:
1st offence: Verbal warning, posts merged
2nd offence: Negative reputation, posts merged with Verbal warning
Subsequent offence(s): 1 warning point with 1-2 days expiry, dependent on severity

3) Please refrain from flaming/attacking a particular bus forum (e.g. SGF/SPT) or any particular person, we do not want any form of politics here!

Consequences:
1st offence: Verbal warning
2nd offence: Negative reputation, 5 warning points
Subsequent offences: 7 warning points with 1-6 days expiry or Permanent Ban dependent on severity

4) Photos posted should not have sensitive areas (e.g. Staff Rooms of interchanges, bus park areas) unless you have permission.

Consequences:
1st offence: Photo replaced with Mod notice
2nd offence: Photo removed, 1 warning point
Subsequent offences: 3 warning points, photo removed
If you claim that you have permission and a PTO writes in to complain, you will receive 10 warning points (and that means, yea Sad )


5) Arguments and debates should be kept under control - do not go to a point where you offend the other user as it might be a case of cyber-bullying and the police may be informed in serious cases.

Consequences:
1st offence: Verbal warning
2nd offence: Negative reputation, 5 warning points
Subsequent offences: 7 warning points with 1-6 days expiry or Permanent Ban dependent on severity

6) For re-deployments, adverts, lay up statues and bus spotting threads, please only post information that you have gathered first hand - ie through observation, or information that you are sure of its authenticity. Sites like SGWiki are unreliable as they can be edited by anyone and thus should not be used as a reference. This is to prevent misleading forum users.

Consequences:
1st offence: information replaced with mod notice
2nd offence: information removed, 2 negative reputation
Subsequent offences: 1 warning point for third offence,  with an increment of 1 warning point for every subsequent 2 offences

Rules can and will be updated without prior notice. Last revision date is on the OP title.
