These rules are here to ensure that CGN will be the premium firearms site for law abiding Canadian gun owners.
Policy for Harassment Using CGN Resources
Harassment using CGN resources is strictly prohibited. Harassment is defined as offensive, threatening, persistent or disturbing language and/or remark with the aim to target, insult, bully, humiliate, damage, cause loss and/or intimidate the recipient of the intended message through either private messaging or posting in the forums. This includes, and not limited to, the use of threats, swearing, slurs, slangs and/or any specific information of an individual.
Harassment of administrators and moderators of CGN will not be tolerated. CGN reserves the right to impose temporary or permanent suspension of members who harass administrators and moderators when they are carrying out their duties.
The business forums are the private forums of the paid business members. When you enter into their forums, you should see yourself as entering into their virtual store fronts. Therefore, it is a reasonable to behave in the same manner and observe the same etiquette as if you are meeting the store staff and owners in person. If you are rude or attempt to disrupt their business in their own forums or storefronts, they have the right to remove your postings and presence, and ask you not to post in their forums(or enter their storefronts) again. If you don’t cease and desist after you have been asked to stop by the store owner, that will be consider as harassment. If you do not agree with their prices, move along. The business forum is NOT the place you will use the prices of other businesses to attempt to obtain price match, or to advertise prices and availability of businesses other than the owner of that particular business forum.
Furthermore, if you have an issue with a business member, it is a common practice to make an attempt to resolve the issue with the business member privately. ( A reasonable person will not enter a store and scream at the top of him lung to gather everyone's attention and make a scene, will he?) If you have not been able to resolve this issue and made a posting in the forum, the issue could only be posted once. If a member has a particular issue with a business member and the issue is being purposely and repeatedly posted in the business member's forum, the business member can ask you to stop. If it continues, it will be treated as harassment and the moderator may step in and apply forum rules.
This policy is part of the forum rules. All forum rules will be enforced.
Welcome to CGN forum. First of all, no one likes to read long instructions, but there is no way we can keep this short. The CGN equipment exchange forums are a community based buy / sell system. We welcome members who are committed to observe the community standard and are interested in trading with fellow members in a system based on honesty and mutual respect. After 10 years of operation and probably millions of items listed, we have worked out these rules and they are proven to work! Please invest 5 minutes on understanding these rules and code of conducts, and you will find the join request instructions by the time you finish this quick reading.
The Equipment Exchange (“EE”) forums are "use at your own risk" classifieds". CGN is not responsible for any losses and disputes related to transactions that are associated with these classifieds.
The EE forums are intended for the listing of personal items that are non profit seeking - profit seeking activities are only allowed for paid business members [ie. Dealers]; Linkings in any forms to other firearms sites, such as on-line classified and on-line auction sites, are not permitted. Items that are posted in an any other websites will not be permitted to be posted in the equipment exchange forums of CGN.
Trade related disputes originating from the Equipment Exchange forums or with CGN business members [ie. Dealers] shall not be discussed in the forums. All disputes and feedbacks should be confined to the trader rating feedback system and private messaging. See FAQ “Guidelines for using CGN feedback system”
