FORUM RULES & GUIDELINES

====================

The SikhSangat Team has had a discussion about the moderation rules of the forum over the past few years. We have all agreed to the following moderation system/rules and have committed to follow this system for the betterment of the sangat and to provide more clarity about our guidelines. We want to make this available for all the members so there's no confusion as to why they were given a warning or placed under moderation. Remember, we don't have enmity towards anyone we all seek one purpose and all have a common goal. We want to make this site as best as possible according to gurmat and want to bring forth the qualities of gursikhi like peace, love and compassion in the topics being discussed, the only thing we request is for all members post with love and humility.

WARNINGS

Two warnings will be given to a user to modify his/her behavior and adhere to the forum rules. Warnings may be given without any contact. After 2 warnings, user account will be put for moderation for 30 days. Moderation will be lifted upon the discretion of SikhSangat. User may write to the Admin (SikhSangat@live.com) stating why he/she should be taken off of moderation and how they will strive to make better posts.

BAN

Upon receiving 2 warnings, if the user continues to violate forum rules, it will result in the user being banned from the forum indefinitely without any contact. User may write to the Admin (SikhSangat@live.com) stating why he/she should be taken off of BAN and how they will strive to make better posts. IF we lift the ban, user will stay under moderation until further notice.

If you think something requires the attention of the moderators or if any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately; please hit the "Report this Post" link on the post in question. This will send an ALERT via PM and email message to SikhSangat so that they can address the problem next time they log on to their computer. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. You may also contact us at SikhSangat@live.com providing all details such as URL, User ids & brief description of your disagreement.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

Do not post messages that advocate harm or death to anyone, threaten the livelihood of anyone, or otherwise harass anyone. Do not send email, snail mail, phone, fax, or other messages to anyone if your intent is to threaten or harass, and do not encourage others to do the same.

SikhSangat will not responsible for any member's action BUT we will provide member's details and online activity to police officials if requested by law enforcement. This is fair warning to all members to think twice before posting.

FORUM RULES

Please review the following moderation rules before posting. Not following the forum rules will result in putting the member on moderation.

A member will be given a warning and put under-moderation for:

  • Insulting, name-calling and labeling other members; this includes both the initiating person and the person retaliating.
  • Spreading rumors about other person on the forum.
  • Never-Ever post any other person's picture without their consent. You may post pictures of public figures such as politicians etc.

  • Indirect personal attacks, sarcasm towards another member's posts and a negative tone of speech are also liable for a warning without any warning.
  • Death threats, soliciting and private messaging bibis on the forum.

  • Pro views or justifications or posts that are for ANTI-SIKH organizations/sects will not be allowed on SikhSangat.com and will be deleted and the member will likely be put under quality control/moderation. Most of these organizations include those that have been declared as anti-sikh by Akaal Takht Sahib such as kala afghana, naamdharis, radhasuaamees, etc.
  • No personal attack on Jatehdars of Sri Akal Takht Sahib or other 4 Takhts regardless of whatever information you may have. Member may discuss about former Jatehdars but we will not allow anyone to talk negative of any current Jathedars.

**Asking questions for educational reasons is allowed but all posts must be approved by the moderator in that topic.

GENERAL RULES

  • While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Refrain yourself from writing any derogatory comments on any religion. Any particular practice of a religion can be questioned but must be done so in a respectful and non-offensive manner.

  • We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention.
  • Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  • Private Messages received on these Forums are to be considered private and are not to be posted publicly unless the sender of the private message agrees. Also Participant shall not post messages containing personal phone numbers or addresses.
  • Do not post messages that advocate harm or death to anyone, threaten the livelihood of anyone, or otherwise harass anyone. Do not send email, snail mail, phone, fax, or other messages to anyone if your intent is to threaten or harass, and do not encourage others to do the same.

  • Stay on topic. Don't jump into an unrelated discussion and introduce a barely-relevant tangent in order to bring up your pet issue.
  • Do not spam the message board.
  • 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 of bigotry.
  • People who repeatedly and willfully break the rules, or who generally engage in rude, antisocial behavior, will be banned. It doesn't matter if you are a progressive or a long-term member of this board.
  • Not responding to or ignoring moderator warnings can lead to suspension. We reserve the right to ban/suspend anyone for any reason, and to delete any post for any reason.

  • Insults made against other members on this board are not tolerated, even those made via PM. Warnings will be issued to offending members.

This forum has zero-tolerance for junk. Unsolicited advertisement links and Spammers will be banned immediately and all spam deleted on spot. Abusive and inactive accounts may be removed at moderators consent without any prior notice, to reduce database load.

OTHER RULES

====================

BRINKERS = NOT ALLOWED

I'm within the rules. Some users find sport in seeing how close they can get to being thrown off a message board. The Admins/sewadars will often have a set of rules (typically known as the "Terms of Service" like this one) which specify how people should conduct themselves. One type of poster, a "brinker", attempts to get as near to the edge as he or she possibly can without actually going over.

Unlike the troll, who directs his or her efforts at the users of a system, the brinker is actually toying with the SikhSangat. He or she can be a thorn in the side of the administrator, holding the good name and popularity of the system at stake. Administrators hesitate to throw people off the system unless they have broken an explicit rule.

LANGUAGE

Although we do our best to cater for all, we do have certain limitations on SikhSangat. Language is one of them because you will notice the vast majority of posts are in English which has a universal base as it is one of the most used languages in the world. Communication is a problem in this world. It is one of the main causes for World Wars and poverty as well as in divorces and so on. And having taken these points into consideration, SikhSangat would like to request to all Sangat to please use English language to your advantage and post on this forum with language that every other member can understand. We all use slang language in our day to day speaking, but the advantage of this being a forum, means you can think longer about what you want to say with more time to express it. Extreme use of slang language is confusing to many members on this forum and will no longer be tolerated by moderators. Members can use Punjabi language in their posts. We will allow slang to a certain extent but SikhSangat reserve the right to choose the level allowed and will from hereon be moderating certain members more closely.

ADVERTISING

We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any services. Explicit advertising in sigs is also prohibited. Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members. There is SikhSangat Advertisement program which can be seen here: http://sikhsangat.com/adverts

SIGNATURE RULES

Links in signatures must follow these guidelines:

  • A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial provided the site is not against Sikhi or does not violate SikhSangat community standards. The SikhSangat.com team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
  • Duplicate links to the same URL in a sig are not allowed.

Size: All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, and you can't have both text and images

  • For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • For images in signatures: 1 image up to 200 pixels wide, 75 pixels tall and 20k in size
  • Animated images in sigs are not allowed

AVATARS

Obscene images such as beheaded animals, pornography or inappropriate content (swf files) or images are not allowed.

SEWADARS

====================

SOME FACTS ABOUT SIKHSANGAT

• SikhSangat will not have bias views. Thus we will not have sewadars who is associated with any Jathabandis.

• SikhSangat will reply to every email (SikhSangat@live.com) we receive as humanly possible.

• SikhSangat will respect its member privacy by not sharing their emails, PM with anyone.

• SikhSangat does not hold any grudge against anyone.

• SikhSangat is Neutral Forum.

MODERATORS & YOU

Treat all moderators with respect. Do not post messages attacking the moderators or administrators. All of the moderators on this discussion board are volunteers. They provide their time and their good judgment to this website free of charge. They do not make the rules; they only enforce the rules. They do not deserve to have scorn heaped upon them either publicly or privately. Anyone attacking moderation will earn a BAN without any warning.

Please be aware that moderators are not expected to be online all the time, and therefore they cannot respond immediately to every problem that arises on this discussion board. If you send an alert or complaint to a moderator, please give that moderator sufficient time to respond. Do not assume that a moderator is ignoring your concerns merely because he or she does not respond as quickly as you would like.

When a moderator enforces the message board rules, members are expected to respect their authority and abide by their decisions. If you disagree with a moderator's decision, you are encouraged to politely explain why you disagree. Do not send rude, dismissive, or disrespectful responses to the moderators. If you think a moderator has acted inappropriately, please contact the administrators privately at SikhSangat@live.com, so we can deal with it. Do not publicly post private messages you receive from moderators and administrators.

ADMINISTRATORS & YOU

If you have any questions about the rules of this message board, please contact the website administrators by sending an email to sikhsangat@live.com.

Occasionally, the administrators of this website will make decisions that are not popular. That is life. We have given up trying to make everyone happy, because it is simply not possible.

Messages posted on our discussion board are the opinions of the individuals who post them, and do not necessarily represent the opinions of SikhSangat.com.

iscuss the message, not the messenger

Regarding bumping of topics

If someone is advertising links to another site then no discussion should take place about that site on this forum unless it is an anti-sikh site. Any updates/additions to blogs and other websites which are external to sikhsangat can only be bumped once a month, if someone posts an entry to their blog or an article on their website or adds any other content to it (pictures, videos, etc.) then this should not be posted in their topic on SikhSangat right away, one update per domain, per month.

We want to get rid of all posts that are continuously bumping other websites and blogs which leaves little or no room for discussion, this is a DISCUSSION board not an advertising board, therefore we have to make this a regulation, if one doesn't follow this their posts will automatically be deleted and possibly have their account put under quality control.

This goes for events as well, for any events that are happening in a week's time, we can allow it to be bumped, but any events whose dates are further in the future we will not allow it to be bumped, if the threads are continuously being bumped and are not following these regulations, they will be deleted.

Controversial Topics

Raag Maala: Raag Maala appears on the last Ang of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. There has been much conflict in the Panth over this for the last 150 years. Majority of the members on this forum are at young age. This is the age to learn about Sikhi so that we can follow Guru Ji's path. It is very easy for young members to go off topic and turn the debate into personal attacks which brings down the quality of the forum. Although Bani is very dear to us and we would like to see this matter resolved but many great scholars have written so much about it. Both sides have good intentions and respect Bani very much. Any insulting, jatha bashing or vulgar comments are not allowed and will result in banning the member without any notice or warning. If anyone wants to explore this topic he/she should read the books that have been written in the past and make up his/her mind. No topics about Raag Maala shall be discussed on SikhSangat Forum. Warning will be issued. We request everyone to respect each other's beliefs and learn from each other.

Kes/Keski Kakkar: Whether you believe Kes is Kakkar or Keski, the most important thing is to keep both. Kes are very important in Sikhi and a Sikh must keep his/her hair. Keski is very important to cover Kes. Both are required for a Sikh (male and female). Both sides have rehatwaan Gursikhs such as Bhai Fauja Singh Ji and Baba Jarnail Singh Ji. We all should look at their jeevans and learn from their sacrifices. Any question that does not directly go against this policy may be asked.

Mool Mantar: Mool Mantar is basically first paragraph of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The controversy is over where this paragraph ends. We (sevadars) do not find it is proper for Sikh youth to be discussing this topic as it involves very deep understanding of Gurbani. Those who fight over this topic hardly recite Mool Mantar even once in a day. Reading Bani less or more with full concentration is more important. Read as much as you enjoy.

Dasam Granth Bani: SikhSangatholds a Pro Dasam Granth stand. We believe that the Dasam Granth Sahib in its current form is the work of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. No provocative, insulting or derogatory language will be tolerated against Dasam Granth Sahib. Any topic or post questioning the authority and authenticity of the Dasam Granth will not be allowed. Not following the rule will result in complete ban without an issuance of warning.

Meat: SikhSangat.com holds an Anti-Meat stand. We feel that eating meat is immoral, unlawful and simply wrong according to the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib jee. There have been numerous debates on this topic and both sides of the party have voiced their opinion ever since 2001. If you do a search on the board for the topic you will find MANY replies and topics. SikhSangat.com will not allow any topics that justify the killing of animals for food or otherwise. Any topic/post stating otherwise will be deleted. No pro-meat topics allowed on this forum.

Dasam Granth

Dasam Granth Bani: SikhSangat.com holds a Pro Dasam Granth stand. We believe that the Dasam Granth Sahib in its current form is the work of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. No provocative, insulting or derogatory language will be tolerated against Dasam Granth Sahib. Any topic or post questioning the authority and authenticity of the Dasam Granth will not be allowed. Not following the rule will result in Under moderation and possible ban without an issuance of warning.

SIGNATURE SIZE LIMIT

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fateh!

Dear Sangat,

It has come to our attention that some of the members are not within the 'allowable' signature limit. This limit is enforced because if someone's signature is too big and they've posted several times in one topic it extends the topic over several pages and the posts go onto the next pages. As part of the forum rules/guidelines and to ensure the posts don't extend to pages upon pages we have made this topic.

The current Signature Size Limits are as follows:

http://www.sikhsanga...?showtopic=9119

All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, and you can't have both text and images

• For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)

• For images in signatures: 1 image up to 300 pixels wide, 125 pixels tall and 20k in size

• Animated images in sigs are not allowed

If someone violates the above rule one of the sevadars will have to edit their signature so that it meets the above requirements. We don't like doing this but just having this policy in the rules/guidelines page isn't enough as many members still have almost twice the above limitation. Lets make everyone's visit to SS as pleasant as possible.

Bhul chuk muaf.

Your sevadars

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fateh!

Quality Control

SikhSangat.com reserves the right to place any member under quality control moderation as and when they see fit. An explanation is not required under quality control moderation but all efforts will be made to send the Member a message informing them that they have been placed under QC Moderation. The duration of the moderation will be at the prerogative of the Admin/Mod team.

Sikhsangat's Stand on Meat Debate

23 September 2008

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa,

Vaheguru ji ki fateh!

Upon discussion with the admins of SikhSangat, we have decided to take an anti-meat stand, we've been thinking about this issue for a while on an individual basis and until recently we've collectively decided that this is best for the forum. We feel that eating meat is immoral, unlawful and simply wrong according to the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib jee. There have been numerous discussions and debates on this topic and both sides of the party have voiced their opinions ever since the start of the site in 2001. We do not want to re-iterate the arguments against the debate. If you do a search on the board for the topic you will find MANY replies and topics on the topic and we leave the ultimate decision to your better judgment.

SikhSangat.com will not allow any topics that justify the killing of animals for food or otherwise. Any topic/post stating otherwise will be deleted.

SS Team

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa,

Dasam Granth March 1, 2008

Dasam Granth Bani: SikhSangat.com holds a Pro Dasam Granth stand. We believe that the Dasam Granth Sahib in its current form is the work of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. No provocative, insulting or derogatory language will be tolerated against Dasam Granth Sahib. Any topic or post questioning the authority and authenticity of the Dasam Granth will not be allowed. Not following the rule will result in Under moderation and possible ban without an issuance of warning.

We encourage members to be courteous to others, and treat fellow members the way they wish to be treated. Good manners are inseparable from Sikhi. Intelligent discourse and freedom of expression is encouraged, as long as it is exercised with responsibility. Insults made against other members on this board are not tolerated, even those made via PM. Warnings will be issued to offending members.

Gurfateh ji,

Due to our forum appearing on search engines, we cannot rely on external links to always be there. Therefore if the full text is not included then the topic becomes meaningless especially if the external link is no longer available. In addition to this, topics are supposed to generate discussion and if the users have to go away from the forum to read then they are not likely to discuss the topic here on forum.

We kindly request all of you to post news in news sub-forum section. See below topics as an example.

Wrong Format:

http://www.sikhsanga...336-new-planets

Right Format:

http://www.sikhsanga...alty-for-hawara

http://www.sikhsanga...ant-bhindrawale

Posts in wrong format will get deleted from SikhSangat forums.

In past we had a full ban on official website(s) belonging to Niddar Akhara business. To clarify our rule in more clear format, we decided that sewadars of sikhsangat will not allow any promotion, article, pictures, videos, articles of Niddar (UK) anywhere on our forums. At the same we also won't allow any attacks or mockery of any person.

We’ve had enough arguments/clashes on this forum over niddar related topics and thus we are putting strict ban and will give warnings to those who open new topics regarding him. Any more threads that are opened on this issue will get locked as soon as possible.

  • No more Niddar topic on SikhSangat
  • No promotion of social events where nidar is invited either as participant or guest speaker/showman.
  • No character defamation allowed

Modified Rules & Guidlines which will replace all old rules and guidelines starting Feb 1st, 2013.

-------

WARNINGS

Warnings may or may not be given to forum user. However, we will try our best to notify user to modify his/her behavior and adhere to the forum rules. Warnings will be given anonymously from either Admin or Moderator user id.

Under Moderation


If sewadars seen editing your post more often then your membership will go under moderation without notice. If sewadars still edit your posts then a final warning will be given in written pm/email form before disabling/ban your membership from our forums. We may put user under moderation with or without notifying user.

Typical user account time under moderation is about 4 weeks. Moderation will be lifted upon the discretion of SikhSangat. User may write to the Admin (SikhSangat@live.com) stating why he/she should be taken off of moderation and how they will strive to make better posts.

QC - Quality Control

QC is different than Under Moderation, it is implemented only to control the flow of below quality posts/replies etc. We may put new members under QC until further notice. We reserves the right to place any member under quality control moderation. An explanation is not required under quality control moderation but all efforts will be made to notify them. The duration of the moderation will be at the prerogative of the Admin.

BAN

If any user continues to violate forum rules and does agree with forum sewadars then Administrator will ban particular user indefinitely without any contact. User may write to the Admin (SikhSangat@live.com) stating why he/she should be taken off of BAN and how they will strive to make better posts. IF we lift the ban, user will stay under moderation until further notice.

REPORT THIS POST

If you think something requires the attention of the moderators or if any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately; please hit the "Report this Post" link on the post in question. This will send an ALERT via PM and email message to SikhSangat so that they can address the problem next time they log on to their computer. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. You may also contact us at SikhSangat@live.com providing all details such as URL, User ids & brief description of your disagreement.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

Do not post messages that advocate harm or death to anyone, threaten the livelihood of anyone, or otherwise harass anyone. Do not send email, snail mail, phone, fax, or other messages to anyone if your intent is to threaten or harass, and do not encourage others to do the same. Do not take your disagreements off the message board and into the "real world," and do not do anything to try to harm or harass any member of this message board in the "real world." SikhSangat will not responsible for any member's action BUT we will provide member's details and online activity to police officials if requested by law enforcement. This is fair warning to all members to think twice before posting. We may inquire with our legal advisors before releasing private information to such officials. We will not share any information with Indian officials on any issue at all.

We will give on real example. Office from London Police contacted us to inquire about member's activity. He provided his credentials and we validated/confirmed his credintials by calling his office. He wanted to check on ip addresses the member used during past few weeks. This was the case where young bibi ran away from home and parents were concerned about her safety. Officer contacted us and we gave them access to our system to complete the formality and help Sikh parents.

Dear Sadh Sangat Ji, 

We are reaching 20th year since this forum is online. Our last update on forum rules and guidelines were 7 years ago and thought it is time for the revision since we have new members and time.

We kept this forum free of cost and no advertisement from day 1. We have no other intentions but to provide a platform for sikh sangat to come online and be free to ask anything related to our dharam. 

Keeping it simple, following are main points:

  • Need to reach to us? Email SikhSangat@gmail.com and reply will be within 24 hrs
  • Need to report something, do not email us but to use "Report this post/topic" option available on every reply/topic. Action within 24 hrs (if needed to fix it)
  • No Meat topic allowed. We will not allow any pro-meat topics or replies regardless of any debate. 
  • Nobody is allowed to make any attack nor any mockery against any credible Sikh Jathabandi.
  • Respect others regardless of any differences you may have. Any mockery is not allowed.
  • Bypassing ban words by using different choice of letters certainly not allowed. We are not strictly enforcing but please do respect our request on not overdoing on usage of such bypass of words.
  • Gupt forum is not a place to discuss anything. The purpose of that sub-forum is to have discussion only on sensitive topics without disclosing your identity. We will continue to approve new topics but may move them to other sub-forums.
  • Cannibis are now legal in many countries and state and so is Alcohol and Tobacco productions. We will not allow our platform to be used for the promotion of this issue. 
  • It will take time to approve posts. Become member if you do not want to wait for the moderation. 

Keep the discussions safe for everyone.

Waheguru ji ki Fateh
