To view please go to the services menu once you are logged in. Site navigation is fairly simple – please refer back to the ‘Gobal Group‘ menu – ‘Parts-Ring’ page to close otherwise you can close the browser window directly. At this stage we found that the Ring-Subscriber service runs fairly quickly and we have done away with RPX login, popups or anything of annoyance value. It may be pertinent to note that a service provider in this case is not your ISP but a person whom is qualified to provide any service. Parts-Ring is in fact more dedicated to technology – but we have no issues with subscribers looking to buy or sell any product as long as the correct category is used. This applies to a service you may provide as well.
The parts-ring database is entirely self moderated (at this time). Select manufacturers do have access to delete profiles of service agents, providers and sellers (especially within the channel) whom they feel are unfit to be trading as a registered subscriber – this through ethical or illegal means.
Users of this web-site must register as a community member to have full control over parts they wish to buy or sell either locally or internationally. Parts-Ring users are urged to post queries or suggestions on the forum or use the Classifieds section which is for members only. This will require you to register as a dedicated Parts-Ring Subscriber onto the database. Subscribers can post links to their web-site(s), register as dealers, manufacturers and/or distributors as well as post advertisements/advertorials which can be seen by all members of the community. It is advised that subscribers be registered companies and do not advertise in a private capacity – the community board is used for this purpose. Note that Service Providers, Agents and sellers have their contact details made public. The main intention here is to allow general users to select specific vendors in either their location or internationally whom qualify to supply the product of their choice.
The parts-ring subscription service is dedicated to the following categories:
Electronic Engineering – electronics in general / low current
Electrical Engineering – electrical contractors, design engineers etc / high current
Schematics (only legal transcriptions may be posted – see our parts-ring code of conduct).
Categories will be added as the need arises – this can be done through a subscriber whom need to expand the selection process for entering data. Subscribers have noted and agreed to the documentation relevant to Parts-Ring.com. [Privacy, Classifieds, Contact Pages and the Forum].
Manufacturers are urged to become moderators through a signup – apply to the webmaster at Parts-Ring.
Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead them being banned.
Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something in these or site rules they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of a Moderator Team.
Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to the user being banned.
Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will be banned.
Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([IMG][/IMG]) image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to will be removed.
Members should post in a way which is consistent with “normal writing”. That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be banned.
Members should use an appropriate, descriptive subject when posting a new topic. Members are welcome to use the test forum for general “test purposes”. These may include checking signatures, testing a link or image, etc. (subject to previous points on decency, warez, etc.). #
Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering hosting services (charged and free), installation services, solicitation etc. Recruiting members for your own projects (moderators, designers, professional MOD work, etc.) is not permitted and is also considered spam. Users posting spam will be banned.
The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit, remove or put on moderation queue any post at any time. Please note that currently any very first post is automatically placed in the moderation queue and will be approved/disapproved according to the present Rules. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Moderators and not users.
The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to users being banned (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.
You may not link to warez, porn, racist or other similar hate sites.
