  • The Goalie Store Bulletin Board Rules and Regulations Page

    This Bulletin Board is made possible by The Goalie Store Inc.

    Mission Statement: The Goalie Store Bulletin Board is an open forum dedicated to all things goaltending. The purpose is to give goaltenders, coaches, parents and anyone interested a central meeting place for a free exchange of ideas, instructional tips, equipment reviews and questions, general goaltending and hockey conversation, as well as a place to buy and sell used equipment (free of charge). The Board is to be a welcoming environment for youth, novices at the position, and others who seek contact, experience, and advice from the goaltending community. The Goalie Store Bulletin Board welcomes individuals, as well as our peers in the equipment and instruction business to contribute and help advance the art of good goaltending.

    The Goalie Store Bulletin Board does NOT welcome any individual, (long or short term member) retail hockey store, equipment manufacturer, or goaltending instructor who joins with a different agenda, or who posts comments intended directly or indirectly to cause:

    Damage or Injury to this board
    Damage or Injury to individuals who participate on this board
    Damage or Injury to any equipment manufacturer, mask builder, mask painter, or any other hockey related company, or individual in such company.

    The Goalie Store Bulletin Board does NOT welcome any individual, (long or short term member) retail hockey store, equipment manufacturer, or goaltending instructor who joins with an agenda of self promotion, or who posts to solicit sales and business for personal gain.

    Any individual who is deemed to act in a way described above may be permanently banned from the B.B.. without notice or warning.

    Goalie Store Bulletin Board Rules of Conduct and expected membership standards

    The Following can and will be deemed unacceptable behavior on the Bulletin Board and can/will result in temporary suspension of posting privileges and/or permanent suspension:
    • The Posting of Pornography either directly on the board or by links.
    • Swearing
    • The posting of advertisements or links to advertisements for any hockey or non-hockey related item, service, or product.
    • Personal attacks on individual members or individuals that own or operate other hockey and non-hockey related business.
    • Behavior that refuses to cease and desist lines of topic, challenged, prohibited or banned by a moderator or administrator of The Bulletin Board.
    • Behavior meant to bait and inflame a topic challenged, prohibited or banned by a moderator or administrator of The Bulletin Board.
    • Behavior meant to demean, ridicule or discourage others (veterans or rookies) from feeling welcome to participate as an equal on The Goalie Store Bulletin Board OR tries to establish a “climate” contrary to that stated in the Mission Statement of The Goalie Store Bulletin Board.
    • Attacks on any equipment company’s products and or services that cross the line of fair, objective review and critique.

    Any complaints or problems that may arise from time to time should be addressed to me, not the moderators of the board. I prefer interaction by phone. I find it the most personal and quickest method to resolving conflicts. I reserve the right to add to the rules of conduct in the future as I see fit.

    Timberwoof says: I am not the owner of this BBS. I used to be a moderator; that's when, at the request of the owner, I posted these rules. But I'm not a moderator any more; I retired long ago. If you have questions, please ask the moderator of the specific forum. You can find out who that is by checking the sticky posts at the start of each forum.

    Thanks — Timberwoof, Old BBS Warhorse

    The following is ad outline of the advertising rules here on the Goalie Store bulletin board. If there are any questions, feel free to PM or e-mail for clarification.

    There are two types of advertising here on the board; professional advertising and personal advertising.

    Personal advertising is defined as gear for sale by an individual, and is limited to the classifieds section only. This includes both gear for sale and want-to-buy type advertising. Any blatant or subtle advertising of gear transactions outside of the classifieds forum will result in an infraction. Multiple infractions can result in short term bans from the board. In addition, members may not post gear for sale on other sites, including eBay, Craigslist, Kijiji, or Facebook groups in any general forum regardless of whether the gear is in the classifieds.

    Professional advertising is advertising by a company or individual advertising gear sales or services for a business. Professional advertising is further broken down into two types of professional advertising; banner ads and forum advertisers.

    Banner ads are the ads you see on the pages of the board, and are linked to the business website. Banner advertisers may not sell or promote their services or products in the general forums.

    Custom Forum advertisers: Custom forum advertisers have their own little store front on our site. Inside that store front they can do and say whatever they want (unless it is bashing of others, products, businesses).
    Custom forum advertisers can not soft sell or promote their services or products outside of their forums. Goalie Store moderators generally do not moderate content in the custom forums, with the exception of harassment, fighting, advertising and other rules infractions, or at the request of the forum owner.

    Regardless of their advertiser status, no manufacturer, retailer or other business entity may advertise or promote their services or business in the general forums. This includes photos of gear, promotions of sales and special events, announcements of new gear or products, posting of customers products, or responding to requests for information within any thread in the general forums.

    If you see posts in violation of the advertising rules, use the Report feature to notify the board management team of potential violations.
