Have a friend who wants to join?


Recommended Posts

If you know someone interested in joining IH, please copy and paste this list of rules to save them some time.

First: please take a moment to write down your password for this forum. If you misplace it there is a system in place for you to find it, but neither I nor the mods can see your password, so we cannot supply it to you. Thanks. 

If you receive this list as an applicant to join, you must email me agreeing to the rules.


To members and those asking to join ironhistory:  Do not post until you understand the following rules- if you post, it is assumed you have read, understood, and have agreed to abide by these rules, and to accept their meanings, and to abide by the consequences of violating the rules.
 

I would ask where the new member lives: state and city, or country and city, and how you heard about IH- just for my info.

1. You must register under your real name. No code names. Anyone joining under a name which is known or famous may be asked privately to verify that identity so that no masquerade posts are presented on ironhistory.com. If no co-operation is forthcoming the person will not gain membership.

2.This website has limited borders- we deal with history. If you have a suggestion for improving the forums, PM or email the mods or Joe- do not debate in the public forums any changes in what you feel should be included or excluded unless asked to do so. The Off-Topics section does not include politics, religion, or porn, which are not welcome here.

3. Attack an argument as fiercely as you wish, but not the person making the argument. Do not make your comments personal.

4. Discussion of training methods only in Training Talk. No discussion of steroids or other drugs unless you have proof- not if you have guesses, and only in the Drug Talk section. Some old posts remain which are carry-overs from the unfortunate three times when such talk was briefly allowed, but those posts should illustrate why drug talk is currently restricted.

5. We are after the truth regarding the subjects and persons we cover. We are interested in dates/places/lifts/biographies/ and other details about the history of strength.

6. We do not cover all aspects of the iron game. There are other forums that cover the aspects that we ignore, so if you wish to discuss those aspects, go to those sites.

7. Zero tolerance for trolls and troublemakers.

8. No profanity or revealing nudity or snide remarks about anyone. And yes, 'DAMN' and 'HELL' and 'SHIT' are considered curse words here. The thinking is that if we set the standard high then other more extreme words will not follow. So when you are warned- if you decide to test this rule- do not consider that we are threatening you. We are simply enforcing the rule. If you somehow cannot avoid cursing, good luck elsewhere because this forum closed to you.

9. Training techniques may be discussed here. Share your training ideas, but do not get into debates about whether 5 sets of 5 is better than 5 sets of 6. Keep in mind what works for you now may not be the final answer (even for you). Have fun!

10. If a member continues to post whether by content or attitude, so as to be judged by the moderators as intending to cause trouble on the forums, that member may be dismissed.

11.  Moderators will not become involved in removing your appropriate posts or images, so please post only what you intend to have remain as part of this site. In other words, if you post it, it stays here even if you choose to leave or are removed.

13. To remain a member here see Rules 1 through 12. We do not suspend members here- either you are a member in good standing, or you leave. You may be warned via PM, or in the relevant post, depending on the violation, then if you choose not to comply, goodbye. People so removed need not bother trying to re-join. If you choose to keep your PM box full, you will not be able to receive the warning; your call, but I will not respond to emails regarding your status here.

14. Keep in mind that this is a private website, and that your presence here is subject to change without notice, without given reason, without discussion, and usually without appeal. None of this concerns good members, only troublemakers.

15. If you decide to join I will need your email address. Since Bill is not retired, and I am not always online, it may take a day or so to approve you- or it may take only minutes.

The usual suspect is now claiming they are his friends.

I have no firends.  However, when I was attending school, I had class.  Then upon leaving, I had no class. :-)

So if you know someone who wants to join, simply copy and paste the lead post of rules and send it to that person. If they are interested, they can contact me.

Thank you.

This is working well. So far two new members have joined, each at the suggestion of a current member.
