HBF is under new ownership as of "04-01-2014". Please read and understand the following rules. The general outline of this forum will remain the same. Any and all vendors are welcome to advertise with the exception of clone manufactures. We would like to extend a welcome to everyone, lets please have some fun and keep it respectful.



Do not abuse the Moderators Abusing (cursing/belittling) our moderators will not be tolerated! They are not here for your whipping post, do not take your anger out on them. Our moderators work very hard to keep the forum clean and operating smooth. You will get ONE warning, if it continues you will be banned.




Keep foul or abusive language to a minimal - This is a family orientated forum, please respect that. Other wise expect your post to be deleted and possibly your account banned.



No personal attacks, be polite and patient - At one time or another we were new to this hobby, so please be kind to other new people in this forum and hobby. Also just because someone doesn’t answer your post within 5 minutes doesn’t mean everyone is ignoring you. It just means that someone with an answer hasn’t read your post yet. Be patient as more times then not, you will get an answer.
  • Any member exhibiting behavior that is viewed counter productive to promoting a friendly community may result in a temporary to permanent ban. This will include but is not limited to publicly ‘baiting’ or ‘antagonizing’ other users on the forum. ANY personal attacks will not be allowed in the public forums or on private messages.
No racial or other derogatory comments are allowed - HBF welcomes everyone of all colors, ethnicities and backgrounds. If you decide to participate in posting ANY racially or derogatory comments, images, videos, or audio - you will be banned for a total of two weeks, a second instance will result in being permanently banned from the site and will never be welcomed back.



No sexual references - This is a Family Site. Porn or other adult material is not welcome here. The internet is full of places to find adult material, R/C nor HPIBajaForum needs to be another place for that kind of material. (If you have to ask if it’s adult material more then likely it is and don’t post it). You will get one warning, posts will be deleted. See Infractions below.



Do not post PERSONAL INFORMATION (i.e. addresses, phone numbers, passwords, personal identification numbers, images) or any other information considered private without the express permission of the individual. You must respect the privacy of other members. HPIBajaForum has addressed privacy concerns by allowing users to set-up their accounts so that e-mail addresses may not be displayed to other users, but rather moderators and administrators only.



No SPAM:
  • Very short posts that do not add value to the current discussion.
  • Double posts.
  • Posts that obviously serve no purpose other than upping one’s post
    counts. This is up to the moderators to decide.
  • Posts like “XXX, I have a question for you” are considered spam.They should be done via private messaging.
  • Any other posts that we deem inappropriate for other readers.
  • Posts that contain just smilies or large amounts of smilies
No vague subjects - Don’t post a thread with the subject, “need help”, we know you need help, tell us a clue in the subject.




Keep threads related to the forums in which you are posting - For example, do NOT put For Sale posts in anyplace other then the Market Place forum. Failure to do so will result in moved or deleted threads.
  • Directly quoting or posting the content of HBF anywhere other than HBF may result in a temporary to permanent ban. This is a code of ‘ethics’ and an established trust.
Do not post in ALL CAPS!!! - Using ALL CAPS makes it hard to read, and it’s annoying. It is also considered “YELLING” while on the internet. SO PLEASE DO NOT YELL, this will only get your post locked or deleted.


NO cross posting - Do not post the same topic in more than one location


Use good grammar and spelling - If English isn’t your native language then please say so. Otherwise its very annoying and hard to read TeXt THat LoOkS LIkE ThIS. This isn’t a spelling bee, but please try your best at spelling.



Do NOT try to increase your post count with junk posts (aka post whoring) - Posting threads or replies with a three or four letter post is wasteful in many ways. Don’t do it! Posts in the Basement do not count towards your post count.



Do NOT create private threads - Example: Hey Johnny what’s your email address?, I have enabled Private Messages. Use them, not the forum!



For Sale Section - Please read the selling rules before posting items for sale. Selling Rules.



No Promotional Posts - There is to be no posting of commercial activity. This includes but not limited to posting banners, contests, sales, or request to have people visit your site. If you have a business or web site that you would like to promote then please Sign Up for advertising.
