Welcome to the YoYoExpert.com forums!

There are a variety of topics and discussions going on, and a great number of yo-yo players of all skill levels available to guide one another as they learn and trade tricks.

Lets make this simple:

Profanity is not allowed. Any post containing profanity of any kind will be edited or deleted.
Swearing and cursing are the most commonly thought of forms of profanity. However, this list also includes negative remarks based on any of the following:
    * Swearing/Cursing
    * Race
    * Sexual Preference
    * Gender
    * Creed or Beliefs
    * Religion
    * Intelligence
    * Political statements (updated 3/11/2016)

This includes items in avatars or signatures.

Partially edited profanity such as "fluck", "beyotch", "f--k", fah-q, MF'er and "di**" is also unacceptable. Attempting to circumvent this rule using abbreviations, acronyms, or other obvious representations of unacceptable language will not be tolerated.

New rule update. (5/15/2014)
One Account Per Person - Should be self explanatory. Members are allowed only one account.

New rule update. (9/14/2013)
Discussion of religion, politics, or sexual preference is outside the realm of this forum and should be avoided.

Internet Slang is not allowed.  This includes posts in all caps. Any post containing internet slang will be edited or deleted.

We need to try and keep these forums as easy to read and understand as possible.  Improper grammar that does not meet the basic standards of the English language is not allowed. This would include proper capitalization, punctuation, spelling and spacing. Any post containing improper grammar will be edited or deleted.

New rule update. (6/9/2013)
Please use the English language in your posts here so we know what you are asking about or saying. We can't help you if we don't understand your posts.

Note: We do realize that we have an international community and English is not everyone's primary language. We ask that you simply try your best and you should have no issues.

Do not refer to or post links to any on-line store that sells yoyo's. If you feel that someone needs this link or someone is asking for it please PM them the link.

This includes links to their forums.

Please take note of where the picture you are posting is from. Don't post product pictures from any other store regardless if we sell that particular brand of yoyo or not. Even if we don't carry it, who's to say we aren't trying to get them. There are also copyright and intellectual property rights involved.

Please do not beg for yoyos or other items here. It's impolite.

If you have a problem with a decision from a moderator or administrator, You need to PM that person and discuss it with maturity. We do things for a reason. We don't lock threads for fun. Please keep that in mind if your thread gets locked.

We have a lot of people trying to play moderator. While your intentions may be good, it makes you look like a not so pleasant person when telling someone they posted in the wrong section. A simple way to do this is to just report it to a moderator by using the report button on every post. Just leave a message as to why you reported it and we can move it or fix it for you with no one looking mean.

Thank you very much.

Also another thing has come to my attention that people are cluttering threads with thank you's.

This is easily taken care of by hitting the thank you button at the bottom of the post that you want to thank. You can even thank someone a few posts above yours. That person will see that you have thanked then under their post. 

Please use this feature. It wasn't added for fun or to take up space. It is a great too that needs t be utilized.

Thanks

Accounts.

It has come to my attention that there are a few people out there with more than one account. If you do please choose ONE and delete all the others. If you don't you may be subject to a ban.

Please Please pay attention to the date of the thread you are getting ready to post in. If you look in the archives or even just back a few months you shouldn't bring that post back. By that time it's ok to start a new thread if you can't find the information you need. Please don't bring back an old thread like that with just a comment on the subject.

New forum rule. Andre, the admins and mods have come to agree that the My little pony pics and references have no place here. We will allow avatars only.
Breaking of this rule will resort in a warning then a ban if you do not heed the warning.

Rule change.

We had a rule about posting links to other stores. While that was ok for the time, things have changed.

We will no longer allow links to any store that sells yoyo's. If you feel that someone needs this link or someone is asking for it please PM them the link.

The following clarification has been added to the forum rules:

Partially edited profanity such as "fluck", "beyotch", "f--k", fah-q, MF'er and "di**" is also unacceptable. Attempting to circumvent this rule using abbreviations, acronyms, or other obvious representations of unacceptable language will not be tolerated.

Actually it's not new, just a policy that's never been in writing. Now it is...
