The Message Board/User Gallery guidelines have been updated. They can be found at:
This is what has been added:
Do not post articles, pictures or other content that you do not
have permission to post from the copyright holder.
Your User Gallery may not infringe or violate the trademark,
copyright, trade secret, patent or intellectual property of
another party. The User Gallery vehicle listing is intended to
showcase Ford trucks, vans and suvs ONLY. Any photo not of your
Ford truck, suv or van must be hidden from the gallery list and
may only be used for message board postings and Club FTE web
sites. Use of the photo galleries for image storage for outside
web pages is prohibited.
FTE sells shop manuals and wiring diagrams. We have a staff to pay in order to keep the doors open for the web site. Our shop manuals and diagrams are licensed Ford reproductions and when someone gives them away, or significant portions of them, they are not only removing the incentive to buy them but also doing it on our dime (ie, bandwidth).
