Rules

Postby Rycher » Thu Mar 15, 2007 8:06 pm

We live by words online, so we don't allow obscene, racist or sexually explicit language. Personal attacks are not permitted. We reserve the right to remove posts that are abusive, hateful, or defame or insult anyone.

It is illegal to harass or threaten anyone. We take threats, harassment and stalking very seriously. Posts that might be construed as such may be deleted and made available to the proper law enforcement officials. Trolling, or creating posts specifically designed to cause problems on the forums, will be considered harassment and is not permitted.

You may not use avatars, banners or signatures that are offensive, that contain sexually explicit images or language, or that suggest illegal activities. You may not take another member’s photographic image and use it as your own or otherwise attempt to impersonate or imitate another member.

You must respect the privacy of individuals. This means no posting of phone numbers, addresses, social security numbers or any other private information. We discourage users from posting such information even about themselves, as we cannot control how that information may be used beyond our message board.

Our message board does not allow spamming. Good manners online means that you don't post the same note more than once, whether it’s the same forum or a different forum (cross-posting). If your topic fits more than one forum category, choose the most appropriate. We also do not allow flooding of the message board with new topics within a short duration of time.

Remember when posting that minors ( persons under the age of 18 ) have access to this site. Please use consideration when posting. Our message board is a PG-13 environment.

Attacking or disrespecting the club, administrators and/or moderators will not be tolerated. Warning to this effect will only be given once. The 2nd time will result in a 30 day cooling off period.

Challenges to administrative decisions have no place on the board. If you have an issue with any administrative action, it should be directed privately to the administrator.

The administration reserves the right to limit discussion of disciplinary actions to those members who are involved.

We reserve the right to add, change or remove any information in the Terms of Service at any given time.

When modifications are made to the Terms of Service, this does not erase history of administrative action.

You participate at your own risk on the message boards. You take responsibility for postings under your username and use the information provided here at your own risk. Please keep these rules in mind as you use our message board.

Signatures, in text format, cannot be more than 4 lines. Signatures are subject to the same guidelines as the rest of the content on the message board, this includes obscene or pornographic images.



Enforcement of our policies:

Moving of Posts: Support Forum Team members and Administrators will move threads to the most appropriate forum without notice. Please take extra care to be sure that your posts are in the most appropriate forum and don’t rely on admin to do this for you.

Closing and Deleting Threads: We reserve the right to close or remove any thread that is deemed inappropriate. The discretion to do so is solely ours.

Dispute Resolution: If you are experiencing a problem on the message board and you feel that you cannot resolve the problems by any means available to you, we invite you to contact either a Forum Support Team member or an Administrator via PM or email.

Disciplinary Procedures: There are several levels of disciplinary procedures that may be invoked when a member violates our Terms of Service .

1. 1st offense: Warning by the moderators/administrator.
2. 2nd offense: 30 day cooling off period.
3. 3rd offense: Access to the message board is denied permanently.

Members who try to test any or all of these rules will be considered in violation.

Thanks for participating.
