Forum Rules
« on: 20 December 2010, 05:21:15 PM »
The following Rules/Guidelines will be strictly enforced by the owners/moderators of this forum. Failure to comply with these rules/regulations may result in the Ban of membership, email and IP access status. Please read and follow these rules in order to keep these forums open to the public. Thank You.

Disrespect to moderators or staff
Arguing with a moderator, sending a moderator threats via PM or email, or anything that can be interpreted as being blatantly disrespectful towards staff is grounds for immediate banning from the website.

Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling

Hate posts, racism and personal attacks will not be tolerated in these forums. Talking trash about another user or posting silly topics specifically to provoke a negative response from other users (aka trolling) or posting any threats will constitute a reason for banning.

Personal Information
You may not distribute private messages, email, etc. unless both parties have provided consent.

Buy, Sell, Trade
The site is not responsible for any stolen, lost, misrepresented or fraudulent posts or transactions on our website. This includes moderators, staff, employees, advertisers, partners, etc. If you Buy, Sell or trade on this website, you are responsible for doing the due diligence required to ensure a safe trade. This includes the hiring of a third party service to handle the trade, tracking numbers, proper insurance, etc. All claims of misrepresentation are "civil" in nature, and will need to be handled in your local small claims court. We will provide any supporting information ONCE A POLICE REPORT HAS BEEN FILED, until then, please be careful!

Please ensure your listing are noted properly, please read the rules in the Buy/Sale/Trade forums and abide by them.

Spam
Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages to gain more stars is highly frowned upon! This includes such things as party posts, chain letters, two-word "I agree" or "me too" responses, continually posting the same topic will more than likely result in LOSING post counts and/or bans. The practice of "Rick Rolling" will result in a consequence that is determined necessary. The posting of false and/or misleading links is grounds for suspension and depending on the content of the pages the misleading link goes to, a ban.

Impersonating Other Users / Accessing Another User's Account
You may not impersonate another forum member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited.

Signatures
Please be aware that Signatures are under the same rules as regular posts. Attacking people in a Signature is also against the rules. No Adult Content. Images used in signatures are to be less then Width of 600px, and height of 160px. Only ONE image is allowed in the signature, and it must be 50k or less for members.

Posting Huge Images / Fake Signature Pics
Please ensure all images and signatures attached to posts are kept as small in file size as possible or else the forums will slow down in speed.

Site Bans
If you log onto the Forums and receive a message that you have been banned, please submit an un-ban request and wait for a Forum moderator to get in touch with you. It is not acceptable to return to the boards under another username. If you do, your ban time most likely will be extended. You may not publicly complain about or demand a reason for another user's ban. Banned users have the responsibility of answering for themselves on their own. If you have an issue with a Ban, please PM a Moderator or the Forum Owner.

Profanity
Profanity is allowed on this forum, but do not abuse this privilege. Remember, this is a privately run website, if you go out of bounds, you will be told. If you think its to offensive, it is. Racial slurs are grounds for instant bans.

Money Making Schemes
Links to pyramid schemes, Money making schemes, or questionable 'Profit-per-Click' advertising sites are not allowed. Threads will be closed, and users may be banned.

Moderation
You may not re-edit a post that has already been edited by a moderator (a mod's decision is final). You may not bait, insult, flame, or otherwise abuse a moderator; mods are here to make the forum a better place for everyone. If you have a problem with the moderation, please contact that mod or the site staff with your concerns.

Questionable Content
These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. These issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense.

Posting links to graphic sites - either sexual, violent or containing illegal or invasive material will result in permanent bans.
