Guidelines

Please take a moment to review below the easy-to-follow guidelines that apply to this web site. We ask that you agree to follow these simple guidelines in an effort to make your experience, as well as that of the entire online community, a pleasant one.

Keep it friendly, legal and spam-free.

No inappropriate behaviour, images, or content will be permitted anywhere within the forums or galleries. All content and images used within the forums must be legal and suitable for under-18 audiences. Material that is or could be construed as pornographic, racist, homophobic, libelous or in bad taste is not acceptable on this web site and will not be tolerated. The web site’s staff will be the sole authority in deciding what does or does not violate this rule.

Be kind to one another.

Sharing your thoughts, jokes, experiences, opinions and beliefs is more than encouraged providing you do not do so in such a way that offends, insults, or otherwise disrupts the thoughts, experiences, opinions and beliefs of others within the community.

Protect your privacy - we cannot do this for you.

Members are urged to use common sense while using this web site, and should refrain from making public any material that jeopardises their own privacy or that of other users. You should never provide your phone number, credit card information, address (e-mail or postal), or any content that you do not want the public at large to have access to. Whether posted within the forums or within a private message ALL CONTENT AND INFORMATION THAT YOU POST SHOULD BE CONSIDERED OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND TREATED AS SUCH. We cannot guarantee the privacy of information posted anywhere within this web site.

User account abuse.

Please be aware that registering more than once on this web site is strictly forbidden as is logging into the web site using someone else's user account (regardless if permission has been granted to do so). If you have a problem with your user account or wish to have your account name changed then please just contact us.

Please provide attributions and respect copyright.

If the works of another are required to complete a thought of your own, please remember that you must have permission to post copyrighted works and that you should always give credit where credit is due. When you quote from a book or other printed material, please note the title, author, and page number if known. If you are quoting from a web site or other virtual media please remember to include the name of the author, the address of the web site and any other information that is appropriate. When quoting another individual within the forums you should always try to include their forum name and a link to their original comment if possible. When posting links to content such as music, films or software then please make sure you have the express permission of the copyright holder to do so. When a link is posted that looks to be of ambiguous veracity to the staff, it will be removed until clearance can be verified from the copyright holder.

Try to remain on topic.

Though we understand that many discussions will branch off into other discussions we ask that you do your best to keep each post "on topic" with the original post in the thread. If you do notice that the thread is starting to go into a different discussion please take the time to begin a new thread with the new topic, and to ensure that the new topic is continued in the appropriate forum. This will greatly increase the usefulness of the forums for those that need to search back in time.

Our right to remove, not remove, move, modify or split content.

We reserve the right to remove, not remove, move, modify or split any content (including, but not limited to threads, posts, and user accounts) at any time for any reason, without prior or post notification.

Any content found to be in violation of these guidelines will be removed immediately without notification. The user who posted the content may also be banned (temporarily, or permanently) if that action is deemed appropriate based on the situation.

If you believe that there is content on the web site which is in violation of these guidelines then please contact us or use the Report Post facility and we will look into the matter as quickly as possible.

Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
