You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.
You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.
You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.
Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
We will not guarantee the accuracy, validity, integrity or security status of any content on this website, and will accept no liability from any issues that may result from it. We do not scan all hosted files for viruses.
User posted content is out of our control unless we have known about the presence of it for at least one full week.
Accounts and your behaviour
Do not join this website more than once (hence creating multiple accounts). If you cannot remember your password, use the 'lost password' feature, which is available on the login page. If problems persist, contact the staff.
Do not pose as, or wilfully act as, a member of staff.
General posting/submission guidelines
Do not post any copyrighted material for which you have no right to do so.
Do not repeatedly use strong/harsh swearing or sexual references.
Do not be too sexually graphic. Do not link to or post pornography, and only mild and non-sexually motivated nudity is allowed.
Staff have the right to edit, censor, delete or otherwise modify any content message they feel is inapproriate, without any warning given to the poster.
Do not submit any content that you know to contain viruses or commonly exploited security holes.
Any content submitted to us, will not necessarily be removed by request. We are not bound to remove submitted content and anything submitted should be assumed to be staying on our servers, publicly accessible permanently. By submitting, you are aware of the consequences of this, and take responsibility of it, and may not at any time insist on content being withdrawn.
Do not try to bypass the word filter: filtered words are placed in the filter in accordance with guidelines, and obvious misspellings or equally obnoxious alternatives, only serve to work against the wishes of the staff.
Do not post spoilers (material that reveals information relating to the subject matter of this website before the majority of members have learnt it through the channels they would wish to) in your topic titles. If you wish to post spoilers inside a topic give good warning about their presence, or use the Comcode 'hide' tag.
Do not post a link to a website that contains material that would be in violation of the rules if posted directly on this website. Special exceptions may be given by the staff when clear warnings are put in place.
Do not incite illegal activity, either directly, or by educating with the obvious purpose to make it more achievable.
Do not spam this website:
* you must be moderately confident that anything posted will interest at least a minority of the members.
* you must not post material more than once unless there is good reason, from the point of view of other members.
Do not intentionally disrupt the enjoyment of this website by other users. 'Enjoyment' has a general meaning for the purposes of this rule - for example, robust argument in a debate forum would be considered 'enjoyable', as debators would wish for it.
This website is private properly and hence any form of censorship is allowed at the discretion of the staff - you agree not to consider this website a forum for free speech if the staff consider it breaks the rules.
Forum and Chat
Be respectful of the opinions of other members, and do not discrimate it based on nationality, sexuality, gender, religion or race. Do not flame or degrade other members. If you have a problem with another members actions, contact a member of staff.
Do not double post (post consecutively in a topic) on the forum unless…
* You have new information to add after several days since your previous post was made
* You are bumping a topic after several days of no replies
* You are quoting various posts, and feel the need to do so in separate posts
Do not complain in-topic about the subject being too far off-topic or otherwise breaking rules. Use the 'report post' feature to alert a member of staff instead. Leave it to staff to establish what is and is not acceptable posting.
In no circumstances may you use the chat rooms to start or continue sexually suggestive dialogue with any member under the age of consent (whichever age is highest between any geographic region where the hypothetical parties are located).
The feedback forum and page were created so members may contact staff on matters that require attention. Please make an extra effort to not go off-topic in these areas, and use the most appropriate channels when communicating with staff. Our staff must read every last post of feedback, so off-topic messages will annoy them.
Images in your signature should not exceed 50k in size, 468 pixels wide, or 110 pixels tall. For a guideline, this is about five lines of standard-sized text space. Text in your signature should also not exceed more than 5 lines of normal-sized text space.
Remember that a big signature is not always a good signature. Keep it nice and simple. Feel free to advertise your website if you wish, if the link to it does not itself break site rules.
For your own sake, avoid trying to use .bmp files as avatars - the system will not let you, because you should compress them to a more appropriate format, such as the .png format.
Avatars size is restricted by the system according to your usergroup.
Do not abuse the point system - every gift point transaction must be justifable to the staff, in both quantity and purpose.
You may not, unless explicitly given permission by a high-ranking member of staff, try to hack into this website. For the purpose of this rule, 'hacking' includes any technique designed to compromise the security or stability of the website.

The staff reserve the right to read any personal topics and posts placed on this website. Any form of conversation made through this website should be considered viewable by staff.
The staff reserve the right to ban any member who breaks any rule, whether the rule is agreed as broken by the alleged offender or not. No warning or explanations need be given.
The staff also reserve the right to change these rules at any time.
