It's unfortunate that we have to put rules in place but since there are people out there who thrive on creating chaos, we are forced have rules.

1. No trolls. Creating chaos will not be allowed, we will not tolerate it and you will be permanently banned. If have come here to cause problems, then we invite you to leave now.

2. No spamming. This absolutely, positively will not be tolerated and will result in instant removal of your account and permanent banning.

3. No flaming. Since we are all unique individuals, we will have unique points of view. This means we may not agree with each other but we must be tolerant of those views. Do not bring an argument from another forum here it will not be tolerated.

4. No hate. Any defamatory comments aimed at people of different creeds, religions, races, etc. will not be tolerated. Your post will be deleted, you will be put on probation* and if it happens a second time, your account will be deleted.

5. No ****. Even though we are adults and deal with adult issues, we will not tolerate pornographic photos, links to websites, videos, or other sexually explicit material. This includes written material. Posts containing the previously mentioned material will be deleted, your account will be deleted and membership permanently banned.

6. No pirated material. Movies, music, software and links to this type of material are prohibited. This includes copying material from another website and posting it with out the consent of the author. Anyone posting this material will be placed on probation* and if they post again, they will have their account suspended indefinitely.

7. Never post personal information about you or any one else on this forum. It will be removed and you could be placed on probation*.

8. Please be curtious and use real English and not text speak.

9. Please do not use all capital letters. It looks like you are shouting and itís rude.

10. You may upload avatars and signatures to this forum but they are limited to 100 x 100 pixels. This is to ensure that the pages donít get bogged down and load slowly for those still on dial-up servers.

11. External links must be approved by a Moderator or Admin first. This is a necessary step to protect you and this forum against spammers.

12. This forum has a strict, no badgering policy for ĎMod Jobsí. Moderators are chosen based on conduct, not the amount of posts. If we require more moderators, we will ask.

13. No selling of illegal items such as, but not limited to: guns, knives, swords, drugs or any other item that is deemed illegal by law. Doing so is not only against MyFreeForum Terms And Conditions , it will result in having the post removed, the account deleted/banned and the information will be turned over to the proper authorities.

14. Complaints. If you have a problem with this forum or another member please send a pm to Admin. We would prefer to handle things privately and diplomatically. When corresponding, please be as clear as possible, use proper English and, if you are able to, provide proof of your complaint. Remember, we are adults and Admin is not here to baby-sit so make sure it is a legitimate complaint.

*Probation

If you are put on probation, you will be notified via pm and email as to the severity of probation and you will be given the opportunity to dispute the decision. Being put on probation means that one of the following will apply:

1. Your activities here will be closely monitored for an undetermined period of time at the discretion of Admin.

2. You will be suspended for one week and your activities will be monitored for an undetermined amount of time at the discretion of Admin.

3. Your account will be deleted and you will be permanently banned.


These rules were created to keep this a safe place for people to gather, share information, learn and have fun. The typical forum poster will not find these rules to be a bother and won't even notice them. They are aimed at individuals that contribute only discord and they will be dealt with appropriately.

Thank you for reading this list and enjoy your stay.
