|Guidelines for Posting (Updated 1/17/2008) |
Considering the real-time nature of this message board (MB), it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that while we do actively monitor the contents of posted messages, 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. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this MB or any entity associated with this MB. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by clicking the "Alert Moderator" button or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

We also reserve the right to ban your use of this MB if you are held in violation of any of the above rules or of the spirit of these Terms of Service. We will be the sole and final judge of any disciplinary actions taken with regard to the Terms of Service.
Signature and Avatar Policy
Due to the increasing number of large and bulky signatures on the board, and therefore, potentially longer page load time, we are implementing new guidelines for signature use. All signatures must take up no more than the following space:
Entire Signature Size: Should be no wider than 575 pixels wide and no taller than 150 pixels tall.
Entire Signature File Size: Should be less than 75 Kilobytes. To find out how large an image is, right click on it and it will show the file size.
Avatar Size: Should be 48 pixels wide and 48 pixels tall.
Avatar File Size: Should be less than 30 Kilobytes. To find out how large an image is, right click on it and it will show the file size.
If you signature / avatar does not meet these guidelines, the moderators of the site will erase or modify your signature / avatar.
