FORUM RULES

Post by smoggs on 6/11/2011, 10:01

No Hacking - This should go without saying, but you are not permitted to hack the board. Guessing someone else's password and succeeding counts as hacking.

No Discrimination - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, or whether they are gay or straight. This is worse than flaming, because it also hurts other members of the board who fall into the catagory you insult. The Aquarium is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!

No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. The worst kind of bullying is where new members are picked on. This hurts the member as well as the board.

No Flaming - Flaming harms the nice atmosphere of The Aquarium. It also causes thread's to go off topic, and most importantly, it hurts the person being flamed. The victom may defend themselves against any accusations made to them, but may not make any additional accusations to the flamer (which also counts as flaming).

No Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on The Aquarium. If you have done something wrong, please edit your post and tone it down before reposting. To edit a post, click the "Edit" button right below it.

No Advertising - You are not permitted to make money using The Aquarium. You are not allowed to PM or use the member list to obtain Instant Messenging screennames to harrass people to purchase a product from you. All sale items must be advertised on the forum.

Personal Information - Members are requested not to post addresses or phone numbers on the open forum .... This is to protect yourself as the posts are viewable by all, please keep this information to private message.

Amendment 1 - There are no excuses for breaking the rules. It doesn't matter if you were angry at the time and weren't thinking straight. It doesn't matter if you were only kidding around. If you break a rule, it does the same damage, regardless of your reasons for breaking it, and you will be punished all the same.

Amendment 2 - Site administration and moderators reserve the right to edit or delete post that go against forum rules.

Amendment 3 - Harrassing the administration about punishments is not allowed. The admins are only trying to do their job, and many times they have to make difficult decisions. You may post your opinion in the thread that announces the punishment, so long as you do not flame anyone. If this thread gets out of hand, it will be closed, and you may not complain elsewhere on the board, or by other means including, but not limited to: private messages, instant messaging programs, email, telephone calls, and house visits. You also may not make threats against administrators (or other members for that matter...).

Amendment 4 - Any members that leave the forum by choice have 3 days grace to return and inform admin. otherwise there account will be deactivated then if they want to return after that they must ask admin

Please also note - The Aquarium accept no responsability for any sales items advertised on the forum, please use your own judgement.


Please be aware we operate a 3 strike policy on The Aquarium for members who go against the rules, your IP will be blocked !

latest update to classified rules is:
while we would prefer you not to include your telephone numbers in adverts it is understandable for you to wish to do so, therefore this will be permissible with the permission of a mod or admin
HOWEVER:- THIS IS YOUR CHOICE NOT OURS!
do not expect the forum and/or the mod and admin team to accept any responsibility for the consequences of this choice.
if you then end up with lunatic/nuisance calls at all hours of the day and night the only person to blame is .. YOU

HOWEVER AT NO TIME MUST ANY ADDRESSES BE PUBLISHED IN OPEN FORUM AND AS SUCH THEY MUST BE GIVEN ONLY IN PM OR TELEPHONE CALLS/TEXTS
NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE PERMITTED TO THIS RULE AND ANY OFFENDING POSTS MAY BE EDITED AND/OR REMOVED BY ADMIN/MOD TEAM WITHOUT CONSULTATION OR RECOURSE BY THE MEMBER(S) INVOLVED
