Site Rules
« on: May 17, 2012, 09:31:08 AM »
Rules

1) You may discuss any topic you wish, but keep it polite. There will be no tolerance for any kind of bickering or feuds...

2) Please note the forum's Terms of Use: URL to Follow


In order to maintain the forum and be able to provide useful information therein, we must enforce certain standards.  Please understand that this site is a privately run board, and all rules are enforced at our discretion.  Users who do not follow these guidelines may find their access to a forum revoked -- possibly permanently.

  • Stay on topic.  When replying to a thread, make sure to stay on the topic of the thread you're posting to.  All of our forums are designated for specific uses so it's good to make sure you are in the right place when posting.  Always be sure to read a forum's posted rules before using it.
  • Be constructive.  If someone is asking for help, only reply to them if you actually can provide help.  If making or replying to suggestions and requests, try to make criticisms constructive and offer alternatives.
  • Only quote relevant text.  Quotes are useful for reminding others of context but should always be edited down so that entire posts are not reproduced within the same thread.
  • Respect the Moderators.  The Moderators spend their spare time to assist and deserve no less than simple respect for their efforts in keeping things running.
  • Be civil.  Users are welcome to engage in challenging and spirited debate with other users but rudeness, name-calling, disrespect, and personal insults will not be tolerated, whether from an instigator or from anyone who feels they must respond to instigation.
  • Do not flame.  Inflammatory comments are not appropriate.
  • Do not troll.  Trolling is posting in order to provoke others (to lure them to flame or rant) or simply to produce a lot of responses.
  • Do not spam or cross-post.  Spamming is posting the same thing several times, or posting without any real content.  Cross-posting is posting the same content in more than one thread.
  • Do not argue.  Taking a personal conflict to the public forums is not allowed.  Those who are not involved should not have to see it. That's what Private Messages are for!
  • Do not use profanity.  Please do not use foul language and profanity in your posts -- and this includes trying to mask such language by substituting letters or symbols.  We've started a tradition of substituting fruits and pastries for choice words, which is permitted within reason, you fruit cake! ;D
  • Do not redistribute copyrighted material.  Links should not be provided anywhere on the forum to illegal copies of protected materials.
If you have any problems with a post, or if you have questions as to why a thread was closed or a post removed please contact a Moderator.

SPAM in the Profiles and Signatures
« Reply #1 on: June 16, 2012, 11:08:40 AM »
Oh yes, I forgot to mention that spam in anyone's profiles is grounds for immediate banishment..!

What is it that we consider spam? If you post a link in your profile or signatures that is NOT related to Lenormand, Astrology, the Occult in any way (like: Buy Gucci Watches here..!), we will likely not offer any warnings. Of course, exceptions might be made for users that have been contributing actively on the forum, but with all the Spammers we've encountered over the month of May, we're not so lenient any more. ;)

Registration Agreement
« Reply #2 on: June 25, 2012, 07:10:45 PM »
For those of you that wish to read the Registration Agreement that you accepted when you initially created your accounts, it is now included here for your reference:

Quote
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. 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. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

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.

The Learn Lenormand Forum administration reserves the right to delete, edit, close or move any thread or post at any time, at our discretion. Furthermore, by posting on the Learn Lenormand Forum, you give permission to the Learn Lenormand Forum to reproduce your posts in digital format; for example, when managing threads and posts or copying the database to another server.

Requests for mass post deletion will be denied in the interests of maintaining thread integrity. Deletion of individual posts will be handled at the discretion of administration and/or moderators.

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.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

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.

-----

The above Forum Rules are intended to be a general guide, and are not exhaustive. We reserve the right to change these rules at any time, and to take actions in the interest of Forum to remove disruptive members and/or posts.
