Site Terms & Rules
Registration to this forum is free! We do require that you abide by the basic rules and policies detailed below, and in participating adhere to our general guidelines as posted in the general forums. By posting in these forums, or continuing to post in these forums you are agreeing to the rules and guidelines outlined below.
Although the administrators and moderators of Forums will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review all messages or respond with immediacy until that material is brought to our attention. All messages express the views of the author, and neither Parallax Inc., nor Vanilla Forums (developers of this forum tool) will be held responsible for the content of any message posted on this site.
By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise in violation of any laws. The owners of Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any content item for any reason. You acknowledge that all material you post is made publicly accessible to anyone with an internet connection. You are free to remove your posted content yourself if you wish. Parallax is not obligated to remove your posted content at your request, and reserves the right to re-post content that you have removed.
While on-topic debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, profanity (or attempts to bypass profanity filters), insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
Please refrain from posting meaningless topics, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the equivalent. This includes using the forum as a type of blog or diary, which is not appropriate.
Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. Do not create multiple accounts in order to achieve higher post count; if we have reason to believe you have created a second account to bypass this rule one or both accounts will be banned and their posts may be removed.
Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum, email, activity messages, signatures, picture comments and private message systems to spam other members.
We also do not allow posts or links to sites that are sexual in nature or violate Parallax community standards. The moderators shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.
Be careful with what you upload. Do not upload any copyrighted material or content which may have virus.. The offending material will be removed and your account may be subject to moderation.
