THSCC Forum Rules and User Agreement

(1) Registration Terms
a. To register for this forum, you must be a member in good standing of THSCC. Once we verify your membership status we will activate your account.
b. Your user name must be your first name and last name, such as "JohnSmith" or "John Smith". If you do not register using your real first name and last name, your account may be deleted.
c. This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

(2) Forum Policies
a. Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting.
b. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated. You agree to not post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented text, images, links or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Postings of this type will not be tolerated. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts are recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.
c. While the Administrators and Moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not THSCC, the Administrators, Moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.
d. Members are expected to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc.
e. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. Whenever possible, place a link to your image instead of using inline images.
f. The Administrators and Moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to the Administrators and Moderators.
g. The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.

(3) Signatures
a. Please keep signatures as compact as possible.
b. Signature content is subject to the same rules as posts. No offensive content, no inline images, etc.
c. Links are permitted in signatures.

(4) Avatars
a. Users are permitted to link to their own image (subject to previous points on misuse of bandwidth). User defined avatars are to be no larger than 80 pixels square, and may not exceed 6KB in file size and have a consistently high availability (i.e. links to images on slow servers or those prone to failure may be removed).
b. Avatars are subject to the same rules as posts. No offensive content, etc.

(5) Moderators and Administrators
a. Moderators and Administrators are Members who have the ability to police and enforce the rules and regulations of the forum.
b. Moderators and Administrators will subject their own posts to the same posting procedures as the other readers of the group, with the possible exception of posts of an administrative nature.
c. Moderators and Administrators will not use their role as a platform for editorializing.
d. Moderators and Administrators that do not actively participate on a regular basis in their assigned role will lose their special status and revert to that of a Member.

(6) Policing
a. THSCC forum generally operates a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.
b. Extreme violations of the rules may result in an immediate temporary or permanent ban.
c. Arguing with team members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.
d. Users who feel they have been unfairly warned or banned are welcome to contact the Administrators or the appropriate THSCC club officers. If they feel you were treated badly they remove a warning or ban.
e. Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account to evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.
f. An exception to the three strike rule applies when users contact team members personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.
g. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them.
