The Volunteer Moderators Thank You!
Controversy is time consuming and stressful, so the mods thank you for keeping things civil and friendly and by avoiding the use of 'snark' and hot-button issues. Don't forget: they are donating their time on the member's behalf.
• Remember: posting here is a privilege, not a right.
• Commenters who disparage other members will be banned without notice. This includes comments such as "Forum_Member, you are an idiot."
• If you enjoy employing vulgarity or abuse you should take your business elsewhere.
• No "trolling." Threads that are designed to start disputes are not allowed.Choose your words carefully, so they can't be construed in such as way as to be confused with trolling. If you see trolling, use the report button to alert a moderator.
• No Illegal content.
• No foul language. We are trying to maintain a friendly, family environment and such language is not appropriate or necessary. This includes posting curse words that are deliberately misspelled or have special characters inserted in them to avoid the bad word filter.
• No rude or abusive language allowed, including flame wars. Do not trash, denigrate, or malign another forum or site. Do not drag your board wars over to this site or attempt to use this site as a staging point to start trouble on other sites.
• Don’t post pornography or nudity here. It will be removed. Don't ask us to precisely define either of these. It's up to the mods discretion. We have a worldwide member base and prefer not to spend time and effort debating the subject. The mods are volunteers, so your understanding is much appreciated.
• Do not post or link to content containing graphic depictions of serious injury or death to people or animals. Any posts showing or describing someone or an animal being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated will not be tolerated.
• We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. Again, disagreement is welcomed but abuse isn't. Any posts which attack or demean a member or group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation will be removed.
• Refrain from posts concerning politics, civil liberties issues, law enforcement issues and/or religion.
• Actions such as predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts, crimes, or to violate the Terms of Service are taken very seriously. Anyone caught doing these activities may be permanently banned from and may be reported to law enforcement.
• Unsolicited posts by companies and/or individuals promoting themselves, a website, or a product are not allowed. Please email info (at) fujix-forum.com for information on how to become an advertiser.
• Posting topics with links to your personal blog is acceptable, as long as there is some content in the topic. This means discussion text and/or photos. Topics which consist of simple invitations to visit your blog should be posted in the Personal Blog forum. Mods will move your topic here if you place it in some other forum.
• Do not reopen threads pertaining to subjects that have been previously closed.
• Do not post the same or similar thread in multiple forums.
• Select the forum best suited for the topic and post it there. Your topic may be moved, without notice, to a more appropriate forum if it is miscategorized.
• Please link or attach no more than 2 images in the first post of a new thread. If you want to post additional images, put them into a reply.
• Post classified ads in the classified section only. Do not link or post about a classified in other threads. The forum is not a party to any transaction; use discretion and protect yourself accordingly.
• Photographs should be posted in the appropriate forums under the Photo Sharing category by either -a- embedding links that will display the picture directly in the topic; -b- attaching images to the post and using the “add to post” feature; or -c- by posting pictures into the forum's gallery and linking from there. Photos that are posted in the incorrect forum will be moved by a mod to the most appropriate forum.
• Topics that consist of links to photos to be viewed on an external website or blog will be moved to the Personal Blogs forum. To prevent this, embed your images in the topic; see #14.
• We do not allow anyone to be registered under more than one member name. If you lost your login and re-registered, notify a mod so the accounts can be merged.
• Avatars of your own choosing are allowed as long as they are tasteful in content, and conform to the rules above. Avatars should be used to express your likes, loves, and individuality, but there are limits. Avatars should not make bigoted personal, religious, or political statements. Any avatar that is considered objectionable is subject to being edited without notice.
• Signature lines fall under the same rules as avatars.
• All the same rules listed above apply to the posting of pictures and videos. This includes content with language that would normally be censored by our bad word filter, if it were typed out. This also includes using videos for self-promotion, whether you are promoting yourself, your products, or your videos themselves.
Everyone is welcome to socialize here and express their opinions, but we expect anyone that chooses to post to do so within the confines of the posting rules above.
This site reserves the right to close, edit, or remove any User Submission, posting, or thread that violates the rules listed here, or for any other reason, at the sole discretion of the forum, without notice. Anyone that repeatedly violates the rules will not be allowed to participate here. You can disagree with someone, just do so like an adult.
Above all else, we expect people to be treated with respect!
