Post by FISH CRAZY on Thu Dec 19, 2013 5:23 pm









FORUM & CHAT BOX RULES ARE THE SAME ~ MEMBERS RESPONSIBILITY

This is a family friendly forum, and we intend to keep it that way.

Aquarium Phantasies / Fish Crazy Aquatics forum moderators will decide what is an appropriate post for this forum and what is not and will delete or edit posts as necessary

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 category you insult. Aquarium Phantasies / Fish Crazy Aquatics is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!

User Names, Avatars or Signatures containing anything obscene, vulgar or sexually-explicit or of a sexual nature or anything else deemed inappropriate for a family forum Profanity 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 Aquarium Phantasies / Fish Crazy Aquatics. It also causes thread's to go off topic, and most importantly, it hurts the person being flamed. The victim 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 Aquarium Phantasies / Fish Crazy Aquatics. If you have done something wrong, please edit your post and tone it down before reposting. To edit a post, click the "Edit" button at the top right side of the post.

Additionally, by having the minimum requirement of posts and days,  we hope to protect members by reducing the numbers of quick-sale scam artists and repeated commercial-only entities who are only interested in making a quick bucks out of this forum.

No commercial listings will be allowed- If you are repeatedly trading or selling new equipment, have multiples of the same new item(s), a revolving thread where the list of fish is constantly changing, or being able to "get anything" a poster may ask for is a sure-fire way to have your post removed as "commercial" and possibly banned from the site.

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 any post that go against forum rules.

Amendment 3 - Harassing 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.
