Terms of Use

Welcome to BitSpice Forums!

In an effort to maintain the integrity of this site and to provide a comfortable environment for people to communicate, we ask that you please follow these guidelines when posting on this site. These guidelines are global and apply to every area of this site. Posts that violate these guidelines are routinely removed. We reserve the right to close the accounts of persistent violators of these rules of conduct at any time and without warning. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of BitSpice Forums nor its developers will be held responsible for the content of any message. Most of the guidelines are common sense and basic courtesy. The general template for this terms of use document was taken from here.

General Posting Guidelines: When posting a new topic, please select the forum that best relates to the subject matter of your topic. If you are unsure, contact the admins.

Language: All posts must be in English. Posts in other languages will be deleted. Pay reasonable attention to written English communication standards. This includes the use of proper grammatical structure, punctuation, capitalization, spacing, and spelling.

Multiple Posting: Posting the same topic across multiple forums or multiple threads is considered spamming and is not allowed. (No cross-posting.)

Thread hijacks and off-topic posts: Do not hijack an existing thread with off-topic comments or questions--start a new thread. Any off-topic posts will be deleted or moved to an appropriate forum per administrator or mentor discretion.

Fonts: When posting a new topic do not use the CAPS lock (all-CAPS), bold, oversized, non-standard, or brightly colored fonts, or any combination thereof. They are hard to read and are considered yelling. When replying in an existing topic it is fine to use CAPS or bold to highlight main points.

Replying to a Post: When replying to a post, please use the correct button! If you wish to quote a previous post in your reply, use the "Quote" button; if you do not, use the new reply section at the bottom. Do not use the "Flag" button to reply to a post; this sends a message to the moderators, and is normally used only to report spam or other posts that you think violate the Guidelines.

Quoting a Post: When you quote from a post, please delete large sections that are not directly relevant to your response, to make reading easier, but do not distort the original poster's meaning in the process. You may add colors or change the font of words or phrases for emphasis, provided that you state explicitly that you have done so. Other forms of purposeful misquoting are dishonest and are not permitted.

Personal Information: Refrain from disclosing personal information about yourself or third parties, information such as hometown, real name, email address, etc. The staff may edit out such information if posted. Also, do not post personal communications, such as emails or conversations, with third parties.

Language and Attitude: Foul or hostile language will not be tolerated on BitSpice Forums. This includes profanity, obscenity, or obvious indecent language; direct personal attacks or insults; snide remarks or phrases that appear to be an attempt to "put down" another member; and other indirect attacks on a member's character or motives. Please treat all members with respect, even if you do not agree with them. If you feel that you have been attacked, and the moderators or mentors have not yet gotten around to doing something about it, please report it using the "Report" button.

Attachments and Links: Images, material or links to images and or material whether real, satirical or implied depicting obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, violent, abusive, insulting, or threatening in nature are not permitted on this bulletin board. This includes Gifs or cartoons.

Advertising & Spam: Advertising for personal gain of any kind is not permitted in any forum. Repeat offenders and commercial spam will result in an immediate ban.

Reporting Violations: If you witness a posting that violates these guidelines, please click the "Flag" button, which can be found on the bottom left of the post. This will send a message to the moderators, who will take action as they deem appropriate. BitSpice Forums cannot guarantee that any action will be taken as a result of your request.

Miscellaneous

All messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of the forum owners. Members grant BitSpice Forums non-exclusive rights for the content they post. The owners of BitSpice Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy goes for member profile information as well.

Deleting Accounts: Please do not ask us to delete your account. If you no longer want to participate in BitSpice Forums, simply stop posting. If you need to be restrained from posting here, we can ban you, but this will not remove your posts or your profile.

Deleting Posts: Normally, we remove or edit posts only if they violate these Guidelines. You should consider your posts and threads as permanently available for everyone's benefit. If you want us to make an exception (e.g. a question that has not yet received any responses, or a post that contains personal identifying information), you may use the Flag button on the post to request action.

Private Messages (PMs): If exclusively personal contact is needed, use the Private Message system. The administrator reserves the right to, and can, view all private messages. Use of this Forum and your comments is not a right. It is a privilege granted you by BitSpice Forums under the terms of this agreement and can be revoked at any time without warning. In accordance with the privilege of using this Forum granted you by BitSpice Forums, we request that you abide by the terms and conditions of our Rules of Conduct when using the Forum. We reserve the right to change the Rules of Conduct at any time.

Changes to terms and conditions

BitSpice Forums may make changes to the terms of this agreement on this site. You agree to periodically review this agreement to be aware of any such revisions. Should the revision be unacceptable to you, you agree to stop accessing this site.
