For Reference: Registration Agreement
« on: October 10, 2008, 03:17:07 AM »
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

By posting on the Forum a Member grants the SGU Forum a non-exclusive license to publish, republish or reproduce their work, in its entirety or as the SGU Forum sees fit, in perpetuity.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

FORUM RULES AND POLICIES ARE EXPLAINED IN THE FORUM ADMINISTRATION SECTION.  IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THESE RULES AND POLICIES.

PLEASE TAKE CAREFUL NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE FROM THE TECHNICAL ADMINISTRATOR:

The registration process to this forum requires you to receive an email from this server.  This email address is sguadmin@skepchick.orgsguadmin@skepchick.org is not a physical mailbox, it is a redirect to my personal account.

If you use anti-spam measures that rely on an exchange of emails from those that email you, this registration step will fail.

The SGU admin email account (meaning sguadmin@skepchick.org) will never return emails. I  will not respond to your requests to email back a response for anti-spam measures, because the email you receive would not be the one that matches the challenged one in your spam program.  If you email the SGU admin account you will receive a response from my account, not the account you emailed.

And no, I am not going to jump through anyone's spam hoops for them to get their registration email.  Whitelist the email address of the forum account manually, because the sguadmin@skepchick.org account does not return emails.

The ability to email yourself a new password reset link has been disabled due to a malicious individual spamming the panel and myself with password reset functions.  If you need to reset your password, you will need to set up a secret question in your profile account information.  Your answer is highly suggested to be difficult to guess by dictionary brute force scripts.  This means you will need your answer to be much like a secure password (because in essence it is another password) using both upper and lower case, numbers, and special characters.  A length of longer than 15 characters is strongly recommended.  These settings are also strongly recommended for your forum password as well.
