Rules & Guidelines

Post  Steve ( Admin ) on Mon Jan 16, 2012 3:57 am

The L.E.P Paranormal Forums were created as a family friendly location to share paranormal ideas and experiences so we ask all of our members to PLEASE follow these rules and guidelines:

User Names and Email Addresses:

User names may not include email address, full names, a website, name of organization, or profanity. User names must be English and consist of an actual word. Names such as 'Prymortia' or 'Uffermorf' will be considered spam bots and the account will not be approved.


Community Behavior:

Personal attacks, name calling, flame wars and insulting will not be tolerated. It is perfectly acceptable to disagree with one another and your free to post your own viewpoints on matters discussed in the forums, but any trashing or abuse will not be permitted. This rule extends to any person regardless of whether or not they are a member of this forum. Any mature adult should have no problem in expressing opinions and ideas, even disagreements without name calling.

We realize that everyone has different viewpoints and opinions and we welcome our members to share their thoughts and opinions. However, insults, abusive language, threats, gossip or harassment, and foul language will not be tolerated. The use of symbols to circumvent the word filters on the forum will be considered a violation of this policy in regard to foul language. All the stated forum rules include posts in the open forum, messages sent via PM and as well as harassing emails sent from Talk Paranormal or affiliated sites.

You should realize that this forum is open to people of all ages, therefore we must keep a family friendly atmosphere. No "adult" oriented language including jokes and innuendos. References to illegal drug use or abuse is as well not acceptable on the forum, whether in posts, PM’s, signatures, smilies or avatars.

The Administrator as well as any Moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post or profile that violates these rules. Please keep posts on topic in respect to the original poster (OP) of the threads in the open forum. Off topic posts will be removed. In extreme cases of abuse a member may be removed from the forum.

Each person is limited to one account. Please do not create multiple accounts.

Do not post personal information such as phone number, address, or email address in the open forums or use your email address as your user ID.

Respect Copyrights

Do not copy and paste content from other websites unless you have the copyright holders permission. Copyright laws and rights must be respected. If you feel that you would like to share an article that appears on another website it is recommended that you quote a sentence or two, or better yet write a short summary in your own words. It is perfectly acceptable to post a link to the article or story. (Note that links to porn, gambling, hate, warez, or any illegal type of website are not be permitted. Doing so will likely get a member banned from the forum.)

Reporting

If you find a post that violates these rules and guidelines or feel that you want to report the post to the attention of the Administrator, please don't hesitate to PM me.

Basically, if you respect other members feelings and opinions this forum will be a great place for all of us.

User accounts may not be sold, exchanged or transferred to another individual.

Thank you for taking a look at our forum rules. We appreciate it and hope you enjoy your stay!

If you have questions or comments about these rules feel free to send the Admin a PM.
