THE WRITERS FORUM's purpose is to establish community among like-minded individuals. Any repeated attempts to disrupt the flow of community on our boards will result in having your posting priveleges revoked and your account blocked or deleted to avoid any further disruptions. The following is a general list of rules for THE WRITERS FORUM. If you intend to participate on our boards, we'll expect you to follow them explicitly. Anyone noticing any violation of these rules can simply use the "Report" link below the violating post to alert THE WRITERS FORUM staff.
DON'T DROP DIME!
Any user responsible for revealing specific identities, dates, locations, or dropping personal details and/or incriminating information of any kind will be uncermoniously banned from THE WRITERS FORUM for the remainder of all eternity.
DON'T BLOW UP SPOTS!
Nobody wants to have their favorite chill spot over-run by strangers or toys, so if you know details about a particular spot, keep them to yourself.
We do not tolerate the posting of any advertising or solicitation on our message boards. Offenders will have their posting priveleges suspended and their accounts blocked to avoid further infractions. If you'd like to advertise legitimately, contact us.
There's plenty of spots on the web to check out porn, this isn't one of them. Keep porn off our boards! (Porn, as defined by 12ozPROPHET, is anything involving penetration or excessively lewd sexual acts)
There's plenty of more interesting stuff to talk about than the blunt you and your boys smoked. Save those discussions for another board, cause drug topics aren't tolerated here.
Maybe your girl is impressed that you can walk out of a store with 20 cans shoved in your crotch, but we're not. Regardless of your stance on theft, we'd prefer you kept the discussion of it off our boards. That also includes offers to buy, sell, or trade bootleg merchandise.
DON'T TROLL OR FLAME!
Don't wander through discussions acting like an asshole. This is our house, and though we open it up to the general public, we still reserve the right to kick out people that act like pricks.
STAY ON TOPIC!
We've pretty much created a separate forum for every type of discussion, so make sure you post to the appropriate place. If there's (arguably) no redeeming quality to your post, than don't waste our bandwidth posting it (This goes double for posting 'First' and/or 'Page *' within threads, and triple for the posting of random images). And, if you notice a thread discussing a particular topic, for pete's sake, don't go and start a new one. Additionally, try and use informative subjects lines for new threads. Besides being helpful, it shows you're not a new jack when it comes to message boards.
READ THE FAQ & HELP SECTIONS!
Take a moment to read the FAQ and HELP sections before you go and start posting questions or emailing the moderators. If the answer isn't in the FAQ or HELP sections, take a moment to search through old threads, cause chances are it's been asked a thousand times before. There arent enough hours in the day to respond to every inquiry so replies won't be given to obvious answers.
CUT US SOME SLACK!
We maintain this message board for fun, and as our small contribution back to the online community. It's not our full time jobs to moderate these boards or handle requests, so if you don't get an immediate response to a post or email, understand that we'll get to it as soon as we can. There aren't enough hours in the day to respond to every email we get, or to fix every issue that comes up, but we'll do what we can to help you out if you remain patient and polite.
NO LAW ENFORCEMENT!
The use of our boards by law enforcement for the sake of researching, gathering, or in any way preparing evidence for use in any legal proceedings or prosecution is strictly forbidden. You agree to these terms by requesting any page or content originating from our domain.
As much as we would like to claim that we maintain a law enforcement free environment at THE WRITERS FORUM, there is little we can do to insure this. Therefore, use common sense and precautions when dealing with people you don't know or have never met in person. Since the foundation of our community is built on the privacy of our members, we do our best to maintain your privacy. However, we strongly recommend you not put yourself out there by posting personal or private information anywhere online, including THE WRITERS FORUM.
The administrators of THE WRITERS FORUM reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.
