Tennis4you Guidelines
« on: August 07, 2006, 08:32:35 PM »
We love our tennis here at Tennis4you.  I am personally here several times a day to talk about tennis and fill in the voids when I am not on the court.  To help enhance the quality of the discussions, we ask that you abide by the guidelines outlined below when posting messages here at Tennis4you.  Violation of these guidelines will result in a warning being issued, persistent warnings will result in either a permanent or temporary ban. The action that is taken will depend on the severity of the violation.

Decency
This forum is intended for users over the age of thirteen (13), however users of all ages are able to view the site, therefore persons of a younger age should be taken into consideration when posting content onto the public forums. Therefore it is asked that members use common sense when posting messages.

Flaming

Actions considered as Flaming (the act of being offensive towards others) will not be tolerated, we try to allow people to voice their opinions, and allow for debate, however, we do not want to see posts that offend other forum members.

Explicit and Pornographic Images
This includes, but is not limited to any distasteful photographs or images containing explicit imagery. Furthermore, this includes those of a graphic or vulgar nature, which would be deemed unsuitable for a community forum for all ages.

Use of Foul Language
The use of profanity will not be tolerated. Please show respect for yourself and the members here at Tennis4you. Many profanities are automatically removed by the forum software, any attempts to circumvent the censoring imposed by the board will be removed, repeat offenders will be warned.  If any words have been missed from the filter, please contact a moderator or administrator.

Offence towards groups
Any racist, sexist and other remarks towards a minority or specific group of people, will be deleted and the member shall be warned or banned. The internet is one world, colour or creed is not an issue here!

Usernames
When creating a user name, please take into account the guidelines, any abusive/bad language seen in usernames will be looked upon harshly and will more then likely be deleted on sight.

Avatars
Please do not use an avatar larger than 150 pixels wide by 300 pixels tall. Avatars over these sizes will be removed as they make it harder for those with smaller screens to read the posts.

General Disclaimer
The Tennis4you moderation team reserves the right to edit or delete any message that does not adhere to or comply with these guidelines. We also reserve the right to ban individuals who repeatedly violate them. If your thread is moved to a moderator forum or deleted, you will be contacted via a Private Message if necessary.

If you feel any of the above items are not followed please let me know as soon as possible.  If you have any questions about the items listed above please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for helping us keep this a great place to talk about tennis!
Good Luck on the Court!!!
