    Welcome to the ABESTWEB Message Board.

    The objective of this board is to provide a forum for peer-to-peer communication on issues involving your website and improving it. Your usage of this boards acknowledges your agreement to our terms as well as your willingness to follow these few simple rules. The rules from time to time will be updated without prior notice and you agree to abide by such updating as applicable.

    <UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Content Of Post
    Messages posted to this board are solely the opinion and responsibility of the person posting the message. Please be aware that all members are able to read posts on this message board, that includes children (under 18). Therefore, please, do not post any "adult" or questionable off-topic material, as it will only be removed and a ban warning will be issued. Posts containing racist, sexual- or religious-, personal-, etc offending content will be removed and will get you banned immediately.

    <LI>Board Moderation
    Board moderators' decisions (editing, moving, deleting of single posts or entire threads) are final. You will accept this. Also, you will not re-edit a message that has already been edited by a moderator out of defiance of the original edit. Starting discussing such a decision on the board, will get you either a ban-warning or banned. If you feel that you have be treated wrongly, send an email with your complaints to haiko@abestweb.com and we will look into it and review the decision made. During the review period we may disable your access to the board and/or close the appropriate thread. Any creation of new aliases on the board by an offender will immediately result in full denial of review and a full ban.

    <LI>Banning
    If you are banned you will respect the decision of this board and will not sign up with a different alias as an effort to defraud the good will of this board nor its member base by doing such. There is no specific amount of ban warnings a member can receive before they are permanently banned, banning is based on the severity of the individual or sum of the multiple offenses.

    <LI>Aliases
    If you create an alias account on the board impersonating, offending or extremely similar to an existing board member's alias or other inappropriate name such account will be disabled and you will be given a ban warning.

    <LI>Threatening Members Or Staff
    Please be aware that any threats against members, as well as threats against the ABESTWEB staff (on the board, via private message, telephone, email, fax or other written or verbal method) will be forwarded to the responsible authorities and the offender will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    <LI>Warez, Hackz, etc
    The ABESTWEB message board is not a place to share information about where to get illegal software and other products, how to use or to trade them, as such, all posts of that kind will be deleted. The person posting will get a warning or will be banned.

    <LI>Bigotry
    Any derogatory post referencing any persons (member or non-member) race, color, creed, or sexual preference (or any allegations thereof, justified or not) will be deleted ASAP, any repeat offenders will be banned.

    <LI>URL Exposing
    Any member who posts another member's url or urls to their site(s), without the owners prior approval, shall immediately be banned.

    <LI>Identity Exposing
    Any member who posts another members real name or other personal information, without the member's prior approval, shall immediately be banned.

    <LI>SPAMPostings that are designed "only" to drive traffic to a members site, or affiliated merchant site will be removed or edited as appropriate. Independent Merchants are invited to ABestWeb, but postings of a self serving nature and recruiting or requests of program feedback or improvements are NOT allowed. If a merchant desires to advertise their site they can go to http://www.abestweb.com/buy_ads.htm and if they want to be considered for a Private Forum they can go to http://www.abestweb.com/merchants. Offenders may get a warning or will be banned, depending on severity .

    <LI>Images
    The posting of pictures that violate a copyright of any 3rd party, as well as the posting of images that are offending (adult material, etc) is not allowed in the boards, the profiles nor as avatars. Pictures of that kind will be immediately removed and the person posting will get either a warning or will be banned depending on the severity of the offense. Please, also, do not "over use" the image-option.

    <LI>Signatures
    Signatures must not be greater than three lines of text and can not contain links to adult or offensive websites! You may choose to include a picture in your signature, but it must be an image no greater than 88x31 and non-animated. Any signatures, that violate these rules will be deleted without notice and your signature right will be removed. ABESTWEB may allow merchants to have a larger signature for their full contact information.[/list]

    <center>If you cannot agree to these terms, please do not use this message board. Thank you.</center>

    Haiko that is a good one, would it not be wise to add peoples names to this as well? I was thinking of Leaders experience in the past.
