You may not bait, stalk, or harass other members. You may not use this forum to solicit other members through personal messages. Any thread or post that is either reported or deemed by admin to be offensive will be locked, moved or deleted.

3.  It is not permitted to disclose any information about another member without their express permission. Disclosing any such information may result in a permanent ban.

5.  Members are solely responsible for their words and actions.  Aussie Lapidary Forum will not be held accountable for the opinions stated by its members.  Members are reminded that any advice they take from other members is done so of their own free will and with no endorsement from Australian Lapidary Forum. Posts and photographs belong to the member who publishes them.  Under the copyright laws, you must seek permission from the author before replicating them elsewhere.  If members require the deleting of their posts they are responsible for the editing of such posts. Admin will not provide bulk deletions.

6.  Members must ensure that their email settings are correct and as they require.  All members by default will receive Admin emails.  If you do not wish to receive emails, you will need to log in and change your preferences.

7.  This is a public forum and we request that you do not use profanity or excessive bad language. Abuse of this provision may result in your posts being edited and a warning from the administrator.

10.  Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible.  Members who fall into the trade or vendor category should read our policy on commercial posting to ensure compliance with forum guidelines.

11.  Pornography, warez, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form. Abuse of this provision will result in immediate deletion of your membership and a permanent ban on rejoining.

12.  All posts are property of the poster. This forum and all web sites owned in conjunction with this forum have the right to request alteration or deletion of any offensive post.

14.  Users may not argue a moderators decision publicly. A disagreement with a moderator must first be raised with the moderator in question via PM.  If the problem can not be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their positions to the forum admin. The forum admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions.

15.  Pictures, photographs or images may be posted as long as they are not explicit or offensive.  Please consider the copyright laws - do not upload any file unless you are the author/photographer or have specific permission from the author/photographer.  Links to other sources should be clearly cited.

16.  Please try to keep uploaded images to a minimum file size to accomodate for dialup members. We want everyone here to have an enjoyable experience, and images that have excessive file sizes cause undue problems for those without broadband.

17.  If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines, please contact a moderator via PM.  Please do not respond publicly to the member - a member of staff will do what is required upon contact.

18.  Any impersonation of a member from this forum, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning.

We also reserve the right to change our Terms of Service and Forum Rules at any time, with no notification to the members of this site.  Current version of these rules will always be available in the Forum Announcements Board.
