PostPosted: Thu Oct 07, 2004 11:28 pm    Post subject: Homepage links and images in profiles Reply with quote

Anyone who registers for the sole purpose of putting their homepage link in their profile is subject to having their account deleted immediately if the homepage link is to a site that contains any objectionable content.

That includes commercial search sites, porn and adult content, sites advertising drugs, medications, body piercing and the like.

In the last 2 or 3 weeks, probably a dozen or more users have been deleted. It's very obvious when someone registers under these circumstances - they never activate their account, their email address is fake, their homepage link is unacceptable. They set their profile to be hidden when on the forum. Be advised - you are always visible to the admins, who are on the board at all times.

To anyone coming here to register to advertise your homepage link, DON'T BOTHER

Your account will be deleted immediately upon being noticed by an admin. We are checking the memberlist every one to two hours for suspicious registrations.

This policy also applies to homepage links for users who register for legitimate purposes, needing help, etc. Any offensive homepage link will be removed and users will be contacted with a warning not to replace them. Anyone not complying may be deactivated, deleted, and/or banned from the forum.

Updated 11-02-2005.
Images or code in sigs or posts, such as HTML or JavaScripts that might collect any information from other users, are not allowed. If found, they will be removed by an admin and the user will be warned. A second offense will result in being deactivated and banned.
