Forum Registration Agreement (Terms of Service)
« on: March 20, 2013, 09:49:34 am »

Welcome to the Luminous Landscape's Forum.

Please think of your presence here and your use of this forum as if you were a guest in our house. With the exception of the For Sale section, no one needs to pay to register or post. We give you this space freely and with the expectation that you will respect it. Please guide your language and tone accordingly.

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, inflammatory, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, sexist, racist, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, ‘click-bait’ URLs, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that 'trolling' is considered to be a form of abuse and is harassment. Trolls will be banned from posting.

Persistent negativity and unpleasantness which undermine the tone of this forum will lead to the banning of that member.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you use your real First & Last name as your on-screen or user name. Forum users who hide behind anonymous or false on-screen names and who make inflammatory posts or ad hominem attacks will be banned. Members using pseudonyms will receive stricter treatment than those using their own name.

With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded. In the event that you are banned from this forum, your ISP may be contacted. This will happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

Any attachments to your posts should not be larger than 800 pixels on any side. Should you need to attach a larger image, use a link to an off-site file.

Site Administrators are Kevin Raber, Debra Fadely & Chris Sanderson. Should you have difficulty registering on our Forums, please contact: giving us the details of your failed registration.

Unconfirmed & unactivated registrations older than 31 days will be automatically deleted. Look for the registration email in your Spam box if you cannot see it.

If your registration is rejected as 'SPAM', please don't take it personally; this forum's software is not particularly smart and such things as a duplicate username or a numbered hotmail account will trigger this response.

And if you are wondering why you are required to answer all the silly little questions at registration and for your first few posts, blame the spamming 'bots & bozos that bedevil us all!

BTW the answers are all either a numeral, an abbreviation or a single word, character or symbol '-' Answers are case-sensitive!
