[b]Forum rules[/b]

- Be polite and respectful towards other members of the forum
- Discuss any topic you like
- Introduce yourself, we're all friendly here and like to meet new members

- Use ALL CAPS in your post or thread title. Your post will get held back and likely deleted
- Advertise in the General Discussion forum (that includes any items, services or websites)
- Post messages that are likely to be inflammatory
- Post messages that may be libelous, defamatory or slanderous - unless you want to pay our solicitors fees.
- Post messages linking to another forum. If you have something to share, please do it here.
- Post the same message multiple times. Duplicate posts are deleted automatically
- Create affiliate links or links with referrer IDs

Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be given a warning (see policing below).

Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.
Members are asked to not act as “back seat moderators”. If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Please use the “post report” feature to report posts. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who constantly “act” as moderators may be warned.

Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.

Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information on warez, crackz, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed.

Members are asked only to post in English, as this is an English speaking community.
Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([b]Spam[/b]
The forum uses a sophisticated spam detection system. Whilst it would be nice if we could simply trust everyone to post relevant and useful messages, there are unfortunately Internet users who simply wish to post 'spam' advertising often illegal products & services.
Like any system, it isnlt always 100% reliable and this may mean that from time to time a users post may be placed in a moderation queue for an administrator to review. This means there may be a short delay in some posts appearing while awaiting approval, please do note however that we DO review any such posts and will always endevour to approve posts that have been unjustly held up. This system cannot be tailored to the needs of each member and will remain in place. By signing up to and using our forum, you are agreeing to this system.

[b]Job Advertising
[/b]If you wish to place an advert for a job, at a minimum it must include details of the work to be carried out, working hours, location and salary details. This is to avoid the posting of 'get rich quick' schemes.
Any sort of 'work from home', form filling and referral scheme posts will be deleted and your account terminated without notice.

Signatures may contain up to five lines of text (of small or normal size) and/or one image, valid combinations include; a single image of no more than 60px high, 468px wide and 6KiB (6144 Bytes) in size. Signatures containing an image this large may also include one line of small size text. Signatures containing an image of 30px high may include up to three lines of small size text or two lines of normal size text. Images of 15px height or less may allow up to three lines of normal size text or four lines of small size text. Animated images are not allowed. Remote signature images must have a consistently high availability to avoid removal. Limit on image filesize prevents detrimental effect on forums page load speed. #
Text sizes should be between 75% and 100% (small and normal). Text in signatures is subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, warez, emoticons, and so forth.

Links in signatures are permitted to a maximum of four unique pages or sites. Admin team members are allowed additional links to aid in rendering support for for the forum. Such links may only be to *.lemongrovecyprus.com or approved material. Linked sites may be commercial in nature. You may not include links in a way which suggests you offer official support, software, etc. for lemongrovecyprus. You may not link to warez, porn, racist or other similar hate sites. Links are included in signature size limits.

Users abusing these rules will be warned.

Users are permitted to utilise a gallery avatar or to link to one of their own (subject to previous points on misuse of bandwidth). User defined avatars are to be no larger than 120 pixels square, contain no animation, contain no image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status here (e.g. mimicking ranks or copying avatars of team members), may not exceed 12KiB (12288 Bytes) in filesize. Remote avatars must have a consistently high availability to avoid removal. Limit on image filesize prevents detrimental effect on forums page load speed.

Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, and so forth.

Users abusing these rules will be warned and/or may lose their avatar privileges

[b]Infractions & Bans[/b]

Generally, rule violations will lead to an infraction note on your account and you will be notified as such. Further rule violations will lead to a permanent ban.

An exception to the two strike rule applies when users contact team members personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.

Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While Lemon Grove Cyprus may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence.

[/b]Lemongrove Forums are an open and public means of communication. By using these forums, you agree that no responsibility can be taken by the owners for any comments, defamation, derogation however so caused.
Please also remember, that by posting your own views on this forum, you are sharing your opinions and views with other users who can freely view your comments online. No action will be taken if at a later date you decide you didn't mean to say something...so be careful of what you say in the first place!!
