Content

You must not post, attach or link to any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, offensive, abusive, threatening, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, racist, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International laws and regulations. You must not post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, porn, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are forbidden on this forum.

You must not post just to increase your post count. Also, do not post the same discussion more than once. Duplicate threads are annoying for other community members, especially for those whose time is limited. Duplicate discussions will be deleted without notice.

Forum staff and owner(s), also known as moderators and administrator(s), cannot 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 the forum owner(s).

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(s) 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, so please understand 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.

A last step to take if none of the above solves your issue is to contact a forum team member/moderator.

Using The Correct Forum

We have several methods of interacting, and our main forum is divided into sub-forums. Each has its own name and description. Please be careful to always use the correctforum when posting. Every day topics must be moved due to being posted in the wrong board, and this is both time-wasting and frustrating. We will not delete threads when they are in the wrong forum, however if you post excessively in the wrong board, you will be warned.

Staying Calm

If a fellow community member has an alternative opinion to your own, if you believe you are being attacked, or if you simply don’t like a particular member: Always calm down and be friendly, or just ignore them. If you offend or attack somebody: re-read these terms and conditions before you get yourself into trouble, and apologise for your actions.

Getting Exposure

If you would like to advertise your website or business, you can. However, you must contact a Gersnet team member first. They will tell you what advertising opportunities exist for you. Commercial advertisement is not permitted in the forum. Any post or thread that contains advertisements will be deleted without discussion.

User Account

When you register on this site and forum, you are creating a user account. As with all information posted on this forum, we advise that you keep the user-name for this account appropriate. With the registration of this user account, you agree to never give your password out to another person except the administrator(s), for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to never use another person's account for any reason. It is strongly recommended that you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft. If you suspect your account has been tampered with, please contact the administrator(s) or moderators as soon as possible.

Personal Profile

After registering with this forum, you will be able to complete a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum administrator(s)/moderators determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

The Final Word

Always remember: The moderator(s) and/or administrator(s) will make the final decision.
It is the moderator(s) and/or administrator(s) decision (and right) to:

  • Close a thread
  • Delete a thread
  • Ban/delete a user

If you post a thread questioning why a thread has been deleted, that will be deleted also.
If you have a problem and think the decision made was wrong or unfair, send one of the moderator(s) or administrator(s) a PM or email.
