Warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home1/neforum1/public_html/libraries/joomla/utilities/date.php on line 56

Forum Rules

Below you will find an ever evolving list of rules for the forums.  Please remember while we encourage everyone to join and speak their mind this is not a "public" forum and the right to free speech does not apply here.  If you are posting comments that are out of line or that we deem inappropriate, we'll remove the post at our discretion.  Period.  We pay for the site, we maintain the forums, so we make the rules.  That being said...here are the rules.  (Be sure the check back from time to time as we will update these as time goes on).

The following posts, materials, behavior is strictly prohibited within the forums.  Individuals breaking these rules are subject to anything from warning, probationary bans, or permanent bans.  In most cases, a warning will be sent for the first offense, prob. ban for second, and permanent ban for the third.  Some extreme instances will call for immediate permanent ban and is up to the admin's discresion.

  • User Account Sharing:  Current forum users are prohibited from sharing their accounts with probationary or permanently banned users. Violation of this rule will result in the suspension of the current user's account and the permanent banning of the probationary user's account. If for one reason or another a current user needs to share their account with another current user, they must notify an administrator to have the matter cleared.
  • Racism/Bigotry/Etc.: There is no reason that everyone cannot discuss any topic in a civilized manner.  Any type of racism, discrimination, or spitting of hate towards any race, creed, religion, beliefs, etc. will be met with immediate probationary ban and possible permanent ban, depending on the material.
  • Pirated Material: Distribution of of unauthorized copies of intellectual property such as movies, television, music, games, comics and software programs.
  • Vulgarity: Excessive language is not tolerated. Inappropriate language is automatically filtered. Inappropriate context, however, is not, but still should not be used. Bypassing the filter may result in either a warning or automatic probation. Repeated violations of this rule may result in account banning.
  • Spamming: Spam is defined as posts that are inconsistent with the other thread or forum dialogue. Spamming may result in a warning or probation. Continued spamming may result in banning.
  • Trolling: Trolling is considered the starting of a thread or posting in an established thread or forum for the express purpose of ticking off as many people as possible that would normally be reading that thread or forum. Trolling can result in a warning or probation. Continued trolling may result in banning.
  • Pornography: Pornography is not allowed either in picture or written form.  This includes instances where you are "Hotlinking" pictures from another website and they change the image to deter hotlinking.  You are responsible for the images you post, regardless of the intention.
  • General Asshatery: This is a fairly vague term, and it's that way on purpose.  Basically, if you are acting like an idiot in any way the admin can punish in any way he see's fit.  This is a catch all for the things that don't fall under the above items but we all know are unnecessary and inappropriate.
Treat people with a basic level of respect and just try and have a good time.
