Registration to this forum is free. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below.

Although the administrators and moderators of The Black Vault Message Board will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is nearly impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author only and the owner of the The Black Vault Message Board will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owner of The Black Vault Message Board reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

Forum Rules

1. Treat others with respect.

You are to respect every other user on the board despite any personal, religious and political differences. The following will not be tolerated:

- Personal insults
- Threats or promotion of violence

2. Do not spam websites, books, or any product for sale or distribution. This is ALL considered spam.

You are asked to keep "spam" off the board. This includes, but is not limited to posts trying to sell your book... trying to get traffic to your website... selling a product... etc. This is common sense and common courtesy, and ask this not be brought to the board. Attempts to spam will be deleted, and warnings will be issued. If you feel a RESOURCE is worthwhile, and would like it posted for consideration, please write to john@greenewald.com privately.

3. One user account per person.

The use of 2 or more posting accounts is prohibited. If you can't say what you need to say with your user account then it probably shouldn't be said in the first place.

4. Respect the moderator.

Moderation is a thankless task. You can't please all the people all the time but the moderator will do their best to be fair to everyone.

5. Don't feed the trolls.

By its nature, this board is likely to attract its share of trouble makers. Trolls thrive on attention so the best thing you can do is to ignore them and report any offending post to a moderator who will deal with the situation. Getting into flame wars with a troll is exactly what they want you to do, so don't give them the satisfaction.

6. No nudity / Porn / Warez (Illegal software)

This is common sense, but we are not interested in illegal software (pirating movies, software etc.), no nude pictures or videos, or pornography. All of these are illegal here, and are not welcome.

7. Source third-party material

We do welcome third-party material here. This includes, but is not limited to, news articles, reports, etc. We welcome you to "copy and paste" the material - but do not claim it as your own. We ask you source the material at the bottom of the work, so others know it is not your own, and is sourced properly.

Also, we ask you only post a few paragraphs of the article (generally the message is conveyed) but NOT the entire article. Then, offer a link at the bottom of the excerpt to "keep reading" if the reader chooses to do so.

Warning System

The warning system is used to remind members of the rules and guidelines. If you make a post that violates the rules you will be given a warning that will outline what rule has been violated and your may be asked to edit your post. If you have logged off the board and are unable to edit your own post, the post may be edited by a moderator.

Warnings

A warning will be given to a member the first time he/she violates a certain rule. There will only be one warning given for each type of violation. If a member continues to violate that rule a ban will be placed on the account.

Here is a list of what you can be warned for:

- Personally insulting/abusing another member
- Spam
- Posting private communications from, or personal information about another poster
- Found to be operating multiple accounts
- Promoting dangerous or illegal activities

The Black Vault reserves the right to ban any account, at any time, for disobeying the simple rules above. Although the best effort will be kept to issue ample warning(s), the right is reserved to ban without one if the offense is serious enough.

Well, since the only way to reply is via the "Quote" button or I just now found the + button I'm trying that.  It would be nice if the little Reply Button at the bottom worked and the Create New Topic Buttons worked.  Is it not working for me cause I'm new?  Anyway, just in case you have to reply to this topic I order to interact properly with the site I'm responding. And yes I agree to abide by the rules set forth here, and have been trying my best to so far. =-)!

... Sorry for my Newbie-ness and lost complaining,  I kinda speak what I'm feeling. *blush!*

Thank you for the info. In my opinion most of this is common sense stuff but I guess that's been in short supply world wide lately.Kiss

It is pretty hard to report a post or an individual if there is no "Report" Button.
