This board is a useful resource for many because of the great people who participate in discussions posted. Everyone is here to help each other and to learn. In order to optimize the usefulness of the message board we ask that you follow some simple guidelines and to respect the following:
1) Professional behavior and positive contributions
Professional behavior and treatment of other users is expected. While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate insulting posts or personal attacks. Insulting, racist, sexist, etc remarks have no place on these message boards. Offenders should be reported to administrator and they will be warned and/or banned if necessary. Treat all with respect.
2) Trolls will be considered trespassers
Trolling is misuse of our server. It involves posting in a fashion which interrupts the academia's activity and intentionally violates our site policies. Beware, trolling interferes with operation of our nonprofit organization. Those who troll are trespassing on our network. We reserve the right to take any and all legal and technical remedies to prevent trolling and spamming of our forums. If you come upon a guest that is clearly trolling, report their post to the administrator.
3) Search before starting a new thread
In order to keep the forums efficient for our users please search for an answer to any questions you may have prior to asking in a new thread.
4) No multiple posts
Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. Don’t cross-post on the forums. Just post once. Posting a question or comment in multiple forums is annoying to other guests.
5) Nothing illegal is allowed
Discussion of activities which are illegal will not be tolerated. This includes activities such as software, book or music piracy and other intellectual property violations. Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted and the original poster penalized.
6) Post in the correct sub-forum
Users are expected to contribute to the threads and discussions in the appropriate message board.
7) No multiple accounts
Just use one account. Multiple accounts are at risk of being banned and future registration blocked at the discretion of the administrator. Note, your registration and IP information is visible to the administrators who can easily identify users using multiple accounts.
8) Keep your signature reasonable
Your signature should not contain more than your name and other associated identifying information. The design of the signature should not interfere with the ease of viewing any threads.
9) Be respectful of all users.
Disrespect towards other genders, races, nationalities, languages, or religions will not be tolerated. Freedom of private religious practices are to be respected. The Cultus Deorum Romanorum is to be the primary spiritual practice of the Roman Republic and is to be treated with honor.
A consistent pattern of not fulfilling basic expectations listed above will result in action in accordance to the terms of service which all members agree to at the time of registration.
Administrators reserve the right to edit and delete posts and ban users at their discretion. If you have any questions regarding the forum rules please contact a staff member.
