Metabans.com & Metabans.net General Use
Unregistered, You must accept the Forum Rules below to be able to use some forum functions.
We take pride in keeping our message boards respectful, pleasant, and enjoyable for members of all ages. Please read the following guidelines before posting.
Self-Promotion is Spam
All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed for futher investigation. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests, including the promotion of a fantasy league or any site one is affiliated with, fits under this subject.
While you are allowed to promote your web site(s) in your signature, you are not permitted to post links to sites you run or are in any way affiliated with in your posts. In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.
Language and Trolling
Our community is family-friendly. There are young users and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.
Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
Moderators and Administrators Have the Final Word
If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards.The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.
If you have something to post and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
A typical signature contains the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favorite quote or saying. Excessive font size are not allowed. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.
Multiple Accounts Per Individual Are Not Permitted
If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.
Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact a Admin or Mod. Above all, remember to have fun!
Like most website operators, Metabans collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Metabans’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Metabans’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Metabans may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Metabans also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on metabans.com & metabans.net blogs. Metabans only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Metabans’s websites choose to interact with Metabans in ways that require Metabans to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Metabans gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at metabans.com & metabans.net to provide a username and email address. In each case, Metabans collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Metabans. Metabans does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Metabans may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Metabans may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Metabans does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Metabans discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Metabans’s behalf or to provide services available at Metabans’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Metabans’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Metabans will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Metabans discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Metabans believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Metabans, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Metabans website and have supplied your email address, Metabans may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Metabans and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Metabans takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Metabans, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the event that Metabans goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of Metabans may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
For breaking above rules you may be warned/banned appropriately!
I have read, and agree to abide by the Metabans Forums rules.
