The Rules

1. You will not post any abusive, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, threatening, defamatory, libelous or invasive messages.

2. This is not the forum to complain about other forums. We're not alone on the net, and we all have a history with other sites. There isn't a ban on discussing the past, but overt attempts to antagonize members/proprietors of other sites will not be tolerated.

3. You will not post any message violative of any law.

4. Trolling (intentionally trying to cause disruption by posting messages that are inflammatory, insulting, or off-topic, with the intent of provoking a reaction from others) will not be tolerated. The staff -- not the users -- will determine if someone is trolling. Members are also asked NOT to take moderation into their own hands by picking on other users; our members are welcome to PM or e-mail a moderator and let us know there is an issue so that we, the staff, may take care of it. (Vigilante moderation is not permitted by our users.) Additionally, our members will practice common courtesy in dealing with the staff, other users and the administrators of this Forum, and likewise the staff of the Forum will treat its members with respect. It is important to remember that this Forum is run solely on a volunteer basis.

5. You will not to post any copyrighted material, unless the copyright is owned by you. Substantive violation of copyright in any way is expressly forbidden.

Links to unauthorized copyrighted material are forbidden, and the posting of such links can result in a ban from the forum.

6. You will be civil. You will not personally attack other members.

6a. Also, please note that BSG MVP’s (identified with "BSG MVP" tags) have contributed to the operation of the Forum but are NOT considered more favored than any other user; MVP's and regular members are all valued members of the Forum equally. Additionally, many individuals have donated anonymously, or have requested they not be identified as
MVP's.

7. Profanity can be used with great effect when used sparingly. The worst of the words will be filtered. Do not attempt beat the curse filter. You know what a foul word is - if you type something that gets through - go back and edit it out so a moderator doesn't have to.

Use the “The Network Television” scale when evaluating whether something you are about to post is too profane or is of an overtly adult nature. If it’s more than you’d see on prime time television, it’s more than we want to see here. This applies to all sub-forums at BSG.

8. No graphics of any kind are permitted in users' signatures.

9. You will not post personal information about other members of the forum on this forum or elsewhere.

10. We will not tolerate users repeatedly, willfully or unintentionally, testing the boundaries and limits of the rules.

Use of BSG is your agreement to abide by these guidelines.

Thanks for joining BSG and enjoy.

Donations

Since a number of people expressed interest these new board, and said, "Hey, I'll contribute $x" to it", we added the option to make a donation via PayPal.

We're only taking donations up to the amount needed to cover hosting and domain costs, which have already grown (from $195 to $350) for the first year. If we end up collecting more, we'll earmark it for future expenses.

Anyone who makes a donation will get listed on the site, and will get the rank "BSG MVP" listed under their username.

With regards to the PayPal setup. This is a new system, and it may have a few bugs. We recommend holding onto your email receipt until you show up on the donor list and with the rank associated with your username.

If you have any questions, please email donations AT BackSheGoes DOT Com.

The "BSG MVP" rank is our own (site admins) doing. It's a manual process where we've been matching up the email addresses Paypal gives us with registered email addresses. We don't have the information about anonymous donors, because PayPal doesn't record that information.

When all that donations get processed by PayPal (which should be next week sometimes), the donor list will be generated on the site (you can see the "framework" for it on the main page now). Anonymous donors won't be listed.

If you made an anonymous donation, and you don't want the BSG MVP rank, just let me know, and we can remove it at your request.

Update October 24, 2010

The moderators will, from time to time, agree that a poster is a jerk whether they break any specific rules or not. Jerks will be banned. If the vagueness of this rule concerns you, try not to be a jerk and you'll be fine.
