Here are the basic ground rules that will be enforced on the Forum. First of all, the Administrator and Moderators reserve the right to remove, edit or move posts without explanation. If you have any questions, please contact me at webmaster@alldeaf.com

1.) We do not allow Adult or Not Safe For Work (NSFW) content posted anywhere on the site. NSFW content consists of:

- Strategically covered nudity
- Lewd, provocative or see-through poses
- Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches
- Crude or indecent language, including adult stories
- Sexual tips or advice
- Sexual fetish sites (e.g. foot fetish content)
- Adult toys, products or sexual aids
- Ads or links to external sites containing adult content

2.) Members are not allowed to make posts that are discriminating, racist, threatening, hateful, or include links to pornography or warez.

3.) NO SPAMMING. Members may not use the forums (PM, signature, etc.) to solicit users for private, public or commercial gain. This also includes advertising other forums of the same nature.

4.) NO TROLLING. A troll is someone who provokes members into flaming discussions by posting outrageous messages, and usually ends with name callings and flame wars.

5.) Members using images as signatures and/or avatars are to use JPG or GIF format only. Only 1 image is allowed per signature, and must be 50KB or less in file size.

6.) Members are not to have multiple accounts, only one account per person is allowed. If you want to change your username, please send a request via PM.

7.) Members are not to request for removal of their accounts unless they have a very good reason. If you simply change your mind and want your account removed, I'm sorry but that's not going to happen.

8.) Members are not to make double posts. Select the correct forum and post in there once. Double posts will be removed by the moderators.

9.) Members may not scroll unnecessarily. Scrolling can refer to the following:

a.) Excessive quoting
b.) Excessive smilies, pictures
c.) Marquee images, text (scrolling horizontally)
d.) Anything that is repetitious

10.) No bashing, flaming, harassing or being rude to other members. Period.

11.) No enticing or provoking other members to cause them to get into trouble.

12.) Absolutely no copying and pasting private messages from AllDeaf on here or another site unless permission was granted by the other party.

12.a) Provide a link/source whenever 'copying and pasting' contents from any form of the media. We take copyright infringement seriously. For more info, visit this link.

Even though we support freedom of speech, show some respect, use common sense, and keep an open mind when participating in discussions.

Finally, any abuse towards the Moderators will not be tolerated. If you disagree with any of them, please contact me via PM (Private Message) or email me at webmaster(at)alldeaf.com
