Registration Agreement

You agree, through your use of this Gingerbeer* forum, that you will not post or display on your profile any material which is false, defamatory, libellous, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, nude, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of ANY law. This is not humorous and legal action can be taken against you. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or you have consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes or money making schemes, and solicitations are also inappropriate to this Gingerbeer forum.

Please note that if you add a moderator to your 'IM' ban/ignore list you will be immediately banned from this forum.

Gingerbeer welcomes all women who consider themselves queer, be that bisexual lesbian, gay, dyke, transgender or any other box that we haven't yet heard about.

Transgender and transsexual FtM's who still identify with the lesbian/queer/dyke/gay community are equally welcome.

We have the right to exclude biological men from this forum, within a reasonable time frame, BUT BE AWARE THAT BIOLOGICAL MEN, WHO DON'T LIVE FULL TIME AS WOMEN, ARE NOT ALLOWED!

Note that it is impossible for us to confirm the validity of posts on this SMF forum.  Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages and are not responsible for their content. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information presented. The messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of the Gingerbeer team/SMF forum.  Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator of this forum immediately. We have the rights to remove objectionable content and ask that images in the dungeon area and vault are submitted in link form.  Removal of posts is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

The Moderator has a right to ban anyone from these boards who is seen to cause extreme conflict/harassment in written posts/Instant Messages and continues to do so after a warning from the moderator.  A moderator also has the right to lift a ban after a cooling off period subject to the member rejoining and understanding that if further problems occur, the member will be given a permanent ban.

If a member is 'strongly' suspected of being a biological man the moderator will contact that person.  If there is proof from other members that a biological man has registered (in posts or IM's) the information needs to be passed to the moderator ASAP and that person will be banned.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this forum, and any related websites to this forum. We at this Gingerbeer forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any information posted by you.  Once registered your username will be activated for one month until you post your first message.  If you have registered and have not posted as a member of this forum in one month, your username will be deleted after that time to allow newly registered members access to usernames not being used.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another member, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another member's account to post messages or browse this forum. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR PASSWORD!  An invalid email address will also be grounds for suspension of your account.

After you register and log into the Gingerbeer forum, you can fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information we deem inaccurate or vulgar will be removed.

When you register please make sure there is a distinguishable difference between the username you choose for use on these boards and other members names already registered.  If your name is too similar to a username already in use, Gingerbeer moderators reserve the right to block access and delete the name/profile.  Please take note: In the past, the use of similar names has caused conflict on these boards.

Please do not flame the boards with links advertising your personal websites, or adverts promoting new websites.  If you want to promote your site, personal or otherwise put it in your profile or contact the main Gingerbeer site (www.gingerbeer.co.uk).  Any posts seen as advertising will be removed without discussion.  If you continue to post adverts, you will be banned.

If you are a promoter using this site, please do not use smilies to bump up posts.  If you want your posts to be read, its advisable to put information in your post of interest to your punters.  Using smilies to continuously bump up posts will lead to deletion of your account on Gingerbeer.  As promoters of private business ventures you are a visitor to this site and you will be banned if you abuse your membership.  If you have problems following the rules of this forum regarding posting your events, please feel free to pay for advertising on the main Gingerbeer site.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this SMF forum or your ISP contacted and a complaint made against you. This will only happen in the event of a violation of this agreement.

Gingerbeer reserves to delete all user profiles which have been inactive for 30 days or more.

This agreement is to agreed in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions of the site located here:  http://www.gingerbeer.co.uk/?p=gingerbeer.co.uk_-_terms_and_conditions
