USE OF MESSAGE BOARDS
The Website includes many community message boards. To access the message boards, and certain areas of each community, you will be required to create an account on our Website. You will need to select a user name and password; the username that you select is the name that appears when you post on the message board. It can be any name that you select, as long as someone else has not selected that name before you. Your password, like your username, is only for logging into the communities. It can be anything you want it to be. If you are an AOL user, it does not have to be your AOL password, and in fact, we suggest that you not use your AOL password.
Considering the real-time nature of the message board(s), Theotokantown.com cannot review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. We do not actively monitor the contents of posted messages, are not responsible for any messages posted, do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of the Administrators or any entity or individual associated with Theotokantown.com. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact the Administrators immediately by email. The Website Administrators may in its discretion remove such material, but neither the removal nor the failure to do so shall result in liability to anyone. Because removal is a manual process, removal or editing particular messages may not occur immediately.

Communicating on message boards is different from face-to-face communication. Only the words are seen, not your facial expressions or tone of voice. Please pay careful attention to how you use your words.
Remember that the words you enter in a burst of passion or indignant anger will be there for you and everyone else to see, sometimes long after those intense feelings have passed. That's not meant to discourage spontaneity, but just a friendly reminder of the long-term existence and effects of what you post.
You may, from time to time, find yourself in disagreement with someone else's opinion. At times like these, please keep in mind it's safer and more polite to take issue with the comments rather than the person.
By becoming a member of a Theotokantown.com community, you agree that you will not post any of the following material in any of our message board communities or send to another community member (by personal delivery, mail, email or otherwise) any communication that is intended to harass, belittle, humiliate, threaten in a physical, emotional, legal or economic nature or cause embarrassment to a fellow member.
• Material that contains vulgar, obscene or indecent language or images.
• Material that defames, abuses or threatens others, including but not limited to threats of instituting litigation against another member.
• Statements that are bigoted, hateful or racially offensive.
• Material that advocates illegal activity or discusses illegal activities with the intent to commit them.
• Unauthorized copyrighted material.
• Personal information of anyone (address, phone number, etc.) without their express permission.
• Personal information of another user (name, address, phone number, picture, etc.) who may wish to remain anonymous.
• Material that impedes or otherwise prohibits communication; disrupts the discussion including, without limitation, using names that are offensive to the topic or the member, and repeatedly posting off-topic messages in a topical message board.
Statements or postings that violate the above terms will be deleted from postings upon discovery. While we may attempt to notify you if we move or delete a post, we are under no obligation to do so. Depending on the nature of the violation, Theotokantown.com, at its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate a member's account without notice.
The “Golden Rule” for the board is to respect others. This board includes members of all ages and backgrounds. Focus on the subject matter not the person. This is a place to share information, ideas and thoughts. If you have problems with a member, a questionable post or picture, please report the problem either by sending a PM to the moderator, administrator, or by using the "Report Abuse" link found at the bottom of every post. We will try to handle these matters in a timely manner. Failure to follow this procedure may result in termination of your account as determined by Theotokantown.com, in its sole discretion.
Any posts, including pictures, avatars, and signatures that violate the rules can either be edited or deleted at the moderator’s discretion with or without a warning. Threads that are started and then turned into bashing, name calling and racial slurs will have the whole thread deleted.
You are granted a limited nonexclusive license to use the information for your personal and noncommercial use. Otherwise, you may not copy, store in an electronic form, modify, print, transmit, sell or transfer, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, frame in another web page, display, or in any way exploit any of the content, in whole or in part. Permission to reprint or electronically reproduce any materials is expressly prohibited without prior written consent from Theotokantown.com.
The message boards on Theotokantown.com provide a forum to share and exchange information. As we grow larger and as our membership numbers increase, we have found a small percentage of our new members are misusing the message boards by promoting their products and/or services. This is detrimental to both Theotokantown.com and to those who frequent Theotokantown.com for a variety of reasons. First, many legitimate threads are “hijacked" into sales pitches and the original interesting discussion is often lost. Second, if a thread is started by someone looking to sell their product or service, then the message boards quickly become cluttered with these types of “spam” threads and one has to sift through them to find threads where exchange of helpful information is taking place. Last, Theotokantown.com’s desire is to keep membership free. To be able to do this and continue enhancing this Website, revenue is generated by advertising. However, the companies who are supporting the community by purchasing advertising find it unfair that certain members are taking advantage of the message boards by posting their “free advertising”. For these reasons, the Moderators and Administrators have been instructed to remove these types of posts and threads. They are instructed to notify the offender with a message similar to this…
"I have deleted the thread or post that you started regarding your company as this is considered "spamming" of the boards. We ask instead that you fill out your profile and use the signature area to market your company and then participate and contribute on the message boards by answering questions or giving suggestions within those same forums you posted in earlier. Thank you for your cooperation."
As a courtesy from Theotokantown.com to all members, the signature area can be used, within reason, for contact information or to promote your company/product or a “special deal” you may be offering the members.
What work’s best for members who have something to sell is to contribute to the message board on a regular basis, giving helpful advice and answers versus being viewed as only posting to promote your products. While contributing, your contact information is seen in the signature area and those that have been helped (as well as others that have seen this help) will then know how to reach you.
Threads started for the purpose of selling, introducing, or talking about one's own product, company, or service will be removed. Posts interjected into existing threads for the same purpose will be removed. This being said, we do not want to stifle the flow of good information on Theotokantown.com so if members pose a question about a product, company, or service, then of course answers may be posted (within reason). At times, there may be a fine line in the interpretation of what is helpful information and what is an attempt at “free advertising” but the decision of the moderators and administrators is final and no second guessing of their decisions on the message boards will be permitted. If you disagree contact the administration through email or private message.
Within the body of a post, do not use links for the purpose of either self-promotion or promotion of others, whether it be for product, service, website, or blog. We encourage following the easy instructions in the Help Section to embed non-promotional YouTube videos on Theotokantown.com. One can put links to one's website or blog in the signature area.
The Theotokantown.com Personal Message system is not to be used to contact other members to solicit business for one’s service or product. If a member asks on the message board about a product or service you may contact them via private message, however it is a violation of the message board guidelines to send unsolicited personal messages to any of our members in order to promote your company or a product or service. Please place "looking for a job", "job opportunities", and "personal items for sale or rent" in the Theotokantown.com Classified Ad section. The message board is not to be used for this purpose.You also have the option to place this type of information in your signature area.
Below are additional guidelines that all of us need to follow to make this board a place for all to read, learn from and enjoy. Because of problems inherent to internet message boards, personal attacks, sexual content, sexual avatars and signatures, obscenities, and cussing, it is necessary to address these issues of the message board.
Board Etiquette Guidelines:
1. No personal attacks, threats or name calling on the board and in sending private messages and emails.
2. Members should have a single account. If individuals have multiple accounts, it may lead to permanent banning from the board. Only one person may use a registration. Giving a login and password to someone else to use is strictly forbidden. Giving it so someone that is not a member of Theotokantown.com will lead to permanent banning.
3. Do not use inappropriate user names i.e. racial slurs, profanity, vulgarity, etc.
4. No posting of sexually explicit images or offensive material in avatars, user title or in signatures. Including URL’s that link to inappropriate sites.
5. Please post in the appropriate forum. Moderators will possibly move your thread or post to the proper forum.
6. Try not to post multiple threads on the same topic.
7. Stay on topic. Don’t hijack a thread by changing the topic of the thread. If this does happen the post can be deleted.
8. When you copy and paste news articles or things from other web sites please post the URL, this brings credibility to your post.
9. Don’t feed the trolls. Trolls post messages that are inflammatory and only serve to incite fellow members and cause trouble on the board. When trolls are identified their posts can be edited and deleted by the moderators which could lead to banning. Furthermore, due to attacks on new posters by others that are calling them Trolls, we have no choice but to inactivate for a week or two anyone who calls another member a troll or even questions if they are a troll on the message board. What you should do instead is to hit the Report Abuse button or PM myself or any administrator and we will investigate it privately. Calling another member a troll or even speculating about it openly will no longer be tolerated. It is rude and is causing some new posters who are legitimate, pause for concern about posting.
10. No baiting posts. Posts made for the sole purpose of eliciting anger in another member or group of members on a thread is against the rules and will be edited or deleted.
11. No shouting. Posting in all capital letters is considered shouting.
12. Please don't argue with the administrators and moderators. Calling them out on the open boards will result in deletion. Please do not question their actions or motives in a message board thread. If you disagree with an action taken contact the administration by PM or Email.
13. Sending abusive PM's and/or emails to the administrators or moderators can lead to banning.
I HAVE READ THE FORGOING AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
