Twin Galaxies Forum Policies And Terms Of Service
TG Forum Policy

As a member of this TG Forum, you have the right to voice your opinions and views on the topics we cover. You also have the right to disagree with official TG positions and the opinions of other Forum members. However, because TG forums are "public" spaces, a few basic rules of the road are necessary, and you will be held accountable for your actions.

TG Forum - Rules of the Road

As a TG Forum member, at all times you will:
  • act responsibly;
  • be respectful;
  • act in a professional manner;
  • Not display ABUSIVE behavior – it will get you banned immediately and permanently and there will beno second chances or room for consideration of the same. Treat other Forum members with the same honesty, tact, courtesy, and respect that you would want from them. No flames, no threats, no profanity, no bullying. No Threats. Threats are not tolerated and are taken very seriously. If you threaten anyone while using this platform, we will immediately report your threats to the authorities and you will suffer the consequences resulting therefrom.

    If you are not an an adult (age 13-18 ), there's no time like the present to learn fast how to behave properly in a public forum. TG adheres to the laws of The Bahamas and anyone under the age of 13 will not be permitted as a member without parental and/or legal consent.

    Stay on topic! We are not not here to discuss politics, religion, race, gender, war & peace, and/or any other unrelated subject matter. Consider these "rules for success”:
  • Control your own destiny or someone else will.
  • Consider these "rules for success."
  • Control your own destiny or someone else may.
  • Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it would be.
  • Be candid, tactful, and polite with everyone, especially those you don't agree with.
  • Change before you have to.
  • You agree to adhere to the TG Member Contact Policy
This Policy is Required Because:

-- Abusive behavior in online forums is a very real and growing concern for every organization that has a Web presence. Real people have been hurt (sometimes with devastating and even fatal consequences) because of abusive posts. TG does not have to tolerate such behavior and we won't. As in other forums, you have NO "free-speech" rights in TG forums.

-- The potential for child abuse and other illegal practices unfortunately exists in any online forum. TG will cooperate fully and without reservation with the authorities to identify any such activity.

-- To combat abusive posting, ALL TG forums are monitored and members are required to identify themselves by their REAL name. Anonymous posting is not allowed. IP addresses and other appropriate information are logged and retained in accordance with state and Federal regulations and the Computer Misuse Act of The Bahamas.

-- For the present, all Forum posts must be in the English language, others will be deleted. As soon as possible, we intend to actively support other major languages, and hope to provide limited translation resources where we can. Please be patient.

-- These kinds of "rules of the road" have been adopted by many organizations to help safeguard their forum members and they reflect the evolving norms of acceptable online community behavior.

So, What Does This Mean To You?

Obey the law. Do not post any information or conduct any online activity that may violate applicable laws and regulations.

Behave. Always conduct yourself like an adult. Please do not allow your emotions to take control where you become so angry that you find yourself in breach of these rules and/or more importantly the laws and regulations governing this site.

Whatever your motivation for posting a comment or reply to a TG Forum your fear or anger never gives you the right to abuse, insult, or brow-beat any individual. It does not. You will be immediately expelled from the site without reentry.

Anyone can make a mistake-once, but if your behavior is consistently and deliberately malicious, you will be banned from TG forums and competitions. Neither TG nor its Forum members will tolerate bullying, threatening, or abusive behavior.

Keep comments on topic. Any comment that appears to be off-topic will be edited or more likely just deleted. We encourage you to be precise and concise in your posting(less is more). Do not aimlessly spend your time on a long-winded exposition.

You must register for our forums using your real name and a validated email address.

Misrepresenting your identity will get you banned from TG forums.

Contacting another Twin Galaxies member who has not consented to the same and/or that you do not know personally, outside of the Twin Galaxies website platform, is prohibited and may result in a 6-month or longer ban.
Please see our TG Member Contact Policy for more detail.

Other than for the usual law enforcement exceptions, we will not post or share your email address or any other private information. Your full name is not considered private information and can be used for the purpose of score recognition and other Twin Galaxies site functions.

External linking – A few external links are permitted if they are relevant to the original post and to your comments. Linking to illegal, offensive, profane, pornographic or gambling sites is strictly prohibited. No links to any inappropriate or offensive material; no upload, post, email or otherwise transmission of any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable. Failure to adhere to this will lead to your dismissal from the forum.

Profanity – Moderately colorful language is allowed – we are gamers, after all, but we consider blatant profanity offensive and we will delete it. We may not be able to define profanity, but we know it when we see it. This includes profane, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, obscene or sexually explicit language or comments.

Personal attacks – personal attacks on anyone will result in an immediate and permanent ban. This includes libelous comments and persistent misstatements of fact or threats against others. And to remind you, threats of physical violence are still against the law in most places on this planet.

Copyright and Trademark Laws – Willfully violating copyright or trademark laws will result in being banned from the forum. Do NOT post material that you do not own.

Impersonation of any person or entity, including, but not limited to falsely stating or otherwise misrepresenting an affiliation with a person or entity will result in being immediately banned from the forum.

TG's Responsibility – While we encourage comments that challenge or offer constructive criticism, we reserve the right to edit or remove any post, for any reason at any time. We also reserve the right to do any of the following for any reason at any time: remove, re-categorize, re-list, un-list, delete, restore, adjust, invalidate, validate, credit, or discredit any score, performance, or other data that may be currently stored or has ever been stored in any Twin Galaxies owned, controlled, or managed database.

For Clarity:

By accessing "Twin Galaxies" (hereinafter "we", "us", "our", "Twin Galaxies"), you agree to be legally bound by the following and above terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms, then please do not access and/or use "Twin Galaxies" as you are not authorized to do so. We may change these terms at any time and it would be prudent to review this regularly as your continued usage of "Twin Galaxies" after changes mean you agree to be legally bound by these terms as they are updated and/or amended.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws, be they of your country, the country where "Twin Galaxies" is hosted or International Law. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently suspended, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed required by us. The IP address of all posts are recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that "Twin Galaxies" has the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should we see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered to being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, "Twin Galaxies" shall NOT be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

The terms of this Agreement will, where possible, be interpreted and enforced so as to sustain their legality and enforceability, reads as if they cover on the specific situation to which they are being applied and enforced to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law. If any term of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, then all other terms of this Agreement will nevertheless remain in full force and effect, and such term automatically will be amended so that it is valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, but as close to the parties' original intent as is permissible.

TG and both Creator and Claimant acknowledge and agree that this Agreement has been entered into in and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.
