All account holders are required by SixServe to follow the terms enclosed in this document. Any member of our community that decides otherwise will immediately face the consequences. Consequences will depend purely on the intensity of the term that is breached. If any individual does not agree with this contract that user is not entitled to Free Hosting provided by SixServe. SixServe, for many reasons, wishes to keep its services available for a long time, we can only do this with the user's support. Please follow this contract.
By disobeying this part of the contract, which is purely for the forum (community) section of our services, users may be banned indefinitely or definitely, depending on the infraction. Users may also receive a temporary privilege of posting removal. Our services are a privilege, not a right.
SixServe will not condone with any user who reports a fellow user without having a valid reason and evidence of the charge. Any user who is found slandering another user will receive two infractions against their account and all staff members will be aware of the slander incident so they can take careful measures if another report is received by the user.
SixServe prohibits the hijacking of an user's thread. Hijacking is considered taking a thread, asking your own question, and expecting a reply directly to you. The support threads are to made by the user who needs support and the staff will only reply to that user. In some cases, staff may merge posts. If this happens, the thread will then be marked [OPEN] and you can post your question as long as it is relative to the thread.
SixServe prohibits the use of inappropriate language. Inappropriate language is considered to be anything sexual and is judged at the discretion of the staff member on duty. An infraction will be placed on the account that posts inappropriate language. The post will also be removed or censored (depending on the severity of the post).
SixServe prohibits arguing or flaming in the forums. The forums are made for support and general/civilized socialization. Any user found flaming at another user will be punished and the post(s) will be removed per the discretion of the staff member on duty.
SixServe prohibits bumping posts. Posts that have been inactive for more than one month are considered inactive. Anyone activating these posts (unless for a reasonable reason) will be given an infraction. Anyone bumping their posts will also receive an infraction. Bumping a post is the act of posting for no reason to make your post at the top of the list. The staff generally start with posts at the bottom of the pile anyways.
SixServe will not condone with people who are impersonating official staff members of SixServe. If you are found impersonating a staff member, you will be notified of your action and receive an infraction. If it is severe, you may be suspended or banned from the forums.
SixServe will never condone with posts that harass other users. SixServe believes that all people should be treated equally and the way everyone wants to be treated. The SixServe staff team will immediately suspend any user who is harassing another user. Harassment is by discretion of the staff member on duty and/or whoever reports the post. The post will be reviewed if reported.
SixServe staff will remove posting privileges from any user who is misleading in any post they post.
Staff will also remove posting privileges from users who are continuously posting videos that do not relate to the community, pictures or other content that may be malicious.
Staff are entitled to remove posting privileges per their discretion.
SixServe prohibits the posting of explicit pictures, websites, or movies. Any post containing explicit content will be removed from the website permanently and the user who posted the content will be permanently banned.
Any user who creates another forum account after being banned from the forums will be banned (by IP, e-mail, and account) permanently.
