About the Rules

Registration to our webmaster forums is free and comes with many benefits not afforded to guests. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below.

Section 1 - General Forum Rules

1.1 Understand that AHFB2000.com relies on members helping other members. This is your community, it is what you make it.

1.2 Your postings on the AHFB2000.com Webmaster Forum will become public, your text will be available to anyone with an internet connection. Think before you type, we do not remove posts by request.

1.3 Although the administrators and moderators of AHFB2000.com will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners, administrators or moderators of AHFB2000.com will be held responsible for the content of any message.

1.4 By participating in the AHFB2000.com Webmaster Forums, you agree that AHFB2000.com shall have unlimited and irrevocable rights (including economic, moral and all other rights that may exist in such material) and license to use, display, publish or communicate to the public, permit others to publish the messages, online and offline, for a fee or otherwise, in whole or in part, throughout the world and in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed without need of any notice, renumeration, compensation, royalties or attribution to the poster.

1.5 Copyrighted material is ineligible for inclusion on our forum unless the source is clearly stated and verified, preferably with a corresponding link to the original work.

1.6 Use of the AHFB2000.com Webmaster Forums for the purpose of self promotion is prohibited. Information on spamming members may be exchanged with other forum owners. Members who spam in this fashion agree that all rights listed under the privacy policy of AHFB2000.com are forfeited.

1.7 Members may have only 1 user login, multiple registrations are disallowed. Members may not login using the login information of another user. If you wish to change your user name you may request this through the contact us link at the bottom of every page.

1.8 The Webmaster Forums at AHFB2000.com are open to all races, religions and sexual preferences. Hateful comments towards anothers race, religion or sexuality, be they members or non-members will result in an immediate and permanant ban.

1.9 By registering at the AHFB2000.com Webmaster Forums you agree to adhere to these rules, as well as any rules placed at the top of specific forums in either an "announcement" thread or a "sticky" thread.

1.11 Do not use AHFB2000.com as a source for free custom work or as a source to have your homework finished for you. Let us know what efforts you have put into fixing the problem yourself. This not only assists in solving your problem, but shows you have tried helping yourself first.

Section 2 - Inappropriate Content

2.1 Keep profanity to a minimum. The best policy is to swear at websites rather than on them. Our badwords filter is minimal, and forum participants are automatically considered mature enough to exercise restraint in their language. Nobody should have to point out what language is over the line.

2.2 Once enough quality posts have been made members will be allowed to post relevant links. Links to any site or web content considered unsuitable by the management of this website are forbidden, this includes but is not limited to pornography, gambling or hate sites. Posting of affiliate links are expressly forbidden. Moderators have full authority to use their discretion in determining the appropriateness of links or other content.

2.3 On occasion you may desire to place a screenshot or an image to help describe a website issue. Images may only be used when uploaded as an attachment. Inserting a fullsize image into a forum post is prohibited.

2.4 Do not contact anyone to suggest your product or service who is not explicitly expecting you to contact them. If you gleaned information from anywhere other than the advertising forums and use that to contact someone and present an offer, it's SPAM.

2.5 You may not solicit any external source to post on this forum regarding your company, services, or products; or any company, services, or products you are or may be associated with.

2.6 You may not post words or URLs that are censored by adding spaces, dots, or substituting characters; or by any other means in an attempt to defeat any censors put in place by AHFB2000.com.

2.7 Any posts that encourage illegal intent will be removed and the account disabled.

2.8 Posting of email addresses is forbidden. If you would like to be contacted via email by other members you must enable this option in the forum control panel.

2.9 ANYBODY emailing or private messaging admins or moderators for website assistance will have these privledges removed. If you have emailed any of us for help and have not rec'd a response, do not expect one, your messages have been deleted. If you have made it to the contact or PM button you have seen the forums, how do they look? see all the questions that have rec'd answers? Good questions and good answers both from good folks, follow the lead!

Section 3 - Rules for posting or replying to classifieds

3.1 AHFB2000.com was founded on premise of people helping people. The Classified section is a method to help members who have been helpful to others. Though we usually give the first classified post "free of charge", any more than 1 classified post from a non-contributor will be considered spam and all classified posts (including the first freebie) are subject to removal.

3.2 Posts in the classified section may not account for more than 500f a members total post account. In other words, helping in other sections of the forum buys the right to post a classified. If you have signed up for the sole purpose of posting repeated classifieds your posts and posting privledges will be removed.

3.3 Posting of "fluff" posts in order to maintain the ability to post classifieds will not be tolerated.

3.4 There will be no links to third party sites for which the potential customer may view "more information". In other words, you may not make a post "Great site for sale visit ebay for details". Either post all of the details in your post or expect the post and posting privledges to be removed.

Section 4 - Signature rules

4.1 Signatures, once enabled must be setup in your profile, and not manually added to your messages.

4.2 Signatures may contain no more than 2 links.

4.3 Font sizes may not be larger than the default forum font.

Section 5 - Additional

5.1 AHFB2000.com moderators have absolute authority, and are granted unequivocal discretion at editing or striking any post for unsuitable language and otherwise objectionable content, or warning, restricting, and banning members as necessary.

5.2 Should you feel you have been treated unfairly by any AHFB2000.com staff member, you may appeal to the forum administrator.
