ConstantChatter Forum FAQ
Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.
The Message Board is a registration-based bulletin board which posts messages in real-time. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of ConstantChatter or any entity associated with ConstantChatter. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
The Message Board is provided as a community tool for the purpose of allowing group discussions relevant to specific topics.
In certain forums, moderators assigned by ConstantChatter may post additional forum rules or offer additional guidance, including but not limited to general tone, subject matter, use of signatures or images in posts, etc. Such guidelines serve as an amendment to the TOS. Awareness of these forum rules and adherance to moderator guidance is the responsibility of the user. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in restricted access to some Message Board features including but not limited to posting privileges.
Although ConstantChatter does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever.
We also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.
Member-generated advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are not permitted on this Message Board and may result in restricted access to some Message Board features including but not limited to posting privileges.
Cross-posting messages to multiple forums is considered spamming and may result in restricted access to some Message Board features including but not limited to posting privileges.
