PostSubject: Rules Of The Forum   Wed Dec 12, 2007 1:13 pm

Ok, we all hate the boring bit, but there are rules for using this forum, by registering, you agreed to the following rules, this is a subtle reminder to those who may say 'Sorry, I forgot...' whilst we want to keep this a friendly forum, we will not allow its abuse, so if you are unsure of a post, either re-read this or ask an admin or mod. These rules also apply to the chatbox.

Thank You

This forum is for friendly chat amongst like minded fishkeepers.

Making a Post

While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

When posting please keep the use of textspeak/slang to a minimum so that all members can easily read and understand them.

We aim for this forum to be suitable for viewing for people of all ages so please do not post any abusive, vulgar, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may prove offensive or may violate applicable laws.

Abuse or Bullying in ANY form will NOT be tolerated!

No political debates will be allowed on the forum and any threads which move into a political debate will be LOCKED as soon as this is picked up on by a moderator or a member of the TFF Admin Team.

Any members seen to be making political gestures or expressing political opinions in a way which is deemed unsuitable for the forum may be expelled from the site.

The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

Tropical Fish Fanatics has a relaxed approach to Private Messaging.

We have created the Private Messaging function for your privacy and therefore have not given any of our moderators the access to read, edit or delete any of your private messages.
***Please be aware that whilst the TFF Admin Team will do our best to stop any unwanted internet traffic and protect you as much as possible, the internet is not a totally secure place to post personal details, please keep bank details and telephone numbers to e-mail***

PLEASE NOTE: The Owners and Administrators of these forums accept no responsibility for any loss, damage or cases of identity fraud due to the negligence of our members. This is why we request that bank details and home addresses only be sent via e-mail from your own secure inbox (not on TFF) or over the telephone/in person. If you do wish to post any personal details of this nature on the main forums or in Private Messaging, you do so at YOUR OWN RISK!

There are many views on the issue of Spamming. Our approach to this is also quite relaxed. However, we do wish to request that members keep spamming (unrelated posting) to our Chill Out area and General Discussion forums. Spamming (unrelated posting) in the fish forums can upset other members so please try to keep this to a minimum in there.
We are a friendly and informative site aiming to give people more information with regards to fish keeping without having to trawl through pages of useless information from Google or suchlike search engines.

Advertising or promotion of any other website unless specifically approved by a site administrator, i.e a member of the Admin Team, is not allowed.

There will be no posting of URL's or linking to competitor sites or forums like this one unless posted by Site Adminstration Only.


The TFF Admin Team reserve the right to expell any member without prior notice being given, should that member be deemed to behave in a way which challenges the simple rules of this site. We also reserve the right to give no explanation as to the reason for expulsion. Failure to abide by these rules may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed).
