Hi everyone! We just wanted to post our new registration agreement. This agreement is slightly different from the one that most members agreed to when they created their accounts, so please review it. Remember: by contributing to our website, you are automatically agreeing to this policy. We have officially updated our registration page (as of 4/28/2012), so all new users will automatically have to read/agree to this policy.
Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that, in order to create your account, you agree to abide by the rules and policies detailed below. By creating an account on AfterlifeForums.com, or contributing to this website in any way, you are automatically agreeing to the policy below.
Although the administrators and moderators of AfterlifeForums.com will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review every message. All messages posted here express the views solely of their authors, and neither the owners of AfterlifeForums.com nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.
If any message posted by a user contains a link to an outside website, you may use that link only at your own risk. The owners of AfterlifeForums.com are not responsible for the content of any external websites. Should any such website be illegal or feature illegal file downloading, you will be held solely responsible for your activities on that website. You understand that the government in your country of residence has the right and the duty to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law for any of your illegal online actions.
Furthermore, you agree to refrain from posting any links to or supportive messages for illegal websites, downloading, and acts. You understand that, should you find such a link or message on this website, it is your obligation as a member to report it to the administrative team. You also understand that any fraudulent activity, including the unauthorized creation on duplicate accounts (multiple user accounts created by the same person) for any reason, will automatically result in the disabling of your account.
AfterlifeForums.com and its administration team are located in the United States of America, and therefore use that country’s laws to determine what is unlawful. You, as a member of this forum, are required to follow the laws of your country of residence as well as those of the United States.
By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise in violation of law. You also agree to refrain from posting spam messages which, for purposes of this contract, are defined as any messages or posts that are not relevant or related to the material on this website. Unauthorized advertising is included in this category, and is thus prohibited. In addition, you agree to abstain from publicly displaying links to websites that you own, operate, or profit from (even if they are relevant to the afterlife/spirituality), without permission from the administrative team.
Religious spamming, which we define as trying to overtly convert our forum members to your religion and/or repeatedly posting views that are contrary to our spiritual perspective, while refusing to allow a discussion of alternative views based upon facts and evidence, also is prohibited by this user agreement.
The administration of AfterlifeForums.com reserves the right to remove, edit, move, or close any content item for any reason, without specific notice or explanation.
Finally, you understand that any violations of these policies will lead to written warnings and/or the banning and disabling of your account, either permanently or temporarily. The administration of AfterlifeForums.com also reserves the right, in addition to disabling your account, to ban any Internet protocol (IP) addresses and email addresses associated with your account, if such action seems to be necessary. The administration is not required to issue a warning before proceeding to disable or ban your account.
If you have any questions about this new user agreement, please send me a private message or an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We thank you for your cooperation!
