    Rules and Policies July 2018

    These rule and policies are intended to make AfterLifeForums a safe and welcoming community for us all. Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with them.


    Respect
    Everyone should be treated with respect even if you disagree with their ideas. Members have the right to voice opinions without fear of disrespect or ridicule. If you feel that is not happening please contact an administrator for investigation and action when needed.

    Unacceptable Language
    Swearing, cursing, obscene, vulgar, or hateful language will not be tolerated anywhere including the private mailing system.

    Images/Videos
    Members are permitted to post both pictures and videos, so long as they pertain to the afterlife or to spirituality. Videos or images must not have a rating higher than PG-13 as this is a family-friendly website.

    Signatures
    Members have the option of creating a signature to be automatically added at the bottom of their posts. Links in them must be approved by an administrator prior to posting. Unrelated or commercial links are not allowed. If you are unsure about the suitability of a link please contact an administrator.

    Links
    Please do not post links to commercial or irrelevant websites. This rule also applies when sending links in private messages and when posting links on your profile page. If you are unsure about the suitability of a link, please contact an administrator.

    Spamming
    The posting of content that does not relate to the afterlife or spirituality is considered spamming and is prohibited. Religious spamming, defined as attempting to convert forums readers to your religious views through threats or intimidation, is also prohibited. Unauthorized advertising is spam and will be removed.

    Multiple Accounts
    Members are allowed to routinely create only one account per person. If you have a particular reason for creating a second account, please contact an administrator.

    Complaints
    We ask that members do not question or discuss administrative issues in the public forums. This is never appropriate! If you have an issue with our actions please contact an administrator using private messaging.

    Administrative Actions
    Administrative actions, including banning a member, closing or removing a thread or post is a serious matter. All such decisions are made only after careful consideration. Typically a private warning message is all that's needed. Further disruptions may lead to disciplinary actions or banning. In cases of fraud or extreme abuse members may be banned without warning.

    Suicide
    Nothing posted in these forums should be construed as a reason to end your life!
    Although we understand the afterlife to be wonderful it is taught that those there who had taken their own lives, expecting to escape their problems, greatly regretted doing so. Ending one's own life is a short-term fix with unexpected ramifications.
    If you feel helpless, under pressure or suicidal please seek support and help from a mental health specialist, a general practitioner or a hospital emergency room. Or take a look in ALF's resource area to find organisations who have trained counsellors you can speak to. http://afterlifeforums.com/resources/
