Rules For This Forum

Welcome to friendvista.com. A great place to make new friends.

Friendvista.com provides message board services to you based on its rules outlined here. When using the forums provided by friendvista.com, you are subject to these posted terms.

Usage of the services on this site means acceptance of these rules.
The rules and regulations may be changed without direct notice to individual visitors.



Account Responsibility: Users are solely responsible for protecting their accounts from access by others.
It's not permitted to use a name of a TV program or their major roles as your accounts username. You are strongly encouraged to select a hard-to-guess password and not reuse that password on any other sites where it may be read by the owners or administrators of that site. Because of this rule, it is recommended that board users do not share their accounts with others, nor share their computers used to access the site with others, as the actions of some other person could easily directly impact all known shared message board accounts.

Content Notice: By viewing the site content, you agree that all content on the friendvista.com message boards is the responsibility of the person from which the content originated. You agree that friendvista.com is in no way responsible for all content that you personally post or upload. friendvista.com does not directly control any content posted on the boards, and does not guarantee the truthfulness or quality of any content. You agree that while using the friendvista.com message boards, you may be exposed to content that is offensive or objectionable, and that you will in no way hold friendvista.com liable in any way, shape, or form for any harm or loss that may come to you or others because of viewing this content. Friendvista.com is not responsible for screening content before it is posted, although an offensive language filter is installed on the system that will reject certain posts that may contain certain words considered offensive or used most often in an offensive way.

All advertising and/or posting of links to other sites that are deemed inappropriate or offensive is not permitted and may result in being banned.

Privacy and Release Information: Under normal circumstances, friendvista.com will never release your provided information to any third-party without a court order requiring us to do so. However, in cases of certain severe or repeated rule violations or illegal activities, we reserve the right to send any known information about you and your accounts to your ISP (including libraries, schools, and places of employment), e-mail service provider, your ISP account owner (if someone else is paying for it), and any parties whose copyright has clearly been infringed by your actions on the boards.

Illegal Activities: Please do not discuss illegal downloading in this forum (torrents, Youtube links, etc..). Posting of any copyrighted image, including photographs and screen caps is not allowed as it's a violation of the rules.

Negative Statements: Though informed opinions are always welcome on the forum, expressions of pure hatred are not. This applies whether the target is another user, an actor, a group of people in general, a public figure or a character. You are free to disagree with the actions or motivations of an individual or a character, but please try to stay away from statements that merely announce your hatred of a person or character. Though the character's feelings won't get hurt, repetitive expressions of hatred for a character can be taken the wrong way by other users. Such expressions don't add anything to the discussions on the forum so it's better not to include them.

Off-topic Posts: Please try to stick to the general topic of the thread in which you are posting. The occasional off-topic post is okay as long as everyone gets back to the original topic pretty quickly. If you find that you really want to discuss another topic, then you are always free to start up a new thread. (Before doing that, check to see that no other recent threads cover the same topic.) Comments that are just nonsense are considered SPAM, and are grounds for a ban.

Excessive Quoting: Users should not quote multiple messages unless absolutely necessary. Off-topic messages should not be quoted.

Violations Topics and Message Posts that Violate the Rules and Regulations- These will be deleted from the boards, and additional penalties may be applied at the moderator's discretion. Re-posting deleted violations (yours or those of others) is also considered a violation. Messages and topics may be removed for any reason at the sole discretion of friendvista.com and its appointed moderators. User accounts may be warned, suspended, or revoked for any reason at the sole discretion of friendvista.com and its appointed moderators. All determinations of what is "acceptable" and "unacceptable" content will be determined solely by friendvista.com and whoever it appoints as moderators. You agree that the decision of the moderators and administrators is final, and you may not legally contest their rulings.

Intentional, Repeated, or Severe Violations: Are cause for the banning of your account, all use of the boards from your IP address or your entire ISP, and friendvista.com contacting your ISP or other relevant parties about your activities.

BAN/Warning: A moderator will use his/her discretion when issuing a forum BAN. This means you might be issued a warning first, or depending on the seriousness of the problem, you might be instantly banned. A warning might be given publicly in a post or via a Private Message (PM). Moderators on Friendsvista are volunteers and work to keep the forum a fun place for all to be. Rude, disrespectful or abusive posts made towards moderators (or fellow members) may incur a BAN. The BAN may be permanent.

Everything Else: Since we can't have a rule to cover everything, this is the rule to cover everything. These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. We also request that you abide by basic internet etiquette and refrain from overuse of typing in all caps. Friendvista.com reserves the right to choose the guidelines of objectionable content based on its knowledge of users and company policy. These issues are left to the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, racist, sexist, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or that otherwise violates any law or encourages conduct constituting a criminal offence.
