The AADC Research Trust Rules and Regulations.
This document is designed to clarify various responsibilities of community members here at AADC Research. Please read it and become familiar with it, it's terms are retroactive and agreed by team and group members.Forum rulesPosts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting. Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning.

Members are asked to not act as "back seat moderators". If members note an issue, which contravenes something in this policy document, they are welcome to bring it to the attention of a member of the Moderator Team. Only do this if a moderator team member has not replied within 48 hours. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Posting unsuitable or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Users linking to or asking for information or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline ([IMG][/IMG]) image tags, where available, pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed. Members should post in a way, which is consistent with "normal writing". That is users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or coloured text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Spam is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes offering hosting services (charged and free), Medical services or products, solicitation etc. Recruiting members for your own research is not permitted and is also considered spam. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. See specific item on spam and 3rd party linking for more information. Members are asked to not disclose to any 3rd party, board, or list any vulnerabilities in this forum before first notifying the administrators. You should submit all finds to our security tracker. Time should be allowed for us, at least 14 working days wherever possible, to respond.

Rules - The moderating, support and other teams reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Members and not users. The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging.

Policing - AADC Research operates a three-strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all offences in a three month period. If the need arises for a fourth warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days. Arguing with forum members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above. Users who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to contact the relevant forum leader, e.g. if warned by a moderator you should contact the Moderator team leader. If they feel you were treated badly they remove a warning. Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user. An exception to the three-strike rule applies when users contact forum members personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While AADC Research may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence.
