We are trying to provide the highest quality community experience for all of our members and following these guidelines is the best way to maintain a quality environment for all age groups. If we find that you break any of these rules, your account may be disabled and your posting privileges removed. These rules are very basic and we hope that you read them fully. Thanks for your cooperation.
Be nice and the others will be nice back to you!
No Graphic Material of either a macabre or pornographic nature.
Any posts or links to such content will not be tolerated.
No Warez (links) & Cracks.
Help, requests or posts that discuss circumvention. This includes linking to illegally obtained software, movies & music files – posting about it, and suggesting to get it.
No Cursing or Swear words.
We encourage you to use our Communities as a forum to debate topics, but please use proper adjectives to express yourself. We do not tolerate circumvention of our word filter or abuse upon another member.
Don’t attack others. Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated. Challenge others’ points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully … without insult and personal attack.
Think before you post or speak: Do you really want to put your address or telephone number on a public discussion forum? We encourage you to keep personal information personal.
In the same vein, do not ask for personal information from others. Discussion forum posts that request members to submit personal information to another party will be removed. Information that should be considered personal includes but is not limited to your home phone number, name, and age. If you must give this out for any reason, please do so privately.
There may be places where explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics or behaviour is appropriate however Agraw.com is not one of those places. Posts containing explicit, obscene or vulgar language will be removed. Similarly, posts that solicit or offer explicit or X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or similar content files will be deleted without notice! Links to Websites with adult content/images anywhere on the site will be removed. Simply put, we do not wish to be seen as supporting any site that contains adult content – adult content being defined as any material that you would not feel comfortable showing to your spouse, your teenagers, or your boss and co-workers. In other words, anything which is “NWS” (not work safe). This represents our values and our desire to appeal to the widest possible audience not to mention keeping clear of any restrictions that our present or future advertisers might have regarding acceptable content.
The Agraw.com’s website: resources, articles and discussions are based on basic, appropriate professional ethical behaviour. Unethical behaviour: use of other admin’s member lists for PM invites, email invites, spamming, warez, license sharing, and other illegal activities are completely inappropriate and will result in the loss of membership at Agraw.com.
-The maximum font size allowed in signature lines is 2.
-The maximum number of lines in a signature is 3.
-Signature text should comply with our regular posting rules. No all-caps, no alternating caps, etc..
-Signature text that is too long or obtrusive will be removed. This would include overly creative use of punctuation, color, etc. which make the signature too flashy.
-Signatures with just your username will be removed. Usernames are on the top of every post, so there’s no need to have it in your signature too.
-No affiliate links!
-Links to other Communities may include referral ID’s.
If your signature is in violation of any of these new rules, the Staff may remove it without prior notice. If you have any questions as to whether something is acceptable, please PM a Staff Member.
Do not post the same discussion more than once on a discussion forum or on many forums. Duplicate discussions are frustrating and counterproductive for other members, especially for those whose time and energy is limited. Duplicate discussions will be deleted.
No Advertising – Spam
Do not heedlessly place your advertisements through the Discussion Forums. This will be considered SPAM and could result in the loss of your Agraw.com Community Membership. Affiliate links are not allowed within the forums. If you wish to promote a particular website contact us.
No Abuse of our messenging systems (PM’s, IM’s, Chat, and email form)
Personal Messaging is provided to the members of Agraw.com as a service intended to enhance the Community experience. The purpose of personal messaging is to allow for discreet conversations to take place between members. This privilege is not to be abused! Solicitation, spamming, or harassment of any kind is strictly forbidden. Any member receiving an inappropriate personal message should forward that message to an Administrator or Moderator right away. Although PM’s are normally only accessible by those who send and receive them, they are part of the database and as such, property of Agraw.com. An Administrator, if so inclined, could locate the Private Messages in the database and read them. They are private, but not necessarily secret. In addition, Private Messages are not intended to deprive the Community of valuable information or experiences which could benefit the entire group. Please do not use private messages if the content of the message can be helpful to others.
The internet is a big place, and it’s no surprise that from time to time a site will come along whose mission is to occupy the same niche as Agraw.com. We have no issue with that. However, it would be against our best interests, and therefore the best interests of our members, for us to allow such sites to build upon our popularity by promoting themselves on Agraw.com. Therefore, no competing site may attempt to gain traffic from Agraw.com in any way, including but not limited to, links in posts, signatures, profile information, PM’s, emails, or IM’s.
No alternate accounts are allowed.
Should you be disciplined with a restriction or ban, you are not allowed to open a new account to obtain freedom to post. Restrictions and bans are given for a reason, and usurping that ability by re-registering is not tolerated. If another account is opened, that account will be banned immediately, and the original account will be further penalized.
These rules are subject to modification and alteration in the future as the Admins of Agraw.com deemed fit and necessary.
