Thread: Terms of Service and Forum Rules Update

  1. #31
    New section outlining the terms by which company representatives are present in Anthrogenica:

    1.7 Certified company representatives are permitted to be present on the forum. To maintain a distinction with other members or a representative's own personal account, they are signified publicly as 'Company Rep' accounts. With the exception of increased PM space, these accounts possess no additional functionality compared to regular accounts. Finally, 'Company Reps' have no administrative oversight over forum subsections named after their companies and have no access to any private forum or member information.
    Forum Reminders - Please remember to:
    Report any problematic content • Adhere to Anthrogenica Hidden Content • Discuss respectfully • Be mindful of sharing user data (both yours and others) • English language only in main forum area • PM 'Moderator' or 'Administrator' accounts for basic maintenance tasks (not personal accounts) • PM this account regarding member ban info or forum inquiries

    One addition:

    As part of our recent anti-spam measures, new members (defined as those with less than 10 posts and less than 14 days registration history) are prevented from posting links on Anthrogenica.

    New members who eventually meet this simple criteria will be automatically promoted to the "Regular Users" usergroup. You do not need to contact any members of staff for this to take place.

    2.1 New members, defined as those with less than 10 posts and less than 14 days registration history, are subject to a link posting restriction. Once a new member exceeds 10 posts and a presence of 14 days in Anthrogenica, they will automatically be promoted to the "Regular Users" usergroup.

    One modification:

    In recent weeks, several registered members with minimal past activity have requested we completely remove their accounts and posts from Anthrogenica. All of these users have publicly maintained anonymity and no clear reason has been offered regarding the basis for these data removal requests.

    As said requests appear spurious, we do not ordinarily entertain even account closure and in the interest of reducing our administration's (never-ending) workload, the following addition has been made to an existing Term:

    2.9 Member accounts are not normally suspended or closed once activated. Users wishing to remove themselves from the community are advised to simply withhold from logging in. In addition, we will not routinely entertain requests to completely clear a member's public history and/or permanently deleting their accounts.
