Just a friendly reminder to please post with respect. Flame wars do nothing but make EVERYONE look bad. If you see someone with content that incites negative response then don't respond. These people are called trolls that post flame bait and want you to respond. The best thing to do is to not respond, inform the Moderators and Admin and we'll take care of the problem.

Here is part of the Terms and Conditions you agreed to when you registered to the forum:
You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful,
threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any
applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently
banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all
posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the
webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to
remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit.

Post subject:  Let's cut down on duplicate threads... please!

Dear Members -
In order to save everyone the confusion of searching through multiple threads on the same topic, please check to make sure that the new topic you are posting has not been created before.

Its hard to sift through all the threads we currently have (it is a very busy forum), but if we can cut back on the extra threads, that'd be great.

You can also use the search feature of phpBB2. It works pretty good!

Thanks you!

Post subject:  You MUST use an active email address when you register!

We have had a rash of people trying to register for the Pageantry Forums using email addresses that are either discontinued, over quota, not accepting emails at this time, have blocks on incoming email, or the famous user known. Using an email address that will not function just means that you are wasting your time trying to register. If you can't receive the confirmation email from the forum, then you can not activate your new user account. Thus are are wasting your time and mine, since I must go in and delete all the unactivated accounts. Forcing everyone to have a real email address on file is what keeps everybody honest, no lurkers or spammers allowed here!

For those that are worried about your privacy, no one but me can view your actual email address, and I NEVER give them out to anyone! Addresses are hidden from view at all times on the forum, so nobody will be able to email you unless they use the forum's internal email form. This internal form does not allow anyone to see your real email address unless you are the one sending email using this form. The recipient will see your address so they can respond to you. So if you do not want your email address given out in this way, then use Private Messaging instead.

If, after you register you want to change your email address you can, but it must be changed to another "real" address. The forum will temporarily deactivate your user account until you receive the new confirmation email that will allow you to re-activate your account. Also, try to keep your email address current, if you change your email address be nice and change it in your profile so that the private message announcements and email from the forum can still be delivered to you.

Thank you!
