Update Default Terms of Service

Post by Kynamic on October 17th 2015, 6:44 am

The default terms of service are flawed and contains some grammatical and spelling errors. So I say time for an update?

This definitely needs to be changed since all new users see this before registering, and it can turn them away before they even create their account. Sad Shit

Here are the current default TOS:
The moderators of this forum will try hard to edit or remove reprehensible messages as soon as possible. However, it is impossible for them to review all the messages. You thus admit that all the messages posted on this forum express the sight and opinion of their respective authors and not those of the moderators or the Webmaster (except messages posted by them) and consequently, they cannot be held responsible of the discussions.

This forum uses cookies to store information on your computer. These cookies will not contain any personal information; they are only used to improve comfort while browsing. The address e-mail is only used in order to confirm the details of your registration as your password (and also to send you back your password if you forget it).

- Aggressive or slanderous messages, as well as personal insults and critics, the coarseness and vulgarities, and more generally any message contravening the French laws are prohibited.
- Messages who promote - or evoke - illegal practices are prohibited.
- If you post informations which come from another site
, look first if the site in question doesn't forbid it. Show the address of the site in question in order to respect the work of their administrators!
- Please post your messages only once. The repetitions are unpleasant and useless!
- Please make an effort on grammar and spelling. SMS-style language (ex: r u sk8ing?) is not advised!

Any message contravening the listing above will be edited or removed without additional notice or justification within deadlines which will depend on the availability of the moderators. Any abuse will involve the cancellation of the registration. Internet is neither an anonymous space, nor a space of no-right! We reserve ourselves the possibility of informing your access provider and/or the legal authorities of any malevolent behavior. An IP address of each poster is recorded in order to help us to make you respect these conditions.


These are some edits I recommend. All edits convey the same message perceived previously.

We reserve the possibility of informing your access provider and/or the legal authorities of any malevolent or illegal behavior. An IP address of each poster is recorded in order to help enforce these conditions.

Notes:
For now, my only edit towards the first paragraph is to change Webmaster to Administrator, as that is what the owner of the forum is referred to throughout the website.


I hope this forum is found useful and that corrections can be implemented!

Since this deals with translations and Ange Tuteur has given the link to the translation topic, this will be archived.
