Terms of service questions

Post by Breezey on August 2nd 2010, 10:12 pm

Why are Forumotions TOS posted as our TOS for each separate forum? Some of those rules aren't things I would normally tell people signing up for my forum and it makes it look like they are my forum rules, which they're not. Shouldn't those be TOS for people making sites from Forumotion only?

- 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!

That is not my style or how I would post rules at all. Sounds a little on the bossy side with those exclamation marks added.

When did these TOS get added or changed? I don't remember seeing all of that before.

However, it is impossible for them to review all the messages. (It's not impossible on my forum and makes it sound like I can't keep up, which I can) I always know what is posted and review all messages daily.

I would really prefer TOS for my forum be from me for my forum and actually fit the forum, not a forum that does things differently and posts differently.

I know I can add my own rules, but that doesn't change the fact that some things already in the TOS are not how I would post them or fitting for how I run my forum.

Any thoughts, ideas, etc.. on this?

Sorry but these rules have always been on the forum since Forumotion opened.

You won't be able to remove them unless you have punbb or phpbb2 => http://help.forumotion.com/tricks-tips-f32/changing-the-default-rules-to-your-own-t52766.htm

So, I either have to change versions or keep rules that don't make it appealing to be a member?

What happens to my forum if I switch from phpbb3 to phpbb2? Does it cancel out all the changes and things I have made already?

If you change to phpbb3 to phpbb2 or punbb and change the rules and then go back to phpbb3 the changes will be gone.

What if I switch from phpbb3 to phpbb2 and keep it? Will I have to start over on the whole appearance to have it the way I have it now?

I see. I am hoping Forumotion might give some thought to making it possible for all to make the same changes, no matter which version is used.

I am also hoping Forumotion will post those TOS somewhere to be used as a reference. I don't find them anywhere, unless I make a bogus account and see them.
