Post  sanderson 3/28/2014, 6:50 pm

Periodically, it is good to review the Terms of Service (TOS) to remind ourselves of the purpose of the Forum and the guidelines established to keep it a family-friendly and fun Forum. Very rarely, someone, usually a new member, will need to be reminded of these Terms. But, when an experienced member knowingly and blatantly abuses these privileges, the privileges will be revoked.

A member recently lost their Private Message (PM) privileges due to misuse by soliciting (forbidden in the TOS) another site through numerous PMs. Rest assured, it's perfectly acceptable to mention other sites as part of sharing gardening knowledge or help with a specific topic. But, a mass solicitation through PMs is not acceptable.

PMs are very useful for side-bar conversations and sharing information that the rest of the members do not need to know or see. They are completely private. No one can see PMs except the parties involved. However, an inappropriate PM can be reported to the Administrator or Moderators for appropriate action, be it a friendly reminder, warning or revocation.


Forum Terms of Service

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.

By clicking on " I agree to these terms " below:
   - You acknowledge to have fully read these current rules;
   - You commit yourself to respect unreservedly these current rules;
   - You grant the moderators of this forum the right to delete, move or edit any discussion subject at any moment.




Please read this part:

(Above is the stock, boilerplate TOS that comes with the forum software.  It's the stuff that nobody ever reads.  Below was written by forum administrators specifically for the SFG forum.)

   1. This is a family friendly forum. Always has been, always will be. Please post accordingly.

   2. The founder of the forum worked hard to create an atmosphere that is friendly, fun, supportive, positive, and best for the commons. It is the administrator's responsibility to maintain that atmosphere in a manner consistent with current board management practices, including revocation of posting privileges. Please do your best to support that philosophy.

   3. We have an off-topic forum for conversations that aren't SFG specific. However, as with most forums, we ask that the topics of politics, religion, and others that invariably lead to heated arguments, not be discussed.

   4. No soliciting.

   5. We encourage and value your participation, and ask that you respect our guidelines.

Thanks Sanderson,
The TOS is important to sort of keep the peace between forum members. But, some folks do not know what 'family friendly' means!

The TOS has been brought up several times since I became a member. The following line always gets me and I've asked about it before. So, my question is: How are we to know what the French laws are? Jo Ann


"and more generally any message contravening the French laws are prohibited."

Periodically, it is good to review the Terms of Service (TOS) (above).  Also, non-members can preview the TOS and understand how important members are to each other and how the TOS helps us keep our friendships. You are a great group of folks. I love you

Happy New Year of 2017 to everyone!  To start off the year, I want to remind everyone of the pesky little Terms of Service.  

Periodically, it is good to review the Terms of Service (TOS) to remind ourselves of the purpose of the Forum and the guidelines established to keep it a family-friendly and fun Forum. Very rarely, someone, usually a new member, will need to be reminded of these Terms. But, when an experienced member knowingly and blatantly abuses these privileges, the privileges will be revoked.

A while ago, a member lost their Private Message (PM) privileges due to misuse by soliciting (forbidden in the TOS) another site through numerous PMs. Rest assured, it's perfectly acceptable to mention other sites as part of sharing gardening knowledge or help with a specific topic. But, a mass solicitation through PMs is not acceptable.

PMs are very useful for side-bar conversations and sharing information that the rest of the members do not need to know or see. They are completely private. No one can see PMs except the parties involved. However, an inappropriate PM can be reported to the Administrator or Moderators for appropriate action, be it a friendly reminder, warning or revocation.

We also were hit with a barrage of phony business members, which is taking time to delete from our real membership.  Malicious activity like this needs to be reported so the Admin staff can take corrective action.  Thank you for reporting this matter.
