Default General Community Guidelines

Welcome to MouseOwners, the most fun, honest, adult, and realistic DVC-designated community on the 'net. We may not always be right, but we're sure to say what we're thinking in forthright (and occasionally snarky) ways. If that sounds like your kind of mouse trap, then you're going to have a great time!

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this message board to post any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, libelous, threatening, or an invasion of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law.

Despite the fact that we're full o' snark, we believe that MouseOwners is not the appropriate venue for criticizing other web sites. We respect the fact that many of our forum members also visit other Disney discussion forums, and we don't want any members to feel uncomfortable in their visits here due to attacks or criticisms of other discussion forums. We don't want MouseOwners to be a place to bash other Disney discussion forums or their moderators.

The rules here tend to be simple: don't be stupid; don't overstep your bounds; don't be a pain. Oh, and listen to the administrators and moderators. What they say, goes -- whether you agree with them or not.

We encourage everyone to communicate in a friendly and respectful manner. It's OK to share your opinions and to disagree; we simply ask that you do so without attacking another member in the process.

If you feel you have been personally and unreasonably attacked, don't respond with an attack of your own; instead, notify the Moderators / Administrators to alert us of the problem.

Contact us immediately if you find that a posted message is objectionable. You may notify the moderators by clicking on the exclamation mark at the bottom left of any objectionable post. We can remove objectionable messages and will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

We have a history of moderating with a fairly light hand, and strive to guide people into a more positive experience of the board. A basic operating assumption is that people will act like adults if they are treated like adults.

Please note, moreover, that MouseOwners.com is an adult-based site. Occasional use of light profanity quite likely will occur: we have strong senses of humor here. Consequently, MO is not a forum for children. It is not a "family site."

Remember: You agree to abide by the wishes of the board administrators and moderators in interpreting and enforcing these rules. Refusal to cooperate with board moderators or to abide by these rules is grounds for revocation of your posting privileges.

Vandalism of the site through inappropriate use of HTML or other code is grounds for immediate banning. Vandals (and other egregious policy violators) will be reported to their ISPs (Internet service providers). Extreme cases may be referred to the police.

This message board allows us to selectively ban individual users, and to delete all postings by a particular screen name in a single operation.

Please remember that you are our guest here, and that we must reserve the right to exclude you at our whim, for any or no reason whatsoever. By registering and using the board you acknowledge this right and agree to abide by our rules and to submit to their interpretation and enforcement by our moderators and editors.

Considering the real-time nature of message boards and the number of messages posted, it is impossible for us to verify the information posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. Please be particularly wary of medical, legal or other professional advice posted on the message boards and recognize that it is no substitute for in-person consultation with a competent professional. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of MouseOwners, its moderators, its administrators, the site owners, or any entity associated with it.

Only one screen name is permitted per user. If you wish, for some extraordinary reason, to change screen names, please notify the webmaster. Use of multiple screen names is grounds for revocation of your right to post under ANY screen name.

We reserve the right to refuse postings from screen names we find objectionable, including URLs used as screen names. We reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You are solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless MouseOwners (the operator of this message board) and its agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

MouseOwners also reserves the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are not permitted on this message board and will be deleted. We will notify the Internet service provider of any party posting objectionable messages.

By posting on this board you grant MouseOwners a nonexclusive irrevocable right to reuse your posting in any manner it sees fit without notice or compensation to you.
