Our DJ Talk Terms of Service
The follwoing rules can be summed up in 3 simple rules:
- Be respectful of your fellow members.
- Report any problems.
- Don't spam.
If you can handle these 3 things you will be fine here at ODJT.
Posting to the Forums:
By registering at Our DJ Talk and participating in discussions you agree to the following code of conduct. If you are unable to agree you have the right not to participate in forum discussions at any time.
This is YOUR community. Most people have a common sense feel for what is and what is not appropriate in our forums and you folks generally do a great job of policing yourselves. We do, however, need to have a few set policies for everyone to refer to when the need arises.
While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible where acceptable, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or web-master (except for posts by these people) and they will not be held liable.
You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated material or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing any of these may lead to you being temporarily or permanently banned from these forums.
If you were to continue to break this code of conduct your account would be reviewed and possibly removed. It is the sole discretion of the Our DJ Talk's moderators to remove violating accounts.
The IP addresses of all posts are recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrators, and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any post, topic or thread at any time they see fit following the guidelines outlined below. You agree that the webmaster, administrators and moderators of this forum have the right to send a private message with a warning and/or censor any forum user who is in violation of forum policy.
Be respectful of all users at all times
. This means please use etiquette and politeness. Treat people with kindness and respect. If you do this the rest of the code of conduct won't need more than a cursory mention.
Respect the forum staff.
We provide a service in our free time to keep the forums running efficiently. We will occasionally ask for input, but in some cases we will not, please respect our decisions. Also, we do edit for content, if you have an issue with our moderation, please private message a member of staff.
Remember that the forums are used by people of all age groups and of all tolerance levels regarding profanity usage. A language filter is in place to catch any profanities that you may have accidentally used. Do not attempt to circumvent the language filter by using variations or slight misspellings of profanities.
Forum Threads and Flaming:
Flaming and condescending messages:
Flames are messages that personally attack, call people names, or otherwise harass another forum member (or any person). These, along with any generally condescending posts will be moved or removed at the moderators discretion.
If the thread is flame-bait, appears to be intended to start an argument or is likely to cause an argument rather than enhance discussion, it will be locked and/or removed without notice. Individual flame-bait may be deleted or edited at the moderators' discretion. Any users who continue to post in this manner or engage in other questionable practices, like trolling (posting in an attempt to engage people in arguments) may be subject to more serious sanctions.
If the thread turns into an argument, it can be locked and/or removed without notice. Sometimes a moderator may split the thread or delete certain portions in order to keep the discussion going, but that is not always possible.
If a post or thread contains spam (unsolicited advertising) it will be removed and the poster will be banned. Active users in good standing are allowed to have links to personal or business sites in their signatures, in their profile, and may post them in threads on occasion as long as the content of those links does not include abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated material or any other material that may violate any applicable laws.
Adult Content/Violence/Illegal Activity:
Messages containing sexually oriented/violent/illegal dialogue, images, content, or links to these things will be deleted. Messages with links to or suggesting illegal activity will also be deleted. Posting or linking to any of these could result in a ban.
Please remember that these forums are inclusive of ALL people, and we strive to maintain accessibility to everyone.
All members are welcome to place links and images in their signatures. We ask that companies whose target consumers are Disc Jockies, only place a text link to their services or products out of respect for our sponsors. The only exception being industry events or trade shows whose coordinators are free to run a promotional graphic in the their signatures.
Individuals or companies who do not have an advertising contract with OurDJTalk.com may not solicit business from Our DJ Talk members.
"The Pub" is a section of the forum for all off topic discussion. Please keep it semi-clean, polite and professional. The subject matter in this area has a little more leeway, but the forums code of conduct still applies and will be enforced. Please see the note in this forum section for additional rules and comments.
