    1. Introduction
    2. Legalities
    3. Staff Prerogative
    4. Account Precepts
    5. Forum Conduct
    6. Accountability
    7. License Agreement





    1. Introduction

    This thread will explain the Terms of Service we have here at Freestylersworld. Please make sure you read all of the information provided in this thread as it is your responsibility to understand our Terms of Service.


    2. Legalities

    No one from Masangsoft Inc or any parties associated officially with Masangsoft Inc or any such affiliated company or anyone directed by Masangsoft Inc and/or its related companies is permitted to navigate this website or view any content contained within this site at any time due to reasons concerning legalities.

    You agree, through the use of these forums, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law, as by the United States, or by any country hosting these forums federal and state-level laws. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material, claiming it as your own.


    3. Staff Prerogative

    We have the rights to remove any objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy goes for member profile information as well.

    You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless these forums, and any related websites to this forum. We also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any information posted by you.

    You will show respect to all of the staff members at all times, unless jokingly from both parties, or you shall face consequences as seen fit by the staff members.

    As owners of the servers and forums, we reserve the right to deny you service at any time, for whatever reason. We are providing you with our services, we are not required to inform you of why you are being denied services. You may appeal to our staff through use of email or other messaging services, but will not abuse the rule of creating alternate accounts to bypass denial of services. You will also not be refunded any money you chose to donate to us, for any reason.


    4. Account Precepts

    You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another member, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to never use another member's account to post messages or browse this forum. If these rules are broken, you risk the removal of your forum account.

    Creating or having multiple forum accounts (so called "alt" (alternative) accounts) is not allowed, such accounts will be banned instantly. After you register and log onto Freestyler's World, you can fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information we deem inaccurate or vulgar will be removed at the discretion of the forum moderator. We only allow people to have multiple forum accounts if they want to buy golden member on more forum accounts.

    Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from Freestylers World or your Internet Service Provider contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.


    5. Forum Conduct

    Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also entirely inappropriate, and are an offence that is punishable on these forums.

    You may not spam on any page of the forum, that includes but is not limited to threads, private messages and visitor messages.
    You will not provide false pictures/links/information in your signature/posts/threads.

    Please note that this is an English based site. We would like you to use English accurately and correctly, as it is hard for others to understand what you are saying if you cannot convey your message in a clear, and concise manner.

    We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information presented. The messages express the views of the author (poster), not necessarily the views of these forums. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify a forum moderator immediately.

    Note that it is impossible for us to confirm all of the validity of posts on these forums. Remember that although we try, we cannot completely monitor all posts, signatures, and messages; we are not responsible for their content but we will try our best to remove any that do not abide by the rules.

    You are solely responsible for any and all attachments that you post to this forum. You may not post files to this forum which contain copyrighted material that you do not have permission from the author to post. We also ask that you not post any links to sites that offer games other than what we currently offer. All rules here apply to Freestylers World, its Chatbox, Fgunz.net our Freestyle GunZ Facebook page and any other social network around it such as Tinychat (Not including Freestyle GunZ, separate Rules and Regulations can be found here).

    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready.
    I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
    There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
    And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is a good a time as any.

    When bringing this up with staff:

    Q: Why ban conversations about political beliefs?
    Political parties stand on opposite ends (in most cases) of every subject. This allows room for argument in an, "I'm right, you're wrong" setting. It is not needed on a gaming forum

    Q: Why ban conversations about religion?
    Religions contradict other religions no matter which way you look at it. It's a portal for argument and unfriendly debate, no matter how many times you make an infraction. When people believe in something, they tend to feel very strongly about it and resort to inappropriate measures to back it up.

    Q: Why ban conversations about homosexuality?
    Being a homosexual is something only a true homosexual would ever understand. Heterosexuals can not grasp the concept of homosexuality and, literally, simply think they know. Fact of the matter is, the just don't, no matter how many ways you look at it. Homosexuality is one of the biggest sparks of argument and debate in this community as it is, and members, as well as staff, are tired of hearing how we chose to be hated by most of America and around the world.

    Q: Why ban the topics completely and simply not allow them at a debate level?
    If you even think this in your head, you should be removed from staff. This community escalates everything in an attempt to settle for personal defense. Guilty is charged.

    New addition:


    "- Utilizing the name of another Forum member for any intent or purpose can be removed at any time as per request by the user, whether positive or negative. Any repeat attempts to re-make said signature with the names, or any attempt to do so in a sly manner, will be punishable by infraction, followed by harsh consequence should the incident prove problematic."

    If you choose to offend or use someone else' name in your signature, and those persons request their name and the signature removed, it shall be removed if deemed offensive by them or they simply do not wish to be in your signature.

    I am honored to make the first change to the terms of service in over a year.

    "The report functions available on this forum are to be used for, and only used for, actual complaints and issues with the community or the services it provides. Any report that contains falsified information, is used as a method to slander, harm or embarrass another user, or is written with intent outside of the previously specified reasoning can result in consequences left up to the Administration of this community. Consequences may include post deletion, infractions, muting, temporary ban, or permanent ban."

    Thank you.

    Made a change regarding the account sharing rule:

    You promise to NOT share your forum account with any member under ANY circumstances. Any violator's shall be hold in contempt, and after careful review, may lose access to said account. Punishments may vary from a ban to an infraction.

    We can see it if you share your forum account, don't do it. I will start checking the logs every now and then.
    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready.
    I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
    There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
    And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is a good a time as any.
