    First let's start with the standard Terms and Rules that comes with this forum software:
    • The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content"). Content submitted express the views of their author only.
    • You agree to not use the Service to submit or link to any Content which is defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, spam or spam-like, likely to offend, contains adult or objectionable content, contains personal information of others, risks copyright infringement, encourages unlawful activity, or otherwise violates any laws.
    • All Content you submit or upload may be reviewed by staff members. All Content you submit or upload may be sent to third-party verification services (including, but not limited to, spam prevention services). Do not submit any Content that you consider to be private or confidential.
    • We reserve the rights to remove or modify any Content submitted for any reason without explanation. Requests for Content to be removed or modified will be undertaken only at our discretion. We reserve the right to take action against any account with the Service at any time.
    • You are granting us with a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, unlimited license to use, publish, or re-publish your Content in connection with the Service. You retain copyright over the Content.
    • These terms may be changed at any time without notice.
    • If you do not agree with these terms, please do not register or use this Service. If you wish to close your account, please contact us.
    Secondly, please remember that our language of discussion is polite English. Profanity and vulgarity have no place here. Simulated or "pretend" profanity will be treated the same as actual profanities. If your post contains any occurrences of "expletive deleted", "pejorative removed", etc., it must be remedied immediately.

    We try not to have too many rules here, but there are a few:
    • You must limit quoted material to short snippets that qualify as "fair use" under copyright laws. Excess quoting will be edited or deleted. You can use the "fairuse" & "/fairuse" UBB codes to limit quotes to 100 words.
    • Photos from copyright sources cannot be uploaded to the site. We will delete most user-supplied images as quickly as we find them. Links to relevant images are acceptable.
    • Video from several sources (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook) can be embedded in your posts. The actual video files are not allowed to be uploaded here.
    • All material on this site is intended to be both work-safe and family-safe. Please ensure that all links lead only to materials that meet this expectation.
    • Spamming other sites (either your own or another's) is not allowed. TUG management -- and only TUG management -- will decide what other sites we promote.
    • You must be respectful of all other members at all times.
    At the bottom left corner of every post you will find a "Report" link. Please use this -- and only this -- to report issues with the post. The report will include the exact information we need to locate the post.
