    Thinking of starting forum
    I run the internet radio station at my school and am thinking of creating a forum for school radio station (at other schools, not just mine) personalities and managers. Here's my draft TOS. Let me know what you think. (I know it's a little long, but please bare with me).

    Terms of Service

    Your AgreementY
    By completing registration, you agree to the following terms. These terms of service may be changed without advance notice. All revisions go in effect as soon as they are posted. It is your responsibility to check these terms of service frequently.

    Legal Action Against The Forum

    By completing your registration, you agree that you will not hold the owners of this forum responsible, or take any legal action against them, in the event that your account is hacked, taken over, or otherwise modified without your permission. Please also note that you may choose whether or not to receive email from administrators, and whether or not to allow your email to be viewable publicly. You agree not to take legal action against the owners of this forum if you receive sudden spam (from spammers) or unwanted email from the administrators of this forum.

    This is a SAFE place
    This forum is meant to be a safe environment for all users. Therefore, none of the following are allowed on the forums:

    - Flaming
    - Racism
    - Swearing (including masked words such as "h***")
    - Discrimination of any kind.

    Any of the above can warrant a ban, suspension, or deletion of your account by the moderators and administrators. Any threads containing any of the above may be locked or removed at the descretion of the moderators and administrators.

    Spam Policy
    Although the moderators and administrators do their best to find and remove spam posts, please report spam if you see it. Spammers are banned on sight. Spam threads will be locked and/or removed on sight.

    We abide by US Law
    Any content about any activity, act, object, software, or device that is illegal in the United States is not allowed on this forum. Threads discussing any of the above will be locked and/or deleted at the sole discretion of the moderators and administrators.

Please do not post any personal information that you do not want others to know.


    Content Restrictions/Edited Posts
    Please, post in English only! No pornography is allowed, as this forum is open to minors 13 and older. ANYONE who posts pornography will be banned on sight (even if only a link is posted). Keep things appropriate! Please note that the moderators and administrators reserve the right to edit or delete any post at any time for any reason and are not obligated to explain their reasons for doing so.

    Multiple Account Policy
    Multiple accounts, whether used for Spamming, Trolling, Sockpuppeting (deception among members) or plain fun are NOT allowed. Multiple accounts (accounts created after the original AND the original) are banned on sight.

    Legal Action Against The Forum

    Well, we're a public charter school and students are spread out across at least 2 counties. An FM signal just wouldn't have the range that we need, and in the longrun it's probably more expensive. Any feedback on the TOS?

    NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Nope, we definitely have a forum for web hosting

    You might also get some better feedback at our sister forum - WebHostingTalk.com

    I just didn't consider a TOS to be in the category of web hosting, but thanks

    Well, your topic deals with creating a forum - sure, the question is specifically about TOS, but it falls into one of the categories we have here.

    Okay thanks. Any feedback? Too long? Anything I didn't cover?
