Greetings! The below is a custom-written user agreement that you should read before joining our community.
Once you agree to the below and have all required fields filled in, you can submit your application. You may find yourself waiting a few minutes, or even a day or two while an administrator personally reviews your application. We mostly turn away bots, spam and people who can't be bothered to fill in even a couple of sentences about themselves - there's no need to worry, the questions are just there so we can see that you've demonstrated you're at least somewhat human and are here for the same things as everyone else: an affinity for dragons!
"Affinity" may be something spiritual or supernatural, or simply a love or fascination. A "Dragon" may be the soul, mythical folklore dragons, a creature of any kind, or whatever your imagination brings up! So technically, this site is for anyone who has some form of relationship to whatever they can apply the word "dragon" to. Even if you can't, you're still welcome here with an open mind :)
This is NOT a roleplay site. RP is not permitted in this community and any threads that are made will be removed immediately, regardless of which board they are in.
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 person including administrators, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. Only one account per person is permitted. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.
Do not abuse the technology on this server (website or otherwise). This includes, but is not limited to: spamming, flooding, phishing, data mining, malicious intent, or hacking attempts. This will result in a permanent ban, and quite likely your ISP being contacted and certified logs given to authorities.
Do not post illegal material. This includes, but is not limited to, certain types of porn, all types of porn where minors have access, warez, and copyright material. NOTE: copyright material also means what you use in your avatar - so be careful there! With the legalities in mind, the owners of this forum reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.
Any member who proves themselves to be detrimental to the community health will be given an initial warning. Further warnings and additional action will be taken on a case-by-case basis by the administration. If the problem persists a subsequent ban will be implemented. The length of the ban will be determined by the severity of the problem(s).
You are solely responsible for the content of your contributions - our moderation is loose and as such we are not responsible for what other users post on the site. If something is against the law then it will be removed. However, if something is legal but you find it offensive, we do not have rules in place to remove such material. The site is constantly changing though and we listen to our users, if everyone on the site wanted something to happen then it more than likely will - as has been the case in the past.
You are also responsible for what areas of the site you access. If you enter a section with heated content and then get your feelings hurt, it is not the responsibility of the forum staff to "Mother" you - use your common sense. Participation in any topic is completely voluntary. However, we will not tolerate cyber-bullying and will act accordingly with the laws currently in place if any such activity occurs - this includes, but is not limited to, threats of any kind, harassment outside of voluntary conversation and targeting specific members outside of context.
The administration will do their best to ensure your privacy, and protect your identity. Emails and IPs are only visible to administrators, and passwords are MD5-encrypted. OpenID is a registration option. Most content is accessible only to members, and we act to prevent data mining. If you choose for us to remove your account, your posts will be maintained but your username, and the rest of your profile, will be blanked out.
