Please do not post links to the swear word you are trying to use to bypass the consequences. Exilian staff reserves the right to edit any post that contains too many swear words or is offensive to other cultures or religions, messages with strong pornographic content will also be edited, a warning may be issued followed by a ban.

Invisionfree requires that this forum be kept at a PG-13 level, that is, nothing unsuitable for the eyes of a 13 year old may be posted here. Posting of pornographic text, images, video, and sounds will be edited out of the post and will result in a warning followed by a ban if repeated. Posting links to porn sites or images with the following in them are also against the rules:

We really want to keep the forums a nice place to meet and speak together, please don’t ruin it with porn.
Violent and Shocking Images
Posting pictures with excessive gore, blood or violence will be edited out. Likewise posting pictures of shocking events such as suicides will be edited out. A short list of what is not allowed: excessive blood and gore, dismemberment, violent deaths, etc… You may not link to such images either. If a member posts images repeatedly he will be warned or banned.
You may not use the forums to conduct, direct, plan, or encourage illegal activities as determined by the laws of the United States of America and the laws of Great Britain. Doing so will result in an IP ban and the authorities may be contacted.
The official language spoken at Exilian is English (both USA and GB), please refrain from posting in any other language for a prolonged duration (ie: you may use other languages in small amounts). If you have trouble understanding a post you may contact a member of the Staff.
You must have a valid and working e-mail address registered at Exilian at all times in the event of a warning or other message. Exilian will never give out your e-mail address to other people without your consent. If a message sent to your account bounces you will be banned and will have to contact a moderator to be unbanned, your e-mail address will then be verified before you are unbanned.
You may not avoid a ban by creating a new account, doing so will lengthen your ban time, if you think you do not deserve your ban, contact a staff member and they will decide whether you may be unbanned earlier (as a group). Publicly complaining about your ban will also result in a lengthened ban time. You may not get another member to post on the behalf of a banned member; the poster may also receive a ban.
Exilian is a non-commercial site staffed by volunteers. We cannot ensure that this ToS is completely respected: some of our staff members may be under the age to be bound by legal contracts; furthermore, we don’t have any lawyers so we can’t be sure that we will be able to enforce our Terms of Service. We will not intentionally violate our ToS but this must not be viewed as a binding contract but as strong advice, we can’t be held responsible for violations of this policy.
