We do ask for cooperation from other Bronzers to report to us any violation
of these terms. When these violations happen to contact us ASAP and directly
via email and not via posts on the board. We are the only one who can make the
determination if one of these rules have been violated and what remedy if any
will be taken.
We will not get involved or referee any inter-Bronzer disputes. We believe
the board's community is self policing enough to allow them their own latitude
on how to handle disputes. The community is free to agree to guidelines and
other rules for posting in order to promote fairness and to encourage active
participation and ease of communication, which includes the 4 post per hour rule
which is widely accepted.. We are not here to steer the direction of any
conversation nor are we here to endorse or enforce any of these rules and
guidelines that the community may agree to.
Users are allowed to post under multiple screen names, even at the same time,
if they desire. This board supports and allows anonymous posting. We do
however provide all posters IP address so that readers may identify these
multiple identity posts. Additionally regardless of the number of screen names
used that poster is subject to the posting time limits described above. Posting
under multiple screen names is not a direct violation of our rules unless it can
be shown they have
- Stolen another posters established identity
- Registered another users identity in bad faith in order to prevent that victim
from using their desired identity
- Knowingly posting as another identity, especially as a member of the
cast or crew of the shows
in order to confuse other Bronzers.
We do however reserve the right to step in if and when any conversation,
threads, or posts are directly affecting the majority of users enjoyment of the
board and availability of the board even if the postings are within the
guidelines provided above.
Finally, we reserve the right to change or modify these regulations from time
If at any time you no longer agree to these terms, you must stop submitting or
reading posts from this site and its related pages.
