Terms and Rules - ACT Bus Forum

We approve accounts manually, so please bear with us. You can get in touch via our Facebook page (search ACT Bus) if you'd like to hurry us along.

By becoming a member of the forums, you undertake to adhere to the rules as specified here. We reserve the right to make modifications to these rules at any time.

Messages posted to our forums are the responsibility of the members who post them. ACT Bus takes no responsibility for the validity or accuracy of comments made. It should not be assumed that the opinions expressed by any member reflect the opinions of ACT Bus. Nevertheless, ACT Bus does actively monitor and moderate its forums with the sole intention of promoting an environment that is conducive to intelligent debate, discussion and analysis.

You agree, through your participation at ACT Bus, that you will not use this site to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.

ACT Bus does not tolerate harassment of fellow members. We will, wherever possible, discourage harassment of members, but under no circumstances will ACT Bus be held responsible for such behaviour.

While ACT Bus endeavours to be a family friendly site, we recommend that all members and visitors to our forums under the age of 18 are supervised by an adult. While we will not knowingly endanger any minor, or allow them to endanger themselves through this site, ACT Bus cannot be responsible for communications entered into between members through the forum's personal message (PM) system or off-site.

Members are limited to one account each. Secondary or additional accounts may be removed or merged.

Name calling or any other form of personal abuse, including attempts to provoke another member to react in such a way, will not be tolerated. This conduct is prohibited not only in the public forums, but also through the PM system. If such behaviour persists, disciplinary action against individual members will be considered, which may result in posting privileges being limited or suspended.

ACT Bus does not seek to censor any posters' opinions. Nevertheless, we will not tolerate inappropriate ways of expressing such opinions. Specifically, rude, uncivil and offensive posts may be edited or removed at the discretion of moderators.

From time to time, moderators will make decisions not covered by the above rules. Any member can have their posts put into a moderation queue, be suspended or have posting privileges withdrawn at any time, if the management team decides such restrictions are warranted.

Unless otherwise permitted, such as through open discussions initiated by moderators, any grievances with specific decisions of the moderating team should not be aired publicly, but instead be submitted privately, via either PM or e-mail. Decisions taken by moderators are final, and any instructions that are given to members are to be complied with.

Any member who contributes, supports or promotes in any way personal attacks on ACT Bus staff and members, whether those attacks be internal or external, will have their account terminated.

Videos and images embedded in posts should be hosted by the user with their own webspace, or on a public site such as YouTube, Photobucket, or Flickr. ACT Bus does not allow users to 'hotlink' files from other websites without prior permission of the owner; such items will be altered or removed from posts.
