8) Actions for General Abuse and Violations

 

All members who use sureYnot.com should be aware of our Terms and Conditions. These are the benchmark by which we determine if any action must be taken against a member who violates the clear rules of conduct. If and when that happens, these steps will be followed.


1) Notice:

When a new member violates the terms and conditions for the first known time, generaly an initial system email notice will be given. This notice will be from a staff member and the word "NOTICE" will appear in the subject line. However, please be aware that this step may be bypassed for either repeat offenders, serious violations, or longer term members.

 

2) Warnings:

Staff has the ability to warn members. Each warning carries a temporary suspension and lasts 72 hours. If a member receives more than 5 warnings, their account may be terminated.

 

3) Site Ban:


If the above two steps have not resulted in improved participation on sureYnot.com, a final step of site ban and account termination will be imposed. Members who are banned in this way cannot access sureYnot.com. The member's IP address will be banned from the server and their account terminated by removal of their email/password from the database. Please be aware that exceptionally serious offenders and, those we determine are returning previously banned members, may receive this action as our first response.


These steps will always be followed by sureYnot.com's staff. However, because often times members are unaware of the "behind the scenes activities," it may not appear as though this is the case. But now that we have posted our sequence of disciplinary events, this should clear things up considerably.

 

9) Right of Community Management

This is a privately owned video and audio sharing community. sureYnot.com's administrators and senior moderator staff reserve the right to take action against any member who is deemed to be devoted purely to disruption, whose actions represent behavior contrary to community building, or whose content is contrary to the core ideals, categories or topics related to sureYnot.com. This action may include complete banning of your username and IP address. sureYnot.com reserves the right to eliminate or edit any content deemed inappropriate for the site. sureYnot.com reserves the right to establish limits on topics that may be posted if, in their opinion, the discussion of those topics attract an audience that is counterproductive to maintaining the ideals set forth in these Terms and Conditions of Use.
