Forum rules

1. No intentional personal attacks*, rudeness, or personal provocation.

2. No profanity, pornography or spam (restrict unsolicited self-promotional content to the Classifieds section).

3. Only one account per person.

4. Respect designated topic areas (categories and threads) and moderator requests.

5. Use basic grammar and punctuation.

6. Excessive off-topic or pointless posts are not allowed.

7. Topics concerning politics and religion are discouraged.

8. Avoid quoting entire posts if they are long and/or contain many images.

9. Threats of suicide and/or self-harm are not allowed and will be removed.

*against others or oneself.

A breach of rules 1-3 will result in an immediate ban depending on the particulars. Breach of rules 4-8 will result in a warning or a ban depending on the particulars.

If you read a post that you feel breaks one of the above rules, please report it to the moderators using the report button, do not attempt to moderate it yourself. Alternatively, just PM one of the moderators. Moderators reserve the right to move, edit, or delete posts deemed inappropriate following a breach of forum rules, without warning or notification.


The rest of the Registration Agreement members agree to when joining this forum.

You will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also 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.

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 except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.


Forum PM statement/rules (introduced 9th April 2018)

Only forum rules 1-3 apply to PMs. This means the PM system can be used for private off topic discussion. PMs that break forum rules 1-3, if flagged to the moderators, will be acted on accordingly.

PMs belong to the sender and recipient. The Dinosaur Toy Forum therefore holds no responsibility for private messages subsequently shared publicly on the forum, or elsewhere. Members use the forum's private message (PM) system at their own risk.


Thank you for your cooperation.
