1. Treat AF members and staff with respect. While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate purposeless inflammatory posts or personal attacks or negative comments regarding appearance/dress unless directly solicited.
2. All items sold in the AF mall must be authentic & in stock. Any counterfeited items listed will be removed and permanent ban of membership will be enforced. See AF mall for additional information. Additionally, note that all mall listings are approved at the sole discretion of the AF staff. Items that are deemed inappropriate for the site, or whose authenticity cannot be determined/assured, will at our discretion not be approved.
3. AF reserves the right to remove offensive posts without notice, and ban any user for any reason at the sole discretion of AF staff.
4. AF does not allow posts that are sexual in nature or violate AF community standards.
5. Discussion of or encouragement/promotion of illegal activities are not allowed.
Discussion or encouragement of dishonest practices, including but not limited to earning credits/referrals through inappropriate means, will not be permitted.
6. Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsense posts, repetitive posts (spamming/posting the same post in multiple areas or threads) or the like. Please do not post threads to continue discussing locked topics.
Please do not post threads asking for donations, asking people to vote for you in a contest, or any similar purposes without prior express permission of Idalis.
Please do not posted "wanted" ads. Please place wishlist items in your signature.
7. Threads or posts for the purpose of advertising of your own site/store/eBay sales or those of friends/family are not permitted. If you wish to purchase advertising on the site, please contact Idalis. The posting of links to your own auctions will be treated as advertising. Post only photos if you have questions about an item you are currently selling.
Links to your eBay items, store, mall items, etc, are permissable only in signatures, and under the discretion of AF staff.
"Personal gain" links are not permitted. These include affiliate account links, referral links or rep codes through which you receive some type of incentive for getting people to click or join a site, or discussion of any cashback incentive sites.
PM spam (unsolicited commercial PM's, sent to attempt to sell any product or advertise any site or service, which has not been invited) are strictly forbidden. You don't like spam in your email box and our members don't like it in their PM boxes either. Again, if you wish to purchase advertising, contact Idalis.
8. AF permits each user to have only 1 ID. We reserve the right to use IP address info to connect multiple ID's.
9. Your posts may be edited without notice, by administrators or moderators (inappropriate content removed and replaced with verbiage in brackets indicating that this was done). If your post has been edited and comments written by a moderator, you are not permitted to edit that person's comments. Edits are permitted on your own words only.
10. Signatures may be no more than 3 standard font lines high
11. Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. For example, instructions for particular topics may be given by AF staff within threads and are to be followed even if not explicitly outlined in a rule. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure the forum is not disrupted or abused in any way.
Thanks & enjoy www.AuthenticForum.com
