By visiting this site you agree to these Terms & Conditions. You are responsible for knowing, following and keeping up to date with these terms as part of your agreement to use this site.
Your safety and security is of paramount importance to us. With so many people using this site every day. We take any hint of a disruption very seriously. We have a zero tolerance for any one or anything that appears to be a threat to the site, its members or breaks the law. Encyclotronic staff can and will, at its sole discretion review, edit or delete any activity on the site that it feels may infringe on these terms, the safety or stability of the site in any way.
Keep Things Friendly and Nice
All members of the Encyclotronic site are expected to conduct themselves responsibly in a mature and respectful manner, and comply with the board guidelines as outlined here. Depending on the severity of the violation, failure to comply with these guidelines will result in the issuing of a warning and/or banning by a member of the Encyclotronic staff. For this reason, Encyclotronic strictly adheres to a portion of the "PG" content guideline. The PG rating portion is defined as follows:
There may be some profanity and some depictions of violence or brief nudity. But these elements are not deemed so intense as to require that parents be strongly cautioned beyond the suggestion of parental guidance.
As a 13+ age site and you are expected to act like a grown up. Problem members will not be tolerated. Forum policies are not open to your personal interpretation. Just because there is no exact statement that defines what is proper behavior, or not. You may be warned or removed from the community if the staff feels you are behaving in a manor that it finds unacceptable. This is includes but is not limited to:
No personal attacks, disrespectful, derogatory, threatening, profane, insulting or negative comments or images, directed toward any race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, or other group(s), whether direct or indirect, are permitted.
No harassment and/or spamming, either via post, private message, avatar, signature, or via any member contact information listed on Encyclotronic, of any other member(s) is permitted for any reason.
No Trolling, as we strive to ensure that the Encyclotronic site is a positive place for all posters. Do not troll (i.e., posting inflammatory statements and/or images for the sole purpose of inciting an emotional response) either via post, private message, avatar, signature or via any member contact information listed on Encyclotronic.
No explicit images or videos containing adult content (e.g., photographs / illustrations of nudity, gore, graphic violence) should be displayed either via post, unsolicited private message, avatar, chat, gallery, display name, signature or anywhere else on the site visible or not.
No stalking or feuding allowed. Keep all personal conflicts off the board. This includes any disputes with personal relationships, social networks, other sites, rivals, celebrity, professional, or other persons.
Privacy, Piracy and Copyright Infringement
Discussion of piracy and or peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs is strongly discouraged, and is not allowed as a primary topic of discussion within the Encyclotronic site. If the topic does arise within an existing thread, it will be permitted as long as no links, direct or indirect, to any such software are posted.
No posting of scanned or copyrighted material is permitted. This includes any material that is currently in print, or which is readily available to purchase at retail. The sole exception to this rule is any scan made and posted by Encyclotronic staff. Only scans by Encyclotronic staff will be allowed, unless they are posted or officially released by the publisher / copyright holder.
DO NOT post ANY *Private* Message(s), IM conversation(s), email(s), or any other such person-to-person info to the public. Posting any of these is an invasion of privacy. Nobody wants their personal information, of any kind, posted in full view of the public. If it originated in any of these venues, it was not meant to be posted publicly and therefore should remain private. Please remember this, as any such posting(s) will be taken very seriously by the Administrators and Moderators of this message board.
Be Nice To The Site
Do not steal bandwidth. There are many free services available to you to host your images. Please respect others and use your own web space to post images.
When posting in topics please keep all posts related to the topic at hand. A warning message will be posted by a Moderator or Administrator if a thread is getting off topic and will request that a new thread be created to discuss this new topic. A Moderator or Administrator may "split" the thread if necessary in order to keep the original thread on topic and to create a new thread for the new topic.
Tampering, hacking or manipulating the site in ANY way is seen as a threat to the stability of the site. Anyone caught spoofing, disarming, circumventing or using any other means to disable a filter, permission, code or other device meant to remove control from something on the forums will be banned instantly.
Classifieds Terms & Conditions
Everyone loves the Classifieds forum for buying, selling, trading, and discussing auctions. It's a good place to hook up with fellow Encyclotronic members and we want to keep it that way without upsetting our fellow members . We have defined a set of Terms & Conditions for posting in the Classifieds forums that are to be followed by all members who post in these sections on Encyclotronic. Please read these BEFORE you post anything.
We highly recommend checking the Feedback Forum for references before you pay for anything. It is also recommend that you consider an escrow deal and/or use Pay Pal to make your payment as these services can offer some modest level of protection against total fraud.
No buying, selling or trading topics should be posted anywhere but the Classifieds.
Members should not have to read between the ads. Under no circumstances will selling posts be allowed in other areas of the site. Classifieds posts found outside of the Classifieds section, will be moved there by the moderators. Repeat offenders may be warned.

Where necessary we will work with the law to handle criminal, illegal or fraudulent activities.
