Postby admin » Tue Jan 30, 2007 3:51 pm

Our forums are designed for travellers to meet, greet and help each other before, during and after their travels. These "Terms of Use" outline the responsibilities of community members.

1. Forum and Private Messaging Rules
  • Choose the appropriate category for your post.
  • Be respectful of others. This applies to everyone, regardless of forum rank. Flaming, trolling or any other form of abuse will not be tolerated.
  • Please refrain from becoming a 'back seat moderator'. If you see a problem contravening a forum rule please bring it to the attention of a Moderator.
  • Respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of inline () image tags pointing to data stored on third party systems for which the user has not received permission to link to may be removed.
  • Administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time.
  • Posts containing, or linking to, any of the following will be removed and the account holder warned (or banned):
    • profanity, pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc.
    • content which contains a statement that makes a false claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may harm the reputation of G.A.P Adventures.
    • any copywritten material for which they do not have permission to share.
    • threats to other members or anyone in general.
    • providing advice or posting messages which can be construed to be illegal or promote breaking laws.

    • Messages containing unauthorized, personal information about other forum users and/or G.A.P Adventures staff.
2. Post-Trip Feedback
