Forum Participation rules
Members (includes standard members and subscribers)
-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 these rules.
-Posting under multiple usernames will typically be outed to the community and result in possible ban.
-PHOTRIO Ltd does not tolerate personal attacks and will delete such posts and ban users if necessary.
-If a staff member contacts you asking for changes in your posting
style or habits, please abide by them or face removal from the system.
-If you vehemently disagree with a moderators decision contact us
offline -DO NOT TAKE IT OUT ON THE MODERATOR. Do not post a thread to
discuss your disagreement, and do not send hostile messages to staff.
We are very protective of our staff and will swiftly remove accounts
that show hostility towards them.
-Cursing/swearing is tolerated but not encouraged. Excessive swearing or swearing in topic titles could result in being banned.
-You may not start fights or induce fights in the forums. Use private
means to resolve a dispute. Open flaming will result in removed posts,
possible warnings and/or bans.
-Do not cross post a message in the forums (posting the same thread in
multiple forums for more help/attention). Pick a forum, post the
message, and let it be.
-no general politics (if the thread involves photography it may be
allowed until it becomes unproductive, then it will be moved to a "Soap
-no religious/political discussions or statements in the general forums (this includes forum signatures)
-no digital vs. traditional threads
-Spamming is not tolerated. If it becomes blatant that your signature
and user account are often or predominantly involved with self
promoting your products you may be warned or banned. Active members who
contribute to the community are allowed signature links to their
business or websites and an ocassional (we stress OCASSIONAL) plug of
their work, typically 1 or 2 times per year depending on how much they
-When are links to external sites permitted? If you are linking to off
site content which YOU OWN OR ARE AFFILIATED WITH it must be a direct
link to the content and not a blanket link to your content. For example
a link to your article should be www.mysite.com/article1.html NOT
www.mysite.com *Be warned using PHOTRIO websites as a vehicle to post
links to your external sources can be regarded by management and forum
users as a form of spamming and elicit an extremely negative response
from the community. The *occasional direct* link to your own content is
acceptable but if it is all you tend to do when using our services
we'll have to evaluate your membership.
-If you are engaged in a constructive argument, make sure your posts
are clear and that you aren't inadvertently starting a flame war.
-In some extreme cases we may place you on a "watchlist", which means
you can post messages but we must approve them first. If you post and
it does not appear it is likely your posts are being monitored first.
Do not try to argue a case against being placed on the watchlist, or
how long you will be on the watchlist. Post approvals for watchlist
users happen several times a day, please do not ask when your post will
be approved. We will not waste time explaining why certain posts will
not be approved.
-Multiple accounts are not allowed and may be merged to your old
account, deleted or placed in a hidden state by the forum software(you
may or may not be notified of these actions).
-Use common sense when posting.
-Questions regarding digital techniques or digital techniques connected
with traditional processes should be posted in the digital or hybrid
areas only, not the analog areas
-Do not publicly post any personal details of individuals who have not
explicitly given their blessing for you to do so (for example
addresses, email addresses, phone numbers). Such information will be
removed as it will be indexed across the internet possibly against
their will. Private off line exchange of such information is fine.
Linking to contact information which they have posted is also another
method that is acceptable.
-Refrain from discussing members who were banned. Such discussion is
unfair when the person in question can not post to defend themselves or
*Our sites run custom software to auto-identify problem user accounts.
For example if your account continues to constantly be reported by a
variety of established members and a variety of our membership has
chosen to ignore your account, then your activity may automatically
become invisible. You may not be aware this has even happened. If you
discover your account has been made invisible you can contact us
privately to discuss. The threshold for this is extremely high
and is a strong indication your account has been far too disruptive to
continue operating on the site.
-Poaching is basically when an active member(s) of our websites
(typically disgruntled member(s) or participant(s) of competing
websites trying to gain new members) use clandestine methods of
contacting our membership on a mass scale, trying to convince them to
"try out" or "have a look" at a different website, the idea being to
either poach members away from our services to the site of their
preference or poaching to build numbers on external websites. If we are
made aware that certain individuals are engaged in using our systems
for poaching, it would be grounds for banning the poachers account.
This is absolutely a form of spam and we are adding this policy to our
additional spam policies throughout our system. If you've been
contacted by someone that is engaging in this type of spamming, please
let us know (your anonymity will be guaranteed.)
Sponsors (Advertisers and their affiliates)
Due to the growth of the system and the amount of sponsors we require
that sponsors and their affiliates are to stay out of discussion
regarding other sponsors threads or other sponsors products. This for
example prevents sponsor A from posting something such as "We have a
new camera bag out that is far superior to sponsor B's bags", or maybe
the guy who designed the bag for sponsor A, posting claims that sponsor
B and C have poorly made bags, etc. When this sort of thing is allowed,
it can only end in forum wars between sponsors. Is this censorship? To
some degree yes, the sponsors are being asked to stay in their
respective corners. It is sad that such a policy is needed but we
refuse to end up with forums full of these types of wars. Typically
sponsors do this on their own anyway, however from time to time we have
some sponsors or those involved with them, banging heads until there is
an all out escalation that sours the forums.
2) User Tools. PHOTRIO LIMITED and its affiliates reserve the right to
terminate your access without refund to any or all of the User Tools at
any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.
3) Monitoring. PHOTRIO LIMITED and its affiliates have no obligation to
pre-screen or monitor the User Tools or the content Posted on or

communications, in whole or in part, in PHOTRIO LIMITED 's or any of
its affiliates' sole discretion and to disclose any information or take
any action as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation,
legal process or governmental request.
4) Usage. Content or communications posted using the User Tools are
generally public, not private, communications and others may read your
communications without your knowledge or consent. You should not have
any expectation of privacy relative to your communications through the
User Tools. Always use caution when posting personal information
especially when posting information that could personally identify you.

own risk. PHOTRIO LIMITED is not responsible for its theft, copying or
placement of that User Content on other media or networks. PHOTRIO

LIMITED certain rights as described in Section 4A below.

issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon our demand.
Your card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated card in
connection with the Premium Service, and you must refer to that
agreement and not the TOS to determine your rights and liabilities as a
cardholder. YOU, AND NOT PHOTRIO LIMITED, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING
ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY EVEN IF THEY
WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
PHOTRIO LIMITED RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT ANY TIME, TO CHANGE ITS FEES AND
BILLING METHODS, INCLUDING THE ADDITION OF SUPPLEMENTAL FEES OR
SEPARATE CHARGES FOR CONTENT, OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY PHOTRIO LIMITED,
EFFECTIVE THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER AN ONLINE POSTING AT PHOTRIO LIMITED.
PHOTRIO LIMITED MAY ADDITIONALLY PROVIDE NOTICE OF BILLING CHANGES VIA
EMAIL. If any such change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your
Subscription Service by contacting us. However, canceling will not
immediately terminate access to your Premium Service account and
PHOTRIO LIMITED will not refund the remaining portion of your
subscription. The subscription will remain open until the paid period
expires. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE PREMIUM SERVICE FOLLOWING THE
EFFECTIVE DATE OF A CHANGE TO SUCH FEES AND BILLING METHODS SHALL
CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGE. PHOTRIO LIMITED IS NOT
RESPONSIBLE FOR FAILURE TO CANCEL YOUR SUBCRIPTION EITHER IN WRITING BY
EMAIL, FAX, OR LETTER ON OR THROUGH THE WEB SITE. YOU AGREE AND
ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PHOTRIO LIMITED SHALL NOT BE REPONSIBLE FOR ANY
ADJUSTMENTS, REFUNDS OR ACCOUNT OVERSIGHTS THAT YOU HAVE NOT SUBMITTED
TO PHOTRIO LIMITED WITHIN 60 DAYS OF SUCH OCCURANCE OR LACK THEREOF.
There shall be no refunds, except in demonstrated cases of credit card
fraud (as determined by PHOTRIO LIMITED at its sole discretion) or
under the terms agreed to when purchasing a product or service as
agreed to during the payment process. You understand and agree that as
a result of processing a refund PHOTRIO LIMITED incurs certain
administrative costs, and may request you to cover these costs.
3. Termination of Your Subscription. You acknowledge that PHOTRIO
LIMITED, in its sole discretion, may terminate your ID, password,
account (or any part thereof) or use of the Premium Service for a
variety of reasons, including, without limitation, if PHOTRIO LIMITED
believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter
or spirit of the TOS or any other agreement referred to in the TOS.
PHOTRIO LIMITED may also, in its sole discretion, at any time
discontinue providing the Premium Service, or any part thereof, with or
without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the
Premium Service under any provision of the TOS may be effected without
prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that PHOTRIO LIMITED may
immediately deactivate or delete your account and/or bar any further
access to the Premium Service. If your account is terminated by PHOTRIO
LIMITED, it will not be automatically renewed and access will be
terminated, without refund. Further, you agree that PHOTRIO LIMITED
shall not be liable to you or any third-party for termination of your
access to the Premium Service. YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PHOTRIO
LIMITED SHALL NOT REPONSIBLE FOR ANY ADJUSTMENTS, REFUNDS OR ACCOUNT
OVERSIGHTS PAST THE 60th DAY OF SUCH OCCURANCE OR LACK THEREOF.
4. Subscriber Information. You agree to provide and maintain true,
accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted
by the Premium Service registration process. You must promptly inform
PHOTRIO LIMITED of any of the following: changes in the expiration date
of any credit card used in connection with the Premium Service; changes
in home or billing address; and apparent breaches of security, such as
loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of an ID or password.
You agree to notify PHOTRIO LIMITED immediately upon learning of any
potential breach of your Premium Service account.
5. Use Restriction. The material on the Services is for the private,
non-commercial enjoyment of Subscribers only. Any other use is strictly

obtain the information appearing on our sites. You agree that you will
not copy, publish, or in any way make available publicly any news,
pictures, interviews, features, or any other information, content or
materials from the Services, without express written permission from
PHOTRIO LIMITED. You agree that if you do so, PHOTRIO LIMITED reserves
the right to cancel your subscription immediately without refund.
