Important Information - ALL MUST READ!

Welcome to your Local Town Guide Community Forums at pointpleasantbeach.com! This is the place to come to share information, ask questions and help provide answers, get involved in discussions, and meet fine people as well. Point Pleasant Beach has a lot to offer and although this website is quite extensive, you may find these forums more informative and detailed.

The forums are set up to find what you looking for easily and quickly. From the Boardwalk and Beaches to the Downtown area, Fishing and Boating, Community Events, Real Estate and Rentals and more, you are sure to find a lot interesting things here.

Before you enter the Forums, it’s very important you read the terms and conditions of usage below. These are in place to ensure that your experience here will be worthwhile and the information provided will be valuable to you. By clicking the “Enter the Forums” button below and viewing and using the forums, you agree to abide by these terms.

Thank you for visiting, and enjoy the forums!

Terms and Conditions of Usage

SIGNING UP AND YOUR MEMBERSHIP

1. You certify that you are 13 years of age or over. All those individuals under 13 years of age will need a full release form from their parents before posting any messages. This is in compliance with the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act of 2000 (COPPA). Once you enter the forums, click the “Register” button on the top of any page, read the agreement and click “I Agree to these terms and am under 13 years of age”. Follow the instructions from there.

2. All forums may be viewed and read by the public, however you MUST register as a member in order to post to or reply to any posts. This is done for “crowd control” purposes and to prevent undesirable members from returning.

3. When you register, you will be asked to provide a username and password. Usernames that we feel are inflammatory, vulgar, promotional, or rude will be removed. Signing up a username that is a obvious domain name or product name or service/trademark name will be removed. This is out of unfair promotion considerations as well as trademark implications.

4. Registering with the intent of impersonating someone or misrepresenting yourself in your profile is illegal and against the law. Shore Advantage may contact authorities which can result in your arrest.
5. Membership here is based on rank as follows:

Rank Title Number of Posts
New Member 1 - 9
Junior Member 10 - 49
Full Member 50 - 499
Preferred Member 500- 999
Senior Member 1000 - 2400
GOLD MEMBER 2500 +

This actually does not mean anything useful and carries no weight whatsoever in regard to knowledge or privileges – it is just the way the software is set up and is meant to be something fun, nothing more. Please do not post excessively for the sole reason of increasing your post number or rank, as that is absolutely pointless, since we can adjust your post number at any time.

FORUM SECURITY

6. The board is VERY HEAVILY monitored and has many security features in place. We have a very low tolerance for people/groups not abiding to these terms and WE DO NOT GIVE SECOND CHANCES TO ANYONE, as we just do not have the time. ONE infraction is grounds for permanent suspension from the board, with NO opportunity to return. Here are some items that may be considered ground for suspension of membership privileges:

 

    a. Links to adult content, pages with links to adult content, near adult content (including model and swimsuit sites), or messages describing anything against the law will be removed as soon as possible. Any discussion of those is off topic and your membership privilege will be suspended.

    b. Foul language – we have an extensive list of word censors activated. Any attempt to use an unacceptable word results in you post being “beeped”. After a small number of “beeps”, your membership privilege is suspended.

    c. Press releases, newsletters, web pages, or copyrighted content may NOT be inserted into posts. Minor fair use excerpts of less than one paragraph (4 sentences) may be used if the content is publicly available on the internet. All other forms of inserted content from press releases, newsletters, web pages, or any other copyrighted content placed into messages will be removed without exception. A link to the content is acceptable and appropriate.

    d. Email excerpts of ANY type or length are not allowed on the pointpleasantbeach.com forums. There are no exceptions to this rule.

    e. The forums are not a venue for advertisements in any way. It will be the sole discretion of pointpleasantbeach.com and its moderators as to what constitutes an advertisement. Please don't drop promotional urls. We do allow you to add your website address in your signature ONLY, but not in the body of ANY posts. Shore Advantage has advertising space available in other areas of this website – the forums are NOT one of them. All forums are moderated STRICTLY for commercialized promotional posts. Self promotional URL drops and whisper campaigns are strictly forbidden within the forums and will be edited out.



POSTING GUIDELINES

7. Before posting in a forum, please read the guidelines for that forum. They are usually listed as an “ANNOUNCEMENT” at the beginning of each forum

This forum is not a venue for the resolution of personal disputes with members or companies.

10. Claims of action, flames, and calls to action against any company or person will be removed.

11. Be descriptive, specific, and succinct in your postings. This way your opinion and point is clearly understood and referenced.

12. Please use descriptive SUBJECTS. Your post will get more attentions if your subject describes your post content.

13. Please stay within the topic area of the forum you are posting a message in, and within any topic that another poster may have started. Because your posting may be more pertinent to another on going discussion, or it might spawn its own thread, it may be moved as a Moderator sees fit.
