PocketFives.com Members and Readers:

Welcome to the PocketFives.com PTP Expats - Shooting Off Forum, a place where PTP Expats and others can view, discuss, and post any issues that are related or not related to poker. We ask that our members abide by the following Forum Rules in order to ensure a pleasant posting experience for veteran and new members alike.

Forum Guidelines

1. Adult Content: Pornographic images and video content are prohibited on all PocketFives.com Forums. Anyone posting this will have their account privileges revoked. This includes links to porn sites and using any pornographic content as a personal avatar, etc. Additionally, graphic images or images of gore are also prohibited.

2. Profanity (Thread Titles): Profanity should be kept out of all thread titles. It's fine within the content of a post, as long as it's not a flame or personal attack against a fellow member.

3. Moderation/Administrative Issues:The PocketFives.com Forums are monitored by a group of volunteer Forum Moderators. Questions/Suggestions/Complaints regarding forum moderation and administration should be kept off the boards completely. You can send feedback by clicking the "Report Post" icon located below each post. Posting about these issues will likely result in a lengthy suspension of your account privileges. Such posts may include (but are not limited to) discussion of deleted posts, thread placements (moved to another forum), banned members, site policy, and forum policy. P5s MODERATION POLICIES ARE NOT UP FOR PUBLIC DEBATE.

4. Solicitation/Spam/Selling Items: Unauthorized advertising on our site will result in a permanent ban of your posting privileges. This includes using our site traffic to buy/sell items, recruit talent for your own project, generate results for a study, mentioning/plugging of external websites including social websites like MySpace/Facebook for the purposes of solicitation, linking to sales offers on other sites, and telling people to contact you via Private Message, email, Skype, IM service, or URL. Another "forum poaching" technique that is NOT ALLOWED on PocketFives is posting a link/URL to an external site and directing our readers to vote for you, your friend, your pet, your kid, etc. Randomly linking to or mentioning other websites is also prohibited.

*NOTE* The definition of "unauthorized advertising" is broad. Please check with Jaxon before posting something that is even remotely questionable.

6. Site Responsibility: PocketFives.com is NOT responsible for any monetary agreements that are posted on our boards. Money exchanges hands AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

7. Copyrighted Text: Do not post full-text copyrighted material on PocketFives. You can post the title, the first paragraph (or a select few sentences) and a link to the source. Any full-text work will be deleted and a warning will be sent. Repeat warnings may be grounds for a temp ban. Repeated temp bans may lead to a perma ban. As a general rule, the posted amount should not exceed 5 sentences.

8. Issues with Thread Titles: We made a separate category about this because people do it so often, and it's extremely annoying. DON'T post a thread title in all caps. Your post isn't more important than all the other posts in the forum, even if you think it is. Posts with titles in all caps may be deleted, unless a moderator feels like typing it all out for you in lower-case. Repeat violators of this rule will be suspended.

* Report Abuse: Members are encouraged to use the "Report Post" option for posts that break forum rules. These messages go directly to our Moderation Team.
