Welcome to “Greenfield McClain High School” web forum!
This forum is to be used for the sole purpose of sharing memories, planning reunions, and important information regarding our Greenfield McClain High School. In an effort to improve the signal to noise ratio on our forums we ask that you abide buy these guidelines when participating. In time, we will have many registered members from all over where tremendous diversity, age, and religion are factors to consider when participating in our forum discussions. We want to promote a clean, healthy, respectful atmosphere where people are not afraid to ask questions, participate in this community, and have a good time discussing the things we love most about our school and fellow classmates.
With that in mind, here are the rules:
THE BIG RULES: Violation of these rules is grounds for the IMMEDIATE banning of your account.
1.) No profanity in subject lines or signatures.
2.) No spamming or commercial solicitation of any kind. Any such messages will be removed at the discretion of either a forum moderator or administrator. Selling of individual items is permissible by a private owner in our Classifieds forums (if this were to exist here), however selling multiple items of the same product is considered a commercial post and will be removed. Commercial solicitation through the Instant Message function by non-advertisers is strictly forbidden and grounds to have your account terminated.
3.) No flaming of other members to incite or perpetuate a conflict or argument. ANY personal attacks or name calling will get you banned.
4.) No bombing forums or threads with pointless posts.
5.) No linking or posting of pornographic or objectionable/inappropriate material.
6.) Do not impersonate other individuals or falsely represent yourself.
7.) Do not discuss, suggest, engage, or encourage any illegal activity on the forums. Linking to locations that deal with any such activity is also forbidden.
8.) Posting under a secondary username for the purpose of arguing, degrading, or belittling other members is grounds for losing both your primary account and your secondary account.
9.) You must have a valid e-mail account in your profile so you can be reached by a forum moderator or administrator.
10.) Signatures can have a maximum of five (5) lines.
11.) No “McClainHS” related user names are permitted by non-staff members and will be deleted or changed with or without notice.
12.) Because of the volatile nature of the following topics: religion, sexual orientation, race, class, gender, and political opinion, users are advised against starting threads or entering posts expressing thoughts, beliefs or opinions on these topics. Any posts or threads on these matters may be removed at the discretion of the moderators or administrators.
The following posting guidelines are here to help you (and others) have an enjoyable experience here:
1.) Respect both forum moderators and administrators. It is a thankless job that we do, and cleaning up other people’s messes is never fun.
2.) No SHOUTING. Don’t use all caps when posting. It is difficult to read and annoying.
3.) Try to post to the forum that is most appropriate for the topic being presented.
4.) No cross-posting. (This is posting the same topic in more than one forum)
5.) Refrain from using profanity or cr3ative spell1ng to get around the censor filters. Posts that circumvent the censor may be removed.
6.) Respect the privacy of other members and individuals. Do not post personal information about them (i.e. addresses, phone numbers, passwords, etc.)
7.) Observe all copyright laws when posting copyrighted material.
8.) Do not post messages that violate Federal, State, or Local laws which include, but are not limited to, anything that violates a copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or is bound by NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).
I hope that sums most of it up. If you feel I have left anything out, please send me an email and let me know so I may consider revising these rules.
