Registration Agreement

Forum Rules:

1. No abusive language or personal attacks. This includes even if it is just retaliation for what another member said to you. Moderators will not distinguish between who started it and who is just responding. This is not a court of law. Consider this carefully if someone attacks you - do NOT retaliate or you risk being banned without notice. Instead, just report the member and give specific examples of their breach of the rules. Remember if someone you don't like breaks the rules and you don't, you have the last laugh.

2. No copyrighted material or intellectual property. It will just put the forum in danger of being shut down. It doesn't matter if the material is from a scammer - copyrighted material must be respected.

3. Spamming and/or promotion of products and services may only take place in the "for sale" section. This includes services like moneybookers, systems or whatever. If you post promotions or you are found to have been promoting against the rules, you will be banned. No-one wants spam.

To Sellers: if you post an email address or ask people to contact you privately, perhaps to tell them about your great system, you and your posts will be removed. If you promote here, you must do it openly where you naturally will be questioned by more experienced members. This is because scammers lure victims to private discussions. To members: be wary of anything for sale and of positive reviews because very frequently roulette system sellers post under fake names to give themselves false positive reviews.

4. Respect other people's opinions. Especially for experienced players, when someone says they have a holy grail that bets on red/black, it is hard to resist. Say what you think, but don't attack people personally.

5. Do not inhibit free expression of ideas / criticisms. Everyone should feel free to speak their mind without fear of being attacked or ridiculed.

6. Do not behave in any way that is unjustly unpleasant, or makes participation in the forum unappealing. In other words, be good and respectful to others - don't be a dickhead. Those who are behaving in any unacceptable way will usually be warned first, but if the behavior continues, banning will result.

7. No clickable links without admin's approval. If you are a new member and post any link, expect it to be removed without notice. Clickable links from more established members may be accepted.

8. No multiple IDs - if you are found to have multiple accounts on the forum, all will be removed.

9. No "baiting", which is where you brag about how great your system is, but you don't share anything except perhaps obscure details that lead people along. The forum is a place for open sharing. If you "bait" people, expect to be banned.

The most common issue with any of the roulette forums is that when someone shares a system or idea, members will either attack it or try to explain WHY the system fails - members get sick of seeing the same nonsense again and again, so they can be a little insensitive to contributing members. The system designer (contributor) then feels victimized and that they're being attacked, and the "critics" can't see the problem as they're just telling the truth. The contributor then doesn't want to contribute again. My suggestions to minimize this problem are below:

If you share a system or ideas and feel you are being unfairly attacked or spoken to poorly:

1. Report the offending members, and specify the exact posts that you felt were a problem. If a moderator is the offending member, tell them about it and if you feel their behavior does not change, report the issue to me (Steve). All of the moderators have good intentions, but sometimes their "good faith" comments are misconstrued for what they are.

2. Understand that rather than attacking you, members are probably trying to explain the reality of what you published. If you are correct and they are wrong, stick to your guns and discuss the matter with the forum - that is exactly what the forum is for. One way or another, truth eventually wins, always.

If you are reading or testing another person's system, and find it fails:

1. Behave in a way that shows appreciation for the member contributing. Be polite and explain reasons for your beliefs. Do not shoot them down in flames. If you spell it all out to them and they still don't see it, just leave them alone and let them find out for themselves.

2. Understand on many forums, people are scared to share because of how others may react to their strategy/ideas. Contribute to creating an open and friendly environment where systems, ideas and concepts are discussed.

If you feel a particular member is breaking the rules or generally bringing the forum down:

You can tell them what you think they're doing wrong, but be polite and impersonal. Do NOT attack them or you yourself may be banned. If their behavior continues, do not create a thread to complain about them. Just contact the moderators directly with the following information:

i. Who the member is, and

ii. Exactly what behavior you find unacceptable and GIVE ACTUAL EXAMPLES WE CAN SEE FOR OURSELVES. If you just tell us generally some member is being a nuisance, expect us to do nothing. We do not read every post and judge every comment. If you have a problem with someone, you have to clearly explain why.

If you think a moderator isnt doing their job properly, then contact me directly via PM to explain the situation.

Rules & Guidelines For Moderators

1. Your job is simply to enforce the basic rules above, without bias.

2. Expect that you may sometimes be the target of attacks. Don't take it personally. You can't keep everyone happy at the same time.

3. Do not moderate other moderators. If another moderator does something inappropriate, let me know, and please give actual examples.

4. Be very careful about what posts moderate. You need to find the balance between allowing free speech, and something that's over the line. People get very upset when you moderate their posts, so this is only a step you take if something is clearly inappropriate.

5. If you are unsure of what to do in particular cases, please ask me directly.

6. Become familiar with how the forum's moderation features are used. The last thing we want is to completely mess up the forum. There are regular backups, but we'd rather avoid disasters.

Removal of accounts and posts

1. Besides documents (such as ebooks) that are already copyrighted, any material you post in the forum becomes the property of the forum owner. This because some members have arguments with others, then ask to have their account and all their posts deleted. We don't do this because it would leave "holes" throughout the forum. If you don't want to post here anymore, then don't login and post here. If you don't want to share information, then don't post it in the first place.

2. In some cases you may change your mind about information you shared, and request for it to be removed. This is usually ok, but it is up to the moderators to decide if removal is justified and appropriate.
