FCP Forum Terms & Rules
Thank you for taking the time to read over the rules & guidelines of the Poker Forum at Full Contact Poker ("FCP"). As a registered member, your online poker community forum offers you the opportunity to post & answer questions on a wide-range of poker topics to help improve your understanding of the many variations of poker games. Your online poker community forum is home to over 20,000 members from beginning to advanced poker players including the likes of 2004 Player of the Year, Daniel Negreanu and other professional touring poker players. As you can see, FCP's forum is a large moderated community of poker players and enthusiasts; in order to provide these members with a friendly, relaxed and educational poker resource there are rules and guidelines in place and enforced by administrators and moderators here to ensure a good atmosphere for all.
Please understand any member not adhering to FCP's forum rules may be banned with or without notice.
Any post that contains offensive viewpoints towards any race, religion or sexual preference will not be tolerated.
Do not troll or provoke others: In Internet terminology, a troll is a person who enters an established community such as an online discussion forum and intentionally tries to cause disruption, often in the form of posting messages that are inflammatory, insulting, incorrect, inaccurate, or off-topic, with the intent of provoking a reaction from others.
Do not 'hijack' threads: Thread hijacking is the act of trying to steer a web forum discussion thread off topic by discussing a subject entirely unrelated to the subject at hand.
Please refrain from using offensive language or aggressive behavior towards fellow members of FCP's Poker Forum. At times, however, topics may present spirited debates and as such FCP's staff has implemented word filtering to censor certain words commonly viewed as offensive or vulgar. These word filters are in place to inspire a clean and friendly environment for all; we ask that all members respect that when posting messages.
Any member found posting content or images containing nudity, sexual references, or any other derogatory content or images will be banned without notice. This includes linking to other resources containing such material such as websites, newsgroups, or other content feeds.
Members are restricted from soliciting money or requesting transfers of funds to or from themselves or other parties including non-members.
Multiple forum accounts are not allowed at FCP.
FCP asks that members please post their message in the appropriate categories of FCP's forum. If members are unable to find the best place to post their messages they can use the forum's Off Topic section or are welcome to suggest a new forum category for consideration by forum staff. Any thread found in an area of the forum that fits the theme of a different category may be moved to the more appropriate category by forum staff without notice.
If you feel offended by another member's conduct please contact FCP's forum staff for review at email@example.com.
Advertising and Spam
Blatant advertising will not be tolerated; this includes posting messages or sending private messages containing links or references to online poker rooms with affiliate or promotional codes in them in text or images. Additionally, if this content is found in member avatars or signatures it will be removed as well. Posting avatars, use of private messaging and signatures are privileges, not a right.
Do not promote a business, website or any similar entity.
Administrators & Moderators
FCP's administrators and moderators reserve the right to delete, edit or otherwise modify any content posted at their discretion, as well as, the right to ban any member, username, IP or email address without notice.
