Info EVERYONE must read before posting - disclaimer inc.

#1 Postby chadtm80 » Wed Sep 21, 2005 1:07 am

Storm2k.org has implemented a new policy for the 2005 season and all seasons to follow.. If you post a forecast in this forum it MUST be preceded by the following..

The following post is NOT an official forecast and should not be used as such. It is just the opinion of the poster and may or may not be backed by sound meteorological data. It is NOT endorsed by any professional institution including storm2k.org For Official Information please refer to the NHC and NWS products.


If a forecast is made without using the disclaimer we will add it for you and send a reminder PM.. If it is "forgotten" repeatedly your posts will be removed, and your membership with storm2k may be removed as well.. This is for the safety of everyone. Please abide by it :-)

Here is to a safe 2005 Tropical Season!!

Thanks,
Storm2k Management


All readers of the storm2k Forum please read the "disclaimer" above as it applies for everything found here within

___________________________________________________________


No Political Posts

We will no longer allow political posts concerning the horrible tragedy that is unfolding in Lousiana and Mississippi and Alabama.

Staff has been given instructions that any further political posts are to be deleted and the originators account is to be suspended until a decision can be made if further action is warranted. There will be no warnings issued when this is done.

EVERYONE is on edge, worried, upset, and/or tired. We are witnessing history, horrible history in the making. Let's be compassionate and considerate of each other and the millions affected.

There will be no commenting allowed. this thread is locked.

_______________________________________________________________

DO NOT USE OFFICIAL MAPS

The use of official maps such as those produced by NOAA or similar agencies by individual members for use in posting forecasts is not allowed at STORM2K even with a disclaimer attached. Any one who continues this practice will be subject to suspension of posting privileges. If you have any questions concerning this feel free to contact a staff member. A previous announcement was made concerning this and apparently some have forgotten about it so it is now being reposted. Thank you for your cooperation.

From the staff of STORM2K:

Recently, the staff has been having to deal with more and more rude, bashing, sniping and uncalled for remarks from members about posts made by other members. IT IS OUT OF CONTROL AND MUST STOP!!!

We have made NUMEROUS announcements, requests, and even individual pms to ask that the practice of making rude comments about others posts stop and it has not. Due to this fact we are instituting a new policy immediately. If a staff member finds a post to be of the nature mentioned above two things will happen. 1st the post will be removed and 2nd the person making the post will be immediately suspended for 3 days without a warning being issued. We are forced into this by the continued practice of a few who feel they know better than the staff how to police the message board.

The staff is here for a reason-to keep the board running as smoothly as possible. We can not do this without your help, but that help has to come to us privately, not by a nasty remark on the open message board.

This thread is not an open comment thread for the general board and therefor is locked. If you have comments you feel need to be made concerning this use the pm feature or email to do so to any of the staff members. We will read and address the comments as quickly as we can. Comments concerning this announcement made on the open board will be dealt with in the same manner as above.
