Registration on this site.

There is an increasing number of users registering on here just as a means to promote their own web sites and to spam the forum.
This forum is intended for cavers, to use to discus caving related things. It is not provided for the purpose of self promotion or to aid google rankings on personal web sites.
As of today anybody promoting a non caving web site without permission from the moderators will have their account deleted.
If you are a long standing member that has posted within the forums this will not apply.
I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time checking users to see if they are legitimate. I have better things to do with my time.
There are quite a lot of people registered on here with no posts, from now on there will be a policy of deleteing accounts of anybody who has not posted after 1 month. The purpose of this forum is discussion, you can view the boards without registration so we assume that anybody that registers and doesn't post is a potential spammer.
If you are genuine and don't want us to delete your account then please contact us ASAP.

If you feel your account has been deleted unfairly then please contact the moderators who will look into it.

Whilst I am at it, here is a reminder of the terms you all agree to when you register. Just for your information and as a reminder.
While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

By clicking Register below you agree to be bound by these conditions.
