Terms of Service and Rules

Dear Fellow Reefers,

We have implemented the following guidelines for using our community forums. This guide is designed to strike a balance between the main goal of our forums - providing support and upholding the closely-knitted reefing community as well as the self-preservation & interests of this forum and its members. By registering and participating at sgreefers.com, this will bind you to the following agreement. We reserve the rights to modify these rules at any time without giving prior notice.

We require all posts to be positive, constructive, and on topic. We may delete individual posts that could ruin a good topic thread or deemed to be spam posting for the sole purpose of post count accumulation.

This forum exists for the exchange of useful information among hobbyists, and the following sections, SGReef Auction, Marine Galleria and Freshwater Mart are unique privileges for fellow SGReefers who support this forum's mission. If you are not a registered member of SGReefers, you will not be allow to start a selling thread in the aforementioned sections. Additionally, with employment of Xen Central Trading System, we hope to protect members by reducing the numbers of quick-sale scam artists and repeated commercial-only entities who are only interested in making quick bucks out of this forum.

We reserve the rights to remove any topics we deem inappropriate or disruptive to our community. Please note that, from time to time, topics may be removed for being inappropriate even though your individual post in that topic may have been perfectly fine.

We reserve the rights to remove any topics / posting on any remark on any of our sponsors if they requested so. If you wish to make a feedback, please email or send a PM to the vendor directly.

Having fun is good, we like fun. There are several general forums for non-marine related topics. Please keep it positive and polite.

We do not censor opinions or ideas on our SGReefers Clubhouse and Lepak Corner forums but we do take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement.

Racial and political remarks is strongly discouraged here. It will be removed immediately without hesitation and disciplinary actions taken against the offending member.

We will not tolerate any spammers in the forum posting just to gain post counts as there is no reason for a member to warrant this behaviour. If we feel that you are spamming or someone complains to us about you posting rubbish just to gain post, your account might be ban temporary or permanently.

You may not make personal attacks on other users and / or staff members either in public forums or private messages.

You may not use profanity. It is unprofessional and offensive and will not be tolerated. We will employ offensive word filters in place for the most vulgar terms. Circumventing those word filters will result in punitive action.

You may not advertise or promote other companies or their programs. Links promoting other forums or communities may be removed at our sole discretion. Please contact forum admin for more information regarding our sponsorship schemes.

We reserve the right to ban any member who violates our guidelines or disrupts our community. We will be fair and warning will be issued in most cases.
