  • What do we want from this site?
    • PRIMARY OBJECTIVE

      To record eye witness testimony of any UFO Sighting, the person who saw it, writing an account of what they saw on our forums. We have reserved an entire forum for this precise target material. Look at the top forum listed "UFO SIGHTINGS" - this is reserved for eye witness testimony ONLY. NEW TOPICS started by anybody who is not recording eye witness material will be MOVED to other areas of the sight without notice or warning.
    • SECONDARY OBJECTIVE

      To promote a coming together of people who do not seek to deride any other member for what they believe, particularly as to the existence or otherwise of UFOs. We want a community of people who can discuss many other subjects without casting ridicule upon any key members who are known to support or not support the existence of UFOs. Basically we welcome ALL. Whether you believe in UFOs or not BUT show respect to all other members on here and get along! Anybody who is intent on ridiculing others, making light of UFO issues or using insulting or abusive comments will be warned, asked to leave and finally if they continue, chucked off the site.
    • FINAL OBJECTIVE
      To stack worthy and genuine articles in respect of UFOs in a reference area for our members to enjoy. We particularly seek photos and news items.

Excellent Falk,

I think it important for people to come here and discuss anything with out the fear or ridicule no matter how crazy their thoughts may be.

I think there is a HUGE problem out there

a person sees a UFO

they feel they will be ridiculed

so they say nothing

OR

they report the incident and hugely regret doing so after "negative" feedback from press and friends

SO they then backtrack

I think this is a significant element in the whole situation of assessing what the hell is actually going on

as for our rules - please don't forget the "FINAL OBJECTIVE" :) we need tons of photos 600+ wide please!! just email them to me

UNDERAGE USERS

Post by falkor » Fri May 29, 2009 6:31 pm

The Ufo forums .co.uk forum is intended for use by persons aged 16 years and above. Persons under that age may participate, subject to the conditions set out below. The term "moderator" includes "administrator".
  1. By using this forum, you are assumed to have read and agreed to these conditions. If you are under age, and do not agree to these conditions, you must cease using the forum immediately.
  2. On registering, a user who is under age must contact an Administrator or any Moderator to confirm their age.
  3. The user agrees that they will immediately make a parent or guardian aware that they have registered with Ufo forums .co.uk, and a parent or guardian should confirm to a Moderator that they are content for the user to participate. This confirmation must include a contact name and telephone number for the parent or guardian. The contact information will not typically be used unless we are uncomfortable with the details provided.
  4. The user may not display any private e-mail address, website or MSN identity on the Ufo forums .co.uk forum.
  5. The forum's Personal Messenger ("PM") and email features will be disabled for under-aged users.
  6. The user is not permitted to have any "offline" contact with any other forum user through the Ufo forums .co.uk forum. Any attempt or invitation to engage in such activity must be reported to a Moderator immediately.
  7. Anyone found acting contrary to the above will be suspended from the Forum indefinitely.
You can see a list of moderators here. Moderators should only be contacted via email (use the link in any moderator's profile) - do not post this information in open forum, it kind of defeats the object

Any questions or concerns about this policy, please feel free to reply on this topic now.
