Therefore we take no responsibility and cannot be held liable for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy and completeness of every message.
By registering on this discussion system you agree that you will not post any material which is knowingly false, inaccurate, abusive, hateful, harassing, sexually orientated, threatening or invasive of a person's privacy, or any other material which may violate any applicable laws.
Failure to comply with these rules may result in the termination of your account, account suspension, or permanent ban of access to these forums. Your IP Address is recorded with each post you make on this discussion system and is retrievable by the forum staff if need-be.

In addition, after creating an account, please open an email sent to the registered email address and complete the account activation procedure. Accounts that have not been activated for a long period of time may be deleted at the discretion of the management authority holder for troll and fraud countermeasures. Registration for those who do not intend to post about longevity may be subject to measures such as account deletion as an unintended use.


2. Terms of service B (Other rules)

In this forum, the following actions are prohibited.
・Abusive, defamatory, or derogatory phrases based on race, sex, sexual orientation, age, religious or political beliefs, disabilities, ethnicity, nationality, etc. directed against another editor or a group of editors. Disagreement over what constitutes a religion, race, sexual orientation, or ethnicity is not a legitimate excuse.
・Writing personal information (real name, school of origin, telephone number etc) of other people without authorization.
・An act of exposing the password of own account. Public accounts are prohibited regardless of the authenticity of passwords.(Even if you committed as a lie on April Fools Day, this Terms of Service is valid.)Due to its nature, if you conduct an act of exposing your own account password, you will always be dealing with "permanently ban". Note: it is not possible to circulate the user's password whether it is administrator or server's admin.
・Using the same image as the avatar of another person's account registered without permission as an avatar of your own account (avatar is a small image displayed under the user name of the posts). Please do not use another's avatar without obtaining permission. Avatars used by other users can be checked in the member list.


3. About sanctions to users by management authority holder

Management authority holder is can set sanctions without discussion to users who have made inappropriate conduct that clearly violates the terms of use, such as newly created account who registered with the user name that slanders others, the user of only a sloppy post, the user who disclosed the password, spamming,  puppet-account or IP adress of banned user and an act of pretending to be another person for the purpose of entertainment or fraud.

For accounts created solely for obvious vandalism or account created by already banned user, please deal with deleting the account. In other case of users who made violates the terms of use, banned, setting warning level or removing authority will be occurred. If the alert level has reached 100%, and the user performs an action that raises the alert level anew, that user will be an expulsion measure. If expelled, you will not be able to view all pages of the forum.

However, in cases where it is not possible to exercise the authority at discretion, which is not the case described above, in a subtle case, report the situation to the admin's thread and conclude the discussion between the management authority holders and then exercise the authority please. If necessary, it's can set up a separate thread from the admin thread.

The management authority holder who first posted the topic (= started the discussion) notifies all other management authority holders using the private message function that the discussion has started. As a member of the forum team, it is desirable for all admins/mods to participate in the discussion.

In the case of a topic of sanctions, user's problem behavior, or quarrel among users, a management authority holder who doesn't give an opinion after 5 days after being start to asked for an opinion is considered to have no intention to express intention. It can be considered as agreement has been formed without waiting for the intention of the management authority holders.

If the user who violates the Terms of Service is found to have made a reflection or apology for it, please release the sanction that has been set. In the case of the manual release of sanctions, please go after discussion as well as the enforcement of sanctions.

If the administrator imposes sanctions on users, be sure to give them the "reason" for the sanctions. There are no particular details about the warning level and the period of sanctions due to it's case-by-case basis, but should be decide as much as possible in discussions among the management authority holders.

Also, In the case of needs to be discussion, it is considered as inappropriate for an individual admins/mods to exercise his or her own authority without consultation, and the exercise of that authority may be canceled by another admins/mods.

If a guest user (not logged-in user) performs an act that violates these terms of use, the administrator may take measures to ban that IP address. Because the deadline can not be set for the ban of the IP address on the basis of the forum specification, the administrator will manually perform the removation of banning.

All terms and conditions apply to all users regardless of guests, normal users, or users with administrative authority.

There are many rules and it may be annoying but it is a rule stipulated so that all users can comfortably use without unnecessarily causing confusion, so thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Trusted Member - Same as Member basically. in addition, can access and posting in private discussion thread zone. the difference between "Member" and "Trusted Member" is only can access and posting private discussion thread zone or can't.
