IPB Registration Rules Question


Guest truthseeker

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this question. Please feel free to move it or just answer by PM if anyone has any information. - Thanks!

I am a member of several message boards that are hosted by Invision Power Board. All (including this one) contain the following paragraph on the registration form:

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.

What is the policy if a member of a board hosted by IPB violates this agreement?

Thank you,

They're sentenced to hang by the neck until dead. >_<

Actually, each board's owner is responsible for setting up and enforcing the rules for their forum. Some are just too lazy to modify the sample file or write their own. :)

I highly doubt they (IPS) would want the implications of such material on there servers. If so.. im sure if the agreement was violated, suspension/termination of the account would be one of the costs. I'm just speculating. I realy have no clue. :)

How do you know the boatd in question is hosted by IPS, most of the time that information is only known by the owner of the site. IPS is not going to do anything about the forum in question as long as they are not doing something illegal, then they have no cause to do anything.

Breaking the agreement of a online forum is not breaking the law.

Unless it's their community hosting ("boardname.invisionzone.com" for instance) package.

Agreed. I doubt they'd even want to know about this unless someone was hosting pirate warez, etc. The responsibility rests with the site's root admin.

I see only headings as "Settings for group: Board Guidelines". But there are none. It gives me the option of adding 'NEW SETTINGS', but how that can be registration page changes?
Is something I am missing?

It is not IPS's responsibility. They make the software - they don't administer every forum that utilises the software. You would need to contact the administrator of the forum - regardless of who hosts it.

Well if Invision is hosting it, I dont think they care about any of that stuff. It's the administrator of the forum is responsible for that, and can setup his/her own rules. But there is one golden rule im sure IPS holds over all forums hosted by them, no illegal or piracy related stuff. I mean like actually doing that stuff, not talking about it.
