Thaiway.com Message Center Mission and Code of Conduct v2009.8

Mission:

The Thaiway.com Message Center forums are provided as a venue for the discussion and exchange of information about Thailand and other related issues. It is a place to submit queries and share experiences, information, concerns, news and views, and maybe even a little humor for the benefit of members. Responsible, non-abusive, free and open dialog is fostered between members in support of the site mission. Abusive posts shall not be tolerated.

Message Center Membership:

Browse access to the forums is a free benefit of Thaiway.com membership. Post access is a privilege granted to like-minded members supportive of Thailand and experiences in Thailand. Thaiway membership is a necessary but not sufficient condition for Message Center post privileges. Post access is contingent upon sharing the Message Center Mission and observing the Covenant and the Code of Conduct. Publicly demonstrated member conduct, prior to joining Thaiway.com that establishes a history of egregious conduct or chronically problematic behavior may be considered in the determination of granting Message Center post access.

Failure to observe the Covenant or the Code of Conduct shall constitute cause for termination of Message Center post privileges. Egregious member conduct in external forums may give cause for Thaiway.com Message Center post-access privileges to be reviewed and revoked at Management discretion. Forum shopping to violate member privacy will not be tolerated.

The determination of violations is the sole purview of the Thailand Visa Management. Message Center post privileges may be terminated without prior notice at the discretion of the Management.

Covenant:

The Thaiway.com Management takes very seriously the privacy of its members and recognizes the desire and in many cases the need for discretion. Personal information that can be used to identify a member, a user, whether or not a Thaiway.com member, shall not be permitted. No member shall publish or cause to be published such personal information. A violation of the Covenant shall be cause for immediate termination of Forum privileges.

Posting to the appropriate forum is essential to a well-run board. If you post to a board that is not on topic, the moderators will move this topic to the correct board. The decision to move topics is the sole discretion of the moderators and Thailand Visa management.

This website is geared toward an adult audience. However, we are not an adult pornographic website. NO posting of nudity in any form is allowed. Any such posts will be immediately deleted. In Thailand and in most places in the world, sex with minors is illegal. Anyone that promotes sex with someone under the legal age of consent will be reported to the authorities.

Thailand is a Kingdom in which respect for the Royal Family is expected. There will be no posts allowed that disparage or insult the royals.

No links to pornographic websites are allowed. Posting these links will result in immediate removal of the post and disillusion of the membership of the poster.

Personal information is any information that identifies a person or his residence or place of employment and includes but is not necessarily limited to:

- first and last name
- residential or business address
- phone number
- Social Security number
- credit card number
- e-mail address
- Photos of subject or subject's family/friends/pets/place of residence or employment/study, automobile*, or auto license plate.
- IP address

All GoGo and Host work-related information is exempt provided the person, with intent, has made that information publicly available or has given tacit approval for such information to be made available.

Exception: A member may choose to disclose his first name in “signing†his posts. Under that circumstance, usage of a first name to address or refer to that member shall not be deemed a violation of the Covenant. Without public announcement by the individual, such first name usage shall be considered a violation of the Covenant and Code of Conduct.

* Under circumstances where some unusual aspect of the automobile would make it readily identifiable.

In all instances, Thaiway.com management shall be the final arbiter of what constitutes personal information.

Code of Conduct:

Thaiway.com membership is restricted to Adults Only. That Message Center members shall be expected to behave as adults is not an undue burden. The expected conduct standard for the forums is the same as that observed everyday in society by adults in our neighborhoods, towns, and cities. It is based on straightforward mature behavior, civility and courtesy that you find in a neighborhood Pub or Tavern where neighbors and acquaintances joined by occasional strangers come together to socialize in good temper, to share conversation, and to hoist, in moderation, a glass of favorite beer or wine or a cup of coffee or tea.

These forums are NOT presented for abusive arguing and name calling, score settling, thread stalking, or general cyberspace blood sport for the chronically bored.

As in any Pub or Tavern, an egregiously abusive or chronically problematic customer (member) shall be banned from further post participation.

In all instances, Thaiway management shall be the final arbiter of what constitutes egregiously abusive conduct or when a member has crossed the line of "chronically problematic".

In general, terminated memberships shall not be eligible for reinstatement.

Welcome

We maintain a 100 percent banner free zone. We do not believe in burdening our members with horrible looking ads in order to make a profit. Thaiway is a free site in every aspect of the term. No banners, no spam e-mail and no requests for donations for the site. We may occasionally make members aware of certain charity events that are established organized charities in the Land of Smiles but we will never have an event in order to gain personal revenue for ourselves from the members. We created the site as totally out of our love for Thailand, the people of Thailand and to try to get more people to visit this wonderful country.

Welcome to the Thaiway.com Message Center. We hope that you will find your time in attendance pleasant, informative, and from time to time maybe even a little fun. Share your experiences, comments, and questions with members of like-minded interests. The Message Center is what you make of it. We hope it is put too good and effective use. Thanks for coming in. The floor is yours.

Because of Spam issues, we require admin approval before posting. Your first post will be Invisible until an admin approves it. Once you are approved and verified, all other posts are visible immediately. If you do not verify your e-mail that is sent for verification from our site within 10 days, your account is deleted. If you are an SEO company and spam either the forums or the profiles, we will remove your information from the site including all posts, profiles and comments (wasting your valuable time). We do not mind if businesses in Thailand use the site to promote their company as long as they are participating in the forums.
