Welcome to The Amaretto Family Forum!
This forum is hosted and managed by Bastian Hax & Markus Margulis to offer all Amaretto breeders a place to discuss their passion for breeding Amaretto products. Please remember that access to this forum is a privilege and not a right, which can be revoked by us at any time for reasons that include but are not limited to the violation of our Forum Rules. In order to keep this place as friendly and welcoming as possible for all, please read our Forum Rules carefully.
Keep in mind that the forum moderation rules serve only as guidelines. We reserve the right to evaluate and examine each incident on a case by case basis in order to decide on the action to be taken. Sanctions given may be more lenient or more severe depending on the case, including a temporary or permanent ban on their TAC website and forum account.
List of sanctions:
- 1st sanction (+1 warning point): Written Warning from one of the moderators or the TAF staff asking you to behave according to our Forum Rules.
- 2nd sanction (+1 warning point): 14 days ban from posting from your TAF Forum Account
- 3rd sanction (+1 warning point): 1 year ban from posting from your TAF Forum Account (permanent ban in extreme cases)
The sanctions might be harsh, but the solution is easy: Don’t break the rules and everyone will be happy.
Sanctions time out after 6 months. If the person receives more than 1 sanction within a 6 month period, he/she immediately receives the next level of sanction for each new strike. If a person doesn’t get any strikes for 6 months, his/her sanctions go back to 0.
