Terms and Conditions of Use

Recommended Posts

These forums are owned and operated by Frontier Girls LLC and are made available to help answer any questions regarding the Frontier Girls or Quest Club programs or Curiosity Untamed websites as well as to share ideas and resources to help make the programs better for everyone involved.  We offer these forums for free to anyone who wishes to participate as long as they register with the site.

User Expectations

Above all, users are expected to be kind, helpful, and respectful. Assume the best of people and try to make things better. Beyond just seeking solutions, users are encouraged to help others. If they know the answer to someone else’s question, it is greatly appreciated that they offer assistance. This is by no means mandatory, and no one is compelled to help anyone else.

Guideline violations will result in posting access being restricted by first being flagged for moderation. This will require a moderator to approve a user’s posts. This restriction is meant to be temporary, and will be lifted when the moderators feel the situation has been resolved. If a user cannot follow the guidelines after that, their account will be blocked from posting. Further actions (such as restricting access to the forums as a whole) can and will be applied if necessary.

Contacting a Moderator: Reporting of abusive or unlawful submissions or content or activity that violates our Terms and Conditions

If you have knowledge of abusive, infringing, or otherwise unlawful Submissions or other content on this website or other unlawful or abusive conduct associated with this website, we want to know. Please send an email to kerry@frontiergirls.com describing the content or conduct in detail, including the web address where the content is found and the date and time viewed, and we will investigate removing this material from the website. For claims regarding alleged copyright infringement, see the contact information in that section below.

If a post needs moderator attention, there is a ‘report post’ button on every thread. That will add the post to a queue moderators watch and follow up with. If immediate action is needed, or the situation is not in a specific post, users should email kerry@frontiergirls.com.

"G" Rated Posts Only

All posts, links and replies must be "G" rated and appropriate for all audiences.  Keep your language clean and please make sure to check all links before posting to ensure all content and language is appropriate for all ages.

Do Not Abuse Other Organizations

Posts that directly defame other scouting organizations will be removed and the user reprimanded.  While discussing other scouting organizations, posts may refer to personal experiences and opinions only and may be subject to moderation.  

Do Not Spam

The forums are here for providing users with a venue to get help with questions and to get ideas for bettering the program for the youth they serve. In light of this, please refrain from using signatures, new topics, or responses to existing topics as a venue to promote your business or services unless first approved by a moderator.  Any thread that offers any product or service for money can be closed at any time. Random advertising may be deleted and user access restricted if the moderator does not feel the post is appropriate to the topic or the product/service is not of value to our members.

Do Not Bump Posts

Do not bump posts. Bumping a post to “the top” does not help a topic get noticed. The volunteers who try to answer questions look for those without replies first. If someone bumps a post, then it disappears from the ‘No Replies’ view.

We have a list of no replies. When a post is bumped, it becomes harder for it to be discovered and reduces the chances of getting appropriate help. Some forum volunteers use that list to prioritize over other answered threads.

Moderators will delete bumps they find. This is in order to help posts get back into the No Replies listing, where they are more likely to get an answer.

Do Not Create Multiple Accounts (Sockpuppets)

Do not create multiple accounts, aka sockpuppets. Sockpuppetry is often used for nefarious reasons, and as such we ask that you simply don’t do it. If a sockpuppet account is identified, it will be banned immediately.

Moderation

We need to keep the forums friendly, so, occasionally, topic content will be moderated. In severe cases, users may be blocked. This might mean anything from the light editing of some posts to complete removal of topics and deactivation of accounts. It should really go without saying, but the following are likely candidates for moderation or intervention

  • Do not post email addresses, ask others to post their email or solicit contacting people off of the forums.
  • Do not post login information, even test IDs and test passwords.
  • Do not post another person’s private information (job, age, living situation, location, etc).
  • Do not harass or abuse people or organizations.
  • Do not post spam and affiliate links, offensive posts, posts without content, or flames.
  • Do not post in all caps.
  • Do not seek legal or accounting advice on the forums: We are not lawyers or accountants, and if we were we would then open our selves to liabilities.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive. Every post is judged on its own merits.

User Comments, Uploads, Submissions and Feedback

All posts, comments, uploads, submissions, and feedback (collectively, the “Submission(s),” which may also be referred to as “User-Provided Content" when posted by a user to a Frontier Girls LLC owned site and which collectively are “Submission(s) including in the form of comments, feedback, submissions, or other information.

Claims Regarding Copyright Infrigements

Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512), Frontier Girls LLC has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed copyright infringement for content, including content posted by users in interactive portions of any Frontier Girls LLC site (“Submissions” or “User-Provided Content”) governed by these Terms and Conditions. We also have designated an agent to receive notices of claimed copyright infringement. If you believe in good faith that your copyright has been infringed, you may submit a notice to kerry@frontiergirls.com. To be effective, a notice must be a written communication provided to Frontier Girls LLC copyright agent and must contain:

  1. An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;

  2. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;

  3. A description specifying the location of the material that you claim is infringing;

  4. Your telephone number and email address; 

  5. A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

  6. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

You acknowledge that failure to meet the elements above will not be a valid notice and Frontier Girls LLC may not consider your request. 

 

And that’s all. Enjoy your stay at the forums! Oh.. And, when you’re done, please mark your topic as “Resolved”. Thanks.
