RULES!
Purpose of this forum is to have a place for people who enjoy gambling, improving gambling strategies, exchanging ideas, stories and to meet similar people with the same passion. Here are some rules, but our intention is not to create a community with conducting strict rules. We want to create a relaxed and positive place. Hope you enjoy it.

1. General Posting Rules:

1.1 - No "Flaming": Please do not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest. Abusive behavior will not be tolerated and your account may be suspended. Please refrain from potty mouth language.

1.2 - No "cross posting". In other words, do not post the same message to more than one thread or topic section. Cross postings will be deleted and posting privileges may be suspended for doing so.

1.3 - No "Spamming". Casino ads are not permitted anywhere in our forum - sorry. All promos and spam (or cloaked ads) will be removed. Also, please do not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. When in doubt, ask! Shills be warned. Spammers and shills who violate this rule will have their email addresses and IPs posted in public view. You've been warned.

1.4 - No posting of privileged information. Please remember to respect others privacy. In the public forum, do not post real names, email addresses, or other personal identifiers that may be considered privileged information. If these items are already publicly available, this shouldn't be a problem. But if these are from private correspondence, or from some user database, discretion is advised.

1.5 - No "Offensive" Posts, Links or Images: Please do not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, racist, sexist, discriminatory, or otherwise violative of any local or international laws. This includes links in your signature, profile, bookmarks as well as posted images, photos and avatars. The moderators will ultimately decide if something is appropriate or not.

1.6 - No "Libelous" Posts. Do not make posts that could be considered libelous, defamatory, or posting merely to cause harm to another's business. Opinions are expected, but do not attack others with accusations of criminal activity unless this has been proven in a court of law.

1.7 - No posting of copyrighted material. Do not post entire articles of copyrighted material. Please provide an excerpt, synopsis, and/or a link. Postings becomes the property of DiceTalk.com when posted. Any copying and pasting of posts from this forum to others should be done with explicit permission or with discretion, (i.e. press releases, jokes, other information that is in the public domain are to be used freely). Also, do not post copies of postings/threads from other forums unless you have explicit permission to do so. When in doubt, ask.

1.8 - No portal wars. Do not start a bitch session between one portal and another. Portal wars will not be tolerated.

1.9 - Do not register an account fraudulently. Fraudulent accounts are defined as accounts created specifically to flame others (hiding behind a mask of anonymity), or accounts opened primarily to spam the board or to act as shills. Do not register more than one account in the forum. Additional accounts will be deemed as bogus, and you may find yourself out on the sidewalk lying on your back staring at the stars.

1.10 - Members who commit player fraud (charge backs, fake accounts, etc.) will be banned from the forum.

1.11 - Please do not exploit this board to promote your own personal agenda. If the moderators (and members) feel that you are spamming the board with links or ad copy to your website, harassing members with agenda laden posts, or consistently ragging on a casino that did you wrong, etc., your account may be suspended.

1.12 - Postings that incite fraudulent player activity are not welcome and will probably be deleted. Members who encourage fraud will probably be kicked to the curb.

1.13 - PMs are Private Messages - they are personal and are meant to be this way. They are not there to flaunt or to abuse one another. If you share these messages, please either request permission to do so or use discretion. Personal matters should be kept personal. Abuse this function and you will find it disabled.

1.14 - No Trolls. From Wikipedia: "A Troll is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion." Troll accounts will be permanently disabled.

1.15 - We do not endorse use of devices or software which may be used for cheating in games (like card counting software for iPhone, devices for predicting where will the roulette ball fall etc.). This is a subject for felony charges.
