Forum Rules and Conditions as of November 23, 2020
Thank you for your interest in the Afros & Audio Community Forum ("Forum"). Afros & Audio exists to prioritize community-driven discussions on podcasting and to permit its members to join with other community members in a discussion on topics related to our Afros & Audio podcasting community.


To ensure a civil forum community, users are required to follow certain rules. These rules are applicable for Afros & Audio Community Forum specifically:

Use Indicates Agreement with These Rules and Accuracy in Registration
In using Afros & Audio, you agree to adhere to the following rules and conditions. You further agree that all information you provide in your registration is accurate. If you do not agree with these terms, you should not register or participate in Afros & Audio.

Principles of Afros & Audio
The Afros & Audio Community Forum is an invitational forum. Above all, we ask simply that you voice your opinions in a tasteful manner, respecting the many others from around the world who form this online community.

If you're new to the forum, we recommend you spend some time following discussions ("lurking") before you participate. Discussions are more rewarding when users post messages relating to the discussion topic and avoid repetitive or excessively lengthy posts. Posts to Afros & Audio are publicly visible to all visitors; however, only registered members have the ability to interact and engage within the forum.

Users Are Legally Responsible and Liable for Posts
You agree that you are fully responsible and legally liable for the content that you post or made through the use of your name and password. If your password is lost, you may generate a new password by clicking the "Lost Password" button in the forum. If it is stolen, contact The Afros & Audio by e-mail.

The Right to Move or Delete Posts
The Afros & Audio Community Forum believes in free expression and active and open discussion; we do, however, expect users of Afros & Audio to follow rules that protect other users and persons from the invasion of their rights and privacy. The Afros & Audio moderators have no obligation to monitor the forums, or any submissions or other materials that you or other third parties transmit or post on Afros & Audio. The Afros & Audio Forum does, however, have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor Afros & Audio and the materials you transmit or post. Should you violate or allow another person to use your account to violate any of the following rules, we reserve the right to move, edit, or delete your post or discussion thread:

  • Posts that are defamatory, libelous, unnecessarily antagonistic, or an invasion of privacy or violation of the rights of another user, person, or party.

  • Posts that are obscene, abusive, harassing, threatening, off-topic, unintelligible, or inappropriate, as determined by the moderators of Afros & Audio and it’s users.

  • Posts that are in violation of copyright, trademark, or intellectual property laws, as determined by the moderators of Afros & Audio. Simply because the material is available on the Internet does not mean it is in the public domain; most materials are protected by law. In addition, simply including attribution does not permit users to post copyrighted materials on the forum; only extremely short excerpts or hyperlinks are generally permitted.

  • Posts in violation of local, state, United States, or international law.

  • Posts promoting, soliciting for, advertising for, referring to, or hyperlinking to commercial products, programs, or services; including contests, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or commercial enterprises. Afros & Audio is designed for discussion, information sharing, support, and resources.

  • Posts that are submitted repetitively, without any bearing on the discussion topic, or otherwise deliberately disrupting the forums ("spamming").

  • Posts that attempt to impersonate or fraudulently represent another user, person, or party.

  • Posts that include viruses, "Trojan Horses," or any other contaminating or destructive feature that may damage another person's computer.

  • Posts which are determined, solely under the authority of The Afros & Audio Forum and third parties employed or directed by it, to be otherwise objectionable.

Afros & Audio is a privately-held, privately-maintained forum. The Afros & Audio Community Forum has the right, but not the obligation, to remove any material from the forum which we, at our sole discretion, feel is not appropriate.

The Right to Remove Users
Every message in Afros & Audio is automatically labeled with your user name ("login name"). The Afros & Audio Forum reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to remove the posting privileges and/or eject a user permanently from the discussion forum for:

  • Violating the posting rules set forth in the previous section.

  • Impersonating or fraudulently representing another user, person, or party.

  • Theft or fraudulent use of another user's account or password.

  • Using an invalid or outdated e-mail address in one's forum preferences.

  • Registering a new account with a free e-mail address.

  • Using words or phrases as part of one's login name that is determined by The Afros & Audio Community Forum staff to be obscene, threatening, or otherwise offensive.

  • Registering more than one login name at a time.

  • Violating any portion of the terms of service set forth herein.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to seeing you in the forum.
