Principles of the USchedule.com Forums
Above all, we ask simply that you voice your opinions in a tasteful manner, respecting the many others who form this online community.
You might want to 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 the USchedule.com Forum are publicly visible to all visitors. For non-public questions and comments, please see the Contact Us page.
The USchedule.com Forum permits users to post hypertext links to content hosted and maintained by third parties. Although linked sites are not generally reviewed by moderators, links are subject to treatment like any other type of content posted to the Forum. You may not include a link in the Forum that directs users to any content or information that, if posted in the Forum, would constitute a violation of these Forum Rules and Conditions.
The linked sites are not moderated by USchedule.com, are not under USchedule.com. control and your access to any linked site is at your own risk. You should use your own judgment before you use any link or access any linked site. When leaving the Forum using any link provided by a user, you should be aware that USchedule.com’s terms and policies no longer govern, and, therefore, you should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of that site.
USchedule.com makes no claim or representation regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of sites accessible by hyperlink from the Forum. The ability to include links is provided only as a convenience to you, and the inclusion of any link by a user of the Forum does not imply affiliation, endorsement, or adoption by USchedule.com of the linked site or any information contained therein.
