City Code of Law and Ethics

Selecting a UserName
- Don't use underscores when choosing your name. When wrapping a word in a small place, it's breaks at the spaces. With no spaces, it can't break the word and forces a column to be too wide. Please use spaces instead of underscores.
- Don't use all lowercase or any numbers when choosing your name. Your AOL login might be JDoe1803, but your name here should be something more natural. Think of it as picking a character name and not a login ID.
- If you choose a name that is offensive or register multiple times for the explicit purpose of causing mischief, then you will be banned.
- Note that if you make a mistake and want to change your name, you can edit your profile and modify how your name is displayed. In most cases, creating another username is unnecessary.
New Citizen Orientation Guide
- Please make an attempt to get acquainted with the forums and read a few threads before making your first posts. Most common questions have already been asked, so try not to be redundant.
- If you'd like to introduce yourself as a new citizen, please post in the forum called The Floating Log. Most other forums have content guidelines and these types of posts would be frowned upon there.
- Please read the FAQ before posting in any special forums (Lord of the Rings, Silmarillion, Library Council of Minas Tirith, etc) or special threads (Role-Playing, Trivia, Scramble, etc). There are guidelines for posting in these threads, and it saves much time and embarrassment if you take a few minutes and learn them.
Advertisement Guidelines
- Please note that commercial advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate at Minas Tirith.
- Advertisements of other Tolkien sites are tolerated so long as:
= The site does not have its own forum where Tolkien is discussed.
= The advertisements are kept to a reasonable number. A message in several threads would be considered excessive. One message in an appropriate thread would be fine.
= The site does not try to conduct their own business or advance their goals using the Minas Tirith forums. For example, conducting meetings or discussions about another site would not be allowed. Selling items that are offered through an organization and not by an individual would also not be allowed. However, a single advertisement of a site where these items are being sold would be fine.
- Considering the real-time nature of Minas Tirith, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Minas Tirith or any entity associated with Minas Tirith. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
- You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use Minas Tirith to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violates any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by Minas Tirith.
- Although Minas Tirith does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at Minas Tirith reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Minas Tirith and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).
- Minas Tirith also reserves the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.
