AVN does have some basic rules and guidelines for the people posting here.
These rules and guidelines are intended to keep these forums focused on
their original purpose: provide a fun, friendly and intelligent
atmosphere; create a respectable Community for the people who come here;
and prevent abuse of these forums and the people who post here.
For the above reasons, all AVN users are expected to abide by these rules
for all areas of AVN (Posts, Signatures, Profiles, Private Messages, etc).
Posters failing to abide by the rules may be warned, banned, or even
removed from our forum(s) altogether. Every time you post here, you accept
1- Posts containing any material
which may be considered in the absolute discretion of AVN to be personal
attacks, harassment of any kind, abusive or vulgar language, sexually
oriented material, profanity, pornography, threats, invasion of privacy,
racially or otherwise discriminatory, or anything that is otherwise
violative of any law or civil right, or considered to infringe the rights
and/or privacy of any other person, will not be tolerated. Such is
expressed to include any conduct which encourages same.
Members involved in such activities will be warned/suspended at the
absolute discretion of AVN. AVN reserves the right to contact the Internet
Service Provider of the user regarding such conduct. This term also
applies to any postings which may be considered "retaliatory". Should you
believe that a member has offended this or other terms and conditions,
please contact a staff member.
2- You may only register one User
ID. Multiple IDs are not allowed. If a member is found to have registered
more than one account, their subsequent accounts will be deleted and they
will be given a warning.
3- We place a high value on
respect for other people here, which is why we are very intolerant of
people making personal attacks, therefore please be respectful of others
at all times. Occasionally, there will be conflicts that arise when people
voice opinions. Be courteous when disagreeing with others. It is possible
to disagree without being insulting.
4- Private communication between
moderators and administrators of the forum and the forum users is not to
be made public on these forums or by any other venue.
Warnings and suspensions are not to be discussed on the forum. Such
matters shall remain private between the admins and the user. Questions or
comments concerning warnings and suspensions will be conveyed through
e-mail or private messaging. Likewise, discussions regarding moderator
actions are not permitted on the forum. If you have questions regarding a
post or thread, please contact one of the staff members.
Spamming/Flooding is not permitted. Spam is considered to be
repetitive posting of the same text again and again or nonsensical posts
that have no substance and are often designed to annoy other forum users.
AVN staff reserve the right to delete such posts with or without prior
Redundant threads will be deleted. As a courtesy to others before
beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that
topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there
instead. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum
needlessly and many good ideas may be lost. Keep discussions about one
topic to one thread only.
Avoid using profanity. Using partial masking (such as asterisks or
punctuation marks) to bypass the profanity filter is prohibited and will
result in the same action as if the actual word had been typed.
Post constructively. Negative feedback can be very useful, provided
that it is presented in a civil, factual manner. Tell us what you don't
like and why and how you feel it could be improved. Posts that are
insulting and rude will be deleted, no matter how valid the ideas behind
them may be.
Posts are to be made in the relevant
forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before
posting. Users consistently posting to the wrong forum may be given a

any text/photos that are deemed to be personal attacks, harassment of any
kind, abusive or vulgar language, sexually oriented material, profanity,
pornography, threats, invasion of privacy, racially or otherwise

civil right. Avatars/Signatures that end up offending/affecting other
members, will be looked at on a case by case basis, and could be removed.
15- Bumping of old thread with
nonsense posts is strictly prohibited.
16- Use of inappropriate or
nonsense account names when registering to AVN is not acceptable, such
accounts will be deleted.
Use short, concise thread titles.
When posting a new thread, it's a good idea to use a short, yet
informative title, so it is not too long and other Visitors to the Forum
know what your thread is about.
18- Due to the nature of a forum,
ban times are usually determined by history & severity and at the
discretion of the admin team, and are incremental in most cases.
19- Postings made by members are
the opinions of members and are the responsibility of the author. AVN
assumes no responsibility for the content expressed and/or implied by
members. Members are totally responsible for content they post on the
forums, and AVN shall not be held liable. This includes opinions of
moderators and admins, whether designated as "Staff" or otherwise, when
not acting in their capacity as AVN Staff.
20- Staff members reserve the
right to delete any thread/post which they believe is violating the AVN
terms & guidelines at anytime with/without prior warning to the member.

mention members' real names or details without their full consent.
