Usage of these forums are subject to the general Comic Collector Live Terms and Conditions
and the Forum Rules and Policies as specified here. These policies are meant as clarification of Comic Collector Live policies for the forums and do not change the effect of the terms and conditions.

Any user that feels a message should be removed is encouraged to send a private message to any member of the CCL Employee or Administration groups or contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If we determine that removal of the message or other action is necessary, we will do so.
The Comic Book Talk, Comic Book Collecting and The Water Cooler sections of the message board are moderated by members chosen by CCL. These members can be identified by the label 'Moderator'. It is their responsibility to make sure, where possible, that discussion remains on topic and within the rules stated on this page.
CCL Employees and members of Administration have moderator powers throughout the forums.
This site shall be governed by the laws of the United States. Anything which may be construed as illegal activity will be reported to authorities, along with any details held regarding the members involved.
Further, by using this forum:
You agree not to use this forum to violate laws, incite illegal activity or engage in conspiracy to commit crimes.
You agree not to post copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright owner.
You agree not to post any material which is invasive of a person's privacy, defamatory, abusive, threatening or intended to terrorize, intimidate or harass.
You should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning (see policing below).
You are asked to not act as "back seat moderator". If you notice an issue which contradicts something in the forum rules you are welcome to bring it to the attention of a ComicCollectorLive.com Moderator, Forum Administrator, or anyone in Administration. Only do this if an Moderator or Forum Administrator has not responded to the questionable post within 6 hours. Please do not take it upon yourself to act as an Moderator.
You should remember this board is aimed at a general audience. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning (see policing below).
Moderators, Forum Administrators, or Administration reserves the right to edit or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in this policy is up to the them and not you. However, if you feel that a post should be edited/modified and has not been done so within 6 hours of the initial posting, please contact an Moderator, Forum Administrator, or Administration.
Moderators, Forum Administrators, or Administration may edit, change or delete any post that violates the rules on this page. Administration reserves the right to prevent access to members or revoke membership at any time. Customarily, a reason behind such decisions made by CCL Employees, Administration or Moderators will be provided.
Moderators, Forum Administrators, or Administration will look at available options before locking a topic. When locking a topic, moderators should provide a reason for doing so. A member of Administraion will review locked topics and will make a final decision.
Moderators, Forum Administrators, or Administration will edit posts using their own discretion in the following instances:
- Where a post is in breach of the forum rules and guidelines.
- Where the post formatting has failed to a point where it severely affects the ability to read the topic.
In cases where a post is in breach of the forum rules and guidelines, a member of Administration will be informed and the member may be suspended from the forum until the situation is reviewed.
In the case of formatting corrections, changes should be minimal and not alter or affect the meaning of the post if possible, in which case moderators should contact the member via private message to let them know that the post has been edited and the reasons why.
The above forum rules where applicable also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (see policing below) and/or the revocation of private messaging.Policing
ComicCollectorLive.com operates a two strike policy. You will be warned a maximum of two times for any and all offences in a two month period. If the need arises for a third warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days. Repeated offenses will result in the permanent deactivation of your account with no refunds (if applicable) given.
Arguing with Moderators, Forum Administrators or Administration after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed two strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.
If you feel you have been unfairly warned, you are welcome to contact Steve or Joe, their decision is final.
Any attempt to circumvent a temporary suspension will lead to that suspension being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-suspended username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, or registering a new e-mail account to evade an e-mail ban.
An exception to the two strike rule applies when you contact a Moderator, Forum Administrator, or Administration personally (via any method) and post insulting, indecent or vulgar material. You may be subject to an immediate and permanent suspension.
Permanent suspensions are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. ComicCollectorLive.com may choose to live a permanent ban but would be considered an exception to the rule.
