Board Guidelines, Disclaimer, Liability, Legal Statements

.
In addition to instructions for registration, this forum contains announcements from the board administrator.

If you tried to register with this message board and you were BANNED, it is because you are in a country that is known for excessive spamming. Several countries have been banned, including the Philippines, India, Pakistan, most areas of Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Vietnam, and a few others. I'm sorry, but we cannot un-ban a specific IP address that is on our ban list. Please understand this usually has nothing to do with you as an individual; it has to do with excessive spamming coming from the country that you are in.

Accounts sometimes get de-activated when you change your password. If your account gets de-activated, send an email to the administrator: webmaster (at) archwired (dot) com. Include your username. The admin can reset your password and/or re-activate your account.

ATTENTION NEW MEMBERS: Do not post full-face photos or personal contact information on this website. We have had problems with people re-posting members' photos on fetish websites. Please only post photos of your teeth, not your whole face. Keep your email and your personal information private. If you add a website to your profile that contains a photo of your face or your real name, we will delete the website from your profile. Thank you.

New Members: You must make a post within 12 HOURS of registering, or your account will be deleted. In other words, don't sign up unless you plan to actively participate in the message board IMMEDIATELY. This is necessary to keep out spammers and lurkers with bad intentions. Of course, you can read most forums on the board without registering. We just ask that if you do register, please plan to post a message within 12 hours so that we know that your registration is not a "junk" or "spam" registration.

NOTE: Fetish PMs, emails, and IMs will NOT be tolerated on this board. Members will report you and you will be banned. Lifting photos or URLs to photos from this website's members for fetish or pornographic purposes is against copyright and is reason for immediate ban.

Contact the site admin at: webmaster (at) archwired (dot) com. Journalists - you must contact the webmaster of this site before soliciting here.

f. Posts that cause a distraction to the purpose and mission of ArchWired.com and the Metal Mouth Message Board will be removed or closed.

g. Treatment options for orthodontics vary around the world, here at ArchWired.com we support such discussions as long as they do not become solicitations, aggressive, or hurtful to others. If this happens the thread or post will be closed by the moderators immediately without further discussion.

h. We discourage members from from making their email addresses visible in their profiles, or from posting personal and vital information which may identify them, including photos of their full face or body.
