Allombo Rules

Expected General Behaviour (extracted from our Terms/Disclaimer to which you indicate you agree to in your use of this site)

You agree to behave to the standard that the community here expects. This means no abusive behaviour toward other members, no racism, no sexist behaviour, no trolling behaviour (behaviour to deliberately bait other members), no negative behaviour to the site itself. Should you behave in a way that the community itself or management deem unfit your account can and will be deleted without notice. We are more than reasonable, and we have very broad tolerance both from management perspective and the community, but should you cross the line then you will be removed. This might sound harsh but we have only ever had to ban a few accounts. At the end of the day, behave like you would in ordinary public and you will be warmly accepted here. Community reporting tool - we operate a system whereby members are able to report troublesome profiles, providing a reason for this reporting. Through sophisticated algorithms looking both at the reporting and reported parties, our system makes a decision as to whether to ignore the report, warn the reportee or ban the account. The decision of this system is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Content rules that apply to one area of apply to all. For example, taboo talk is not allowed it chat, therefore it is not allowed anywhere, including usernames, status, photos, etc. operates smoothly by utilising the volunteer services of moderators. These moderators are members just like you and donate their time to keep this place a happy and thriving community. Any derogatory comments toward or harassment of moderators is a breach of our rules and may result in your account being gagged (silenced) or deleted.

Rules relating to judging of members and or content posted

Members are not permitted to call out (in blogs, status, forum, noticeboard, PM or anywhere else on the site) other members if they suspect:

  • That the member is not genuine or "fake"
  • That a photo or video is a "web pic" or in other words a photo lifted from another web site and posted here

In both these cases, if you suspect an image as being lifted from elsewhere on the web or a profile as being not a legitimate user, please notify a moderator (user with the black star badge) or report the image or profile with the report button. Moderators and admin staff will review the image and or account and make a determination of it's legitimacy.

Please note it is NOT against the rules for users to post content here that they have also posted also on other web sites.
