    <p>Here at the BaconForum Community, we have a set of rules and guidelines that you are expected to adhere to if you wish to have a problem-free, enriching experience being a part of our great community. By registering an account and/or contributing content to this community, you agree to these terms and conditions of service.</p>
    <p>Please be sure to read all of our posting guidelines and our stickies, as well as these guidelines as ignorance is not a valid defense.</p>
    <p><h2>1. No excessive usage of profanity</h2></p>
    <p>While we have no objection to sharing your opinions and debating a topic - in fact, we encourage it - with other members of this community, we do not tolerate any excessive profanity whatsoever.</p>
    <p>A minor or infrequent usage of profanity is permitted. If you are found to be using profanity frequently, your posts will be deemed of a flaming nature and you will be dealt with accordingly.</p>
    <p>Since the measure of excessive usage is ultimately decided by the Administration on a case by case basis, you will receive ample warning prior to being banned due to the infringement of this clause.</p>
    <p><h2>2. No racism, discrimination, threats or personal attacks of any kind are permitted.</h2></p>
    <p>This is a friendly community and as such you are expected to be courteous and follow general posting etiquette. There are times when you may not agree with someone, or you've had a bad day and that's fine, we all have those days. But please, for your own benefit, leave your problems off BaconForum. Doing so will ensure that the BaconForum Community is a welcoming, friendly one.</p>
    <p><h2>3. No spamming is permitted, whatsoever.</h2></p>
    <p>Spam is posting any content that is not within the topic of discussion, or does not contribute anything to the forums - off topic OR on topic. The definition of spam used by this community is determined by the Administration and is not open to discussion.</p>
    <p><h2>4. No flaming, inciting hatred or instigating flame bait is permitted.</h2></p>
    <p>This is a friendly community and as such you are expected to be courteous and follow general posting etiquette.</p>
    <p>In general, any parties involved in a flame-fest - whether they be the instigator or the flamer, will be dealt with accordingly. The best way to stay out of trouble, with regards to flame-fests, is to not join in.</p>
    <p><h2>5. No selling of products or services, unless approved by a member of the administration.</h2></p>
    <p><h2>6. Avatars and signatures need to be of a reasonable size. Abuse of any of these privileges will result in revocation of them.</h2></p>
    The maximum dimensions for avatars are: 102x102 pixels.<br />
    The maximum file size for avatars is 40 KB.<br />
    The maximum TOTAL dimensions for signatures are: 794x154 pixels.<br />
    <h3>Signature Rules and Guidelines:</h3>
    <ul><li>You can link to your homepage or favorite site, but you can’t use it for advertising</li>
    <li>Limit your signatures to several lines.</li>
    <li>Please keep the coloured text to a minimum (and your signature readable).</li>
    <li>Keep your signature clean - all images should be safe for work.</li>
    <li>Please make sure your signature adheres to the other rules and guidelines found on this page</li>
    <li>We reserve the right to edit signatures that we consider (but not limited to): too big, flashy or inappropriate.</li></ul></p>
    <p><h2>9. No advertising.</h2></p>
    <p>Advertising of any form is completely prohibited.</p>
    <p>The BaconForum Community Staff reserve the right to read any messages usually deemed private if the situation calls for it (for example, if the contents is reported) and reserve the right to edit or delete any content provided by anyone on BaconForum.com.</p>
    <p>The above stated are not absolute. They are guidelines for those wanting to ensure that their stay here is a pleasant one.</p>
    <p><h2>Disclaimer:</h2>The views, opinions, or anything thereof discussed on this site and forums are by no means the views, opinions, or anything thereof supported by the BaconForum Staff.

I know :)
I'm just trying to help improve ;)
And it is appreciated! With Bacon Forum in its infancy the input from all community members is vital so we know what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong (not that you can ever do anything wrong when it comes to bacon :p).
