What is the difference in entering as a guest and entering as a member?
Our site works on a membership system as we must be able to keep data files that contain your profile information and other information such as your Messages. Guests are free to browse the profiles of members, but in order to respond to ads using our emailing services, you must be registered with a valid e-mail address. You must also be a member in order to create and send messages and use the chat room and e-mail service.
Are profiles censored? Is there any limit to what I can put in my profile?
Yes. All member profiles, when they are originally created as well as when they are modified, must be approved by our webmasters. We reserve the right to refuse any profile or photograph that we feel is inappropriate for our community. Also, we ask that you do not put any personal information on your profile, including, but not limited to your home address, a personal beeper, cell or telephone number, e-mail address or personal web address. Any offenders of this rule will be banned from the site.
