Updated TOS?

Post by Conquered Territories on Mon Oct 12, 2009 1:48 am

There has been a lot of confusion about some of the items in the Terms Of Service. It is agreed that it needs an updating. Watch for an announcement coming soon regarding rule updates and be responsible for their knowing their contents.

~FireFight News

I see there has been a lot of commotion and would like to help. I worked on a new TOS for the site a while back and would like to know if you all would accept it? I purely did it for the site and because of the outdated one was in desperate need of an update. I would like to think that it covers every aspect of the game, but there is always an new issue or issues that emerges . I don't know if you guys are currently working on one or what, but I have put my time in to complete a new TOS. I will post it for review.

Pretty tight!

One thing though(maybe i'm getting lost in the lawyer speak):

The usage of actions which disable advertisements is prohibited. It is inconsequential if the advertisement is blocked on purpose or is generally blocked through a pop-up-blocker, text based browser or other similar function

Most web browsers come pre-packed with popup blockers now. Seems like an unfair rule for those that do not fully understand the browser they are using. Just a thought.
