Alert to the new "Terms of Use"

I just had to accept this while I was logging in to this afternoon:

I wonder if we're 'submitting' by putting on this forum or do they mean 'submitting' like for a contest? If it's contest, I get that...if it's anything posted on the forum, that would (to me) be a big no no.....?

Hi all,

Just a quick note to reassure that section has been there since 2001 and remains unchanged. It is fairly standard across most websites. I generally check others to do a comparison from time to time and did so recently last week. I pulled it into a document (with links to all the other sites) for another member to see and would be happy to share it with you. Just drop me an email ( and let me know if you prefer it as a Microsoft Word doc or pdf file.

I do apologize for the alarm. I had to accept them again as well. It seems that the setting is such that anytime a change is made on the page that it requests you to again accept the terms of use. I read through again and then had to check with Mollee to find out what was changed. She went in and fixed a typo that was found and then added some bullet points (the content itself was unchanged -- just tried to make it easier to read.)

I can assure you that it has been our long standing policy for any member images that we have used to contact that member and request permission for use. Additionally, some members have contacted us - wishing to have their image or other media published. We have a permission for use form that we send, have signed, and then sent back to to keep on file.

HTH and again - if you would like to see how we compare to others drop me a note!
