Exclamation

Freedom of Speech:

Although the constitution of the United States guarantees that “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech”, Cyphos.com is not Congress. Freedom of speech rights do not extend to this privately owned website. The TOS/Guidelines of this website governs the behaviors and activities of the members. If you choose not to follow the guidelines agreed to during registration, the result will render a disabling of your account.

The purpose of this site is to provide an environment where aquarists from beginner to advanced may find and share reliable information and quality advice regarding all aspects of Cyphotilapia care. Our community was created and intended to provide a venue for members to share and discuss topics relative to Cyphotilapia in a family-oriented atmosphere. It was not created nor intended as a platform to discuss and debate current events, political or religious ideology. Unfortunately, the discussion of subjects such as politics, religion and current events only end up fostering animosity among members and weakening the community that exists on this site. As such, posts of this nature will be removed from our forum.


Debates:

We promote the idea of lively debate. This means you are free to disagree with anyone on any type of subject matter as long as your criticism is constructive and polite.


Personal Attacks:

Our first priority is to the members that have come here because of the flame-free atmosphere we provide. There is a zero-tolerance policy here against personal attacks. We will not tolerate anyone insulting another individual's opinion nor name calling and will BAN repeat offenders.


Foul Language:

Contrary to popular belief, this is not a public board. We are all guests here. Cyphos.com has the right to edit posts that violate our forum guidelines or remove members at any time. Nothing should ever be posted here that you would not say in front of a crowd of strangers. Don't post anything distasteful or anything you feel might offend someone else. PG-13 type language in ALL forums, including Off -Topic.

As many of you know, in addition to the discussions we have for our own benefit, we also present a showcase to the lurkers and fence-sitters. We do have a word filter which will catch a few foul terms, but it is not the solution nor should it be the solution.

Using faintly disguised obscenities with creative or phonetic spelling basically shows disrespect. We are here voluntarily, including the moderators and the forum admins, because we are trying to maintain a forum worthy of the tradition started on Cyphos.com. Please show your appreciation for the venue it provides.

If it is not deliberate disrespect for the others, then it could be the inability to express a thought without spicing it indiscriminately with foul language. While strong words have their place and time, a public forum in which polite conduct has been requested is not the time or the place for them.


Commercial Advertisements:

In addition to restricting non-sponsored commercial posts in our Buy, Sell or Trade forum... we do not allow non-sponsored commercial advertisements of any kind in the forum, up to and including posts, signatures, etc.


User and Nonuser Content:

All content on Cyphos.com, including but not limited to graphics, images, text, flash files, executable files, html and other web files, trademarks, logos, slogans are the property of Cyphos.com and is protected in the U.S. and internationally under trademark, copyright, and other intellectual property laws such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Reproduction of this material is expressly prohibited unless written permission has been granted by Cyphos.com Administration, or full credit and ownership information with link to original content is conspicuously provided with the reproduction. All third party content is the property of the third parties who licensed that content, and is used by Cyphos.com subject to license, or subject to the fair use provisions of U.S. copyright or trademark law. These terms extend to all users including registered and unregistered.


Post Counts:

Post counts on Cyphos.com are in place only to acknowledge contributions made by our members. We are in no way biased to the amount of posts our members make. Please do not misinterpret post counts for anything other than what they are intended.


Thank You,
Mark

This post has reminded me of how far this site has come back from the dead under Greg's ownership. We've got a really good core group of members who regularily contribute and that core group is growing! I see new members all the time. The knowledge level on this site is impressive.

By design, our focus in somewhat narrow: Cyphos. That's OK, Cyphos are magnificent and they, and trophs, are the rare species that can carry a forum.

I think the best days are still ahead for this site. Great job Greg! I hope fish sales from this site help make it worth while for you.

Cheers,
Russ

Thanks Russ, its not about money with this site, these days everyone says its all going to FB, might be true to an extent, but to me a forum is still a great tool, community to have and even though it can drain time and money I get rewarded many times over here with being around such great people, members. I love the site and I honestly feel we have the best group, community of any site I have ever seen. Selfless, knowledgeable, genuine people, my main objectives for Dec are to get the upgrades done and my dogs surgery. Supposed to be 3 weeks of hell recovery. If any time if left, maybe see the family.

I couldn't agree more with you guys, there's alot, and I mean ALOT of great people on this forum! When I log on here I feel like I'm sitting around the coffee shop or the kitchen table or something chewing the fat with buddies. (new and old) I don't think you're going to find that just anywhere, this is a special place to go and talk to friends without feeling stupid because someone who only raises flowerhorns or discus (for examples only) tells you how terrible you're raising your cyphos or other Africans. Or you have somebody who doesn't know his left from his right scolding you because he doesn't believe YOU know what kind of fish you're keeping. lol
The combined knowledge of the members of this site as well as the general desire to help is astounding! I can't say it enough...we have an awesome group of folks here!
We should all be greatful to have such a special place available!
