These terms of service and rules are not default, generic, stock terms of service you'll see copied across the millions of sites and forums on the internet. They've been specifically and manually created by the moderation team at Nerd Work. Its important you understand that these terms and rules are enforced, often strictly, every day by the Nerd Work staff and that we haven't written these rules just for the sake of it, we’ve written them because they're the guidelines that we, the staff, look to when performing our duties. As such you should not casually dismiss these terms and rules as simply being the same generic rules you've agreed to on countless other sites. Theyre not. You ignore this fact at your own peril.
Understanding our terms of service and rules
These are the terms and conditions that apply to your use of any current and future services offered by Nerd Work and any associated websites. These terms are available for perusal without registration, when you register, as well as when you perform certain actions on the site (such as posting files, images or comments) where you are explicitly prompted to acknowledge that you have read and understood these rules each time. If you signal your acknowledgement without actually reading through these terms and conditions you do so at your own risk. Ignorance of our rules is not an excuse and we will take you at your word when you click the ‘I understand’ or ‘I agree’ boxes when registering or performing actions on these sites that you have actually read and understood these rules. As such, any breach of these rules by yourself will have been done with your explicit understanding of our rules and ergo will be entirely your own fault, and not ours. We have very little respect for people who claim they did not know our rules. It’s not an excuse and simply confirms the fact that when you clicked those I agree or I understand boxes that you infact did not agree, or did not understand, and ergo, were lying. Once again, thats your fault and not ours.
We reserve the right to change these Terms of Service at any time. It is the sole responsibility of members to keep up-to-date with the terms of service. Major amendments to the rules will be clearly announced on Nerd Work and on the forums.
If you are struggling to understand our terms of service or rules and require further clarification a member of staff will be happy to help. You can either contact users in the Moderator or Admin member group or use the Contact Us links available on the sites.
