3.0 Terms of Service

The moderators of this forum will try hard to edit or remove reprehensible messages as soon as possible. However, it is impossible for them to review all the messages. You thus admit that all the messages posted on this forum express the sight and opinion of their respective authors and not those of the moderators or the Webmaster (except messages posted by them) and consequently, they cannot be held responsible of the discussions.

This forum uses cookies to store information on your computer. These cookies will not contain any personal information; they are only used to improve comfort while browsing. The address e-mail is only used in order to confirm the details of your registration as your password (and also to send you back your password if you forget it).

- Messages who promote - or evoke - illegal practices are prohibited.
- If you post informations which come from another site, look first if the site in question doesn't forbid it. Show the address of the site in question in order to respect the work of their administrators!
- Please post your messages only once. The repetitions are unpleasant and useless!
- Please make an effort on grammar and spelling. SMS-style language (ex: r u sk8ing?) is not advised!

Any message contravening the listing above will be edited or removed without additional notice or justification within deadlines which will depend on the availability of the moderators. Any abuse will involve the cancellation of the registration. Internet is neither an anonymous space, nor a space of no-right! We reserve ourselves the possibility of informing your access provider and/or the legal authorities of any malevolent behavior. An IP address of each poster is recorded in order to help us to make you respect these conditions.

4.0 Forum Rules

The following are the Forum Rules. In order to keep this clan in order and without any drama, these rules are necessary.


1. Spamming on the chat, forum, or any service provided by OLY and/or officially used by OLY, should not be spammed. Spamming the chat with images, or meaningless text will result in a warning. The second offense is a 48 hour ban. Spamming the forum with duplicate topics will result in a 72 hour ban. Knowingly and purposely trying to destabilize the clan through spamming will result in a 90 day IP ban.

2. No advertising of any nature is allowed on the forum and related properties. Advertising includes, personal websites, competing communities, and other related services. You can, however place such material in your signature in accordance with signature rules.

3. We are a non-drama clan and the only place we should even see the word drama in when we are talking about rules. This also includes the discussion of people. Talking behind the back of a user is frowned upon.

4. Do not attempt to log into another user account. Even if you want to help a user, the user having difficulty should contact Administrators for assistance.

5. Multiple forum accounts are not allowed. If you would like to change your username, please Private Message an admin.

6. The discussion of sensitive topics such as religion will not be permitted on the chat. They will, be permitted on the forum. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

7. Discussion about anything illegal, such as selling firearms or digital piracy is prohibited, as they violate the Terms of Service.

8. The discussion of explicit sexual content, in any form, is prohibited. If you are unsure what explicit is, please send the mod team a message!

9. Any discussion that encourages hate towards but not limited to any race, nationality, age, sexuality, sex, and religious affiliation is also prohibited.

4.1 Account Safety

1. Do not provide your session ID!

When giving a link, to the forum, a thread, etc, a session ID may be in the URL. This session ID (SID) in rare circumstances give the user who clicks it control of your account. Thus, please remove the SID before posting the link!

2. Never use a public proxy!

Using a public proxy, and a user with a similar IP to yours may hijack your account. We recommend you use a VPN such as Hotspot shield, or TOR (which is available on all major systems, including Windows, Mac, and Linux)

3. Don't tell your password - to anyone!

Please, do not tell your password to anyone. Especially if you are an administrator or moderator. If you ever forget your password, click "I forgot my password". If that doesn't work, please contact contact@theolympiansclan.com

4. Public computers, web cafes, etc.

If you are using a public network, never save your password. If you are at a web cafe with your own computer, please use HotSpot Shield or TOR for additional security.


5.0 Clan Rules

In order to assure stability in any organization, rules must exist. Some clan rules may differ from forum rules, but they will generally promote the same concept.

1) One Clan Only. In accordance with rule number 2, we have established this rule to prevent drama, and to assure our clan members are able to fulfill their duties within the clan. Whether other users from other clans may or may not participate in our website is up to the moderation team.

2) No Drama. Fights about any topic, will not be tolerated. Whether it be against another member, or staff.

3) Respect, respect goes a long way, to be a member of The Olympians, you must respect both your members and leaders.

4) Do your part! As a member, you have certain responsibilities that you must meet. We go more into depth about such responsibilities in 5.2.

5) Must not be in another clan to be eligible to join us. Being in more than one clan is time consuming, though if would like to be exempt from this rule, simply note this when applying to the clan on your application.
