Title: Registration Agreement archive
Post by: Apollia on Sun, July 20, 2014, 06:06:01 PM
This thread contains copies of the forum's Registration Agreement which must be agreed to when people register to post here.

They're just here for reference purposes, and new copies will be added to this thread if I change the Registration Agreement in the future.

Sorry, I'm not sure I have a copy of version 1.  I changed the Registration Agreement yesterday without thinking to save the original one.  I might have it somewhere but it would take a lot of digging through old files to find it.

(I, Apollia, the administrator, apologize for the following tedious legalese, most of which I didn't write myself.  I'm afraid to change it too much in case changing it messes up whatever legal protection this apparently gives me.  Very sorry about the harsh tone and the fact that this is here and necessary at all.)
