Smile Net is directed to people who are at least 9 years old or older. For those younger than 9, although we assume that they have asked for permission from their parents or guardian during registration, for their own safety, they have no access to the ChatBox and the Private Message (PM) system.

If you are the parent or guardian of the child younger than 9 years old, we advice you to read the Privacy Policy located at the bottom of this page. If you have further questions, feel free to contact the site owner.

Our Officers reserve the right to edit, move, or delete any post without warning or reason. Posts that criticize members, will be edited and/or deleted. Posts that are posted in the wrong forum topic will be moved to the proper area or deleted without warning. Posts that contain inflammatory remarks, reference to violent acts, or that contain violations of the policies of Smile Net contained in the Rules and Regulations, will be deleted. Posts referencing any films/tv programs that are not suitable for General Viewing are not permitted. Posts that lack content and/or considered spam will be deleted. If you repeatedly start posts in an inappropriate section, spam the forums, or post improper content, then your posting privileges will be suspended and your account may be expelled.

Posting Rules

All of the Policies and Guidelines cover all areas of Smile Net Forums, whether it be the forums and the member profiles.

Advertising Personal Sites/Forums: Please do not advertise external sites or forums within Smile Net , without the site owner's permission. We do not have a problem with other sites; however, we cannot monitor the activities of other sites. Any link to any external site will be deleted unless it has been previously approved by the site owner.

Inappropriate Content/Material: Posts or Member profiles that contain, or make reference to, race, ethnic origin, religious belief, or orientational preference are not appropriate for this site. Also, posts containing foul language, or making reference to nudity, violence, or drug and alcohol use (or any other illegal substance), are not allowed within Smile Net . Officers will edit or delete any item not adhering to this rule immediately, and will take appropriate action against the member, according to the severity of the offense.

Flaming: This is when a user intentionally disrupts a thread by posting inaccurate, inflammatory, or hateful comments. This is usually done with the desire to get a heated reaction from other posters. Keep in mind that this is a family-oriented and kid-friendly site, and our forums are not meant for instigating arguments. Whereas members may have a difference in opinion, be sure to keep fighting to a minimum.

Spamming: Spamming can be considered multiple things; but overall, spam is any post that does not follow or contribute to the subject matter of the original topic. We do not tolerate spamming on Smile Net.

Signatures: Signatures may be no larger than 230 pixels high by 530 pixels wide. This rule is in place to show consideration to others while using the forums. If your signature exceeds 230 pixels in height, an officer will send you a private message to ask you to resize your image. If you see this reminder, decrease your signature size immediately. Signature's MUST NOT include any content that is not not appropriate for this site. Also, signatures containing reference to nudity, violence, or drug and alcohol use (or any other illegal substance), are not allowed within the signature.
Avatars: Avatars cannot be larger than 230 pixels by 340 pixels. If your avatar is bigger that the suggested size,you must change your image's size ASAP.
Along with, avatars MUST NOT include any content that is not not appropriate for this site. Avatars containing reference to nudity, violence, or drug and alcohol use (or any other illegal substance), are not allowed within the avatar.
Impersonation of Other Members: Creating accounts that use similar, or existing, member names in order to slander existing members, or cause misconceptions towards another member, is not allowed. This behavior will quickly lead to being suspended from Smile Net .

Sharing and Multiple Accounts: Members are only allowed to have one account. If you have more than one account, your additional accounts will be suspended indefinitely. Multiple members of a single household are encouraged to each have their own account. That way you may each state your own opinion freely. Do not let others on your account ever. If they do something that is against the rules, your account could be suspended.

The Officers: The officers check all content for its compliance with the Policies and Guidelines and dispense disciplinary action at their sole discretion but always with the approval and consent of the site owner. If you feel your punishment is harsh, you may appeal to the officer who gave you the warning, or contact the site owner. Public appeals on the forums are not tolerated and may result in further disciplinary action.

If you see a post of a questionable nature, please notify an officer by clicking on the “Report” button included in each post. Please include a brief explanation of why you believe the item needs attention. Please do NOT take matters into your own hands by replying to the message, or PMing the author to scold them yourself. Remember - we want a safe and happy environment for all of our members and guests.
