Welcome to the PIGSwap® Community Rules & Regulations Page
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these rules and regulations. PIGSwap is a community, and we rely on you to keep this community friendly and enjoyable by following these rules.
If you feel that another member’s post or activity has violated these rules and would like to bring it to our attention, you may contact us at PIGSwap.com/contact. Although PIGSwap tries to evaluate all reports regarding misuse of its services, it does not promise to do so, and it reserves the right to take any action or no action at all in response to such reports.
I. Forum and Blog Posting Regulations
A – Pornographic or Sexual Material is Permissable.
Sexually explicit discussions are acceptable in our community. Sexually explicit content and links to such content are not prohibited. Images of sexual nature, including nudes, selfies, images of sexual poses and conduct may be posted in forums, with some basic rules and regulations:
PIGSwap.com RULES & REGULATIONS
- No images or videos that contain blood or scat.
- Images or videos that contain bestiality or animals in a sexual nature will not be permitted.
- Any images or videos that highlight violence, or portray guns in a manner that goes against societal norms.
- There will be no tolerance of anyone posting images or videos that portray children of any age. All images posted must be of adults over 18 years of age. Anyone who posts images of children will have their accounts terminated and their information will be reported to the authorities.
Any images that are considered illegal, immoral, obscene, or vulgar, will be removed at the sole discretion of the Site owners per our Terms and Condition.
B – No Profanity
The use of profanity is strictly prohibited, whether in titles, forums, blog posts, or anywhere else on PIGSwap.
C – Posting Email Addresses, Websites and Phone Numbers in Forum Threads.
Users may not post URLs in any form until they have made at least 10 legitimate posts and have been with us for more than 7 days (unless member is posting in our Marketplace Forums–see Rule V below).
After you have made 10 legitimate posts, you may post websites within posts to direct other users to valuable resources (more on this later).
If you want to include your email address, website, or phone number for people to contact you, please put this information in your private messages only. PIGSwap reserves the right to remove any email address, website or phone number that has been placed in your profile, our message posts as a means of contact, except in advertisement posts placed in our Marketplace. In addition, do not disclose any personal information that you do not wish others to know for your own safety and security.
D – No FAO (for the attention of) or Goodbye Posts.
Personal discussions or “for the attention of” posts are prohibited. Please use the private message feature, chat, or email for this purpose. In addition, please refrain from “Goodbye Forum” posts in forum threads. These posts may be deleted by the forum or Site administrators.
E – No Impersonations.
Do not impersonate or attempt to impersonate other forum members, moderators, or administrators. In addition, do not post email addresses, standard addresses, ICQ and other messaging client numbers, or phone numbers which are not your own. The creation or use of fake user accounts is strictly prohibited.
F – One account per user, please.
G – No Abusive Behavior.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not post or otherwise transmit (including through the PIGSwap private messaging system) any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, abusive, hateful, harassing, obscene, sexually explicit, threatening, invasive of a person’s privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR INCLUDES POSTING IN ALL CAPS! It is bad netiquette, and is flat out rude.
H – Do Not Flame or Troll
Flaming, flame-baiting, and trolling are not allowed anywhere on this site, including in posts, signatures, and private messages. Flaming is directly insulting another member, flame-baiting is making a comment with the intention of getting a flame as a response, and trolling involves starting arguments or upsetting people by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
I – Remember – All Members are Equals
Treat all PIGSwap members equally, whether they are an admin, a moderator, or an average member. Do not single a member out because they have a low postcount or a low status on the site. In addition, do not personally attack members who violate these rules. Instead, report the member or post to a moderator or admin.
J – Respect the Staff
If a staff member tells you to stop doing something, stop. Never attack the staff directly. If you disagree with any action taken by a staff member, please contact the administrator privately.
K – No Email Harvesting
Harvesting email addresses from our site is strictly prohibited. Do not harvest email addresses from PIGSwap users.
L – No Private Message SPAM
Users with basic PIGSwap memberships may only send private messages to their contacts. PIGSwap PAID members may send private messages to any member, but these private messages may not contain advertisements or solicitations.
M – No Poaching or Polling
Diverting our members to competitor forums or websites is strictly forbidden. Polling our members to gather information to be used on a competing website, course, podcast, book, blog post or video is strictly forbidden.
N – No Affiliate Marketing
No form of affiliate marketing is allowed on PIGSwap. That means no posting affiliate links in messages, in your signature, in blog posts, or on your profile. Hiding affiliate links through services that provide short urls is also forbidden.
O – Posting Images in Threads.
Screenshots, photographs, and other images that you want to embed in your post must be no larger than 1280 x 960 pixels. Larger images may be deleted, resized, or changed to a link.
P – Stay On-Topic
Posts in a particular forum need to stay on-topic. If you want to talk about something that is drastically removed from the topic of a forum, please create a new topic. Posts that are unrelated to real estate must be placed in the off-topic forum.
Q – No Religious or Political Postings
Religious statements and threads on the topic of religion are not permitted on PIGSwap. Please do not use a religious quote in your signature, or anywhere else on the site. Use of this adult site to promote any kind of religion is not permitted. Posting any images or videos that may be considered objectionable due to its religious content or message may be deleted and your account may be terminated without additional notice if you have been previously warned, per our terms and conditions.
Political threads not permitted on PIGSwap. Any post or thread regarding politics will be removed. PIGSwap reserves the right to edit any post or thread that may contain political commentary. Posting any images or videos that may be considered objectionable due to its political content or message may be deleted and your account may be terminated without additional notice if you have been previously warned, per our terms and conditions.
PIGSwap is an adult social network, not a forum for religious or political debates, discussions, or proselytizing.
R – NO SPAMMING
Spam is strictly prohibited on PIGSwap. Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, whether on or off-topic. Examples include: advertisements that are not located in the Marketplace Forums, empty posts, posts with few words that have no relation to the current thread, promotion of your website or product in any thread other than the classifieds, and those posts that state they are Spam, either to annoy or to increase a member’s post count. Posting the same message across several threads is also considered Spam, as is filling your post with keywords with the goal of attracting searchers (keyword stuffing).
S – Off-Limits Ad & Solicitation Types
Posts or messages including chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any kind of Ponzi scheme are not allowed on our site. Promoting or marketing properties that you have no contractual or ownership interest in is also strictly prohibited.
T – No Advertising or Promotions Outside the PIGSwap Marketplace.
PIGSwap may consider looking for or offering deals, looking for or offering loans, looking for or offering to be a cash buyer, looking for or offering services or any mention of your company, company name or what your company does to be advertising. Responding to another user’s advertisement with an advertisement for different products or services is strictly prohibited. Do not post any variation of “PM me for more information.” If you have information to share, post it in the forums. We have many read-only members who can also benefit from your information.
II – Member User Names, Signatures, Avatars, and Profile Information.
A – Profile Name
The name you enter for your first and last name MUST be your actual name, which will be verifiable via your credit card — pseudonyms or fake names are not allowed. Your account profile name may be a nickname. Members may not use website URLs or email addresses as their profile link name, and profile names may not contain references to drugs or any other inappropriate material.
B – Avatars & Profile Images
Member avatars (profile photos) exist so our users can share their personalities or personal images of themselves. Avatars may not be used for promotional purposes. This means no ads and no company logos or text in the images may be permitted. In addition, users are strictly prohibited from using the following as an avatar:
- Images depicting any person other than yourself
- Images you are not authorized to use under copyright
- Images that make a political or religious statement
- Sexually explicit images may be allowed
Avatars and profile images that are deemed offensive, insulting, or harmful to either a PIGSwap member, or its staff, are strictly prohibited. PIGSwap may remove any avatar or profile image at any time for any reason per our discretion.
III – LINK MODIFICATION BY ADMINISTRATORS
PIGSwap administrators may, at their discretion, modify any link contained within our forums. These modified links may contain codes allowing PIGSwap to profit for referred traffic.
IV – USE OF FORUM EMAIL & PRIVATE MESSAGING
Forum administrators reserve the right to periodically scan and review the forum email and private messages database in search of abuse.
Abuse of the forum email or private messaging systems may result in immediate removal from PIGSwap, and PIGSwap has the right (but not the obligation) to pursue all available remedies to address such abuse.
V – OFFICIAL FORUM EMAIL & PRIVATE MESSAGES
VI – REMOVAL OF CONTENT, BANNING, SUSPENSION, TERMINATION
Our forums and blog discussions are semi-moderated, and moderators or administrators may close or delete a thread at any time and for any reason. Once a topic is closed, members are not allowed to start a new thread with the same topic. All questions or remarks regarding closed or deleted threads must be e-mailed privately to the Forum.
It is your responsibility to maintain a current, valid email address in your registration information so that our moderators can contact you in the event of a policy violation, though no such contact by PIGSwap is required.
If any of your PIGSwap privileges have been revoked and you have questions about why, or what, if anything, you can do to restore them, please email the forum administrator.
PIGSwap is a dynamic online community, and PIGSwap reserves the right to change or alter these rules at any time.
