Considering the real-time nature of the Crochetville forum, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of all posted messages and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and we are not responsible for the contents of any message. All messages posted express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Crochetville.
Any user who feels that a posted message violates Crochetville's guidelines or is otherwise objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by Private Message (AmyS). We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary or appropriate. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. Crochetville's Forum Guidelines also apply to your use of the Crochetville forum.
Crochetville reserves the right to monitor any member's transmissions when deemed necessary for providing proper service, and/or to protect the rights and property of Crochetville, or in order to comply with the law.
When you register as a member you will create a user name and password; you must be at least 13 years of age to register an account. The user name selected must be unique and acceptable to Crochetville. Each member may only have one member name. All members agree to keep their password secret as it is the most important security measure on the internet. When other people know it, you are subject to their abusing your registration. You will be held liable for all misuse by others. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. Crochetville reserves the right to delete or refuse the registration of any account at any time for any or no reason.
Please note that chain letters, pyramid schemes, petitions, and the solicitation of other members to join or become members of any commercial online service or other organization is also prohibited on Crochetville. You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use Crochetville to post any material which is false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise objectionable or violative of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or you otherwise have the legal right to post such material. You also agree to be respectful of Crochetville and its staff and other posters.

You acknowledge that Crochetville does not delete member accounts upon request. Instead, Crochetville will deactivate a member’s account upon request. Upon deactivation, Crochetville will remove: 1) a member’s signature; 2) all publicly-viewable information from the member’s profile; 3) the member’s ability to send/receive private messages or email/messages sent through the forum software to/from other members; and 4) the member’s ability to sign on to the Crochetville user account. Crochetville will not delete posts for a member prior to deactivating an account. Instead, the member has the option to delete their own posts prior to submitting a request for account deactivation. To request an account be deactivated, please use our Contact Us form. Be sure to include your Crochetville username and the reason you want your account to be deactivated. If you have used all or part of your actual name in your username, you may also request we change your username prior to deactivating your account. Otherwise, no change will be made to your username.
Crochetville reserves the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the following limited circumstances: (1) we have your consent to share the information, (2) we need to seek the assistance of the abuse department at your ISP [any IP address you've used to connect to Crochetville] to stop disruptions you are causing to our forum, (3) in response to subpoenas, court orders or legal process including in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you, or (4) the health or well-being of you or another member is threatened.
