Guidelines

Welcome to "This Is Who We Are..." otherwise known as "TIWWA".

Site Guidelines:

The rules for this site and its community exist to protect the community and our Members. We intend this to be a friendly place for Millennium fans to enjoy and return to as often as possible! If your post content, signatures, profile images, etc. are disruptive and impact our visitors' enjoyment of our community we may ask you to refrain from such actions or revoke your access to this community.

This community and website fully supported Fox's decision to release Millennium on public sale after a long campaign and we would urge all Members and Guests to support the sale and promotion of official DVD's, media and products at all times. We're sure genuine fans who appreciate the creativity and hard work of the production teams and companies will be supportive of this decision.

 

Please respect fellow Members at all times...

  • Please be advised and possibly surprised, that not everyone may have or share the same opinion as you do.
  • Please be aware however that abuse of any members or their opinions will not be tolerated by the Admin team.
  • Please note that the staff team consists of members known as Elders (Admin/Moderators) and The Old Man. Please do not confuse the Elder membership rank which is on the number of content submission/posts with the actual Elder Moderators /Admins who are the staff on this website.
  • Spam, abuse, flaming and pornography will NOT be tolerated on the "This Is Who We Are..." and any such post may be removed or edited by the Elder Staff Team.
  • You agree NOT to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws.
  • We don't discuss or debate religion or politics - You agree NOT to post discussion or debate on religious/anti religious or political subject matter except when directly related to a MillenniuM episode.

Creating second or more Member Accounts is not permitted, especially with a view to bypassing or circumventing being suspended or banned. Similarly, using another Members account is not permitted and will result in the accounts concerned being banned or deleted.

Off-Topic Content.

Please note that although we have an off-topic area where Members are able to discuss and share opinions on a large range of non-Millennium related issues and subjects, we no longer allow posting or discussion on Religion, Religious Themes, Politics, and Political Themes. Discussion on a Millennium episodes' directly related religious themes is of course permitted. In essence, Members should refrain and not post religious or political opinions. This decision is based on the successful removal of arguments and argumentative debates which sometimes reached disruptive level in the early days of the community, the removal of which has seen a friendly and respected community haven for over 10 years. There are many alternative outlets and platforms available on the internet and social media for such discussion.

Millennium DVD and Media Policy.

Millennium has now been released onto DVD format and is available on streaming websites. This community message board, its host and also participating websites at TIWWA officially support the decision to release Millennium to the public, to promote its sale/purchase where ever possible. As a result existing forums which previously provided a discussion platform for obtaining downloadable episodes and episodes on recordable DVD, VCD, SVCD and other non-official Fox un-authorised non-retail versions/formats were closed in support of the official product. We fully support Fox's decision to release Millennium on public sale and would urge Members and Guests to support the sale of the official DVD's, products and streaming. We're sure fans will be supportive of this decision which applies to all copyrighted content.

Posts, Topics and Replies relating to DVD 'rips' and conversions to non-official variations will be deemed contrary to This Is Who We Are's policy. Any such posts will be removed and/or edited and the person responsible issued with an increased warning level or a possible ban.

Inappropriate and off-topic posts posted in the incorrect areas will be moderated/deleted/moved as appropriate. Similarly short, one or two word posts, also posts that contain only emoticons should not be posted. Repeat offenders will be warned and could be banned from using the site.

Breaking any of the above policies and guidelines will make your account subject to immediate banning, or your message/content deleted, edited or moved. Further, the community moderators may contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and/or the proper authorities based upon the severity of your posts.

By Registering, you agree to be bound by these conditions.
