Opposed to many other forae its not user uniformity in opinion were after. We try to provide a platform as diverse as possible where people of all (political)opinion can exchange thoughts and can enjoy our common interest in history..whether NATO or Warschaupact , Allied or Axis ..its all good..there's just one world for all of us ;) Youre warmly invited to join our community and take an active part in it. Many topics are waiting to get
read and get commented on , or await additional historic info etc ..

But like any online community we have some basic rules to keep in mind .

Please take notice of the few rules we maintain strictly here to keep everyone happy :


RESPECT
-----------
This is a site which enjoys the company of members from all over the world. While healthy debate is encouraged, please have the courtesy to respect the views of others. Please do not use obscene or offensive language, or engage in personal attacks or "flaming" of other members. This will not be tolerated. Does not mean were all saints here , but we do highly regard personal opinions :)


SPAM
--------
Spamming is posting links to commercial products in any forum. Items not specifically geared towards history will be deleted outright (cell phones, Viagra,televangelism ,fashionbags etc.) wherever they are found. Posting the same message in multiple forums is also considered spam, no matter what the content unless specifically authorized by staff. Anyway , deliberately joining this forum to spam will lead to a direct IPban and a email address ban ...and just maybe (if you were irritating enough) you'll find your Louis Shitton baggies-site stuffed with Stalinist and Nazi propaganda in return so don't SEO spam us !!


RACISM
-----------
Under no circumstances will racist remarks or racial slurs be allowed. Be nice !!


NAZI REVISIONISM/REVISIONIST HISTORY
-------------------------------------------------
Needless to say, these have no place at a serious historical forum, although we may allow them in certain circumstances as case studies of how history can be manipulated by ignorance. Our moderators are perfectly capable to determine where a certain view gets beyond good taste or not :)


PROFANITY
--------------
Excessive profanity, or profanity which is directed at another user, will not be tolerated.


DISORDERLY CONDUCT
---------------------------
Behaviour which is either disruptive or which demonstrates a lack of respect for our community as a whole or a particular Member or group of Members is not acceptable and, if necessary, action will be taken to stop this. In addition, potentially libelous comments against any other person or organisation will be removed if necessary.

ADULT CONTENT
--------------------
Attachments depicting nudity or themes of an "adult" nature are not permitted.
Were no sexless puritans here , as long as there's no 'microphones' ,' beavers' or 'oysters' in close up its OK :toast:
Don't complain about shocked kids to the management , that's purely a parental responsibility as we're not Sesame street singing 'Michael row your boat gently down the stream ' behind our keyboards :D

Age advise for entering Histomil is 16+


ILLEGAL ACTS
-----------------
The discussion of pirating, or alluding to pirating of software is not permitted within these Forums.
Discussing Somali piracy is another case ,though :devious:


AVOIDING COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
---------------------------------------------

We do not allow the posting of full articles, unless permission is explicitly granted from the owner. If you wish to post an online article for discussion, please use the leading paragraph(s) as a sample, followed by the link to the full article. Readers can then read the article on the external site and discuss it on our forums after reading it. We respect the copyright holders of external material and we reserve the right to truncate any extended copying and pasting of articles. Articles without proper attribution will be removed completely if brought to the attention of staff. However ..some articles are found on dying 'sources' soon disappearing from the net and to preserve those it can be a educated choice you rather do post these as a whole.. make shure you do credit the author /source in these cases .

Photos, videos, audio, etc. remain the property of the creator or copyright holder and this site in no way makes a claim on these properties, even if linked
or displayed by users of our forum. If you are the owner of a website which has material such as photos displayed by members here or elsewhere, ask your
host to turn on Hotlink Protection. This prevents anyone from viewing your images outside your website.


SANCTIONS
--------------
Since people like to know procedure, here is our general outline of how we handle problems in the community. We use a very hands-off moderation approach, and most times you won't even know a moderator is around. If any of the above rules are broken, it will usually result in a Private Message being sent to the member, and 99% of the time we can reach a solution that is almost transparent to the rest of the membership.

Sometimes, it will go to the next step, which requires a moderator to publicly alter someone's message [for instance if there is extreme profanity in a message, but the member has logged off for the night]. This is rarely done, and we try to put a note in the original post as to why something was changed. In a more serious manner, a member can knowingly, intentionally, or repeatedly break rules and may be asked politely to stop, be forced to sit out for a couple weeks, or as an absolute last resort be banned from our community. Even then, a sincere apology is usually all that is required to lift said ban (except in cases where someone tries to circumvent the ban by creating fictitious users - this pretty much insures permanent exile).


Login name and password :
---------------------------------
Login name should be chosen from a combination of letters and numbers ( spacers are allowed ).
passwords should be chosen in a combination of letters and numbers only .

Avatars
---------
Max size 90x90 is preferred


Uploaded pictures
---------------------
Uploaded pictures can have a maximum size of 1240x1024
