Doll Forum Rules
There is no charge for joining this Forum. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. If you agree to the terms, you may proceed to Register.
This is a community of doll lovers. Your behaviour here, and ours as administrators, can be summed up in a phrase: “we post on doll related topics only, with respect for each others values”. Please think before you post and re-read what you type before you post it. Keep your comments limited to the topic at hand and do not make anything a personal issue between you and another member.
There is tremendous diversity in age, race, gender, language, location (worldwide) and more here and there will be a lot of varying opinions on different subjects. We're all human beings and we're all drawn to this site because we have a common bond as doll lovers. We will willingly listen to your suggestions and complaints, and try to incorporate your ideas.
If you come across any violations to these guidelines or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know through the Contact Us form. We'll be happy to address your concerns. Here at My Doll Best Friend we encourage everyone to participate in and enjoy the Community while at the same time adhering to these Guidelines:
Welcome New Members
When newcomers arrive, welcome them to our growing community. Many of our community's senior members are a wealth of knowledge and have much to share. Help new members learn about how to find information and resources, save time, and how to get involved in the Community.
Respect Others' Points of View
Be Careful In What You Write
It's not a good idea to put your address or telephone number on a public discussion forum. We encourage you to keep personal information personal.
There may be places where explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics or behaviour is appropriate however the My Doll Best Friend Forum is not one of those places. Posts containing explicit, obscene or vulgar language will be removed. Similarly, posts that solicit or offer explicit or X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or similar content files will be deleted without notice! Links to Websites with adult content/images anywhere on the site will be removed. Simply put, we do not wish to be seen as supporting any site that contains adult content - adult content being defined as any material that you would not feel comfortable showing to your spouse, your teenagers, or your boss and co-workers. In other words, anything which is "NWS" (not work safe). This represents our values and our desire to appeal to the widest possible audience not to mention keeping clear of any restrictions that our present or future advertisers might have regarding acceptable content.
Write And Post What's Beautiful
Do not post the same discussion more than once on a discussion forum or on many forums. Duplicate discussions are frustrating and counterproductive for other members. Duplicate discussions will be deleted.
No Advertising – Spam
Do not heedlessly place your advertisements through the Discussion Forums. This could result in the loss of your Membership.
No Abuse of the Doll Forum messenging systems (PM's and email)
Personal Messaging is provided to the members of the Doll Forum as a service intended to enhance the Community experience. The purpose of personal messaging is to allow for discreet conversations to take place between members. Solicitation, spamming, or harassment of any kind is strictly forbidden. Any member receiving an inappropriate personal message should forward that message to an Administrator or Moderator right away. Although PM's are normally only accessible by those who send and receive them, they are part of the database and as such, property of My Doll Best Friend. An Administrator, if so inclined, could locate the Private Messages in the database and read them. They are private, but not necessarily secret. In addition, Private Messages are not intended to deprive the Community of valuable information or experiences which could benefit the entire group. Please do not use private messages if the content of the message can be helpful to others. (Private messaging is currently not an available function).
The internet is a big place, and it's no surprise that from time to time a site will come along whose mission is to occupy the same niche as My Doll Best Friend. We have no issue with that. However, it would be against our best interests, and therefore the best interests of our members, for us to allow such sites to build upon our popularity by promoting themselves here. Therefore, no competing site may attempt to gain traffic from My Doll Best Friend in any way, including but not limited to, links in posts, signatures, profile information, PM's or emails.
No Copyrighted Material
Information copyrighted or owned by any individual or entity other than the member should not be posted on the discussion forums or software libraries without the consent of the owner. If such an event occurs, the individual posting the information shall be held solely responsible. My Doll Best Friend shall not be held responsible for member-posted information that may violate copyright law.
You cannot legally post entire articles or news in the forum without permission from the copyright holder. Even if you attribute the article correctly it’s still copyright infringement. Copyright law does not care if you make any money off of the work or not, what matters is if you hurt the potential income of the copyright holder. In this case you would be depriving them of revenue and it is illegal. Under Fair Use provisions you can legally post a small abstract of an article - or perhaps the opening paragraph. So if you want to post an article you should do this and include a link, or just post the link. The exception to this rule is press releases; press releases are meant for distribution and can be copied and distributed as much as you want. If you are not sure if you can copy something then always err on the side of caution and simply post a link to the material.
My Doll Best Friend Discretion
My Doll Best Friend and its administrators reserves the right to remove a post which does not relate to the topic being discussed in the forum. In addition, My Doll Best Friend reserves the right to organise discussion forums in order to best serve the majority of our members. For example, narrow-interest or minimal activity topics may, at My Doll Best Friend's discretion, be relocated to a more appropriate discussion forum, or deleted entirely. My Doll Best Friend or its administrators also reserves the right to prohibit or delete discussions that are thought to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members, the sites that comprise My Doll Best Friend or the rights of My Doll Best Friend or others. That said, we cannot ensure prompt removal of offending discussion forum posts. We also reserve the right to remove your membership from you should you violate these Guidelines.

Please remember that My Doll Best Friend does not actively monitor the contents of all posted messages and is not responsible for any messages posted.

My Doll Best Friend has the ability to remove objectionable messages and will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if it is determined that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realise that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately, in fact, we may not edit or delete posts that break our rules at all. We have many time constraints on us and cannot guarantee that we will be able to edit or delete posts that break the rules/user agreement. If you do not agree with this then do not view or register for the My Doll Best Friend Forum.
