Welcome to the Myoko Kogen Ski Community Forums!  ;D

As the awareness of Myoko Kogen grows steadily we're hoping for ever growing active community amongst skiiers and snowboarders who visit and reside in the area. Here's a chance to engage in discussions generated from your stories and advice.

Before you start, however, you must read these rules and guidelines 

Myoko Kogen Ski Community Forums (myokokogen.net) user agreement

 
Myoko Kogen Ski Community Forums (myokokogen.net) welcomes your participation in our Discussion Forums. These forums offer you the chance to interact with fellow skiiers and snowboarders.

We ask that you post with respect for all players. This is a community. So, when you post, we encourage you to tell your fellow community members a little about who you are - not just an e-mail address, but a bit of a bio. It enriches the discussion to know who's "behind the post."

In order to keep these forums enjoyable and interesting for all of our users, we ask simply that you follow these minimal rules. By participating in the Discussion Forums, you are consenting to these rules. Violators may be warned, suspended from posting, or barred from the forums or chats, at the sole discretion of the Myoko Kogen Ski Community Forums (myokokogen.net) moderators.

1.Exercise common sense and be considerate toward your fellow users. Diversity of opinion and intelligent civil discourse is encouraged; by the same token, insults and “flaming” are not tolerated.  >:( Disagreeing with an idea of another community member is different from attacking that individual.

2. Do not post off-topic. Please keep your comments consistent with the subject and purpose of the threads. Although we will not heavily moderate, deliberate disruption -- such as consistent off-topic and/or  frivolous commentary -- will not be tolerated such posts will be deleted.

Myoko Kogen Ski Community Forums (myokokogen.net) and its moderators reserve the right to delete posts and/or whole conversations we determine are of an irrelevant, abusive or disruptive nature.

This is your community - let us or your fellow posters know if you feel things are getting off-topic or inappropriate.

3.No all-caps (FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE THIS) or all-bolds please. It is extremely hard to read. Posts submitted in all-caps or all-bolds will be deleted automatically.

4.Although we love the extra information and sources you bring to this "microblogosphere", due to copyright and space  issues, please do not quote entire news articles from other sources; small excerpts and/or a link keeps things legal. Please provide a link.

Also, to keep the discussion and dialogue moving, please keep posts to a reasonable length. Excessively long posts will be deleted. If you have that much to say, we'd be happy to talk to you about a blog or a 'reader's perspective' piece on the main pages.

5.You must use your real full name and provide an e-mail address where we may contact you, if necessary, during the registration process. Your e-mail address will not be published on the site, except by you actively choosing to do so. You are limited to one user account on the system. Under no circumstances may you create alternate names, assume secondary identities or use someone else's name for your name.

We shall have the right in our sole discretion to edit, refuse to post, remove, or otherwise alter any material submitted to or posted on the chats or forums. Without limiting the foregoing, we shall have the right to remove any material that we, in our sole discretion, find to be in violation of this agreement or inappropriate for any reason whatever without consent.

Notwithstanding all of the foregoing, users remain solely responsible for the content of their messages.

We further reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to remove a user's privilege to post content in our discussion forums. Suspended members who re-register with new accounts will have those accounts deactivated without notice. Repeated attempts will result in our contacting your ISP with a complaint.
