FORUM RULES

I consider it an honor that you would take the time to come here and post whatever you want to relate to your solar experience.

Unfortunately, due to some people, namely the scum of the Earth internet scammers and some wacko former members, abusing this open forum, I have to now state a few conditions that you must follow to be allowed to participate here. If you don't follow these VERY lenient rules you will be removed without recourse at my discretion.

***NO POLITICS // NO RELIGION // NO ARGUMENTS // NO OVERINFLATED EGOS

***The Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project, Inc and all it's affiliate websites are legally protected entities. Please do not use my name or likeness, or the name or logo(s) of my nonprofit in any for-profit manner in or outside of this website. I DO NOT ENDORSE ANY AMATEUR ASTRONOMY PRODUCT AND I DO NOT SELL ANYTHING ON EBAY OR ANY OTHER SITE TO RAISE FUNDS FOR MY NONPROFIT OR ANYONE ELSE. If you see someone using my name or the nonprofit name or logo to sell something please advise me immediately so I can shut it down.

***ABSOLUTELY NO FUNDRAISING OR SOLICITATIONS ARE ALLOWED ON THIS SITE OTHER THAN THOSE THAT DIRECTLY BENEFIT THE CHARLIE BATES SOLAR ASTRONOMY PROJECT.

***This is not a vendor complaint forum. Go over to the other astronomy forums for that stuff, your excessive complaints or over the top accusations about any retailer will be removed based on my interpretation of them and the context they are written. I do not sell anything and I am not a retailer and dont want to get involved in your problems with a dealer or manufacturer.

***PLEASE CREDIT THE IMAGER AND THE FORUM if you distribute these images anywhere else. If you post an image here it will likely be shared on other websites or be used in presentations for educational purposes. If you have a problem with your images being shared freely, don't post them.

***All of the content on this forum is yours to share as you like without copyright infringement issues as long as it is not abusive or for-profit and you credit the imager and the forum. For Example : " [username] on SolarChat ".

***I do not verify any information on this forum so if you read a post that sounds too good to be true or advertises some fantastic solar viewing modification or camera, etc... it quite well could be an exaggeration from the poster or unsafe to use. If anyone purposely posts anything that could be harmful to other users, they, and their posts, will be removed. :) Dont put any crazy recommendations that could hurt others.
NEVER VIEW THE SUN THROUGH ANY DEVICE WITHOUT THE PROPER FILTRATION CERTIFIED BY A LEGITIMATE MANUFACTURER. YOU CAN LOSE YOUR EYESIGHT IMMEDIATELY IF YOU MAKE A FOOLISH DECISION WHEN VIEWING THE SUN!!
