Keep Peoria.com Friendly, Safe and Welcoming:

A Couple Guidelines:
  • No insults or name calling directed at other members. Refrain from posting personal or character attacks.
  • If many people might interpret a message or picture as racist, bigoted or sexist, please refrain from posting it.
  • Don't pretend to be someone else, or post under several usernames.
  • Privacy / Anonymity: Never post personal information (real name, address, work place, physical description, email address, family status, etc.) that would betray the anonymity of another member without permission, either publicly or in private messages. We can only enforce your anonymity/privacy if you are careful about giving out your information publicly. If you think someone has violated your privacy / anonymity, please contact an Admin ASAP.
  • Keep the forums clean: messages that are too crude may get deleted. Don't post sexually explicit or violent pictures. Follow our strict photo & video guidelines when posting photos or videos.
  • No business solicitations, advertisements, spam or business self promotion on the forums, please.
  • "Ignore" is meant to reduce conflict. If you have somenone on ignore, or they have you on ignore, please refrain from talking to or about that person.
  • Moderators typically delete the following types of threads: swan song posts, posts about ignoring someone, posts about someone being banned (if you have questions, send the admin a PM), criticisms of website sponsors, posts about one race being statistically better/worse than another, critiques of moderating (take it to PMs please), posts mentioning other forums or community web sites or Facebook groups.
  • Complaints about forum rules and enforcement of those rules should be sent to the Admin via PM. Posts on the public forums will be deleted.
  • Comments about other members breaking the rules will be removed. Please use the "Flag" option instead and let a moderator handle it.
  • No chronic unfriendly behavior allowed: members who habitually demean, criticize, or mock other members, or otherwise encourage a hostile environment on the forums will have their account closed without notice.
  • If two members continue arguing with each other after being asked to stop by the Admin, they will be put on "Forced Ignore" without notice.
  • If it appears you're deliberately attempting to break the spirit of these rules without being caught, you will be immediately removed from the site.
  • These rules apply to all participation on the site including private messages.
Moderators have the final word on forum decisions. Any message that we feel doesn't keep the Peoria.com forums friendly and inviting for others, may be removed or locked by moderators.
