But for your information:
By using FlyHigh you agree to these Terms and Conditions of Use.

Drafted by americarocks and I. (sry weston i had you adding airports that day Tongue)

My only immediate concerns with the document are that:
1. Its on google docs (really I think it deserves its own, dedicated webpage.)
2. "You are aware that all information published on the site, the forums, and the FlyHigh Twitter account is property of FlyHigh unless otherwise noted." I don't think its fair to lay claim to all information posted on the forums, if someone does a nice RP post or Chi like story or makes a livery and it is uploaded then you have should not claim rights to it. It should remain with the author.
3. Under the rather vague UK law (Don't know about the US) then putting that you are using cookies in your T&C's is not sufficient and could land you fine, you either need a pop-up or a notice in the banner. (like this one http://app.cookieassistant.com/popups/new)
4. "[b]You agree to not use for a service or website other than FlyHigh[/b], alter, or duplicate any part of the site or the forums without written consent from all administrators." Now I know what your trying to get across here, but to my interpretation of it is that I can no longer use any websites apart from Flyhigh (no Google ect.). I think a better wording is "You agree to not use a service or website with the intent to alter or duplicate any part of the site or the forums without written consent from all administrators."

At present I would not sign up to a site with such conditions (Particularly 2)

The current terms of the forums:
"Whilst we attempt to edit or remove any messages containing inappropriate, sexually orientated, abusive, hateful, slanderous, or threatening material that could be considered invasive of a persons privacy, or which otherwise violate any kind of law, it is impossible for us to review every message posted on this discussion system. For this reason you acknowledge that all messages posted on this discussion system express the views and opinions of the original message author and not necessarily the views of this bulletin board. Therefore we take no responsibility and cannot be held liable for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy and completeness of every message.

By registering on this discussion system you agree that you will not post any material which is knowingly false, inaccurate, abusive, hateful, harassing, sexually orientated, threatening or invasive of a person's privacy, or any other material which may violate any applicable laws.

Failure to comply with these rules may result in the termination of your account, account suspension, or permanent ban of access to these forums. Your IP Address is recorded with each post you make on this discussion system and is retrievable by the forum staff if need-be. You agree that we have the ability and right to remove, edit, or lock any account or message at any time should it be seen fit. You also agree that any information you enter on this discussion system is stored in a database, and that "cookies" are stored on your computer to save your login information.

Any information you provide on these forums will not be disclosed to any third party without your complete consent, although the staff cannot be held liable for any hacking attempt in which your data is compromised.

By continuing with the sign up process you agree to the above rules and any others that the Administrator specifies."


I see no rule about who owns the content (unless you come up with something under the last one)
