ToS default company name, email

To use the forum, you must agree to these terms with company_name, the company that runs the forum

You may close your account at any time by e-mailing <contact_email>.

governing_law will govern any dispute related to these terms or your use of the forum.

You and the company agree to seek injunctions related to these terms only in state or federal court in city_for_disputes.

You may notify the company under these terms, and send questions to the company, at <contact_email>.

IANAL, but that all makes me twitch.


A binding contract with unnamed entities makes you uncomfortable? :thinking:

Is this one of the things that an administrator needs to do?

Sounds like it, but maybe @codinghorror can elaborate who has the permissions and responsibility to un-boilerplate that boilerplate.

Just contact website_administrator.

That’s @website_adminstrator to you.

I’m disappointed but not shocked that this account doesn’t seem to exist.

Good point, I’m not sure @engineer_comp_geek can edit that. Could be admin-only versus moderator.

There is a field in the settings that lets you direct the terms of service to another web page entirely, if there is an existing ToS somewhere – don’t feel like you have to use these default boilerplate ToS.

I think the closest SDMB comes is this sprawling and agglutinative topic.

I can’t edit it directly but I can work with our admin to get it edited. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

We are hoping to make that a bit less of a sprawling mess soon.
