Part of the Terms of Service for using the Channel P101tv website.

Channel P101tv strives to protect it's users from spam and abuse. Technical abuse and user abuse is not tolerated on Channel P101tv, and will result in permanent suspension. Any accounts engaging in the activities specified below are subject to permanent suspension.

Serial Accounts
You may not create serial accounts for disruptive or abusive purposes, or with overlapping use cases. Mass account creation may result in suspension of all related accounts. Please note that any violation of the P101tv terms, rules and guidelines contained herein and in related documentation published in this website is cause for permanent suspension of all accounts.

Username Squatting
You may not engage in username squatting. Accounts that are inactive for more than 6 months may also be removed without further notice. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be username squatting are:

- the number of accounts created

- creating accounts for the purpose of selling those accounts

Invitation spam
You may not use P101tv's private mesaging system to send unsolicted messages that are commercial in nature, that promote advertising or which are abusive or defamatory. The messaging system should not be used to invite other members of P101tv to join other websites or clubs.

You may not publish or link to malicious content intended to damage or disrupt another user's browser or computer or to compromise a user's privacy.

You may not use the P101tv service for the purpose of spamming anyone. What constitutes 'spamming' will evolve as we respond to new tricks and tactics employed by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are, but not limited to:

- If you have contacted a large amount of members in a short amount of time;
- If your updates consist mainly of links, and not related to the content of the P101tv website;
- If you post misleading links;
- If you post unrelated content;
- If you post links to unrelated content;
- If a large number of people are blocking you;
- The number of spam complaints that have been filed against you;
- If you post duplicate content over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account;
- If you post multiple unrelated updates to a trending or popular topic;

You may not use obscene or pornographic images in either your profile picture, gallery uploads, video uploads or in any posts.

Your account may be suspended and/or terminated for Terms of Service violations if any of the above is true. Accounts created to replace suspended accounts will be permanently suspended.

Accounts engaging in any of these behaviors may be investigated for abuse. Accounts under investigation may be removed from Search for quality. P101tv reserves the right to immediately terminate your account without further notice in the event that, in its sole judgment, you violate these Rules or the Terms of Service.

Anti Spam measures

In order to reduce the occurance of spam, P101tv has employed a number of automated practices. The principle measures are as follows:
URL's in Forum Posts. All new members of the website will NOT be able to create a post that contains a URL or Website address to an external website. Once a user has made a number of uploads, their URL privaleges will be re-instated and they will be able to include URLS's and website addresses in their posts. Hopefully this will slow the spammers down a little and genuine new members will understand the reasoning behind my restrictions.

URL's on user profile page. All new members will NOT be able to include a link to a website in their profile page. This has been disabled at registration as well as post registration via the user Control Panel. Again, once the user has made a number of genuine content uploads they will be able to include a website address.

URL's that are allowed. There will be some URL's that new users will be able to include in their posts while their combined content upload count is under the threashold level. These include:

- www.p101tv.com
- www.stuttgartexchange.com
- www.myporsche911.co.uk

Inserting links to other message Threads. While a user content upload count is below the threashold, they will still be able to post links between P101tv video and picture message threads and to other areas of the P101tv website.

Email Domain Restrictions. There are many known domains that spammers use for registering their email address with forums. The forum will now compare those addresses to addresses used at registration. Any match will cause the registration process to be cancelled.

Upload Threashold and Membership StatusThe number of content uploads made by a channel 1p101tv member defines that users membership status. The membership status in turn defines the threashold afterwhich members can post URL's into comments. 'Fledglings' and 'Newbies' are not able post url's or weblinks. They can only post links to internal P101tv pages. Once a user's membership status moves up to being a 'Jr. Member' they will be able to post external URL's or weblinks.

The membership status levels for the channel P101tv website are based on how many pictures or videos or bogs are uploaded. These are the current levels:

- Fledgling - upto 5 uploads;
- Newbie - upto 25 uploads;
- Jr. Member - upto 50 uploads;
- Member - upto 150 uploads;
- Hero Member - Above 151 uploads.

A users membership status badge is displayed below the users avatar for any picture or video uploads as well as on the user's profile page.

Username Restrictions. Any username which implies a relationship to the Channel P101tv name or gives the impression of an administrator or moderator status are not allowed. Also any username which is considered abusive or defamatory is not allowed. Any attempt to create a username which breaches this policy will be automatically cancelled and removed.
