These boards will stay open under specific guidelines, and the Administrators and Moderators reserve the right to close them at any time without notice. All posts on the Discussion Board will pertain to Disney Pin Trading and Collecting only. Any posts that do not adhere to Disney Pin Trading and Collecting will be deleted or moved to the appropriate board at the discretion of the Moderators.
The Dizpins Boards are open and available for anyone to post. We reserve the right to delete, edit or close posts that make personal references, contain obscenities, are inflammatory, contain personal attacks, or are in anyway inappropriate as per the judgment of the Administration. All posts that become excessively negative in the judgment of the moderators will also be closed, edited, or deleted.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for whatever material you submit, and you, not Dizpins, has full responsibility for the message, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality and copyright.
Dizpins will also not be liable for any personal attacks made on this web site. The Dizpins Boards are provided for entertainment and informational purposes only. Opinions or views expressed on the Boards do not necessarily reflect those of Dizpins.
Please confine posts for trades and sales to the proper boards, and combine your posts into one post. The Moderators will edit or delete multiple posts by the same user or combine them into one post, if applicable.
The general discussion board is for pin information and discussion only. All other posts will be confined to the proper board, i.e., Cruise Posts on the Cruise Board and any Off Topic Posts will be placed in the Dizpins Coffee Shop and OT Forum.
Dizpins does not permit the use of these Boards for commercial purposes of any kind, with the exception of the personal sale of pins and pin trading items on the Dizpins Sale Board. Any other solicitation, such as charity or the sale of other items, must be requested in writing to the Administrator of the Board before posting. Dizpins is not responsible for any contests, pin swaps, etc. conducted by individual members.
Contests, Zaps and Pin Swaps
may be started by any member and will be placed in the Zaps, Swaps and Contests
Forum. If you start a contest and/or pin swap, the rules and guidelines must
be posted. Dizpins is not responsible for any contests, pin swaps, etc. conducted
by individual members.
Links to personal pages for display or sharing of pin related materials are permitted. If a linked, urled page or a link to another site and/or forum is posted, either in the body content of the post or the poster's signature, we respectfully request a return link to Dizpins. Appropriate informational links are allowed, however, we reserve the right to remove any link and/or reference to inappropriate sites and/or material content. Inappropriate links in signature lines or in posts, per the judgment of the Administration, will be deleted. Due to the controversial issues sometimes associated with links contained within myspace.com, we will not permit links to myspace.com.

the intellectual property rights associated with Disney or its affiliates. All

If we catch you violating these terms we won't issue a warning. We will invoke our ZERO TOLERANCE policy and lodge formal complaints with your ISP, Web Hosting Company, master domain that hosts your site if you do own a domain, Upstream Providers, and applicable federal and state authorities. In other words, you agree that you will not use Dizpins to transmit spam, bulk or unsolicited communications. Your membership to Dizpins will also be terminated and that termination will be permanent.
No links or references to auctions are permitted on ANY board or in your personal profile or signature. Links to auctions such as charities or the solicitation of funds solely for the use for Dizpins and Pinpics maintenance, must be requested in writing to the Administrator of the Board before posting.
There have been many posts about auctions that we find on the various auction sites. Ultimately, these posts tend to discuss either the bidder or the seller or both.
We do not know the circumstances surrounding auctions, such as why a seller is selling a pin; how he or she acquired the pin; or what a person bids on a pin. We want to avoid any misunderstandings or personal feelings, as many of the posters on this board buy and sell on auction sites.
As such, we ask that you be respectful of people by refraining from discussing auctions, prices, buyers and sellers. These posts will be deleted.
However, if a
member makes an informational post, and that member requests a trade for that
pin or involving that pin, we will allow it to stay on the Discussion Board.
ALL pin trading posts will be confined to the Trade Board. This board is for the trading of Disney pins and pin related items ONLY. Please combine your postings to save on space and for the consideration of others. The moderators reserve the right to edit and/or combine any and all trade posts. If you are trading pins for any items other than pins, please post on the Dizpins Coffee Shop.
Please help keep the boards clean! Once you have sold or traded your pin(s), or you've found the pin(s) you're looking for, please edit the subject line of your post to say, "PLEASE DELETE". This will inform the moderators, and all the other members, that your sale or trade is complete. At that point, one of the moderators will delete your post. You will not be notified of the deletion via email or private message.
Any transactions completed on the Boards, including sales and trades, are not under the control of Dizpins and therefore Dizpins cannot be held liable.
If you are selling any item other than pins, please post on the Dizpins Coffee Shop. Posts on the Sale Board listing any and all non-pin items will be moved to the Dizpins Coffee Shop. If listing items for sale on the Coffee Shop, you must state a specific price for the item(s) you are selling, and you must adhere to the prices you list. No "make offers" or links or references to personal auctions are permitted.
Japan Disney Mall pins being sold by members of the Ohana may be stickied to the Sale Board with a closed reference post on the Discussion Board.

The originator of the co-op may post on the Discussion Board that they will be running a co-op for merchandise, either a DA LE 100 Pin co-op or a co-op of merchandise from an event and that post will contain a link to a post on the Sale Board for interested parties. The post on the Discussion Board will then be closed. All interested parties will post to the thread on the Sale Board. The post on the Sale Board will be stickied, and once the co-op has been completed, the post will be closed and moved to the Closed Topic Board for reference.
If you are a confirmed registrant for an event, you may make a "co-op interest" post on the Sale Board stating that there is NO GUARANTEE that the item will be won on your RSP and there is a chance that you and the interested parties may not get this merchandise. Only confirmed registrants to an event may start a post for a co-op interest thread for event merchandise and this person will run the co-op. These posts will not be stickied. "Interest" posts will not be permitted on any forum except the Sale Board. Any interested parties will post in the interest thread on the Sale Board and e-mail the confirmed event registrant who will be putting the merchandise on his or her RSP and thus running the co-op. Any and all business transactions regarding this co-op will then be handled through personal e-mails.
Co-ops for Disney Framed Sets may be started on the Sale Board. If you are the person who will purchase the Framed Set, your post will be stickied on the Sale Board. The terms of your purchasing of the Framed Set and the terms of your co-op must be stated in your post. If the purchase of the Framed Set is confirmed, the buyer of the Framed Set may post on the Discussion Board that they will be running a co-op for the Framed Set and that post will contain a link to a post on the Sale Board for interested parties. The post on the Discussion Board will then be closed.
"Interest" posts for Framed Sets may be started on the Sale Board. In other words, if you are interested in a certain pin or pins from a Framed Set, you may post an "interest" post on the Sale Board. Others may post on this thread if they are also interested in any pins from the Framed Set. Once a "buyer" has been found, please e-mail Joette (email@example.com) or Bev (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will edit the thread to state that it is a confirmed co-op for a framed set. The confirmed buyer will then start a new post with what pins have been taken and what pins are still available, as well as posting the terms of the co-op. Interest posts will not count against your one post on the Sale Board.
Out of courtesy
for others posting on the Sale Board, we ask that only one interest thread per
Framed Set be used.
