Any user generated media content posted on the Forum expresses only the views of the author of that message or image and does not necessarily reflect our views or the views of any other person on the Forum.
All posted user generated media content will be pre- or post-moderated, depending on the application. This means that every comment or image will be checked by a Chicoco Collective moderator for compliance with the guidelines below either before it is published or on being flagged-up for attention by users. We reserve the right to refuse or remove any UGC submitted.
