Registration Agreement

I. PREFACE

THANK YOU for your interest in joining Team SGP at gruntspajamas.com!  

Team SGP is a unique community of individuals who take a scientific approach to gaming.   We form theories, test them, and report the results.  When you get your information from the SGP, you're getting the good stuff.

As part of our team of enthusiasts who take a "labcoat approach" to gaming, we ask that you follow some basic rules.  Relax, we're not looking to sell you identity or spam your grandmother.   It's all straightforward and not as scary as those "Terms and Conditions" you click past every day on the internet.   We're just making sure you're not a jerk.

Our official Registration Agreement can be found below.  This is the stock agreement used by Simple Machines Forums.  It's the legal stuff we'll only resort to if you turn out to not belong here.

In practice, our guiding principles are:

1. If you're not having fun, there's a problem.  Go play a game!
2. Expectations are dangerous.  Avoid them.
3. Keep It Clean!

More little rules for minding your Ps and Qs while forum posting can be found here: http://www.gruntspajamas.com/forum/index.php?topic=623.0

And that's it for the "street talk" portion of this wall of text.  Below is the official registration agreement.  We hope to welcome you into the team soon!
