    Please read the following rules carefully. Rules are to be followed at all times. By registering with BittyBaySide, you agree to follow each rule listed below. Please note that BittyBaySide reserves the right to modify or change any of the terms and conditions at any time, with little or no notice.

    1) Accounts

    Members are permitted to have one account per person. It is forbidden to create multiple accounts in order to bypass bans, infractions or any rule breaking linked to your account.

    2) Age Restrictions

    You must be at least 11 (eleven) years old before registering. If you are under 13 (thirteen), please ask a parent or guardian’s permission before signing up.

    3) Vulgarity and Bullying

    All members must be treated in a respectful and adult manner. All members should attempt to promote harmony within the community. Do not attempt to disrupt the community in any way. This includes posting messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest.
