Thank you for your interest in joining the Project Avalon Forum. Please read the following carefully.
As you may already be aware, the Project Avalon Forum has a reputation among many for being one of the highest quality forums on the internet. It's more than a virtual community of friends; it's also a kind of open-source, online university containing over a thousand active members, many of whom are remarkable people.
We have scientists, authors, ex-military officers, teachers, lecturers, researchers, therapists, abductees, engineers, experiencers, psychics, visionaries, artists, musicians, and many plain and simple lovely, spiritual people — from all walks of life and from all over the world. Their ages range from 15 to 85, and their life experiences are similarly varied. They are united in their commitment (a) to personal learning and growth, and (b) to helping make the world a better place.
The members make the forum, and the detailed membership application process below is one of the ways in which the high quality of the membership is maintained. The reason we ask for so much personal information is simply to get an idea of who you are, what your values and interests are, and what you stand for. The information is never shared publicly, and is only used by the moderators of the forum to make a decision about whether to invite you to join.
As a result of your application (which may have several days to process, as the moderators will all read what you've written and discuss it with one other), we'll write back to you with one of three responses:
— We may invite you to the forum.
— We may let you know that you've not give us enough information to enable us to make a decision, in which case we'll invite you to say more.
— We may let you know that on the basis of what you have shared with us, we don't feel that we can invite you to be a member at this time.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We will definitely get back to you, usually within 1-4 days (but very occasionally, this may take longer). If our reply isn't in your inbox, PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER. We never decline an application by not replying. If you can't find our response, you're always welcome to write to firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the forum contact form, to ask us what's happened.
So: please see this from our point of view. We welcome your interest, but we know nothing about you. Therefore the only way we can get to know you at this early stage is by what you write below. We thank you for this, and we look forward to reading your application.
Our best wishes — Bill Ryan and the Avalon Moderators Team

In order to proceed, we ask you to agree with the following rules:
A - General
is subject to pre-registration and no one can post without first
registering. By registering, the member’s IP address is viewable
by the moderators. This way, we prevent the forum from being
exploited for commercial or other purposes not related to our
guidelines and can take steps to ensure our members’ privacy if
Access to the Project Avalon Forum is
currently free, however this does not mean this is a public forum.
Project Avalon is a private forum with public access. As such all
material contained within the site including posts by members are
the sole property of Project Avalon & Project Camelot.
Membership is a privilege not a right and the administration
reserves the right to deny or remove access to whom it sees fit in
order to preserve the security and integrity of the community.
Disagreeing with various points or
topics is natural, however we do require that our members be treated
with respect. If a member’s conduct is seen to hurt the community
spirit of the group and persist even after warnings to desist, they
will be unsubscribed. Generally individual posts will be moderated
first, and thus not appear on the forum, before the member is
members are expected to contribute to the positive energy and
attitude of the forum. While healthy debate is a traditional and
integral part of all critical inquiry, members are expected to be
open-minded, committed to learning, and responsive to
who does not appear to be in alignment with the purpose and energy
of the forum may be asked to leave.
joined this forum to discuss our material, not to hear others
showcase theirs. Members who insist on promoting / showcasing
themselves, their own websites, philosophies, products, services or
other unrelated teachings will be unsubscribed.
Links in your signature that point to
any website which offers products or services for purchasing are not
permitted, If you want to promote a product or service that relates
to the mission of Project Avalon feel free to post in Networking
Products and Services
Always feel free to contact the
moderators with questions and concerns.
Section B - Posting
that promote or showcase illegal drugs and other substances, pornography including nude art,
foul language, racial / sexual / national intolerance, hate speech,
politically subversive acts or planning, will not be tolerated. See
"Trolling" in the Infractions/Suspensions section below.
relating to suicide are prohibited due to legal liability. If you
are feeling suicidal - please immediately call your local suicide
hot-line or some TRAINED PROFESSIONAL for help.
2. PERSONAL CONVERSATIONS
conversations should be conducted privately. Although the majority
of our members are “lurkers” who do not regularly post, do
remember that your posts are going out to hundreds of people who may
not find private jokes or topics beneficial. Try to keep posts on
topic at all times.
Private messages are not be posted in
public without the authors permission. If you have a problem with
private messages you may "Report" them using the link at
the bottom of the message. A copy of the message is then sent to the
moderators for action.
3. POSTING ‘DEAD’ TEXT
text” wastes bandwidth as well as disk space and reading time.
When replying to a post, please quote only the previous text
that is essential to the reply. This does slightly slow down
the speed with which you may respond to a post, but is in
consideration of the other members.
Every time you respond to a post, your
dead-text cleanup job should include all the advertising material at
the end of the post which sometimes accumulates. The moderation team
may edit or reject posts that violate this guideline. It only takes
a few extra seconds but it makes a world of difference in the
quality of our presentation.
4. SUBJECT TO EDITING/DELETION
posts may be subject to modifications by the moderation team. In our
effort to uphold these guidelines and preserve the community spirit
of the forum, posts may be editied moved or deleted with or without
All posts become property of Project
5. WORD CENSOR
The forum uses a mindless word censor.
Its the way the forum owners and administrators have decided to run
the forum. It aims to eliminate rude words such as **** and ****.
Please do not use methods to subvert the word censor that allow
excessive profanity or vulgarity to bleed through on to the forums.
6. POSTING EXTERNAL
outside material with the forum, please do it in the form of links
with summary paragraphs. Posting long passages (i.e. more than a few
short paragraphs) of outside text, regardless of relevance, is
of the content of the link should be a paragraph of your own words
and / or with a single-paragraph excerpt from the text itself.
“Naked” links, i.e. links without
summary text, should be avoided, as most members do not have the
time to blindly research such links.
7. POSTING LINKS TO DOWNLOAD
Posting live links [rapidshare,
torrents etc.] to download 'copyrighted' material in the forum is
prohibited. Any such post's will be removed/edited. Persistent
posting of such links may result in the member concerned losing
8. POST DELETION
We consider posts to this forum too
important for members to come back at a later date and remove them
without good reason. Therefore this forum considers posts made to it
become the property of the forum. Members who remove posts or by
editing obscure or otherwise grossly change posts may have them
restored again by the Moderators if it is considered it would affect
the readability and flow of the threads they appear in.
9. OVER USE OF TEXT FORMATTING
Excessive use of over the top attention
grabbing formats such as ALL CAPS, large text,
alarmist and panicky URGENT headlines are not permitted and may be
edited by moderators
C - Personal Behavior
not be directed to any specific individuals such as Bill Ryan, Kerry
Cassidy or any specific witness unless a discussion has already
opened. We advise you to direct your comments, questions and
concerns to the group, so anyone may answer you. This promotes
community discussion rather than individual confrontation.

member, please look for the REPORT button found below a members

are offensive or in violation of the guidelines will be removed by
Personal attacks on threads, where
singling out a member(s) for purposes of negative or derogatory
remarks is not permitted and will get your post/thread deleted and
an infraction given to you which may deny you access to the forum.
Section D -
In most cases a
member who breaks the guidelines will not lose their membership but
receive Infractions. Infractions can be given to any member who steps
outside the guidelines put forth here. Points are issued with
infractions and can amount to you being denied access from anywhere
to 1-7 days or permanent depending on the severity of the infraction.
Points may also be issued without losing access but they are
cumulative, example: 2 points issued wont restrict your access but a
second 2 point infraction will prevent you from posting for 7 days.
The following topics are reasons for giving infractions.
Making threats is not permitted on this
forum. Any threats made on this forum toward moderators or other
forum members can earn the perpetrator an instant and permanent ban.
The posts in which the threats are made and most likely any
quoted reference to the threat may be removed by the moderators
without explanation. For the avoidance of doubt, this does not
mean just physical threats, but also threats of a
spiritual/metaphysical nature. Don't even do it as a joke, the joke
will be on you if you get denied access.
An internet troll, or simply troll in
Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and irrelevant or
off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online
discussion forum, with the intention of provoking other users into
an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic
discussion. Members who engage in trolling risk losing their
membership and posting rights. SEE:
