The same board rules apply to the CARM Super/Team Members but they have additional privileges.
ATTENTION: There will be no refunds of membership donations. CARM rules apply to all posters, Super members and non-members. Should you lose your privileges to post due to a suspension, there is no refund of membership fees during your suspension/banning time, if you register a subscription while banned, the same rules apply . Your post will still remain on the discussion boards, edited only for inappropriate content, with links to your website, polls, remaining till end of membership contract. Joining the forum will give you extra privileges, but please remain within the board rules.
An extra privilege given to new forum subscriptions, was an update to points from old forums. Please note the rep points given per users are based on number of days on forum, number of posts and number of reps. Special note to Super/Secular Super Members, you may not continue with reps from old forums if you do not remain a Super Member. Since points are based somewhat on number of posts and rep points, Super Members who do not renew their subscriptions, may not keep the increased rep privileges from the old forums. We will remove old points from old forums since extra reps are a privilege for current Super Members. You also will lose points if suspended, or for rule violations/infractions.
