National Space Society (NSS) members who choose to participate on INSIDE.NSS.ORG are subject to complying with this Terms of Use Policy. NSS reserves the right to amend this policy at any time, for any reason, without prior notice, and may do so by posting a new version online. Your continued use of this website will be subject to the terms of the then-current Terms of Use Policy. If we make any material changes we will notify you by means of a notice on this website - INSIDE.NSS.ORG -  prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our terms of use for INSIDE.NSS.ORG.


  1. Member usernames can not contain any sequence of characters that represent profanity, hate speech, racial slurs, or other derogatory terms. Neither may the string “NSS” appear in a username as this is reserved for official NSS use. Failure to comply with these conditions will result in delays in your account being formally approved. Failure to modify your username so that it meets the required conditions will result in a suspended account.

  2. Personal information provided by members and appearing on INSIDE.NSS.ORG is not to be compiled, collected, or otherwise processed for any commercial or promotional purposes.

  3. Members are expected to behave in a professional and respectful way towards other members while using the website. Name calling, derogatory comments, accusations, threats, personal attacks, or deliberately provocative messages (trolling) may result in a suspension of some or all account privileges.

  4. NSS assumes no liability for the accuracy of any information posted by members on this website. Member content is not checked, verified, or edited, and is used at your own risk.

  5. Members are not to post any form of advertisement for commercial products or to solicit on behalf of a business, or post notice of items for sale or lease. Promoting non-National Space Society products and services are prohibited unless the specific promotion has been pre-approved by the National Space Society. The promotion of conferences and events is permissible as long as those conferences and events are within the field of astronautics, commercial space, or space advocacy.

  6. The posting of job openings and business recruiting is allowed only within the NSS Career Center.

  7. NSS does not in either real-time or continuously monitor for inappropriate member postings, comments, or file uploads.

  8. NSS reserves the right to block, remove, or edit any content that it deems to be abusive, derogatory, harassing, slanderous, off-topic, in bad taste, objectionable, advertising, out of context within a forum/thread topic, or which violates any site policy. NSS reserves the right to suspend the account of any user whose content violates the NSS terms of use.

  9. NSS may at its discretion prohibit access to the site by any person found to be in violation of these policies, or for any reason deemed appropriate or suitable.
