General Guidelines / Site Rules



We were hoping it wouldn't come to this, but thanks to the abuse of the site... we had to write this up.

1. OBEY THE LAW!!! We can't stress this enough. If a place says no tresspassing, don't tresspass! It is very easy to ask permission... If they say no, then respect that. Don't vandalize areas either, by doing this you are not only risking jail/fines on yourself, you are also ruining it for the rest of us. Don't damage the locations. I get disgusted when I hear or see locations get graffiti or worse. If we find out that you are doing this, you will be banned from this site.

2. Do not insult or harass our members, doing so will get you warned and possibly banned.

3. You are always welcome to your own opinion however if you are posting your opinion on a article please refrain from being rude or unfriendly. Comments should be kept as friendly, helpful, and constructive as possible.  Since we deal with content that almost everyone has a different personal view on, we get a LOT of 'Bull shit!' or 'FAKE!!', these will not be tolerated.  You do however have the ability/right to say 'Well I don't think this is real'. 

4. Feel free to post articles regarding haunted, strange, or interesting attractions, however, refrain from posting ads for your services in our listings, members can create an account and post their info in their profiles or we also have a forum with specific areas made for such things.

5. Matrix and Hapyangel (Owners/Creators of Strangeusa), reserve the right to disallow access to our site for whatever reasons we see fit.

6. If we believe you have been spamming/abusing or ignoring any of these guidelines we will take action by banning you from our site. By IP address, username, email and whatever else we may consider needed.

7. In general, be considerate... If you aren't, you will be banned. We try to be a family friendly site here. We don't like playing babysitter.

8. You are responsible for your own choices in life, if you are offended by anything here, it is your own fault. YOU chose to come here, YOU clicked the links, no one made you do anything. If you do something, it is your own fault and you agree that the site owners are not responsible in any way shape or form, directly or indirectly.

9. No automated scraping/data gathering/messaging/spamming of our site. If you want to get some location data, just ask for it... We will freely give it over, no need to consume our bandwidth with automated bots. If your looking to message our members with spam, go to hell.

10. By using our site, you agree that you are over 18 years of age, or that your parent or guardian has reviewed this site in its entirety, and checks it every time before you access it AND has given you written permission to use this site. This will be updated, and you agree to follow the rules. You further agree to follow by any rules or guidelines thought up by the site owners. You also agree that YOU are well aware of your local laws, and that YOU are following them properly. That YOU will be responsponsible for any of your actions at any locations, regardless of where you found the info from.






About us
We had been playing with the idea for this site for years, but in June of 06 we actually got around to doing it. We love to see weird stuff, and we like road trips. We noticed that most sites that specialize in weird or haunted places lack some basic features that we wanted.
Examples:
  • Search stories/listings.
  • Membership.
  • Contacting other members.
  • Profiles.
  • Grouping.
  • Letting members submit media of each location.
  • Comments
  • Ratings.
  • Maps.
  • Member based moderation.


    Also, having a single page with thousands of listings in the same state, was a bit rough for us to use. Also we found it insanely time consuming to research all this information out there. Plus the lack of address's made it nearly impossible to pick 5 places in a rough area, get the locations, plan the trip, and complete it in 1 night.

    Thus the site was born... We have devoted ALL of our spare time for years now to researching these places, posting address's, and trying to make sure that any place listed, has an accurate description. Also, with the hand picked moderators in the site, we have superb quality over other sites. Thanks to the moderators, spam, and fake information is quickly flagged and removed, to guarantee that YOU don't waste your time.

    While we would LOVE to only have personal experiences posted on this site, it is impossible for us to check out every story.... It would take us a lifetime. So you will likely run into a few bunk places. But, that is part of being a 'ghost hunter' or 'investigator'. When/If that happens we STRONGLY encourage you to come on and let us know! make sure others don't waste their time as well.  And vice versa, if you see an awesome place, come on in, post your story, and your pictures! we would love to read it!
