PostSubject: Forum Rules (PLEASE READ)   Fri Oct 01, 2010 2:14 pm

Please read this as by making use of the forum you are acknowledging that you have read, understood, and agree to abide by the rules of this forum as laid out below.
Check back regularly, as we will be updating/amending as the forum grows, in an effort to keep as up to date as possible.

We are always keen to hear new ideas for enhancing and promoting the forum. These should be forwarded by PM to any member of the administration or via the site feedback section, for evaluation by the moderators and administration prior to any possible public announcement.

It is our intention that the forum be a place for fun, information, advice and lighthearted enjoyment; this should not however come at the cost of ignoring the rights and sensibilities of others.

Moderators will always endeavour to inform of their actions, either on a thread, by PM, or email. This is NOT a guarantee, and if this does not happen a polite PM will usually in these circumstances clear up any confusion. Notification however, for a multitude of reasons will not always be immediately possible. Moderators are volunteers helping in their own time. Non notification is not grounds for complaint or abuse.

Prime Language of the board:
ENGLISH, any posts posted in any other language may be deleted. This covers, but is not limited to, posts made in slang or leet/hacker language.

Activity that is not permitted:

1.The use, or misuse of any member account by any other person is expressly forbidden.
Please ensure you keep all password security for your account safe, as you are entirely responsible for any, and all accesses, posts or messaging made with it. Any occurrences of this nature will result in suspension of access to all registered parties involved.

2. Possible slanderous/libelous claims, of any description. If you experience a difficulty with a company, your first recourse is to that company itself, (give them the opportunity to settle the matter with you first). We will endeavour to help in any way we can, but under no circumstances make any angry/ flame, revenge posts on the forum, we are legally responsible for anything that is published on the pages of this Forum/Website, and it does not intend to face any lawsuits on behalf of any unsubstantiated threats or abuse to 'respectable' companies.

3. FAO threads - we've got a perfectly good pm system for it, (These may be removed without notification)

4. Abusive, political, or negatively racial comments through threads, private messages or e-mail. No posts/links of a sexist, explicit (with exception of the over 18's section), or racist nature.

5.Using pornographic, sexist pictures or profanity,or any picture intended to insult, ridicule or aggrieve whatsoever in any avatar/ signature, or post. Any such postings will be removed, and acted upon accordingly. (What you may find acceptable, others may not, think before you post).
All parts of this forum (with exception of the over 18's section) should remain suitable for viewers of any age.

6.This is not a dating/flirting agency, any posts of this type, or that degenerate into this (Or appear to be going to) will be closed immediately, and any subsequent posts of a similar nature will be removed.

7. Using the forums as a personal chat room. As there is a chat feature provided at the bottom of the site for this use.

8. No advertising in posts, threads, profiles, or avatars on the general forums of personal sale items, companies/products, forums, or clubs. Please use the "Marketplace" area for these.
Any company wishing to offer a member's discount may apply to the administrator for permission to enable them to inform forum members of special offers.

9. No posts touting for interest/visits, hits, votes, sign-ups or users for other forums, clubs, sites or companies without obtaining prior permission from admin, and no links to 'content unsafe sites' whatsoever.

10. Use of swearing/ profanity in any form. (be it by posting, or linking to)
This Forum is used by people of all ages, and all parts will remain suitable for viewers of all ages. This is with the exception of the over 18's section of the forum.
Failure to exercise self moderation when posting will result in removal of posts/reprimand, or even suspension of access. Be considerate, and think what you post before you post it, and there should be no problems.

11. Use of the Marketplace section to directly advertise goods. You are only allowed to link to your own website/facebook page/ebay adverts etc. We do not accept ANY liability for items bought/sold from/to members, it is up to you to decide whether a potential buyer/seller is trustworthy.

12. Misplacing of threads. Please endevour to help us with this one. Yes, you may get more views in the 'general' forum, but you may actually get the help you want faster by posting in the section where someone of experience may be browsing.

13. Unnecessarily large signatures/fonts, Please exercise a little restraint in this department. Any signature seen as unnecessarily long, or large will be removed without notice by the forum administrators.

14. Use of multiple forum accounts is not allowed, if you want your username changed , contact a moderator or the administrator for help.

15. Use of any members pictures without prior consent is strictly prohibited, and may result in a ban.

Any problem or disagreement with decisions/opinions, do not make a 'flame/rant' post, (or indeed any kind of forum post about it) this will not enhance your case and WILL be removed. If persistent will result in suspension of account to restore order to the forum.

Instead contact those that can get you an explanation, or help directly. Contact one of the forum administrators/moderators by PM or email.


We have tried to keep the rules of this forum as simple and jargon free as possible, therefore there should be no excuse for breeching these rules.
