Forum Rules

Post by niall »

If we find that you break any of these rules, your account may be disabled and your posting privileges removed. These rules are very basic and we hope that you read them fully . Thanks for your cooperation.
  • 1. No Graphic Material of either a macabre or pornographic nature. Racism and/or sick jokes is not permitted. Any posts or links to such content will not be tolerated.

    2. No Racism, No Threatening, No (citing) Victimization (via PM) or Hateful posts / Retaliation of any kind against a member, or group of members.

    3. No slagging off people of higher authority's spelling. We run this place, and hence we can ban you, so shut it.

    4. If one of your posts is edited by a mod/admin you may NOT change it again.

    5. No Flaming, Personal attacks such as flaming, instigating "flame bait", verbal abuse or mocking of members in forum posts are not tolerated. Such posts will be deleted on sight and moderated accordingly.

    6. No spamming. Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy, advertise or increase a member's post count. Resurrecting old forum posts is also not appreciated unless it serves a worthy cause to the forum. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.

    7. We require that members respect the decision of moderators. Threads and posts questioning the actions or decisions of forum moderations will be deleted on sight, and the appropriate action taken (up to and including forum bans) against the thread starter and/or participants. However, as a member you reserve the right to PM any administrator regarding action taken.

    8. We reserve the right to change or alter these rules at any time and an Administrator's word is final.

Please also note that we have no firm rule on swearing. We accept that sometimes swearing in posts can be considered appropriate - but not always. Please refrain from swearing where possible, as it does nothing but lower the tone of the forum. If use of swearing in a post comes into question, the decision of a moderator will be final.
