|Forum Rules - PLEASE READ!|
We donít want too many rules here, but there are certain things that we do not want happening on this forum.
We are very liberal with the language which is used on this forum and have filters in place to replace some words. We do ask, however, that you use proper English and not text speak, e.g. ur gr8, etc. Please also do not use all capital letters as this appears as though you are shouting.
Personal insults will not be tolerated. These do happen in joking ways and are often accompanied by the relevant smilies, but try to remember that some people are more sensitive than others. Posts which contain insults, that are obviously intended as insults, will removed by Moderators or Admin. Disagreements on things are to be expected as we are not all the same, nor do we live in the same areas; therefore we will have different opinions on things. Debates can result in useful information at times, as long as tempers are not allowed to flare up. <b>Due to the theme of the forum, most of us are going through some very stressful and trying times. Try to keep an awareness of this when posting and be respectful to your fellow members.</b>
This is a DEMOCRATIC forum. It was created for its members, and those members have a say in how it is operated.
* If you have a problem with something, mention it to an Admin or Moderator.
* If you have a problem with a post, report it.
The 'Report'button is not just for seriously bad posts, you can use this facility to advise of anything about the post which you feel warrants checking, or even to advise of a GOOD post that deserves highlighting. When you click the <i>'Report'</i> button, you will be given the chance to write a comment. Your name will only be seen by the Moderators or Admin.
Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted.
We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this board. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately.
We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this board to post any material which is knowingly false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or otherwise violative of any law.
You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this board. References to other people's work should be given where appropriate.
Any spamming or advertising will be removed immediately, so please don't waste our time or yours by attempting to post any. Please also refrain from hot-linking to movie or other large files as they use up our bandwidth very quickly.
Whilst realising that we have a lot of members in common with other forums, we do pride ourselves on being a separate entity and would, therefore, appreciate it if all of our members would refrain from comparing information, screen names, etc., or relating to, or naming other sites.
All of these rules apply to PMs and emails as well and if any breach is reported, we will have no hesitation in banning the offender/s.
Lastly, please be considerate of other members: keep personal chat to PMs or emails, try to post in the appropriate forum or thread for the subject you wish to discuss, and treat others as you wish to be treated.
Above all ... have fun!
