The website, the Forum and etiquette
Please do attempt to write briefly, but do try to avoid “text speak” as some people may not know what certain terms mean.
What follows in the “Rules for contributing” section may seem a little “over-the-top”, but it is crucial that we promote a good group spirit and everyone must respect the rules, if we are to achieve this.
Rules for contributing
By posting messages in the Forum you are agreeing to abide by the following “house rules”.
These rules exist so that everyone can get the best experience possible out of contributing. They aim to protect anyone who reads or contributes posts, and to help everyone have an informative and safe time.
If you come across any messages or threads that you are unhappy with, because you feel they break the rules, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep your contributions civil, tasteful and relevant. The aim is to provide a place in which conversations are constructive, interesting and informative.
Please don’t post something that’s abusive, threatening, harmful, racially offensive, or discriminatory in any other way. We recommend constructive discussion as being far more useful.
Swearing is not allowed.
Please don’t attempt to impersonate others. Everyone has a unique login-ID, so it is difficult to impersonate other people, but it’s rude and unacceptable to even try.
Only include suitable URLs in your contributions. Links to websites we consider unsuitable will be removed, so if you are considering contributing something that contains a URL, please make sure that it adds value and is of interest to the subject of the specific topic (any advertising will be frowned upon and probably lead to exclusion).
We reserve the right and will remove any threads and messages that we consider inappropriate.
We also reserve the right to exclude anyone from the Forum, at anytime, if they break the “house rules”.
Rest of the website
The rules are the same as for the Forum.
