Rules and Policies

The Administrators and Moderators of Forum are making every effort to keep this forum a friendly and productive place for all members. Mutual respect is within the guidelines by which the forum will be Administrated and Moderated. This respect is shown towards ALL users of the forum who will be treated with courtesy and in return members are expected to show the same respect and courtesy to the forum staff and other members.


It is of the utmost importance to comply with any reasonable request made by an Administrator or Moderator as they are guided by and adhere to the rules laid down by the forum guidelines. Examples may simply involve an edit to a post where it is seen to be made in anger or taunting/abusive language is used. Users who do not comply with a reasonable request will be reported to the Admin. or a Moderator who are at liberty to remove the post completely without further question.


Depending on the severity of the post and including argumentative/abusive, e-mails/PM's the user account may have a temporary ban enforced or 'restrictions' placed on the user's account until the matter can be resolved through a 'civil' approach. Trying to circumvent a restriction and or ban by re-registering with another user name or changing of an IP address will not be tolerated and in this case a permanent ban may be deemed necessary. This type of ban is very rare and in most cases will be avoided unless the intent of a user is obviously seen as disruptive and subsequently detrimental to other members of the forum.


The Administrators and Moderators respect a member's rights to request in the correct manner by PM or e-mail for the restriction or ban to be re-considered if the member feels in anyway they have been unfairly treated. The matter will be discussed openly with all staff to ensure that total fairness will be applied to the user account in question.


All Admin. and Moderators are here to help and assist the forum members in whatever way possible therefore remember to approach any staff with respect as abusive language and/or threats will not be tolerated at all.


The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing forum rules and policies. As a user you agree to any information you have entered on the Forum being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, the administrators and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
