Rules updated 14 October 2013

1. Do not flame, abuse, or insult another user Arguments that go beyond reasonable debate will be removed from the forum and your membership could be be suspended or removed. This includes NAME AND SHAME for any reason

Most people already knew not to do this but we are seeing some creep in that are not about copyright so have added this to the top rule

Now the rules are nicely linked at the top of the forum on the front page, I have made it easy at a glance to see what the rules are, quickly

I have also added the Good Members to this thread as it stands so far


Please read

Note.. we will not discuss action taken with any other member than the one concerned.


Update 21 Jan 14

3. No spamming, trolling or flooding These are sure ways to lose your voice in the forums (What is a troll)
No numerous links in signatures on posts. We will look on that as spamming. Your name is acceptable


Update 24 Jan

Signatures on posts may include a name and a link, up to 50 characters each, including spaces. No images


12. We now allow four new THEMED threads a week which are kept open for one week. If you would like to run one of those themed threads for a week, please contact one of the mods (linked at the top of this page) to have your name added to the list. Tell them what the theme will be. All themed posts must also have descriptions to go with the images and not just a post with an image


The rules have been simplified.
