This code of conduct has been drawn up with contributions from all in the Admin/Moderation team, so we are all in agreement on this.
It is being posted here for the sole reason that we are all registered already so are unlikely to visit the above thread.
Healthy debate/discussion is encouraged on this forum. Unlike some forums we don't have a blanket ban on religion and politics but any material which constitutes libel, defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Please use common sense when posting. We all know that some of the topics talked about are by their very nature divisive, but we ought to be able to discuss things in a mature and sensible fashion by respecting everybody’s right to their own opinion. Perhaps it would be a good idea if people made more use of emoticons to show the intention of the post as that's causing problems too - folks being ironic\funny and others taking them seriously.
* Spam / Advertising:
Please do not spam or advertise, except for music related items such as bands, venues , gig guides, musical equipment etc. Please don’t send chain letters or operate pyramid schemes. If anyone wants to advertise something and is unsure of whether it's allowed or not, please contact any moderator for advice.
* Offensive Content:
Please don’t use material that is sexually obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory. Nude pictures of both sexes and topless (bare breasted) pics of women are prohibited. Sexual text content is also prohibited. However, 'pin-up' type pics including cleavage, legs and bare chests (male) are allowed, if they were not we wouldn't be able to show a great many album covers or red carpet pics from the CMA award shows.
* Illegal Content:
Please don’t provide or ask for information on how to illegally obtain or provide software or music.
Posting a thread in more than one forum is annoying. Please, only post it once in the correct forum. If you are unsure of where to post it, please contact a moderator for advice.
* Signature Size:
In order to avoid annoyance, please try and keep signatures to a moderate size. The signature should never be bigger than the message.
* Copyright and ownership:
Comments & forum messages are owned by the poster. Members are entirely and solely responsible for their posts. Moderators will delete posts without warning if they deem it necessary.
