Forum Rules
« on: December 21, 2011, 10:31:25 AM »
The joining and continuation of your membership of this forum is conditional on agreeing to be bound by the following rules.....

Please conduct yourself with courteously and show respect to both members and staff on here at all times. Being verbally abusive or derogatory toward anyone, either on the open forum or via PM, will be deemed as bullying and will not be tolerated.  Also, comments or behaviour that is disruptive or is deemed to entice disharmony or arguments on the forum will not be tolerated.

Do not post any material or comments anywhere on this forum which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, racist, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive toward an individual's privacy or character, or other website/board, or in anyway otherwise a violation of any law whatsoever.

Do not display a username that is (or could be deemed to be) rude, racist, or offensive in any way.

Do not use an avatar that is (or could be deemed to be) rude, racist, or offensive in any way, or one that contains an image of a dead animal (whether real or animated).

Do not use a signature that is (or could be deemed to be) rude, racist or offensive in any way or one that contains an image of a dead animal (whether real or animated).

Do not post pictures of a dead animal (whether real or animated) on your profile page.

Do not post images of dead animals anywhere on the open forum, other than in the appropriate Hunting Pics section.

No multiple accounts. Anyone found to have made more than one account will have all of their accounts deleted.

No swearing or mock swearing, or attempting to by-pass the swear filter.

Power adjustment topics that are discussed on the open forum MUST relate to staying under the legal limit at sub 12ftlbs.

All posts are to be made in plain English, and not 'text' speak.

For the rules regarding trading on this forum, please read the rules in the relevant section.

Please report any member who you feel to be in violation of these rules to a Moderator or Site Admin immediately.

You can report a post which you feel breaks the forums rules by clicking on the 'report to moderator' text in the bottom right hand corner of the offending post.

Tolerance will be applied by forum staff, as always, but if conduct is considered inappropriate, action will be taken to either issue a warning, suspend posting abilities (either temporarily or permanently), remove offending material, expelled from this forum (either temporarily or permanently), or all, as they see fit depending on the severity of the offence.

If a member questions a staff member's decision, they are welcome to do so by email or private message to the staff member concerned, but discussion will not be entered into on open forum.

In the event of their being no satisfactory resolution to a dispute between a member and a member of staff, the member may appeal directly to the forum owner, again via email or PM, and never on open forum. Although the owner will make every possible effort to be fair to all concerned, in any dispute his decision is absolute and final.

The Site Owners, Administrators and Moderators will endeavour to keep all offending material off this forum, but on very rare occasions, some questionable posts may be visible for a very short time until dealt with.

Therefore it has to be accepted that all posts made on this forum solely expresses the views and opinions of the author and not necessarily those of the Webmaster, Site Owners, Administrators or Moderators (except for posts made by those people) and hence will not be deemed liable.

By agreeing to the forum rules, you will ensure that you will not post any messages that are in opposition of those rules, nor contravene any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the Webmaster, Owners, Administrators and Moderators of this forum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason as they see fit.

As a user, you agree to any information that you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the Webmaster, Administrator and Moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to that data being compromised.

This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any information you have entered, they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for forwarding a new password to you should you forget your current one).

Your membership on here is taken as an implication of your acceptance and agreement to all of the above.
