Forum Rules


All the other forums seem to have rules, so I thought we'd better have some.

Rules:

1/ Be nice.

Cant think of any others emoticon

Re: Forum Rules


Dave, I think your rules list seems pretty comprehensive.

But to add to it, I personally would like to see no further use of the 'F' word and the 'C' word on the forum as I feel they don't convey the feelings of exasperation / pissedoffedness / hopelessness / sheer anger when they appear in text.

These words are better saved for use in hand to hand combat, and remember - they don't make them anymore so use sparingly.

Waddya reckon?? emoticon

I agree, but that might be covered by rule 1 emoticon

Re: Forum Rules


Not necessarily.
For example, someone might say,
"What the f*** is that??"

To my mind it's a waste of a perfectly good expletive, better used against the local teenagers followed by the word 'off'.

Or just used on its own after a particularly good night out with the beer in Simon's field...

Re: Forum Rules


dave can you put into the forum somehow certain words that would come out as other words? On one of my old car club forums i put all the swear words into the filter and gave them alternative words, so when anyone typed !@#$ it came out F@#+,, ect ect. i think some times people need to type these words but i do think its not very nice for some people to se them wrote down in front of them. Maybe a swear filter that changes the words would be a better sollution and then wouldnt need policing?? emoticon
