1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    With now 30 'For Sale' threads awaiting approval, it seems a good time to remind members that without your details correctly filled in & the request to add a picture with your user name alongside the item acted on, these potential sales threads will very soon be deleted.

    If you can't be bothered neither can I ..... pm's are sent asking for action why not act .... :(

    I will back Tadpole up here - no ifs, buts or maybes; if you're sent a PM by the moderation team asking for the correct pictures / contact details / price etc, we will not approve your ad until you supply them.

    IMO, they shouldn't appear until these criteria are met. Everybody can read, and if they can't provide simple information, well then tough poo!

    Should keep the Mod's happy and less work to do.

    I was referring to when they used to be approved pending correct addition of the dated pics, been a while since i've advertised for sale, so I guess things have changed.

    Ah, I see... That's something we only do in certain circumstances, which are getting more infrequent these days.

    Rules are rules. Follow them or its tough sh##e.

    Most people who use the forum should at least have seen the * approved if you add your name/ date on paper in your ad * which usually means they have registered properly on the forum with an address so hopefully to avoid those scamming bstards...... its easy :up:


    Sorry its been a long day :)

    I have just deleted seven threads posted without the necessary pictures / seller details. The users who posted them were contacted via PM by a moderator and the missing items or information requested but no reply or additions received. As each thread was submitted a week ago at the earliest and no effort had been made to comply with the sales rules, they were removed.

    I will be doing this every couple of days from now on.
