    Exclamation Forum Rules

    Note from Moderator:

    Not every potential misuse of the board can possibly be covered in these 'formal' rules, so please use common sense and act in the 'spirit of the rules'. 'Act as you would face to face' is a generally useful guideline for good forum behaviour. If you think your action is likely to cause a punch in the mouth, it's probably not a good idea to do it. Banter and good-natured high jinks are, of course, encouraged.



    Forum Rules & Disclaimer

    The term ‘The Forum’ used in these rules means and refers to the Notts County Mad message board entitled ‘Views from The Kop’ and any other forums or sub-forums which may be created from time to time on the Notts County Mad site.

    Anyone in breach of the Forum rules will be liable to be banned from posting to the Forum. You are not allowed to re-register if you are banned.

    Forum Rules

    Threads/posts considered to be offensive to other members or non-members, or considered as bad taste may be edited/deleted by one of the Forum moderators.

    Abusive Comments.
    Members may not use the Forum to abuse any other member of the Forum. If a member does abuse another member then they will be issued a warning, along with details of why they have been warned. If a member repeats the offence, this will result in a permanent ban.
    If however, you feel that you have been unfairly treated, then contact the Administrator, who will review the situation.

    Discrimination.
    Discrimination is not tolerated on the Forum. Discrimination can take the form of the use of specific words or phrases or can be in the form of a general attitude towards an individual or group of people. For example, making a statement that all black people are criminals is discrimination on the basis of race, is illegal and is unacceptable. Discrimination can be on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation or political persuasion.

    Age Range.
    The Forum is open to users aged 18 or over, as per FootyMad’s Terms of Use. Unfortunately, as on any online forum, underage users may gain access, therefore posts need to be respectful. No images or URL of a pornographic nature are welcome and will be removed. Bad Language needs to be kept to a minimum. If a post is found to contain this, then moderators can edit/delete the post and are encouraged to do so.

    Usernames.
    If a member is found to have multiple accounts, then these accounts may be removed or suspended.

    Avatars.
    Members are given the ability to create their own Avatar. These need to be decent and adhere to the general principles of the Terms of Use. Copyrighted pictures are not to be posted onto the Forum, unless the poster owns the copyright, or the owner has provided permission to use the image in the public domain.

    Warnings.
    Warnings will be issued if a member breaks these simple rules or causes a disruption to the Forum. Warnings can be issued for the following...

    Personal Insults
    Inappropriate Strong Language
    Racist Comments
    Spamming
    Flaming


    In serious cases, a warning will not be appropriate and the account will simply be suspended.

    Complaints.
    If a member has a complaint against another member/moderator/admin, or a post/thread, the member should contact a member of the admin team using the complain/report links throughout the site and under each post. Complaints made publicly on the Forum will be removed. Failure to do so in the correct manner may result in you receiving a warning.

    Suspensions.
    Moderators have the power to suspend your account without consulting the Administrators of the Forum. If you wish to appeal against this decision you must contact the Administrator.
