Maintaining the Peace

A member breaking the rules of the forum may be warned or even immediately suspended depending upon the severity of the transgression.
The Administration team will review the severity of any transgression and determine if the member should be permanently removed, including posts.
The decision to warn, suspend or ban an individual will not be made public but communicated by one of the administrators via Private Message to the user.

Members Signature:

URLs may form part of a member's signature.
The URL is to be limited to the minimum size required for it to function and not be embellished by style, size or comment.
The URL must not point to a deemed or perceived commercial website. Admin shall remain the sole arbiter.
Admin over time may contact and advise relevant members of the requirement to edit their signatures and/or the need for judicious use of commercial links or references within their posts.

Note to all:

All members can be active in how the forum runs; if you see an issue with a post or topic, you can raise the issue with Admin, Moderator, or C&M staff and it will be addressed – confidentially.

Admin note: Sambob view counter 12518 and Sinbad counter 769 at time of update. Valid count = current + 12518 - 769
