Terms of Service and Rules
Please take a few moments to read over the site rules.
It is your responsibility to know the rules of the site, and therefore you have no grounds for complaint if you break them and receive the relevant punishment for that rule break.
You are responsible for your own account and everything posted from it. Excuses like "It wasn't me who was logged on" will not be listened to. It is your account, look after the security of it.
Please also think about what you are doing before you post on here. If in any doubt whatsoever about the content of your post, then PM a staff member to check that it is fine to go ahead.
Anything posted on the site can be removed at staff discretion.
Please respect the site, the staff and the members and who knows, you may enjoy it.
Advertising... The site has very strict rules on advertising. Anyone wishing to advertise must first contact a member of staff to request permission. Staff will then discuss the request and give a decision. Anyone posting without prior permission may see their post deleted, and may lose the opportunity to advertise as a result.
Selling personal items on the site is strictly prohibited.
Discrimination... Discrimination of any sort is strictly prohibited anywhere on the site.This includes racism, sectarianism, sexism, religious discrimination, homophobia, and more. Anyone found to be discriminating in posts will face a ban from the site.
*NSFW* Prefix Tag.... This tag must be used when posting something containing nudity, or something which may shock or offend other members in it's detail. Failure to use these tags could result in the thread being deleted and/or the member receiving a ban from the site. Please also note it is the parents' responsibility to monitor their child's internet usage. A certain amount of "colourful" language may be on view on the site. It is also up to each individual whether or not they choose to open threads with this tag attached. If you don't like the look of the topic, or what may be contained in the thread, then don't open.
TAGS... Anyone found to be using the tags feature for the purpose of trolling or flaming will be dealt with in the same manner as they would if they were using comments within normal threads.
No Arguing with Staff... Please do not discuss staff decisions on the site. If you have a gripe about a staff decision then PM a staff member and it will then be discussed. DO NOT start discussion about staff decisions. This will simply be deleted and the creator could face action from staff.
No Flaming or Trolling Members... Do not flame or troll other members. If you feel offended by something they have posted, use the report button. While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
No Text Speak/Bad English... When posting on the site, use proper English that members can clearly understand, unless posting in a designated part of the forum for other languages.
Signature Allowance... Signature size allowance is as follows... Goldmembers and Staff allowance is 500x200 px and 100kb max, Regular member allowance is 300x100px and 50kb max. No advertising or animated images allowed in signatures. For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.) Image OR text in signatures, not both. Please also note that avatars and signatures which are aimed at advertising for political or armed forces groups will not be allowed. Signatures containing quotes from other members will be classed as Trolling, and therefore are not allowed.
Drugs... The discussion of drugs as a topic is allowed on the site, however no talk of purchasing/selling is allowed.
This discussion is not to gloat about experiences, ie whats good stuff or bad stuff etc. The site wont be held responsible for anyone who takes it upon themselves to go and "experiment" in the use of illegal drugs.
Serious discussion only.... not braggers paradise.
No Pornography... Do not post pornographic material/links to pornographic material anywhere on the forum. This includes any private sections of the site, The Huddle etc. Full frontal nudity will not be tolerated. Anyone doing so will have their post removed and could face a possible ban.
Spamming... Spamming is not allowed, please be thoughtful about what you post, look around the forum to see if a thread has already been started. Before posting, please ask yourself the following question: "Am I making a post which is either funny, informative, or interesting on any level?" If the answer is no, don't post it! Staff will merge or close duplicate threads or threads that do not add to the forum.
Rangers Fans Forums... Do not copy/paste direct links to any Rangers fans forums, or quote from any posts which appear on these forums. Our own members are our priority, and we don't want them being banned from here for reacting to something posted elsewhere. We would also ask that certain blogs etc are checked with staff before posting them.
Please note that failure to adhere to this may result in a temporary ban from the site.
Duplicate accounts... Members will only be allowed to create one account.
In exceptional circumstances, and with prior approval from Admin, secondary accounts may be accepted from the same IP. Under this ruling, should one account be banned, then all accounts under this IP will also be banned.
Creating a new account to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to both accounts being permanently banned.
Please note that rules can be changed at any time, and staff may also Moderate stuff which is not listed above.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being Temporarily Banned from the site, then you have one post to appeal in the Sin Bin. Staff will then discuss your appeal and give a final answer.
Do not create any further posts/threads until your ban has expired, then you can request reactivation. Any further threads created will be ignored and deleted.
