Admin Change/Forum Guidelines

Recommended Posts


During the forum downtime (while moving servers and getting the forum back-up loaded onto the new server) there's been a change in the admin team. Deego and Tontastic have now chucked it and myself and two others have taken over. A big thanks to both Deego and Tontastic for their help setting everything up.

 

Below are the guidelines for using the forum, breaking these will result in suspensions and bannings;

 

1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promotion in the forums

 

These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.

Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

 

2. Do not post copyright-infringing material.

 

Please do not post copyrighted material. This includes copy and pasting or screen-shotting material from media outlets such as newspapers. Copy and paste the link to the material instead. 

 

3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links, videos or images.

 

Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes pictures, videos and links posted by users.

 

4. Personal information 

 

Posting personal information about another user on this forum is prohibited. This includes (but is not limited to) names, addresses, phone numbers, pictures of users (or their families).


 

The moderators' decisions on any matters are final and haranguing them on anything will not change their minds, although we intend to have a relaxed approach to moderating the forum.

 

If there's any questions you PM any of the Admins or e-mail greenockmortonforum@gmail.com.

 

Enjoy!

It's been brought to our attention that posters on another forum are claiming to be banned from this one. Having checked their accounts, there doesn't appear to be a problem with them, and we have no records of any PMs or e-mails enquiring as to why they were banned.

 

Since taking over the forum last year, anybody who has been banned by ourselves has been informed of this.

 

If anyone has any problems logging into the forum, or using it, please e-mail us at the address posted in the original message on this thread, or alternatively PM the Admin Team.

 

If you choose to PM us, please remember to cc. Admin, Admin2 and Admin3 into your message. This should hopefully lead to a speedier resolution.

 

There are some bans from the previous moderating team that will not be lifted.

As you will have noticed, there are now advertisements above and below the forum content. We have arranged this with an external ad company. If any ad on the forum blocks sight of any of the content, please email me a screenshot to greenockmortonforum@gmail.com and we will get the code sorted.

 

Thanks guys.

Hi all, apologies for the outage over the last few days, but as you can see we are now on our new domain name. I’d like to thank everyone who helped with the process of the move, and all our contributors for their patience over the last few weeks as we made the changes. Everything should be back to normal over the next few days, and please PM or email us if you discover any technical glitches.

 

Cheers,

Admin.

Hi guys, 

 

Apologies for the issues with the ads. The company that provide the ads have had difficulties modifying the ads to meet the new GDPR standards. We've been sent the new coding so the forum should be back to normal in the next few hours. 

 

If you are still having issues then e-mail me; greenockmortonforum@gmail.com.
