PostSubject: Forum Charter- ***Please Read in FULL before Posting*** UPDATED    Thu Jul 08, 2010 9:39 pm

First and foremost this is a GAA Forum.

Absolutely no personal posts about players or officials private lives.

Also any over the top criticism will not be tolerated. And will be dealt with.

Maintain a friendly tone and be respectful when posting topics or replying to threads in every post you make.

No text speak, there are more then 160 characters available here so there is no reason to use it.

Please try to watch spelling and grammar as well as using paragraphs. Simple things like this make it a lot easier to read posts.

Please refrain from using all CAPITAL LETTERS, this is the Internet equivalent of shouting and can make posts difficult to read.

Bad language is unacceptable. This board is for discussion, not hurling abuse at others and it does nothing to promote an active discussion. No flaming, trolling or personal abuse. By anyone. First offence will result in a warning. Subsequent offences may result in bans or outright permanent bans. Posts containing offensive material will be edited by the moderators once we have them in place.

No personal attacks.
Debate the post, not the poster. Personal attacks are taken seriously and will be dealt with using whatever action is needed. If you think you are being attacked you should ask yourself why it is an attack. If it simply disagrees with your post and tells you that you are wrong, this is not an attack. Violent personal attacks and threats will result in a suspension or permanent banning, depending on the situation.


Examples:
"Your post is idiotic." - Not a personal attack.
"You are an idiot." - Mild personal attack, generally not a problem but try to avoid it.
"You are a " - Strong personal attack. Your post will be removed and you may be banned from the site.
"You are a ******** idiot... I wish death on you and a pox on your family!" - Violent personal attack. You will be banned from the site and have all offending posts removed.


Let's try to treat our fellow forum members with respect please!


Moderator decisions pertaining to the forum are final.
When a moderator or administrator makes a decision this choice is not up for public debate. If you have a problem with the choice made, PM or email that moderator or an administrator. If you create a post to question this choice chances are that post will be locked and you will be issued a warning.


Flaming a moderator for a decision publicly will most likely result in a warning or suspension, depending on the seriousness. Remember, flaming does not mean questioning!


This rule only applies to decisions involving moderation. Moderators participating in the thread do not have the final say and are considered normal members when posting. Argue and debate with them all you want.

No pornography.
This includes but may not be limited to pornography, sexually explicit pictures, writing, or other material whose primary purpose is to cause sexual arousal. This covers ASCII porn, /cyber logs, and links to pornography. This includes poster avatars and signatures.

Do not bump old posts without good reason.
If you're bumping an old post for a good reason (information was requested or the topic came up again) that is fine. If you are bumping an old post for no reason or simply to be funny, you are looking at a warning.


Watch your language.
Self-explanatory. If you're not sure whether the swearing you're about to do violates this rule, just assume it does. Profanity includes the most minor to the most vulgar. Modification of curse words also isn't allowed and those attempting to do so will be warned and/or banned.


No hate speech.
Anyone that insults people based on their race, gender, sex, sexual preference, religion, culture, or country of origin, or threatens them explicitly or implicitly is not allowed and may result in an immediate ban. This includes both fellow forum members and your fellow human beings in general.

User names and avatars.
Your avatar or user name may not contain explicit sexual images or links to porn or warez. If a moderator or administrator feels an image is inappropriate even though it may not fall under the above restrictions, it may be removed. Recreating an avatar after it is removed will result in either a warning or suspension.
Multiple accounts from the same user is not permitted. This may result in one or all of the accounts being deleted.

Although the administrators and moderators of kildaregaa.boardonly.com will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author only and the owner or Administrators of kildaregaa.boardonly.com will in no way be held responsible for the content of any message.

Thanks

Admin I welcome your charter on good behaviour on this site. On reading the post (disgrace to wear green) on page 4, comments by the last 2 posts have used bad language.after reading your rules, this is one of them. Why is their no action taken or is it rules for some people and not others.

Had a look and the only words you seem to be questioning are bollixology and hole.

Now, no offence but one is made up word and the other is a space in the ground.

Don't take things too seriously there realfone, just look after your own conduct and let the Admins look after the language.

Right lads and lassies, over the last week the number of posts that needed to be edited or deleted for one reason or another is just to much.

If you want to post on here try then act like the adult you are and if you are not old enough for that then have some respect for other posters.

If the current trend continues particularly from new members who seem to think they have cart blanch to say what they want then editing posts will be replaced by bans. This is not Hoganstand where idiots seem to thrive.

Debating points is what we are about but if you start personal abuse you'll be in trouble.
Warnings may be sent then again if it's bad enough you'll be gone. From calling somebody a fool to worse will engage the attention of Moderation which is something we do not want to do as it wastes our time as well.

You have been warned

Ogie, your point on the new members may have some credence, but there has been some nonsense posted by established members too.

Basically we want this place to be self moderating, in other words when I come in here I want to read about Kildare GAA in all it's facets and not have spend time editing posts and deleting threads because members can't control themselves.

How this forum progresses is up to it's members.

I agree completely Admin, totally up to the members really and most of the lads are good at keeping lads in check...


I was only being a smart arse, couldn't resist it!
