  • Members may not publicly argue a moderators decision. Any and all complaints should be directed at the moderator via PM, then, if not resolved to the site Admin via PM.

  • Although we are under no obligation to check, edit, moderate or correct any posts on the website we reserve the right to edit, amend or remove any posts, comments, submissions or other contributed content at the discression of the moderators and/or site owners without notice.
  • The Moderators run the Forums, they help make the rules, interpret them and decide when someone has broken them, however, they have no desire to do this continuously. Please don't behave in a way which would require them to be moderators full time.
  • If you are not a Moderator you do not make or enforce the rules, don't act like it. If you think someone is breaking the rules then report them to a moderator. It is their job to enforce the rules, not yours.
  • Where possible, if a moderator has participated in a thread, they will leave moderation of that thread to another moderator.
