Private messages are for the use of members to contact another member without displaying your message within the public content of the forum.

The private message section is not to be used for any illegal activity described within these Terms and Conditions. It is wholly and solely to be used to convey private messages of a general nature and must also not contain any abusive comments that could be considered harassment.

It must be known that administrators are able to see private messages. They will never be viewed by the administration except for the purpose of a routine spot audit or investigation of a complaint received. This will ensure the Terms and Conditions are adhered to.

Illegal Activity

Under no circumstances is any member to partake in or contribute in any way to illegal activity. This includes the use of the private messages system and the open forum. If it is found that any member is partaking in illegal activity within the confines of the forum the matter will be passed onto administration for investigation and implementation of the corrective action policy. The Admin team also reserves the right to pass on the information to the appropriate authorities if it deems necessary.

The only language in use on this forum is English. All correspondence from the Moderators and Administrators of this site will be in English. It is the responsibility of the member to request a translation if required.

Any post you make must be in English but you may accompany it with a translation to another language for certain purposes.

Abbreviations should not be used unless they are a standard abbreviation understood by most. If a post contains abbreviations or word shortenings you may be asked to modify it by a moderator.

Corrective Action Policy

We operate a notification system on this forum that is used to notify members should they not comply with the Terms and Conditions. We know that most members would not do this intentionally but sadly there will always be those who choose to ignore the rules.

The system uses a points system and the more points a member gets the more chance they stand of having their account temporarily suspended or in extreme cases permanently banned.

Notices

Information Notice.

This is issued for information only and is used to advise the member that they have breached a rule and that no further action will be taken at this time. A record is kept of the information notice and should this action be repeated a warning notice may be issued.

Warning Notice.

This is used when a member repeatedly breaches the forum Terms and Conditions. Under normal circumstances a warning notice will be issued after an information notice, however in certain circumstances the administrators reserve the right to administer a warning notice in the first instance. These warnings are scored from 1 to 5 with 5 being the most severe. These points are accumulated with each warning notice issued.

Each warning notice has an expiry date. Only after this date has passed will the points be removed from your record.

Suspension Notice

This is issued when a member has received a total of 5 points against their name. The length of suspension will be determined by the administrators depending on the severity of the incident. If a member is suspended more than once within the expiry period they may face permanent banning of their username. The administrators do reserve the right to temporarily or permanently ban a member on the first occurrence depending on the severity of the incident. This will also include the IP address of the user.

If any notice is to be issued, the recipient will receive this via private message and/or email. The moderators will also be informed of the issue of a notice.
