You all know there has been a lot of spam about recently and we don't really need it.

I've suggested to bert that he deletes anything he sees as inappropriate as soon as he sees it, and I'll do the same.

Now - on with our regular programming.... 8#)

Pictures, Read me first!

Pictures / Attachments

Please do NOT post/add pictures larger than 600x600 pixels.
  • * It will mess up the layout of the forum
    * Costs too much of my diskspace and bandwidth. (non of those are cheap)
    * Larger than 600 will not fit on everyone's screen.
Oversized pictures will be removed. If your lucky I'll resize them for you. You can use any program to resize pictures. Windows Paint, Photoshop or The GIMP (it's free).

Just felt that this should be highlighted again. The normal moderation action would be a temporary ban, followed by a permanent ban, should there be a re-occurrence.

Yet again I've had to delete thread content as I found it too negative ( personal opinion I'll admit )

In light of recent events perhaps I need a more structured approach to this, so anyone posting on the main forum or sending PM's contrary to any of the rules is liable to an initial one week ban without any notice what so ever.

After that week, a reoccurrence will earn a one month ban ....

After the one month ban, another transgression ( in my opinion ) will earn a permanent ban.
