  • The Forum Rules ~ New version

    This version of the rules 30/11/09 supersede former versions.

    The forum rules:

    1. The forum is a “family friendly” forum, therefore all words and content should be suitable for children.
    2. Treat others as you would wish to be treated.
    3. No personal attacks, keep debates about opinions. Flaming is not tolerated on this site and could result in banning. Name calling is not acceptable.
    4. No posting URL’s until you have 25 posts. This includes URL’s in disguise eg. Dot co dot uk. The 25 post rule also applys to being able to ask for a website review.
    5. Try to stay on topic (if the thread is about cards, then keep the thread about cards. Start a new thread for new topics.)

    1. No spamming or unauthorized advertising of goods for sale etc. This includes private messaging without permission to advertise something.
    2. Advertising any forum, be it crafts or otherwise related is not allowed in either posts, pm’s or signatures. Such links will be removed from posts or signatures at the discression of the mod/ admin team.
    3. Signatures are limited to a small font, a maximum of four links and will be edited by moderators and admin if they take up too much space or include non craft related links.
    4. All signature links must be crafts related. (any non craft related signature should not be added until approval has been sought from the moderators or admin.)
    5. If you wish to advertise your site or products, you have 4 choices:
    · email or pm 0103media for the advertising rates
    · Add your site to the directory linked to this site This includes adverts on the forums right hand side
    · Add your site to your signature and then give great advice and help to people on the forum. Your reputation will advertise your site.
    · Go elsewhere if you wish to spam.
    6. You may advertise craft fairs based in the UK. The fair must be recruiting crafters and not merely advertising it’s presence. A single thread in the craft fairs section is all that is allowed. (the adverts will be subject to moderation if it is felt that they are not relavent or fall foul of other forum rules.)
    7. You may not advertise any product for sale. You can however show your latest creations in the my project section.

    1. Creation of duplicate membership accounts is not allowed. Duplicate accounts are often associated with bullying, spamming or other negative behaviour.

    How we deal with rule breaks:
    We use whats called a infraction system that offers a yellow and red cards. Yellow being a warning and Red being a temporary ban normally 10days. Many times we try and post in public regarding low level rule breaks to help new members vs a infraction. Infraction a recording and repeat offenders will be permanently banned from both and

    ADDITIONAL RULES: These rules are not exhaustable, and may be added to at any time in the interest of the crafts forum.

    If you feel this limits the site and/or your experience then please email / private message me or any of the mods..
