Although the Administrator and Moderators of CPUK Forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, they can not be held responsible for message content. All posted messages express the views of the author. The owner or the representatives of CPUK Forum may remove, edit, move, or close topics that are not in accordance with these rules. The forum is moderated by volunteers who do their best to keep the forum a friendly place. Their job is to keep the forums productive and positive and their decisions are final. They are only human and sometimes mistakes are made. Abusive attacks via e-mail, Private Message or in any other way against the Administrator or any Moderator is wholly unacceptable and will result in an immediate ban. Any grievances should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can be sorted out in a civilised manner.
CPUK is not the average forum. We are proud of the fact that while growing fast we continue to remain extremely friendly to both new and established members. When posting messages to the forum please keep the following points in mind:
1]> Do not post messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, racist, hateful, threatening, or otherwise offensive. Vigorous debate is encouraged, actively offensive behaviour is not. Please use good judgement when choosing user names, avatars, or images to post. Inappropriate content will be removed without notice.
2]> Personal attacks, rudeness, 'Flame Wars', insults to others, or arguments will not be tolerated. Challenge others' points of view and opinions, but do so respectfully and thoughtfully. Any member who threatens anyone on the forum, via Private Message, email, or other means will be banned immediately and without notice.
3]> Before starting a new thread, please make use of the forum 'Search' facility. Your question may have been answered before.
4]> Do not post the same topic in more than one forum and consider an appropriate forum before posting your question. Take note of the forum descriptions on the main forum page.
5]> Use the 'Feedback' forum for forum related questions. The Moderators receive a large number of messages containing questions that may be answered on the forum and we do not have time to answer them all, Private Messages should only be used for issues that cannot be discussed in the public forums.
6]> Commercial advertising or selling may be allowed in the forums. If you are interested in advertising or selling, contact the forum owner at email@example.com prior to posting. Personal 'auction type' sales are not allowed in the Sales & Wants forums.
7]> Please do not ask questions and leave the forum after you have received the answer. Try to contribute something to the community that we have built here and help it continue to thrive and grow.
8]> Piracy and linking to pirated material is strictly prohibited.
9]> Posted images should be of a reasonable size. A maximum of 750 x 750 pixels is suggested. Larger images may be linked off-site.
