Welcome to Steelmenonline.co.uk
Sorry about the rules but we must have a few in place.
1. Threads should be made in the appropriate forum, any off topic threads posted ... will be moved by the Mods or Admins to more appropriate forums.
2. Members are encouraged to avoid multiple posts on identical topics in the same forum. Multiple posting splinters discussion on a topic and its best that only one thread is used for a popular topic. Sometimes when two identical threads posted at the exact same time (which can happen immediately after a match, goal or after a news conference) then the Mods or Admins may close or merge some of these threads if there is little or no reply to it so as to keep discussion to one thread.
3. Threads which degenerate into long drawn out abusive slagging matches between members will ultimately be closed.
4. Rascist, sexist and homophobic remarks are not tolerated and will be deleted, and the member(s) responsible will be dealt with accordingly
5. Consistent and frequent abusive conduct towards other members is not allowed and members guilty of continuous abusive conduct will be warned by the Mods or Admins. However, everyone is entitled to a second chance and banning members is an absolute last resort.
6. Steelmen Online is open to all ages and is used by members from their workplace, therefore posts need to be respectful. Please take this into consideration when posting images on the board. Members are not permitted to have images of a pornographic nature in their profile, and if a Member's Profile is found to contain this, then the Mods or Admins may decide to edit/delete the profile. No pornographic links or images depicting genetalia are to be allowed.
7. Posters that spam or continually wind up posters of a particular board will result in their access to the board being removed (nb - please note these do NOT have to be personal insults)
8. Signature amendment below
9. Keep your Avatar and sig images an appropriate size please, you dont need to stick a poster in there, 100 by 100 is about the biggest an avatar should need to be. Sig amendment below.
10. a. Piracy is against the law - please do not post up codes or links to any copyrighted material either on this site or any other - this includes torrents.
b. Anything that you don't want the whole world to see - use your PM system (obviously this excludes the above )
11. Please type legibly in plain English. No one expects your grammar and punctuation or spelling to be perfect, but please don't use text speak. It's pointless when using a keyboard and is frustrating and difficult to read for other members. If you use text speak, be prepared to have your post deleted.
Rules amendment 5th September 09:
