No swearing or racist statements, sexual innuendo, explicit language relating to racist, religious or any other insulting comments.

Any posts/avatars or pictures that show violence, pornography, drugs or conflict with any other rule are strictly forbidden.

 

 

NOTE...PERSISTANT OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED FOR A LENGTH OF TIME WHICH CAN BE UP TO LIFE, DEPENDING ON THE SEVERITY OF THE INFRACTION AS DEEMED BY THE ADMINISTRATORS AND MODERATORS.

 

For a full definition of the rules and site usage hints and smallprint, see below or go to http://www.carp.com/terms.php for full Terms & Conditions members agreed to when signing up for Carp.com.

 

 

 

 

We don´t want to bother you with harsh restrictions and the like but there are some simple things that make life a lot easier for you, the other forum members and the mods.

 

1. Read the rules of this forum, and keep them in mind when posting. Most trouble with the mods or other members is caused by not holding to these rules.

 

2. Use the search engine as often as possible!

There´s already a lot of information on here and you can learn a lot without posting yourself. Some members may get annoyed by answering the same question over and over again. A tip for the Search facility, when you type in the search term, click "search all terms", you can even specify which particular forum you want to search for posts in.

 

3. Be polite and friendly in your posts. For example DON´T SHOUT, so keep the CAPS LOCK Off

 

4. Check your spelling! It´s hard to read your posts if you don´t. For this matter there´s the edit button in the right corner of every post.

 

5. Contribute to this forum. This means don´t only ask questions although good questions are a contribution but answer questions if you´ve the knowledge.

 

6. If a post or thread you read is against the rules of carp.com report it to the mods. Therefore every post has the report this post button in the corner.

Even if you think that a post is in the wrong place or is incorrect then report it (a "click" button to the right of the post). We would rather have report post notifications than a bunch of insults flying.

 

 

 

Swearing will not be Tolerated on the Forum.

 

I have removed and edited posts to remove [censored] language. There is no need for it. If you cannot post without swearing then simply do not post!

As for Swearing, I don't care if you use asterisks, @, figures etc to replace a letter. The Implication is there and as far as I'm concerned counts as Swearing.

 

If you cannot post without swearing then simply do not post!

 

The post will simply be removed and the Member who swears will be BANNED INSTANTLY.

 

I have also been removing Posts and Threads that are containing Text Talk.

 

The reason for Text Talk is a Lack of space on a mobile Phone Text screen. There is no such limit on Carp.com replies/posts.

It makes a post easier to understand if it is written in plain ENGLISH, with NO TEXT TALK. Ok spelling mistakes happen: typing too fast, unsure of a word.

 

Please note that any posts which have TEXT TALK in that I see will be REMOVED.

Then there is the most important part of Carp.com

 

HAVE FUN! :D

SWEARING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED IN ANY FORM

If you cannot post without swearing then simply do not post!

I will not make any more warnings or edits. The post will simply be removed and the Member who swears will be BANNED INSTANTLY.

I will not make any exceptions, IT IS AN INSTANT BANNING OFFENCE> and I have done so.

That includes trying to hide it behind asterisks or other digits

If you see a post that is including [censored] language, DO NOT RESPOND, report it to the Mods using the "Report Post " button on each post and then leave it. Responding in kind will see more than 1 person banned, there is simply no need.


If a post or thread you read is against the rules of carp.com report it to the mods. Therefore every post has the report this post button in the lower right corner.

The above post was by Nick - the admin of the site.

I have been very lenient, showing lots of discretion -  If I were to take Nicks stand, as above, bans would have been issued!

 

From now on, I am just going to delete posts containing swearing or 'hidden' swearing. No messages, no edits, no apologies. I will add warning points onto the offenders profile. If a set number are reached, it will automatically result in a ban.

Gents,

Please, I do NOT like removing or deleting posts despite what you may think.

 

If a post offends you, do not react or reply, ignore it, don't comment. There is a report post button, hit it. I and the other Mods would much rather deal with a spurious report than have to deal with insults, swearing and arguments on a thread, which often end up in bans for people, who are usually constructive members.

 

Spurious: an alarm that reacts correctly to an 'intrusion', but which due to the situation may be a false report. It is easy to deal with these :wink:
