The Rules:

There are few restrictions on the use of the forum and only some simple rules to follow:-

• Postings may not contain illegal content nor include profanity, swearing or obscenity.

• Postings may not be used for advertising purposes nor to deliver spam. This includes use for 'fly posting' of commercial events.

• Postings may not reveal personal information about the poster, or others, other than name, which must be their normal name.

• Images must be your own and not subject to third party copyright unless written permission has first been granted by the third party.

Postings or private messages which are found to include derogatory or insulting material, whether overt or by innuendo or which are submitted for the purpose of commercial gain, personal criticism or vilification, whether of another user or a third party that is not a user, will be deleted and the facility will be permanently withdrawn from the originator of the material.

If you feel that any posting or private message falls into this category please contact Michael Jordan or the forum moderator.


Pseudonyms are not permissable on this forum. Applications must include the normal name or identity of a person.

Please note that in view of the number of recent 'hoax' requests for registration, applications which include pseudonyms will now be deleted without further notice.


To insert an image into a posting, look towards the bottom of the posting page and you will see 2 buttons marked 'Options' and 'Upload attachment'. Select 'Upload attachment'. In the box marked 'Filename' select the source on your hard drive, CD drive etc. of the image you want to upload, add any caption comments you choose and click 'add this file'.

The decision of the moderator shall be final!
