To the FE;There seem to be several new people using the forum lately who don't know the"rules" of posting,as witness some of the sarcastic replies recently.Whilst new members are always welcomed of course,said sarcastic replies just clog up the column,and do nothing to help those who want advice. Perhaps it's time for a reminder from yourself?
Funnily enough FE did just that only recently. The thread that ensued suggested that the "guidelines" should be supplied to all new people who register and there should also be a link on the site or forum home page. Unfortunately there are some, fortunately few who enjoy spoiling it for others.
Hello Andsome & anskyber,thanks for your replies,I'm pleased someone agrees,although I was unaware of FE's recent thread.Perhaps it's now time for the regular contributors to the forum to ask FE to do just that and supply all new people with guidelines when registering? Adding something similar to a EULA,so that if someone does abuse the"rules"on more than a set number of occasions,they can then be effectively barred from the forum?
Please don't add fuel to the flames. FE is astute and quick to delete any unhelpful threds and posts. Use the "Contact Forum Editor" at the top, when you feel someone needs telling and you think FE hasn't seen it yet.
There can only be one arbiter and that is FE.This forum has had it's share of unwanted posts over a long time, all have disappeared under out present FE, and please remember this is a PC advisor Forum run by them for the good of all.
Diemmess,Hertz Van Rentyl,and rawprawn;I had no intentions of"vigilante"action etc when posting my original remarks,ans apologise if they came over as such. Yes rawprawn,there can be only one arbiter,that being FE of course,and I know that FE will step in if someone is posting particularly abusive comments.All I was suggesting was that to prevent it happening in future,all new members are presented with"rules"when registering.
