This forum is set up for the benefit of Longton Rugby Club. It is meant to promote discussion and share information on a variety of subjects, not necessarily Rugby related
You have to be a member of the board to post comments.

1. Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated on this forum. Treat others as you would expect them to treat you. Talking trash about another user or posting topics specifically to provoke a negative response from an individual, a group or an entire community is not acceptable to Longton Rugby Club. These posts will be deleted and may result in the individual being banned.

2. You may not impersonate another board member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited. If you engage in this type of behavior, you will be barred from the boards permanently.

3. Posters to the Longton Rugby Club Forum agree not to post any material that is protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right without the express permission of the owner(s) of said copyright, trademark or other proprietary right. This includes but is not limited to magazine, book and newspaper scans, television broadcasts and copyrighted photos and pictures.

4. Offensive language is unacceptable. While I may let you get away with somethings, don't go overboard. A simple rule to follow is: "when in doubt, leave it out." You don't have to use excessive profanity to get your point across, and it's usually better to avoid it altogether. Profanity in posts will be edited out or the whole post removed. Repeat offenders or those who use excessive profanity may lose the privilege to post on Longton Rugby Club Boards.

5. Copied music, pirated games, or any other illegal material may NOT be listed on the Longton Rugby Club For Sale Boards. These posts WILL be deleted and the user may be banned.

6. Since I can't have a rule to cover everything, this is the rule to cover everything. These are public boards, so act like you would if you were in a public place. I reserve the right to choose the guidelines of objectionable content based on my knowledge of the users. These issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, racist, sexist, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or that otherwise violates any law or encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense.

7. As Board Administrator I reserve the right to reveal to the Club's main committee the identity of, or whatever information I know about, any user in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by said user. (The provisions of the Data Protection Act not withstanding).

If you log onto the message board and receive a message that you have been banned, please submit an unban request and wait for the administrator to get in touch with you. Bans are private matters between the Club Committee and person banned and will not be discussed publicly or through third parties. It is not acceptable to return to the boards under another username. If you do, your ban time may be extended.

Longton Rugby Club or the administrator of this forum are not responsible for messages posted on this site or the content therein .
