    There don't seem to be any forum rules... and if there are... they are inconsistent.

    Where are the forum rules posted, and why aren't they obvious?

    Thanks wazzle.

    But an update would be useful, esp. "rules"... due to the number of posts relating to "I did, you didnt, he/she wah-wah, you can't say that, he did, mod did, i can, no you can't, etc." type nonsense. It's a shame to see so much bickering in the forums when a link to the forum rules and a smack is all that is needed. :)

    We deliberately don't want to use the word rules, we use guidelines instead. If you behave nothing is wrong, if there is a problem a mod will tell you. Funny thing is, when a mod says something certain people need to rebel, no matter what he/she decides. On the other hand, if we make a long list of rules people complain as well.

    I'd say the users should just accept that they're not in charge and should be happy that we're open to discussion in most cases.

    *coughs* everyone except a certain few who get angry about affairs that have nothing to do with them.

    Please keep such posts in general nonsense.
