Having fun is good. We like fun. Please keep it positive and polite. We may take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement.

You may not make personal attacks on other users either in public forums or private messages.

While we don’t mind the occasional ‘naughty’ word, we discourage the use of regular profanity on the boards. It is (for the most part) unpleasant and offensive and continuous use will not be tolerated.

There will be no racial, ethnic, religious, gender based insults or any other personal discriminations.

There will be no posts meant to offend or hurt any other member, in a manner which is offensive or inflammatory.

Spamming is not permitted; please keep all your posts as constructive as possible. That said, if you are in a prog or prog related band and wish to post news of your gig or album in the ‘Other Bands’ thread, we would be happy for you to do so (as long as you don’t mind us reciprocating in your forum). 

Pornography, warez, or any other illegal transactions may NOT be linked in any shape or form.

Users may not argue a moderators decision publicly. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first address the moderator in question via PM. If the problem can not be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their positions to the forum admin. The forum admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions.

Pictures may be posted as long as they are not explicit or offensive. If you plan to post more than one image, or the topic is based on graphics, please link the images rather than screening.

Remember to try and post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other topics and see where your topic should go. If your topic is placed in the wrong forum, it will be moved by a moderator.

If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines then please contact a moderator either via PM or the 'report post to moderator' feature; please do not respond publicly to the member - a Moderator or band member will do what is required upon contact. Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another forum) will be sent a PM warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions.

Any impersonation of a user within these forums, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning.

Linked and locked topics may be pruned regularly to reduce page clutter. If you have a question about where your topic went, please PM a Moderator or Rob (the Administrator) before starting a new topic asking where it went, or posting a duplicate of the original topic. We will be happy to provide you with a link to the new location, or a reason why it was locked and/or removed.

If you are linking to external content, you should link directly to that content. It is unacceptable to use link-thru systems to mask the originating URL, and cases where this is found to be happening may be edited or removed as appropriate.

Violation of any of these rules will result in consequences determined on a case-by-case basis. So there.  Smiley
