We take pride in keeping our message boards respectful, pleasant, and enjoyable for members of all ages. Please read the following board rules before posting.
Self-Promotion is Spam
All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. If we catch questionable content, it will immediately be removed. Any post that is considered advertising for one's self-interests, including any site which is affiliated with one, fits under this subject, including the promotion of a football community that may be similar.
While you can post links to your website in your signature, you are not allowed to post links to sites you run or are in any way related to in your posts unless you get permission first.
In addition, users are not permitted to post any kind of affiliate program links with referrer IDs at all. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.
Language and Trolling
Our community is family-friendly. There are young users and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed.
This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsafe for younger members. Posts containing inappropriate language will be removed and users will be warned. Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.
Finally, if it is clear that a user does not want to make a positive contribution to the site, combined with a combative and negative attitude, they will be banned.
This especially pertains to the Entertainment & News board. Users must demonstrate an interest in contributing to our discussions, as this is a Notts County fan site after all. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue politics are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result in attacks or insults.
There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals.
When the line is crossed, posts will be removed and the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.
Moderators and Administrators Have the Final Word.
If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards. The appropriate actions will be taken.
We reserve the right to ban individuals and remove posts with or without prior warning.
If you have something to post, and you're not sure which board it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion.
A typical signature contains the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favourite quote or saying.
Excessive font size is not allowed.
Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline. Please keep signatures to a decent size; this means not exceeding 7 lines and banner/images which are too big will be removed.
Multiple Accounts Per Individual Are Not Permitted
If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that your account e-mail address is available to you.
If you are still unable to log in, contact the administrator.
Forum, Article, Blog & Gallery Submissions
We at Pride of Nottingham take no responsibility for members who wish to steal, plagiarize or whatever excuse is used.
Those who do this will be warned and banned, though we as a site cannot promise this won't happen. We will do our best to control what is posted and if a member is caught or reported we will deal with them and remove them.
Threats against the site itself will also be dealt with by a lawyer, as we do not want to be blamed or have people spread information about our site that is not true.
Again, please follow the above guidelines when posting on our message boards. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Above all, remember to have fun!
