    Default LFCNY Forum Rules and a How To Use the Forum - Please Read, especially newbies.

    Welcome, everyone, to the new look LFCNY Forums.

    Over the next few weeks/months we will be making a few tweaks here and there and, with some fine tuning these will become one of the better LFC Boards on the web.

    As with all message boards, success here will depend on the posters, the topics and the moderation. The point of moderation is not to censor topics, promote a point of view, or any other secret agenda. The point is to keep the forums free flowing, enjoyable and promote a healthy exchange of views.

    Rules & Goals of the Forums

    The primary aim of these boards is to exchange opinions and information about Liverpool FC and the NY Supporters Club with other posters.

    Nearly all the rules about posting have been made with this in mind.

    If there are infractions, loosely speaking, the procedure will be:

    1. Poster is notified by Private Message (PM) to take it easy.
    Consider this the equivalent of a stern talking-to from the ref.

    2. Poster is given a Yellow Card. This means that the poster cannot start any
    new threads and is one step away from a permanent ban. Can be

    3. Poster is given a Red Card. Poster loses all priviledges. This will be
    reviewed by all moderators. If the poster reregisters under a new name
    during the review period or if the Red is made permanent, there will be
    an IP ban.

    Straight Red Cards No Warning

    a) Direct Personal Insult. I.E. "You are an idiot," and all the variations. This isn't grade school, this is an exchange of opinions and information.

    b) Spam. Advertising for external events or products, posted anywhere.

    Yellow Cards and PM Warnings (Persistent breaches will lead to Red)

    1. Off-topic posts in the non-Community discussion areas. Off-topic posts will be deleted/edited. (If you keep doing it, see #4.)

    2. Trolling and Flaming - this is more of a pattern, and will get you a certain Yellow; if its egregious enough it can be a straight Red. Bottom line, don't try to pick fights, don't try to piss off others.

    3. Persistent bad language Im not going to spell it out!

    4. When your posts regularly require closer moderation. Call this the persistent fouling Yellow.

    Appeals Process
    We are not always right though we always think we are!!
    If you think you've been given a Yellow or Red by mistake or unfairly, PM (private message) us, and tell us why.

    Reporting Dodgy Posts
    If you believe a post is obnoxious, obscene or whatever, report it to the Mods, by clicking on the Roadsign icon and tell us the problem.

    Thanks, and enjoy.
