|Dear forum members
The following guidelines have been set in place to protect you all from potential troublemakers and offensive comments and posts. Abuse of these guidelines could result in a warning or even a permanent ban.
Please respect and honour the few rules we've set to help us make this forum a 'fun' place to be for all ages.
The Forum Staff
We have a set up a '3 strikes and you're out' warning system to protect our members from disruptive guests. 3 warnings from staff will result in a ban from the forum.
Warnings will be issued via the private messaging system. If you do not have private messaging enabled, your warning will be given in full view of the forum. It is then your problem if you miss it.
This is a family site, therefore we request that our members refrain from swearing, posting topics of an adult nature (including X rated jokes). Adult rated innuendo is not encouraged, but tolerated if considered unoffensive by forum staff.
Posts referring to pornography, beastiality, child abuse or anything similar, will result in an 'instant ban' and your IP address will be handed over to the relevant authorities should it be deemed necessary.
Personal politics are not something we like to see on the forum. That is what the private messaging system is for. In Laurel and Hardy land we prefer to leave politics at the door.
SELLING PIRATE COPIES & AUTOGRAPHS
For legal reasons we cannot permit our members to sell pirate/illegal goods on the forum. Linking to items you are selling on ebay is permitted as long as it is only advertised in the relevant section which is here.
The selling of autographs on the forum is only permitted if checked first by Ross.
Whilst we are happy to allow Laurel and Hardy websites to post links to their sites we do encourage you to do so in the relevant thread which is here.
We can accept no responsibility for activity on sites outside this forum.
Links to outside sites must appeal to fans of Laurel and Hardy. If considered by staff to be spam, your link will be deleted without notice and a warning could be issued if deemed necessary.
Under NO circumstances are outside links allowed in signatures.
To keep within the spirit and theme of the forum, avatars should be either connected to Laurel and Hardy or a pic of yourself.
