UKFF Rules & Guidelines

Please read and agree to these terms & conditions before posting on the UK Fan Forum...




About Us


First of all, the UK Fan Forum is a non-profitable site designed to act as an internet community for fans of pro wrestling who live in the UK, although we welcome wrestling fans from all over the world.






Abuse/Flaming


Abusing or flaming other members is not allowed on the UKFF. It spoils genuine discussion and any members found to be abusing/flaming others will be dealt with.






Tape Trading

Tape Traders: All topics relating to tape trading advertisments and trading requests should be posted in our Classifieds board here. We ask that you respect this rule because not only does this sort of plugging bog down the forum with tape trading posts, but it also ruins legitimate threads when they are dragged off topic by traders pimping their business.






Bannings


If you have been banned from The UKFF in the past and have not been given permission to re-register you may NOT register to use the UKFF.






Adverts/Plugs


Plugging in the main forum is not allowed. Any adverts for your website/business/federation/private sale/auction etc should be posted to our UKFF: Classifieds board. You can put the URL of your site in your signature, so that it appears at the bottom of your posts. We can also put your site into the Plug-O-Meter if you put a link to the forum on your site, e-mail Moorish (with the URL, title and slogan of your site) if you would like to do a link exchange. Remember to get onto the Plug-O-Meter, you must have a link back to the UKFF on the main page of your site. You can use this image to link to us if you wish.


Wrestling Federations: If you wish to post details of an upcoming event in the main forum, we ask that you follow these conditions:

* One thread per show, no additional thread for results, discussion, pics etc. Any repeat threads will be deleted or merged at our discretion.
* Any relevant information should be included in the first post of the thread and updated via the edit function as required. So that means no lazy links to another website for card info etc.

In the cases where these conditions are not met then we will either delete/merge/close the appropriate threads and warn the topic starter.







Spoilers


Any posts about TV shows which haven't aired yet in the UK (Raw, for example) should have SPOILERS clearly placed in the subject line. It is important that you abide by the spoiler rules as people revealing spoilers will have their accounts suspended, so take care before posting. If we suspect you of deliberately revealing spoilers or continuously revealing spoilers we will disable your account permanently.





Raw & Smackdown

Raw or Smackdown spoilers can be posted after the evening show (i.e 9/10pm) has aired. It should be noted that with Raw now being broadcast live in the early hours of Tuesday morning, threads relating to the show should still be marked as SPOILERS until the evening show has aired. This is to give people who are unable to stay up for the live show a chance to see it without having the show spoiled.





Pay Per View events

SPOILERS should be marked for the next 2 days after the event has taken place, therefore until Tuesday evening (9 PM) in the case of a Sunday PPV. However, this also includes WWE, TNA and MMA PPV's so calculate the 2 days accordingly.






TNA Events


ALL TNA results must be clearly marked as SPOILERS until one week after the US airing. This includes Impact, meaning no unmarked spoilers should be posted until a week after the relevant episode has aired in the US. Obviously this also includes placing any spoilers in your signature. When TNA is being broadcast in the UK, then the RAW/Smackdown spoiler rules apply.

Note: In general, you should think before you post, and consider whether others may not want to read your spoilers. If you do post a spoiler, then be humble, edit it, apologise and move on.


Signature



Images & Avatars


Signature images & avatars are welcome on the UKFF, but these should be no larger than 30kb in size, and should not be of a size which could distract people from reading a thread. We have set a limit at 400 by 300 pixels, any signatures found to be breaking either of these limits will be removed, and repeat offenders will have the rights to a signature removed. We we ask you to comply to this because as the sizes of images increase, so do the loading times of all the pages here. Please remember that not everyone has a super-fast, broadband connection.






Off Topic


Off topic posts are welcome, but must be posted in the Off-Topic Forum. Any posts related to wrestling or Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) should be placed in the Main Forum, but in one of the existing MMA threads. New MMA threads are not encouraged and may be closed at a moderator's discretion.






Multiple Accounts


You are not allowed to register under multiple identities, so please only register for one account per person. Extra accounts take up space on the server, so if you lose your password, either e-mail us or use the lost password function. We can changes your username if you wish, so just you ask us. Remember you can modify most of the details of your account using My Controls.






Your Responsibility


You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use UKFF to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, unneccessarily vulgar, hateful, discriminatory, harassing, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law.







Our Rights


Although we cannot possibly review all the messages posted and are not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message or ban any member for any reason whatsoever.







Disclaimer



If any abusive or offensive material is found you should utilise the Report this post to a moderator link, which can be found at the bottom of every post, so that the material in question can be dealt with as quickly as possible, if this is appropriate.


Neither The UKFF, nor any of the associated sites, can be held responsible for any false, offensive or otherwise unacceptable content on our forums.


All e-mail addresses collected by the forum software will not be used for any purpose, other than forum related e-mail. They will not be sold or given to any other company or person.


We reserve the right to make amendments to these Terms & Conditions at our discretion.








*** Anyone found to be breaching the above terms and conditions will be dealt with in a way which we feel is appropriate ***








Finally, and most importantly, please remember that the Administrators & Moderators of this forum work very hard to ensure that everyone can express their views. We always act with the intention of making the UKFF better. Obey the rules, don't act like an idiot and there will not be a problem.



If you have any further queries, technical problems or suggestions relating to the UK Fan Forum, don't hesitate to contact Junkman or Moorish and we'll do the best we can to help you out.
