Hello to boarders old and new. Looks like I'm going to be the main initial moderator here.
I'm reasonably tolerant and certainly don't intend to patrol threads for offensive posts or bunfights. So if you think somebody has crossed the line just report it but don't waste my time with frivolous reports. I'd rather boarders discuss things and reach a settlement themselves. I'll get round to reviewing reported posts and deciding on a course of action, but I'm not here 24/7. If I issue any warnings, temporary or permanent bans I'll probably explain why so boarders know what is and isn't acceptable.
We are an online community that have Orient in common, and I would expect lively debate on football and other issues. Keep it legal & within the rules, but most importantly do try to be interesting, entertaining and fun. Bores and anybody who doesn't know when to step away from the keyboard and stop arguing will not be tolerated for long.
Permanent Bans and retired accounts are indicated next to the username on the members database. Closed Alias accounts are marked by a *
