This post serves as a reminder of what is and isn't allowed on these forums.

Taken from the rules:

7.1). General Chat

7.2). Whilst the General Chat area is for non MG Rover related posts - it is NOT an area where adult material of questionable taste will be tolerated. It must also be remembered that children regularly visit this website and please consider this when you post. If a subject is deemed unsuitable it will be removed without warning.

8.1). No flaming or baiting other members. Attacks on other members will not be tolerated in any way shape or form.

8.2). No sexual references, pornography or unsuitable graphic imagery including links to such materials.

8.3). No use of what is considered obscene language.

8.4). No racist, cultural or religious defamation.

8.5). Do not post links to any illegal sites, in particular software piracy or 'Warez' sites including bulletin boards. This also means no such links should be added to your signature.

Can I please draw all of the above points to everybody's attention please?

I've noticed the content within General Chat has overstepped the mark on more than a few occasions - we have the 18+ forum for such content, if that floats your boat.

Please help us to keep General Chat the safe place it was designed to be.

I think it is prudent to post this excerpt from the forum rules to clarify General Chat. Just so there is no confusion :D

8.1). General Chat

8.2). Whilst the General Chat area is for non MG Rover related posts - it is NOT an area where adult material of questionable taste will be tolerated. It must also be remembered that children regularly visit this website and please consider this when you post. Although General Chat may appear to be a free for all it is not and it is regularly frequented and managed by Moderators. If a subject is deemed unsuitable it will be removed without warning.

8.3). We encourage members to keep their "General Chat" and "Natter" in this forum. It helps keep the rest of the forums clutter free and facilitates easier searching of threads for such things as technical issues for instance.

8.4) The forum "General Chat" is not indexed so threads in there will NOT be included in any search of the forums. This is to protect the forums as they are constantly scanned by search bots and their thread contents are included in the databases of general web searching engines such as Google and Yahoo. As these forums are a business it is important that we preserve the integrity of them and manage how they are viewed externally. As mentioned in para 6.4 above, these forums were once blacklisted for containing adult content and getting them white listed again is very difficult and time consuming.

8.5). Do NOT post car related threads in General Chat. Posting asking mods not to move it will NOT prevent mods moving them to the correct sub forum and is a waste of everybody's time. If members persist in doing this their threads will be permanently deleted rather than moved.

Regards,
