By using the Cuddington, Delamere and Sandiway village online forum you agree to conform to the Forum Rules, below:
It is very easy to use a discussion forum in ways that annoy other users. The following guidelines can help you avoid doing this:
· Only send messages likely to be of interest to a significant number of other people.
· Make the subject line short but informative.
· Make sure your message is appropriate to the Forum Category you are posting to.
· Use 'plain text' format rather than Rich Text/HTML for the body of your message.
· If you are not certain of the accuracy of information you post, say so.
· Don't send messages aimed at only one or two people in the group - email them directly instead.
· Don't send 'Thank-you's’ or Seasons Greetings to the lists.
· Never make personal attacks on other subscribers. Criticise ideas, not people!
· Keep your language moderate.
· Avoid defamation or damage to the reputation of commercial suppliers.
· No advertisements.
· AVOID CAPITALISING EVERYTHING. Capitalising is the equivalent of shouting and ill-mannered.
· Don't send attachments by email. You may do so on the online Forum
· Never mark Cuddington, Delamere and Sandiway Village online forum email as spam with your ISP, it may cause other forum emails to be discarded
· Make sure a reply relates to the subject. If not, start a new subject (Topic).
· When posting a reply, remove earlier messages except for parts that relate to your reply.
· When posting a reply, change the subject line if the topic has changed
· If you reply to an old post from the archive make it clear that's what you have done.
· Don't reply on a different mailing list or Category to the original message without good reason
· If you do reply on a different list or Category, mention that this is what you are doing.
· Avoid sending the same message to multiple lists except where there is a good reason. Wanting to mail as many people as possible is not a good reason.
If you would like to comment on these guidelines post your comment to the Village Website list or send an email to the forum administrators.
In the event of a breach of the Rules or to prevent one the Forum Administrators may moderate posts (i.e. hold and approve or reject) by subject or by individual.
Most of the website is created using the Content Management System (CMS) named "Joomla". This ensures that our website is compatible with all major operating systems and internet browsers - see Joomla! Core Features for more details.
Although we do all we can to ensure information on the website is accurate, relevant and up-to-date, we cannot be held responsible for any damage or inconvenience allegedly caused by published content. The website support staff reserve the right to edit posts on the site and to exclude anything that may be objectionable or offensive to many readers, especially in the Forum section.
Contributions must not contain unlawful or objectionable content nor involve disruptive, offensive or abusive behaviour. Please be respectful and civil to other website users, even if you disagree with them. Material that is unlawful, harassing, threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, abusive, hateful, inflammatory, profane, racially, sexually or religiously offensive or otherwise objectionable or unlawful is not acceptable and will not be allowed. All advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, junk mail and any other forms of commercial solicitation are prohibited.
One of the purposes of CuddingtonandSandiwayOnline is to promote local interests. With this in mind the webteam will normally only publish items relating to people and businesses within the local parish. If you have a complaint about a business, please raise it directly with that business rather than to attempt publicly via this website. It will be the webteam's sole decision as to whether there has been a breach of this Code of Conduct. We have the right (but not the obligation) to edit, refuse to post, or to remove any contribution in whole or in part that we deem to be in breach of the Code of Conduct.
Directories are listed of businesses and local services within the parish. Services which do not operate from a physical 'brick and mortar' outlet which can be visited by the public (eg taxi companies, tradesmen, accountants) are excluded from these directories - the intent is to promote and reward infrastructure investment within the local community.
