Help keep our topics on-topic
26 Jun '18

Forums are different animals to Facebook or chat rooms. Categories and titles organise conversations, making it easy for people to find what they’re looking for and avoid what they’re not.

Here we respect people’s attention and preferences.

Members who’ve set a topic or category to “watched” will be emailed every single reply. The first poster also gets emailed. Please try to stay on-topic, out of fairness to them.

Moderators prefer to intervene as little as possible. You, the community, can help directly. If you see a reply that’s gone off on a tangent to the original post:

  • Please don’t respond to it
  • Flag it for attention. If other members agree with you, the post will be automatically collapsed.

To flag a post, click the following icon below it:

Then select “It’s off-topic” and click “Flag Post”

Thanks for helping to keep things neat and tidy :thumbsup:
