The Football Forum Forum Rules
Threads/Posts must be civil and tasteful.
Threads/posts considered to be offensive to other members, or considered as bad taste may be edited/deleted by one of the forum moderators. This includes signatures.
Text Talk / Short Replies
On TFF you are not limited to 180 characters like in a text message, so please do not use 'text talk' in your posts. Please dont just reply with one word answers, give your opinions. If a member continues to use text talk, then they will be warned/banned. Post counts can be reduced if a member is found to be just posting short replies to up his/her post count.
Members may not use TFF to abuse any other member of the forum. If a member does abuse another member then they will be issued a warning, along with details of why they have been warned. If a member repeats the offence, this will result in a permanent ban.
If however you feel that you have been unfairly treated, then contact a member of the Admin team, who will re-view the situation.
Discrimination is not tolerated on this forum. Discrimination can take the form of the use of specific words or phrases or can be in the form of a general attitude towards an individual or group of people. For example, making a statement that all black people are criminals is discrimination on the basis of race, is illegal and is unacceptable. Discrimination can be on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation or political persuation.

TFF is open to all ages, therefore posts need to be respectful. No images or URL of a pornographic nature are welcome and will be removed. Bad Language needs to be kept to a minium. If a post is found to contain this, then moderators have the ability to edit/delete the post.
