Moderation Policy


Scope

We are a motley crew, representing every corner of fandom from every walk of life, and we value the diversity of people and opinions as our greatest strength. Our community is the most important aspect of the site, and your ads, your comments and conversations are the best part. This Moderation Policy is intended to ensure that all Website users and visitors are able to participate in an exchange of information and ideas in a positive, constructive and beneficial way.


Moderation Aims

This service includes many differing opinions and experiences. You may find opinions that you disagree with. Our aim at all times is to provide a place where the maximum discussion can take place.

We try to be as fair as we can when moderating but in a large community of users, with many different viewpoints, there will always be some people that will not be happy with our moderation policies. While we regret that this happens, we cannot suit all of the people all of the time and have to make decisions based on what is best for the website overall.

It is the responsibility of all members of the website to maintain the website environment.
