Please take a minute or two to read through the Guidelines below. They have been updated to make the whole experience better for both you and for our team of moderators; if everyone follows these Guidelines, the moderators really won't need to step in at all! Violators may be warned, suspended from posting, or barred from the forums

KW is a place where you can have your say, voice an opinion on current affairs or meet up with friends. Just choose one of the forums and see what's going on.

Please follow the common sense guidelines below:

Things you should probably not do, or else you will be mocked endlessly by Jay who will hack into your account and make you look silly, you twit !

Try to avoid over-sized avatars that mess with the layout of the forum
Try to avoid fancy animated avatars - keep them to a reasonable size for our dial-up members (not everybody has broadband)
Try to avoid images in sigs - small ones are cool
Try to avoid overly long sigs - they just make you scroll down for longer to read the posts

General courtesy guidelines
Do be civilized and considerate.
Do try and express your thoughts carefully and clearly.
Do be sure to read what the other person is actually saying and not what you think they may be saying.
Don't post when intoxicated! You'll find it harder to keep to the guidelines!
Do try to keep messages on-topic and post on the appropriate topic board.
Don't duplicate existing topics elsewhere.
Do watch what you say you are responsible for what you write.
Don't post personal information about yourself (phone numbers, address etc) - it's for your own safety.
Do respect the Moderators' decisions KW Moderators reserve the right to edit, relocate and/or remove any message, at any time, for any reason. All editing decisions should be considered final.
Do remember that the KW discussion forums are moderated by a group of people who have volunteered to put themselves in the position of making difficult judgement calls. Following these guidelines/rules makes their life easier, and everyone's experience visiting KW better.


More serious guidelines - May result in a warning from a moderator and a temporary suspension/permanent ban

Don't get personal; a good general rule: "criticize ideas, not people".
Don't post personal/racial/ethnic/gender-based insults, slurs or offensive comments.
Don't make posts that are inflammatory just to wind people up.
Don't post contact details e.g. phone numbers and physical address details.or post other peoples e-mail addresses unless you have their permission to do so.
Don't make slanderous statements, or anything else that might violate someone's privacy.
Don't threaten other users. Threats will not be tolerated

A note on bans:
A ban may be temporary or permanent. If you receive a permanent ban well then you probably deserved it. If you receive a temporary ban then take the time to chill out, drink beer, read a book, feed the kids, have a shower, do some work - you'll feel so much better for it
