Forum Rules

Main Rules:

  • No excessive swearing
  • No spoilers – If you would like to post any spoilers, make sure you have *Spoiler* in the title without giving anything away!
  • No excessive caps – Please do not post threads in capitals, or have titles of posts in caps.
  • No flaming – Please do not try and provoke anyone into a fight.

The Administrator for the forum is: Kam.

The Senior Moderators for the forum are: dsrchris and  John Hancock.

The purpose of the Talk Whatever Online (TWO) is to provide a platform for cult entertainment fans to interact with each other in a fun and friendly manor.

Each forum has one Forum Leader or more who look after the forum, so if you have any suggestions please contact them.

TWO encourages everyone to take part in discussions and enjoy the community.

When posting, please remember:

Language

Forum posts that contain explicit, obscene or vulgar language will be removed. We also do not allow links to pornographic, warez, or hates sites of any kind. Excessive swearing will also lead to warnings too, even if they are starred (for example: ****).

We ask all members to try and refrain from using text (txt) speak when writing messages, as this can quite often make it difficult for other forum members to understand the messages clearly.

Spoilers

TV shows are considered spoilers up until TWO DAYS after the show has aired in the UK!

Please use your common sense when posting about any shows/books or movies – if you want to create a discussion topic, use a descriptive title without giving any spoilers in the title. Similarly any discussion topics about shows/books or movies that have just aired/been released will contain spoilers, so avoid them if you don’t want to see any spoilers!

Caps

Typing in block capitals is considered shouting, so please do not post any titles, or posts in full caps.

Flaming

Challenge others’ points of view and opinions, but do so RESPECTFULLY and THOUGHTFULLY without insult and personal attack. Anyone attacking other members for no reason, will be warned/banned.

Spam

Spam posts are not tolerated under any circumstance. Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. Multiple warnings will lead to suspensions or even a permanent ban. This includes the posting of a third party website which bears no relevence to the thread, or messages which serve only to boost a members post count.

The Administrator and Forum Leaders reserve the right to edit or remove any post at any time. Discussions that contain multiple instances of spam may be closed at the discretion of the Forum Leaders. What is construed as indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to the Administrator, Senior Moderators and Forum Leaders and not members.

Images

You can post images in most of the forums, please try and keep all pictures relevant to the thread. HINT: It’s best to save pictures from sites and upload them onto your space (Google ‘free image hosting’). If you need someone to host an image for you, please ask. No images should contain pornography or racism, or be overly offensive. In other words, make sure the pictures are safe to view in the workplace.

Signatures

Signatures should be NO LONGER than 5 lines and 160 characters. The following also apply:

* Quote/Spoiler tags are NOT to be used.
* The maximum font size permitted is size 2.
* NO images are allowed.

Please keep your signature clean, and original.

Links

If you have a website you wish to advertise, please use the Plug Forum.

No link may contain pornographic, illegal or hateful material, and any links posted outside of the Plug Forum with no relevance to a thread or that serves only as an advertisement will be deleted, and the member may be banned if the occurrence continues.

Multiple Accounts/Banned Users

A maximum of ONE account is allowed per person. We have the ability to track and match IP addresses on accounts. If you are found to be using two or more accounts, one or more of them will be deleted and you may be banned from TWO. Anyone allowing a banned user use of their account may also face having their account being suspended.

Personal Information

TWO encourages you to keep personal information to yourself. Similarly, do not ask for personal information from others. Forum posts that request members to post personal information to another person will be removed. Information that should be considered personal includes but is not limited to your home phone number, address and email.
