The Warnings system provides the ability to administer warnings and points to members as part of a disciplinary policy, for breaching the site rules for example.

Warnings carry a point total that is awarded to users. When a user reaches 50 points, the user is then 'banned' until their points expire below the 50 point mark.

The Warnings

Title - Points - Expires
  • Inappropriate Content - 25 points / 30 days
  • Inappropriate Behavior - 25 points / 30 days
  • Posted a Spoiler - 20 points / 20 days
  • Inappropriate Language - 15 points / 15 days
  • Inappropriate Advertising / Spam - 10 points / 15 days
  • Txt Speak - 10 points / 10 days
Forum Leaders and Senior Moderators can amend the points at their discretion. They may want to give you a heads up about the rules/policies so may choose not to add any points with a warning. On the other hand, they may choose to give over 50 points if they believe a ban is due.

Any members who receive warnings will be sent an automated private message explaining the reasons for the warning.

If you feel you have received an unfair warning, please contact one of the Senior Moderators or the Administrator to discuss the issue. Warnings can be removed if we feel they were excessive.

Inappropriate Content

While we believe very much in the freedom of speech & expression, you DO NOT have an absolute right to say/post whatever you want in this community. Anything that goes against our core beliefs and the purpose for which this community was designed may not be allowed. Posts and comments that are meant to incite conflicts between members or outside parties are strictly prohibited. TWO Administration has the absolute right to edit, modify, close or delete any content found in this community. While this rarely, if ever happens, we will not tolerate individuals or groups creating problems with the overall membership.

Nude and pornographic material is NOT acceptable anywhere in the Talk Whatever Online community.

Threads/replies encouraging illegal/unethical action will not be allowed.
Inappropriate Behavior

Abusive comments, flaming, or derogatory insults or comments are strictly against the rules. If you disagree with another member's point of view, do so in a mature and civil manner. If someone posts to discuss their personal problems or seeks help from other forums members, please do not respond unless you have something positive or helpful to add. If you find yourself being flamed or insulted by another member, please do not dignify that person with a response. Notify a Forum Leader and let us handle it. If you feel you must respond to a flame or insult directly, please do NOT do so on the board. Use Private Messaging, but make sure you do NOT threaten any member.

"Trolling" or making posts with the intention of creating problems on the forums is obviously against the forum rules. This includes registering an alternative account for the sole purpose of creating problems on the forums. "Troll accounts" will be locked immediately and permanently, and the primary account holder will be banned from TWO. Members that visit TWO only to participate in "conflict" threads may be designated as Trolling and have their account temporarily or permanently suspended.
Posted a Spoiler

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!
Inappropriate Language

While we understand many of the members are grown adults, we do have young adults and children that visit TWO. Further, many people are offended by vulgar language. If you feel you must swear to get your point across, please censor your language appropriately so as to not be overly offensive. (e.g., "S***!") Replacing one or two letters in an expletive by using ASCII characters (! For I, etc) is not an acceptable solution. Abuse of this rule will lead to your posting privileges being suspended.
Inappropriate Advertising / Spam

We encourage members to join in with discussions offering you own opinions and life experience. Please do not post messages just to increase your post account. Any messages that are effectively pointless to a discussion topic will be removed.

If you would like to plug your own site, please do so in the plug forum or in your signature. Please do not create discussion topics in the main forums around your own websites.
Txt Speak

Also please note, 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.
