Forum Rules

These rules are not meant to constrain or intrude on your personal opinions and thoughts. They’re just some suggestions to help everyone enjoy, interact and express themselves on our DeafCOG forums. We ask you all to consider these when you become a forum member.

We respect everyone’s right to express their thoughts and opinions, and encourage constructive dialogue among members of the forums. But we do ask you to remember that if your contributions don’t comply with our House Rules then they (and you) may be removed permanently.

Whilst we moderate this site we do hope to create a community with you that is built on respect, and over time develop a culture of self moderation. 

So we’ve kept it to just five basic rules that we ask you to keep in mind:

  • Keep your posts nice;

  • Don’t be obscene, offensive, defamatory, threatening, harassing, overtly sexual, discriminatory or hateful to another person or organisation - including us, our partners, our employees, competitors and other people or organisations;

  • This is a spam free zone. So no repeat posts please or unsolicited ads;

  • Keep posts relevant to the DeafCOG forums and thread;

  • We welcome your feedback both positive and negative, and will endeavour to respond to your comments when you’d expect us to.

While we support lively, open discussion, we reserve the right to delete comments at our discretion.

That is enough of the serious stuff. Now let’s have some fun. Make a post, add a comment and get involved. We look forward to interacting with you and thanks for becoming a fan of our page.
