About contributing to the Bradford Bulls Foundation (BBF) site
Keep your contributions civil, tasteful and relevant. We're committed to providing an atmosphere in which friendly and mature dialogue takes place. Therefore:
No flaming. Flaming means sending unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, racially offensive, or otherwise objectionable material, and it is not acceptable.
Swear words will be ****d out. The moderators will **** out the entire word, except for the first and last letters.
No spamming or flooding. Spamming is the posting of the same (or very similar) messages to lots of forums. Flooding is when the same (or a very similar) message is posted over and over again to the same conversation. It's especially antisocial if it's off-topic for those forums. If you do this, we will remove your postings, and possibly your account.
Please think carefully before revealing personal information on the site. You may include your own personal email address in postings, but please remember that people may use it to send emails you don't want to receive, like adverts or offensive material. If you are sure that you want people to be able to contact you like this, we recommend you set up a new email account specifically for this purpose. If you are under 16, please do not reveal any personal information.
It is not acceptable to publicise anyone else's contact details other than your own, and we will remove any postal addresses or telephone numbers from postings. However, it is acceptable to include general contact details for organisations, for example, but you must only include publicly available details, such as the address of library or museum.
Be patient. Users of all ages and abilities will be taking part in the community.
Posts containing languages other than English may be removed.
Impersonating someone else is unacceptable, as is adopting an inappropriate screen name (one that is vulgar, offensive, etc.)
Please use only appropriate and suitable URLs (website addresses) in your postings. Links to pornography, commercial services or other inappropriate content will be deleted at our discretion. Any URLs you include will be checked by a moderator.
Please don't abuse the complaints system. It exists to enable visitors to let us know about content which breaks these rules. Please do not use the complaints system to alert us to multiple postings, spelling mistakes and so on. Anyone who abuses the complaints system repeatedly may have their account suspended.
