Just to clarify that text speak will NOT be tolerated on this forum. It reflects the standard of the members that we don't tolerate it and makes the forum a far easier place to find information, and far less stressful in reading posts.

Internet abbreviations are fine such as IMO, IIRC, FFS and so on, but things such as:

u
gr8
l8r
2mro
kewl (it's the same number of letters FFS!)
/me hugs hes


will not be tolerated.

There will be a warning system, if ignored then any post that you make written in text speak will be deleted with no explanation, no further warnings and no point of deliberation.

Hopefully this way we can keep the forum the way it is and not have it fall into the state of many other forums.

Update: Warnings

We appreciate that new users may be unfamiliar with the forum rules, so the following will be strictly applied:

First offence = warning.
Second offence = message deleted and an infraction.

We'll allow up to 3 deleted messages, after that you'll be banned for a week. When you return, if you still don't learn, you'll be banned for 14 days.

If you then still persist it's a permanent ban.

Bump for those new members who have not read this thread.

There is a lot of sloppy text on the forum recently.

Right, some people really need to get a grip of their text on the forum. :evil:

If you find you have a few posts deleted in the near future without any explanation then the chances are it will because you have written in retard mode.

Therefore you can expect to see it vanish.

Bored of reminding people about this now. Infractions will be given out followed by bans.

A lot of people ask why we get so 'hung up' about text speak.

Here is an example of a total retard :D





We do not want this forum to turn in to that, which is why there is ZERO TOLERANCE on it.

Normal people will read cr@p like that and not bother returning here. It gives the wrong impression.

Take note people ;)

For those wondering why half the things they type come out in asterisks (the little starry things ***), this is to inform you that some of the more common 'txt speak' words have been added to our word filter.

More words will be added at a later date, but the main offenders have been added for now.
