A few Acronyms and Abbreviations that you can use in the chatroom, might be useful to let your friends know about them. If you are familiar with mobiles and texting, then these work in a similar way. Acronyms are shortened versions of a longer word or sentence.

Chatroom is now closed indefinetly.

The nature of the Chatroom is completely different from the forums, being dynamic and working at a much faster pace, moderation becomes very difficult. Therefore we ask users to moderate themselves while in the chatroom by following a few simple guidelines, only reporting something when another user or users are clearly acting outside of the Chatroom or Forum Guidelines.

If you are in any doubt contact the Moderator who will look into the matter and will act according to the Chat/Forum Guidelines.

We like to provide a safe and friendly environment for users to chat or discuss while using the Chatroom, any users who abuse the guidelines will not be allowed to particpate anymore.

Before using the forum we suggest reading the following information, you may find this helpful if you are new to how forums work.

Any questions or complaints regarding the forum should be directed to the Moderator first. Also read the Forum Rules before continuing, these contain important information for users.

 

FORUM IS CLOSED

 

All posts should be written in English, we do not have the resources to cater for other languages, any posts that are written in another language regardless of content will be deleted.

We all need rules and this forum is no exception, because we are a family friendly community forum and younger persons may be posting and viewing. The following rules are to protect users and keep the forum clean from bad behaviour.

If people are sensible and use commonsense before posting, no guidelines need ever be enforced. If something on the forum bothers you, let the Moderator or Administrator know immediately.

The forum has some restrictions regarding what you can and can't do, limiting posting of images, live links, PM and post restrictions etc. Most are in force to protect users and forum from abuse, in time some restrictions may be lifted dependant on security and the community's needs.

Please read and follow our rules, we have a zero tolerance and they should be observed.
