What the forums are for.
These forums are about celebrating Yorkshire and supporting the diverse communities of Yorkshire. Those of us who live in Yorkshire are lucky to have made our home in one of the most attractive and friendly parts of the world.

Our mission as far as this forum is concerned, is to provide a service where people can share the greatness that is Yorkshire, discuss, debate and enjoy being part of the community.

Free Speech.
  • Free speech within the realms of non-libel comments is permitted in the Politics Forum - with the proviso that posts are written in the spirit of good taste.
  • You own what you write, however every step will be taken to ensure that while respecting free speech, we don’t end up with a litigation against us. Therefore, if we receive a complaint - we will consider moderating, editing or removing posts where necessary. It does not follow that because we receive a complaint, that we will always take action.

About FREE Links and Posting Events.
  • There are a few hard and fast rules about what kind of links are acceptable. If you want to promote your event or business, provided it’s legal and based or related to Yorkshire, then there is usually not a problem.
  • Some things though are NOT acceptable: Anything likely to offend our website visitors, particularly material which is unsuitable for children to view including: Nudity, Porn, Hatred.. you get the picture... plus anything illegal.
  • Also NOT acceptable is posting links without genuine content. New posters are watched carefully just for this purpose. We are fully aware that some so called seo's add links to forums purely for the purpose of attempting to increase their rank in search engine results. We do not like our forum to be used for that purpose, as far as we are concerned this is basically trying to spam the index of the web and cheating - we don't like cheating. If you want to add multiple out-links to your website, add the website details in your profile, then make lots of interesting posts.
  • The posting of large banner adverts without any written content in the post is NOT allowed.
  • If you post a graphical advert covering events or services, please take time to copy out your advert and post it as a text message too. This will enable the search tool to index the content. The search tool cannot index the content of 'graphics only' banner adverts, which can reduce the value of the content. It also reduces the accessibility of our forums and may prejudice against some disabled people.
  • If you link to your own website - your full contact details should be visible on that site. A phone number and contact form or email address is not considered full contact details.
