Forum Guidelines

Welcome to Boyzone and Mikey Graham News

We want each of our members to have an enjoyable experience whilst visiting out site and therefore expect that anyone who has an account will act in a responsible manner and have respect for their fellow users.

The forum guidelines have been put in place to help maintain a friendly and supportive atmosphere for everyone who participates in the community.

Posting Guidelines:
When posting a new topic, please select the forum that relates most to the subject matter of your topic. When posting a new topic do not use the CAPS lock. It is hard to read and is considered shouting.

Posting within a thread:
Please do not continually quote previous posts - known as nesting. This is often unnecessary and leads to posts that have to be scrolled through just to find the latest comment. Quoting is only usually necessary when the post you are replying to is on a previous page.  

Please do not post one word or 'emoticon only' answers.

Attachments & Links:
Images, material or links to images and/or material whether real, satirical or implied that are obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, violent, abusive, insulting, or threatening in nature are not permitted on this site. Anyone who posts such images will be permanently banned. The moderators and Admin will do their best to delete offensive images as soon as is possible.

Sigs & Avatars:
Please try to keep both signatures and avatars to a reasonable size. There are no size limits at present, but if sizes start getting silly then we may post future restrictive guidelines.

Language Guidelines:
Libellous, unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, harmful, sexist, homophobic, threatening, obscene, racially offensive or otherwise objectionable material will not be tolerated.

Derogatory statements, direct or indirect personal attacks are strictly not permitted.

Posts that are regarded as argumentative or inciting an argument will not be allowed.

The site owners work extremely hard at keeping the forum free from such posts, however they will not be held responsible for any posts that contravene these guidelines.

Impersonating someone else:
This is unacceptable, as is adopting an inappropriate screen name (one that is vulgar, offensive, etc.) Posting under multiple usernames is also forbidden.

Swearing:
Please try and keep language appropriate at all times. As such, forums members are asked to refrain from swearing where possible when posting to these forums.

Non-English Threads & Text-Talk:
Any messages written in another language will be deleted as they make the forum very hard to moderate. Also, please try to avoid using 'text-talk' as it can be difficult for everyone to read.

PM Guidelines
If exclusively personal contact is needed, use the Private Message system. Do not post a topic where only one member is expected to answer.

PM abuse is unacceptable and absolutely against forum rules. Please let a Moderator know immediately if this happens to you.

Copyright Guidelines:
Copyright infringement is illegal. When posting copyrighted material, please use small sections or link to the article. When posting copyrighted material please give credit to the author in your post.

Illegal download links for audio or video are strictly forbidden, and anyone posting such material, or information on how to obtain in, will be banned.

If you are unsure as to whether the link you wish to post falls within this category, please contact a Moderator before posting.

Sales & Unofficial Merchandise:
Any sales must be done via ebay, or a similar site. You may then post the link to your sale on this forum. This is to help protect both sellers and buyers.

Boyzone's Privacy:
Posting or requesting personal information regarding the band, such as home addresses, flight numbers, hotel names etc. is strictly forbidden and could lead to the user being banned.

Respect for the band’s privacy is of utmost importance and inappropriate discussion about members private lives is not allowed.

If you are unsure whether a picture, post or thread you wish to make will be acceptable, please check with a moderator before posting it on the forum.

Your Privacy
We recommend not giving out personal details such as your surname, postal address or phone number on the site. This is for your own safety and protection as other people browsing the site could easily misuse this information.

Remember, when you are online, it is very easy for people to pretend to be someone they're not and people do not have to register to view the information the forum contains.

Reporting Violations
If you witness a posting that violates these terms, please report this post to a Moderator or Admin and it will be handled.

Any comments posted that violate our Guidelines are routinely removed as soon as possible. We reserve the right to close the accounts of persistent violators of these Rules of Conduct.

Consequences of Violations
All users who register to this forum agree to be bound by the rules and terms and conditions. Changes to the rules and terms and conditions will be publicised and further posting to the forum indicates acceptance of any publicised rule. Any user who breaks the rules or terms and conditions may have their message removed.

1- If a member breaks the rules an initial warning will be given, explaining the reason for it.
2- If the member breaks the rules again a temporary ban will be given - at Admin/Moderators discretion.
3- If the member breaks the rules repeatedly a full ban will be enforced.

Severe violations may result in immediate banning (temporary or permanent as necessary).  
Removed Posts/Threads:

Moderators will try to PM the author of any removed posts or threads wherever possible but please note that they are not required to do this.

If you wish to find out why a certain thread or post has been removed, please PM a Moderator to ask why.

Please don't make a thread on the forum asking about it. The reason for this being that there is more than likely a good reason why something has been removed, and asking about it publically only serves to draw attention to it once again
