    Heyloski peeps!

    The Code Of Conduct has now been updated to fit in with all the recent security changes. The content is mostly the same, but everything has been moved about and new bits added to make it easier to read. :grin:

    I've just spent two hours trying to figure out the HTML coding for it and fixing my frequent mistakes (with guidance from Paul) so you all better bloody read it! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Kudos to KaraBulut for working on it. :grin:

    That's it for now. Go read it. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Re: Code Of Conduct - Updated

    Righty dokey peeps,

    We have now edited a few points to fix an error. Point 5 and 6 are now one making it look like you need to learn less rules. This is really a trick because there are still just as many, but that trick will not work now that I have told you. :wink:

    Oopsie!

    Anyways, please read the update if you haven't already. ^_^

    PS. You are now aware that you are breathing manually.

    Re: Code Of Conduct - Updated

    The Code of Conduct has now been updated on point 11 (security). This latest update states that any pictures of other members are not to be placed in your gallery. This still applies even if that member has given you permission.

    However, you may add photos of other members if you are in the picture and all other members in it have given permission for it to be up. Failure to meet these requirements will result in an instant photo deletion, and that doesn't mean you can just cut yourself into the picture either. :wink:

    This has been introduced in response to numerous members uploading pictures of other members. Despite permission being obtained, it still does not allow the member in the picture to have full control over the photo like they would if it was in their gallery.

    Code Of Conduct Update: Username Changes

    Hey peeps,

    After a discussion in the staff forum we have agreed on the following guidelines when it comes to username changes:

    This has been added to the Code of Conduct. :slight_smile:

    These have been introduced to ensure that members will not abuse their right to change their username every so often resulting in both the members and staff having a difficult time keeping up with who they are. We have agreed that 3 changes are a decent amount for any member, and that the time periods allocated for another change or a reversal are fair and allow members to keep up with any changes.

    If you have any questions on this then feel free to ask.

    New addition to the COC:
    This has been introduced due to countless people breaking the rules and being warned for it. Rather than remove the wall we have reached the agreement that anybody found to be posting personal information on the public areas of the site will instantly receive a one week ban. This may seem harsh at first glance, but the alternative was that the wall was removed for everybody. Those of you who stick to the rules have nothing to worry about. :slight_smile:

    Addition to the Notice message at the top of the forum:
    This is to include sites that randomly pair you with someone to chat with and any other chatroom sites you may be interested in. Discussions of such sites will be removed, and may result in a temporary ban depending on whether a profile is accessible when the link is accessed. :slight_smile:

    I have made that notice box and text a bit smaller so it doesn't dominate the page quite as much. That doesn't make the message any less important though, and if the size reduction causes an increase in breaches then I'll make it bigger again.
