Guidelines

By using Twinclub.co.uk, you are agreeing to our Terms and Conditions. Please take a moment to read them.

Twinclub.co.uk is an independent site and community, and has no affiliation with any other site or association.

Whilst we make reasonable efforts to moderate the site, we do not accept responsibility for  for any messages posted and cannot vouch for the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any post.

The messages express the views of the author of the message only, and not the views of Twinclub.co.uk. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable should contact us immediately. We are able to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame assuming we determine that removal is necessary. We do not censor posts based on opinion, but we will remove posts that breach our rules.

What you agree to

You agree, through your use of this site, that you will not use the site to post any material which you know or could be considered to be false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person’s privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law, meaning also that you agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this site.

The basic rules for the forum are as follows:

  • Be polite.
  • Treat your fellow members with respect and as you would expect to be treated.
  • Personal attacks and/or name calling in any form will not be tolerated and will result in you being removed from the forum on either a permanent or temporary basis.
  • Do not post for the sake of posting, or simply to increase your post count.
  • Don’t break the law and don’t post about things that break the law, or that might encourage others to break the law.
  • Don’t post any message that contains any form of advertising, however subtle without obtaining the permission of the site management by contacting us.
  • Ensure your post is useful and if your post is a reply please make sure it is related to the subject of the original poster. Do not change the subject of a post, or post non-constructive replies.

Content Accuracy

In light of our policy of encouraging candid, open exchanges of views and the rapid distribution of information originating from many sources, Twinclub.co.uk cannot determine the accuracy of information that may be uploaded to the forum, and we accept no responsibility whatsoever for the content, origin or use of any message.

Opinions, advice and all other information expressed by participants in discussions are those of the author. Members who rely on such information do so at their own risk. Participants are urged to seek professional advice for specific, individual situations and not rely solely on advice or opinions given in the discussions.

Copyright

If any copyright is breached on our website then please contact us and alert us to the issue.

Advertising and Soliciting

We have very strict rules about advertising on our site.

Authorised Traders may advertise their products and / or services in their allocated section(s) of the message-boards. Authorised Traders must follow Trading terms and conditions (see below).

All unauthorised advertising or soliciting will be removed without explanation and without notice. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Directing members to external websites.
  • Advertising in signatures.
  • Using a thread to indirectly advertise or praise a product (unless the post is a personal recommendation based on personal use).
  • Placing commercial hyperlinks over pictures.
  • Posting of referral, affiliate or any commission generating links.

Persistent unauthorised advertising or soliciting may result in a removal of your membership to the site, on either a permanent or temporary basis.

Signatures

Signatures must be kept to a maximum of 6 (six) lines, and may contain no more than 3 (three) images.

Images must not be larger than the following dimensions:

468 pixels in width
60 pixels in height

Signatures may be edited or deleted without notice by a member of the moderation team.

In addition, members must not post images or use avatars that may cause offence to others. Images that cause offence may be deleted without notice.

Abusive and Anti-Social Behaviour

The site takes our “be polite” rule very seriously. We will not tolerate ANY rudeness or swearing, including modifying words to escape our profanity filter. Any member who is intentionally unpleasant or disruptive will receive one warning, and will be permanently banned from the site after a second offence.

Swearing, blasphemy or profanity – again either explicitly or by trying to deceive our profanity filter – will be edited or deleted without warning or notice and may lead to the member being banned from using the site.

Members should not hijack another member’s thread by deliberately changing the subject away from that which the original poster intended. Posts made in this way may be deleted without notice.

In all cases relating to acceptable content, the moderation team will decide, at its absolute discretion, what is acceptable and what is not. Where posts are edited or deleted by the moderation team, no notice will be given.

Site Moderation

The moderation team may at its absolute discretion, remove or edit any post, signature or profile with or without notice or explanation. This will be after consideration of the rules regarding, unauthorised advertising or soliciting, abusive or antisocial behaviour or any other action which violates the site Terms and Conditions. If you are unsure about whether your post will be allowed under these rules, please seek guidance from a moderator before you post.

Moderators within the site are appointed by the site management to volunteer and moderate topics and posts within the site and have the right to remove, edit or alter any post as they see fit should it violate our terms and conditions. Any members opposing a moderator’s decision should do so with the moderator directly by using PM or email in a professional manner. Any member purposely creating posts or threads opposing a moderators’ decision will result in the member’s forum account being closed permanently.

Members should also be reminded that we do not tolerate ANY rudeness to staff members whatsoever whether it is done through the website, PM system or email.

ANY form of hostility or abuse to a member of the moderation team, as a result of their enforcing any of our rules, will result in the permanent banning of the offending member from the site, without notice.

Members Content and Profile Data

We can cancel/delete your membership upon request, which will, in turn, remove members’ personal information, email and IP address details, but will anonymise your forum post content to retain the integrity of the original post threads. All post content within the forums remains the property of twinclub.co.uk. If you wish to cancel/delete your membership and remove your personal information from the site as per your right within the GDPR, please contact us using the link provided and clearly state your request. Such requests are not able to be dealt with instantly, but will be processed withing a reasonable period of time.

We advise that members do not post any personal information in any posts, but if required such information can be edited, hidden or removed at the discretion of the Management.
