Thank you for registering on Arsenal-Land. It is our aim to provide our readers with a premium forum, which draws both thoughtful and interactive debate within a respectful environment. With that in mind, we have drawn up a set of simple guidelines below, which we would appreciate you observe prior to using the forum.
These are in addition to the user agreement that all registered members are bound to.
GUIDELINES:1 - POSTING
Keep on topic - Please consider the original topic of each thread and relate your replies to that original topic.
Duplicate threads - Prior to posting a new topic, please ensure that you are not duplicating a topic already being discussed elsewhere on the forum.2 - LANGUAGE
Respect each other- Please show respect for your fellow members when you post, debate the point and not the person. Differences of opinion should not be deemed as offensive.
Swearing - Whilst we do not employ a non-swearing policy, please be mindful of the fact that swearing may offend others.
Spelling, grammar and typing - We all want to read well-written debate on these forums, but mistakes do happen – please don’t reply to threads just to correct people’s errors. Not only is it irrelevant to the thread, it can also cause offence. Additionally, please refrain from using ‘SMS-text’ abbreviated language.3 - CONTENT
Referencing sources – For external articles please provide a link to the piece and post the content minus irrelevant information from the external source. Please bold the title and set text to large and add your reply at the bottom, preferably in a different colour to make it clear where the article stops and where your viewpoint begins. Example of format
Addressing users for personal reasons – This should be done so via the sending of a PM, and not through the creation of a new topic or existent topic.4 – ABUSIVE BEHAVOIUR / IMPROPER CONDUCT
Abusive behaviour - We will not tolerate abusive behavior on this forum in any form whatsoever.
Inappropriate content - We deem content of racist / sexual nature completely inappropriate for this forum.
Should we deem your conduct to be unsuitable for this forum, you will be warned in the first instance or expelled instantly, if felt necessary.
If you are issued a warning, a secondary offence will result in you being expelled from the site by default.
