Please read our rules
Hi all,

It is vital that everyone on the forum is fully aware of the forum rules, and makes every effort to ensure that no aggressive, insulting or defamatory posts are made towards both members or non members.

The Moderator team will be clamping down on bad behaviour, editing any posts that break forum rules. Any posts which include defamatory comments will be removed immediately without prior warning and the user will be contacted by an Admin.

We want a friendly, family atmosphere on the forum which will help attract new members both young and old.

If anyone has any problems or concerns, then feel free to contact me via posts here.

Forum Rules
English Only.
This site is English speaking only, no other language is allowed here, including in posting as well.

Threads/Posts must be civil and tasteful.
-Threads/posts considered to be offensive to other members, or considered as bad taste may be edited/deleted by one of the forum moderators. While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters

Abusive Comments
-TheFootballFactory will not tolerate insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts towards any other member of the forum. If a member does abuse another member then they will be issued a warning, along with details of why they have been warned. If a member repeats the offence, this will result in a permanent ban.

-If however you feel that you have been unfairly treated, then contact a member of the Admin team by posting here, who will re-view the situation.

Post Quality
-Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such. Also text-talk is not permitted on the forum. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed and any member who is actively doing this to make their post count increase, will get their account put back to 0 and all threads deleted. 

-Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed.

-We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.

-Although a lot of people are extremely broad-minded and will not be bothered by the use of any known swear word, there are those amongst us who find swearing unacceptable. We have a swear filter to automatically censor most common swear words, but, as it is possible to circumvent this by using similar characters, we sometimes have to manually censor some words. Obviously, some words are worse than others, but generally speaking, if a word is in the swear filter, it is deemed to be unacceptable for use on these forums.

-Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to Spam other members.

-Discrimination is not tolerated on this forum. Discrimination can take the form of the use of specific words or phrases or can be in the form of a general attitude towards an individual or group of people. For example, making a statement that all black people are criminals is discrimination on the basis of race, is illegal and is unacceptable. Discrimination can be on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation or political persuasion.

Promotion of other sites.
-Members are not permitted to promote another site on Football, without the permission of a member of the Admin team. If a member is found to promote/Spam the site with another site then they will be warned/banned. All posts will be removed.

Age Range
TheFootballFactory is a public forum, open to all ages; therefore posts need to be respectful. No images or URL of a pornographic nature are welcome and will be removed. Bad Language needs to be kept to a minimum. If a post is found to contain this, then moderators have the ability to edit/delete the post.

-If a member is found to have multiple accounts, then these accounts may be removed or suspended that includes the one you are using.

-Warnings will be issued if a member breaks these simple rules, or causes a disruption to the forum. Warnings can be issued for the following...

* Text Talk
* Short/Pointless Replies/Overuse of Smilies
* Off-Topic Posting
* Personal Insults
* Strong Language
* Racist Comments
* Spamming
* Swearing
* Disrespecting 

-In serious cases, a warning will not be appropriate and the account will be suspended for a period of time.

-If a member has a complaint against another member/moderator/admin, or a post/thread, then contact a member of the admin team via e-mail or PM. Complaints made public on the forum will be removed. Failure to do so in the correct manner may result in you receiving a warning.

Banned Members
-If a banned member wishes to return to The Football Factory after being away for a long period of time, then they need to send an e-mail to one of the admins requesting permission to do so, otherwise as soon as that member has been noticed, the account will be suspended.

-The Football Factory will do its best to attempt to keep all messages on this forum respectful and within the forum rules. While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

The Staff of The Football Factory reserve the right to edit, delete, move, close any thread for any reason.

Our warning will be a public system, all warnings will go into a warning forum you will be named and you will be notified each time you get a warning and it will be published in the thread with your name.
The Warning system will run in 4 warnings.
Stage 1. will consist of a 7 days ban.
Stage 2. will consist of a 14 days ban.
Stage 3. will consist of a 21 days ban.
Stage 4. will consist of a life time band. But this will also be determined by a vote of all members, the votes remain open for 30 days and if after that the vote is NO the warning system will restart and you stay, if the vote is YES then you will be banished for life.

Thank you.
