  • READ FIRST: Forum Rules

    Welcome to The Jeans Blog Forum! We have a few rules in place here to keep things ticking over and a happy environment for everyone involved, so please check them out below and familiarise yourself with them! Have fun here and enjoy yourself!

    Forum Rules

    1. Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying, but treat others like you would like to be treated. Constructive comments are welcome, but bullying and rudeness is not.

    2. The forum language is English, so please only post using other languages in PM.

    3. Please do not spam. The definition of spam is an irrelevant or advertising post. Any post considered spam will be removed.

    4. Please do not post threads text in all CAPITALS since this is considered to be shouting and is not necessary. It can be confusing as announcements/sales etc. are made in capitals.

    5. Please refrain from posting images which are extremely large in file size (below 250kb is preferable). This is considerate to members with slow internet speeds, and keeps the forum looking tidy.

    6. Using red text is forbidden as only moderators and administrators will be using red text so it's easy to differentiate the two.

    7. Insulting and flaming or personal attacks against forum staff will be not tolerated.

    8. Please be considerate in the language you use on the forum, some of our members are younger than others. Swearing is not completely banned, just do not swear unnecessarily, and only use minor words.

    9. No hacking, and illegal activity, such as torrents and illegal downloads, this will not be tolerated, and if appropriate, may be reported to local authority.

    10. Please do not post inappropriate material, I think everyone understands what I mean by this. The policy goes that if you would not feel comfortable viewing it at work, or in front of children or parents, don't post it. This is important as inappropriate content can result in a ban.

    11. Regarding celebrity images, please only use an URL to link to them. Celebrity images are often protected and the forum may receive a lawsuit from stolen images. Links to celebs only.

    12. Regarding discussion, please try to refrain from arguments regarding politics. No talks of weapons and any other subjects which could be deemed unsafe from Google. This is a denim forum, so try to keep it fashion focused.

    I think these rules are clear, and easy to follow. These are only in place to ensure our community is a fun place to be, and a comfortable atmosphere for all.

    What happens if I break a rule ?

    Depending on the severity of the infraction, a different course of action may be taken, but the usual practice is as follows :

    1st rule break:

    Minor Offense - Corrected, A PM may have been sent, no further action taken.

    Serious Offense - A warning will be issued, this is a mark against your name letting us know you have broken a rule.

    2nd rule break:

    On your 2nd warning, you will receive a temporary ban, the length of which will depend on the severity of the incident.

    On another breach of rules:

    After this it will be assumed you will not learn your lesson, so you will receive a permanent ban, meaning you will never be able to visit the forum again.

    If you have any questions regarding the rules feel free to PM any member of site staff, who will be able to clear things up for you.
