Excellent input.

We should also add something about:

Religion (2.10): No derogatory remarks;
Language: Whilst the forum’s primary communication medium is English, we should allow other languages in Campfire/Kampvuur.
Search: Members to please use the search function before posing a question.

When do you guys think we will have the complete forum rules. All your suggestions so far seem fair.

I think the rules will always remain a work in progress, but at some point we should make a start with what we have and implement. We can always add and refine as time goes by.

It seems to me as though things have become quiet on the comments front, so perhaps we can say we are now good to go? John, you are the boss-man. What do you think?

Yes, agree, will always be WIP, but at the same time I don't want us to become too prescriptive - I think this is a fanatastic start - thanx for all the help, especially Gerrit!

There's a difference between teasing and brandbashing. I have seen the latter almost destroy a forum. You will see me teasing my Cruiser mates on LCCSA and LR mates on Overland. At the end of the day I know I drive the ultimate 4x4. :neener:
