Reminder of our rules again. NO PERSONAL ABUSE

This board, as per our <b><a style='color:#000000' href=' ' target="blank">terms and conditions</a></b>, is an unmoderated board.

You acknowledge that Vital Network Ltd has no obligation to actively monitor any User Generated Content (UGC) however we retain full discretion to delete such UGC, without dialogue, at any time as granted within these terms and conditions. However, a user is solely responsible for any legal risk associated with the UGC they create, worldwide.

You may however alert us to any UGC you believe is against our terms and conditions and needs to be removed. You can do this via the alert button on all posts.

1 - Excessive swearing WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. This board is open to anyone with internet access. It's one thing swearing after a match whilst having a blowout - it's another having it in every post regardless of the subject.

2 - If you have a problem with the site or any member of the forum that you want to try to sort out, you can use the pm function. This is the correct way to address a grievance, not starting multiple threads on the various boards or by having digs within topics. If you have a complaint to make, alert the post or pm the site editor. ARGUMENTS IN THREADS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

3 - This is a forum for discussion. That means most of the time, most of you won't agree. Most people will debate the issue in hand as befits a discussion forum don't make your threads personal. If you are unable to reply without making a personal comment about somebody's belief then don't reply and save us all the favour of having to read it. You can ‘attack’ a fellow members' point of view, you cannot attack them for having that view.

4 - On every post submitted to the forum you will see an alert button (top right). Use this function to bring a particular submission to the attention of the Alerts Team. Please do not abuse the function, and please set out your reasons for believing the submission is contrary to Vital Network's terms and conditions

<b>Alerts Team</b>: Mike_Field, Deanovilla, Jonah, Villan Of The North, Villan57, Juan Mourep, Skeggy, Wurzel, sirdennis.

5 - Our Alerts Team help me respond to alerted submissions as promptly as we can, as obviously they receive notifications when I'm not online. I will not tolerate them being abused (unless they pay for the service!). We execute all alerts based on the <b><a style='color:#000000' href=' ' target="blank">terms and conditions</a></b> of Vital Network Ltd. If you disagree with their response to a particular alert, you are free to raise the matter with me directly.

6 - Can people remember as well as quoting the source to copy and paste the article LINK into the thread please and don't cut and paste the WHOLE of someone else's article on Vital, it is a copyright infringement.

7 - Multiple LOL's, yeah's etc etc are not a suitable answer to a persons comment, either say something or don't post.

8 - 100% Villa is for all Villa fans to talk about all things football. Witton Lane is off topic for all subjects other than football. PLEASE, keep the random threads and chat threads to one thread at a time, and do try to stay within the realms of the topic of the thread eg, if the topic is about films, then discuss films. It isn't that difficult a concept honest! The Open Terrace is to discuss football with away fans.

9 - Enjoy. Don't abuse others, if you don't like a poster, just don't read/reply. This is meant to be fun and we are all adults (allegedly!). You can also add them to the 'ignore' list (click on their username, then you'll see the option to add to ignore list)

<b>10 - No porn site links, pictures added or illegal streams please. </b>

11 - Please don't use cap locks in replying to threads or in the subject headings.

12 - NO TEXT TALK at all please.

13 - All hail The Fear. No? Ok, thought it was worth a try. :12:

Just to re-iterate, if there is a user you can't get on with, you can add them to your ignore list. Just click on their username, then at the bottom of that page, it has 'add to ignore list'

Don't know why I'm typing this, you've probably all got me in the ignore list already!

This is very important as authorities are cracking down on websites.

The following events relate to video streams.

You cannot do the following on our forums:

* Request an online stream for a live match
* Post a stream for a live match
* Mention that you have a stream for a live match - this may seem harsh, but you will attract PMs from those who want streams.
* Ask for, or offering, PMs or emails containing streams for live matches
* Link to places where you can find streams of live matches.
* Hack freeview codes, or links to places where you can find them.
* Link to places where you can find torrents of recorded matches.
* Link to places where you pay subscriptions for hacked streams.

The only talk of streaming matches should be for official pay services from Aston Villa FC, etc.

If you start to get itchy on match day, use Google or elsewhere to get your links. Not here.


The relevant TV companies, clubs and associations are monitoring this very closely and legal action is being taken against sites who allow these links to be posted.

Once again, warnings will be issued to those breaking these rules.

Right, you should now be able to embed youtube clips following these simple instructions!

youtube= ]

(put both on the same line can't do it here as it will 'work' and you won't see the code but for example if in {} do {youtube=}

Then put in YouTube number eg:


(again, the [ and youtube need to be on the same line)

Folks, as per our rules...

6 - Can people remember as well as quoting the source to copy and paste the article LINK into the thread please and don't cut and paste the WHOLE of someone elses article on Vital, it is a copyright infringement.


SO PLEASE DON'T quote the whole article. Quote a part and then link.


It wasn't the first time that a Dragons' Den reject struck gold.

A wine sold in its own cup that was unceremoniously booted out by the billionaire entrepreneurs from Dragons' Den has scooped a major award at the wine 'Oscars'.

then link to the rest:


As opposed to cut and pasting the whole article which means people don't click and go to the original source. It isn't fair to the original author / site not to get the traffic from it.
