Network protocol: https://vitalfootball.co.uk/termsandconditions/

Our rules:

This board is an unmoderated board. As per current legal best practice, we rely on you to alert any offensive posts.

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 report button (bottom left). 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

Alerts Team: The Fear, Mike_Field, Deanovilla, Villan57, sirdennis, JuanPabloAngel.

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!). 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.

You also do not have the right to use images unless you have bought them. If you put up football or other images, be aware if we get contacted with a bill, Vital will not be responsible for the charge, you will be. Linking to tweets is fine, using images without permission is not.

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!

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)

10 - No porn site links, pictures added or links illegal sites. If you ignore this, I will ban you, no questions asked.

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.

Just a reminder so we don't all get in trouble/infringe copyright:

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.

eg:

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:

http://money.aol.co.uk/2012/10/12/dragons-den-reject-wins-major-wine-award/?ncid=webmail14

***********

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.

Pretty important mind you, had a couple flagged up from another site, whereas we'd look and think it a bit petty, the papers don't!

In all seriousness it is very important, people get proper teasy about it, and they have the law on their side, we have to be careful what images we use on eBay etc, normally if there is an infringement they will email first to say can you take it down, we've had companies that WE deal with get eBay to take our product down for counterfeit reasons even though we bought it from THEM, lol, that winds me up but they're just protecting their product, no different to an article etc

I'm sure they're delighted to have us use their work, but, and quite rightly want you to link it so you are contributing to their click count.
