Vital/Talk of the Tyne Forum Guidelines

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 <b><a style='color:#000000' href=' ' target="blank">terms and conditions</a></b> and needs to be removed. You can do this via the alert button on all posts.

1. 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.

2. This is a forum for discussion. That means for the majority of the time, most of you won't agree.

A lot of people will debate the issue in hand as befits a discussion forum but try not to 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 everyone the bother of having to read it. You can ‘attack’ a fellow members' point of view, you cannot attack them for having that view.

From time to time, we may encounter an argument and whilst they may come across as damaging or ruining the forum, constructed or acted out in the right manner, they can do good.


3. 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/ToTT's terms and conditions

Alerts Team: TNMW, Birdys, Poisoned Monkey

The Alerts Team help us respond to alerted submissions as promptly as they can, as obviously they receive notifications when the site editor is not online. Vital/ToTT will not tolerate them being abused (unless they pay for the service!). We execute all alerts based on the terms and conditions of Vital Network Ltd. If you disagree with their response to a particular alert, you are free to raise the matter with Vital directly.

4. 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/ToTT, it is a copyright infringement.

5. Talk of the Tyne is mainly for all NUFC fans to talk about all things football and more.

We're a tolerant bunch who also welcome rival fans to discuss many topics on the main forum.
Our off topic section is The VIP Section. It's an invitation only section where members will be invited after a set period of posting on the main board. It contains subjects that may offend, so if invited, bear that in mind. A strictly 18+ forum.

6. 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)

7. No porn site links, nude pictures added, extreme/gore or illegal streams please on the main ToTT forum. That's what the VIP section is for, in order to protect any innocent members/children who may stumble upon the forum.

8. Do not post racist or pedophile comments or insinuate them.

(Breaking of either of these rules COULD result in prosecution. If so, IP addresses will be released to the authorities, including solicitors with full backing from the site).

9. We don't want swear words in thread titles or usernames (Words beginning with C or F for example)- if so, they will be deleted or edited.

10. Any publishing of Personal Messages are subject to be deleted as they are designed to be private.

11. As it's a public forum, we ask for members not to choose pornographic, offensive or graphic avatars as they could scar an innocent person for life.

12. Promotion of a site or continous reference to a particular place in order to self publicise will be subject to deletion unless permission is granted by admin of ToTT
