Rules and Requirements

Post by Admin on Mon Nov 11, 2013 11:47 am


The Tayside and Angus Gaming Network forums are privately run by a team of moderators who volunteer their time.  These moderators reserve the right to remove any and all content submitted by users and take action against any user who submits content that violates the Forums Rules.

If a user chooses to break any of the Forum rules, they will receive a verbal warning for their first offence, depending on the severity of the offence.  This warning will be issued by a private message from either a moderator, club official or an admin outlining the offence.

If they choose to break one of our rules again within an undefined timeframe, they will receive a suspension of 7 days in which time they will not be able to access the forums or their account.

Severe breaches of the rules will result in a permanent ban.  This decision will not be taken lightly and will be issued only be an admin. 

If you do not feel your warning/suspension or ban is justified, you may contact any of the Admins by PM or email us.
