    Just a reminder that just below the posting text box is a link to the forum code of conduct, this thing

    It's not particularly taxing or massively limiting, mostly it's just a question of common sense and treating other people with respect. There's also the wider issue that if you persistently swear on the forum, some filters will block access to the site.

    Code of Conduct

    Welcome to the OUTDOORSmagic forum.Generally speaking we┬┤re a friendly bunch who welcome new members and have a laugh at the same time as having lively debates. The forum is a resource for all members and to keep it a useful and friendly place forum users have suggested some guidelines:

    Please don┬┤t:[*]Swear. It can be offensive and it can also mean that some members can┬┤t use the site from work. If you really must use swear words please use asterisks.[*]Be abusive or make personal attacks. If you wouldn┬┤t say something to someone┬┤s face then it doesn┬┤t belong on the forum.[*]Impersonate other members deceitfully.[*]Hijack and wilfully destroy threads. The forum┬┤s a big place and thread titles and descriptions are there to help you filter what you┬┤re interested in, so please let more serious threads run broadly on topic.[*]Try to sell equipment. There's a &v=[v]]classifieds section on the site for selling your stuff, please don't annoy other members by trying to flog it on the forum. (erm, this is obviously outdateds, the rest of it isn't)


    If you repeatedly disregard these guidelines then, after a warning, you may well be barred. If we receive several complaints about a particular member via the 'Report-to-Moderator' page on the forum then that member may also be barred.

    Oh, and if you find any of this unclear or think there's something we've left out, please just shout - looks like it needs an edit for the classifieds section anyway...

    Why would you want to?

    Oh, to be clear, I'm assuming from what else you've posted in the last 24 hours that your suggestion is intended to be ironic, so apologies if I've misinterpreted that.

    Sorry, no irony intended. If, as Jon has said, posts which are distateful will be deleted it really should be added to the guidelines.

    It does seem a touch obscure Basically you have to hit the quote option on the message you want to quote from. That then stores it and activates the quote button on your reply when you start writing it.

    Cut and paste easier.
