Sorry to have to do this but there have been a rise in instances that I feel I need to address this issue.

If any of you feel that a particular forum member is not being nice such as being rude, disrecpectful, uses foul language or being divisive on this forum, please let us know by private email (whona@whona.com) so we can take the necessary action. Sometimes the postings come so fast and quick, we are not able to catch it in time to do something about it.

By all means feel free to express yourself but do so within these limits. We want this forum to remain family friendly and everyone to be respectful and nice.

I've found a good warning system that you could introduce. Here it is; http://help.forumotion.com/t11187-personalized-profile-fields-warning-system

It's worked great on my own forum. Hope you guys find good use of it!

OK, recent events have made it necessary for me to remind everyone about our policy of "BEING NICE". Mean spirited postings and continuous whinings will not be tolerated.

If you have an issue with a poster, please drop us an email ASAP with the specifics of your problem so we can take care of the issues. Our email is whona@whona.com. If you want us to help, you need to tell us the specific problem and not generalisations, which is akin to hearsay.

Also, please DO NOT USE the email link on this forum to contact us as we won't see your message until we log in to the forum. Emails sent directly to us at our whona@whona.com email gets immediate attention.

It is not our intention to prohibit anyone from enjoying this forum and you have every right to share your opinions so long as you keep within our "be nice" policy. Anyone who consistently antagonizes other forum members or causes unnecessary drama will be asked to leave. We try to be fair and will give you an opportunity to tell us your side of the story. Decisions to permanently ban a member is not done lightly and we have only done that three times, I believe (could be more).

I commend the forum moderators who have worked very hard to keep this forum a nice place for fellow Doctor Who fans to hang out. They are volunteers and not paid by us and we owe them a debt of gratitude for helping us out in this way. If you have an issue with them, let us know but again we require specifics.

Trust everyone will take note of this and get back to keeping this forum a nice place to be.

We realize that not everybody can get along all the time because of our different personalities. So, if there is a particular member you want to ignore, try this:

1) Left-click upon the member's name or avatar and that will send you to that person's user-page.
2) Look for the "add to my foes list" in the hyperlink (that's the "ignore" feature.)
3) Click it and that particular user's posts will not appear, just a header line asking if you want to view them on a "post by post" basis.

Note that this is not a perfect solution as the effectiveness is diminished if someone quotes the person whom you have "ignored", but hey, it is better than nothing.

Another thing to remember.

Opinions and likes are personal. We all don't enjoy everything in the same way.

Everyone needs to be more mindful that no one person's opinion is wrong or unworthy.

Also, just because you read something you disagree with, you don't have to respond to it. If you do, please be respectful of the other point of view if you discuss it further, lest you cross WhoNA's "Be Nice" rule.

Administrator/Moderator
