    Thought it was about time i made a post about all the recent goings on with language etc. As i'm sure everyone is aware, especialy regulars, at Landyzone we have taken a different approach to bad language than other LR forums. Up until recently i think it's gone pretty well. Since we've had some new moderators things seem to have changed a little, whether that is just a coincidence or not i'm not sure. Either way there has only ever been one guide line, and that has been to keep harsh language off the main forums. (if anyone wishes to know what they are PM, don't use this as an excuse to use them). Something that you don't mind might easily offend others. My feeling now, is that people are beginning to take the **** a little to see how far they can push things. If this is the case i would advise said people to stop pushing because it needs to end. Once complaints start coming in we have to do something about it. So from here on in i ask that EVERYONE keep the harsh stuff from the main forums and keep it in anything goes. That goes for signatures and locations etc. I'm sure the odd thing will pop up here and there, but hey we all make mistakes. This isn't a case of being a killjoy it's just trying to keep the forum friendly for everyone.

    As far as the banning and re-instating of people over the last week or so, mistakes may have been made but once again, we're all human. The guys who are helping me to moderate the forums are doing just that. Helping me and helping the site. We have spoken about the actions taken and from now on decissions will be discussed and decided by more than one person. Hopefully that should make things better for all. All i would ask is that you bare with us untill we get some kind of system going, this is a VERY busy forum, and we're all trying our best.

    Last point i think, when infractions or warnings have been given, some of them seem to have appeared on the forum. Note the name of a PM/ PRIVATE message. A private message is private, some of you may chose to post each others messages on the board. Anyone posting private messages without the senders consent will be banned, no questions! This is a decission made by me, and anyone thinking it's crap, PM me and tell me why. Other forums have the same rules i'm sure you all know so it shouldn't be that difficult to adhere to.

    OK i think thats rant over. I'm pretty sure we can all get along fine with a little thought, whatever our opinions are. Other than that guys, keep up the good work and keep enjoying yourselves. And just remember this is a forum and not a matter of life or death.

    Cheers everyone,
    Accywingy

    when people come to my door begging/selling/preaching i answer the door and start acting like a mentalist talking to 'the voices', twitching, and making random noises(like barking and growling) they never stay for long
