It's been a year...

...since we had the issues referred to in the forum sticky and things have been running quite smoothly for some while. Is it time to either change the title or even remove the sticky completely after all the rules are still available for all to see?
What do others think?

Re: It's been a year...

I'm not so sure to be honest. Yes I'd like to see it gone but you must admit, it does serve a useful reminder to keep people in line.
Has it really been a year already?  Shocked

Re: It's been a year...

Some of the protagonists have since gone and I doubt if any new members would take the time to go read through posts from that long ago to see what happened.
I indicated at the time it was added that it doesn't look good and I still feel the same.
Perhaps I should have made this topic a poll - Should it stay or should it go? Can a poll be added to a thread?

@mav can you not modify your first post and add on a poll?

I did check but it seems not Sad
If a mod could help change this to a poll or lock this and I'll start a new thread.
Shall I start a poll as to whether this thread should be made into a poll Grin Grin Grin

Actually ,I didn't even realise it was there,I just flick past it automatically now, maybe it's good for New readers to read it...just modify it a tad.

It's outlived its usefulness and is now only an advertisement for trouble.
The rules are clear enough elsewhere.
It should be long gone.

Yet trouble doesn't seem to be taking note of this advert and coming to see us  Huh

Actually I disagree. Yes if you go prowling for them you'll find them but i wouldn't say they are clear or easy to find - hence i've broken them many times.

Re: It's been a year...

Been a while since I registered but most forums have a link to the rules before you complete registration and any new/changes to the rules have been announced so I don't see any excuse when falling foul of them, even unintentionally.

Re: It's been a year...

Rules or no rules some people just ignore them no matter what when they think they have something to prove. In my opinion there was no need for the sticky as the moderators could of just taken swift action with those who wish to disrupt the community. I suspect the forum at times is quite fair in letting everyone have an opinion but maybe the mods should just get tough. Rules are meant to be broken? if they are broken remove the one who wishes to break them. Their responsible for their own actions.
