We regard our forum as a  rather special community, a gathering place of friends and new friends are always welcome. Please respect this and do not use our forum just as a means to promote your own websites, forums or blogs. This is  prohibited on most forums, but we are happy to accommodate a few personal links by established members who have contributed to our community for a reasonable length of time. Blatant promotional links to  other  websites in posts or in  profiles, by new members, will be treated as spam  and removed. If they are then reposted the account will be removed.
