Welcome to Performance Bike's forum.

This is your space to chat about anything to do with performance bikes from tuned AR80s to turbocharged Vmax's to trackdays, but we would appreciate if you take note of the following which will NOT be tolerated in the forum or in PM:

 

- Threats, abuse or libel towards any member, non-member, group or company, either explicit or implied

- No bullying, in any form, of fellow members

- The incitement of any form of religious, sexual, racial or other hatred or discrimination

- The use of excessive bad language. Swearing in thread titles is a no-go.

- Nude or pornographic images.

- Trolling*, or deliberate fishing for reaction.

- Use of multiple accounts for the purpose of questionable forum activity.

 

Anybody who does not abide by these rules can face a suspension - temporary or otherwise - of their account from this forum.

 

We reserve the right to edit any comments that we feel are not suitable.

 

Please note that posts may be used in the mag, resulting in everlasting fame and adoration among peers

*A 'troll' is an internet term for someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in a discussion forum with the intention of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.

Excessive swearing such as GENT, tit, twat, wank, fucktard, pissflaps etc will not be tolerated once the swear filter is switched on, sometime later this week, when I get round to finding the fucking thing. ;)

Why not? It's not like this forum is aimed at preteens or summat. I'd agree that excessively swearing at someone is agressive but say, for example, someone has their bike nicked then they may feel that they need to call the thieving scum sucking dick fucks need to be called GENTS, or something.

And I like swearing, it can be very funny.

All the cool kids are doing it! :D

can I make a suggestion that you either block or at least put a limit on the amount that people can put in a sig, already I have seen on this forum memebers with fahoooooking maaahhhooooosive sigs and it just looks messy and shit, if you aint carefull it will end up looking like VD did and that looked shit.

Surely there either *is* swearing or there is not.

Some people get offended much more easily than other GENTS, innit? :blink:

The .com forum had it about right, IMO but, of course, once it became common knowledge how to get round the gent filter it soon settled down anyway.

Fuck it - if the BBC can show comedy shows to the genral population where it's OK to say "fuck" then we should be able to as well.

This ain't PB-USA so I don't want swearing, nipples or blasphemy banned "in case it could corrupt".

If the moderators think a post is too sweary then they can edit it, can't they? (But I'd like to think it'd have to be an agreed decision by 2 or more moderators before any editing took place, to ensure it's not too swift)

You're all big boys and I'm confident that you lot will find your own natural balance like you did on the old site.

If it's excessive but funny, it'll stay. If it's not funny and is overly aggressive, the mods will use their discretion and prune it, or not. Easy, innit?

At the moment, there's not that actually that many words on the swear filter and unless things take a drastic turn for the worse and we're inundated with complaints, then that's how it'll stay.

Mentioned elsewhere, but can you please take Superbike out of the swear filter. Whilst it may seem amusing, we're far more likely to be talking about Superbike as a type of motorcycle than we are as another motorcycle mag.

A point Ben_ raised elsewhere.

Quoting pms is bad form

Does that depend on what is said in them? Bullying/threats for example?

If Kropotkin starts sending me intimidating messages then shouldn't I feel free to raise it?

If Gretchensghost sends me pics of him in the nuddy in the muddy with the hippos again, can't I mention it?

Or does it all have to go through mods?

I'm not posting this to have a go at Ben_ at all, please don't think that chap, I may agree with your post; but at the same time I can see the problems with that, and if someone types something into the internet, via post or PM surely they have to accept it may become public?

Tricky one there, Mitchie. I'd say that if I sent something via PM, I'd want it to be kept between myself and the recipient. If I wanted it public, I'd post it on the open forum.

Just my point of view.

Hmm. It is a tricky one, but IMO it depends on the nature of the PM. If I'd written someone a message confessing to calling myself Martha and cross dressing at weekends I'd be pretty upset if it was made public. However if I'd threatened, bullied someone or demonstrated gentish behaviour via PM (relying the receiver to keep it quiet due to it being on it being poor form to reveal) - well it would be in everyone's interest to know what an arse I was, wouldn't it?

That's where the Moderator team should be informed and it dealt with privately, still not in the public eye, IMO.

i'd like to see a rule about having only work safe thread titles.

i think the contents of threads are fair game in a warning is given, i don't want the top of the front page saying F*$& F$£"!$ when my boss walks by.
