Failure to follow the above rules may result in a warning or ban from a member of the moderation team. To maintain a helpful and friendly forum just follow these!

  • Personal attacks: Whether direct or insinuated, also known as flaming, goading etc, posts that are designed only to berate or insult another. Posts of this nature will not be tolerated.
  • Be respectful at all times: This is a forum where people will state their opinions, do remember that not everyone is going to agree with you. Disagreements conducted in a sensible and responsible manner are fine. Do not get overly angry/upset because someone may not agree, do not insult or swear at others because your opinion differs with theirs.
  • Spamming: We don't like it, you don't like it, don't do it! This includes posting several times to get post count up, reviving very old/dead threads, sending PM's repeatedly to members and/or the moderation team especially when asked not to.
  • NSFW posts and photos: This is an open forum. Do not post vulgar posts or photos or anything deemed 18+. We do have an 18+/extreme section on the forum, you can post links to 18+ images/posts there as long as you warn other users clearly.
  • Photos/Videos: Only post images that are in the public domain or that you have permission to post.
  • Sales: We have a classified section for personal sales. Any sales deemed to be commercial will be removed.


  • The forum is predominantly run by a voluntary group of moderators. They are not associated with the shop, they cannot help with product enquiries.
  • Decisions made by the moderation team are final. They will not be up for discussion via the forum, via PM or via any other method.
  • Continual PM-ing or posting about moderation team decisions will lead to a ban.

REMEMBER: Membership to this forum is not a right, we do not enter into any contract or agreement with you, these forums are provided on a voluntary basis and your membership can be removed at any time.


  • Unlike many other forums we have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drama and flaming.
  • Exceptions will not be given when attacks are completely obvious, personal in nature and/or continue outside the realm of the forum, ie other sites, PM etc
  • Drama is NOT accepted here nor will it ever be.

It makes us all very happy that the vast majority of members automatically abide by these common sense and considerate rules just as you would treat people in day to day life, however there will always be a small few who can't/don't/won't and this is one of the reasons we are here.


A few useful tips for those who have recently joined us:

  • You will need 5 posts in order to make your own thread and 10 to post links/photos - this is a spam prevention measure and not there to annoy you or because we're mean. You can post links by missing the http/www off if you really can't make 10 posts.
  • Do not spam to get to your post count, there's loads of threads where you can get your post count up in a few moments.
  • If you have an urgent question please be respectful that this is not a service, reposting, bumping threads in short spaces of time and PM-ing admin/moderators is not a way to get your answer fast. Also please remember this is a UK based forum so there may be a time difference to take into account.
