Hi Everyone, :)

We have decided to start this thread, as Messages we have posted in Questions for the Mods have got swallowed up with all the others.

We would just like to start of by saying that...


Sandra and I give our Time Freely (we get nothing at all for doing this :rolleyes:  ) to ensure the smooth running of the Forum, we do have lives ourselves outside of the Forum and we are not sat here 24/7 ..That said ..as Sandra and I are on different time zones , part of the time the board will have little or no coverage....but please be assured we will delete any spam posts and flag the members along with anything else that needs doing,as soon as one of us is available.

Thanks

Louise and Sandra

Hello Everyone, :D

Can we just clarify re: these people that keep leaving strange posts on the Forum..


#1....threads that start with the titles ....."Just wanted to say Hello"....."" I am glad I finally registered"......"I am the New Guy"...to name a few :rolleyes: .....are Spammers......these will include Links in the post.

#2 Remember.........Do Not click on any thing in the Link...even if they offer Free Tickets (Kidding)!!! :lol:

#3.Unless the member has posted within a Thread, which they do sometimes!! :rolleyes:

#4..Please don't visit the Profile of these members, you can 100% Guarantee they are spammers, and will have links in their profiles too...again DO NOT click on any links, they may contain a Virus!!.

#5..Please DO NOT post after one of these members, just ignore them, lets not give the satisfaction of knowing we have read their posts ;) .... we will remove them , as and when we become available......unlike the old days the Forum is not as busy as it used to be :rolleyes: , every one has taken to Twitter and Facebook :rolleyes: , therefore we have no need to sit her 24/7 .......... anymore :mellow: ...which is sad !!!!!!.

Only report suspicious posts that are with in threads, as sometimes ,unless we trawl through all the threads,(and we don't have the time to do this :rolleyes:
 ) they will get missed!.... Please DO NOT REPORT stand alone threads, we can see these when we log in , and we will remove and flag the member as soon as one of us is available.....That said we are extremely grateful for letting us know when they are posted ......but you should be enjoying the Forum, and not worrying about these spammers!! ;)

Thanks

Louise and Sandra

Please can we also make you aware of having email addresses etc in your Profiles.....many of these spammers spend a lot of the time viewing the Community index, we can only assume they are searching for emails , Blogs etc......we would advise that you DO NOT have such information in your Profiles, and that you only give this information to people you know.

Thanks

Quoting of posts

Please can we ask that you please DO NOT quote posts, as this makes it harder for members to read, when having to scroll through all the quotes....if you need to reply to a member please use @..members name, and then post your reply.

Any quoted posts found , will be deleted without further communication.

Social Media Messages from the Guys

Please can we keep ALL social Media messages in this thread
HERE , so that ALL members can see them, and NOT have them dotted all over the forum, or in threads of their own. Any found will be merged into the thread.

 

Thanks

Newsletter

 

Hi Everyone,

 

It seems a few are having problems signing up for the Newsletter on the Main page , I have contacted Admin , who have contacted management and it seems they’re still in the process of fixing the issue. In the meantime, they have asked us to direct fans here for now

Free Download of New Album

 

Hi Everyone, :) 

 

It has been Brought to my attention (thanks Nora :) ) that there is a website offering a Free Download of the New Album, I have contacted Admin about this , and they have advised that it looks like a spam website......so if you come across any website offering a Free Download...PLEASE DO NOT click on any links

 

Thanks

 

Louise

Please can we remind you about Photo's containing Children.....
 
CHILDREN 
 
Can we just remind you that this is the Internet, and tho' we do our best to run a safe site for our members, you do not have to be registerd here to look at the site. So please think about what pictures you post and pictures of Children are not allowed to be posted on the forum. 
 
Sadly, some people would take advantage of that. 
 
The above can be found in the Guidelines  
HERE , even though the recent photo's have been with the Guys, we have to try and adhere to the Guidelines set out by Admin, and try and make the Forum a safer place

 

Thanks! :)

Hi Everyone  :) 
 
As the moderators do not speak any language apart from English, we would be greatful if ALL posts made in the Tour sections, are in English, where possible ;) , so that we are able to help out if there are any problems, (Translators are not always right :rolleyes: and we don't want to make mistakes by using them ;)  ) and so that it makes it easier when we have to tidy up the threads (so we don't delete something we shouldn't  :unsure: ).
 
Many Thanks
 
Louise

Hi Everyone, :) 
 
We felt that since there will be NO Moderator Coverage from the 19th December to the 3rd of January, due to our Holiday we have taken the decision to have all New Memberships to the Forum suspended for 2 weeks as from the 17th December, this was due to the recent number of members joining and posting spam posts and it was getting out of hand.  :rolleyes: 
 
There may be the odd one or too, that slipped through the net before the ban, we always do our best to catch them, but as Sandra and I are on different time zones, there is a time when the forum isn't covered, and they slip through, but if I am passing and I see any standalone posts,I will deal with them, NO need to REPORT them ( I will not deal with those in threads, as they do no harm , just continue chatting!)
 
Also should your thread exceed the 100 pages, please keep chatting, and a new thread will be done in January. 
 
 
 
Merry Christmas Everyone!.....see you next year!
 
Louise  x and Sandra x

Hi Everyone :)

 

 

Seen as the Concert reports are going to be upon us shortly :) ​, we thought we should ask now that you please DON'T quote posts / pictures....esp when the post you are replying too is directly above.....it makes it harder for others to read :rolleyes: ​....if you feel the need to reply to a particular member please put @ and the members name

 

Any quoted posts WILL be deleted, without further communication, to make it easier for others to read the threads....(this also applies to existing threads too :))

 

 

Thanks

CONCERT PHOTO'S
 
Please can we ask that any Concert Photo's /Videos (even if not taken by you) are posted in the relevant Concert thread, and NOT in other threads.....seems pointless having a Tour section if they are going to be dotted around the Forum, and it would make it easier for others to see if they were all in one place. ;) 
 
Thank you  :)

Hi Everyone, :)

Please can we ask that

ALL Concert Material...Photo's / Video's are posted in the relevant Concert thread......there really is NO point of having concert threads if people are going to post in other threads.



Thanks

Hi Everyone, :)

As the Forum is deadly quiet these days, we are going to retire the 100 page rule change. Please just continue to chat away. :D

Happy Chatting :D

Hello Everyone,

I would just like to say, that the Moderators work as a Team, we correspond about everything!!...we try and keep the Forum running as smooth as possible, sometimes there are members who come on here, with the only reason of causing trouble, we have had one such member recently, who only EVER has nasty comments to make, and then leaves not to been seen again till the next time...... we get no thanks for doing this Job, and as it stands at the moment , the forum is dying, and this is so upsetting to see, and gets us down, so maybe our comments come across the wrong way, we are ONLY human....but we also don't need sarcastic comments made to us....treating people with with Respect and Kindness works both ways, because if we both stepped down, then I would imagine they would close this place, seen as they are not bothered anymore!

 

Thanks

 

The Mods.
