A handful of individuals are making this forum borderline unusable for the vast majority who just want to discuss Hull FC and RL in general. That's going to stop. If you can't get your point across without insulting someone then don't bother to post, or else the choice will be taken away from you.
Going forward there's going to be a tighter interpretation of the AUP applied on here. Derailing threads and throwing insults around will result in formal warnings and subsequent bans for repeat offenders. Outright trolling that falls short of an AUP breach will be dealt with similarly as per new guidelines from Admin.

Some clarification since people seem to be struggling with thread derailment:
1. Derailment is considered to be raising any topic that could not reasonably be a part of the thread topic. This includes, but is not limited to:
[*]The standard of coaching at the club.
[*]Behaviour of past coaches/players.
[*]Behaviour of and/or past posts by other board members.
[*]Discussions of issues at other clubs.
2. If you see a post which you believe derails a thread please DO NOT respond to that post. This only makes derailment worse and makes it difficult to identify and deal with the original offender without also punishing everyone who responded. Simply report the post and move on.
Moderation on RLFANS is a process which includes Admin and requires evidence. Moderators do not have carte blanche to ban whoever they see fit. Neither are they logged on 24 hours a day to deal immediately with issues as they arise. If anyone has any problem with the moderation of this or any other board I encourage them to make this known directly to the Admin team.
