Messages posted on our forum at http://www.ukraine2uk.info/forum remain the responsibility of the person posting those messages. Each person who posts has signed up and agreed to the forum agreement which sets posting rules and confirms their agreeing to those rules. Whiltsh we wish to encourage a wide exchange of views, the forum does not offer a freedom of speech and in the final decision on what may be posted remains with the site owner.
The site owner allows registered members to post messages without individual message approval and occasionally something inappropriate may be posted. Any of our moderators have the tools to amend or delete such posts and will do so where necessary; please note that this is only done in extreme cases, and we will do our best to resolve issues with the original poster. The moderation process is a manual one performed by volunteers, so please do not expect instant updates. We will also where practical keep the reporter(s) and other members up to date on moderation issues.
Views expressed in posts on the forum will not necessarily be the views of the forum's principals or operators, and the presence of views on the forum should not be seen as reflecting their position.
When you sign up (to the forum, or to offer sponsorship or other help, or to seek a sponsor), you trust us with information. We will use that information only for the stated purposes of matching hosts, sponsors and services and will not share it (unless required by law - not routinely anticipated) with any other parties. We reserve the right to contact you occasionally for purposes within the stated aims and objectived of the site, and we will not retain the data once it ceases to be of any conceivable use.
If you wish to see the data in your forum profile, there are tools there for you to do so and we ask you to keep it up to date. If you wish you account and details to be deleted, please let us know. Other data for matching is not retained on the web site - please ask is you woukd like a copy at any point; let us know of any corrections or it you no longer wish to be registered with us. Please note that we need to carefully validate requests to see or change data.
The Forum software uses a cookie to retain your login status and, sorry, won't work without it except for guests. Part of the signup agreement to the forum for membership includes acceptance of this.
A note on some wider matters
The principals of this website are very much aware of the need to safeguard everyone through the varous processes, including but not limited to our web site. Safeguarding subjects will be covered within our content and in how our content is moderated with a view to helping ensure the safety of all members and guest readers at all times.
The principals of this website are also very much concerned for the future sustainability of our planet and will encourage considerations and actions that are best for the environment now and into the future. However, we appreciate that it times of war great damage is done to the environment, and that the short term defence of ourselves, family, friends and countrymen may necessitate actions which are not in the interest of the current envoronment, nor in its sustainability for the future. Environmental implications will be covered within our content and actions on this site and forum.
The following sections are for your information rather than legal smallprint which you will find further up the page
Some notes on posting langauge and style
Contributions from the team running this site will be in English and Ukrainan. In order to ensure readability for our readers and transparency, your posts too should be made in one of those two languages.
The following are guidelines rather than rules
* Longer posts should start with a "management summary" to help readers quickly decide whether to read a full post.
* Where a subject is already under discussion, please follow up within that thread rather than starting a new one. This helps us keep all information on a topic together. Where appropriate, moderators and administrators will merge topics.
* Posters starting a new thread should give background to help ensure readers are aware of the context. Within a thread, there is no need to repeat large chunks of what is already in that thread.
* Abbreviation should be expanded (in brackets) when first used. IMHO "[In my Humble Opinion] this will be a great help to newcomers"
* Links, references and credits should be provided wherever possible. You are encouraged to tell people about external sources. When providing links, please check that the link is available to the public and only refer people to content behind paywalls in exceptional circumstances. Where a link has limited life, please note that if you are aware.
* Please consider the readability of what you post. You can test your text at https://readabilityformulas.com/free-readability-formula-tests.php and we suggest that you aim for a Flesch Reading Ease score above 60, and / or a Gunning Fog score below 12. See the link just above for details.
