Netweather Community - Guide
Be Nice! Everyone is welcome to express an opinion, ask a question or share a view so please respect that and treat everyone in the way you'd like to be treated.
Don't disrupt the discussions - posting really off topic, trolling (posting to get a reaction or wind up), being overly defensive of your position or just making anti-social disruptive posts isn't on and isn't what the community is about.
Trolls & Troll Hunters - While communities such as Netweather are great places for people to get together and discuss the topics that interest them. Unfortunately, some people will use this as an opportunity to stir deliberately, create negative reactions and disrupt - aka Trolls. Trolling is obviously not acceptable in the community, but equally, troll-hunting isn't the way forward either. By this, we mean calling people out as trolls within the public discussion, as it further disrupts, and can be hurtful, and unfair to those who are wrongly accused. So please don't do this - if you have a concern that someone is deliberately disrupting the forums, please report their posts, their profile or pm a member of the team. We'll then look into it asap.
Weather Guilt-Tripping - Please don't suggest people are selfish for enjoying or even looking forward to a certain weather type. Everyone has different weather preferences, but since none of us can control the weather, no-one should be made to feel guilty or foolish for liking it.
Remember this is a public forum - people from all walks of life are welcome here so please be considerate of the discussions, the topics they're covering and the people who are taking part in them.
Swearing - Please don't swear, or attempt to get around the swear filter on the forums.
Advertising / Spamming - Posts specifically created to advertise other websites, products for sale, services or anything else are not permitted without prior permission. Please contact the team if you wish to advertise something, so they can talk you through the options.
Illegal content - Please do not post anything illegal to the forums.
Use the team! If you're finding some posts annoying, think someone could be out to cause trouble, think a post doesn't belong in a discussion as it's off topic or anything else, please let the team take the slack. Just hit the report button and we'll check it as soon as possible, please don't respond to it or finger point as that can escalate any potential issue.
Enjoy your time on here - with so many interesting topics and loads of great members the Netweather community is an enjoyable place to spend time on. Sometimes discussions can get heated, though, so if you're feeling the heat and getting more annoyed than anything else, it's worth taking a break and coming back later.
We hope this helps you get the most out of the Netweather community - we're here to help if you need us and are always keen to hear feedback or ideas so please feel free to contact any member of the team if you need a question answering or have any comments you'd like to make.
Account in good standing definition
You may see that parts of the community are limited to members who's accounts are in 'good standing', which applies the vast majority of members accounts. For you account to not be considered as being in good standing, you will have had a warning during the past six months, or a posting block/suspension during the last 12 months.
