Hi

 

I was looking for the rules on what can be put into a general discussion thread but I couldn't find any.

 

As means to broaden discussions in 'General' I was trying to find out if it was permitted to mention or put a link to another forum or other forums which do not discuss other vehicles, religion or politics.

There is no hard or fast rule  we discuss other cars frequently indeed many members have different makes and in some cases have moved on from Zed.

 

The general rule is avoid offending others.  So assuming no one is rude, or makes people feel uncomfortable the moderators let most things go.  Generally we have to moderate very little as most people get along well here and we do allow a degree of grace to disagree and challenge views as long as its in a respectful way.  Apart from spammers I have never banned anyone as a mod.

 

Clearly some topics are likely to cause or risk causing greater offence, and we have little to no swearing on the forum, unless it masked, mainly because Children may access the forum, so pornography is likely to be removed by me as a Mod.  To be discussed by others in the Moderator sections.

 

So there we go.  No rules just a easy going, respectful and cheerful place.

General is general.

 

I don't think that there are any issues with placing links to other forums. If the topic is offensive it will be investigated by either the Moderators or the committee and actioned accordingly, with a PM to the offending poster, whether that be the OP or a subsequent post. 

 

haha, what Les said

I agree and support everything above, the general interest in other subjects has nothing to do with any of the above but I suspect the subject matter may be highly debatable, it is from that point of view that I asked the question.

 

The subject matter is based on media coverage and what individuals believe from it.

 

It is just open discussion, lets say e.g. JFK, 911, UFO's and the programmes which are available.

 

Its views I have an interest in and thought it might make for good debate.

All good, but perhaps more suitable to the Stuff area (or an area below it)?

 

I would consider the 350Z General Discussion to be loosely based on the 350Z :)

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - You'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Better gearbox though.

I agree with Paul about the above.. the "350Z" areas are for discussion of that specific model.
Other stuff goes in "Stuff".


Now why do I need to be discussed? Yours, JFK

There is also the "Tangents & Tantrums" area, for letting off steam about any subject (bearing in mind the restrictions mentioned by Les earlier). This separate room was created in 2006, mainly for Mark and me, because Giles & the Committee realised that asking us politely was having no effect at all :).

 

 

Edit - Just had a look at my first thread in T&T (I was right, it was 2006) - http://forums.nissan...-had-a-thought/

If you start off in stuff and it is not suitable i am sure one of the fantastic moderators will move it and advise go for it.

If it helps to place this, the theme is on open minded discussion on events which are covered up, kept quiet, lied about, and is said to be corruption based in the  main media and challenged by or covered by independent TV like Richard D Hall and other independent TV shows which I was also involved in personally.

 

other subjects could be 

 

Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in 1966 and has had an impostor stand in for him since.

 

Titanic was not the ship which sank.

 

JFK was murdered

 

911 was not what we are told.

 

77 was faked.

 

and much more.

 

I have a very strong interest in fake news and cover ups, I just wondered if people on the forum had similar interests and would like to add their input to these subjects and many others like them. I find no shortage of opinions in other places we frequent and find it interesting.

Oh!? Oh dear. I - and I think Chubbs - was hoping for the latter.

Otherwise I think we'll just spend lots of time winding each other up and changing no-one's point of view.

The reason being it makes the place tidier and it's easier to scroll down a specific section to find relevant content.

But, as said above, we can always move stuff without a problem :)

I'm looking forward to the new topics :bounce:
