    Hi all,

    Please make yourselves familiar with the new UKAPS Forum Rules and Guidelines.

    They are for the benefit of the entire UKAPS Membership.

    Thanks.

    The italicised part of rule 6 is a welcome addition. A good balance, in my opinion. You don't want to drive off investment, but you don't want the content of the forum to be compromised by vested interests. I look forward to seeing how it operates in practice.

    As for the italicised part of rule 7, is libel a real possibility? Can't you add a disclaimer which says the views represented on this forum don't necessarily represent the views of the ukaps administration team?

    Unfortunately not. If it's on the UKaps website or forum then its UKaps that will get in trouble. Even ISP's have problems with members putting libel content on their websites, discussion groups, etc.
