Exclamation IMPORTANT - Moderated Users Group

Following was sent to several users, with more on the "in danger" list.
We depend on all our users to keep the tone of the board the way we all want it, so PM "Grant Johnson" if you see any posts which bring the tone down, or just click the Report Post icon.

We DO NOT like to have to take this step, but it's become necessary.

==================

Many HUBB users and moderators are fed up with all the noise generated by a small group of people.

It has been suggested (by people whose opinion we value) that you should be banned permanently for lowering the tone of the HUBB.

However, that would also mean we would lose the good and useful content which we know you are capable of producing. So, this is our attempt to give you all a last chance.

ALL posts by you will be moderated, which may result in some delay to the posting. IF I get tired of pressing the DELETE button on your posts, I'll just delete you and ban your ip range.

Good behaviour will get you back to your regular user group, but any transgressions will dump you back here, or LONG term, if not permanent, banning.

Private messaging is currently allowed but can be removed if abused.
Signatures are NOT allowed - before being returned to a regular user group, you must clean up your signature!

We WILL NOT allow the HUBB to become another forum killed by all the crap posts and slanging matches that turn the good folks off and keep them from coming back because they don't want to read the shit. If you think we're killjoys, by all means take your posts elsewhere!

Grant and Susan

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
