This Forum has been set up by a group of like-minded enthusiasts who share an interest in Scottish war memorials. The hope is that it will be a place to share information about memorials and a place where members can help each other with their research. To make this a friendly forum to visit and use there are a few guidelines which should be followed:

* Any queries and requests should be posted in the Queries & Requests section and not in the Civic Memorial sections

* Keep the information in the posts to the subject under discussion. The discussions in the memorial threads should remain on-topic as much as possible. Off-topic matters should be started in another thread in the General or Queries & Requests section of the forum.

* Before starting a new memorial thread please use the search facility to check if it is already on the forum. For civic memorials it may already be posted under the parish name rather than the town name e.g. Barry / Carnoustie

* This is an English language forum. Please make sure your posts can be understood by anyone visiting the site. If you do use another language please provide a translation.

* Please DON'T SHOUT. Using capital letters on a forum is generally considered to be shouting. Lower case text is more friendly. Likewise, please refrain from using "text speech" - full sentences please, we're not limited to a word count!

* It's OK to point out errors or inaccuracies in other posts but keep it civil, and if you are correcting another's mistake please be prepared to be corrected yourself another time.

* Please read over any post you've typed before submitting it. Make sure it is clear to everyone what you are trying to communicate. What may seem acceptable to you may not be taken the same way by others.

* If you have received help or assistance from a forum member, it is common courtesy to acknowledge that help and thank them. You would do it in "real life", please do it here.

* If you feel aggravated by a post please do not reply immediately, take your time before replying and keep it civil.

* Posts that are abusive, threatening, or in any way offensive are not acceptable. The forum is moderated and any posts which breach this guideline will be removed and the member warned.

* Personal attacks are not acceptable. Any posts which breach this guideline will be removed and the member warned.

* If you feel that someone is breaching these guidelines and it has not been picked up by a moderator please let a moderator know. The Moderator will then take any necessary action they feel appropriate. Private complaints made to a moderator will be treated in confidence.

* Members who breach any of the guidelines will be warned and if the situation warrants it they will be removed from the forum.

* Moderators decisions are final.

The Moderators are currently David McNay, Adam Brown, DerekR (Derek Robertson) and dhubthaigh (Mark Duffy), in addition to several "area" moderators who look after their particular regional section.
