Forum Aim
The Stourbridge Cycling Club message board is intended to provide an online meeting place for the cycling community - open to members and non-members alike. This should ease communication for arranging rides and social events.

General Guidelines
Please be aware, it is easy to cause offence on message boards by, for example, a poor choice of words or providing inadequate context. Thus we would urge you use diplomacy in your posts wherever controversy emerges. This isn't to say you cannot have frank exchange of views with those you know to be robust posters. However, avoid personal attacks - please stick to the subject of the debate.
If you think things are getting out of hand or you or anybody else is subject to personal attack - do not respond - contact a moderator.

Inappropriate material which is deemed unfit for our members will be removed. Please understand that a wide range of ages read our board and what may not cause offence to one age range could well offend another.

Do not post the same Topic on more than one board
Please do not duplicate posts across different boards. This confuses and annoys other posters It causes more work for the moderators. The vast majority of posters check all the sections anyway so duplicate posts will be removed without notification.
If you are not sure that you have posted on the right/correct board, the moderators will (eventually) move it to the best place.

Commercial
Postings of a commercial nature will be removed without warning, unless previously approved for posting by SCC moderators.

Registration and viewing
Anybody can read the majority of posts on this board, but registration is required in order to post and will be vetted by the moderators.
Some headings are only available for viewing and posting by Stourbridge Cycling Club members. You need to be logged in to see all available topics.
