    Winter is getting nearer, and the Moderators in the Weather Forum always start tighten things up at this time of year.

    Here are the usual rules, in case you have forgotten them:

    - The Weather Forum is to be used for weather and snowfall related topics.

    - No abuse (engage the topic not the person)

    - No bad language

    - No misleading posts or misinformation. - Posting statements of opinion like they are actual facts will generally be deleted.

    - Don't just post "wishes" or "hopes" for big dumps of snow. Unsubstantiated "predictions" are likely to attract ridicule, so it's best to explain your reasoning for a prediction.

    - Humour is OK, but keep on topic.

    - If you have a question, do a quick check to see if there is another current thread on the same topic. If you don't, you risk splitting the discussion or getting your thread locked.

    - Frivilous threads will be locked or deleted.

    - No SHOUTING for the whole post. (caps lock on)

    - If a newbie asks a technical question that has been asked before, do not ridicule him/her.(I'm not talking about a question like "How much snow will fall at Thredbo on the weekend") If you couldn't be bothered answering the question, don't post anything unhelpful. We were all newbies in the Weather Forum once upon a time....

    Let's have a good winter :thumbs:

    Thanks Sandy, maybe these rules should be applied to other topics as well.

    Is it valid to suggest that someone's claimed motivation for posting is misleading?

    As long as it doesn't derail the thread.

    Does the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plains? [​IMG]

    A moot point, but did you know that in Hertford, Hereford and Hampshire, huricanes hardly hever happen?
