Forum Policy (Please Read Carefully)
It would seem that it is not only people new to the site that need a reminder on Site Policy, so this post can be added to this forum also.
FORUM POLICY -- [Please read carefully]
1.1 Membership has its benefits here in the forum. If you register you can
Take part in forum discussions

Get "promoted" to various ranks if you are a regular poster
...and much more.
1.2 Depor fans are highly encouraged to register, for we want to make this forum an active spontaneous place with as many international Depor fans as possible, only by registering would you be added to the list.
1.3 Users with more than 250 posts are eligible to sign up for the High Posters Usergroup. We do not automatically add you, you have to actively sign up for it. With an even higher posts count there are further advantages. Only true seekers would find their reward.
1.4 It is not allowed to have multiple accounts in this forum. If you have created one, please report it to an administrator and indicate the name you want to keep. Otherwise multiple accounts except the chronologically first one will be deleted at sight.
2. EXTRA MILE FOR REGULARS
If you are a regular, please note that you can go the extra mile to help the site administrators in some aspects of the forum. The site "administrators" and "site team" members are busy running the other aspects of the forum, so we could use some help. For instance, you could take the initiative to help us calculate the standings for the prediction league. Feel free to chip in, we would be most grateful for your help.
Deportivo-La-Coruna.com is an international website for Depor fans, so users should try to post in English at all times, since English is more or less understood by most people in most countries. If you want to use any language other than English, please use our International room (other languages forum). We will allow to use other languages in those threads, off course this topics will be ruled by the same policies that we present in this Forum Policy.
If you are writing posts in other languages different to English in other forums different to the International room, please include an English translation to accompany your post. For example,
Me gusta mucho el Depor.
I like Depor very much.
This is to ensure that as many people as possible understand your post. There is no reason to exclude anyone in an international forum. Thanks for making this forum a friendlier place for all.
Worried that your English isn't good enough? Don't. Because as long as it can be understood, it's fine. Most of our members aren't native English speakers either and making mistakes is normal.
4. MULTIPLE THREADS
Please DO NOT create multiple threads with the same subject. If you would be patient to search the forum carefully, you might find old topics which discuss the very things you want to discuss. There might even be "treasures" in old posts -- just be patient enough to dig. We need your cooperation to keep this forum neat and tidy... please do not litter it with multiple threads with overly similar subjects. In other words, do not start new topics like switching on the tap for water. Have mercy on the moderators who have to do the cleaning up.
5.1 You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
5.2 Deportivo-La-Coruna.com has ZERO tolerance for posts that taunt Deportivo fans/club/players. Taunting includes any post designed to insult Real Club Deportivo La Coruna, but not limited to, the club, its players and fans. Such posts generally contain elements intended to humiliate the club and incite Depor fans to anger.
5.3 If you are here on goodwill and determine to be diplomatic in your posts to have healthy discussion with Depor fans, welcome. IF YOU ARE HERE TO CREATE TROUBLE, LEAVE THIS FORUM IMMEDIATELY. Do not waste your time annoying/taunting the majority here for whom this forum is targetted. Do not be a black sheep representative here for your club.
5.4 If you are a Depor fan, please exercise self-control and DO NOT REPLY TO TAUNTS. If you do, you are giving the taunters the negative attention they desire and would encourage them to continue their vandalism. Instead, leave the babblers alone and they will get bored and decide to get a life.
5.5 No racist or sexist remarks will be tolerated on this forum. Remember that this is an international forum for fans of both genders and all ages, so this forum is not just for the adult/adolescent European male only. So ensure that your posts are respectful to men and women all over the world.
6. POSTING ISSUES
6.1 There are some small things to observe when posting. Please don't post in all capital letters, all bold or all text in a colour that is too hard to read.
6.2 Avoid posting consecutive posts in the same topic. If you have something else to add, please use the edit button instead.
6.3 No commercial advertisements are allowed.
6.4 In all posts (including Private Messages) and signatures: No sexually explicit content, be it pictures or words. Neither do we condone sexually provocative phrases/jokes, whether or not you mean it. This site is meant to be suitable for family viewing. Keeping this is mind, please also refrain from using too many explicit expletives.
6.5 Please observe basic netiquette. Do not start or be involved in any "flame wars". Respect each other, agree to disagree if need be.
6.6 Please do not embed any pictures which are TOO large in your posts. If you must include large pictures, please post the url as a link rather than an embedded picture. The acceptable size for signatures is 600 pixels wide x 80 pixels high or equivalent. If you use text in your signature (either underneath or on top of), it is approximately equivalent to 15 pixels high for standard sized text. Please take into account everything that goes into your signature when adding up the height.
Your signatures should not disturb users from reading posts, for example, no rapid blinking or distracting animation is allowed. Please do not post pictures of irrelevant/gory/violent/sexually provocative/offensive content.
6.7 Respect the Site Team and take their warnings seriously. If you are a well-behaved member, you should not be getting any warnings. Warnings may come via Private Message (or less often, email), or in special cases, openly on the forum. There are consequences for failure to heed the warnings.
We understand that sometimes the world isn't the peaceful home in which we want to live, but deportivo-la-coruna.com wasn't created to defend or follow any kind of political or ideological movement. Our members come from different parts of the world, and of course, their political ideas are really different and sometimes they are completely opposite.
For that reason, we believe that the best way to promote peace is to respect all postures, religions and ways of thinking. This site will not tolerate any discussion about the current development of world politics, their religious thoughts and especially not judge our members and players for their nationality.
