  13. We also refer to a post we made a month ago in another thread...... The reality is that a guest in our "living room" has felt compelled to leave because of how they have been made to feel by other guests. Many others guests have chosen to stop contributing to the forums citing the sustained actions of a small group of people. So be aware of how your posts impact other people's feelings, the quality of discussion, and the inclusivity of the forums. There's no problem when fair points are made but trolling will not be tolerated. To the users who were given a warning via PM.... our fingers are currently hovering over the 'ban' button....
  14. Some friendly advice to 'Zero Waste', the user who started the thread. We try to keep posts dealing with the similar points in a single thread. Here's the guidance from the "Forum use - guidelines and netiquette" - https://www.shetlink.com/index.php?/topic/1239-forum-use-guidelines-and-netiquette/ I'll do a little moderating just now to combine your threads into one We haven't given it the most inspiring title, so please feel free to suggest something else!
  15. Poll added. It would be splendid if folk could spread the word and share this thread on social media to get a meaningful number of votes.
  16. We can set up a poll. Getting the question right will be key. How about "Should women be able to participate in Lerwick Up Helly-Aa as squad members? Yes / no" Give this post a like if you think that covers it, or make a suggestion
  17. We refer users to our Guidelines and Netiquette section and urge you to consider how your conduct on the forums help or hinder these objectives. The reality is that a guest in our "living room" has felt compelled to leave because of how they have been made to feel by other guests. Many others guests have chosen to stop contributing to the forums citing the sustained actions of a small group of people. So be aware of how your posts impact other people's feelings, the quality of discussion, and the inclusivity of the forums.
  18. The classifieds are free apart from the accommodation for sale/rent and commercial/trades sections (we've got bills we need to pay )
  19. A note on the use of quotes from the Forum use guidelines and netiquette
  20. Whilst much of the information relating to this topic may already be in the public domain, please be mindful of the emotive nature of the subject and the potential distress that discussing traumatic events from the past may cause.
  21. Thread locked. Let's move on
  22. Re: the accusations made about this mix https://hearthis.at/number-seven-cp/030218/ We see no evidence to back this up e.g. A reference is made to 'voices' at 20:08 which are part of the original track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv86NJdQnm4 A reference is made to 'voices' at 59:13 which are also part of the original track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdVEqGFztkM We could go on....
  23. For the 3rd time today, if you believe a post breaches the Shetlink Terms and Conditions, use the 'Report' button below the post and be very specific with your reason. Furthermore... "If a Shetlink member is deemed by the moderators as being unnecessarily negative, antagonistic and hostile, and are damaging productive conversation, then they will be warned and ultimately banned." Consider this as a warning.
