Rum Ration Aims, Policy and Complaints Procedure

AIMS

The aim of Rum Ration (in such that it has one) is to provide a useful, informative and amusing site for people with an interest in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Contrary to duty rumour we are not promoting the overthrow of HMG nor do we exist to toe the party line and users can expect to find both reasoned argument and complete rubbish within our pages. It exists for all.

PRINCIPLES

1. Although we have no issues with challenging the "official" viewpoint we do not wish to bring the wrath of the authorities down upon the site.
2. We wish to avoid attracting those with extremist views, personal agendas or mental health problems to the site.
3. Ultimately we would like the site to make some money but would settle for having our costs covered in the interim! Plans to relocate Rum Ration HQ to the Bahamas are currently on hold.

POSTING STANDARDS

The following describes acceptable posting in the site, which is split in to three levels of "seriousness", starting from the liberal end of the site. Please observe the regulations - they are to ensure that there is something for everyone. A varied and large user group is in the interests of all. Obviously regulations in the Rough Bit also apply to the next category up and so on.

Applicable to all boards:

a. Breaches of Operational Security (OPSEC).
b. Use of real names.
c. Hardline extremist views and racism in particular.

1. The Rough Bit.

The Rough Bit (Diamond Lil's and the Gash Barge) is designed to allow our users to conduct the pointless bickering, personal vendettas and utter drivel that is the mainstay of any web site. We strongly discourage anyone who is under 18, easily offended or with liberal tendencies from entering this forum. That being said, it is still moderated and the points made above are unacceptable.

2. General Boards.

These are the bulk of the site and consist of everything not included in the Serious Boards and the Rough Bit. Banter, obtuse posts and ignorant comment are often the norm but we will moderate (ie police) against:

a. Thread hijacking where an argument/slagging match is carried over from elsewhere.
b. Totally pointless points.
c. Extreme swearing and abuse of other users.

3. Serious boards

Current Affairs, Finance, Naval History, Charity

Our serious boards are heavily moderated as we aim to keep them sensible and relevant for those who wish to engage in serious discussion. The following are not tolerated:

a. Taking thread off topic
b. Moderate swearing / abuse of other users.
c. Non-contributory posting ie pointless ranting.

MODERATORS

The site moderators exist to ensure that the site is managed in accordance with the policy detailed above. They are to decide how the policy is implemented in their own forum and may wish to post details of their moderation policy. Please repect the moderators' decisions, but if you have any complaints about moderation policies, write to [email protected] or to one of the "COs" using the site instant message system.

ADVERTISERS

Rum Ration does not endorse any of the products advertised on the site. Additionally advertisers are aware that they may receive negative comment in the forums. Our policy is not to give advertisers any editorial control or protection however users are requested to bear in mind that they pay for the site and we would prefer to retain their goodwill. Any strong negative comments about an advertiser should be directed to [email protected].
