The Gentlemen's Club - Charter. Last updated 17/09/2010
This forum is for discussion on any issue relating to general men's health, mental health, sexual health, the role of men in modern society, the pressures on men to succeed and anything else related to being a man.
We'd like posters to be aware that sometimes people really are looking for help or really want to discuss an issue seriously. There's nothing wrong with a bit of banter and having a laugh but please consider that a thread on 'penis size' or 'hairy back' may be a matter of great merriment for you but the original poster may really want some serious answers and discussion. Just take every thread on a case-by-case basis.
Basic Manners and TXTspeak
This forum is here for the benefit of all the men of boards.ie, but all genders and sexualities are welcome.
Remember that this is just the internet. Don't take things too seriously, try not to get hot under the collar.
Personal abuse is not tolerated on boards.ie and will not be allowed here. Anything of this nature will warrant a sanction automatically. Remember the golden rule of "attack the post not the poster"
No graphic, explicit or unsuitable images. Adding 'NSFW' is not enough.
TXTspeak is not allowed on this forum for the benefit of all readers. Please take the time to format your responses in a manner that makes them readable to others. Saying that though we all make spelling mistakes, don't stress about these, you can go back and edit posts etc afterwards if you notice it.
If you find a post offensive, upsetting or inflammatory - report it. Same for Spam, shilling, flaming and all that stuff.
If you have issues with a post or a thread, please use the Report Post function to let us know. All you have to do is press this button beside each post - - and we will look at it. It might take a while, depending on when you report the post ... but it's the best way to attract attention.
Keeping on Topic
This forum is for the discussion of any topic from a male point of view.
Topics for discussion can be pretty broad, but please try and keep individual threads on the the topic at hand. Don't hijack or derail discussions onto some other topic. This kind of thing is pretty rude. If you want to discuss something new, well then start a new thread
Anonymous posting is allowed, though not required. (to post anonymously you must first log out).
Anonymous posting may be preferred and welcome for the more sensitive topics.
The important point to note though, is that when you post anonymously, the post will not appear immediately. It has to be approved by moderators before it will appear in the forum. This may take some hours depending on when you post. Please be patient.
This is not a medical forum.
There is no-where on boards.ie that you can seek or get specific medical advice.
However if your aim is is to help create a place where people can shine a light on Men's Health in general, and facilitate full, frank & open discussion, then by all means post away. General information and first hand experiences may be shared, but absolutely no medical advice can be sought or given.
This is not an ad site. If you find a great deal on something somewhere by all means let the members know, we also have a Bargain Alerts forum for such things. That's the height of it though. Shilling and spamming will not be tolerated.
