Just in light of recent activity, I said I'd bump this thread so everyone's aware of it.

Many recent posts here have either been not relevant or off topic, or they've been uncivil, or they've been arguing with a mod on the thread.

These aren't rules we wrote for the chess forum specifically - as you can see from the poster, who's not a chess mod, for example.

The rules should allow for proper discussion and debate, which is what we want on here.

If you don't want proper discussion and debate, there are other Irish chess forums you can post on.
