This is just a polite reminder about acceptable and unacceptable forum use.
Users of the forum are expected to adhere to the supportive ethos of Wikivorce at all times when using the forum boards. Wikivorce reserves the right to edit, lock or remove posts that fall outwith our ethos, or Terms and Conditions.
The primary purpose of the forum is to give help, guidance and support to those who need it regarding divorce and separation and the difficult times before and after, including financial and children’s issues.
A little light-hearted banter is also welcome; we are all human and need some light relief occasionally.
Please remember that this forum is used by both men and women and by their relatives, new partners and those who wish to help them. Use of inappropriate language or behaviour that may be considered racist, sexist, prejudiced, pornographic, threatening, aggressive, antagonistic, etc., will not be tolerated and anyone using such language or behaviour will see action taken as deemed appropriate by the moderating team or Community Manager, including the possible closing of their account.
Images may be uploaded to forum posts, providing they are not of a child under the age of 18 or inappropriate (i.e. indecent, depicting violence, prejudice, or other scenarios which are not conducive to the ethos of Wikivorce). Such images will be removed and the member responsible may face action as deemed appropriate by the moderating team or Community Manager.
Please bear in mind also that when the forum clogs up with gossip and trivia other posts get pushed down the list, important questions get lost and members don’t get the answers and advice that they need. Try to keep your posting relevant.
When answering other people’s posts, think carefully before you hit ‘submit’. Are you certain that your answer is accurate and up-to-date? Do you think your post is what the original poster needs to hear in order to progress their case?
Respect the fact that you are posting on someone else’s thread. The thread is about them and not about you – a long spiel about your own experience is not relevant, unless you are making an important point which the poster can use. If you have issues of your own which you want the forum to help you with, start your own thread, do not hijack others’. If you just want a rant, write a blog on the Members’ Blogs area.
Please keep to the law when posting about children’s proceedings, especially Section 12 of the Administration of Justice Act 1960 and Section 97 of the Children Act 1989. Do not post your name, address, telephone numbers or any material, including photographs, likely to identify a child subject to proceedings.
It is well-known that lawyers and CAFCASS will trawl through social media looking for evidence of hidden assets to use in divorce proceedings or details of your intended strategy in children’s cases. Stay anonymous!
The aim of Teamwiki is to moderate with a light touch, but inappropriate posts will be edited or removed. This is time-consuming and takes Teamwiki members away from the job of answering questions and giving support. If members offend persistently their accounts will be closed.
Anyone found ‘spamming’ on the forum or attempting to sell services will face immediate exclusion.
