Forum Rules

Do...
  • Choose the right forum for your category of problem.
  • Help to create an accepting and understanding atmosphere in the forums by being tolerant and patient with other users.
  • Realise that different people live their lives in different ways - what seems right to you might not be right for someone else.
  • Try to value other people's experiences and comments even if you don't agree with them.
  • Use paragraphs with gaps between them for long problems - this makes them much easier to read and more likely to be answered.
  • Use 'proper' English as much as you can.
  • Always remember that children might be reading the forums!

Do not...
  • Reproduce the content of this site without permission.
  • Post sexual problems.
  • Post spam (that means unauthorised promotion of commercial websites, products or services, including links in posts and signatures unless the site is helpful or the link is in context).
  • Use bad language.
  • Abuse or make fun of other users.
  • Argue with your partner or friend on PP; each of you is entitled to privacy and confidentiality, and this cannot be achieved if you both post on the same forum.
  • Post the same problem to more than one forum.
  • Be afraid of sharing your experiences if you think you might be able to help someone.
  • Use the forums to promote your political or religious beliefs.
  • Rise to the bait of flamers or trolls, just ignore them.
  • Impersonate another user.
  • Use lots of text lingo - it makes your posts very hard to read.

If you are new to forums and online communities please read our Introduction to Nettiquette.

Just reminding everyone of this, as there's been quite a lot of swearing on the forum lately. We do prefer you not to swear. Swearing with asterisks or 'missing' letters still counts!
