    Merry Christmas from Santa and the Elves (well the team)

    Hey guys,

    Firstly, Merry Christmas

    I hope I bring you all what you were hoping tomorrow...........if I don't, well never mind

    As those that know me will confirm, I hate being serious this time of year. Tomorrow is about the only day I have off.

    Unfortunately I cannot ignore some of the goings on over the last few days.

    I really want this forum to be a place where people want to come, share and questions ideas and stuff and generally have a blast. I don't want this place to be somewhere people merely visit to ask how to change oil and the such, I want this to be a place where banter can flow about anything. (Providing its legal and within the rules).

    There will be disagreement, I expect it. Some people will mis-read something, thats the nature of written communication.

    What I and the team here really can't tolerate is personal attacks! There really is no need.

    Now, it can be hard to tell if its two friends taking the piss or if someone is personally attacking another. (After all, men show love by taking the piss out of each other). If you feel you are being personally attacked (from now, please don't retrospectively do this) please press the report post button or contact the team using the contact us link at the bottom of the page.

    We will then investigate and if we believe it is a purposeful personal attack (and not a mis-understanding) we will be suspending the account of the offender for 5 days in the initial instance. (Most likely without notice. Increasing to permanent depending on circumstance).

    We will also be looking at changes in the new year, so those that want to merely use this site as a car site can do and those that want to be more sociable can also be able to.

    It is important, when selecting a forum to place your thread you choose the correct one. Banter bar is if you initial thread/post isn't about cars. (Though being mainly a car focused forum, cars may be mentioned during the course of the thread, this is fine). If you thread is going to be related to cars but fairly generic, use car chat.

    Sorry about the negativeness of this thread. Again, we hope you have a great Christmas

    If you wish to wish the team or each other merry christmas please reply below. If you want to send me concerns or death threats about the above (or in general) please PM me.

    Cheers

    Santa

    Happy Christmas one and all. Hoping 2014 brings everyone the mods they want (except my steering wheel going to Graham)

    All I need now is a nice shiny baseball bat to educate the great unwashed to the fact there is no evidence linking C70 T5 cabriolets to hairdressing

    Have a good one guys
