WHR Website Rules

'Website Hosting Review' (WHR) requires that anybody submitting content to this website, whether it be via our 'Discussion Forum' or 'Reader Reviews' system, observe both current UK laws and best practice on the website; to this end we have designed a simple set to rules. You agree, through your use of these services, that you will not use this system to post any form of media which is knowingly defamatory, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or that would otherwise violate any law.

This system does not and cannot review the media posted and is not responsible for the media, we reserve the right to delete any media for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your media, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless WHR, and their agents with respect to any claim based upon your media. We reserve the right to reveal whatever information we know about you in the event of legal action arising from any media posted by you. You must agree to this and the general rules below if you wish to use the system:

General Discussion Forum Rules
  1. Post topics and information in the most appropriate forum category and do not duplicate the same topic into additional forums.

  2. Please do not post abuse towards other forum members and take special care to avoid making any kind of personal attack upon others; such posts should be reported to the sites editor.

  3. Trolling is not allowed (someone who intentionally posts controversial or contrary messages with the intention of baiting users into an argumentative response).

  4. Respect the websites moderators and admins, if you feel any have acted out of tone then please 'Contact' the websites owner privately to discuss your concerns.

  5. Try to make constructive posts and topics.

  6. Those Representing a Website Hosting Provider (WHP) or related company and registering on the site must immediately identify themselves to this websites owner before posting ('Contact'). This allows us to identify said individual legitimately to the community with a simple status upgrade.

  7. Host Representatives should avoid posting in forums that specifically belong to other hosting providers unless it's of a courteous or helpful nature. These forums are not to be used as a commercial battleground.

  8. The forum does not allow third party advertising from its members, we do not tolerate SPAM (junk/marketing messages). Note that signature links to private (personal) or not-for-profit (uncompetitive with WHR) websites are allowed. Host Representativesí are also allowed links to their own services, albeit not excessively.

  9. It is recommended that people avoid making usernames that use special characters and spaces; these can cause problems with other systems and may be deleted.

  10. Please avoid posting large images as part of your signature or on the forum in general, they may slow loading for others and distort the site. Likewise signature images should also have small file sizes.

  11. Concerns that regard missing (deleted/vanished) topics should only be raised in private with the websites editor. Usually such things occur as part of routine maintenance, server problems or because somebody has posted material that breaches our rules.

  12. Members must only register one username (account) per person, having multiple identities can lead to abuse of the website and is not allowed.

General Reader Review Rules
  1. Try to post reviews that offer some constructive background to your experiences, reviews that contain little or no written opinions (i.e. ratings by themselves) may be erased.

  2. We may remove any review that we deem unacceptable, such as those that contain abuse or following a justified complaint.

  3. Please make no more than one review per hosting provider, any member found to be making several reviews for a single provider via multiple registered usernames is likely to be removed and their reviews erased.

  4. Making lots of reviews within a short space of time may look suspicious, please try to review only those providers that you have used most recently.

  5. Host Representativesí may NOT review other providers, including their own, as this is considered abuse of the system.

  6. Try to keep your review updated to reflect any changing experiences; this may also help to prevent the review from being erased.

  7. Older reviews may be removed as part of occasional maintenance cycles; although this is dependant upon website activity (lots of old and un-updated reviews for a particular provider are more likely to be cleaned up).
