It all depends on what information you put up on the internet.

Sites like facebook are only dangerous after users post information on them, such as employment info or contact details. If you want your private details protected, don't post them on the internet.

At the moment the only bit of information that you have posted on this site includes the information in your profile and your posts.
If you don't want any of this information being available on the internet, then remove any details from your profile and don't post anything that you don't want on the internet.

Otherwise by simply joining this site your identity is not at risk.

Hello everyone

The mod team has decided to implement a couple of changes to reduce to risk of another "Tuqiri Thread" drama happening again.

From now on, new members automatically have their posts queued for mod approval. Once you pass a certain number of posts, your posts will not need to be approved.

This won't affect everyone, only those users below the threshold.
The system is entirely automatic and you probably wont notice a thing.

Thanks

Hi everyone.

We've decided to open up the avatar and signature settings a little more.
As of today avatars can be up to 110px by 160px and a maximum file size of 512kb (for those that love animated gifs)
Signatures can now be up to 600px by 200px and a maximum file size of 512kb

If anyone doesn't wish to see avatars or signatures when they view the forum, they can be disabled by going into your UserCP and clicking the appropriate buttons.

This is just a reminder of the "Friend and Foe" feature. If there is a specific user whom you tend to dislike or you wish not to see their posts, this feature can be very helpful in dealing with it.
Foes are users which will be ignored. Posts by these users will not be fully visible. Personal messages from foes are not permitted. Essentially, for you, users who you select as "foes" will effectively vanish from the forum for you.

To access this feature, click on the "User Control Panel", then select the "Friends and Foes" tab, then select the "Manage Foes" sub-menu, then add any users that you wish.

Kul if someone else quotes your foe in their reply, will the foes post then be visable?

Hello everyone

This is a quick message to ask everyone refresh themselves with the forum rules.
Can I draw special attention rules in regards to threatening comments, posts or PM's - threatening someone, especially with violence, is not tolerated on this forum. I have no hesitation with banning anyone who threatens anyone else on this forum.
Fortunately for almost all of you this isn't even an issue, but understand that anyone who threatens anyone else clearly demonstrates that they lack the maturity and dignity to partake in this community.
If a user threatens someone, I will ban that user regardless of who they are. Threatening users are not welcome here.

Loving this feature. So much negativity I don't have to read from those that are solely negative.
Well, unless someone quotes them.

Just a quick update to the rules.
Over the last few weeks several users have been posting links in the forum to various websites that illegally stream NRL games.

WestsTigersForum.com does not support the activities of these websites.

From today onwards, posting links to these sites in threads or forums in the PUBLIC domain will not be tolerated and any such posts will be removed.

This rules brings WestsTigersForum.com into line with most other rugby league forums on the internet.
