We operate some "house rules" on the site. Not all of these may be immediately obvious from the TOS, so we've set them out here and will add to them if necessary.

1. We operate a "one case, one thread" rule. This means that you should keep any posts relating to one case (one incident of speeding, one PCN, etc) to a single thread. Do not start multiple topics on the same case.

2. Do not hijack another person's thread in order to post your own problem. Start your own.

3. If you have some relevant knowledge to share with the OP, feel free to give advice. However, and particularly in advice threads in the speeding, council tickets, and private tickets forums, if you're not sure please qualify your advice, e.g. "I think that...". People who repeatedly post opinion as fact or recklessly give incorrect advice will be subject to moderation, including a ban. Poor advice impacts on OPs who rely on it, other posters who have to correct it, and moderators who have to deal with reports about it.

4. Advice threads in the speeding, council tickets, and private tickets forums are exactly that. Do not stray off topic in them. If you do, don't be surprised if your post disappears.

5. If you come here to ask for advice, don't act up if the advice isn't to your liking. Advice is given freely by people who give up their own time to do so. At least acknowledge that. If you'd prefer to be patted on the shoulder, told "there, there" and given a cup of tea click here. Please also ensure that your posts are readable, i.e. please take some care with spelling and breaking paragraphs up and please don't use text speak.

6. Please use the search function and read around topics to try to understand your issue. This is particularly relevant if you're heading to court. While posters will help you they are not here to babysit you and do everything for you. You will need to put in some effort yourself to try to learn a bit about the topic and there are generally no templates as each situation is different.

7. Disagreements. If someone has mortally insulted your honour please resist the urge to call them out in a thread. Report it to the moderators using the "report post" button, approach them via PM and resolve it, or simply ignore it/them. We expect you to have at least an adult level of resilience and common sense, so perceived slights won't be accorded much sympathy.

8. If you feel that a particular OP does not deserve your help, feel free not to assist him. However, if you feel the need to pass judgment on the OP, feel free to do it somewhere else, as it will not be tolerated on these forums.

Feel free to PM Southpaw82 or Fredd with any concerns. We'd much rather deal with an issue up front and quietly than find out inboxes spammed with dozens of reports about the same post.

Fredd

Though it is not a reliable indicator, the higher the post count, the more likely the advice will be sound. This is a result of the "rules"/peer review as anyone who spouts nonsense is likely to be corrected or moderated.

Where there is a claim - there is a counterclaim.
Are Parking companies misusing your personal data or interfering with your lease? Counterclaims are only £25. Makes them sit up and take notice. For leaseholds, join in the Managing agents too. Since the purpose of these claims is to frighten you, give them something to be frightened of.

If it's not reliable it's a bit pointless as an indicator then.

In my experience, the site's position is that it cannot, does not and will not warrant advice given by any given poster as being accurate/reliable.

We have had posters here with a high post count who rarely take the time to read the thread before replying to it (the time required to read the number of thread that they reply to would be immense), and we have well regarded specialist motoring lawyers with very low post counts.

Anything suggesting that a high post count equals reliability is likely to be adopted as a formal 'house rule' on the same day that Lord Lucan delivers my lottery winnings riding Shergar.

If you're going to try to contradict me, please at least try to get your facts straight.
