    The “Japanties” thread has been removed. Anyone wondering why should re-read this thread. Particularly the bit which says “ threads which serve no useful purpose on a guitar forum ... will be deleted”

    A selection of comments has been removed from the Domestic Vaccine Passports thread.

    If you think a comment is out of order then please Flag it. Don’t wade in to admonish the author because it can lead to thread derailment. If the author happens to be a troll then please don’t reward it with your attention.

    Price comments removed from this sale thread. A seller might be a chancer, or even completely deluded, but we don’t like you saying so.

    You know how it is when you can’t find that vital brick to complete a Lego build? To make it easier the three Fender Lego threads have been merged.

    I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve banned Gaz Richards for abusing our Classifieds. He has come back yet again as @Ifeellucky to sell a guitar which is also available through his online business. For the moment I’ve deleted the thread and removed his Classified access.

    It’s time for autumn pruning. The Facebook Outage thread has benefited from my new secateurs. The clippings were deposited here. Their owners have been notified.

    Andy_K has been let out of the Trolls area on the promise that he won't post any more controversial conspiracy theories...
    One of the disappointments of moderating the forum is when, despite encouragement, cajoling, threats, and eventually a spell in the cooler, some members are still unable to control their posting behaviour.

    This year we have been trialling a new approach: the removal of access to Off Topic areas. @andy_k has the distinction of being the first publicly announced recipient of this feature.

    For anyone following the “Can’t play C without touching the other strings” thread. The author and his threads have gone.

    Both posts was copied from Ultimate Guitar. We see this behaviour from time to time as copying a popular thread from another forum is an easy way to generate comments and earn frets here.
    For the benefit of @Funkfingers, and anyone else wondering what happened to the “Pgrade pickups or not” thread. We’ve had a new joiner who copied the text from a popular thread in another forum’s archive. Spammer and thread have left the building. If you spot any more of these please let me know.

    This morning I spent time cleaning up the WET LEG thread because it was a useful discussion about music. However some people can’t resist derailing the thread so this time it’s closed.

    This evening I spent time cleaning up the Eastman thread. If I have to do much more of this then contributors to future derailments are going to find themselves out in the cold.

    MatthewShreddery is banned.

    A while ago he had his access to Off Topic restricted due to a number of incidents of rules breaking. It appears he didn't like the outcome of this, and decided that a second account was a reasonable course of action to get over the restriction. 

    The rules are, of course, absolutely clear - there are no circumstances where a second account is allowed or justified, and anyone attempting to use more than one account will be banned. 

    Oddly, he said that he didn't realise that having multiple accounts was against the rules...

    Peanuts is in the dog house for sealioning and for attempting to rules lawyer the moderators. To give the moderation team a break from “but you haven’t explained exactly what I’ve done wrong” messages we are giving him a spell in the Cooler. 

    This action clearly proves that the moderators are part of the global conspiracy against peanuts. If any conspiracy theorists would like to keep him company in the Cooler then please make yourselves known to a member of staff. You can do this by waving at your screen and the software which we’ve infected your device with will automatically add you to the list.

    Covid Mask thread closed. 

    As a result of that thread, a selection of warnings were issued in line with the new process as described for rule 2. 

    Another reminder to everyone - read the link in the comment above that Lee posted and familiarise yourself with it. We are quite serious about this, and we will put a stop to the nastiness that's become more prevalent recently.
