ok this might be an absoultely awful idea or it could be a good one, as this is the only way im gonna find out im not really bothered either way.

i have noticed that on forums in general there is alot of ****ging off: some of it because of misunderstandings ie ppl not explainling their posts
some of it deliberate
some of because people fail to understand that ppl can have differing opinions
ect.
what i am proposing is that there should be a sort of constituion that you can sign up to and put in your sig. this would not be any sort of fan club with leaders who rule over the members or one that you necessary have to put much effort into. the point would be if you have a "the plegde" in your sig, u are agreeing to a number of rules to use it.

that you will respect other peoples view
that you will not respond with insults to anyone that either ****gs you off or is determental to your view point
if someone is offensive to you, you will report them rather than respond
that you wont give unsigned negative rep

i realise that there is nothing that i can do to stop people breaking these rules but the idea is that it would promote the right spirt in the forum, i am open to fresh ideas about what other people would like to inculde, and to whether this is a good idea

i realise that this might be a dumb idea to many but at least i am trying to put forward an idea to improve the forum.

The gentlemen's league is for that
from the opening post by sire the league is very much a group of "good blokes", it doesnt set out any sort of agenda for behaviour and i does need to, this could be something new. it also has positions, this wouldnt be a club more a code of conduct that you are agreeing to

Well if it offends you so much, there is an ignore feature in your cp, this blocks out the text of the people you add.

im not trying people to get people to change their behaviour! people who agree with what i have said already would join im not trying to convet people who dont agree which why your comments dont bother me after all there is no point trying to please everyone in life. a "super nicey nicey lets all me (did u mean be) happy friendly people" why are using the pural (people) to refer to me?

I want to make people join a 'pledge' to behave nicely etc etc, the people who will join, already will act in this way. Thus, it is useless. Go home.
