NGF Code of Conduct - Last Updated 20/10/14

The N Gauge Forum hopes to: Promote N Gauge modelling in all of its forms.  To discover, progress and develop skills in all areas of the hobby.

As requirements of your continuing membership, you will be required to:-

a)  Behave with decorum.  Please act towards others as you would wish to be treated.
b)  Post as regularly as possible; sharing member's projects and encouraging and helping other members, by answering queries and/or offering advice.  We are here to support each other and not be competitive!
c)  Respect the copyright of all material submitted.
d)  Do not patronise members, or form cliques.  This could be seen as bullying, and sadly happens a lot on forums.
e)  Refrain from using foul, abusive, racist or insulting language. Remember that youngsters read this forum.
f)  Do not deliberately make contentious or argumentative posts. The forum is not Speakers Corner and the forum rules apply to maintain a convivial atmosphere. Flagrant breach will result in suspension from the forum and possibly a ban.
g)  Items for sale are subject to the governing rules of the forum i.e. must be accompanied by a full description (including any faults) and photographs of the item(s) If you have items for sale please bear your fellow members in mind and advertise here before using media such as eBay. Please also keep both parties fully up to date with transactions via PM.  eBay links are to go into the eBay Board, which will appear to members when they have 10 posts or more.
h) Automatic Account Deletion if:-  You're a new member and you do not log in within a 90 day period and have ZERO posts; your account has not been activated after 30 days; you spam the forum; you advertise without seeking permission; you break the rules of the Code of Conduct; you argue with NGF members or staff.
i)  Political or Religious comment are banned.
j)  We do not allow businesses to sell or advertise their goods on the forum without permission from the Admins - unless they are already paying to advertise on the forum.  Members who regularly post their business website in their signature, in posts, or goods in the For Sale section will be dealt with.  Removal of adverts or advertisements in signatures will be instant with no warning.
k)  Members are not allowed to post items 'for sale' or 'wanted' items on the open forum.  These are to be placed on the NGF Classifieds only.  To encourage new members to contribute to the forum, the N'porium will only become visible to forum members who achieve 10 or more posts.
l)  Using the N'porium for profiteering is deemed to be against the ethos of the forum.  By this we mean that some members will sell items cheaply to fellow members so they can enjoy the hobby.  Therefore, if a buyer then sells the item on at a profit it is seen as profiteering and against what we stand for.  Also, someone selling a lot of items should contribute to the forum to support it, rather than take advantage of the free listing feature.
m)  It has come to my attention that a small minority of our members are creating multiple accounts with the aim of circumventing the forum rules. Any member found with more than one account will have their membership suspended pending an investigation. If any member has more than one account and would like to delete these additional accounts then please contact Tank.

Bullying or Grievances
Bullying will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form and if claims of bullying are founded members will be immediately dismissed.  If you feel you have a grievance or are a victim of bullying, please do not air it publicly in the first instance but PM one of the Moderators or click on the Report Post button and you can be assured it will be looked at. Do not be drawn into a slanging match in open forum.  If you have a problem with a Moderator then please contact Tank via PM.  I will not be biased towards a moderator, and everyone is treated equally.

The Moderation team is here to help you get the best from the forum but we do need your feedback, and if you experience any of the issues mentioned in the Code of Conduct, let us know by either by PM or Report Post.  It is your forum, help us to continually improve it by keeping in touch with the Mod Team.

It may from time to time be necessary to withdraw membership from an individual.  In most cases you may be given warning, but in extreme cases you will be banned.  A member (or members) will be removed after discussion between the NGF Staff and is subject to majority vote.

CHECK YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!  False email addresses are not permitted and may result in your account being closed.  You will be sent a Private Message if your email address bounces, and if it's not changed you will not be allowed back.

This will be updated from time to time, so if you feel you're a trouble maker, then come back soon!  ;D


Thank you for reading our Code of Conduct. If you have any specific comments regarding the Code please use the 'Report to Moderator' link in the bottom right corner of this post to address your concerns to the Team.

Also please feel free to start your own thread to say "Hello" in our Welcome and Introduction section, we like to know a bit about you and your modelling, and you're assured of a warm welcome ;)

Hi Historyboy, and welcome to the forum :wave:
How about a post in the 'Intro' section telling us a bit more about your plans (and hopes) in N?

@Historyboy  When you are ready to post your plans, (dreams), there is a section just for this. Look at the orange section headings and you will find it. As regards a particular want, once you have made 10 posts, you can put an 'advert' in the 'For Sale/Wanted' section.  :beers:

You will get plenty of help and advice here @greydog . Have you any plans yet, or have you a layout up and running?

Hi Danny boy this is a pic of my layout as of now it's in its 3rd incarnation due to house being rearranged by swmbo 😉 so it's been a long time in the making so hopefully with the advice from members I will be able to get it running smoothly 👍

Looks interesting. How about putting a piece under the 'Layout Construction' thread. I will warn you now - there are some nosy people on 'ere.  ;)

I really like Metcalfe models and like to alter them a bit, like different roofs and adding bits. I have also got into scratch building using card and/or Plasticard - very therapeutic!  :thumbsup:

Addit: A few layouts on the forum have viaducts - one that springs to mind is Irwell Valley Railway by @lil chris - look at his last couple of pages, (with apologies to the other members with viaducts  ;)).
