What are the goals of the forums and of moderation?

Not open for further replies.


The number one goal of CycleChat is to discuss cycling.

The rules and decisions are made to protect this goal over all else, first and foremost in the Bikes and Cycling forums. Following closely are forum discussions about other aspects of cycling and for giving help to fellow users. Further down the list is the Community forum, and at the bottom of the list is the News and Current Affairs forum.

The Forum Rules govern use of the forums. You are also responsible for observing the forum rules and Guidelines. Members should observe both the letter and the spirit of these rules.

You are responsible for only your posts. If another member breaks rules, you may ignore them or report the problem to the moderators, but you may not use it as an excuse to break rules yourself or to try and moderate other members.

Volunteer moderators help us manage the forums and enforce the forum rules. CycleChat is a busy place and regularly gets thousands of posts per day. The moderators cannot read them all so they rely on members to report problem posts that they encounter. The point of moderation is not to limit discussion, promote or suppress points of view, or any other personal or political agenda. The goal of moderation is to keep the forums enjoyable and free from problems that detract from the experiences of our users.
