These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Udon Social. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.
Welcome to Udon Thani's Original Free Speech Forum, we don't like to Moderate, we would rather members Moderated themselves.
These are a set of rules, follow them or don't, up to you, we do appreciate rules get broken by all but don't be offended if you are edited or posts deleted, we would rather not, but Udon Social does have a line, its invisible, but its there, and you know with-in yourself where the line or boundary is placed.
NO flash banner adverts, in fact NO homepage adverts at all, as there is NO homepage, who really wants annoying adverts anyway.
We do have hand picked sponsors, its costs nothing to have your own business topic/thread on here, just ask.
