Freecycle : For giving away and getting free things in the Edinburgh area
The serious bit:
Please, no abusive or off-topic posting.
By abusive posting, we mean personal attacks, trolling, homophobic, racist, sexist remarks and so on. Anyone being abusive will be warned, kicked or banned depending on frequency and severity of offences.
Off-topic posting is discussion unrelated to Edinburgh (or at least things that might affect us). if you want to find people that live in the area who are interested in something, that's fine. If you want to discuss non-Edinburgh issues in a wider forum of local people, edindiscuss has been set up specifically for this.
Please use lj-cut if your post is too long or includes images.
Posts to one person are strongly discouraged. Please be aware that a fair few people have this community on their friends-list and won't want to read your personal messages.
Please don't delete comments on your posts. If people leave anything you find offensive, let the moderators know and we'll handle it. This applies especially to posts advertising things; if you can't handle discussion of what you're advertising, don't post it here.
It is reasonable to delete your own comments for the purposes of formatting and spelling. If you change your mind about a comment for any other reason, and it has not yet been responded to, then please freeze the comment and re-post explaining your change of heart. If it has already been responded to, then it must stand.
Any clarification of these guidelines can be provided by the moderators on request.
A ‘mod userpic’ will always be used to demonstrate that we are posting or commenting in that capacity. The rest of the time, we’re acting as normal community members. We won’t normally moderate any discussion that we were already involved in.
If you are unhappy with the decision of a moderator, please refer to a second moderator immediately rather than arguing the toss. We are only human, so do occasionally make mistakes.
The current moderators are guyinahat (edinburgersmod at guyinahatdotcom), silverclear (silverclear @ livejournal.com) and wibbble (wibbble @ livejournal.com).
We will try to deal with your issues at the first opportunity, but please bear in mind that employment sometimes precludes a fast response.
