We've had a number of new members register and start posting of late (a warm welcome to you!), along with some long term readers and long term members who've never really posted in the past.

In light of this, we though it worthwhile to mention a few things...

About S24SU
We're an un-official fan site and forum, owned and run by Foxy and Linz and that site has been around over a decade in various guises.

We are our own entity and have no official links with Sheffield United FC, Sheffield United PLC or any online football network. We believe this allows us to bring you the views of the fans on the stands with no ulterior motive or agenda.

We are of course in regular dialogue with the club and regularly pass on questions, concerns and feedback.

The site is funded by us and whilst we don't expect people to pay to use the site, donations towards running costs are welcomed via the following link: http://www.s24su.com/forum/index.php?pages/Donations/

About the forum

As you may know, neither of us are around all of the time and we have worked hard to put the ethos in place which pretty much lets the forum run itself.

However, when there are issues, please do use the "report" button to draw anything to our attention - be it a user being naughty or something more mundane like a thread needing merging etc. You might not get an acknowledgement of the action we've taken, but we do look at all of the reported items.

Other reminders:

* Txt spk – You have an entire keyboard, unlimited characters, various spell-checkers and the whole English language to use. Some of our members are older. Others don’t speak English as a first language. In order to be accommodating to all, we ask that you try and type properly.

* Please make your thread titles as descriptive as possible - this helps us avoid duplication and makes it easier to spot where threads should be merged. When creating a new thread, you'll also be presented with a small list of similarly named thread to aid you in cutting down on repetition.

* Please keep all discussion about other football, including our neighbours across the city, in the Other Football and Sport section. General Blades Chat gets busy enough without threads about "them" too.

* And on the above point, please post your threads in the most relevant forums. They’ll only get moved there eventually.

* Please do not put potentially not safe for work pictures in forum threads without hiding them behind spoiler tags and putting a NSFW warning on. I don't know what liberal professions some of you work in but widescreen sized pictures of ladies with their tits out is not what my gaffers want to see when I'm having a quick check of the forum at dinnertime.

* Infractions: Personal Abuse - Three infractions earn members a one week ban. Any further infraction then earns a permanent ban.

We expect our members to remain respectful in the event of disagreements. Personal abuse will not be tolerated and neither will escalating arguments. This forum was set-up to allow all Blades fans to have their say and allow members to debate subjects intelligently. Each instance of personal abuse will earn one infraction (and no amount of PMs attempting to state your case that "calling someone a twat doesn't count" will change that.)

* Swearing - Bear in mind that a wide range of people can read your posts. Swearing is tolerated on the forum and there is no profanity filter, but bear in mind that your posts are public and can be read by anyone. We'd ask you to self police in this respect, ensuring that where used, language is suitable to the situation/point being made.

Don't want to be a nag, but also don't want to be on here babysitting you all.

As always, if you have any questions, feedback or suggestions, you know where we are!

Regards & Up The Blades,

Foxy & Linz

Just a quick point on this

Please do not put potentially not safe for work pictures in forum threads without hiding them behind spoiler tags and putting a NSFW warning on. I don't know what liberal professions some of you work in but widescreen sized pictures of ladies with their tits out is not what my gaffers want to see when I'm having a quick check of the forum at dinnertime.

It is worth mentioning that even NSFW images in spoiler tags will be downloaded to your PCs cache, and consequently via your works network.

Thus whilst you may not end up accidentally sharing an image of a pair of oversized mammeries over your web presentation, if your work decide to have a dig around, they will be able to see the image in your history.
