My suggestion for new Club Triumph Blogging Rules

I think they need some solid RULES to gain a degree of parity in the decisions made, rules that take away the power of the Moderators and Officals to remove any personal bias that maybe harboured.

The current rule change leaves it all open to opinion of those making the judgements which is what caused this BLOG to leave the Club.

I do not see the new rules as any use at all, they are open to opinion.

Time to get tough if you want equality.


Rules for bloggers by agreeing to have your BLOG instated on this website you are hereby in full agreement with the following terms and conditions.

We have a duty of care to all users and members of the club to try to give a true and fair view to ensure club integrity to both club members and businesses associated with the Triumph marque.

1, You may not use your BLOG or Signature/User profile to advertise services, products, websites (future or present or in development) for any commercial or profit making purpose.

This includes any item that can be traced back to a supplier that is currently trading, has traded is defunct or any individuals alive or deceased.

3, You must NOT make personal comments, or comments made to / or about any individual or trader past or present without their written consent and authorisation.


Bit "tongue in cheek" but you get the idea? :)

Gives power to RULES, NOT PEOPLE.

Rules are Rules, most people are weathercocks, not signposts.
