Welcome to the AHPs in Touch forums!

We have put together this document containing rules and guidelines for using the "AHPs in touch" forums. We will assume good faith when dealing with violations; we will warn or ban users who repeatedly or blatantly violate the rules.
Administrators have the final say in modifying, interpreting and enforcing these rules.

NB: If members note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of an Administrator. Please use the "Report" feature to report posts. Do not respond to such topics yourself.
