    There have been a couple of changes to SC's rules

    These include the site rules on offering Tickets for sale, use of memberships etc and the posting of copyright images.

    Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with them, the changes are clearly marked. It is in your own interests to do so as saying 'I didn't know guv' will cut no ice with the mods.

    Link to site rules

    Thanks

    A reminder as it's being ignored and people are posting images with Getty Images labelled on them which takes the piss.

    PHOTOGRAPHS/LINKING TO IMAGES

    Regretfully we can no longer allow any photographs to be posted or linked to on this site unless you took the photo yourself.

    Several other fan sites are facing legal action from the owners of copyrighted images (such as Gettyimages) and we have taken this decision to protect the site from any possibility that this might happen to us. Members who persist in flouting this rule may be banned.

    This rule applies to ALL copyright images, including AP and others. Please also remember that if an image doesn't have a 'watermark' or copyright logo that does not mean it isn't copyright. If a photo looks professionally taken is is highly likely that it is copyright.

    Despite our efforts, we're still seeing people posting copyright images, links to streaming sites, or asking for them.

    Copyright images

    This policy has been in place for long enough for people to know the score by now. Yet we're still seeing people posting copyright images. IF YOU POST A COPYRIGHT IMAGE YOU ARE NOW LIKELY TO RECEIVE A BAN.

    Posting links to streaming sites
    The same goes to for the policy we've had to adopt regarding posting/asking for links to streaming sites. Again, it's been in place long enough now but it's still going on. There's no excuse for it and bans are now being handed out to those who persist.

    Fair warning.
