We see that recently there have been quite a few examples where members have posted a message, realised they have omitted something or made a mistake so have posted a second, almost identical message with the additions/corrections included.
On Gaybod (unlike many other websites) members can actually edit and/or delete their messages.
Details of how this can be done are given in the tips below.
See "If you make a mistake"
Help with posting messages
Some recent messages included information concerning vehicles and locations which could possibly have identified individuals and have resulted in them becoming the object of abuse so please do not include personal details, vehicles details or even telephone/mobile numbers in messages however innocent it may seem as these details could cause serious problems for those concerned.
Messages which include abusive and/or personal attacks on others or include derogatory remarks about others will be refused/edited/removed as appropriate. Removed items are retained out of public view and if writers are persistent with their abuse details will be forwarded to their Internet Service Provider for appropriate action which could include internet barring.
If unsure where to post
It you want to contact or meet others or you have information about a CRUISING SPOT - directions, warnings, best times etc. then post your message in the Meet Men & Cruising Information Section Guest postings will queue and wait until approved so will take longer to be displayed.
Use of BLOCK CAPITALS.
Please post your messages in standard lower case. BLOCK CAPITALS can cause problems with the format of your message and others in the thread and make them difficult or impossible to read.
If you want to use the odd word in CAPITALS to emphasise a point that is OK.
There are other ways of making your message different - See the section 'Using this Site'/Questions & Answers/How to make my message look different, for ideas.
If you make a mistake
Members who post a message and then find they have made a mistake or want to change something can do so. Just click on the EDIT icon in the top righthand corner of the message and an edit box will appear below the message with the message in it. Make the changes your require in the edit box, click 'Refresh Preview' to see if all is now OK, and if it is click on SAVE MESSAGE. Guests cannot do this.
To DELETE a message click on the DELETE ICON (X) in the top right of the message and follow the prompts.
Some members like to repeat their messages from time to time so that they appear within the last day or last week. Please delete the older messages by clicking on the delete icon in the top right hand corner of the old message and following the prompts.
Guests cannot delete their messages.
From time to time messages invite contact when it is not possible so, to clarify:
Private messages can only be exchanged between registered members.
Guests cannot send or receive private messages.
Guests who wish to be contacted can either put their email address in the box beneath their Username when posting a message (there Username will then be underlined and clicking on it creates an email link) or put their email address in their message.
Guests can only contact members who either include their email address in their profile or in their message.
Members can only contact guests who have their Username underlined to give an email link, or who have included their email in their message.
