About Us

Black and White Army wholly owned by P&B Sports Ltd and is run by a small team of dedicated volunteers with the aim of giving St.Mirren supporters the world over an area for good natured discussion on the internet.

Moderation - Updated 22nd April 2008

We moderate the forum on a common sense basis and would ask that each of our visitors obeys simple general good manners when posting on the forum.

We will not tolerate unacceptable personal abuse of the players, management, board of directors or fellow supporters. Remember that everyone visiting the forum more than likely has a similar interest in the well being of St.Mirren Football Club.

It is not in our interests to see the club presented in a poor light and thus the moderaitng team WILL issue warnings to posters who we feel are engaging in abuse that is deemed to be personal or OTT.

Anyone who sees such abuse should report this to a mod using the "Report to Moderator" button.

Similarly we will not tolerate bullying, racist or sectarian abuse - these will also be offences which can result in bannings or warnings.

Warnings will be issued on a 5 strikes and out basis, although the moderators reserve the right to indefinitely ban or suspend a membership of the forum if we think it is in the best interests of the site.

Please respect the forum categories. Non Saints related discussion should be kept to the appropriate section of the forum.

The point of the forum is not to continually ban members, but there is little point in having a board where open discussion is surrounded by constant drivel so posters who continually attempt to spoil discussion threds will also be warned and eventually removed from the board if this persists.

The nightshift section of the board can be used for the sort of post building threads that seem to be popular with a minority. Keep it in there and we will leave them be. Post them elsehwere and they will be removed and yes, you will be warned.

You should also respect the moderating team who look after the site for no reward whatsoever. Like referees, without them there would be no forum.

Thanks
