A couple of questions,
1. If you happen to post something or say something that needs to be removed how is this done?

Case example
I post something and it has spelling mistakes in it and I dont realise at the time but later after reading a reply from a LJ I see the error but I find its no longer editable.

2. If you post a pictre of your new purchase do you have to black out the Trademarks etc as per guidline 10?

In the forum, I believe there may be a time limit to how long you have to edit a post. Once a post is past that time limit, it cannot be removed. If something is a big deal, just sent me a note and I will be happy to edit for you.

As far as posting a picture that you took, there is no reason to block out trademarks, etc.

Let me know if that answered your question or if you need further clarification.

I may need to add one change to the rules, which is that members may not block administrators. Doing so will result in the member being banned.

The best thing is hit the PREVIEW button to look over everything again or even copy and paste it in a word doc you my have on your computer. Then copy that and paste it here.
