- Articles, photographs and Forum submissions where there is reference to the local area including the people, clubs, businesses and organisations based in the local area. See the street map for the area we cover. Articles, photographs and Forum submissions must be your own work.
- We want to encourage use of our good local businesses, organisations and clubs. We want to know of their existence, where they are and what they have to offer. Requests for local information is also accepted.
- The forum is not a review site. Any recommendations on the forum will be taken as information of the likely service provided only. We do not accept negative and derogatory comments due to the anonymous nature of the source offering no redress for those affected unless it includes proper citation (i.e. a link to a reputable website). We make no warranty as to the accuracy of any information on the forum and cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions. You are strongly encouraged to verify the information directly with the local business, organisation or club, obtain independent references from past customers and other reputable sources.
- Please keep messages relevant to Dennistoun.
- Please keep replies relevant to the original message. Readers will be unhappy if you highjack the thread for your own purposes and if you deviate then it may not get published. Open another thread with a new message to discuss your point further.

We do not accept:
- Phone numbers, addresses or email addresses.
- Links to websites with no reference to the local area (spamming).

A genuine submission to the forum can contain a relevant link by removing the "http://" part of the URL.
