  6. URL's (web links) are not to be broken up to get around our censor and checking routines.

All advertisers are fully responsible for running their businesses within applicable laws for distance selling. The DIBB will not get involved with disputes of any kind between a user and advertiser.
  22. These rules cover most common situations, however, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
Vlogs and Videos
Anyone wishing to post a video or vlog must do so under our guidelines otherwise we can't allow it on the DIBB.
  1. Soliciting Likes, follows or Subscriptions within the video/vlog or it's description and comments should be avoided. We see this as begging and self promotion. We believe that if people want to like, follow or subscribe they will do so of their own accord and not because the author has begged or encouraged them to do so.
  2. Please do not link to a channel. Videos should be embedded in to the posts on the DIBB rather than being linked to as this creates a better experience for DIBB users. There are instructions HERE

Our decision is final in all these matters.

We reserve the right to remove or edit any posted information that in anyway, in our sole opinion, does not adhere to our rules or general well being of this family friendly site, without warning. You will not be notified if your post is removed, moved or edited. Admin/Mods decisions in this regard are final.
