Welcome to The Concrete Roundabout, the unofficial online home of the MK Dons.

Before you join or before you post, please have a read of these rules and objectives to get a better understanding of what this board is all about.

Well, firstly, the point of this place is to give fans of MK Dons a place to discuss their beloved football team. Beyond that, fans can discuss the wider sporting world, the general universe or whatever takes their fancy. Fans of other clubs are also more than welcome here, provided they stick to the rules and spirit of the forum. This forum has no official role within the club and has no affiliation to any supporters' organization or fanzine. We are independent and proud of it.

The site has several moderators whose role is to ensure that the site runs as smoothly as possible. They will intervene with the forum when they deem appropriate. Please do not take personal offence to any moderation that your posts/threads are subjected to. Any moderations are made to keep the board ticking over.

Rule 101

The moderators reserve the right to ban (and potential delete all or some of the former members posts) anyone who, in the subjective opinion of the moderators acting in good faith, is significantly disrupting the smooth running of this forum.This sanction will be rarely used but is needed for the enjoyment of the other members.

The other forum rules:-

1) This forum is designed for adults so if you are a parent with children under 18 just remember that this site may not be suitable for your children.
2) No personal information about other posters can be revealed. Posters have the right to anonymity on this forum. If you choose to reveal personal information about yourself that is your call, although it is probably wise to not reveal very much. However, revealing personal information about other posters will not be tolerated.
3) You are responsible for all posts made under your log-in. Thus, if a post under your name breaks the forum rules, or upsets someone so much they wish to sue you, then you are solely responsible.
4) Post in the appropriate sections. The board is clearly laid out and it is made perfectly apparent what should go where. Please post in the correct section to help the board operate effectively. People who consistently post in the wrong section will face sanctions.
5) Do not hijack posts and threads. If your point is not relevant to an exisiting post or thread, then make a new topic. Do not hijack the discussions of others. In the same vein, do not constantly repeat the same point in all threads to support whatever agenda you have. It is tedious, and those who do it consistently will face sanctions.
6) No multiple IDs. If you are found to have two or more identities, then all your IDs will be banned. Simples. (NB - this does not apply to moderators, who will have seperate moderator IDs.)
7) For the time being, the forum has no swear filter. However, excessive swearing and/or obscene language is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
8) Debate is encouraged, and passion is welcomed. However, offensive, deliberatly provocative and directly personal posts will not be tolerated. Posting in such a way will result in sanctions being taken.
9) No text talk, bar the odd LOL. It is annoying to read and if you do it often you will become an annoyance.
10) All opinions and views are valid. No point of opinion, no matter how positive or negative, will be discriminated against PROVIDING it is expressed within the rules.
11) Enjoy!
