    Forum Rules and Guidelines (23 May 2016)

    Welcome to the Frontier forums!

    Our aim here on the Frontier forums is to create a community where our fans can post between one another and communicate with the Frontier team.

    To ensure that our community forums are a safe, friendly, and enjoyable platform, please adhere to the following community guidelines.

    The volunteer moderation team is here to ensure that the forums are a safe and friendly environment. The moderation team will take actions necessary in accordance to the forum rules and guidelines. If you feel that a moderation action was taken against you incorrectly, please see the final post to dispute your issues/claims.

    Please note that the volunteer moderators are permitted to 'get involved' in a debate or discussion on our forums. However, once they get involved to a thread, they've been advised to not actively moderate it due to a possible conflict of interest.
