This website is perpetually in arrears & will not survive without regular donations! Of course, we appreciate not all of you are in the same financial position, but we do have over 18000 members & if just half of you donated we would never have to worry about money again. We value your support, so if you can afford it please stop us worrying by making a donation. There is a thread on running costs here.

UK Hippy Rules

Registration Agreement

Registration to this site is free. However, we insist that you abide by the terms and conditions detailed here. If you do not agree to the following terms then we request that you leave this site now.

While the administrators and moderators of UKHippy will attempt to remove or edit any objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review all content. Therefore you acknowledge that all content submitted to this site express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators or moderators (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.



Being a member of this site means that you are welcome to express yourself and discuss ideas openly with other members within the constraints of our acceptable use policy.

This means that, while we strive to allow free expression and discussion, submitted content should never infringe upon the freedom or enjoyment of other members or visitors. Therefore we will not tolerate any behaviour that is deliberately antagonistic or distressing towards other members, or any behaviour that threatens the survival or status of this site.

Examples: (but not limited to)

  • Anything that disables the site from rendering properly or anything that disrupts the functioning of the server
  • Any content designed to negatively affect members' computers (viruses, scripts, etc.)
  • Any excessively repetitious content (flooding, spamming)
  • Advertising commercial products or services.
  • Deliberately antagonistic behaviour (trolling, flaming, derailing topics)

As a member you agree not to post any abusive, obscene, slanderous, racist, sexist, homophobic or threatening material, or anything that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). IP addresses are recorded to aid us in enforcing these conditions.

Examples (but not limited to)

  • Illegal software or cracks
  • Racist or ethnically abusive propaganda
  • Pornography
  • Content that discriminates on grounds of sexuality or gender

You agree not to submit material that you do not have permission to. You agree that you will respect the privacy of others and not reveal undisclosed personal information.

Examples (but not limited to)

  • Names, addresses or phone numbers
  • Pictures of people who you do not have permission to use
  • Any information about someone that may not be public

You agree that by submitting content (pictures or text) to this website you are granting us free, non-exclusive licence to publish that material. This means that, although you retain the copyright of your work, you are freely and irrevocably allowing us to use that content in any way we deem appropriate. However, we will not use that content on any other website or publication without your express permission.

Registration to this website means that you also agree to our acceptable use and privacy policies.

These membership terms are the subject of ongoing review; it is the responsibility of members to check this agreement regularly for any changes. Being a member means you agree that the administrators and moderators of UKHippy have the right to lock, delete, edit or move any submitted content at any time should they see fit. The management reserves the right to remove any account, without notice, at any time.
