Is there going to be a post explaining precisely what has been changed regarding the rules and why (transparent reasons)?

There might be one if and when I feel like getting around to it at some point.

Otherwise, nah.

I see. Well until and if reasons are given as to why, I'll at least provide a link to the old forum rules (as of April 2014) so posters can at least see what has been changed.

You're welcome

I wasn't about to thank you - rules 5 and 12 cover all eventualities quite effectively in any case.

Which rule 5 and 12? From the original set I linked to, or the edited version cooked up today? They're not the same, and it appears you're referring to the old rules' numbering. If so, and you believe that those two rules :cover all eventualities", then it is worth pointing out that the old rule 5 states:

Quote:
If such a change or amendment occurs, it will be posted on the board as (Amended).

Rule 12 is unchanged; rule 5 is only slightly changed. Obviously the latest, most recent version is to be considered definitive.

Oh, well in that case rule 5 is:

Quote:
5) Stay safe online. Giving out personal information which may be used to identify you is strongly discouraged. If you do however choose to go ahead and share personal information with other users, be aware that you do so entirely at your own risk and the board administrator will accept no liability for any consequence, however incurred. (Donít say you werenít warned, in other words).


and rule 12 is:

Quote:
12) If you see a user in breach of any of these rules, please inform the administrator.



Hmm... not exactly "covering all eventualities" are they?

My mistake - as a new rule had been inserted, everything after #3 in the new version has been shifted up one - therefore I meant rules 5 and 13 (in the latest version).

So

and:

Quote:
The decision of the administrator on any complaint, query, post removal or any other issue will be final. So there.


Doesn't really cover the stuff about changing rules without announcing it, though.

The added rule, then, is the ambiguous:

Quote:
3) Posts/posters which/who are deemed to be consistently disruptive of the smooth and orderly functioning of the forum may be warned and/or suspended and/or banned.
