    This is a forum-wide announcement created by the moderation team. If you have any questions, please report the thread and ask your question that way so the whole team can discuss. Thanks!! :)

    FORUM GUIDELINES


    Be nice! We are trying to create a fun community here, so please don't fight personal battles on the forum and don't flame people because of their opinion.

    Please respect other members. If you disagree with someone please be courteous and handle it like an adult.

    Please use proper grammar to the best of your abilities. A few typos and the occasional 'LOL' are a lot better than all-out chat speak.

    Please refrain from swearing. This is, naturally, a family friendly site.

    REMEMBER: Your postings on this public forum will become public.Your text (and photos) will become public. They will be available to anyone with an Internet connection.

    Please remember that the edit feature is to correct spelling mistakes or to add information for clarity. It is NOT for removing entire posts or photos that destroy the thread altogether.

    Moderators will remove any, and all, posts that link to things like contests and other self-serving off-forum places, including other forums.

    ALL members should remember that: "Reputation should be given on a post by post basis, and should be based on your reading of the message, not your opinion of the messenger. Perhaps more importantly, Reputation should be based on the quality of the post, not on whether you agree with the point of view.

    If you like chocolate and a member posts a defense of vanilla, you should not automatically give a negative Reputation simply because you disagree with the opinion. And you should not automatically give positive reputation to members or messages that you like, agree with, or simply support your position. "
    Abuse of the Reputation System will not only result in a member receiving infractions, but can lead to your membership being banned from the forum.

    THE ABOVE GUIDELINES ARE NOT ALL INCLUSIVE OR EXCLUSIVE. ALL MEMBERS ARE EXPECTED TO USE THEM AS A GUIDE WHEN POSTING ON THE FORUMS.
    Remember that Moderators work together. We do review and discuss before any significant action is taken. Decisions are made as a group.
    We respect and value each other's opinions and stand together on any and all decisions that are made.

    Moderators reserve the right to remove, modify or move posts at our discretion and without explanation.
    Moderators will edit posts if they find any that have refused to obey these rules.
    Moderators will take any additional action that they feel is appropriate, and deem necessary, for members who abuse their posting privileges and repeatedly break the rules and guidelines of this forum
