Rule #1 Play Nice.Posts should not exhibit hatred or hostility. Rule # 2 Absolutely no personal attacks (including name calling) or threats. Rule# 3 Bad language isn't allowed. The word filters will tell you what is acceptable. If we have over looked a word that should be filtered it soon will be. To directly misuse words to circumvent the word filters is not allowed. To use symbols as an expression is allowed as long as letters are not used in conjunction as to make it obvious as to what filtered word is being expressed. Posts that abuse these guidelines will be edited, moved or removed. Rule # 4 Alcoholic beverages should not be the focal point of discussions or photographs with the exception of the opt in forums. Content that seems to promote the ABUSE of alcohol or drugs may be removed or moved. This is not to say that an adult beverage can not be in a photograph, just that it can not be the reason a photo was taken. Rule # 5. Regarding opt in forums. If anyone requests to be admitted to an opt in forum, they should realize they are taking on a certain responsibility. Most opt in forums have subject matter or content that is not allowed in the general forum. As a voluntary participant in an opt in forum it will be your sole responsibility to keep content in the proper format. " I thought I was in the other forum " is not a valid excuse for misconduct on the open board. This is a no tolerance policy. A waiting period will be required for any new members requesting admission into the opt in forums. Politics will not be allowed on the open forum unless the topic is hunting or gun related which should be posted in the Guns and Ammo or Hunting News Forums. For those that wish to talk Politics, we have an Opt In Political Forum for those discussions. Rule#6. High Maintenence User - Mods and Admins reserve the right to remove. anyone that requires constant time and attention even if they are not breaking the rules.
