Postby Bushbaby » Fri Jul 15, 2005 10:19 am

1. You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another member, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another member's account to post messages or browse this forum. Users will no longer be allowed to register using a website address as a user name. Users will only be allowed one account with one alias. If a user has been found to have more than one account on this forum, all their accounts will be deactivated indefinitely with immediate effect. If you wish to change it, then contact one of the Administrators and ask them to assist.

After you register and log into this forum, you can fill out a detailed profile. Please supply us with an e-mail address as well as your locality. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Keep your avatar amd signature simple and pleasant for the eye. Inappropriate avatars and signatures will be removed. No rich media in avatars and signatures will be allowed.

2. You agree that you will not use this site to promote, organise or convey any illegal activity whatsoever. Breaking this rule will result in the termination of your account and your access disabled with immediate effect.

3. You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material (links, pictures, animations or text) which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of ANY law. This is not amusing at all and legal action can be taken against you. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also inappropriate on this forum. Do not use symbols in place of foul language. This will not be allowed. This is a family friendly site and we do not want anything posted here that we would not want our children to see.

Note that it is sometimes impossible for us to confirm the validity of posts on this forum. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages and are not responsible for their content. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information presented. The messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of this forum. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator of this forum immediately. We have the rights to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy goes for member profile information as well. Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this forum, and any related websites to this forum. We at this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any information posted by you.

4. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or you have consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. If you are posting material from another source on the web, make sure you add a link to the source. If you are posting material from off the web, make sure you give a reference to the source of the material. Plagiarism is a serious offence and failure to do this is breaking the law.

5. No personal messages posted. If you wish to ask a personal question of ONE person, please do so in an email or private message and not on the Forum.

6. Please do not go "stir trouble" on other websites. It reflects on us as members / moderators / admin of this site. If you compromise the good name of this site, your membership will be suspended.

7. Please no direct advertising, unless it is in the appropriate forum.

8. Last but not least... have fun. Share your experience. No matter how trivial you think something may be, YOU can help other people. You may begin a thread that brings out new information that helps all of us better raise, keep and breed our charges. What you have to say is important so speak up.
