  • Registration and Posting - Please Read

    Welcome to the forum. We're glad to have you here and look forward to getting to know you. This is a family-oriented club and forum, where members and guests treat each other respectfully and with courtesy, and we ask the following of all forum participants:

    1) When registering, all fields must be completed with REAL information. You MUST register with your REAL name, not a username or nickname, if you don't your registration will NOT be processed. By real name we mean a first and last name. You don't have to make this your user name, but you MUST register with it. This, along with your contact info is how we determine whether you are a real person or a spammer. All registrations are reviewed by our moderators / administrators and if any information is incomplete or appears invalid the registration will not be processed. If we make a mistake and delete your registration because your address really is 123 North Pole, please don't be offended. Just drop us an email and we'll take care of it. We understand that you may not want your information displayed to all on the site, you can set your preferences in your user control panel to control how much of the information is visible to other users. Information in your profile cannot be seen by search engines and is only available to registered users who are logged in to the web site.

    2) Usernames are fun, but real names are required at least in your user control panel profile, preferably in a signature in your posts. Your full name isn't necessary, a first initial and last name, or a first name and last initial is fine. As we said previously, this is a family oriented site and people tend to be more polite and tactful when other people know who they are. To be blunt, if you feel the need to be completely anonymous, we would prefer that you post somewhere else. We will never sell, give, trade or otherwise share your information with anyone else. Period.

    Please note the following “official” forum guidelines:

    1) In order to maintain a welcoming atmosphere, no personal attacks, insults or flames will be tolerated. We welcome lively debate but please don't use it as an excuse to resort to attacks or insults.

    2) Our community is family-friendly. There are users of all ages participating in this forum and language should be kept within a PG-13 level. Vulgar language is not allowed. This constitutes the use of any kind of offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate material deemed unsuitable for younger members.

    3) Please do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling."

    4) No political comments

    5) Please, no outright advertising of your business in the posts without prior approval from the administration team. If you'd like to advertise, low cost ads are available. A website or business mentioned as part of a discussion is acceptable, just no direct solicitations please.

    If any of the above guidelines are crossed, the offending post may be edited by the moderating team and the user will be reminded of the forum guidelines. If the offending post is edited, the moderator will clearly state the reason why.

    The Administration and Moderating team reserves the right to deny forum access to anyone who repeatedly disregards the forum guidelines.

    Lastly, please understand your moderating team has no desire to edit or delete any topics or posts. They will only do so only if absolutely necessary and the reasons will be clearly stated.

    Thanks to everyone in advance for your support. Lets all work together to make this a fun and friendly atmosphere for all of our members and guests.
