RULES AND GUIDELINES
#1
VAHuntingForum.com RULES & GUIDELINES
We take pride in keeping our message boards respectful, pleasant, and enjoyable for members of all ages. Please read the following guidelines before posting.

As a member of http://www.vahuntingforum.com, you must comply with the below Rules and Guidelines. Failure to do so will be handled on a case to case basis and could possibly result in a permanent ban from the forum.

Commercial Advertising
Commercial Advertising and Sales are not allowed on the forum unless you have been approved by ADMIN. Any threads created without prior approval will be deleted. For more information on becoming a Forum Sponsor or Advertising, please send a email to vahuntingforum@gmail.com

Discussion of other forums in a negative manner will not be tolerated and shall be moderated on a case-by-case basis. Virginia Hunting Forum is not in competition with any other forum; we are a group of people that love experiencing the outdoors in Virginia and wish to discuss topics in an open environment without creating unwanted drama and rivalries with other forums.

Language and Trolling
Our forum is family-friendly. There are young users 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 unsafe for younger members. Inappropriate language will potentially be removed and users will be warned.

Do not post provocative, outrageous, or pointless messages only to get a response from others, i.e. "trolling." Repeat violators will be permanently banned.

Lastly, if it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. Users must demonstrate an interest in contributing to the hunting discussions, as this is a hunting site after all. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue politics or other non-hunting issues are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.

Personal Attacks
In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. While discussions may become heated, it is not an excuse to result to attacks or insults. There is a difference between a passionate, respectful discussion and one that delves into personal matters. Think of it as debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.

Cross-Posting/SPAM
If you have something to post and you're not sure which section it belongs in, do not post it in more than one board. If the administrators or moderators think it would fit better in another location, it will be moved there. Duplicate threads only serve to create confusion and will be deleted.

Avatar Rules
All Avatars must be kept at a PG-13 level. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their avatar removed until they acknowledge this guideline.

Signature Rules
Excessive font size are not allowed. All Signatures must be kept at a PG-13 Level. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed until they acknowledge this guideline.

Multiple Accounts Per Individual Are Not Permitted
If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.

Administrators & Moderators Have the Final Word
If you have a problem or a complaint, direct it to the administrators and/or moderators, not to the boards.The appropriate actions will be taken. We reserve the right to ban flagrant offenders when deemed necessary, with or without prior warning.
