Some forum etiquette, since such seems to be lacking around here lately. These are nothing different than what you agreed to when you signed up.
--> Post something that contributes to the topic at hand. If not, don't post. It's that simple.
--> Treat every person with respect, the same as if you were sitting in the same room with them.
--> This is a forum to share information. Sharing means that we have people who are wanting your knowledge and experience, and at times, your opinions. Share it in a manner that is respectful and helpful.
--> When a thread is started, stay on the topic of that thread. Do not hijack threads with issues unrelated to the original post.
If you are a continual critic and seldom provide anything positive to the members of the forum, expect your account to be terminated; sooner rather than later. If your tone is continually negative and confrontational, odds are you won't be here long.
We invest a lot of money in this forum. We spend a ton of time monitoring this forum. It is a powerful platform and when used properly, is a great resource for all. We will no longer tolerate people/behavior that detracts from the purpose and benefits of this forum.
There are so many great folks who are willing to help fellow hunters and who are doing great work for hunting and conservation. Some of the most hardcore hunters in the country hang out here, with many more lurking here. By far, the members of this forum are the most informed on issues affecting hunting, when compared to other forums. The level of positive activism of our members is beyond compare. Those people are what makes this forum a great place. We will moderate/monitor this forum in a manner that builds on those attributes, removing anything that detracts from such.
