Forum Terms & Rules
Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below. If you agree with them and wish to proceed with the registration, simply click the "Register" button below. To cancel this registration, simply hit the 'back' button on your browser.
Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Feathered Flyer. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email or click on the REPORT button. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.
Our community 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.
If it is abundantly clear that a user has no intention of positively contributing to Bird discussions, combined with an abrasive, combative attitude, they will be banned. Users must demonstrate an interest in contributing to bird discussions, as this is a bird site after all. In other words, users who wish to do nothing but argue politics or other non-bird issues are not welcome as they do nothing to contribute to the site and are not worth the trouble and headaches.
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.
Moderators and Administrators 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.
You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this bulletin board.
The admin team can at any time make invisible, delete or edit your posts for whatever reason they deem necessary. Edits will contain explanatory notes but deletions need not.
The admin/moderators have the right to ban members recruiting for other sites.
Failure to notify admin team with reasonable explanation before subscribing with multiple registrations will result in suspension of all accounts.
