All new members signed a basic forum policy agreement when they registered. It was our preference to not have to post more "rules" but it's become apparent after a period of time some guidelines need to be clarified and reinforced.
1. Be respectful toward other forum members. There will be zero tolerance for confrontational, offensive, or otherwise unacceptable posts directed towards others.
2. No fund raising or direct sales of products. The organizations involved in providing the live Eagle Cam and The Wildlife Center of Virginia appreciate and need public support. The forum encourages that support by providing links to make direct donations to each of those organizations. Members sharing their talents to raise funds have been encouraged to provide a link to their websites in the signature area of their posts and we support and applaud their generous spirit.
Comments posted for the purpose of directing attention to personal fund raising projects or products will be removed. The use of any forum function for the purpose of soliciting is not permitted. Members assume sole responsibility for the transfer of any property rights or financial transactions with other members.
