Terms of Service and Rules

Membership on CrossbowPredators.com is FREE! We do, however, insist that you abide by the rules detailed below.

All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of CrossbowPredators.com, nor Xenforo Ltd. will be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, hateful, threatening, or otherwise in violation of any laws.

Rules

The owners of CrossbowPredators.com reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well a ban or delete membership without recourse.

This is a private forum and not a public entity. Your membership here is dependent upon following a few, loose, rules, so that we can be effective.

You will have to register before you can participate in our Crossbow Hunting Forums.

Here's the rules in a nutshell, followed by the more formalized version below:

1. Be respectful and act like an adult

2. Offer your experience and knowledge

3. Do not hijack threads

4. Do not antagonize other members

1. Post Basics

Let's keep the discussion to the topic it is under. Keeping the threads and posts on topic, and focused around the varying aspects of crossbows and crossbow hunting is imperative for CrossbowPredators.com to be of value. We have no problem with humor and personal antics, as it livens up the place, let's just try to keep it on track. If it goes too far off track, we will simply lock the post up, and typically will leave it as is.

There is to be NO BASHING, whatsoever, of other members or forums.

The above is not all inclusive, but you get the point.

We are here to share information surrounding the topic of crossbows, crossbow hunting and associated interests. We have not put this forum up to provide a venue for argument or criticism. It's all good to ask questions, post comments, and even retorts. If you have any real beef with a post, either take your concern to PM, report the post (via the Report Post icon), or simply ignore it.

There are times when members will have it out with each other, or possibly even with the staff here. It will be allowed to go for a while, and will eventually be deleted. There are many reasons and causes for these types of wars, and we often are only privy to one side of the story, when there are usually 3 sides (one of which includes the truth). If you have trouble or a problem with it, take it to PM or simply avoid the thread, pretty simple.

2. Adult Photos & Content

Rated R is the key word here. Nothing over and above that, period. Image/Text deletion will result if violated. Repeat offenses will result in membership deletion and permanent ban. We are all adults, mostly men (no offense intended ladies), so the posting of bikini/scantily clad ladies is all good. The same would hold true for ladies wanting to post up pix of Chippendale type images.

3. PM Usage

If you have a message for a single person, or trouble with a post someone has made, use Private Messaging (PM) to address it.

4. Banning, Deletion, "Super Ban", etc...

Use your head and basic common sense. If you do that, all should be good, unless you have no common sense or are here to cause trouble. There is no recourse once you have been banned. You are simply gone, and we are efficient at covering these bases, technologically. On this topic, simply because a person is banned does NOT mean they cannot be referenced or used in pictures, that would be ridiculous, as they are usually someone's friend, hunting or shooting partner, etc... You can feel free to discuss or mention banned members, as that is how real people socialize and operate.

5. Cross Linking To Other Forums

For the most part, this is not an issue here on CrossbowPredators.com.

6. Image Content Here

Images posted on CrossbowPredators.com are inherently copyrighted by the same (unless copyright is held elsewhere). A watermark will be placed on all images in the Photo Gallery and attachments. This does not preclude any from using them elsewhere, only that said party needs to obtain permission from CrossbowPredators.com to do so. No charges will ever be levied. This holds true for any smileys created by this site as well.

Stay tuned, and stay aware.

Forum Etiquette

Please do not TYPE YOUR MESSAGES IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS LIKE THIS LINE. This translates as shouting on the internet. Granted, sometimes it is appropriate, but don't do it as a rule

Any warning from a forum administrator or moderator should be discussed with that person in private, over Private Messaging, not in public forum.

If a thread is closed, a similar thread should not be opened. Likewise, one shouldn't post a thread to inquire as to why it was closed. This should be posed to forum administration with a Private Message.

If a post is quoted in your reply, you should only quote a small relevant section of it, not the entire post.

Before opening a new thread, you should search the database and make sure that subject has not been discussed before. If it has, you should add your post inside the existing thread and not post a new one.

If a post is against rules (or you think it may be), you should not reply, quote it or discuss it in the forum. Instead, you should click the "Report This Post" link and notify forum moderators to take action as they deem necessary.

If any word in your post is replaced by ***, this means it is in our word filter list and that you should not use that word in the forum again. Please do not attempt to bypass the filter list by manipulating the syntax of the word. This could lead to a temporary or permanent ban from the forums.

If you receive a Private Message or email from another user, you should not post it publicly without prior consent of the sender.

If you don't like a member in the forum, you should put him on your ignore list. Do not flame forums regarding such users or reply to their posts negatively.

These are just a few. Common sense should prevail when posting.
