Terms of Service in using this community

Postby katrina(admin) » Mon Jun 04, 2012 10:29 am

The maremma community list is a privately owned community forum - membership is open to anyone who would like to register and is free for general usage however this is not a public domain where anyone can say anything at another's expense. It exists to provide a friendly environment where both new and experienced Maremma owners and enquirers can get information, assistance and support. The following rules reflect this and are intended to ensure that members treat each other with respect and consideration at all times, and all members contributions are respected.
The forum is administered by a committee of 4 people - their user names here are maremmagirl, John, Cowdy and Dogbesotted, feel free to contact them at any time with any questions you have concerning this community.

1) All topics relating to the Maremma Sheepdog may be discussed. The community site has been organised in a way that allows the information we share to be organised into subjects with threads inside each subject. You are requested to attempt to keep your posts within these, even if you have to take the time to send a couple of posts. The idea behind this is that anyone searching for information they need at any point in time should be able to find that information easily. This also greatly helps new members to find their way around quickly and easily.

2) Breeders who would like to advertise may become a breeder member for a fee of $5 per ad and can then advertise within the community in the provided FOR SALE community. You must limit your advertising to this section only. To register to advertise please click the Pay for Advertising Here link near the top of the page allowing you to pay using PayPal, or email katrina@maremmano.com. No other advertising is permitted except in this section without permission of admin. Any other member may advertise anything else for sale here at a fee of $5 per ad.

3) Messages may be posted concerning rescue dogs that have become available and these must always be placed in the Rescue forum section, however you can also post about rescues in other forums, particularly when a dog is in an urgent need situation.

4) The administration committee has the right to end a topic for the benefit of th entire community.

Moderation of members postings

5) The administration committee retains the right to moderate any member. New members are moderated as a matter of course. They will receive an email notification when their posts are approved. This rule is in place to ensure we do not get spammed and is for the benefit of the entire community.
Existing members may be moderated if it is felt that a particular discussion is liable to lead to postings in breach of the list rules.

6) Community members must not be personally abusive of other members and must ensure that their postings do not libel any community member or any other party.
Any breach of any of these rules may lead to a member being moderated or, in repeated cases, being removed from the community.

In more than 12 years of this community operating through various platforms we are very pleased to say that we have rarely had any breaches of these terms of use and they have always been dealt with quickly and politely, so we are certain you will have no problem with accepting and adhering to these terms and enjoying a wonderful experience of participating with the amazing, caring and helpful members of this community.
