    Default RULES OF CONDUCT: IR's New World Order


    As Administrator, I've come to realize that we all need to renew and refresh our understanding of the Rules of The Squirrel Board. These rules apply to old members, new members, and administrators alike, and they will be enforced from now on, without exception. We are a family, yes, united in our love for squirrels. However, unlike a family, we do not have to tolerate disruptive personalities and will not be doing so anymore. I take complete responsibility for being overly tolerant in the past, and for most of the chaos that ensued.

    Please read and remember the following...

    RULES OF CONDUCT:

    1. Administration reserves the right to edit or delete any thread that is deemed problematic, inappropriate, or bad for TSB. This is not open for debate.

    2. Any post that attacks another member is subject to deletion and the poster is subject to a timeout or permanent ban. Administration reserves the right to judge what defines an "attack", and this is not open for debate.

    3. Sharing or forwarding PM's or any part of a PM, except to Administration, is not allowed and will not be tolerated.

    4.
    Every member of TSB will follow the General Rules as stated in Squerly's sticky at the top of this Forum. Anyone who breaks, bends or disregards these rules WILL be banned for whatever time frame is deemed appropriate.

    With such an adverse group of people as there are on TSB there is bound to be difference of opinions, what I have found to be personally disturbing is the lack of tact among some expressing that difference. What one may have to say could be very valid AND important, but I feel it gets lost in translation when its foundation is laid on the attack of another member.

    Read, Understood and Agree!

    Compared to some other boards that I USED to belong to. This one is very mello. Sometimes chaos erupt on here though. But I have seen much much worse. I think this board is very well taken care of.

    BANNED members will not be re-instated, and cannot join under another name.
    Some people simply cannot play well with others on an internet Forum, and there is no reason why those of us who can should have to put up with them.

    Obviously since i come here only every couple weeks, i don't see the drama this post was directed at. I'm not a rehaber in any way and can offer no advice to anyone,,, except to feel honored to have known a squirrel that passed. Hopefully i will never need the medical advice that can be found here, but i'm glad this site exists if i do ever need help. Overall..... if you love a squirrel... this is a GREAT site to be a part of!!!!!

    Thanks, Sqyrl. We're glad you did find us!
    Notice I haven't felt the need to bump this thread in almost six months. It's a Peaceable Kingdom, these days, and that gives us all more time and energy to save squirrels.

    I can't express how helpful this board has been! Everyone on here is very actively involved, responses are quick, some of the most down to earth people I've spoken to, if it wasn't for this board i KNOW i would have made many mistakes with the confusing information out there & i don't think the other sites have such a gathering of actual hands on experience, just a really great board, all coming together for the little squirrels! Thanks for providing such a wealth of information and support!
