Community Guidelines & FAQ

Community Guidelines

This is a community of hobbyists, newbies, experienced and inexperienced people.

RESPECT IS THE KEY

Pets Do is a place where it's okay to be yourself -- be that harried, jovial, silly or sad -- as long as you always act with respect for your fellow Pets Doers.

Pretend you run these forums; in essence, you do. Before you hit the submit button think if you would allow that post on your own site or forums. Only you can prevent Spam and cross posting.

If you've been caught or accused of a wrongdoing please don't be irrational. When we revoke privileges we do so to preserve the professionalism of the forums, not as a personal vendetta.

REPUBLISHING YOUR WORDS

We know that your words are filled with knowledge of how things work in the real word, because of this we have dedicated ourselves to bringing the best of our community to a larger audience. We do this by including links to your posts throughout the network and using discussion topics for the basis of new articles and features. We reserve the right to quote your discussion forum posts in newsletters, throughout the Pets Do network and in Pets Do promotions. When republishing your quotes for wide distribution, we will identify you only by your Pets Do member name.

HOW TO REPORT A PROBLEM OR GET HELP

If you come across any violations to these guidelines or have any problems navigating the site, do not hesitate to let us know by contacting us

We'll be happy to address your concerns.

Here at Pets Do we encourage everyone to participate in and enjoy the community through the following Guidelines:

WELCOME NEWCOMERS

One reason the Pets Do is so special is that we welcome all newcomers, regardless of their level of knowledge or experience. Help new members learn about how to find information and resources, and how to get involved in the community.

DON'T ATTACK EACH OTHER

Don't attack others. Personal attacks, including accusations of wrongdoing, are not allowed in the public areas of the forums, even if they are well intentioned (ie, to "warn others"). Pets Do is not a place to air your grievances. If you have a dispute with somebody, please keep it in private or risk having your posts removed or being banned. Thank you.

ONLY ONE ACCOUNT PER PERSON, PLEASE

We only allow one account per person. We enforce this very strictly as it helps us deal with problems. If you lose access to your account, do not create another one as it may be banned. You should contact an advisor for help.

KEEP PERSONAL INFORMATION PERSONAL

Before you post, consider that what you post will not only appear on our forum, but may also come up in searches and on external search engines. If you do not wish to make a piece of information public knowledge, do not post it.

KEEP YOUR POSTS CLEAN

There may be places where explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics or behavior is appropriate however Pets Do is not one of them. Discussion forum posts that contain explicit, obscene or vulgar language will be removed. Similarly, discussion forum posts that solicit or offer explicit or X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or similar content files will be deleted without notice!

BE COURTEOUS: AVOID DUPLICATE POSTS

Do not post the same discussion more than once on a discussion forum or on many forums. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members, especially for those whose time and energy is limited. Duplicate discussions will be deleted. Reposting the same message repeatedly can be interpreted as spam and could result in the loss of your membership.

ADVERTISING

The Pets Do Community has a strict, no-self-promotion policy. Linking to your own web pages or pages from sites which you are affiliated with (including affiliate links) will be deemed as self-promotion and could result in the loss of your membership. Under certain conditions, links to your site can be placed into your forum signature.

AVATARS

Avatars are small images that can be included in your user profile.

POSTING CONTENT FROM OTHER PEOPLE OR WEBSITES

Copying any content from another person's work, or another website, is not allowed without express permission from the creater/owner of the original work. Even if you attribute the article correctly it is still copyright infringement. Do not reproduce substancial parts of articles or news items from other sites in the forums. If you don't have permission to copy something then always err on the side of caution and simply post a link to the material at its original location, or quote a short excerpt only, indicating where the quote came from. Pets Do shall not be held responsible for member-posted information that violates copyright.

FINALLY, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT

Pets Do and its assigned agents reserves the right to remove a post which does not relate to the topic being discussed in the forum. In addition, Pets Do reserves the right to organize discussion forums in order to best serve the majority of our members. For example, narrow-interest or minimal activity topics may, at Pets Do's discretion, be relocated to a more appropriate discussion forum, or deleted entirely.

Pets Do or its assigned agents also reserves the right to prohibit or delete discussions that are thought to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members, the sites that comprise Pets Do, or the rights of Pets Do or others. That said, Pets Do does not have the practical ability to restrict conduct or communications that might violate these Guidelines or the Terms of Service prior to transmission on AOL or the Web, nor can we ensure prompt removal of offending discussion forum posts.

We also reserve the right to remove your membership from you should you violate these Guidelines

Thanks and enjoy the community!
