This is a community for people interested in reptiles and amphibians. We can swap stories, give and receive advice, and just generally have fun knowing we enjoy the company of some of the coolest, most under-appreciated animals on the planet.
1. No personal attacks, flaming, name calling, or rude behavior. Not everyone has the same opinions, experience, and information that you do. Don't assume that you know everything there is to know about a person or a situation based on one post. And no matter how wrong-headed or misinformed someone is, remember that you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. This is a community, not a shooting gallery. This doesn't mean you can't tell people they're doing something wrong; just don't be an ass about it, don't attack people, don't go around making baseless assumptions.
Failure to adhere to this rule will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from this community. You will be warned once. If your behavior is not corrected, you will be subject to a 7day suspension. If it continues further upon your return, it will be made permanent.
2: Do not disallow comments when you post, or delete comments made by other members. This is strictly forbidden... This is a community, not your soap box. The moderators will use their own discretion when deleting offensive posts or comments. Do not take matters into your own hands.
3: Please Use LJ-cuts for photos over 500 pixels wide. We like seeing pictures of your animals. But at the same time, a number of us use dial-up. And large pictures throw off the formatting of our friends pages. So please, if you're posting a large picture, or if you're posting multiple pictures, use an LJ-cut.
