    Rules, Regulations, and Disciplinary Actions

    Welcome to hedgehogworld.com\'s members forum. We are glad that you have decided to join us here! Please look around, read the existing posts, and post any questions that you have. We want to keep this a friendly forum where anyone is welcome to learn and participate, and we need your assistance to do so. Before creating a thread or responding to a post, please do the following:

    1) Make sure your information is reliable and realistic. Does your information make sense with the questions that are being asked? Does it actually comply with the current, up to date information that is available for hedgehog care? If your information is different than the typical care instructions, can you back it up with good, logical explanations?

    2) Make sure your post is polite. Calling names, making negative statements, or being nasty in any way shape or form is NOT acceptable.

    3) Be aware that sometimes your attitude and meanings do not come across clearly when writing instead of speaking. While you may have nothing but the best intentions with what you say, sometimes people may misunderstand you. Please look over what you have written before posting (this is what the preview button is for) to make sure you have stated what you want to say as clearly as possible.

    4) Be aware that sometimes YOU may misunderstand what someone is saying. If you have any concerns about what someone is saying, ask for clarification before you get irritable with them. If you do have a problem with something someone is saying, contact a moderator and let us deal with them, because we can do a lot more good with a lot less chaos.

    5) Keep things kid friendly. While we do not expect you to censor EVERYTHING you say to the extreme, vulgarity, profanity, graphic sexual content, violence, or anything else that is not kid friendly is not acceptable on this forum.

    6) Do not join this forum simply for the purpose of posting ads. Our active and participating members are welcome to post ads for their hedgehog related goods, services, events, etc. Members who are not active except for posting of ads will not be tolerated, please participate in the forums and get to know us first.

    7 )While the staff of Hedgehog World enjoys answering your questions and helping you out, what we do not enjoy is repeatedly answering the same questions that are already covered in our FAQ and articles. If you do not take the time to read the information on our site or repeatedly ask questions already covered on our site after being asked to read the information already on the site, you may be subject to disciplinary action including loss of posting privileges.

    If you do not follow these guidelines, the staff at hedgehogworld.com has the right and responsibility to take what actions we feel are necessary. When possible, we will try to contact you and explain what we feel is inappropriate, and give you the opportunity to continue with your posting privileges. However, in cases where the infraction is extreme, you may lose your posting privileges for the period of time deemed appropriate by the staff.

    In cases like this, we will notify you as soon as possible with an explanation of our disciplinary actions. ALL disciplinary actions will be evaluated on a case by case basis, and dealt with as the staff feels appropriate. Your disciplinary status will be held confidential on the side of the staff, and will not be discussed with anyone other than you.

    To all of our members.....

    Please take note of this reminder of the rules and regulations, and make sure that you are abiding within these rules.

    Your moderator and administration staff would like to throw out a huge thank you to all of our members, your involvement in this site and compassion and kindness towards hedgehogs and the people who are obsessed by them have made our site one that I feel that people enjoy visiting and learning from. We couldn\'t do it without you.

    Thank you all!
    Becca
