Message from the board regarding discussion list guidelines
Dear Eclectus Group List Members:
The list guidelines, welcome message, and description merely indicate
We rely on the common sense of each and every list member to interpret the guidelines within the spirit of this intent. Regardless of whether or not an example is listed specifically in the guidelines, the intentremains clear. It is to help us avoid violating the character of the
If anyone has a question about whether a post might 'cross the line' from acceptable to unacceptable, share it with the list owner first.
We don't wish to be unreasonable. Mistakes can be made; we are all human. If someone should inadvertantly violate the intent of the guidelines, that person will have it explained privately the first time. A second offense will generate either read-only status or unsubscription from the list, at the discretion of the BOD.
Discussion List Guidelines (Not all-inclusive)
This list is for discussion of Eclectus parrot topics only.
We ask that members list their Name, City, and State in addition to their email address in the list profiles.
Profiles will be accessible to members only.
This is not a chat list. Off-topic posts, one-liners, discourtesy, accusations, innuendo, discrediting, emotional outbursts, 'flames', and similar behaviors characteristic of chat lists are not appropriate.
Messages of "thank you" or "congratulations" can and should be sent privately. On the other hand, flames to another member regarding list discussions will result in the offender being banned from the list, if reported to the list owner.
The only advertising allowed is that of Eclectus pairs and young.
