Real Name Rule

Real Name Rule

Your profile is required to include, at a minimum, your surname (family name) and first initial. This is for security purposes. You may choose to not show this name to other users by editing your profile settings, but the name must be in the profile.

You agree that any information you provide to us is real (such as your identity and e-mail address). Fraudulent and false information submitted by users could lead to banning from the forum and possible legal proceedings for breach of confidence.

Country Rule

We take pride in the international nature of Caudata.org. For this reason, you are required to include your country of nationality in your profile (e.g. France). This is publicly viewable.

Civility

Civility

We do not allow personal attacks. Users may disagree with someone's idea, but users may not make derogatory comments about another person. We encourage all users to write in a civil manner, and the moderators and administrators will take steps to stop discussions that are heading toward a flame war.

We also request that members refrain from using profanity. The members of Caudata.org are diverse and includes members as young as thirteen. Please respect them and our other members by not swearing.

By posting advice and information you agree that it is correct to the best of your knowledge. You also agree to refrain from posting fictional or false information. The moderators and administrators of Caudata.org will decide at their sole discretion if a user is posting false information, and they will penalise or ban users found to be repeatedly posting erroneous, misleading or malicious information.

Excessive Posting

Excessive Posting

We require all users to agree to a guideline of 8 messages per 24 hour period. Please do not exceed this limit unless it is absolutely necessary. Excessive posting, posting of the same message in multiple places and/or multiple times are considered a contravention of this rule and may result in your account being banned. This will be decided by the administrators of Caudata.org.

Misuse of Private Messaging

Misuse of Private Messaging

Users agree to not harass or spam other users of Caudata.org either through the private messaging system found on Caudata.org or directly through email addresses given in confidence by other Caudata.org users. Soliciting/harassment, discussion of illegal (according to US law) or socially unacceptable matters or practices, and contacting a user aged under 18 regarding specifically non site-related matters will result in a permanent ban and blacklisting of your IP address – this will not be reversed. This option can also be used at a moderator’s discretion. Most offences of this kind do not receive a warning for the first offence, so consider this that warning. This matter also pertains to the Privacy Policy (linked below), so please ensure you read that document too.

If you are the victim of a user misusing the private message system, please use the report feature on the private message or contact a moderator immediately and send them a copy of the offending message(s).

Standard English Usage

Standard English Usage

We require that English speakers not write in nonsense words (such as those used in text messages). Please refrain from the use of words like "gonna," and please use good grammar and punctuation. Remember that new subjects and sentences warrant the use of a capital letter. Proper punctuation will make your message much easier to understand, and thus improve the discussion. Banning won't occur for such offences, but we actively encourage moderators and users to lower the reputation of users who insist on speaking drivel. Non-native English speakers will not be penalized for grammatical errors.

Locality Information

Locality Information

It is against forum rules to request specific locations for animals in the field. No requests for this information or any references to the specific county, city or coordinates of animals are allowed.

Acceptable topics include asking for habitat preferences and general field herping tips (i.e. check fence rows or rock walls.)
