Forum Rules

Although the administrators and moderators of Bushcraft USA will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and Bushcraft USA, LLC, will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owners of Bushcraft USA reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

1. Usernames/Avatars: Please do not use a business name or logo as a username or avatar. The ONLY exception to this rule is if you purchase and maintain a Vendor membership. Also remember that people will use this as a way to reference you so please use names that people can pronounce. No offensive usernames or avatars will be tolerated. Any user name deemed to be likely to offend or give cause for argument or divisions on the board will be summarily banned.

2. Advertising and Self-Promotion: No advertising or self-promotion will be allowed on the open forum. If you make or sell goods or have the intent of selling goods in the future you may not post those items here on the forum even if the item is not listed for sale. For example, if you currently sell or plan to sell a “widget” on ebay, a gunshow, another website, brick and mortar store, etc. you are prohibited from listing that widget on this forum without the appropriate subscription. Please see the subscription list for the one that best meets your needs. If you sell goods anywhere else it is not OK to list them here to “share with those who are like-minded” even if you do not list it for sale, this will be seen as indirect advertising and will be removed. You may not link to blogs or other websites without providing content in this forum. It is permissible to link to a blog if you also repost all of the content here as well otherwise the post will be deleted. Posting a youtube video is OK but if your sole purpose for coming here is to promote your channel those posts will be deleted.

3. Vendor Classifieds and Trade Blanket: No buying, selling or trading is allowed except in the Vendor Classifieds or Trade Blanket forums and with only the proper membership. To use our sales forums, you must upgrade your account, by clicking on the "Upgradee Account" link at the top of the forums. Vendor memberships can sell in the Vendor Classifieds. The Trade Blanket is reserved for Supporting and Hobbyist memberships.

4. Be Respectful: On this forum we have plenty of disagreements but rudeness will not be tolerated.

5. Offensive Material: No nudity, profanity, or sexually oriented pictures or videos.

6. Illegal activity: All discussions of any illegal activity will be deleted immediately and the user will be banned.

7. Relevance: This is a topic oriented forum, please try to keep the discussions relevant. Like most forums, trolls are banned. Politics and religious discussions have no place on this bushcraft forum.

8. Uploading Images to Messages: Message image uploads are limited in size to 800x600. The system will resize them to a maximum 800 pixels on their longest edge, if you upload larger images. Alternative image hosting services such as Flickr and Photobucket are available, as well as hosting on BushcraftUSA.com, with the appropriate membership.

9. Sub-forum Rules: Additional rules may be found under the individual forums and sub-forums throughout the directory.

10. Once an account is created neither the account nor the posts under the account may be deleted. Posting content on an internet forum for anyone to read implies that you give consent to make the information public, is not copyrighted and becomes the property of the forum. Requests of this nature will not be honored under any circumstances by the administrators.

11. Bushcraft USA reserves the right to change these Rules and Terms of Use at any time for any reason. Please keep in mind that this is a privately owned forum and all content is subject to the approval of the administrators and may be deleted/modified/moved at their discretion without explanation.
