CanvasCampers Forum Usage Policy

In plain English, you agree to:

Be Nice To Others
This is a family oriented outdoor and camping forum. We ask that anyone posting consider how a comment, remark, or response has been phrased before hitting the ‘post’ button. Smiley faces can help if you need a way to add nonverbal communication. Posts that directly attack another member or moderators that seem designed to stir up emotions and controversy will not be tolerated. Do not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person’s privacy, adult material including nudity or pornography, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. Posts with swearing and other foul language that others may find offensive, especially if it is language you wouldn’t wish your children to hear, may be subject to censoring by a Moderator. We ask that you keep in mind what one person may find funny or fine, other people may find offensive.

The Three Gs (God, Guns and Government)
Religion, Firearm and Politics , also known as the Three Gs (God Guns and Government), are particularly controversial and passionate to many members. This is an outdoors and camping forum there are other more appropriate forums to discuss these subjects.

Registration Email Addresses
Member accounts found to have invalid email addresses may be subject to suspension. We do not share or otherwise make available email addresses for any reason to any group or individual without permission. Admin or a moderator staff needing to reach you is often the only reason that a correct email address is required.

With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person for your protection and for validity reasons.
