Forum Rules : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Generally on the 1st of the month I am trying to post the forum rules, so once again here they are for your review. Thanks everyone.

All of you regulars can skip this!!! I am sure you are sick of me saying it over and over... But if you are still reading, here are the rules, and they are pretty simple! What is allowed: any post about family life, living in the country, animals, getting to know you type questions, religious postings (most all of these are Christian in nature, so if that will offend you, this probably isn't the place for you!) prayer requests, quotes, stories, book reviews, and discussions, recipes, questions about homesteading, money saving hints, tightwad tips... and much, much more!

NO profanity, no questionable jokes, no name-calling,no disrespectful postings, NO SARCASM (seems to be the most often dis-obeyed!!) I am the moderator, and if I delete it there is no debate.

If you see something questionable that I didn't catch, e-mail me and I will take care of it!

If you post a new thread, PUT IT IN A CATEGORY!!!! I don't have time to do this, so if it isn't put in one, it won't be!!

On Mitch's stumpers, he requests that you DO NOT use computer search engines: use your brain, your encyclopedia, your kid, your dictionary, or his clues. It is his topic area and that is his rule!

Some other regular features: Hoot's corner, featuring religious and old time postings, What's for supper? tightwad tips, Prayer requests (posted for the week on Saturday evening) Thursday Check Ins for those trying to lose weight and get healthier, Recipes from A to Z, (which will be starting again soon!), and many more regular features.

Do not post topics simply to start a fight. I don't like it, and it will probably be deleted.

Our purpose is to help one another, in a kind and compasionate manner. We are here to give advice, share our triumphs and troubles, to give needed support and encouragement in an understanding way! Welcome to Country Families,and enjoy the forum!!

I just want to express my appreciation for this forum. I came across this forum quite by accident and just love it. The values expressed here are very close to mine, and it is refreshing to hear all the common sense topics that really fit my lifestyle. Thanks Melissa for telling the rules, I did not know them and think they are really good. Those rules are what makes this a worthwhile place to come and share. Thank you and God Bless.

Hi Melissa

I humbly offer thoughts on a couple of other aspects of Country families forum that you might want to promote, and one rephrasing that is more welcoming:

:(most all of these are Christian in nature, so be forewarned!) prayer requests, inspirational ideas, poems, trivia, and tales old and new...
