3.) Please attempt to post topics in the correct sub-forum, if one exists. If you post a topic and it disappears, there is a chance that it was moved to a more appropriate forum. (From your profile view page, you can use the "statistics" tab to find all of your posts. Try this before you assume that your thread was deleted.)
4.) If you see a bad post -- spam, advertising, harassment, personal attacks, etc -- use the "report" button located on the left-hand side of the post, under the user's name and basic data. We do review all reported posts and act accordingly. Abuse of the "report" feature will result in disciplinary action against the abuser. Do not attempt to backseat moderate if you see rule violations. Report the post and let us do our job.
5.) Do not argue with forum staff. If you disagree with a moderating decision, you can address the staff member via private message, or take your dispute to Dave (Redog). Do not attempt to "call out" moderators on the forums. Also, one infraction isn't the end of the world. Except in extreme cases, we will usually offer you plenty of chances to act right before we bring out the ban stick.
6.) Spirited debate is allowed and encouraged, but no personal attacks or threats. Don't be a jerk. We don't care who started it; we'll finish it.
7.) Don't bring drama from other forums here. All baggage will be checked at the door. No carry-ons.
8.) GoPitbull.com welcomes varied enthusiasts from all walks of life. We have people who admire the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Bully, and many other bull breeds. We will not allow the bashing of any breeds/types as we are all here for the love of these great dogs. If you are going to engage in contentious topics, put your big-kid britches on and behave yourself.
10.) All discussions on the use of these dogs must be in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act of 1976. Historical accounts and descriptions are acceptable, but GoPitbull does not condone and will not allow any acts of animal cruelty to be posted herein.
