I agree with Roo.

I know I'm guilty of some of these as well, and plan on minding my own behavior in the future. It's nice to have them stated, and I know if I ask the mods can give me their input.

Well, to be honest, to be fair..yes the rules have always been laxed...due to the fact we had such a small forum for a long time, and we were all super close.

But, we grow...and as we grow, different personalities come...Now, I Have to put my foot down, as does the rest of the staff. If I want to keep the haven.

I know some members might think it's just about them..and that is far from the truth. If they look they will see that I've spoken about someone who had abused this board within 24 hours...and then another issue that arose with 2 brand new members.

These updates are for Everyone, not singled out one or two people, but For everyone.

Sometimes, one must do such things to weed out the crap.

I warned people not to long ago, that i was sick and tired of the trolling, of the harassment, of everything, and that there were gonna be some major changes.

Well now they are beginning. ^^

They may seem a little strict, but that will pass I think. ^^
The board will still always be as caring and loving as before. At least, I endeavor for it to be as such.

I think you have mostly been OK Mint. I may be wrong, but thus far you really haven't done much to warrant anything.

I want to remind everyone that this isn't a witch-hunt.  Everyone as of the posting of the revised rules today is on a clean slate, and equal ground. I agree with Roo, and Mint, JT, Kat, everyone knows that the rules were lax. At that time we really didn't need strict rules. It was a smaller forum back then, with less troubles, and less drama.

This is just a place to talk about what you think of the rules. I hope on one thinks that they are in trouble, or threatened by the rules. We put them here to protect everyone and keep the forum a happy place to be for all.

I hope not, if it is, Kat and I will be the first to go since we're the only witches on the board. (a little pagan humor to try and lighten the mood, sorry)

I have much more to say, but I will hold my tongue out of fear of being called a troll. I have read the rules and will throttle back my posts to make sure I comply.

Alrighties, I've gotten a nice PM about some concerns over the new rules, and I have taken each point into consideration with an open mind. 

Remember, the rules aren't written in stone, and they can change if it will benefit the site and its members, so if you have a concern you'd like to voice, and you're a bit hesitant about posting it on the open board, you are welcome to PM me or Kat or any of the staff, and your concerns will be read through thoroughly and addressed accordingly. :)

We care about Furrie Haven very much, and each different perspective helps us know how to better serve you, the members.  So please don't be bashful.  Let us know how you feel. :)

Ok, it's come to my attention, that people are very worried these rules.
First, let me clear some things up for everyone.  These rules have not changed. They are the very same as they always were. The only change there is, is that they are easier to read.

There Was an addition to the rules, and that is the Right to Ban without the 3 warnings. I understand that this could be daunting. Please allow me to clear this up.
Only I can ban someone. However the mods Can suggest it to me. The Reasons for such a ban would be harassment of the members, And the destruction of the board. We've only had to do that once. And I hope that will be all.

Now, again to be clear. Only I can ban a member. Not Jt, Not Jeeves and Not Shadowe. Also, before a ban can even happen, we ALL have to talk about it.  we All have to be on the same page about it. IF there is a way to clear things up, to fix things, to come to an understanding without banning, then that is what we will do.

Now, I understand a lot of you might feel that  the mods or even myself are abusing power. There was a whole great big thing about threads being deleted.
Because of the fact we need proof of things, None of us, delete threads. Because I fully didn't understand the permissions, it was set that members could delete their own threads. And why not? If they have the button, then why not use it. We are not blaming mind you, nor are they in trouble. If you got it, use it. If it's there then it must be ok to use right?

Unfortunately that caused a lot of problems. And I understand that it's my word against everyone else's. So, all I can say is, it's up to you to decide if I'm telling the truth.  I do not mean to sound harsh, it's just I realize that is how it is.

Now, with any luck, I believe I have all the permissions set now. I Did miss one, and now that one is taken care of as well.

Please understand, I find the permissions in the back end to be a little confusing for me at times. I try my best but well I am human ;) and believe me I make a lot of mistakes. ^^

I want Everyone to know, we are not turning super strict. We Want you to express yourselves. We want you to have your opinions. Say what you will.  Of course I want you to remember where some things can go..yanno like Adult things in Adult and so on.  The rules are not to hinder you at all, but to allow for our members to be safe from those that would harm the board.  A fine example...remember that Last member? The one I had to report to the higher authorities? It's to protect you all from people like That.

Jt, Jeeves, and Shadowe, want the same thing I want for this board. And that is to be a family, a close knit caring family.  And sometimes,  it's not easy to maintain that.  Sometimes, I'll let my feelings dictate my posts, and then, it's not fair.  For that I apologize, And I will try harder to be a better admin.

We All will try harder, to bring Furrie Haven back to what it once was. The members here are wonderful, I will always stand by that. I want for all of you to know, that you Are cared for, that We care about what you think, feel, what you want from the board, what you'd like to see. 

So please, if you have a problem with the mods or myself or the rules, please know that you Can come to us in pm, email, or even on messenger and talk to us about it.  I give you my word that you will Not be reprimanded, or treated unfairly.

Just talk to us, and we will do what we can. Because this board was created For you.

Kata'lina.

This sounds like things are settled to me. I'm glad.

I could no without the flogging, cap in the ass, or the rest, however.... there might be other punishments I would be willing to accept... but that is for another time and place.

Does Anything last? No. Sid this is Not a utopia. We are Not perfect. We simply do the very best we possibly can. Just like this time around.

We're always going to have disagreements, our job is to endeavor to do the best we possibly can to be fair, honest and open.

Life is a learning experience...heh running a board is no exception.
