One of our goals here at WaGuns is to have as much of a self-moderated forum as possible. We are (hopefully) all adults and should be able to either play well with each other, or at least pretend to.

By being a members of WaGuns, we expect you to follow this simple Code of Conduct:

1) Respect - We ask all members to respect one another, whether they have earned it or not. Verbal attacks on other members will not be tolerated; we may call each other names in jest, and that is fine, but please do not cross the line to hostility. Disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, inciting arguments or baiting others to do so, engaging in ad hominem attacks during a discussion, or publicly demanding or insinuating that another member should be banned is never acceptable.

2) Posting of Prohibited Material - Re-posting of copyrighted work is not allowed; please follow the guidelines in Posting of Copyrighted Material. WaGuns will not be held liable for any item that you post. We also ask that you do not post pornographic or offensive material in threads. We do have a NSFW area available to those who feel they need it. No nudity is allowed in the non-NSFW areas.

3) Hate Free Zone - WaGuns will not tolerate hate speech of any kind directed at a particular race, culture, lifestyle, or group. This includes bashing of other online forums; WaGuns is not in competition with other forums and cooperates and has relationships with many other sites. Please be respectful towards other communities.

4) Expectation of Privacy - The end user should have no expectation to privacy. Most of what is said on these forums can be read by the public. That being said, the Administration of WaGuns believes that Private Messages are just that, private. The Administration has not installed ANY modification to the site to allow us to read any of your PMs. The Administration, though, has the right to all information on this forum, and may revise this Privacy Policy or any other policies on a case-by-case scenario. PLEASE NOTE: If a member uses the "report" button on a PM, then the moderators will be able to view that PM and may take action if there is a violation of the Code of Conduct. It is never acceptable for any member to publicly post a PM without the permission of the person who sent it.

5) Compliance with Laws - All WaGuns users are expected to comply with all local, state and federal laws when posting on the site. Please be aware that the Administration of WaGuns will comply with all legitimate law enforcement requests for information related to active investigations.

6) Only One Account Per Person - Only one WaGuns account is allowed per person; creation of a second account will likely result in both accounts being banned. If you are having log-in problems with your account and don't know why, please e-mail webmaster@WaGuns.org and we will help. NOTE: We may allow both a personal and a business account in cases where a member represents a firearms-related business.

7) Representing Our Community - It is expected that all members will represent our firearms community in a positive light. Do not post anything that may cause embarrassment to WaGuns or the firearms community in general.

8) Don't be a dick. - Yes, this one is a self-explanatory catch-all.

If you feel a person has violated a rule or this Code of Conduct, please report the post and/or contact a moderator.

^ Fixed. Apologies, it was rule #4, not #6 as I indicated earlier.
