    Default ERAS Forums Terms of Service - PLEASE READ!!

    1. Users agree not to hold the Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society (ERAS) or it’s agents liable for anything stated in the forums.
    2. ERAS reserves the right to delete posts in violation of the site’s TOS without giving reason or explanation before or after the fact.
    3. Creating multiple user names for the same individual is prohibited. User names, avatars or signatures deemed to be profane or offensive will be changed or deleted. Any user allowing friends, visitors, siblings, spouses etc. to post under their login name assumes the full responsibility of assuring all content posted conforms to the rules of the TOS. Failure to do so may result in a ban on the user name.
    4. Using profanity is not allowed and is grounds for having your post deleted. This includes trying to bypass our filter by using alternate characters to spell a profane word. Posts deemed to be offensive will be removed immediately. This includes racist, sexist, religious, hateful or sexual comments or content.
    5. Post messages in the correct topical forum. Off-topic posts will be moved to the appropriate forum.
    6. Please do not cross-post within the ERAS forums. Making identical posts in different forums is prohibited.
    7. Personal attacks or making libelous statements about individuals or organizations is prohibited. Discrimination/prejudice of any type including, but not limited to racism, religion, culture, gender and sexual orientation as determined by the moderators.
    8. Inciting fights or partaking in deliberately disruptive behavior as determined by the moderators will not be tolerated.
    9. No using copyrighted images without prior permission of the copyright holder.
    10. E-mail or private message excerpts of any type or length are not allowed. There are no exceptions to this rule.
    11. Advertising other web sites is not permitted. You may put a link in your signature or refer to another site in your post if it pertains to the topic of a thread, but the topic and reason for the link can't be primarily to promote another site.
    12. Advertising of Retail Stores in the forums is not permitted. We offer paid advertisements for anyone that needs it.
    13. Posting non-herp related petitions or links to non-herp related petitions is prohibited.
    14. Classified ads are prohibited in the forums. This includes links to ads on other sites or any posts where the content indicates that you are looking to buy animals/goods or to sell animals/goods.
    15. Any post in the forums deemed to be a classified, will be deleted without notice.
    16. The TOS maybe updated at any time without notice.
    17. All infractions will be dealt with at the moderators' discretion.

      The administrators & moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible. However, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore, you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators, or webmaster (with exception to the personal posts by these people) and hence they will not be held liable. Once a post is made it becomes public property and its content may be used by others.
      This forum is not a venue for personal or private vendettas. Keep your personal business as just that – PERSONAL. This forum is not a venue for the resolution of personal disputes with other members or companies.

      Rules and Terms for using the Classifieds section
    18. All classifieds are locked (ie. only the seller and the moderators will be able to modify or post to the thread).
    19. All sales are between the seller and the buyer. Classified users agree not to hold ERAS responsible for any actions by either party, and therefore will not be held liable for the actions of others.
    20. Items such as guns, drugs, stolen property etc are prohibited.
    21. The classified advertisement must contain the following information:
      a. All reptiles must be advertised either captive bred (CB), captive hatched (CH), wild caught (WC) or long-term captive specimens (LTC).
