These rules were established in order to promote an attractive, easy-to-read and easy-to-understand forum about everything concerning Tamaskan Dogs. By following these rules you are helping to maintain a friendly community environment in which everyone can participate equally. Since our members consist of owners, breeders, and enthusiasts from all over the world, it's important to remember to follow these rules for the benefit of others. Therefore, we would like to ask all (new) members of this forum to please read these rules carefully.

General:
The International Tamaskan Forum is a global community that unites Tamaskan enthusiasts of all ages, from all nationalities. This is a privately-funded forum and we would like to make clear that we do not tolerate fighting and drama. We kindly ask for you to refrain from causing trouble and, if you have a problem with another user or a subject posted here on the forum, to privately contact an Administrator or Moderator to discuss the situation in a civilized manner or to resolve the problem directly through private messages and emails.

Language:
The main language of this Forum is English. In the future we will be adding new sections for our Foreign Language members. Whatever the language, please keep in mind that profanity and obscenities will not be tolerated!

Posts:
1) Posts on the forum must be related to Tamaskans and/or similar subjects with exception of the Lounge Room, in which any topic can be freely discussed.
2) Posts containing discrimination, pornography, politics, religion and other similarly sensitive subjects will not be tolerated and might lead to a permanent ban from this forum.
3) When you want to post a question, please browse the threads first or use the Search function in order to see if your question has already been answered. This will save others from having to answer the “same question” over and over again.
4) Please try to post your new topics in the correct forum section. If you really do not know where your topic fits best, please use the general section; the moderators will move it to the correct section if necessary.
5) We would like to ask our members to respect other members' topics; please try to stay “on-topic” in your reply. When you want to discuss an unrelated subject please start a new topic of your own instead of “polluting” a topic that was created by someone else.
6) Any personal attacks, threats, or other types of harassment against other forum members are strictly prohibited. Problems between members should be solved outside the public forum by means of private messages, email, etc.
