All of the Policies and Guidelines cover all areas of Bearville Guide Forums, whether it be the forums and the member profiles.Advertising Personal Sites/Forums:
Please do not advertise external sites or forums within bearvilleguide.com, without the site owner's permission. We do not have a problem with other sites; however, we cannot monitor the activities of other sites. Any link to any external site will be deleted unless it has been previously approved by the site owner.
The exception to this rule are Build-A-Bear Workshop® affiliated websites, BGF affiliated websites, official weblinkers or approved video hosting sites. If you are unsure if a site is suitable, then contact an officer for approval.Inappropriate Content/Material:
Posts or Member profiles that contain, or make reference to, race, ethnic origin, religious belief, or orientational preference are not appropriate for this site. Also, posts containing foul language, or making reference to nudity, violence, or drug and alcohol use (or any other illegal substance), are not allowed within BGF. Officers will edit or delete any item not adhering to this rule immediately, and will take appropriate action against the member, according to the severity of the offense.Flaming:
This is when a user intentionally disrupts a thread by posting inaccurate, inflammatory, or hateful comments. This is usually done with the desire to get a heated reaction from other posters. Keep in mind that this is a family-oriented and kid-friendly site, and our forums are not meant for instigating arguments. Whereas members may have a difference in opinion, be sure to keep fighting to a minimum.Spamming:
Spamming can be considered multiple things; but overall, spam is any post that does not follow or contribute to the subject matter of the original topic. We do not tolerate spamming on BGF.Signatures:
Signatures may be no larger than 250 pixels high by 500 pixels wide. This rule is in place to show consideration to others while using the forums. If your signature exceeds 250 pixels in height, an officer will send you a private message to ask you to resize your image. If you see this reminder, decrease your signature size immediately.Impersonation of Other Members:
Creating accounts that use similar, or existing, member names in order to slander existing members, or cause misconceptions towards another member, is not allowed. This behavior will quickly lead to being suspended from BGF.Impersonation of Special Bearville Friends:
Creating accounts under the names of MaxineCEB, ChloeRocks, CyBearGuides, SheaMegale and posing as these special characters will quickly lead to being suspended from BGF.Sharing and Multiple Accounts:
Members are only allowed to have one account. If you have more than one account, your additional accounts will be suspended indefinitely. Multiple members of a single household are encouraged to each have their own account. That way you may each state your own opinion freely. Do not let others on your account ever. If they do something that is against the rules, your account could be suspended.Rules regarding codes
1. Posting of purchased item codes is not allowed. A purchased item code comes from items purchased in Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and other retail stores. While the codes given MAY be universal or generic, we do not post those codes here as a respect to those who bought those items for the code.
