Welcome to the message board for the GWPCA website. We hope that you enjoy your visit and learn alot about our wirey friends. However, we would ask that you follow a few rules of conduct while visiting here.

Please read the Terms Of Service & Privacy Policy before posting.

User Registration For This Board
You are allowed to register only one user name for use on the GWPCA forums, use of multiple names will result in your account being deleted.

A current and complete e-mail address. You must keep this email address up to date as we send announcements from time to time about the forums and other GWPCA items of interest. If we receive a returned email, bad email address, your account will be deleted. No exceptions.

1. NO POSTS ADVERTISING PUPPIES FOR SALE WILL BE ALLOWED
This is for two reasons. First is that this is an open board and we cannot guarantee the people posting are members of the GWPCA and have signed our code of ethics. The other reason is we have a breeder referral listing that members must pay to be on. It would not be fair to them if we also offered a place to advertise puppies for free. However, if you have puppies available, feel free to contact PRIVATELY anyone posting on the "looking for a puppy" list.

2. NO PUBLIC BREEDER REFERRALS.
This includes public discussion of specific dogs, breeders, bloodlines, etc. This is to limit inflammatory commentary, abusive posts and even possible litigation. If you wish to refer someone to a particular person or breeder or dog, please do so in a private message or email.

3. NO ADVERTISING.
Because the GWPCA does not support or endorse any particular products or services, we cannot allow such to be advertised on our boards.

4. IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL
Posts that contain abusive language, derogatory comments, inflammatory content, a continued negative tone or nature or are of an unsportsmanlike nature will not be allowed. We need to keep in mind we have new people visiting these boards every day. Continued breaking of this rule will result in the offending posts being edited and/or removed and/or the account being banned from this board along with a report to your service provider (ISP) for terms of service volations.

5. KEEP YOUR POSTS ON SUBJECT
This is a board for and about GWPs. Please keep your posts on that subject. Posts that are single line "Me toos", "Great Job!" or "Try our product" will be removed as they clutter up our boards and we can only use so much room.

More rules may be added to this list if they become necessary. Posts that, in the admin's opinion, go against the letter or spirit of these rules will be removed with no explanation or notice.

Thank you!

-The Management
