      I'm happy to announce some recent changes to BPN's Forum Guidelines, Member Benefits and Staff.
      First, the changes made to our Forum Guidelines.


      #10 Administrators and Moderators are entrusted with the ability and responsibility of removing objectionable and/or off topic posts. A warning may be sent to the offending party or parties involved. If the rule violations are severe, or if they continue after a warning, a user's privileges to access BPN can be terminated without notice.

      #13Private Messaging is for personal use only - using it as a mass-marketing tool is forbidden. All forum rules apply to Private Messaging including but not limited to- not harassing, agitating, showing hostility towards or being persistently unpleasant or argumentative to another user or Staff Member.

      #15 Members nor Users will be permitted to restrict or inhibit any other member or user from using and enjoying the forum by harassing, intentionally agitating, showing hostility towards or being persistently unpleasant or argumentative. If BPN Administrators or Moderators determine that a user has violated this rule, a warning may be sent to the offending party. If the violations are severe, or if they continue after a warning, a user's privileges to access BPN can and will be terminated without notice.

      #16 If asked by a BPN Administrator or forum Moderator to cease posting content deemed offensive, objectionable, off topic, or in poor taste by said Administrator forum Moderator, you must agree to do so.

      #18 Images should not exceed 250 kilobytes nor should they exceed 1024 pixels on the horizontal side or 800 pixels on the vertical side.

      In addition to clarifying our guidelines we have added two new forum features.

      As mentioned in an earlier thread ( http://www.birdphotographers.net/for...hoto-and-Video!) we have Membership fees that are among the lowest on the internet.

      No one at BPN receives a salary or is on a payroll. We have no employees.
      Our modest membership fees(only $20 US annually)are used to maintain our website. Those of you who have been around awhile have surely noticed the greatly improved reliability, speed and forum features implemented since July 2010.

      Those changes were not and are not cheap. However, we made the investment for a fast, feature rich, reliable forum that our members can enjoy on several different levels.

      To join, just follow this link: http://www.birdphotographers.net/forums/payments.php

      Here is a complete (almost:o) list of member benefits.
