Code of Conduct for the Leatherwall
The popularity of our archery related sites have necessitated a list of rules that all contributors to this forum must adhere to. These rules are to ensure that people participating in these forums are treated with respect and enjoy a positive experience. The rules are incontestable. People found in violation of this code may have their names removed from the database. Second offenders may be unable to make future contributions or visits.
There are a number of editors who monitor this forum. While we strive for fairness and objectivity, editing is a subjective process that is not perfect - and may seem inconsistent from editor to editor. We simply can not catch every violation of our rules with the hundreds of posts made each day. For this reason, we ask that you assist us by reporting violators to our policy at [email protected]. Posts that are visible do not necessarily mean that they have been reviewed by our editors and meet our criteria for acceptance.
Contributions to this system by our visitors do not necessarily reflect the views of Bowsite.com, Stickbow.com, our advertisers, our editors, or any other entity affiliated with the PLNet LLC companies. We make no assertions to their credibility, truthfulness, or accuracy. All contributions are the responsibility of the person who submitted them as stated in their registration and posting agreement.
The staff of The Bowsite and Stickbow reserve the right to remove any post, topic, or person for any reason we see fit, and to allow exceptions to this policy at any time at our discretion.
