Welcome to CalgaryMomsCommunity.com
In order for Calgary Moms Community to work we do need some rules and regulations for all members to follow. Yeah, Yeah, Rules suck.. but we want to keep Calgary Moms a friendly & fun place for moms!
Where we can come and not be bombarded with spam and have lookie loos that don't "really" want to be a member here. They just want to "sell" something or just lurk.
Please Note: These Rules and Regulations are Subject to Change.
When registering only use one member name. Do not use more than one member name in this community. Members are not permitted to have more than one username. If you have a problem with logging on please do not sign up for another username - send a pm to the site administrator.
Members are not permitted to let anyone else access their account – only you can post with your member name.
All new members must introduce themselves in the introduction thread

Chain letters or anything similar is not allowed on Calgary Moms we don't know where to draw the line as to what is and what is NOT a chain letter. Anything that is copied and pasted would be considered one and it will be removed without notice.
Foul Language, Bullying and Bashing
We are all entitled to our different opinions but remember to keep your language clean. We will not tolerate bad language or derogatory comments toward anyone.
Threads that have inappropriate posts may at any time be closed. One warning will be issued in the thread first. If the inappropriate posts keep occurring the post will be closed. If the original poster requests the post be closed for any reason, the post might be closed depending on the situation.
The post that is closed will include an explanation as to why it was closed.
Certain posts may be moved to other areas of the forum if deemed inappropriate in the original forum. An explanation will be made in the post where it was moved to and a redirect (link in the original forum) will be issued for up to 5 days.
All threads that are reported by a member (see paragraph below) and which contain any bashing, bullying or personal attacking of fellow moms, include name calling, violates anyone’s human rights, or that are deemed as an advertisement will be removed from the boards.
Bullying is not welcome. A member deemed to be bullying other members will receive one warning. If after that warning the member chooses to continue to bash, bully or personally attack any other member the bullying member will be banned from the forum permanently.
