    Forum Rules: Read Before Posting!





    Our community is a peaceful community for families & lovers of animals.


    Although the administrators and moderators of the Pets Can Talk Too (PTT) Community will attempt to keep all objectionable messages and posts off this forum, it is impossible for us to review every message, topic and post. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners nor the staff at PTT will be held responsible for the content of any messages, topics or posts. If you see a post, topic, blog or any content you find to be questionable, please report it to PTT staff by hitting the report button that is located on each post.





    Don't Bully Other Members
    Do not advertise pets for sale*
    (*this includes hints or words that show intent to sell, selling is implied, or that they are for sale)
    No racism, foul language or blood/gore
    No pornography or sexual content of any kind
    Do not become confrontational or the topic will be closed
    Do not post unsponsored links to other websites


    If you are not sure if your post would be deemed appropriate, please contact one of our staff members to find out if it is allowed. Usually though, if you are questioning it, then you probably should not post it.


    Many of our members offer advice on health issues. You should always seek the advice of your veterinarian with any information you find here, and PTT cannot be held accountable for misinformation or bad advice given as each pet owner has different experiences.


    In Technical Terms:


    Code of Conduct:


    To allow the PTT community to develop and grow in a healthy and respectful fashion, we have some rules that everyone here needs to follow. Unfortunately, anyone who cannot follow these rules may be banned from using the sites.


    You are prohibited from engaging in any of the following:


    1.) Deceptive or misleading practices


    2.) Postings that contain fraudulent statements or misrepresentations that could damage us or any third party


    3.) Postings that contain any statements or materials that disparage, ridicule or scorn us or any third party


    4.) Taking any action, uploading, posting, streaming or transmitting any content, language, images or sound in any form, communication, public profile or other publicly viewable areas that the PTT Staff, in its sole discretion, finds offensive, hateful or vulgar. This includes any content or communications that the PTT Staff in its sole discretion deems to be racially, ethnically, religiously, or sexually offensive, libelous, defaming, threatening, bullying, harassing, predatory, pornographic, stalking, or encourages conduct that would violate any law or is otherwise inappropriate


    5.) Organizing hate groups


    6.) Impersonating that of another person


    7.) Uploading, posting, streaming or transmitting any content that contains any viruses, worms, spyware, time bombs or other computer programs that may damage, interfere with or disrupt the Sites or computers or other users


    8.) Causing disruption to the Sites or any system, hardware, software or network connected to the Sites


    9.) Attempting to hack or reverse engineer any code or equipment in connection with the site


    10.) Making a false report of user abuse to the PTT staff


    11.) Violating any local, state or national law


    12.) Is protected by trademark, copyright, patent or trade secret or subject to third-party proprietary rights, including rights of privacy and publicity - unless you are or have permission from the rightful owner


    13.) Taking any action that we consider to be disruptive to the normal flow of chat or other activities on the sites, including uploading, posting, streaming or transmitting any unsolicited or unauthorized material, including junk mails, SPAM, excessive mails or chain letters


    14.) Distributing commercial content such as advertisements, solicitations, promotions and links to other websites. To elaborate, if you want to post a particular product you use, please either use E bay, Amazon, or one of our sponsors stores to show the product. All other links will be removed.


    Also, do not post links to competitors websites (bulldog forums & websites) as this will help put them in front of us in search engine rankings.


    If you sell a product or service, you can however, advertise within your user profile. Please see the "Allowable Content & Advertising" section below.


    If you are interested in sponsoring our site, please contact the webmaster at admin@petscantalktoo.com


    Allowable links:
    YouTube
    Wikipedia
    Articles and Information from Non-Competitor websites
    E bay
    Amazon
    Photobucket, Imageshack and other image hosting sites
    Your Facebook, Twitter and other social media




    15.) Solicitation of business or engaging in any commercial activity on the Sites (with the exception being your own user profile)


    16.) Impersonating any person, including the PTT Staff or any third party


    17.) Using, making or distributing unauthorized software or hardware in conjunction with the Sites, or taking or using any data from the Sites to design, develop or update unauthorized software or hardware


    18.) Do not advertise puppies or dogs for sale* on the forums!
    (*this includes hints or words that show intent to sell, or that they are for sale)
    This is a no toleration policy and will result in an immediate ban.


    The owners and staff of the PTT Community reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread; or ban or restrict any member, for any reason, and without any warning.




    Allowable Content & Advertising


    The only area of the sites we allow promotion of your own website or business is in your user profile. There is a field in your user profile to enter the name of your URL, and places to post visitor messages to those who click on your profile. To give your profile more exposure, you should post. Those who post often in our forums get more profile visits.


    Other websites do not allow you to even talk about, or show photos of items or services that could be sold. We do allow postings of Bulldog puppies, but you cannot show them as being for sale. All postings displayed in an "advertising fashion", will be removed from the public view. If you want to know if someone is selling their puppies, you should contact them via Private Message only. If they post "Are they for sale?", then the post will be removed.


    The reason we are giving some limitations regarding this is because the last thing we want here at PTT is for scammers, puppy mills and spammers to use our site to sell pets. Nor do we wish to be the ones to have guided anyone to such places.




    User Generated Content:


    Our site has tools that allow you to communicate with other users and to create, post, upload, share and distribute various forms of content for and in connection with the Sites, including pictures, photographs, videos and other information or materials (collectively, "User Generated Content"). Keep in mind that User Generated Content does not include your blog and message board postings. If you post your insights, ideas, opinions and comments on our blog site or message boards, you cannot prevent the PTT Community or other members of the community from using them, and you give your consent to the PTT Community and anyone else to use your posts in any manner.


    LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR USER GENERATED CONTENT


    If you post, upload or make available any User Generated Content on our Sites, you will still own the User Generated Content (assuming you have rights to own it) but you are giving us the right to use your User Generated Content. If you create, transfer, share, send, submit, post or upload any User Generated Content to our Sites, you grant us certain rights to use it (described below) without getting your further permission or having to pay you for it.


    In legal terms, by transferring, sharing, sending, submitting, posting, uploading or making available User Generated Content to these Sites, you grant the PTT Community a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and fully sub-licensable license to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, adapt, translate, archive, store, and create derivative works from your User Generated Content, in any form, format or medium of any kind now known or later developed, both on these Sites and other online locations, and in other forms or media off the internet. You waive any moral rights you might have with respect to any User Generated Content you provide to us.


    In addition, by transferring, sharing, sending, submitting, posting, uploading or making available User Generated Content to these Sites, you acknowledge that other users of the Sites may user your User Generated Content. The PTT Community is not responsible for enforcing any rights you may have with respect to your User Generated Content against other users. If you have a dispute regarding this with another user of the site, you are responsible for contacting the other user directly; do not contact the PTT Community.


    Privacy Policy:


    Pets Can Talk Too keeps your e-mail address only for communications with PTT. We will never give your e-mail address to a third party without permission of the user. All communication preferences with Pets Can Talk Too can be set up within your user profile as well.


    Pets Can Talk Too uses 3rd party advertisements to generate income to pay for the website server and software costs. This website cannot exist without them, therefore we must keep them on our site. Cookies within your computer will store sites visited and we do not in any way support any advertisers claims. Any problems you have with any 3rd party advertiser needs to addressed to them, and PTT does not hold any responsibility for any legal claims.
