    You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages. You cannot represent anyone other than yourself.

    1. Use Prime Time Language– Our site is Family Friendly, Foul & inappropriate (aka nasty) language is removed as soon as we find it, and folks who post bad language can be banned from the site. If you run across them first, report it asap to the web address above and it will be investigated asap.

    guideline to remember, If it would be bleeped on Prime Time local tv, (not cable) then, don’t say it; if it wouldn’t be bleeped out, then please don’t report it.

    2. No threatening, abusive or harassing comments. Be kind to others.

    Please don’t forget that you are talking to living feeling human beings on these boards! The internet can be dehumanizing and you may be tempted to say things on the board that you would never say to someone’s face.

    3. No slanderous or libelous posts – Knowingly making false claims about a company, organization or an individual are prohibited.

    4. While we encourage lively debate, we will not tolerate personal attacks. Any person attacking another visitor will receive a warning and have their message removed. Any future incident thereafter will result in that member being removed from the forum.

    Harassing, offensive, vulgar, abusive, hateful or bashing communications – including those aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, national origin, or disability will absolutely not be tolerated.

    5. Do not engage in “flame-wars” or excessive exchange of confrontational postings. Debate is important, but users should not try to “pick a fight.”

    We consider these posters as TROLLS & they are treated as such. To that end, posters who are overly negative and/or who actively seek to cause trouble will be given considerably less leeway when it comes to these rules.

    6. No advertising or product marketing
    – No commercial ads allowed.

    An advertisement is categorized as an outright attempt to solicit business. Any such posts may be removed, the user will be banned.

    7. Linking – Links to personal or business webpages is not permitted in the forums or blogs, except in your user profile. Links to competitor sites that offer similar content are not permitted.

    Links to external sites is not permitted in signature lines at all, unless prepaid.

    • referral posts are permitted only in the referrals forum.

    the posting of copyrighted, trademarked, or otherwise protected material is strictly prohibited. if you are going to post a reference article from a copyrighted online source, please limit it to just a few lines, followed by a link to the source.

    if you’re attempting to share a recipe, please put the recipe in your own words. while budget101.com has been online for nearly 15 years, many sites come and go, linking often results in broken links/missing data that we have no control over. To avoid this issue and to also prevent both sites from being penalized by search engines for link farming practices, linking is not permitted.

    8. No spamming – Do not post the same message repeatedly

    9. Keep all religious/political comments/posts in the gloves are off anything goes forum.

    10. You participate at your own risk on this message board. You take responsibility for postings under your username and use the information provided here at your own risk.

    11. Your ip address is logged when you use the message board. if your messages are deemed harmful, your account, e-mail address, and ip address can be banned from entering the site again.

    we reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. we reserve the right to remove your access to the forum or disable your posting ability for any or no reason whatsoever.

    oh my goodness! i was on another forum, similar to this one, and all of the people were so harsh! if there was a copy post, like someone reposted a freebie, so many names were called!

    i couldn’t believe it! all of the screen names were like “mommyof5” “mamaof2” “momx2”.. granted i know most people do let certain words slip, but it seemed like every other word something that their moms would blush about..

    goodness.. some people! i’m telling you..

  • #423986

    The Big Family is a very appealing part that I like to hear. It sounds like this site will be rewarding in the fact that the forum is not a battlegournd. Think I will pull up a chair and stay awhile.

    I m sure many of you are like me and one of the first things you do in the morning is head here and check out the new post. Along with seeing the new posts, I’m also always checking out the blog roll rss feed and watching them grow, or shrink sometimes. In one of my past …but all in all excellent site. Keep it up!

    Forum & Blog Rules listed are reasonable. No one can say that user’s have not been warned. Thank you

  • #434198

    It is nice to know that these rules are in place. So many sites do not have any rules and then people get hurt. If we all learn to support one another, we will all be more successful.

    Probably your best bet is to just read a few of the blogs and get an idea of the “flavor” of the posts for ideas.

  • #437874

    Good basic info and should be used without needing to be told. Glad to see it part of the program.

    I really appreciate the rules. It’s sad that there is so much disrespect today and rules are necessary. But they are and I’m thankful for them.

    Thank you!

  • #447553

    I like the way you have this set up and explained.
