Announcement of Transfer of Ownership of the Forum

Dear Forum Friends,

As you all have started to figure out, I have transferred the ownership of the Hav Forum. It was not an easy decision, but one I had to make. You all know I have not had time to manage it properly and it has cost me a good amount of money each month to keep it going.

You will see that things are not going to be THAT different here. In my talks with Vertical Scope, they want the members to be happy and keep things running smoothly like they have been.

THERE WILL BE NO PUPPY SALES ON THE FORUM!!!! Any talks of that has been pure rumor. I am still going to be here and be a part of the forum.

I do hope before anyone gets upset or jumps to conclusions they will ask questions first before posting negative things. I am sure they will be quick to answer any quesitons.

I love all you guys and your furry babies. Lets keep it a happy place.

Ask me anything you want here.

Hi everyone,

Yung here.. I will be the new community admin here. Firstly, I want to apologize for how you guys have had to "find out." It was not our intention to do this.

I am here mainly as a tech help but I will also assist in the day to day moderation of this community if I'm needed. This isn't a one man show -- I will work with the mods together to continue keeping this place as the great and loving community it is.

Will they be charging for us to be members of this forum in the future?

Will they honor our requests to NOT use our pictures, video's and stories we want to post or have posted in the past?

I'd like to know the same thing about my pictures, captions, comments etc. If I don't get a definitive answer on this I will be leaving the Forum

I will be leaving with you. This is unacceptable for me.

As for the question of ownership of content, let me make one thing clear: WE DO NOT OWN your photos, videos, articles. You own them. They are yours. We do not (and have never) resold any content posted on our sites. From a logical standpoint, it's available for anyone to grab if you really think about it.

We do reserve the right to remove or keep content that is posted on the site.

I hope this clears up any confusion or worries. We have nothing to hide. We're here because we want to ensure that this community stays running and growing!

In the communities we manage, we have acquired some sites where there were paid memberships already and we have introduced paid memberships on other sites we manage. However, any paid membership we introduce is 100% OPTIONAL. The paid memberships offer technical related perks in return (for example, more Private Messaging storage space).

This community will be 100% free to use.

As for not using your pictures, videos and stories, I'm not sure what you mean by this. We don't use your pictures, videos or stories for anything except what you see on this site.
