The Responsibility of The Forum

As I was sitting here realizing I hadn't even checked into my work e-mail yet- It hit me what a sense of community and responsibility I feel to check into this Forum daily (hourly is more like it.)

so here are the code of ethics I think we all share.

1) Check in with The Forum several times a day (once a day is mandatory, unless away from a computer --and if you are going to be gone more than a week you must let us know so we don't worry)
2) Give advice when you can, learn when you can't.
3) Be sure to check in with those whose Hav's are having problems.
4) Be sure to congratulate milestones (1000 posts, etc)
5) Be sure to participate in the Monthly photo challenges
6) Be sure to laugh with each other often.
7) Always enable MHS at all costs- even if you have to PM.
8) Do your part and post as many pictures and/or videos of your pups as possible-
This is especially important if
a) you were lucky enough to be part of a playdate
or b) you have a litter of puppies- in which case, weekly updates are truly appreciated


Have I left anything out?

Thanks all, I never thought I would love and care for a group of people I have never met. (of course I never thought I would love a poop eater either --LOL)

Missy,
What a nice post! I think it is mandatory to get a photo in for each photo challenge. We took the girls for a drive yesterday and I saw a fall set up and I was so bummed my husband wouldn't stop and I said, I haven't gotten October in and it is half way through!

Missy, I think you covered it all, except something about Playdates.

Playdates MUST be photographed and posted ASAP for everyone to enjoy.

Missy, I think that is a great post! I do like the idea of adding Amanda's idea. I am sooo bad about pictures in the monthly challenge, but I sooo enjoy them.

Oct.'s pictures this month are just awesome, and I was going to take a picture just didn't get to it, I still have a few weeks.

I wish we could post that somewhere where is would stay in site of members.
