Default IFF Member Pledge

Following on from a previous thread

Http://falconryforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=103817

When making use of the IFF whether I'm an owner, administrator, moderator or member, I pledge to:
  • accept the "Terms and Conditions" of the IFF
  • Respect and treat other members as I would like to be respected and treated
  • Behave like an adult and not a child
  • Accept that there are people from different backgrounds, countries and cultures on the IFF
  • Accept that certain practises in other countries might not be acceptable to me or legal in my county but they are in other countries
  • Accept that other people have rights and opinions too, and even if I don't agree with them I will respect their views and opinions
  • Accept that even if I think I might be God's gift to man/woman kind others have this right to
  • Accept that my falconry aspirations might not be other falconers aspirations
  • Respect others falconry like I expect them to respect my falconry
  • Accept that there are many different ways of training a hawk and my way is not the only way
  • Accept that I have the right to ignore people I dislike or be ignored by people that dislike me
  • Not stalk other members
  • Gang up on other members
  • Accept a ban or other disciplinary measure if I have broken the T&C of the IFF
  • Not try and sneak onto the IFF under a different user-name if banned
  • Think before I post
  • Accept that the Internet can be a difficult medium to express oneself on and one can be misunderstood and as such
  • Not to jump to conclusions if I take offence or umbrage to a post but rather ask for clarity
  • Walk away instead of getting involved in a bun fight
  • Understand that moderators are also human and can make mistakes
  • Treat falconers with a bit of respect if I'm an aspiring falconer asking questions
  • Treat aspiring falconers with a bit more patience or simply ignore them if they looking to be spoon feed.
  • Behave
Please feel free to add to this list. Just maybe we can help to make this a more pleasant place to share ours and others falconry journey.

Maybe we should start behaving and respecting the fact that "FALCONRY is a Living Human Heritage"

I always wear a crash helmet and a safety harness - just in case.

Take care

Trevor, for what its worth, I'll throw a few mattresses down to break your fall. I believe I suggested such a pledge some time ago but the idea never got off the drawing board. Well done for taking the time to give it a go.

Thanks Adam

My side shows there is a poll, however I must admit it was supposed to be a public poll i.e. one can see who voted what. Could a Moderator please fix this as I must have pushed the wrong button and don't seem to be able to edit it. Thanks.

With that said I assumed all of the above when I first logged on, and stupidly thought all members thought the same. How wrong I was

Thanks Si, I might need a mattress or two lol.

I remember your suggestion. I have to be honest some of the abuse on here leaves a bad taste and in truth I'm here to enjoy my and others cyber falconry not the constant bickering.

Can you have a look at making that stupid poll "public" whatever its called.

Take care
Trev
