Do not post any material that is defamatory, discriminatory, inaccurate, abusive, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, violate of copyright laws, or otherwise violate of any law.
Be polite and respectful. If you disagree with someone's post, keep your comments focused on what they said. Do not attack the person. If you feel that you have been attacked by another forum member, please discontinue the conversation and send a private message to the Forum Administrator describing the attack. Do not discuss it with other forum members. (Please keep in mind that a difference of opinion does not constitute an attack.)
Make an effort to post to the appropriate board. Posts which are on the wrong board will be moved to the correct board by the Forum Administrator.

Update: Political posts are no longer permitted on the Waltons Forum. Beginning November 6, 2017, any post of a political nature will be removed by the Forum Administrator.
Signature Images and Keepers
Forum members should preferably have only one signature image. However, up to 3 images will be allowed if they are small in size.
Each forum member can be the “keeper” of only one item, person, animal, idea or concept that relates to The Waltons. It should be something related to The Waltons that has personal meaning to you. Please check Daniela’s frequently updated List of Keepers to see what has been claimed by other forum users.
Members should post an introductory post and visit the forum regularly for a period of 2 weeks before asking to become a keeper. Please post keeper requests in the List of Keepers thread.
The Forum Administrator reserves the right to remove the keeper banner of any Forum member who is absent from the forum for a period of 6 months. Likewise, the Forum Administrator reserves the right to remove any signature images which are not in adherence to these rules.
The forum administrator reserves the right to ban any user who does not follow the rules of this forum.
These rules are subject to change at any time, with no explanation, depending on the changing needs of the forum or the mood of the Forum Administrator.
