    Default Real Names and Posting on RTF - Announcement...PLEASE READ!

    Guys and Gals,

    RTF is here for adding value to the retriever community.

    All users of RTF must be willing to be accountable for their words and actions that they place on this forum. There are a few reasons that "real names" are not an absolute requirement for all RTF users. They are valid. For now, this will remain the way here. Real names are not a requirement...today.

    That said, all users must be willing to provide to RTF administration, their true and accurate contact information upon request. If you are unwilling to do this, your priveleges as an RTF poster will be removed. If you are unwilling to comply, please do not post on this forum.

    Users are entitled to one registered name per individual. Folks posting under more than one username will be permanently banned from RTF posting priveleges. Qui Chang Trainer is grandfathered-in and is exempt from this. (many of us miss him... or is it her? ) For those of you who want to come clean, create a new Username, and get away from past trouble-making behaviors, please come to me directly and we'll work it out. This is not a "witch hunt". This is a simple effort to keep RTF chugging along as the value-adding resource that it is... I'm looking to cut out the extremely small amont of nonsense that we have here from time-to-time.

    Guys and gals, this board is here for all sorts of benefit. It is not here to take the place of judges, juries, or legal systems in the case of buyer/seller disputes. RTF is not here as a place to attack or defame others. It is not here to promote or use profanity or pornographic content.

    As some of you have seen me write before, please use RTF, and write about others as you would like to have others write about you. (I've called it "the golden rule" before... Golden Retriever fans, seem to like this)

    Thanks to all of you for the vast majority of the RTF usage. IT is beneficial to all of the retriever community.

    Each and every one of you makes this board what it is.

    Special thanks are in order to RTF moderators, both past and present, including: Vicky Trainor, Shayne Mehringer, Chris Kingrea, Jerry Harris and Lee Salmon.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Atkinson

    Yeah, you would !

    Another question for the administrators: I noticed that I've been classified a "senior member". How did that get determined, and what are the other classifications?

    It makes me feel very old

    Most Honourable Chris Atkinson,

    Lowly Qui Chang, poor execuse for one who formerly cared for Great Animals that I am, is not worthy of your kindness. Your Apple Cart, Great Friend, is balanced on the edge of a knife. While I wish not to add to your burdens, I thank you for your friendship.

    It has been some long time since we have met on the Road To The Great Gathering, Dear Friend. Ours lives, once joined by common passions, have gone their different ways. Perhaps, in time, I will restart my journey to the spot where The Sun Shines Brightest and we will meet in common fellowship once again. I look forward to that moment.

    Until then, Great Friend.

    I remain,

    Your Faithful Servant,

    Qui Chang Trainer
