Would everyone please......

post #1 of 202
Thread Starter 

.....remember that a great number of our members are minors. Please remember that certain subjects are inappropriate.
Some parents out there appreciate the fact that BYC is family friendly and they shouldn't have to worry that their children are getting an adult education on a chicken board before they are ready to talk to their kids. Whether "kids these days are educated beyond belief" or not is not the point. It is not for anyone on this board to educate them...deliberately or not.

Adult topics and jokes
HUMAN Sexual based topics
HUMAN Reproduction and related topics.
Ethnic and racial slurs and jokes.

All this is inappropriate for BYC. There are many other message boards more suitable for such topics.

Thank you.

Agreed!

We encourage open and friendly discussion on a great variety of topics.   We even support non-chicken related topics in the appropriate sections.   With that said, we are committed to keeping BYC family friendly and as accessible to as many people, of all ages, as possible.

I have to agree with Terrie. This is a chicken board, and we're all here to talk about chickens, after all.

awe.. I hope this isn't cause of me:(  We were making jokes about breastfeeding and I guess things got a little wild.  I'm sorry if I said anything over the top. 

Im sure my friends and family could all agree it wouldn't be the first time.  I'll try to keep it a bit more 4-h cool

I was actually banned from a chicken forum for being under 16 (partly my fault for not reading the rules but I mean why would they put an age restriction on a chicken forum). I was so surprised that on a chicken forum they talk about more than just chickens :o. So thank you terrielacy and all mods (and Nifty) for keeping this forum familly friendly hugs.

We don't want to discourage anybody from enjoying themselves on the forum.  The social aspect of BYC is what makes it so great!   Everything from the BYC Mascots  to "faces with a name".

We all just need to keep working together to keep this place fun while maintaining family friendliness.

I like to think that in supporting BYC I'm helping to encourage the very young into a bit of the farm life, even if they live in the city.  Chickens can do that, and to make that work for us we need to be open minded to every type of chicken keeping, and to be very family friendly.  Of course the chicken information can be used by anyone of any age, but it makes me personally smile the most when a child finds us here and gets the information they need to get a chicken hobby going in the family, or to join 4H or just have a neat pet.  I hope everyone understands that it's not that those topics are totally taboo in my mind, just that in the rules we agreed that they are not to be here.
