    The number one goal of the site is to discuss walking, hiking, trekking, backpacking and camping. The rules and decisions are made to protect this goal over all else.

    The Forum Rules govern use of the forums. You are also responsible for observing the forum rules and Guidelines. Members should observe both the letter and the spirit of these rules.

    You are responsible for only your posts. If another member breaks rules, you may ignore them or report the problem to the moderators, but you may not use it as an excuse to break rules yourself or to try and moderate other members.

    Volunteer moderators help us manage the forums and enforce the forum rules. The site can get busy at times and the moderators cannot be expected to read every post so they rely on members to report problems that they encounter. The point of moderation is not to limit discussion, promote or suppress points of view, or any other personal or political agenda. The goal of moderation is to keep the forums enjoyable and free from problems that detract from the experiences of our users.
